What a year 2017 has been! As well as being blessed with my first child – my son Reuben, I have been fortunate enough to be documenting wonderfully colourful weddings across the UK and beyond. Bela and Lorenzo’s celebrations were no exception and I was absolutely delighted to have been their Indian wedding photographer for their events.

Their Hindu wedding and reception took place at The Conservatory at Painshill Park under the summer skies. Again, it was great to see so many familiar faces, friends and past couples. This event was particularly unique as I was able to document the union of a Greek and Indian cultural fusion, which I really enjoyed.

The groom’s entrance was especially memorable as the Jaan was led by Lorenzo’s very musically gifted brothers. Seriously, these guys know their way around a guitar (with vocals to match). The entrance concluded with Bhangra music led by Bela’s side. It felt like the reception party was kicking off and the day had only just begun!

The Hindu wedding ceremony was a new experience for Lorenzo and his family, but it was certainly an occasion that was enjoyed by all who attended. The Greek party influence was evident during the reception where energetic traditional dancing from various members of the family really stole the show (as you’ll see in the pictures below). But it was the union of these two families that I really enjoyed documenting and that is what I strive to do, in the most honest and creative way possible.

Bela and Lorenzo are the kind of people that are completely relatable and genuine. It was an absolute pleasure being a part of their celebrations and I wish them both the very best and a long and happy marriage together.

Below are some of the highlights from the day. I hope you enjoy them – J.

It was a pleasure providing the Indian wedding photography for Chantelle and Kayur at Froyle Park. Chantelle is the younger sister of Jo, whose wedding I documented some months prior and whose pre-wed shoot I featured earlier in the year. Froyle Park is such a beautiful estate. Incidentally, it was also my first wedding photography experience here. Surrounded by plenty of greenery and backed by a magnificent manor house dating back to the 1600s it had all the makings for a great event.

The grounds, setting and weather all came together on the day and provided a very memorable occasion for all. The day started with the Hindu wedding, followed by the Civil wedding and Reception. A long day as you can imagine, but charged with laughter and emotion throughout, which made photographing the entire occasion such an enjoyable experience. As usual, I met a lot of familiar faces from past and future couples so it is always nice to catch up when there is a little bit of downtime.

The Hindu wedding ceremony itself was conducted by none other than Rajubhai, whom I have worked with many times in the past. Indian weddings by nature can certainly be a stressful occasion at times, however his ceremonies, timekeeping and crowd interaction are at such a high standard that any apparent stress is diffused in the process. He is simply a great person to work alongside with and it’s always a pleasure when we meet at such occasions.

I also got to meet Parita Patel – the wedding planner for the day. Such is her efficiency to coordinate so well, she actually saved 30 mins in time on the day. Anyone who knows about Indian weddings will know that this is quite unheard of and is a testament to her ability in the field.

Looking through the full body of pictures, it is clear to see that Chantelle and Kayur are besotted with each other. Individually, they are great people and together they make such a wonderful match. I really do wish them every success with their married life. However, for the moment, I would like to share with you some of the highlights from their big day. I hope you enjoy the images.

Pooja and Kurran’s Hindu Wedding and Reception was held at the Guoman Tower Hotel, right opposite Tower Bridge in London. I was delighted when they chose me to be their Indian wedding photographer.

As bride and grooms go, you could say that Kurran is the cool cat, whilst Pooja is simply bursting with energy! Together, they form a wonderful couple and I had such a great time documenting their celebrations. I also cannot speak highly enough of their families as they simply made me feel very welcome on the day.

Again, congratulations to you both. Here are a few of my favourites from the day.
