A wedding atop Europe’s tallest Building The Shard

Wedding stories are best views in an awesome Wedding Story Book.  So the opportunity arise to photograph a wedding atop Europe’s tallest building, The Shard.  So I jumped at the chance and knew exactly how i would present the story.

It was a winter wedding, the crisp December air was biting at my feet, but as i stepped into the lobby ready to be escorted to top I had defrosted. Shaking off the winter chill, the lift flew me up what seemed like 100 floors in a matter of seconds. At times it felt faster that the lifts at the Empire State building.

As you step out of the lift onto the open plan floor,  London is literally at your feet, with almost a 360 view of the capital.  The hotel was like a oasis of calm in the bustle that is London.  The wedding had a great vibe from the start, with all fun in the brides dressing room, to the sincerity in the grooms room.

The wedding was small and intimate 40 of their nearest and dearest to  wittiness the ceremony presided over by the Brides maid of honour who was a registered celebrant.  This is how we told the final story in a bespoke luxury wedding story book.

At times emotions did run high, the odd hug here and there and the occasional tear.
