Cresti & Youssef’s wedding at Sofitel London was incredible! Such a lovely venue at a great location! St James park was just round the corner, perfect for some couple portraits.

The day started with the gorgeous Cresti getting ready with her bridesmaids & mum. The rooms at Sofitel are a photographers dream; so much natural light! The groom Youssef was also getting ready at a different room in Sofitel with his best man. This was easy for me to capture both the groom & bride getting ready.

After they were done, they wanted to do ‘the first look’. This is something not too many Brits do on their wedding day, but from a photographers point of view, it’s definitely a positive. We did all the couple portraits and some group shots with their bridal party before the ceremony.

The church ceremony took place at St Mark’s Coptic Orthodox Church, and straight after, it was back to Sofitel for their evening reception.

The night went on with fantastic speeches and some great dance moves!

Here is a slideshow from their wedding as well as some images. Thanks to Cresti & Youssef for choosing me as their wedding photographer <3
