Our first wedding of 2012 was brilliant! Jacques & Han were married at 170 Queen’s Gate which is one of the wedding venues at Imperial College London. Although technically a winter wedding, the weather was unseasonally warm and sunny. Naturally though the sun set early so we were really pleased that Jacques & Han agreed to have some photos together before the ceremony.
The grounds at Imperial College afforded some great reflections and quality of light. The proximity of the Royal Albert Hall meant that we had to go there also for some photos on the steps.
One of the things we liked about Saturday’s wedding was the fingerprint tree that the couple got the guests to make. It’s a great idea and will have special meaning for the couple whenever they look at it.
To take them to the reception, Jacques & Han hired an old double decker London Routemaster bus. We’ve been on some of these buses with weddings before but this company’s bus was entirely authentic and the service was excellent. We have no hesitation in recommending thisbus.com.
The wedding reception was held at the Latium Italian Restaurant in Berners Street off of London’s Oxford Street. The food is incredibly good. From a photographic perspective, we really liked the huge glass window that allowed us to shoot inside the kitchen. The photo near the end of this post where you see a waiter watching the skill of Chef Maurizio is one of our favourite photos of all time.
