Froyle Park Wedding

 

 

 

Hindu Wedding Photography

Back in October 2015, I photographed the gorgeous wedding days (Yes, two! Hindu wedding at home and a civil ceremony at Northbrook Park wedding venue) of the fabulous Sumeet and Zohra. When I arrived on the first day at Sumeet’s parents’ house for the Hindu ceremony, I immediately fell in love with his awesome family, who were SO welcoming and excited and happy. So when Sumeet contacted me to let me know that his brother Sudheer was getting married, and would I photograph the wedding, the only possible answer was, “HELL YES!” It was all a bit last minute, as it was all dependant on Sudheer’s fiancee, Carli-Lyn, getting a visa in order to come over from America and get married! So on a ridiculously (and surprisingly) lovely Monday in March, we all met up at Froyle Park wedding venue in Hampshire for a day I knew would be excellent fun (especially having already met Sudheer, who is basically the family clown, and his Mum Sujata, who has pretty much the best laugh I’ve ever seen)! I was so excited to see the family again, and they were just as welcoming and happy to see me (I hope :P).

Sudheer and Carli had decided to do both their civil ceremony and Hindu ceremony on the same day, so we started off with the civil ceremony, after which everyone mingled about outside in the fab weather (this family really lucks out with great weather for their winter-ish weddings!) while the couple and some of the guests changed into epic Indian outfits. Then followed the epic dancing that I’d loved so much at Sumeet and Zohra’s wedding, and finally the Hindu ceremony, which I freaking love with all its colours and traditions and non-serious bits. Plus the priest who married Sudheer and Carli had also married Sumeet and Zohra two years before, as well as a number of other couples in the room (he had them all stand up), which made it even more special. His father had even married Sudheer’s parents!

After the ceremony we did some lovely golden light portraits (swoon!) and then it was time for an evening of hilarious speeches, amazing Indian food, and the most EPIC dancing! These guys know how to have fun! I’m only sorry there are only two Vermani brothers, so I can’t photograph another wedding with this family. But still, as Sudheer’s Mum said, there are always cousins and nieces and nephews…. 🙂

Thanks to my ever-wonderful second shooter, Heline Bekker.

Essex Wedding Photography – Three Rivers Hindu Weddings {Rupal & Dipen}

Hindu Weddings at Three Rivers Golf Club

A few months ago I photographed Rupal and Dipen’s Hindu Engagement Ceremony in North London (which is basically like a mini wedding ceremony with fewer guests :-D), so I was really looking forward to their actual Hindu weddings ceremony and then the legal ceremony and party the following week! Dipen & Rupal are a gorgeous couple who are very much in love, and who love to laugh and have fun with each other, and this really shone through on all three of the days I spent with them. And I absolutely loved their priest who conducted the ceremony, who explained what was going on in English so that everyone could understand, and made a lot of jokes so everyone had a good time.

All the Hindu weddings I’ve shot differ slightly from each other, with certain traditions incorporated in some and not others. This time the new one to me was Rupal’s sisters and brothers trying to steal Dipen’s shoes and hold them to ransom just as he arrived at the ceremony, while all of his boys tried to prevent this, resulting in an epic scrum with me trapped in the middle! Scary but fun. 🙂

The day started with a breakfast for everyone, followed by the welcoming of the families, and then the ceremony. After that there was more food (which was delicious, even to this girl who doesn’t like things too hot and spicy!), and then some super fun couple photos, which I loved because Dipen and Rupal (but especially Dipen) love hamming it up for the camera!

And finally, it was time for the couple to say goodbye to everyone in the Vidaai Ceremony, which got somewhat emotional – even for me – and for Rupal’s girls to prevent the wedding car from leaving until they were compensated accordingly :-).

So much fun! Thank you to Rupal and Dipen and all your families and friends for making us feel so welcome. And thank you to my second shooter Liz for getting fabulous shots and taking all the craziness in your stride!
