Bengali wedding Photographer Meridian Grand London.  When booking a venue you have to consider a various things. Accessibility, parking, catering capacity and how photogenic it is or could be. The magnificent Meridian Grand, London ticks all those boxes, and more.  This Amazing venue has a capacity of 800. And is a flexible space for all Asian Weddings. Its centre piece is the Dual aspect marble staircase, which makes a beautiful backdrop for a relaxed reception and some amazing wedding portraits.

The featured wedding, maximised the space with lavish decor with plenty of colour. The highlight of the entrance was the family being walked in by saxophonist and funky dhol drummers.  While outside there was a cavalcade of super cars with the grooms car of choice was a yellow wedding Lamborghini.

The Meridian Grand and its team of  wedding planners put on a awesome wedding.  The team and I have worked there many times and each time the events just become grander.

A cool but emotional Muslim Wedding in Birmingham

Muslim Wedding BirminghamThe pace of the day started out a nice steady pace for this Pakistani Wedding, the family were pottering about the house getting ready. The odd occasional mention from dad that car will be here soon.  The grooms sister shouts out “has anyone seen my heels” and mum is looking for the confetti.  Then were off, the wedding car speeds off and I follow. What ensures is a cool but emotional Pakistani Wedding.  at the

Greeted by almost all of guests outside the Badshah Palace in perry barr. The brides sisters stopped the Barrat from getting in, demanding almost £2000 for the chance to step inside.  After some hard negotiations – they settled on £10 each for the cousins, and some jewelry for the older siblings.

The grooms family escorted him to the stage, for the formal pictures and to get ready for the Nikkah.  His bride to be was sitting upstairs, covered in a red veil to ensure her privacy among  the hustle  bustle of the insisting guests, which is the norm at a Pakistani Wedding.

Post Nikkah, the wedding begins, the grand entrance down two flights of stairs and the walk to the stage.  Both eyes look up and for the first time in days get to see each other. A smile washes over the grooms face, and small smile radiates from the bride. The rest as they say, well its the start of their new life.

Luton & Bedfordshire Asian Wedding Photography

St Albans & Luton Asian Wedding don’t get much awesome than this.   An early start as always.  For the photographer this means getting to the venue early to capture the arrival of the guests to the registry office in St Albans.  Photographing the steady arrival of guests sets the scene for the wedding book. The candid and relaxed pictures are essential in illustrating the mood. The short ceremony included a reading from a friend. One of the more emotive moments of the ceremony was the three empty seats, which had reserved placed on them with the names of those who had passed away.

Post ceremony, the organising  of the wedding party  for the formal groups is always challenging. Wandering uncles, and misplaced aunties always take time to find.  After 20 mins, we managed to get the formals done.  Then off to the old Nunnery in St Albans for the wedding portraits. The crumbling walls, blue sky’s and late afternoon light were  the perfect combination for stunning pictures.

After the shoot, the groom sped of in his sports car, and we were left with the bride. So we crammed her and her dress in the small jeep and headed off to Luton, the couples home to get ready for part two of the day.

The low key ceremony in St Albans gave way to the glamorous and more opulent evening reception. The bride collected by a limousine with her family, arrived majestically at the Meridian Grand, London. Greeted by 500 guests, we were in for a Big ole Asian Wedding.  This is what a St Albans & Luton Asian Wedding feels like.

Wedding photography Andaz Hotel London. Emma & Ross’s wedding at the Andaz Hotel London, was a perfect example of style meets emotion.  The day started off with a lot of activity in the bridal suite. The feel in the room was almost party like, 6 friends getting ready for a big day. At times emotions did run high, the odd hug here and there and the occasional tear.

While in the Pub on the corner, the boys were chatting and laughing over a couple of jars. Not about the wedding but about suits and football.  Well what did you expect. The light heartiness of the groomsmen meant that I could capture some very relaxed and casual moments.

The civil ceremony was at a gentle pace, with a handful of friends and family just the way the wanted, followed by a few glasses of champagne in the light filled mezzanine on the first floor. So while guests were enjoying their drinks I took the newly weds off for some early wedding portraits.

The Andaz has some amazing opportunities, and the Masonic Halls, wow just an amazing place for pictures.

But then the wedding breakfast was a no hold barred fusion of Greek traditions and Essex partying. The partying went down well set amongst the old world charm of the hotels dinning rooms, the speeches were epic with some side splitters which is always good for candid style shits. This is what  Wedding photography in the Andaz Hotel London looks like.

For some, an Asian Weddings is a slow-paced affair, everything at a gentle pace. While most of the couples, that book me, plan a wedding not as sedate. But we’re not talking over the top elements, fancy chair covers, or fast cars, they rely on their guests, families and friends to add the atmosphere and vibe of the wedding day.

