When Louise and Ben asked me to take their wedding photography at The Savoy I was filled with excitement. Well, who wouldn’t be? It is The Savoy after all. Of all the fine venues I have had the privilege of photographing weddings at, The Savoy in London is right up there with the best of them. I made sure I was suitably dressed for the occasion. In fact, I was probably more smartly dressed for this wedding than I was for my own wedding the following week. But I digress…
With all weddings, I try to capture the ambience of the day, giving the couple a timeless collection of photographs telling the story of their special day. As a documentary wedding photographer I am always respectful of the wedding itself. I never interfere or instigate any kind of action, I record what happens naturally in front of me. The whole of Louise and Ben’s day was beautiful and classy; from the bridal preparations at O’Sullivan’s, the ceremony and drinks reception in the Pinafore room, to the evening meal in the Savoy Grill overlooking Savoy Court. And so my photography style was a perfect fit for their day.
Although I was told by Louise and Ben that this would be a slightly quieter affair with around 35 guests and no dancing in the evening, the extremely entertaining swing singer they hired did manage to get everyone up for a twirl or two in the afternoon. This was great fun to observe, and to photograph.
I thoroughly enjoyed taking Louise and Ben’s wedding photography at The Savoy and here are a few of my favourites from their special day. Oh, and if you look very closely you’ll even see me in one of them.
