Landmark Hotel Wedding | London

The Landmark Hotel wedding of Sahar and Amin towards the end of 2014 was my first Persian wedding in London. When they asked to see me and discuss their hopes for their wedding photography, I had no idea what to expect, but I’m a wedding storyteller and this is their story. Sahar and Amin wanted a photojournalistic approach for their day and my aim is to be a witness to their emotions and their day. Candid and relaxed and the keys to my approach to documentary wedding photography.

I don’t want to change how the day unfolds and I certainly don’t want to influence proceedings, but I’m documenting a family story, and these shots can be part of that story. It’s all done in about 20 minutes and very quick and calm. They’re not compulsory however; it’s all about what the family wants. Sahar had planned everything meticulously, and that included an Persian Knife Dance. That conjured up some images in my mind for sure! The day started with some preparations at the Landmark Hotel followed by some couples shots prior to the ceremony. The wedding itself took place in a sumptuous, chandelier clad room, with an aisle longer than most churches. Some speeches were conducted mostly in Farsi, but the resulting emotions and tears broke any language or cultural barriers right down. The Persian knife dance turned out to be a charming and fun prelude to the cutting of the cake. A very vibrant party ensued, with much dancing and not a little cigar smoking from the guys. They will be choosing images for their bespoke handmade album in the new year, so in the meantime, here is a selection of images from the day.
