The inaugural wedding at Raffles - Old War Office
Kaye and Kyri's Wedding marks a historic milestone with the first-ever wedding hosted at the prestigious Raffles London within the Old War Office.
Infusing their celebration with Cypriot traditions, the couple meticulously crafted a haute-wedding, seamlessly combining refined elegance with elements from Cyprus’s rich historical fabric.
For me, the honor is twofold: capturing the moments of K&K and being the inaugural photographer for a venue that holds a completely distinct historical narrative.

Home to Legends
Raffles London is located in The OWO, formerly known as the Old War Office building. This historic site, once the residence of iconic figures like Sir Winston Churchill and Lord Haldane, also welcomed frequent visits from Ian Fleming, the mastermind behind James Bond. The building itself has played a starring role in the 007 movies, serving as the backdrop for numerous scenes. With its association with espionage and intelligence, The OWO housed operations for MI5 and MI6 during the 20th century. Situated at the heart of Whitehall, the meticulously restored building is now the exclusive location for Raffles London at The OWO.
