We all love a list and we’re working on a few more. But let’s start this going with Top 5 Asian wedding photography tips:

Plan, Plan, Plan

Have a clear and defined structure of your day. I encourage couples to start sketching out their plan, this ensures that there is a certain order to the day, which allows for clear defines moments that I can capture.

Shot List

Have a shot list: As wedding photographers, yes we are amazing, and we do our best to produce awesome wedding photos, but we are not mindreaders. We cannot second guess your exact requirements. Once my clients have booked and confirmed their wedding date. We start to discuss the wedding plans in more details and have a very long conversation about shot lists. I know what I need to capture, to tell the story. However, I still have a conversation about shots with the couple, just to make sure we are on the same page and ask for their specific requirements. That’s when things like these get mentioned. ” my uncle from Canada is coming to the wedding, I need a picture of him” and “can you take a picture of the menu cards, my nieces made those”

Rehearse

Rehearse the key moments of the day. This is common practice at church weddings, where the vicar, walks the couple and family through a practice ceremony so they know what to expect on the day, where people should stand etc. In an ideal world, everyone who is planning an Asian wedding would do this. The rehearsal is important for the key moments so that they are the ones that stay in the wedding book, walking down the aisle, flower girls throwing petals, The wedding ceremony, etc. These if not rehearsed can look messy.

Timings

Keep the family portraits session short, simple so you can focus on having a good time, and making memories, and not just sit on a stage for 4 hours. One of the key focuses of my time on the wedding day is looking for those little stories that make up your wedding. Yes, the “formals” are important too but do you really need 40 group shots. My recommendation to my clients is to-do the key immediate family shots, then do a BIG group shout with all the guests.

Enjoy the day

Have fun. The wedding is a celebration for you to enjoy yourself, so hand over the management of the wedding to someone you can trust on the day. Ideally, a wedding planner who will keep things running smoothly, that was this frees you up to enjoy the day, and to enjoy your hard work in putting the wedding together.

A lovely late summer wedding. The summer sun was out. The heat was on. The Walled gardens wildflowers set the scene for a lovely layed back wedding.  A cross between a boho chic wedding and beach wedding was the feel couple were aiming for. The  short ceremony followed by a light drinks reception with plenty of Pimms and sandals to go around.

The formal group shots were a breeze, but the busy bees were a little to keen on the Pimms.  The newly wedds wanted a few wedding portriats, just enough to provide a highlight to the wedding story book.  But they really wanted to get back to the guests and have a good old time, and wanted me to capture the essence of the wedding.

The bright sunny day brings a positive start to the day. But provides us, photographers with challenge, a technical one. While we look forward to sunny days, we do hope for a little cloud cover.  Why? you will wonder, well the bright light of summers sun is often to harsh, we look for warmer softer tones to make you look your best.

The Barrat arrives with 200 guests dancing to the beat of the Dohl drums. Enjoyed and light breakfast then in to the gardens for a open air ceremony.  Hindu Weddings are long and need to be as the Ceremony has many facets to it, each with its on tradition and meaning.  After the gifts had been exchanged and the Sindoor and Manjal Sutra had been placed, they were married.  After the meet and greet, and  while the guests enjoy their starters we whisk the couple away for some portraits.

Theme it: Choose a unique theme that is personal to you and your partner.

Pakistani Craic the big wedding At McWillam Park Hotel Ireland

What happens when you combine a Pakistani Muslim Wedding with Irish Culture?  You get a Craic of an Asian Wedding. The team and I travelled across the waters to photograph a wedding at the Asian Wedding At McWillam Park

What happens when you combine a Pakistani Muslim Wedding with Irish Culture?  You get a Craic of an Asian Wedding. The team and I travelled across the waters to photograph a wedding at the Asian Wedding At McWillam Park Hotel Ireland, Asian Wedding Ireland in the rural setting of Claire Morris in Co Mayo.

We arrived late on the friday evening, picked up from the airport and taken to meet the families. by 1am we had met most of them, from the younger newborns to the elders of the family  who had been flown in from Pakistan. We truly felt part of the family.

The wedding started like most do the traditional barrat entrance, dhol players, music and dancing lots of dancing.  After the ceremony, the wedding took on a different personality.  It suddenly became an Irish Wedding – more music and loads more dancing, everything from Bhangra, Bollywood and Break dancing.

From the moment the team and I flew in the night before, we were immersed in the local culture from the get-go until we departed two days later. A bit blurry-eyed but with fond memories of the Craic At McWillam Park Hotel Ireland. An amazing hotel, and the party never stopped.  Looking forward to the next Asian Wedding Ireland

The De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms sits on an unimposing street in the heart of London and is spectacular. It stands tall and dominates its surroundings. The ornate interiors add to the opulence of any Asian Wedding. The grand staircase leads you to the main hall, through the wooden panelled doors, and you are transported to another era, the high ceilings, the ornate chandeliers and baroque features take your breath away, even for me a photographer who has worked there many times. 

 

Grand Connaught Rooms Asian Wedding

The day started off at ME Hotel Holborn, with a futuristic almost Blade Runner style lobby. A quick few shots of the couple, then off to the Connaught rooms, for more wedding portraits and the wedding reception, where 300 of their friends and family were awaiting their arrival. The drinks flowed and the party was well underway, with a very relaxed entrance by the newlyweds and their parents. The speeches were short, succinct and side-splitting. The dance routine by the close friends of the newlyweds was a double treat. Then the big dance-off, Team Bride v Team Groom. An epic battle ensued with legendary dance-offs by the dads! This was the climax to momentous week of celebrations & ceremonies. now to kick back and enjoy. Oh and the dancing bride… well just scroll down and see.

Wedding stories are best views in an awesome Wedding Story Book.  So the opportunity arise to photograph a wedding atop Europe’s tallest building, The Shard.  So I jumped at the chance and knew exactly how i would present the story.

It was a winter wedding, the crisp December air was biting at my feet, but as i stepped into the lobby ready to be escorted to top I had defrosted. Shaking off the winter chill, the lift flew me up what seemed like 100 floors in a matter of seconds. At times it felt faster that the lifts at the Empire State building.

As you step out of the lift onto the open plan floor,  London is literally at your feet, with almost a 360 view of the capital.  The hotel was like a oasis of calm in the bustle that is London.  The wedding had a great vibe from the start, with all fun in the brides dressing room, to the sincerity in the grooms room.

The wedding was small and intimate 40 of their nearest and dearest to  wittiness the ceremony presided over by the Brides maid of honour who was a registered celebrant.  This is how we told the final story in a bespoke luxury wedding story book.
