Engagement Party Ruislip London

Suren and Ria’s engagement party at the Venue 5 in Ruislip, London

 

Suren and Rai booked me where they wanted to capture some natural shots of the event. Of course, Indian ceremonies are very lenghty and pricise. So many details to consider when you are photographing the day. I was at the venue from the morning and then in the evening for the engagement party.

 

Here the two families came together and celebrate the engagement of Suren and Ria. I love how everyone was in such a joyous mood all day that it flew by so fast.

Here are some portraits of Suren and Ria that we were able to snap just before they evening party.


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.

Trendy Shoreditch elopement story London

Last month I was in Brick lane, Barbican and Angel area in London for an elopement. It was a dream come true as I am in London all the time and I finally got to photograph in this beautiful city I love. I mean who wouldn’t want a doughnut on their wedding day and a burger for dinner! It does not get trendier than this.


Barn wedding Styled shoot with two wedding dresses

A Modern barn wedding shoot inspiration

Back in November, I went to do a shoot at the Partick’s barn with other vendors who collaborated to make this shoot happen. I have always loved a dress in Blush, but I am also a black color kinda girl. I love the contrast in the colors on the two brides.  The idea behind the shoot was to show that you dont have to go rustic to get married in a barn!.

I really hope you enjoy the images. Please also check out my feature on the Unconventional Wedding blog link here.
