London wedding photos | Hotel Russell | Lauren and Peter

If there was an award for the most number of kissses on a wedding day, Lauren & Peter would probably win it. They were constantly together, looking into each other’s eyes and you could see they were very close to their families and friends too.
Both wanted photographs that reflected their central London wedding venue and as I was waiting for Lauren, her father and bridesmaids to arrive in a black cab, a BT truck parked outside Camden Town Hall received a parking ticket – not many things more London than that!

In Russell Square, we chose a couple of places for their London links.

Then in the park itself, we had time for a full-length portrait session. Lauren & Peter had also brought along a parasol for some promenading. The silhouette they made reminded me of Georges Seurat’s Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte from the late 1880s.

We finished with some portraits of them near the fountain before family group photographs under one of the large trees.

At the end of our session, Lauren and Peter led their guests into the Hotel Russell for drinks and dinner.
