June - Georgio and Steven - Ceremony AND Reception @ The Mandarin Oriental, London
Two grooms, an exquisite venue and a very clear vision... Georgio, an Italian event planner at The May Fair Hotel knows how to plan a wedding and was keen for a discreet and informal coverage of their wedding at The Mandarin Oriental. There were 130 guests, glitter canons, and more laughter and tears than any wedding I’ve ever shot. The boys were each walked down the aisle by their mothers and even the registrar was taken aback by the rapturous applause from the guests when the marriage of Husband&Husband was made official.
The guests enjoyed The Mandarin Oriental’s beautiful outdoor space sipping Moet and eating delicious canapés presented on glass boxes lined with petals (very cool), until the heavens opened and the guests took cover in vast ceremony room. The wedding breakfast was served in the wonderful ballroom which was lavished in coloured light and crystal chandeliers. The speeches were humorous and heartfelt and the first dance was EPIC. I left with a warm fuzzy feeling of having photographed the union of two very special people with fantastic friends and family, at a hotel in which the service was first rate. It was a true pleasure to photograph Georgio and Steven's Wedding.
