Dorchester wedding photography – Juste and Mike
Yay! Weddings are back! And we had the best time photographing and filming Juste and Mike’s amazing wedding at The Dorchester Hotel in London. We love love, love shooting wedding photography at The Dorchester. This iconic London hotel was the perfect wedding venue for Juste and Mike’s stylish wedding. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. We’ll get back to all the reasons why we love shooting wedding films and wedding photography at The Dorchester later. Let’s start at the beginning of Juste and Mike’s Day.
Juste and Mike were so laid back and easy to work with. They’d always wanted a large wedding but the pandemic delayed their plans until this year when they realised that Juste’s family were one way and another going to be in London in May. So Juste and Mike decided to take the opportunity to get married (even though they were expecting their second child at the time). They managed to organise their London wedding in just six weeks!
On the day we got there early to get some images of these two as they made their preparations. They both looked amazing. Juste wore an utterly stunning dress by designer Elbeth Gillis, that totally suited her and Mike wore a black tux and bow tie. The pair of them going for a look of old-fashioned vintage glamour that worked so perfectly with the timeless elegance of The Dorchester.
Creative Dorchester Wedding Photography
The wedding ceremony was held at the Fitzrovia Chapel. This Grade II listed chapel is one of London’s hidden gems. Architecturally and historically rich, its interiors are just stunning. And because it has a capacity for 50 people was the perfect ceremony space for Juste and Mike’s 30 guests (as per Covid-19 regulations). After a gorgeous ceremony, there was a chance for some photographs before everybody excitedly headed to The Dorchester Hotel for the reception. Juste and Mike travelling in the most beautiful vintage Rolls Royce.
Juste and Mike booked The Dorchester’s elegant Orchid Room for their wedding reception. The Orchid Room at The Dorchester has beautiful pale Wedgewood blue interiors, high chandeliered ceilings and gentle lighting. Elegant and calm, it’s the perfect space for a stylish wedding reception. The space is so beautiful that it requires little adornment so the neutral and white tones in the flowers and decoration were perfect. With fewer guests, Juste and Mike were able to splash out on silver service and everybody enjoyed a sumptuous wedding breakfast.
Storytelling London wedding photography at the Dorchester Hotel
Our favourite part of the day was when we got some gorgeous images of Juste and Mike outside The Dorchester. These black and white images look so amazing. Like something out of a high-end fashion shoot. (Juste’s modelling background really shone through) Here take a look!
We had the best time filming and photographing Juste and Mike’s gorgeous wedding at The Dorchester London. Congratulations you two on getting married and creating such an amazing wedding day. Thanks for having us there. We loved it!
We’ll leave the last words to Juste and Mike. Here’s what they had to say about us.
“I would definitely recommend you guys. It was so easy to work with you (and I have worked with a LOT of photographers). You made us feel very comfortable at the prewedding shoot, so comfortable that we even got in a bath in front of you! And at the wedding, you were everywhere capturing everything but on a stealth mode as well! Very friendly to our guests even when you wanted to get some special shots. I loved your work from your website already and when I saw a little sneaky preview, I knew that we definitely made the right decision and will have amazing photos and videos to show our friends and family and generations to come!”
