Pre Wedding Photography in London England

Central London Pre Wedding Photography

Sid and Devika's autumn pre wedding shoot in London was such a fun day. Devika had travelled over from one of my favourite places, Pune in India to meet up with Sid and have their UK pre wedding photographs set with the incredible London backdrop.

We started the shoot surrounded by golden autumn couloirs in St James's Park before moving through Horseguards Parade and along the Southbank to St Pauls which holds a very special place in this couples heart as this is where Sid proposed. We finished the shoot around the London Bridge area which is always such an incredible location for a pre wedding engagement shoot as it is such a unique setting in the city.

Here are a few images from this central London pre wedding shoot with Sid and Devika.

Pakistani Wedding Photography at the Ritz in London

The Ritz Hotel in Piccadilly, London is one of the most iconic and luxurious hotels in the world and was the perfect setting for Jibraun and Sonya's Pakistani wedding celebration. Following a stunning pre wedding South Asian Mehndi at the Sheraton Grand in Park Lane, the wedding event itself was another incredible event.

The day began with the bride and groom getting ready in the lovely suites at the Ritz and as the couple are from Los Angeles in the USA they held an American style first look in front of the Ritz before heading in for a beautifully emotional ceremony.

The wedding reception was held between the Marie Antoinette and Music room which are both incredibly luxurious entertaining spaces and an incredible setting for this South Asian wedding celebration.

After dinner there was plenty of dancing and fun followed by an emotional Rukhsati send off as family send the bride off to her new life. 

Here are a few images from this beautiful Pakistani wedding at the Ritz in London and you can check out some images from the pre wedding Mehndi here.

Pakistani Pre Wedding Mehndi Photography in London

Jibraun and Sonya's Pakistani wedding in London was a truly international event and began with an incredible opening event at the Park Lane Sheraton Grand in London before their main wedding event at The Ritz.

This incredible American couple are based in sunny Los Angeles, California and travelled over to London to celebrate their wedding in the UK with friends and family from around the world. The day before their main wedding event at the Ritz in London, the Mehndi Raat at the Sheraton was the perfect way to begin these celebrations.

Before the Mehndi event, we spent the afternoon exploring London and capturing some beautiful wedding portraits around some of London's iconic landmarks such as Big Ben, Westminster, Hyde Park and the surrounding areas before the Mehndi Raat began.

The Mehndi started with some Rasms blessings followed by traditional bhangra dancing with lots of energy and colour and it was a fantastic start to this beautifully international wedding.

UK Pre Wedding Photography London

A Central London Pre Wedding Photography Shoot

Ken and Claudia's London Pre Wedding shoot was an incredibly fun day and was the perfect start to spending a few days with this couple in London and the beautiful Peak District.

The couple had flown in from Hong Kong especially for their pre wedding shoot and we had spend many months planning the perfect itinerary both in London and the UK countryside. The shoot began at one of my favourite London pre wedding locations in Shad Thames near Tower Bridge and the historic street and surrounding area with cobbled streets and converted warehouses is a perfect location for engagement photographs.

We then spent the day walking along the Southbank stopping at lots of great spots including St Pauls Cathedral before ending up at Westminster to capture some pre wedding photographs around Big Ben, The London Eye and the River Thames.

Pre wedding shoots in London are always lots of fun and Ken and Claudia's energy and sense of humour made the whole day so enjoyable. Here are a few images from this London pre wedding shoot at Shad Thames, St Pauls and Westminster.

East Wintergarden Hindu Wedding Photography in Canary Wharf London

Hindu Wedding Photography at East Wintergarden in Canary Wharf

Vishal and Deepa’s Indian Hindu wedding and reception was an incredible day that took place at East Wintergarden in London’s Canary Wharf and followed their romantic civil wedding ceremony at Hever Castle.

The day began with Vishal’s Hindu Baraat which is one of the most energetic and fun traditions of a Hindu marriage and consists of the grooms procession where he is led to the venue by friends and family. Vishal had chosen to do this by horse and it was incredible to see a sea of colour and dancing in the centre of Canary Wharf.

The Hindu ceremony itself is always so colourful emotional and Deepa’s entrance was certainly both of these. Once on the Mandap, the ceremony continued with the exchange of garlands and many other Hindu rituals including walking round the fire and the 7 steps or vows that provide the foundation of Indian marriages.

After the ceremony we spent a little bit of time capturing some of the couples photographs around Canary Wharf before heading back to the Mandap for the Koda Kodi game where the couple fish for the ring as well as the emotional Vidai which is the bride’s goodbye to her family. The couple then retreated to their Canary Wharf hotel to get prepared for the evening wedding reception at the East Wintergarden.

The Indian wedding reception at Canary Wharf was just as colourful and energetic as the Baraat and there was a stunning first dance by the couple and performances from the talented Ashanti strings as well as some of the couples relatives. This was followed by lots of dancing until the early hours and was the perfect way to end this amazing Indian wedding.

Here are a few images from this Hindu wedding at East Wintergarden in Canary Wharf London.
