Laura and Andy’s Wedding Photographed at Soho Hotel and the Union Club

Laura and Andy’s wedding preparations took place at the hidden gem – the Soho Hotel and then on to the ceremony and reception which were held at the Union Club in Greek Street a short walk away or in this case an even shorter cab ride away!

The nearby narrow streets of Soho with cafes, graffiti, and offbeat characters (who photobombed the family photographs) made a fantastic and trendy backdrop for photography of the couple once the formal photographs were all completed.

The colourful and eclectic Union Club is a great wedding venue, now 270 years old no less, it is filled with mis-matched pictures and furniture which definitely adds to its Soho charm. The guests enjoyed smoked salmon followed by lamb cutlets – and wedding cake of course.

The evening party was kicked off with Andy (the Groom) as lead singer and electric guitar with the band (The London Riots) to much applause.

All the photographs from the day can be seen here – Soho Hotel and Union Club Wedding Photography and our favourites here – Best Wedding Photographs from Union Club.

Why Use A Professional, Documentary Photographer For Your Wedding?

Documentary Wedding Photography

I shoot weddings in a documentary style, that is with the subject being totally unaware they are being photographed. So simply put yet is in fact a very difficult thing to do, and takes many years of practice. My images have strong composition, correct exposure and can focus precisely so as to isolate the subject from his or her background.

Guests with Cameras

I see many guests at weddings with often up to the minute cameras and the latest zoom lenses, but when reviewing the images they have but a sequence of miss timed shots, poor composition and a reliance on automatic exposure, which can only lead to disappointing images. A guest with a camera is not a photographer, just a guest with a camera.

Professional and Experienced Wedding Photographer

As a professional wedding photographer who has had years of experience of shooting weddings, I have the ability to know exactly where to stand when and to catch the fleeting expression coupled with an in-depth knowledge of my cameras functions and these skills should not be underestimated. To be always ready with the correct camera and lens with no fumbling, to know what is about to happen and be standing in the perfect position to catch the moment.

Formal Photographs of the Family

Organising formal photographs of family and friends is a dark art, it is vital to be friendly enough to keep the smiles and laughter, but to have the ability to speed through a seemingly endless list in twenty minutes, getting the important shots for the mantelpiece.

Great Photographs All Day

Lastly, a photographer has to be able to take great photographs all day long, not just snatch a lucky one or two, and with that in mind please have a browse through my intentionally totally complete wedding section. This page highlights every wedding I have shot in the last five years.
