The sun has been shining all week on this year’s graduates who have been celebrating the success of their hard work at the 2014 award ceremonies.

The ceremonies have been taking place at the Royal Festival Hall on the Southbank, with the ‘Festival of Love’ forming a colourful backdrop to the momentous occasion. Pink origami birds hanging from the ceiling matched the graduates’ gowns perfectly, while moving speeches from this year’s honorees, who included CEO of luxury and fashion brand LVMH Bernard Arnault, writer and editor of Harper’s Bazaar Justine Picardie, and photographer Nick Knight OBE, added gravitas to the occasion.

This morning’s honorees, Tom Hulme and Alice Rawsthorne, praised the great importance of creativity in their speeches to graduates from London College of Communication, while this afternoon the closing ceremony will see Rob Dickins addressing the class of 2014.
