It is always a pleasure to be recommended by existing clients since we all know that the best thing for a wedding photographer is word of mouth recommendation. So I was especially pleased when I got contacted to be the wedding photographer for this Iranian-Lebanese wedding in London following corporate wedding photography at the Dorchester hotel for the Persian New Year celebration (you can see the post here http://neliprahova.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/london-event-photography-at-dorchester.html). I have photographed a number of Persian weddings in London and in Monaco but it was the first time I was doing a wedding photographer for a Lebanese wedding in London.
The wedding was actually more of a celebration for the family in London as the couple have already married abroad. But the bride nevertheless was in a beautiful dress and looked radiant. The groom was equally handsome and it was certainly a treat to be the London wedding photographer for this beautiful couple on their London wedding celebration.
We started with some wedding photography in the family’s London house and then continued to photograph the celebration in the Royal Automobile Club in the heart of Central London. Both Persian weddings and Lebanese weddings are always very beautiful and intricate but as the couple has already married there was no intricate ceremony but only a beautiful event in the Royal Automobile Club which is an outstanding historic wedding venue on Pall Mall.
I’ve photographed weddings in the Lansdowne Club in London where I’m now a recommended photographer and The Royal Automobile Club is a reciprocal club with the Lansdowne Club but it was the first time I had the opportunity to be the wedding photographer in RAC which is indeed a beautiful historic wedding venue - a very elegant and at the same time very traditional wedding venue in London.
From what I have researched on this classic wedding venue the Royal Automobile Club was founded in 1897 by Frederick Richard Simms and its distinguished history mirrors that of motoring itself. Ten years later, in 1907, King Edward VII awarded the Club the Royal title that it still holds to this day, sealing the Club's status as Britain’s oldest and most influential motoring organisation.
The Club's early years were focused on promoting the motor car and its place in society. The Club promoted the first pre-war and post-war Grands Prix at Brooklands in 1926 and Silverstone in 1948.
Today, the Club continues to prosper with a diverse membership drawn from all four corners of the globe, two stunning and unique clubhouses, unsurpassed accommodation, dining, sports and golfing facilities and most importantly an outstanding classic wedding venue facilities in Pall Mall for those who want to get married in style and tradition in the heart of London.
Having enjoyed being the wedding photographer of this Persian wedding in the Royal Automobile Club I certainly hope there will be more opportunities for wedding photography in RAC.
