“You’ve literally captured everything i’m so so so happy you were part of our day!”
I was super excited to shoot Sheena and Sagar’s Indian wedding earlier this year at the Riverside Venue in West London. I had met Sheena before at Natasha and Aman’s Hedsor House wedding, as well as Jason & Tina’s Cardiff wedding, and it’s always flattering when someone from the same group of friends books you for their wedding too. They are such an amazing group of friends, who always make me feel so welcome, and it was a total delight to photograph another wedding with so many familiar faces attending.
When I arrived at Riverside Venue for Sheena and Sagar’s wedding, it was brilliant to work with Hindu priest Hemang Bhatt, we don’t often get to work together but whenever we do its a total pleasure and his ceremonies are always beautifully filled with emotion, Sheena and Sagar’s wedding was no different. My day started with Sagar’s jaan arrival with his family, who were ready to be greeted by Sheena’s family and welcomed into the Riverside Venue. Once Sagar made his way into the mandap, I went to see Sheena’s to capture some final bridal preps and take a few portraits before being escorted into the mandap by her brother, to officially start the wedding ceremony.
Sheena and Sagar wore the biggest smiles on their faces throughout the day, the happiness around them was infectious. Their Hindu wedding ceremony was full of joy, love, full of tradition, packed full of small moments between Sheena & Sagar, everything you want from a wedding celebration. After the ceremony was over we went outside for a few portraits before heading back in for the games, which Sheena won hands down (sorry Sagar!) followed by an emotional Vidhai.
What an amazing day this was, and the evening was just as good with some hilarious speeches, amazing food and an epic party thanks to Ritzy Music, the perfect end to a perfect day.
Congratulations Sheena and Sagar, thank you so much for letting me be a part of your wedding day, it was an honour. Now on to some of my favourite images from their Indian wedding and reception at Riverside Venue. I had an amazing time shooting an Indian wedding at Riverside Venue, Heathrow, it was the perfect setting for any Wedding Ceremony. If you’re planning on having a wedding in London, or anywhere else in the world, then please get in touch. I’d love to hear all about it and have the opportunity to be your wedding photographer.
