Diamond Wedding at the Belvedere Restaurant

Anniversary lunch in Holland Park

Here are a few photographs from a Diamond wedding celebration at the Belvedere restaurant in Holland Park. The happy couple, along with their family and friends enjoyed exclusive use of the Belvedere which is an excellent venue for parties, weddings and celebrations.

There were around 90 guests made up of several generation of family and friends. Whilst the adults were seated in the main dining area downstairs, a special table was set upstairs on the Belvedere’s mezzanine floor to accommodate the children.

You can see from these photographs how photogenic the venue is with its Art Deco interior offering a sympathetic backdrop for the contemporary art that is hung there. Although most of my work here is capturing the Belvedere as a wedding venue it also makes an elegant location for other celebrations too.

Emi & Sho Engagement Shoot in London

Regents Park Engagement Shoot

Here are some images from an engagement shoot in London that I photographed earlier this summer. Emi and Sho are Japanese ex-pats working here in London and for their engagement shoot they really wanted to have photographs taken around their neighbourhood near Regents Park. As you can see it was a gloriously sunny day in London and

The couple were married the next month at Nonsuch Mansion and you can see some of the wonderful photographs from that day here.

To take a look at all of the photographs from this engagement shoot (and many others) visit this page of my website.

Corporate Party at Addington Palace

All the Fun of the Fair at Addington Palace

I recently photographed a corporate party at Addington Palace. The hosts, McMillan Williams Solicitors, invited their staff along to Addington Palace for an evening of food, drink and dancing but the highlight of the evening had to be the funfair that was set up in front of the palace!
There were dodgems and a couple of other rides that threw people around at dizzying speed.
Addington Palace is also a great wedding venue and I’m looking forward to shooting a few there next year.
