We are dying the amazement. You were everywhere capturing everything! And the photos are not only beautiful but just perfect in getting the essence of the day, thank you so much!
It was a real pleasure to photograph Shobhna & Bharat’s Indian wedding at the exquisite Landmark Hotel in London. The Landmark Hotel in London’s Marylebone, is a five star luxury hotel, and was the perfect choice for Shobhna and Bharat’s Hindu wedding and reception. It was my first time, photographing at the Landmark Hotel, and I fell in love with the high ceilings, beautiful chandeliers and the grandeur of the venue, the perfect backdrop for any wedding.
I arrived early at the Landmark Hotel, to capture some photo’s of Shobhna getting ready. Most bride’s normally get ready with the help of a make-up artist, but Shobhna, entrusted this job to her best friends, which made the images of her getting ready extra special. After spending a bit of time with Shobhna and her besties, I went down the street to document the arrival of Bharat to the wedding venue. And normally, groom’s enter with their family and friends, with the help some dhol players making some noise, but not Bharat, he had a traditional bagpipe player instead, which was super cool! Already this was turning out to be an amazing day, and it wasn’t even in full gear yet.
Once Bharat, made his entrance along with the Milni, he entered into the Mandap, and waited for Shobhna, to be escorted into the room, for the ceremony to officially begin. The ceremony, was full of tradition, emotion and a lot of laughter from Shobhna & Bharat. These guys have an amazing sense of humour, and infectious smiles, which made for a brilliant atmosphere throughout the Hindu ceremony.
After the ceremony concluded, we took some family photos, and a few portraits around the hotel, before these two, headed back to their rooms, to get ready for the Civil ceremony and the reception. The Civil ceremony, which was attended by just their nearest and dearest, was full of humour too, thanks to one of the best registrars, i’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. After the civil, everyone made their way to the drinks reception, and joined the other guests, that were drinking cocktails and champagne, with a live Indian musical quartet providing the musical backdrop.
Everyone was then called into the reception room to take their seats, before Shobhna & Bharat made their grand entrance. After that, it was a night of food, speeches, dance performances and a lot of dancing! An awesome moment of the night, was when Shobhna sang ‘Ribbon In The Sky’ to Bharat, their first dance song, her amazing voice, gave everyone goosebumps around the room, including myself. There so many awesome moments throughout the whole day, it was such a pleasure to capture, alongside David from Zenith Cinema.
Massive congratulations to Shobhna and Bharat, thank you once again for choosing me to capture your special day.
