Goring Hotel Wedding Photographer
As a Goring Hotel wedding photographer it is a particular pleasure to know the pedigree and history of the place you are working in. Close to Buckingham Palace it has been run by the Goring family for over a hundred years and has frequently played host to Royalty, prime ministers, stars and the discerning, most recently Kate Middleton the night before her wedding to William. Well the Royalty in attendance for us this special occasion was Sally and Paul, a lovely couple, but no relation to the Windsors!
Many newlyweds who wish to add a touch of London sparkle and history choose the Goring for their reception venue. Some however also elect to have their ceremony itself in the intimate but lovely interior of the hotel, and this was certainly the case for Sally and Paul.
Sally stayed the night herself in preparation at the hotel while Paul arrived on the day. First task for David and Joanna (that’s us by the way….) was to see how Sally was getting on in her room with twin sister and chief bridesmaid Lucy. After a series of “prep” shots to start telling the story of the big day, we shot some wonderfully atmospheric images in the light filled corridor outside her room. After a while David went looking for Paul and best man Richard for the “boys” pics.
And so it went on for the day, a division of labour between ourselves. Whether it is being in two different places at once, covering the same spaces from different angles and view points (i.e the ceremony) or just ourselves as a couple photographing a couple, with all the understanding that brings, two is most certainly greater than one….
UPDATE: After reading this blog post Paul and Sally sent us the following email:
We’ve just sat down and watched the DVD’s – all we can say is WOW!
You have captured every possible moment of our special day and given us permanent reminders of so many fantastic memories.
So a very big “thank you” from us both. Also many thanks for creating the pics with Lucy.
With best regards,
Paul & Sally
