Hotel Cafe Royal Wedding Photography

Karen & Ali chose the glamorous Hotel Cafe Royal in Central London, right on the famous Regent Street. A 5 star hotel close to Mayfair and Soho, it has been delighting guests for 150 years. It certainly didn’t disappoint.

A wedding at this luxurious location is the height of London sophistication. Guests can be wowed by the incredible gold and mirrored Pompadour Suite before relaxing on the terrace and watching Regent Street waft by.

Karens day began with her friends and family in their suite. The hotel looked amazing while I took the opportunity to photograph the wedding dress, shoes, rings and flowers. I captured the fun and laughter as it happened.

As Ali arrived at the hotel, Karen was nearly ready for her groom .. just the wedding dress, veil and she was escorted down the grand staircase by her father.

As they entered the Pompadour Suite, they were overjoyed to see each other and exchanged loving glances as the registrar conducted the ceremony.

Signing of the register was the final official duty, before they walked back up the aisle showered in confetti.

The afternoon reception began in the Oscar Wilde bar. It’s an incredibly luxurious mirrored and gilded room. Congratulations and a few canapes later and they were ready for their couple portraits, group photographs and to join guests in the wedding breakfast room.

They entered to rapturous applause and took their seats for the speeches began. It was fantastic to capture the expressions of joy, laughter and pure emotion as they heard what friends and family had to say.

The final duties of the day were to cut the grand wedding cake and perform their first dance for their guests, who quickly joined them to dance the night away.


It would be lovely to hear about how you’re planning to celebrate your marriage, so please get in touch.
