I was thrilled when Steph approached me to capture their special day as their Corinthia London wedding photographer. As someone who cherishes photographing weddings in our capital city, this venue had long been on my must-visit list.

Steph and Sam, with a keen appreciation for photography, were referred to me by another photographer. Their vision for natural, documentary-style images perfectly aligned with my own approach to storytelling.

Nestled in the heart of central London, Corinthia London stands as one of the premier luxury hotels in the city. Renowned for its elegance and proximity to iconic attractions, it’s a favorite among celebrities and the elite.

Making the journey from Liverpool, I had the pleasure of meeting with Steph for a pre-wedding planning session the day before. It was a delightful opportunity to indulge in Corinthia Hotel’s renowned afternoon tea—a true indulgence!

From the moment I arrived, I knew Steph and Sam’s luxury Corinthia London wedding would present countless breathtaking photo opportunities, and it certainly lived up to expectations…

Courtroom ceremony and Ballroom reception

Steph and Sam’s wedding photography began with bridal preparations in a beautiful Corinthia London Hotel suite. Steph was the epitome of a relaxed bride, even using her ‘Calm app.’

The couple married in The Corinthia London Courtroom, with some group shots before heading to the Penthouse for pictures and then outside for a quick portrait session.

The wedding reception started a little later in the Corinthia London Ballroom with speeches and a party that was photographed beautifully against a colourful ballroom backdrop.

Steph and Sam are a cool and sophisticated London couple who were enthusiastic about their Corinthia London wedding photography and trusted me to capture their day as it unfolded.

Here is their romantic Corinthia London wedding photography story…

Love at Corinthia London. Steph and Sam’s story

Hi, we are Stephanie and Sam and this is our Corinthia London Hotel wedding photography story. 

Sam is originally from Tottenham, but he moved to Bath when he was a child. He works at PMI as the Global Head of Citizen Developer… yep, I have no idea what that is either!

I’m from London and work in marketing and events.

We met in 2015 at the ExCel Centre. I was working the event and Sam was a spectator. I asked for his business card as a ruse to obtain his phone number. And the rest is history!

The Shard Proposal in London

Sam’s friend in marketing emailed me and asked if Sam and I would be interested in participating in a Valentine’s Day photoshoot; at The Shard, London in December.

We arrived at the Shard in London, and the guy behind the desk greeted us and showed us to our suite, saying the photographer would be there any minute…

As you do, I went to the bathroom to see what freebies the Shangri-la hotel had to offer…

When I came out, there were rose petals all over the floor, and Sam proposed as the sun was setting in the distance over the London skyline.

We then went to the Shangri-la for dinner at Ting restaurant followed by drinks at Bar 31, the Sky Lounge.

We ended the romantic night taking in the views from across London from the 52nd floor of Gong. It was perfect.

Sam, being Sam, planned an entire weekend of treats and surprises for me, it was incredible! I have no idea how he did it.

Corinthia London Wedding Theme

Our Corinthia London wedding theme was simple, classy and elegant with lots of flowers. It was very romantic. We chose the Corinthia Hotel London because we wanted a London venue with easy access, and we loved the attention to detail and, strangely, the smell of the hotel! It has a wonderful aroma.

We had to cut down our numbers even in August as we didn’t want to risk it. 50 in the day and another 30-40 in the evening. We had four bridesmaids and one best man.

Wedding Dress

I had two stunning gowns. A breathtaking LiRi Nicola gown for the day (from Confetti and Lace) and a sophisticated Morilee Rachel dress for the evening from Bromley Brides – they were incredible!

Sam had seen my Morilee Rachel dress at our first ceremony and he had no idea that I’d got a second dress. I’d kept it a secret.

But, the way Wes, our photographer captured Sam’s expression as I entered the Corinthia Courtroom wearing my LiRi Nicola gown, is priceless. I will never forget the look on his face.

My wedding gown was stunning. The dramatic train, the straight cut along the top, and the way the fabric folded over onto itself were all very appealing to me.

Also, I adored the back and neckline of my Morilee Rachel dress – the evening gown!

Sam – Hugo Boss head to toe!

Bridal Party

I ordered six dresses, and my bridesmaids all came over to try them on. Subsequently, I asked them to go into different rooms and to come down in the dress they felt most comfortable in…

They all appeared in the same dress, so it was a simple decision!

I loved their outfits as much as my own. I found their dresses before mine, so I knew which necklines to avoid because I didn’t want to match.

Standout Moments

A stand-out moment from our Corinthia Hotel London wedding… Oh, that’s a tough one. Maybe when we walked into the Ballroom at Corinthia London for the first time, everyone was up with their napkins in the air to welcome us. It’s a moment I won’t forget.

It’s a hard choice. Either the ones in the Corinthia London Penthouse or on the stairs or the outside photos at night with the iconic Corinthia London Hotel doorway! We love them all.
