See, You cant beat a London wedding. Mayfair weddings, Shoreditch weddings, Kensington weddings and all the other fantastic boroughs of my favourite place. But Dartmouth House in Mayfair is somewhere I’ve shot weddings on numerous occasions. The preparations are supported seamlessly by the great team there. The rooms lend themselves perfectly to a lovely sized group of guests and and the location is just a dream.
Janine prepared in the blue room downstairs at Dartmouth with her lovely bridesmaids dressing in Vera Wang alongside Janine’s stunning Stuart Parvin dress. Her family and friends arriving and making their way up the grand staircase towards the panelled Churchill room where they would be getting married in just an hour.
Janine and Owen decided to meet before the ceremony for a ‘first look’; him waiting in the opposite room in his dapper tweed suit, their eyes lit up when they saw each other, me feeling very lucky to have seen this moment.
After a romantic ceremony all the guests relaxed in the courtyard before retiring to dinner , Owen making a stop along the way to play the piano and sing to Janine while the guests looked on, a few with a tear in their eyes.
These two were joined by their Welsh and Scottish families, the Dartmouth House flags outside commemorating this on the Mayfair street, and they celebrated and danced the night away in true Celtic style.
Such a lovely bunch of people and a truly special couple. x
