Last Autumn I had the pleasure of capturing Erika & Nicholas’ elegant wedding at The Connaught Hotel in Mayfair, followed by an epic party in the evening at Ice Tank in Covent Garden. Nicholas is British and Erika is Colombian so the combination of these two London venues gave them the opportunity to celebrate both their cultures in style! I loved being their Connaught Hotel Wedding Photographer.
Connaught Hotel Wedding Photographer
Erika looked absolutely stunning in her Pronovias wedding gown and Jimmy Choo heels and Nicholas very handsome in his Dolce & Gabbana suit. The Connaught was the perfect backdrop to their very elegant wedding ceremony & intimate lunch for close family and friends. Later that evening, Erika & Nicholas joined their guests for the black tie wedding festivities at Ice Tank a short drive from the hotel. In true Colombian style, the Hora Loca kicked off shortly after the first dance when the dancers handed out crazy hour props and the Colombian aguardiente (sugar cane derived, alcohol fire water) started flowing! I can honestly say that this was by far the most fun & crazy party I have ever shot at a wedding and I had an absolute blast watching them party the night away.
Erika & Nicholas, thanks again for inviting me to capture your fantastic wedding day. I wish you all the love & happiness in the world!
A little note from Erika: “I have no words to express how happy I am to have chosen you as our photographer – the pictures are ABSOLUTELY stunning!!! Thank you again – everybody is commenting on how beautiful the photographs are and how good you are!”
Here are some of my favourites from the day. Enjoy
