London Hotel wedding photographer

Utter. Bloody. Film. Stars. That’ll be Jacqui + Henry then, smouldering both literally and metaphorically in the outrageous heat of last weekend in London.

We’d met when I shot Zarni + Matt’s wedding at The Dorchester last year, when Henry was Matt’s best man, and I was thrilled when they booked me shortly afterwards. This is a lovely, lovely friendship group and to be asked back for a second spectacular London wedding was quite the honour. Great to see Zarni + Matt again and massive congratulations to you both on the great work news, your move to Liverpool, and for your soon-to-be first anniversary!

Deciding to drive up to take full advantage of my car’s AC (and to avoid the heat of the underground) I arrived to find the day in full swing. Henry and his groomsmen downstairs in the bar (with Keir Starmer and David Milliband meeting a few feet away), and Jacqui and her bridesmaids upstairs readying themselves. A wonderful ceremony and reception and brilliant speeches followed. A massive thanks to all of them for their help, and particularly to Izzy for judicious use of that portable fan through the day! Also to Mery and her team at the hotel for being great to work with, to John on the music side for an excellent natter during the meal, and to a fellow wedding photographer Luis, Jacqui’s cousin, who was there as a guest with his lovely family. 

Jaqui + Henry are another couple who met in their late teens - that seems to have been a theme of 2023 - and to say they are right for each other doesn’t even begin to do it justice. They fit so well, and then some. Today they threw a party for those closest to them and threw virtual ice-cubes down the vest of that mad September heatwave. I was lucky enough to spend the day watching it all unfold.

Once again, this job. SO good, so so good. A bit like Jacqui + Henry….
