I've always loved London for its diversity.
Whatever you're looking for, London seems to have it somewhere, and this holds true for wedding venues - London has iconic hotels with grand ballrooms, beautiful churches and registry offices and stunning, exclusive-use venues throughout the city. One such exclusive-use venue, bursting with character, is 41 Portland Place. This Grade II listed Georgian Townhouse is just minutes from Old Marylebone Town Hall, Regents Park and Oxford Circus. Inside it's filled with beautiful architectural features and it's sheltered private terrace is a beautiful spot for your ceremony. It's charm makes for a beautiful place to celebrate your love story.
Meera made her entrance down their main staircase in a bespoke gown designed by Lisa Lyons. Ben, dressed in a three piece suit was there waiting to meet her. Whether you choose a first look before your ceremony or decide to let the anticipation build until the ceremony itself, that moment is so special and I love to capture it.
Ben and Meera's ceremony was set up under a white floral arch on the terrace, which was complemented by lilac floral displays along the aisle to match Meera's bouquet.
I hope this styled shoot provides some inspiration and you enjoy looking through the images.
The wedding breakfast was set up at the heart of 41 Portland Place, in a room bathed in beautiful soft light from the floor-to-ceiling windows. The ornate fireplace was decorated with a stunning floral display, and Ben and Meera had a four-tier, hand-painted wedding cake from the Brentwood Bakesmith.
The modern table-styling was in perfect juxtaposition to the oil paintings hanging on the walls of this historic venue.
Lisa Lyons also designed a simple jumpsuit for Meera to wear whilst exploring the surrounding streets. Her jumpsuit was the perfect wedding afternoon outfit, giving freedom to explore. Regent’s Crescent and Park Square made beautiful spots for some images of Ben and Meera, each of which was less than 5 minutes from the venue! Regent's Park is also nearby, while Primrose Hill or Hyde Park are only a short taxi ride away.
