The Marylebone Room wedding of Tas and Ravi in Mayfair Library was on one of January’s cold but stunningly beautiful winter days, allowing us lovely portraits in the adjacent Mount Street Gardens.
Tas and Ravi’s wedding ceremony was with their closest family and friends. Tas wore a beautiful red sari and carried a bouquet of red roses and gypsophila or baby’s breath and Ravi had a red rose buttonhole on his blue wedding suit.
Ravi and Tas walked into Mayfair Library’s Marylebone Room together to meet their family and friends. Ravi’s mother held a box with their two wedding rings for safekeeping, bringing it forward at just the right moment in the ceremony.
See – married! Tas and Ravi show off their shiny new wedding rings and their witnesses sign the register while other family members congratulate them on their marriage.

Tas + Ravi walk several blocks to Atul Kocchar’s Michelin starred restaurant Benares for their wedding breakfast. They had a portrait next to the water feature they love before I left them to celebrate with their guests.
Rice throwing and readings in Greek reflected the groom’s family heritage at the Cambridge Register Office wedding of H and C.
Their story starts with a waiting room full of friends and both their family, through their English and Greek readings, with rice throwing and onto their reception venue with home-made bunting and table names of Beatles songs.
I’ll let their wedding photographs tell the story of their day.
The Greenwich civil wedding of Anna and James with their closest friends and family had a buzz about it that reflected their easy smiles and happiness. Anna, originally from Sweden, wore a classic cream dress and jacket with bouquet from Manchesters Flowers. James wore a cream buttonhole in his cream linen suit, also from Manchesters Flowers.
Their wedding took place at Woolwich Town Hall, the base for the registrars for the Royal Borough of Greenwich, that is Greenwich Register Office. We waited in the magnificent Victoria Hall, with its turn of the century architecture including high domed ceiling and beautiful paintwork.
Anna carried a bouquet of white roses and greenery tied with a white ribbon and James wore a white rose buttonhole.
We did some portraits on Victoria Hall’s stunning stairs before Anna and James’ civil wedding ceremony.
There was a lot of laughing and joking from the guests during the Greenwich civil wedding, putting Anna and James at ease.
Greenwich registrars, like other London registrars, use archive-quality indelible ink in the registers. The best man keeps Anna and James’s rings safe on his own fingers.
Anna and James exchange vows with her father looking on from the front row.
And finally they are announced man and wife – celebrating with a traditional kiss, to the delight of their family and friends.
