Mandarin Oriental Wedding – Wedding Photographer London – Anna & Yassar
Mandarin Oriental Wedding
Anna & Yassar’s Mandarin Oriental Wedding was held in early September – probably my favourite month of the year. I love how the leaves start to turn a golden colour and the sun is low in the sky – it makes for gorgeous pictures. The preparations started at Anna’s and Yassar’s house and the wedding ceremony was held at the amazing St James’s church on Spanish Place, London. The church was quite a surprise. From the outside very unassuming but take a wander inside and you’ll find a wonderful example of a high church, with the most dramatic of interiors. I could not fault the priest – who let me sit quietly in the choir stalls and snap away. It makes such a huge difference to be able to shoot from the front. I was quiet and respectful of the proceedings. It was a stunning service with the most wonderful voices and songs – I had to bite my lip when Ava Maria echoed out – it was the song I walked down the aisle to.
After the wedding ceremony we made our way to the majestic Mandarin Oriental Hotel in the heart of Kensington. I love the Manadrin – the small amount of outside space at the back is well thought out and easy to work in. I made full use of their beautiful planting in the pictures.
The evening entrainment was a lot of fun – a traditional belly dancer kept the guests on their toes. It was hard to keep up with her but I loved the high energy pictures her act produced!
Here are some of my favourite images from Yassar and Anna’s Mandarin Oriental Wedding…
