Kathryn and John – The Ivy, Wedding photography London
Kathryn and John’s wedding photography London was held at Old Marylebone Town Hall.
The reception was held at The Ivy, London. The Ivy is situated in the heart of London’s West End, close to Leicester Square, Shaftesbury Avenue and the vibrant quarters of Covent Garden and Soho
The Bride and Groom looked stunning. Wedding photography at The Ivy London, provides the most fantastic backdrop.
“Neither my husband nor I are particularly comfortable in front of a camera, and Graham was the only photographer we could have imagined spending our day with. Two things stand out for us in particular – Graham’s personal style and approach with us and our day, and the quality of his photos and the narrative they tell.
Firstly, Graham’s warmth and professionalism put us at ease straight away, and his style with both us and our guests was in perfect keeping with our day – nobody felt as if there was an outsider awkwardly organising us or telling us what to do. He was fantastic with everybody, particularly the kids (all under 7) with whom he engaged and interacted at a personal level in order to get them involved in the photos. He was integral to our wedding yet maintained a low profile, and several of our guests commented on both his enthusiasm and that they enjoyed having photos with him.
Secondly, we organised our wedding quite quickly, and didn’t have the time to properly brief a photographer or think through/give a clear vision of what we wanted (despite Graham offering to have this conversation several times – our fault not his!). But the photos we got back from Graham were exactly what we wanted, without having known it in advance. He not only took great photos of us and our families, but made sure he had captured all of our guests – something that was important to us. He spotted photo opportunities that we weren’t even aware of, and the photos captured both personalities and feelings from throughout the day.
In short, we would highly recommend Graham – he’s a highly skilled, creative photographer who delivers what you want, when you want, with warmth and style.
A huge thank you form us both.”
