Christmas is such a magical time of year, especially so in the hospitality sector, where restaurants, bars and hotels all throw open their doors to welcome their guests for the season ahead with extra magic sparkle added.

For those hotels who offer beautiful afternoon teas, such as The Wellesley Knightsbridge, it’s a good idea to do a Christmas themed tea as many people will be visiting the city or having visitors from out of town and an afternoon tea is a perfect treat.

For this photography shoot, the brief was to photography the Christmas themed tea, which of course will be used to promote it, as well as capture a few of the beautiful hotel decorations, for use on social media and any Christmas promotions.

The main purpose for hiring me for the hotel photography was to capture the tea, but whilst on site, it made good sense for The Wellesley Knightsbridge, to take full advantages of my hospitality photography services and capture these extra shots as well.
