Award Ceremony Photography in London
This was my second shoot for the organisation which encapsulates Visit Britain and Visit England
. This shoot was an afternoon awards ceremony which was hosted at the Waldorf Hilton in Covent Garden.
The Waldorf Hilton stands as one of London’s most iconic hotels. Perfectly positioned, you’ll find it right in the heart of the Capital’s glitzy district of theatres and a short walk from the Royal Opera House and Covent Garden Piazza.
The event space was glamorous and bright. I expected it to be glamorous but the brightness surprised me
which made it much easier and enjoyable to work in. The host for the event was Sue Perkins who was hilarious and had done her research as she made so many relevant observations and jokes.
The event consisted of drinks, formal shots of nominees with their certificates in front of a branded back drop, drinks, a canapés reception, three course meal and awards ceremony (phew!).
This was actually one of the very rare occasions that I had to take a second photographer with me as we had to take a lot of formal shots during the drinks reception and needed to set up two sets of lighting to cope… see what you think!
