I was excited to photograph my first ever wedding at Sofitel Hotel in London Heathrow and so happy when Radhika & Jai asked me to be their wedding photographer. I first met Radhika & Jai, when Jai asked me to photograph his surprise proposal to Radhika at his family home. I knew from their proposal that their wedding would be amazing and full of emotion, and I wasn’t wrong!
I spent the week leading up to Radhika and Jai’s wedding with their families photographing all their pre-wedding ceremonies, and got to know them all really well and they all treated me as a part of their family, which made photographing their wedding day extra special. Hindu weddings are always an adventure for photographers and even more so for me, the non-stop rollercoaster of emotions, the calm mixed in with the manic, so many colours and of course amazing parties, Radhika & Jai’s wedding at Sofitel in London Heathrow, was of course no different. An amazing day of celebrations.
Radhika & Jai both got ready at Sofitel, after photographing their preps, Jai made his way down for his Baraat, where they danced alongside an amazing band, which led Jai to meet Radhika’s family before being led to the mandap by Radhika’s parents to begin the wedding ceremony. Radhika made her own grand entrance moments later. Their Hindu ceremony was full of mixed emotions, and was beautifully conducted by Kamal Pandey alongside Shiv Gopal.
Thank you Radhika & Jai for letting me be a part of all your wonderful celebrations, it was such an honour to document your Indian wedding.
Here are some of my favourite moments from Radhika & Jai’s Sofitel Heathrow Indian wedding…
