A 5 Star Wedding at The Dorchester • Mayfair • London Wedding Photographer •

This was the most lavish wedding celebration I have ever shot! Myself and my second shooter/lifesaver Katrina were armed with two cameras each for this event. The Bride and Groom were actually married the day before, but their celebrations had rolled into a 5 day event - we were shooting the Saturday Night. 500 guests rolled up to The Dorchester Hotel, Mayfair in the most beautiful cars and most beautiful outfits. The ballroom was decked out from head to toe, with beautiful flowers, candles and centrepieces. Lavish is a complete understatement.  The ballroom had its own technical crew for lighting, staging and sound. The amazing band were sound checking on stage next to the grand piano and massive tiered wedding cake. It really did blow my mind!

I always remember that in amongst all the decorations and beautiful venue, no matter how stunning or how glamorous, it’s still a wedding celebration and the main event were the Bride and Groom. We managed to get a first glimpse of them up in their room getting the final few details finished. Anooshe looked absolutely stunning, her original dress was beautiful, a dress very hard to forget! Edmond’s custom suit was gorgeous too (let’s not forget about the Groom!)

They were introduced to their guests on the stage as the curtains parted, food was served and speeches made in between courses. This happy couple had the honour of having a few VIP’s at their celebration, including the Prime Minister of Pakistan, and quite a few Bollywood stars! This of course made all their guests really get into the dancing after the meal! One star in particular led the festivities and got the whole room going, it was definitely a great party, and the best band I’ve ever seen (details below). I wish them the best in their married lives together, and hope that their party spirit always runs deep!
