Rahul these are amazing!! You’ve got some incredible shots. Literally perfect timing! I especially love both of the one’s with my dad’s, even though I’m crying. Thank you! Love it!
Shivani & Sunny’s chose the Heston Hyde Hotel, London, for their Hindu wedding and reception. Heston Hyde hotel is brand new hotel, near Heathrow Airport, it’s a really good contemporary venue to hold a Hindu wedding and reception.
I started the day documenting Sunny’s arrival on a white horse, and his family alongside him dancing all the way to greet Shivani’s family. His arrival set the tone for the rest of the day, I knew it was gonna be a crazy celebration, and an absolute joy to shoot. After Sunny’s arrival, I went up to document the final stages of Shivani’s bridal prep, just before entering the mandap. Shivani was super excited, but also some nerves were kicking in with anticipation. Once she met Sunny, those nerves disappeared in an instant. The Hindu ceremony was full of smiles, laughter and full of emotion, the perfect recipe for any wedding.
After the wedding, it was onto the reception. It was awesome that Sunny and Shivani joined their wedding guests for drinks, canapés and got to mingle with everyone. I always try to encourage this at every wedding, as it make’s for awesome photo’s plus its your day and you should be having fun with your guests, drinking champagne and having fun! One highlight of the day has to be at the wedding reception, when Sunny jumped onto the dance floor with Shivani’s cousins, and threw some shapes. Everyone cheered, clapped and hollered. People were ready to party!
Shivani and Sunny are two of the warmest and kindest people I’ve met, and Sunny doesn’t take no for an answer when offering you a drink. You drink it. These two are truly unique, wonderful people with plenty of love for one another and their family & friends. I could talk for ages about these guys, and everyone around them, but i’m going to let the story of their day be told in the images below.
Thank you once and again Sunny & Shivani for allowing me to capture your day and congratulations to you both once again, Sunny see you at the bar!
