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

Wedding Storybooks

Wedding Storybook: Your wedding day is one of the most special and memorable days of your life. Capturing the moments of that day through photography is crucial to relive those cherished memories. However, the way in which you present those photographs can significantly impact how you and others experience them. This is where wedding storybooks come in – they have revolutionised the way in which you can access and share your wedding day in a social and personally engaging way.

While digital copies of photographs may be more convenient, there are some significant benefits to having a printed wedding storybook. One of the most apparent benefits is the physical presence of a book that you can hold, flip through, and feel. Unlike digital copies that can be lost in a sea of files, wedding storybooks stand out as a tangible objects that can evoke a sense of nostalgia and wonder every time you revisit them.

Moreover, wedding storybooks allow you to curate your wedding day’s story and flow, making it a more personalized experience. With a printed album, you can arrange your photos in an order that makes sense to you, and you can add meaningful captions to accompany each picture. This creates a narrative that brings back the emotions and memories of your wedding day, making it easier to relive those moments.

Another critical aspect of printed wedding storybooks is their longevity. Digital photos can quickly become outdated as technology advances, making them inaccessible as time goes on. A printed album, on the other hand, is a timeless keepsake that can be passed down from generation to generation, becoming an essential family heirloom that tells your family’s story.

While digital copies of photographs are more convenient, they lack the physical and emotional impact of a printed wedding storybook. Having a printed album allows you to create a personalised narrative that can be passed down for generations to come. Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and investing in a high-quality wedding storybook is an investment in reliving those memories for years to come.

The Hilton Syon Park host to a amazing Hindu wedding.

Leena and Hamir’s Asian wedding journey with me started around 6 months before the wedding with an engagement shoot in the heart of London. Fast forward one Engagement shoot, three planning sessions later we are at The Hilton Syon

Leena and Hamir’s Asian wedding journey with me started around 6 months before the wedding with an engagement shoot in the heart of London. Fast forward one Engagement shoot, three planning sessions later we are at The Hilton Syon Park.

An early start, and lots of moments to capture, the morning atmosphere was relaxed. Full of joy and anticipation of the day ahead, just as Leena & Hamir had discussed.  The Hindu ceremony was lively and full of charm. The Priest while reading in Sanskrit also translated the ceremony in English, so everyone could understand.

The Hilton Syon Park, is nestled in the grounds of Syon House just slight west of Chiswick.  Syon House lends it self well as a eye catching backdrop for for some emotive portraits. Both on site and off site, and if you time it properly you may be able to get on the sandy beach. The evening reception was electric and contrasted the traditional ceremony of the morning, with a Disney style theme, and the Engagement shoot was shown as a slide show just before they made their entrance into the reception.

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.
