Small Intimate wedding at the Old Marylebone Town Hall London

As the times are changing and evolving, there has been increased in Many couples booking small weddings until summer next year and have another reception next year in 2021. I have so many couples who have changed their plans this year.

This does not have to stop you and your family from marking your wedding in 2020. This Small Intimate wedding at the Old Marylebone Town Hall London proved we can still celebrate love in a smaller scale and then next year we can have a big celebration.

 

Birhan opted for Old Marylebone town hall with her intimate groups of people who attended the ceremony. Iowas in the awe of how beautiful the day went. We also had enough time to walk around the area and have some couples shots for the portrait session. I never miss an opportunity to capture some group shots too, we also were able to try out the social distancing group shot on the stairs of the Town Hall.

Katya and Brett got married amongst their family and friends at the Old Marylebone Registry hall in London,  with the reception dinner at the https://www.thealfredtennyson.co.uk/ .

Katya’s family was able to attend the ceremony from Russia, but Brett family still being Australia, witnessed the wedding via face time throughout the day! It was such a magical day as the love story came to a new beginning. Katya met Brett when she was house-hunting in London and Brett had a spare room for their flat. From there on they have been living together and slowly the relationship blossomed and turned into a love story! I mean this is something out of a modern fairy tale book! I am sure for the years to come they will love telling their story to generations and more.

Where did the day start?

At the Hilton Hotel Watford. I joined Sarah and her bridesmaids at the bridal room at 8:30 am to capture the moments before the wedding ceremony and the bridal getting ready. The main reason was that Austin, their son was going to come and visit early before all busy day and wish his parents good luck. I love these moments as these are some moments that the couples will remember through the photographs.

 

Sarah then started getting ready for her 1 pm ceremony with her bridesmaids. The laughter in the room was uncontrollable. I really loved the moment when the bridesmaids had the first look at Sarah in her wedding dress.

 

Sarah’s Dad surprised her with the wedding car he hired for the day which was absolutely royal!.

 

The Ceremony

The ceremony was at the Shenley cricket club, amongst their close friends and family. Sarah rocked her wedding dress with a black diamante silk belt and her personalised Converses which matched with Sam’s too. the dress was from David Bridal.

The Reception.

Sarah and Sam danced on Digital Bath by Deftones for their first dance. It was so electric. The reception also had the Gaming consoles and a wrestling theme through the venue. Did is mention they are a big Game of Thrones fans? They even had their tables named after the game of Thrones houses.

 

Sarah and Sam’s wedding was so much fun, it had a chilled out vibes and lots of laughter.

The Couples shoot

When it’s raining we are not very happy but what if it snows. It was such a romantic day and we absolutely loved having the shoot in the snow. The grounds were all-white matching the theme of the day, Reds, Whites and Blacks. Surely this was planned!

Mehndi ceremony in an Indian wedding ceremony , Barnet, Potters Bar

Indian Mehndi, Vidhi and Haldi ceremony , Potters Bar

Prima’s Mehndi took place at Potter’s bar, at one of our family friends house. Well, it was a family affair and it was a good one. I love taking pictures of my family and have the advantage of being really close to the bride and the family.

The mehndi ceremony is an auspicious ceremony, which since ancient times represents the purity and cleansing of the soul. The smell of hena is supposed to be healing and calming for the bride to calm their last-minute nerves and help with all the stress of the wedding. This is just my interpretation of the ceremony..hehe, don’t quote me on this.

I was able to capture these happy moments for the family and be the part of the day too. Prima looked absolutely gorgeous in the two outfits she wore. I was so happy I got to capture some beautiful portraits of Prima and her sister Rachana.
