Hotel Cafe Royal Wedding

Danny and Chris had planned everything meticulously, down to the smallest detail. After 12 years they finally decided to tie the knot, accompanied by their closest friends on a sunny November day in London.

civil partnership ceremony

After a private civil partnership ceremony was conducted at Kensington and Chelsea Register Office, the guests went to La Trompette to celebrate while we made the most of the brilliant weather and we took the couple to their favourite Chiswick House Park for some outdoor photos. Danny and Chris hired a traditional white taxi for the day so that we both could be with them in the car. We were very grateful that our couple let us witness and capture such intimate, fleeting moments between them.

Afterwards, the couple made a spectacular entrance at the amazing Pompadour Ballroom in Hotel Cafe Royal. And they were accompanied by their dog, Brandy, which made so much sense to us. She took part in the preps and she was taken to the register office. She was even present at the photo shoot.

A secret to a successful wedding

So, what is the key to success on your wedding day? Is it the venue, the weather, the food? Is it the entertainment or the flowers? Or maybe the photos?

None of the above. It is the people you surround yourself with that make your wedding unforgettable! If you choose the people who truly care, you really don’t have to worry about anything. And an effective wedding planner is crucial if you want to enjoy your wedding day. Marina Ionina, the Weddings & Special Events Manager at the Hotel Cafe Royal in London, did a grand job . Following her advice Danny and Chris opted out of video coverage and they also asked their guests not to take any photos during the ceremony. And it did work its magic!

Danny and Chris, thank you so much for believing in us and for your openness to our ideas. Lots of love for the years to come.
