I was so excited to be photographing my first ever wedding at The Shard, London in the Shangri-La Hotel, and it exceeded all my expectations. Sarrah and Vivek chose the 5 star Shangri-La hotel, set high up on level 34 of The Shard, for its spectacular views of London, it was the perfect choice for their intimate civil wedding and reception.
My morning started off with Vivek getting ready in one of the suites inside the Shangri-La, who was then later joined by his close friends, where they opened a bottle of whiskey together and shared plenty of laughs. I then went to document Sarrah getting ready, before capturing their beautiful ceremony. After the ceremony, it was onto the cake cutting, before everyone headed into the ballroom for their evening meal, a couple of great speeches, and then some crazy dancing.
Sarrah and Vivek are two amazing people with big hearts, and its easy to see why they are surrounded by such a close unit of family & friends. Their civil wedding at the Shangri La, London, had everything I love about weddings, emotion, love, loads of humour and epic dancing, everything I could ever want from a wedding. Even though, there was amazing views, gorgeously styled decor by Becky from Floco Flowers, a ginormous wedding cake by Karisha from Creme De La Cakes, for me a wedding is all about the people, happy smiling people that are in love with each other and having an awesome time with their family and friends, and this wedding was exactly that.
The Shangri-La is an amazing venue, so much glamour and glitz surrounding this beautiful 5 star hotel, and it was such an honour to be able to document Sarrah and Vivek’s wedding there. Here are some of my favourite moments from their day.
I had an amazing time shooting a wedding at The Shangri, London, it was the perfect setting for any Wedding Ceremony. If you’re planning on having a wedding in London, or anywhere else in the world, then please get in touch. I’d love to hear all about it and have the opportunity to be your wedding photographer.
