Elegant London Wedding at the Royal Automobile Club, Pall Mall


Oh my goodness. Where do I start?! Everything about Hannah and Mark's wedding was right up my street! I was like an excitable child all day photographing this one. Mark from White in Motion Films is witness to that haha.

Firstly, Hannah's Kenneth Winston dress was simply incredible. It's everything I could ever dream of in a wedding dress! Lots of tulle layers, delicate and modern lace embellishment, champagne colour and stunningly elegant all day. An absolute dream to photograph and I imagine to wear too. Although, Hannah did go all out and have a second dress for the evening! Partying comes first and obviously she needed to make sure she could pull out the dance moves all evening in a non-restrictive dress! haha

The morning was super chilled and Hannah may be the most relaxed bride I've ever met! Nothing phases her and everything ran to plan. I'm sure Mark was feeling a tad more nervous than she was at this point!

They married at the stunning St Mary's Church in Wimbledon where Hannah has lived and grown up. I have to say Mark was in absolute bits when he saw Hannah walking down that aisle and I can't blame him. She was an absolute picture and a moment I will never forget.

The service was beautiful and everyone congregated outside the church afterwards to wish the newlyweds congratulations. As Hannah and Mark drove off in their vintage car to the Royal Automobile Club for their reception, all the guests jumped on the red London buses to meet them there.

The RAC club is a stunning building in Pall Mall and has vintage cars and incredible paintings throughout. Hannah and Mark were lucky enough to have their drinks reception on the gorgeous terrace outside, overlooking London which was a real treat. And the reception room was so grand and well decorated. I was blown away with all the fanciness!

After the dinner and speeches, just as the sun was going down, we thought it would be madness not to go for a little walk around Pall Mall to capture some evening shots with Hannah and Mark. It's times like this that I really see what an incredibly beautiful city we live in and feel so lucky to live so close to it. It was absolutely gorgeous to see the sun going down and the city lights illuminating over such a pretty part of town.

Hannah and Mark were super chilled all evening and really enjoyed spending a bit of quiet time together before the party kicked off when we returned to the RAC Club for the first dance. They had an awesome band called Flo Collective and everyone got stuck in on the dance floor- I can't imagine it was empty for a moment afterwards. What an incredibly elegant London Wedding at Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall.

Also, see if you can spot the twin stunt double standing in for Mark when he got bored of group photos haha.

Big thanks to Emma Hare Photography for second shooting with me on the day! And always a pleasure to work with Mark from White in Motion Films.
