Lansdowne London wedding – Sivanie & George

Lansdowne Club

Reportage wedding photography at the Lansdowne Club in London

A classy London wedding at the Lansdowne Club in London’s Mayfair, for Sivanie and George. A Sunday wedding. A wedding in which the words Porsche, Leica and U-Boat cropped up…

Principally designed by the famous architect Robert Adam, the Lansdowne club is in an impressive building. It is but a shadow of its former self. Whole chunks disappeared over time. The grounds now house massive office blocks. But its history still resonates amongst its grandeur. A fusion of the 18th century and art deco interior design. It’s where the independence of the United States was finally conceded. Here, was drawn up, in what is now a bar, the Treaty of Paris. Maybe Benjamin Franklin had a glass or two in that very room?

Sivanie was getting ready around the corner, with family and friends, at the Connaught hotel. George was at the Lansdowne, double-checking that the details were right. The ceremony was in the ‘Adam Room’ – the drawing-room. No silly posed up ‘signing the register’ from the Westminster registrars . “we don’t do that!” – just the natural coverage. (London registrars put many, in the provinces, to shame. Some are still stuck in the 1950s, it seems)

It was then a confetti bombardment (George got a face full!) on the steps outside before some quick portraits in Berkeley Square, then onto drinks in the courtyard at the Lansdowne Club.

I want to own a U-Boat!

Not a sentence you expect to hear at a wedding but the top prize for the most original line I’ve heard at any wedding goes to George’s dad. Not content with collecting Leicas, a bigger piece of German engineering is imagined.

The drinks melted into the meal in the large ballroom. Speeches…a Haynes manual…then the dancing.

Here are a few images from Sivanie and George’s day at the Lansdowne Club…
