London Shenley Club wedding photography – Priscilla & Dan’s wedding reception.

Following on from their church wedding ceremony in St Albans (which you can see here), Priscilla & Dan had their reception at the London Shenley Club.

Arriving in their wonderfully classy Rolls Royce, I just had to get a few photos of them with it, before they went to catch up with their guests.

The summer marquee looked lovely, decorated by Dress It Yourself in keeping with the colour theme and that of a summer wedding.

As for the cake, it really was truly amazing – great work Asian Wedding Cakes!!

Wedding days often don’t go exactly as planned.  Following Priscilla’s late arrival at the church (why not, it’s her day!) we had less time than expected between the ceremony and the wedding breakfast.  So, a little shuffling around was called for.  No problem – we skipped the shots of Priscilla & Dan (don’t worry, just postponed – they come later!) and went straight to the family group shots.

Of course, we made sure we still had time for that all-important confetti tunnel.

Then it was in to the marquee…

…and time for the speeches.  They were all great, but special mention to the 3 best men who got the perfect balance between suitable embarrassment of the groom whilst still demonstrating their close friendship or family bond between them.  And most importantly, providing me with great photo opportunities!

After the wedding breakfast, everyone took the opportunity afforded by the long summer evenings to get back outside while the room was prepared for the evening celebrations.

While the guests were happily enjoying themselves, I took Priscilla & Dan away for a short time to get some shots of just the two of them.

When they saw the fun we were having, Dan’s three best men wanted to get in on the act as well!

Before we knew it it was time to get back inside, and for Priscilla and Dan to face the challenge of how to cut that amazing cake!  After some deliberating, they decided how and where to cut, and then moved next door to the dancefloor for the ceremonial ‘first dance’ to kick-off the evening celebrations.
