I'm being commissioned more and more to shoot smaller weddings in venues with a very intimate feel. It might be a private dining rooms in a luxury boutique hotel or a lovely residence with a family party feel. Yet in every case, the events are very specific in their design and attention to detail is of paramount importance.
One such recent shoot was at The Connaught hotel in the heart of London's Mayfair. This stunning venue dates back to 1815 (when it was called The Coburg) and, in its various incarnations, has always been frequented by the great and good.
Katy and Jonathan had chosen to hold their small wedding ceremony close by - at The Mayfair Library - before they and their party walked through the gardens behind Farm St Church and into Mount Street.
After a relaxed drinks reception the 30 or so guests were treated to a sumptuous meal in The Carlos Room, and it's here we photographically pick up the day, because the detail was absolutely stunning...
Entirely lit by candles, Katy's vision was brought to life by suppliers operating at the very top of their game. I recall walking into the room and being struck by the soft orange hue. The light whispered pure luxury while still being inviting and comfortable - the perfect combination which allowed this tight-knit group of family and friends to enjoy themselves to the full.
So, in the hope the photography reflects the scene, here is a little corner of The Connaught in all its romantic glory.
Below, as usual, are only a few from the set. Click any thumbnail to enlarge...

If you travel in town a lot you'll find this fascinating. And possibly it'll explain a few late arrivals.
Oliver O’Brien, a researcher at UCL, took data published by Transport for London (TfL) and created a remarkable analysis of the city's over-subscribed underground railways. TfL recorded the exact number of people exiting and entering tube stations every 15 minutes to build a map of the daily journeys of the city’s millions of commuters.
To my mind this is where the web excels, an amazing piece of work. I originally saw this on Wired magazine's terrific website.
I guess the forthcoming US general election is so scary and unpalatable it's essential reading/viewing. But this graphic from a recent NYT piece just had to find its way on to the site.
What a great illustration. Lord protect us all from the guy, the situation is total madness.
