August Venue of the Month: Institute of Contemporary Arts

The Institute of Contemporary Arts is an iconic venue located on The Mall, just a short walk from Buckingham Palace and Downing Street. It is a creative and culturally significant building with two Regency rooms and a large Theatre space.  While enjoying breath-taking views from three balconies overlooking St. James’s Park, Big Ben and London Eye, it is a spectacular location to sip champagne and party in style. The venue recently has been shortlisted for the London Venue Awards in Best Party Venue and Best Private Dining categories.

Wedding Photographer Spotlight: YB PHOTOGRAPHIC

Tell us about your photography journey and why/how you became a wedding photographer?

My path to professional photography took me from fashion, where I developed an eye for style, composition and light, via investment banking, which taught me to stay calm in the most excitable of situations, to photographing my first wedding 15 years ago. I was hooked from the first wedding I photographed.

It’s a huge privilege to share such a special and intimate time with my clients, and to create photographs that have such meaning in their lives. It’s unbelievably satisfying and brings me joy every single time.

Elegant, sophisticated and located in the Heart of Mayfair, Dartmouth House is a quintessential London venue. Not only do the exquisite crystal chandeliers, Louis XIV walnut panelling and marble staircase offer a majestic feel to the interior of the house, you can transport yourself to the heart of a French Chateau in our private Courtyard surrounded by stunning architecture, wrought iron furniture and a delightful water fountain.

Wedding Photographer Spotlight: Ernie Savarese

Tell us about your photography journey and why/how you became a wedding photographer?

For me it all started in August 2008 to be precise.  This was the year my daughter was born. My whole life changed in more ways than one.

At that time, I was working in IT and although I was doing well – I knew something was missing in my career – I was not as happy! I wanted to do something more rewarding and exciting, but I did not know what I wanted to do. In my previous career I used to be a graphic designer so I craved to do something that would excite me creatively.

Wedding Photographer Spotlight: Emma Duggan Photography

Tell us about your photography journey and why/how you became a wedding photographer?

I went back to college to study photography in 2003 and I started my business in 2005 after 12 years of being a (very bored) insurance broker. I had great success as a family photographer, winning awards for my bold black & white children’s portraits in particular. In 2012 I was awarded a Fellowship of the British Institute of Professional Photography - their highest honour.