From the energetic dancing and dhol to mark the arrival of the barrat, to the equally abundant voices at the gate, barring the groom from entering the venue, unless they hand over some solid cash. The reverence of the khutba by the Imam, and the elegant bridal entrance. All these moments, that define the day, and create the story of Asian Weddings. 

 The story then becomes abundant of pictures, and I look for the unconventional moments that prompt the day, that you may miss, but will love to relive once you see them.   

Heres a little story I loved to photograph and retell in the heart of the Cheshire countryside.

Woburn Abbey Asian Wedding Photographer.  In a snow blizzard,  the team and I were on the way to the Woburn Asian Wedding fair.  For those who braved the snow they got a sneak peak new Luxury Wedding Books. As well meeting some great suppliers from across the South East, to help plan their weddings.

Woburn Sculpture Gallery, is main attraction for Asian weddings. The long room with high windows allows in plenty of natural light which is a photographers dream.  The room is dotted with pristine columns, and in between plenty of marble statues.

The Sculpture gallery has a cool secret, the orangery.  A tropical oasis in the heart of Bedfordshire, which is an amazing spot for some memorable photos. After the awesome fashion show featuring Kian-E Haute Couture  ,  and as the Woburn Abbey Asian Wedding Photographer, I was asked to capture some stunning photographs of all the models an array of Asian wedding saris and lenghas.

The range of suppliers and vendors was nothing short of brilliant. And the  Venue hosts and Wedding planners are the most helpful you can find.

The Engagement shoot in the heart of the city. As the 9-5 workday ended, I met up with Leena & Hamir, in the heart of the city to capture a few pictures for their wedding entrance slide show.  They wanted to tell their story; from when they were young, to how they met. That’s where I come in.  A pre-wedding/ engagement  shoot like this takes more often than not a couple of hours. This particular day, was the beginning of spring and a  little longer than normal, so we decided to take in the sights along The Thames and capture some of the London skylines.

 

First stop was the icon that is St Pauls Cathedral, the beacon of hope during testing times. The Cathedral looked amazing draped in the golden light of a late London Afternoon.  We ventured closer and manged to find a tourist free spot on the steps, and clicked a few more.  The biggest challenge for during the course of the session is that both mentioned that they did not like being in front of the camera, so my job was to ease them in and make them relaxed and enjoy the time taking pictures. I think i manged that.

A winter wedding Claridge’s London

Asian Weddings are crazy in the best possible way, however, Jewish Weddings are up there with the best of them. The day was long one, but started late in the afternoon.  As usual the bride wanted to capture the moments of her family and brides maids getting ready in the suite. The atmosphere was one of joy and abundant love. The bride to be was cool as a cucumber.  She had been getting ready since 10am, by the time I started photographing the details she was still in her rollers.

Her mum was fussing over her, and dad was tending to the little details with the wedding planner. Suddenly dad walks through the door at the price time that his daughter opens the door to her room, in her wedding dress.  A gulp is heard, throat clearing and tear twinned with a smile appears on her fathers face.

The main ceremony was to be held at the Central Synagogue in London, a prominent venue for Jewish Weddings. She jumped into a classic Rolls Royce, and makes her way there. What followed was a ceremony like no other,  tears, joy and happiness.

With the ceremony done, the main event was the reception at Claridge’s. The history of the venue lent it self well to the modern take on a traditional Simicha – live bands, dancing, and the traditional breaking of the bread.  The wedding portraits were and absolute pleasure to shoot, and we discovered some great spaces to photograph in.

Tatton Park is the perfect perfect venue if you like the idea of a manor house as a beautiful backdrop for your  Asian Wedding. Your photographs will undoubted be memorable.  Photographing in such a unique venue gives me the opportunity to flex those creative nodules and get some stunning shots for your wedding story Book.  Nestled in Cheshire  country side is one of those elegant houses that blend into landscape but stands out as your backdrop. So letting the bride and groom be the stars of the day.

This Muslim wedding will always be one of my most memorable, not only because of the bride and groom. But the weather. It had been snowing for three days before the wedding and it was touch and go.  The night before, frantic calls between me and the couple to plan day and to rework the schedule.  The best way to deal with the British weather is to ignore it and carry on regardless.

The snow did not hamper the day, in fact it added to in bucket loads. The bride did actually get to wear the most comfortable shoes ever… have a look. The snow filled field added to the drama for the wedding portrait  photos and if  I remember clearly the groom made a SnowGroom!

The decor on the day was in keeping with the elegant charm of the house, and very traditional reds.
