Amazing images Rahul – Neha is currently in tears.
Neha and Rajan’s Indian Wedding and Reception at Royal Lancaster, London, had everything you could want when photographing a Hindu wedding and Reception. It was full of love, tradition, emotions, rituals, the joining together of two families and – of course – a huge party to finish an already amazing day.
My day started off super early in the morning at Rajan’s family home where he was getting ready, followed by a short Puja before leaving to make his grand arrival at Royal Lancaster, London. Rajan parked up a short walk away from the hotel, so he could make his arrival known, not only to Neha and her family but everyone in the streets of London that were nearby. He was accompanied to the hotel entrance with dhol players, his family dancing on the streets and plenty of smoke flares! It was just a joy to watch and capture.
After making his arrival, I went to see Neha who was just having her final make-up touches done, before she made her entrance into the grand ballroom of the Royal Lancaster Hotel. Their wedding ceremony – which was conducted beautifully by Hindu Priest Party Joshi, and accompanied by Shiv Gopal Music – was filled with laughter and emotion, and some really amazing moments between them. After the ceremony, we went off to Hyde Park to make some portraits, before the official goodbyes during the vidhai ceremony.
The evening started off with a drinks reception, before Neha and Rajan made their entrance into the grand ballroom, where all their family and friends were dancing thanks to the brilliant Gilev Showband. The rest of the night was full of amazing food, some hilarious speeches and an unforgettable party, which went on till 1am.
It’s always rewarding documenting a wedding with so much love and emotion. Congratulations Neha and Rajan, 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 Royal Lancaster London.
