London Waldorf Hotel Wedding
London Waldorf Hotel Wedding – Jo & Dan’s Amazing Day.
I had been looking forward to Dan and Jo’s London Waldorf Hotel Wedding for ages. We had planned, we had spoken and now at last the day was almost there. The day didn’t get off to the most amazing start for me, I had lost power during the night due to the ferocious storms. This meant driving around at gone midnight trying to find someone with power to finish charging my camera batteries for the wedding the next day. It was a very scary hour! But lucky my friend’s son came to the rescue. The next morning the power was still off. Now I love to look nice when shooting weddings, I hate tuning up looking scruffy and so washing my hair in the sink, with no blow dry afterwards was frankly horrifying! But as long as I could get there, it would all be OK because the most important thing was capturing Dan and Jo’s day.
Well, what a day it was. It was my first time shooting a London Waldorf Hotel Wedding – which is suprising to say the least, after 21 years of shooting in and around London, you would have thought the Waldorf would have surfaced by now. With this is mind, I arrived an hour early to meet the amazing events manager Delphine Boisard, who shows me around. I then formed a plan of where I was going to shoot Jo and Dan’s couples pictures and groups. The Palm Court where the ceremony was being held and also where the meal was going to be was fantastic, filled with gorgeous natural light. Perfect for the groups and also for some couple’s portraits.
I knew Jo was keen on having some pictures outside and at the time the weather wasn’t great, a drizzle. But if it cleared up I’d decided to use the entrance of The Waldorf Hilton. It had some lovely features and I was sure that with the right angles, I could lose most of the public which were in the street.
So with my plan in place, it was now time to go and see Jo and the girls. I have split this post into two, because there was just so much to share. So here are my favourites from Jo and Dan’s London Waldorf Hotel Wedding….
