St Pancras Renaissance Hotel Wedding Photographer | Domini + Tom

  • St Pancras Renaissance Hotel Wedding Photographer

Domini and Tom booked me to be their St Pancras Renaissance Hotel Wedding Photographer after finding me through their friends Lottie and Dave whose wedding I shot a few years back. We got on well immediately and they already had a good understanding of my reportage approach to wedding photography. The St Pancras Renaissance is an iconic London hotel dating back to 1873 when it opened to serve the newly thriving Midland Railway. With it’s Gothic architecture and amazing history the hotel really is unique and perfect for a winter London wedding.

The girls got ready in one of the hotel’s large beautifully lit suites, perfect for bridal prep. Outside we spotted hundreds of people dressed as Santa (the wedding was just before Christmas). A bit of googling told us that it was the annual Santacon, a parade/pub crawl where everyone has to dress as Santa. Looked like fun! Tom got ready at home with their young daughter and arrived for a few pre-ceremony drinks with his friends. Tom did have to come up to the suite at one point to sort out an issue with his shirt which resulted in Domini having to hide behind a wardrobe so that she wasn’t seen! There was a couple of near misses but I think she managed to stay hidden.

Domini looked absolutely stunning in her very stylish dress and did all of her bridesmaids. Her and Tom had decided they would walk down the aisle together and were to  meet at the bottom of the grand staircase just outside the ceremony room. Unfortunately their daughter had now woken from her nap in a pretty bad mood which as the parents amongst you will know can be pretty common. Multiple attempts to settle her with her child minder were unsuccessful and the couple took the decision that she would just have to come with them. They were to walk down the aisle together and get married as a family of three.

Now weddings are always full of emotion. I’m far from unaffected by this but I am used to staying professional and documenting that emotion. However, there are occasions when I am affected and might have had a tear or two in my eye during the ceremony. The way Domini and Tom dealt with their upset daughter, comforting and entertaining her whilst also making their wedding vows was truly heart warming. It made for a unique ceremony.

After the ceremony the celebrations kicked in with lively reception drinks, hilarious and heart felt speeches and of course the dancing. Fuelled by the odd Jagerbomb here and there Domini, Tom and their guests partied hard. The perfect end to a perfect day.

A massive thank you to Domini and Tom for welcoming me into their day. Here are a few of my favourite photos from the wedding.
