My approach to wedding photography is genuine, candid, and documentary. I like to document genuine moments that happen during your day. Beautiful pictures can be taken on a simple walk, but if you prefer, I can also take formal family photos. I have a relaxed and unhurried approach to help ensure a stress-free wedding.

I work across London and am recommended by leading city wedding venues. Click below my view my portfolio.

Are you looking for Rosewood Hotel Wedding Photographers?

Hello, I’m John Sanders, a wedding photographer who specialises in a relaxed documentary style. I’ve been taking pictures at weddings at the Rosewood Hotel and all over London for more than ten years. I concentrate on capturing natural, unposed moments that capture the wedding day’s story.

John Sanders – Rosewood Hotel Wedding Photographer

I have a lot of experience as a wedding photographer, have won awards for my wedding photography work, and am a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association. My lifelong interest has been in wedding photography. I know only some enjoy having their photo taken. My documentary style is more laid-back, as I want my couples to feel comfortable at all times. I aim to blend in with the other guests at your Rosewood Hotel wedding.

Relax On Your Wedding Day

You cannot have a typical wedding day because every couple is unique. It must be something that both of you, as a couple, can relate to. It can be challenging to select the best venue, dress, decor, and other details, including the photographer! I’m hoping that with how I shoot, you’ll find it simple to pick me as your wedding photographer. My approach and focus are on you, ensuring you’re at ease and able to take in the day. The best way to choose your wedding photographer is to schedule a chat about your ideas and expectations.

The History of Rosewood Hotel

This Grade II building originally housed the Pearl Assurance Company’s corporate offices. The structure consists of four blocks: the central block was completed in 1919; the east block, which includes Scarfes Bar, was built in the late 1920s; the southeast extension was constructed in the 1950s; and the final west block was completed by 1960.

The Marriott group re-opened the building as the Renaissance Chancery Court hotel in 2000 but it changed name to The Chancery Court Hotel until July 2013. The Hong Kong-based Rosewood Hotels & Resorts group then bought the hotel and completely refurbished it to launch the Rosewood London Hotel in 2013.


What do you mean by documentary wedding photography?

Being a documentary wedding photographer, I capture real-life moments in unposed, candid photos. With this approach to photography, I can work covertly, which keeps you at ease all day.

How many photos will we receive?

There will typically be 500 photos sent to you. There will be a combination of colour and black and white which will be delivered to you in a password-protected gallery.

How much does it cost to hire a London wedding photographer?

Wedding photographers in London provide a variety of packages, like all other wedding-related services. On my pricing page, you can view my wedding photography packages.

How long does it take to receive the wedding photos?

I usually return the photographs around six weeks after the wedding. However, depending on the season, this may change.

What happens if you are unwell on the wedding day?

In the event that I become ill on the day of your wedding, I will make an effort to find a replacement photographer. If the worst happens, I have access to a large pool of experienced photographers in London.

How long will you be with us on our wedding day?

I will arrive on location approximately 30 minutes before the beginning of the bridal/groom preparations and will leave when the final dance is over. I’ll discuss this with you in detail during our pre-wedding consultation.
