Destination pre wedding photography in the Seychelles

Seychelles Pre Wedding Event Shoot at the Constance Ephélia Resort

Mayur and Nikkita’s beautiful Seychelles wedding reception events took place following their incredible Hindu wedding at the Potters Bar Oshwal Centre in Hertfordshire and was an amazing few days.

The day before their first event at the Constance Ephélia Resort and Hotel at Port Launay, Mahe Island In the Seychelles, we took a little bit of time to get some pre wedding event photographs around the lovely resort.

The Constance Ephélia Resort is set in the most stunning location in the Seychelles on a white sand beach with lush vegetation and was the perfect setting for some destination pre wedding photographs.

Here are a few images from this destination pre wedding event shoot at the Constance Ephilia Hotel in the Seychelles.



Oshwal Centre Hindu Wedding Photography

Hindu Wedding Photography at the Potters Bar Oshwal Centre

Mayur and Nikkita’s Hindu wedding took place at the Oshwal Centre in Potters Bar and was stunningly put together by Event Planners and Coordinators, Raj and Tina Shah.

The day began with Mayur getting ready at the Stanmore Mandir and Nikkita’s bridal preparations taking place at the Oshwal centre before the couple came together for the Hindu wedding ceremony in North London. The venue is perfect for Asian weddings as it has a huge capacity and is surrounded by stunning grounds and gardens as well as a breathtakingly unique Jain Temple that makes a unique backdrop for wedding photographs. 

Mayur’s Baraat, which is the grooms entrance to a Hindu wedding was colourful and lively and Mayur came in by a beautiful Rickshaw which was an energetic and fun start to the wedding ceremony. The Hindu ceremony itself was conducted by the incredible Kamal Pandey who is one of the most amazing Hindu priests in the country and is always a pleasure to work with. The combination of music by Shiv Gopal and the calm serenity of Kamal is something that is truly magical and creates the most uniquely special wedding ceremony that always wows guests.

Following the ceremony we were able to make use of the stunning temple and gardens for some couple photographs and we were blessed with amazing weather and beautiful backdrops before heading back to the mandap for Kodi Kodi games which included the fishing for rings in milk game that is always my favourite as it really gets the friends and family involved as they cheer on either the bride and groom.

The couple’s reception events were to be held in the Seychelles and so the couple made a lovely exit following the emotional vidaai.

Here are a few images from this Hindu wedding at the Oshwal Centre in Potters Bar. Many thanks to my talented second photographer, Sarah Pipkin and videographer Hari-Om who were a pleasure to work with.

Indian Wedding and Reception at De Vere Beumont Estate

Following a stunning civil wedding at Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire, Ian and Sheena’s Indian and Scottish fusion wedding continued into the Hindu wedding which took place at the incredible De Vere Beaumont Estate in Old Windsor.

Sheena’s bridal prep took place at the De Vere Hotel and she looked absolutely incredible in her Indian attire.

Ian made his Indian Baraat wedding entrance with a Scottish twist by coming in to bagpipes with lots of dancing and this was the perfect way to blend these two cultures together. The Hindu ceremony is one of my favourites to photograph as it is so colourful and full of interesting traditions such as walking round the fire, the seven vows and the exchanging of garlands. A fun tradition at Indian weddings is the brides side attempting to steal the grooms shoes and it is the duty of the grooms entourage to protect these for the groom. Ian was lucky enough to have a seven strong team of rugby players to carry out this duty and it was hilarious to see them being foiled by one young kid!

The grounds of the De Vere Beumont Estate are perfect for couple photographs and we had such a great time capturing some lovely wedding portraits before the couple retired to get ready for the evening reception which was also taking place at the De Vere Hotel in Old Windsor.

The Hindu reception after the Indian wedding was a great way to end this multi day Indian and Scottish fusion wedding and began with reception drinks in the courtyard that had been decorated with an impressive message tree and florals. Guests then moved inside for the reception meal which was followed by dancing and music by Kudos who always know how to keep the party going and guests on the dance floor.

Here are a few images from this Scottish/Indian fusion Hindu wedding ceremony and reception at the De Vere Beaumont Estate in Old Windsor.

Stoke Park Wedding Reception Photography in Buckinghamshire

Hindu Civil Wedding Photography at Stoke Park

Ian and Sheena’s Hindu Scottish fusion wedding started with a lovely civil wedding ceremony at the stunning Stoke Park Hotel, Spa and Country Club in Buckinghamshire and was an day filled with laughter and smiles as these two cultures came together to celebrate the civil wedding ceremony.

The day began with bridal preparations at Stoke Park and Sheena looked beautiful in her Jimmy Choo’s and backless wedding dress by Alon Livne as she walked down the isle with a string quartet playing.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed reception drinks as we headed outside to the grounds of Stoke Park for the couples wedding photographs. Stoke Park is such an amazing place for a wedding and the gardens are the perfect backdrop for bride and groom portraits. Ian and Sheena were such good fun to work with and it was a pleasure taking their photographs.

The couple were lucky enough to have booked The Wedding Film Makers for their videography who are amazingly talented and are such a dream to work with. 

The couple’s main reception was to be held after the Hindu wedding and the Mehndi evening for the Hindu wedding was taking place on the evening of the wedding so the couple made an impressive exit to get ready for this in a classic Austin-Healey car that was a perfect fit for the venue.

The Hindu Mehndi night was an intimate event and just as much fun as the civil wedding ceremony with lots of colour, laughter and dancing as well as some lively performances from friends.

Here are a few images from this Stoke Park Wedding ceremony in Buckinghamshire and Hindu Mehndi night.

Destination Engagement Photography in Iceland

Iceland pre wedding winter engagement photography

Iceland is one of my favourite locations in the world and so it worked out perfectly when I was able to fly out to Reykjavik in Iceland to meet up with Alex and Emma for their winter engagement shoot.

Despite the extremely poor weather conditions, visibility and wind we were still able to visit a few of my favourite locations close to Reykjavik to get some images in some great spots including Skogafoss Waterfall, Seljalandsfoss waterfall and a few other spots along the way. 

Emma is a talented artist and has a keen interest in animal art and so it was great that we stumbled on some rather wild but tame Icelandic horses. Keen photographers themselves we were able to build in some time for photographs of the horses and waterfalls and it was lovely to see them sharing photography so passionate with each other.

We were even more fortunate that the weather cleared up dramatically and we were treated to a beautiful sunset as the shoot come to an end.

Looking forward to capturing this amazing couples wedding later this year. Here are a few images from this destination engagement shoot in Iceland.
