A Wedding at The Savoy in Black and White | Rachael + Brian

Wedding at The Savoy London-29

When Rachael contacted me to ask if I would photograph her Wedding at The Savoy I was delighted. She told me her wedding to Brian would be an intimate affair and their reasons for holding their wedding at The Savoy were many. They had enjoyed many times together there, they loved the history attached to it, including the Winston Churchill connection and when they had a decision to make there was only one choice, The Savoy.

Their wedding ceremony was held in The Gondoliers room, a beautiful room decorated with maps and painted murals. Following a champagne reception we moved on to The Pinafore room for the wedding breakfast. This room was used by Winston Churchill when he founded The Other Club in 1911, a political dining society. He also dined there with his cabinet during the war years and there are photographs, a painting and a bust of him along with photographs of many past British Prime Ministers along the walls. You know you are someplace special when you walk into this room.

I met Brian in The Coal Hole where he and some of his guests were gathering and where he had “a quick half” to steady his nerves before going next door to The Savoy, he told me he wasn’t nervous, but I caught him checking his watch on more than one occasion. Rachael arrived in The Savoy’s Rolls Royce and made her way to meet Brian and to exchange their vows in front of their family and friends.

Following their wedding Rachael and Brian left for an hotel near Heathrow where they spent the night before heading off on their honeymoon the next day.

I’ve edited this wedding in Black and White as I believe black and white photographs are timeless, just like The Savoy.
