Savile Club wedding photography – This is a really special wedding and I’m very happy to share these photographs. Sarah and Douglas are very lovely, relaxed people and their London wedding (at the incredible Savile Club) was absolutely amazing. There were lots of great details….for example, a pork pie wedding cake! I’ve been to 200+ weddings and therefore have seen a lot of different things, but I’ve never seen a pork pie wedding cake before. Brilliant. And very practical as a post-dancing snack. The flowers were also some of the best I’ve seen at a wedding. The Savile Club is beautiful, very grand and ornate and although the initial plan had been for minimalist flowers, Sarah and Douglas chose brilliant, dramatic arrangements, which created a real ‘wow’ factor.
I love Savile Club wedding photography because it is such a stunning venue, and the grand staircase has to be one of my favourite venue features. The last wedding I photographed there was a beautiful candlelit winter wedding, and it was great to see a different side to the venue on a lovely summer spring day. The windows are huge so sunshine poured through them (and natural light is so great for photography).
All was calm and relaxed when I arrived to photograph Sarah and her friends getting ready. Slightly confusingly, whilst Sarah was putting on her dress there were four people in the room….and all of us were called Sarah. My favourite moment of the wedding was seeing Sarah and her dad walk down the grand staircase and on down the aisle – such a lovely dramatic entrance (and slight pressure for Sarah and her heels, but she managed amazingly!).
After the ceremony the guests enjoyed drinks on the terrace whilst Sarah, Douglas and I popped outside for a few wedding photographs on the streets of London. We headed to Grosvenor Square (which is very close, although harder for Sarah in her Louboutins than for me in my flats!). We couldn’t walk for more than a few steps without people stopping to compliment the beautiful bride and groom (one lady even gasped ‘Is it real or is it a photoshoot?!’).
I feel very lucky to be invited to photograph such beautiful weddings, and weddings like this really bring home to me what a dream job I have. Congratulations Douglas and Sarah, and I wish you every happiness in your married life.
