I just loved this Cheslea Old Town Hall wedding!

Yalda & Lorenzo had every INCH the stylish London wedding. I met Yalda at the Sloane Square Hotel to shoot her preparations.

This was to be a fairly short coverage wedding as the couple were having their party abroad.

Yalda wore L.K.Bennet heels an Atelier birdcage veil (she later switched this out for a Fur Coat and No Knickers headpiece at the reception) and Maison Rabih Kayrouz dress and Catherine Muller provided her beautiful flowers.

Yalda & Lorenzo broke with tradition as they walked in together which I just loved!

Once the wedding ceremony was over I had time to take the formal group photos.

Chelsea town hall is a really busy wedding venue (not a bad thing!) so groups have to be QUICK!

Yalda & Lorenzo’s family were so efficient, we even had some time afterwards to muck about a bit.

I shot the groups on the steps of the town hall which was really aesthetically pleasing, I like a bit of staggering!

Afterwards, the guests threw confetti before I took the couple off to Piccadilly Circus for some portraits.

The reception was held at the prestigious Dukes Hotel there was a beautifully crafted cake, champagne and speeches in not one, not two but THREE different languages.

I felt like I was part of something really special as each and EVERY one of the couple’s friends had such special words for them.

Yalda and Lorenzo booked me for half a day as they were having another ceremony in a whole other country.

I enjoy shorter understated affairs as much as huge grand weddings and this stylish london wedding was just brilliant!

I am not strict on timeframes when working with my couples, you only want 4 hours?  You got it!  It was a perfect amount of time for a simply perfect day!
