What is the perfect Asian wedding venue?  Couples all have the dream wedding venue in mind, sometimes couples do have varying opinions of what is the perfect venue.  For some, it’s functional places, like a dedicated venue like Nawaabs London, or Arianna Gardens.  For others, it’s a Manor House with rolling fields backing onto a lake with sailboats in the distance. 

Your wedding day is one of the most important and memorable events of your life. From the dress and the flowers to the food and the music, every detail should be perfect. One of the most important decisions you’ll make is choosing the right venue. Not only should it be functional and comfortable for your guests, but it should also provide a beautiful backdrop for your wedding photographs. Here are some tips for picking the perfect wedding venue that could lead to some amazing Asian Wedding Pictures.

Consider the lighting:
When you’re looking at potential venues, pay attention to the lighting. The best lighting for wedding photos is natural light, so look for a venue with large windows or outdoor space. If the venue doesn’t have great natural light, make sure it has good artificial lighting that can be adjusted to create the right atmosphere.


Think about the scenery:

The scenery is a critical element in setting the tone for your wedding photos. Choose a venue with beautiful scenery and architecture, whether it’s a stunning garden or a historic building. Make sure the scenery complements the theme of your wedding, so everything looks cohesive.

Research the location

The location of your wedding venue will play a significant role in your wedding photography. Look for venues that are close to scenic locations or landmarks that you might want to include in your wedding photos. If you’re planning a destination wedding, make sure to scout out the best spots beforehand.

Check the rules:

Some venues have strict rules about photography, which could limit your photographer’s creativity. Be sure to ask the venue about their photography policies before you book, so you know what to expect.


Visit the venue in person:

Before you book a venue, it’s crucial to visit it in person. This will give you a chance to see the lighting, scenery, and location for yourself, and to imagine how your wedding photos will look. Take a camera with you to take some test shots and see how the venue looks on camera.

Your wedding venue is an essential aspect of your wedding day. It sets the tone and creates the backdrop for your wedding photos, which you’ll treasure for a lifetime. Keep these tips in mind as you search for the perfect venue, and you’re sure to find one that will create the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos.

Well we can all dream right, if you are still not sure about the venue have a look at the venue list in a previous blog post  here  or visit Asian Venue Guide here

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.

Moor Park Golf Club Photographer London. Your Getting married, in one of grandest venues in north-west London, Moor Park Golf Club. Your friends and family are gathering downstairs for the registry wedding. What’s on your mind?  nerves, butterflies, the future?  No,  not for our groom to be. He wants to play a quick game of billiards!  What better way to calm the nerves and get in the right “frame” of mind,  and an awesome opportunity to grab some off-piste wedding pictures.

Hindu Wedding Moor Park

When the time comes, our groom said his wedding vows with ease and the odd mix up of words but he got there. An elegant and short ceremony, which are always challenging, and means I have limited opportunity to get the shots that capture the moments and atmosphere, but by Jove did we get them. The ceremony was followed by a champagne reception and canapes.

The wedding portraits, we had a short time to get some relaxed but stylised images, that both captured their love for each other and the grandness of the venue. The wrap balcony and painted ceiling make Moor Park Mansion and an absolute joy to photograph and has led them to become one of the top-rated venues for Asian Weddings.

Asian Weddings are boring…so this couple changed the script

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.

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.
