Home House Birthday Event Photographer / London Event Photography

One of my returning clients has recently commissioned me to do the birthday photography of his wife’s birthday party. It was an important birthday celebration and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the birthday even celebration was to be in the exclusive London private club Home House in the heart of London.
I am working with a wedding planner who organizes a lot of events in Home House but until now I haven’t had the chance to do wedding photography in Home House but I was thrilled to have the chance to do the event photography in Home House for this birthday celebration.
Home House is a perfect wedding and events venue in Central London for those who are looking for something more luxurious and unique. Home House is London's most exclusive private members’ club. Occupying a terrace of Georgian townhouses in elegant Portman Square in the heart of London, the building represents the splendour of 18th Century architecture and the opulence of neo-classical design.
Home House Private Members Club (www. has welcomed and accommodated a wealth of hosts and guests over the centuries since its creation for Elizabeth Countess of Home. In 1773, George III’s architect, James Wyatt, was commissioned by Elizabeth, Countess of Home, to build a sophisticated ‘Pavilion’ designed purely for enjoyment and entertainment at N° 20 Portman Square. The notorious Countess, aptly known as ‘The Queen of Hell’, was originally from Jamaica and was in her late 60’s, twice widowed, childless and rich. In 1775, Wyatt was sacked from the project and his competitor Robert Adam was appointed to complete the interior of the house in the sumptuous Neo-Classical style. Throughout the years Home House was let to tenants including amongst others, the French Ambassador and the Courtauld Institute of Art. In 1996 Home House was meticulously restored to its former glory and opened in its current guise as a private members club in 1998.
With such a history and amazing interior it’s not surprising that Home House hosts some of the finest weddings in Central London and it’s certainly a privilege to be a wedding photographer for a wedding in Home House. But it is equally rewarding to be an event photographer in Home House. The event suited the interior with abundance of champagne and an exquisite decoration of the birthday dinner which was followed by a party celebration until late. Birthday event photography in Home House historic venue is a good start and I can only hope that my next job in this high end wedding venue in London will be a wedding photography job.

Wedding Photographer at the Royal Automobile Club London / Elegant Wedding Photography London

It is always a pleasure to be recommended by existing clients since we all know that the best thing for a wedding photographer is word of mouth recommendation. So I was especially pleased when I got contacted to be the wedding photographer for this Iranian-Lebanese wedding in London following corporate wedding photography at the Dorchester hotel for the Persian New Year celebration (you can see the post here I have photographed a number of Persian weddings in London and in Monaco but it was the first time I was doing a wedding photographer for a Lebanese wedding in London.
The wedding was actually more of a celebration for the family in London as the couple have already married abroad. But the bride nevertheless was in a beautiful dress and looked radiant. The groom was equally handsome and it was certainly a treat to be the London wedding photographer for this beautiful couple on their London wedding celebration.
We started with some wedding photography in the family’s London house and then continued to photograph the celebration in the Royal Automobile Club in the heart of Central London. Both Persian weddings and Lebanese weddings are always very beautiful and intricate but as the couple has already married there was no intricate ceremony but only a beautiful event in the Royal Automobile Club which is an outstanding historic wedding venue on Pall Mall.
I’ve photographed weddings in the Lansdowne Club in London where I’m now a recommended photographer and The Royal Automobile Club is a reciprocal club with the Lansdowne Club but it was the first time I had the opportunity to be the wedding photographer in RAC which is indeed a beautiful historic wedding venue - a very elegant and at the same time very traditional wedding venue in London.
From what I have researched on this classic wedding venue the Royal Automobile Club was founded in 1897 by Frederick Richard Simms and its distinguished history mirrors that of motoring itself. Ten years later, in 1907, King Edward VII awarded the Club the Royal title that it still holds to this day, sealing the Club's status as Britain’s oldest and most influential motoring organisation.
The Club's early years were focused on promoting the motor car and its place in society. The Club promoted the first pre-war and post-war Grands Prix at Brooklands in 1926 and Silverstone in 1948.
Today, the Club continues to prosper with a diverse membership drawn from all four corners of the globe, two stunning and unique clubhouses, unsurpassed accommodation, dining, sports and golfing facilities and most importantly an outstanding classic wedding venue facilities in Pall Mall for those who want to get married in style and tradition in the heart of London.
Having enjoyed being the wedding photographer of this Persian wedding in the Royal Automobile Club I certainly hope there will be more opportunities for wedding photography in RAC.
