Zena and James are getting married next year and decided to have a religious blessing and their engagement party at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park in London. We got incredibly lucky with some beautiful late Autumn weather when I took the two of them out for a small portrait session. It’s always such an honour to get a glimpse into different cultures and customs and I really enjoyed the religious blessing. Followed by a relaxed drinks reception, very emotional speeches, an incredible dinner and dancing in the ballroom the Mandarin Oriental never looked better.
I felt very welcomed by both families and seeing how much joy there was for Zena and James on this day I’m sure the wedding will be just wonderful.
