Royal Lancaster Wedding – Rachel & Dan

Rachel & Dan’s jewish wedding at the Royal Lancaster hotel in London was awesome! We knew it would be though. We photographed Rachel’s brother’s wedding in London a few year ago and loved that day! Such a wonderful family.

Everything took place at the Royal Lancaster. Rachel & Dan got ready in these fabulous rooms way up in the sky – the views were stunning! That’s something we adore at city weddings – being able to look down on the whole city, just wow. It was a little cloudy and rainy – but really that only added extra atmosphere!

The wedding ceremony and reception took place downstairs in the cavernous rooms (there were a lot of guests!) the Royal Lancaster offers. The Chuppa looked amazing, and the reception was fully decked out with flowers and brilliant lighting.

But more importantly, the dancing, our favourite part of a jewish wedding, was brilliant! So much energy and fun. Everyone was up on the dance floor! The men flung the groom up in the air on a table cloth (I think he missed the ceiling, just about). The ladies picked up Rachel for the chair dance. I wish all weddings had these traditions!

It was lovely to work with HD Moments finally – they did a fantastic job of filming everything.

Here are some of our favourite pictures from their day:
