When Tracy first approached me about photographing her wedding at the The Shard’s Shangri-La hotel I was absolutely thrilled!  I had photographed my first wedding there (Sharoni & Ro) just several months before and had been blown away by this stunning new London landmark.  Tracy & Stewart had first met at the Shangri-La hotel in Hong Kong.  This hotel is famous for its sweeping panoramas of Hong Kong and they had also worked in one of New York’s tallest buildings -somehow always finding themselves in a skyscraper of a beautiful city!  When they first visited the Shard and the Shangri-La hotel they just knew this new venue was ‘meant to be’.   Everything came together just perfectly for their wedding day …

They chose stunning stationery that you would want to keep forever(!) with some highlights of their journeys together featured…

The atmosphere getting ready was one of pure excitement(!).. Tracy & Stewart’s flower girls were their two lovely daughters who had been looking forward to this day for the longest time.. )

All of the stunning flowers throughout the day were the creation of Raspberry Moon

I love the chandeliers that decorate the Shangri-La at the Shard, a perfect backdrop for wedding pictures

They had chosen a ‘cheese wedding cake’ with some cupcakes for those with more of a sweet tooth
