Dubrovnik Palace Hotel Destination Wedding Photography Croatia

Destination Wedding Photography at the Dubrovnik Palace Hotel in Croatia

Rob and Sara’s Destination wedding at the Dubrovnik Palace Hotel in Dubrovnik, Croatia couldn’t have been a more perfect weekend and I couldn’t have asked for a nicer couple to work with.

Originally from the UK, Rob and Sara are now based in Australia and I had the pleasure of photographing one of Sara’s best friends weddings before Sara got in touch regarding the destination wedding that they were planning in Croatia.

Over 100 guests flew over to the beautiful Dubrovnik to celebrate with the couple and the wedding venue was an incredible location for a stunning wedding that was filled with laughter, tears and lots of dancing.

The day began with Sara getting ready at Dubrovnik Palace while Rob enjoyed a few poolside drinks with his friends at their hotel before heading over to the Dubrovnik Palace Hotel to watch the football before the wedding ceremony.

The ceremony setting was one of the most amazing locations I had ever seen with the wedding taking place on the rocks looking out over the Adriatic Sea before guests were let up onto the balcony for a drinks reception with stunning views as things were set up for a sunset reception meal.

Despite the threat of rain and a beautiful rainbow, we were treated to an unbelievable sunset which gave us the chance to capture some romantic sunset wedding photographs before speeches and dancing went well into the night.

Here are a few images from this lovely destination wedding at the Dubrovnik Palace Hotel in Croatia

Seychelles Destination Indian Wedding Event Photography

Destination Wedding Event Photography in the Seychelles

The final event of Mayur and Nikkita’s destination wedding celebrations in the Seychelles was an amazing Indian celebration at the NCS Hall in Victoria, Seychelles and was a wonderful way to end this amazing set of wedding events.

The celebrations followed a stunning destination wedding event at the Constance Ephélia Resort and destination pre wedding photography shoot in the Seychelles with the newly weds.

Over 1500 guests attended and the evening was filled with great food, live music and lots of dancing. The event was put together again by the lovely Zeenia from Xenia and it was such a pleasure to work with Mayur and Nikkita’s friends and family who were so welcoming to me throughout their wedding events.

A special mention must go to Mayur father who lives in the Seychelles and really made sure that I was looked after on the island.

Here are a few images from this destination Indian wedding celebration at the KP Hall in the Seychelles. You can also take a look at their beautiful Hindu wedding at the Potters Bar Oshwal Centre in Hertfordshire here.

Destination Wedding Photography at Hemisfèric in Valencia

A Destination Sikh Wedding Reception at Hemisfèric City of Arts in Valencia Spain

The main event for Mandev and Sasha’s beautiful Sikh wedding took place in Spain at the breathtaking Hemisfèric in the City of Arts and Science, Valencia and what an amazing way it was to finish so many beautiful events.

This lovely couples wedding week started off in London and Buckinghamshire and consisted of an outdoor civil wedding at the Dairy in Waddesdon Manor, a Mehndi and Sangeet at the Montcalm in Marble Arch in London and a Sikh wedding at the Sri Guru Singh Sabha in Southall London as well as a few other events and a destination pre wedding shoot in Valencia which made up a perfect week.

The best was definitely saved until last and the couple along with hundreds of their friends and families travelled over to Valencia to the City of Arts and one of the most spectacular venues I have ever seen in L’Hemisferic.

Destination wedding planner Karishma Manwani had put together all of the events so well and pulled out all of the stops to create a truly spectacular wedding reception. One of the highlights of the reception was a first dance choreographed by Raji Dattani that took place out on a deck that had been created over the water and a surprise fireworks display that kicked of during the dance which created a pretty epic backdrop and it was a memorable way to kick off the evening party that went on into the early hours.

Mandev and Sasha are blessed to be surrounded by so many great people and it was so nice to tell their story over all of the different events.

Videography was provided by the talented David Garcia at Zenith Cinematography who has just been honoured with the Wedding Industry Awards ‘UK Videographer of the Year’. It’s always great to work with David and you can check out his beautiful video from Mandev and Sasha’s wedding week here: Destination wedding videography in Valencia

Orchard Hotel Wedding Photography Singapore

Singapore Wedding Photography at Orchard Hotel

After working with Zhi and Ivana for their pre wedding photography in the Cotswolds I was honoured when they asked me to fly over to Singapore for their wedding celebrations at the Orchard Hotel.

I have been lucky enough to photograph weddings and pre wedding photography in Singapore before and it is definitely one of my favourite cities in the world and I was excited to return there again to tell the story of Zhi and Ivana’s wedding day the Orchard Hotel.

The day began early with Ivana’s bridal preparations taking place at the Orchard Hotel before Zhi and his entourage arrived for the Singapore gatecrash ceremony and fetch the bride. The grooms gatecrash is a traditional and fun start to many weddings in Singapore and involves the groom completing a number of fun, humiliating and rather painful tasks to prove that he is worthy enough of gaining access to the bride. 

It is the bridesmaids task to devise all of the tests that the groom must take and Ivana’s bridesmaids were particularly cruel! Poor Zhi and the groomsmen were required to eat some incredibly spicy concoctions, spoonfuls of the cinnamon and some unmentionable drinks as well as solving complex maths problems. Only when all of these tasks were successfully completed was Zhi granted access to the bridal suite.

The wedding celebrations continued with a traditional tea ceremonies that took place at Zhi’s parents house before the entire bridal party made their way to Marina Barrage for some photographs with the bride and groom as well as the bridal party. Marina Barrage offers some of the most spectacular views over Marina Bay, Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands Hotel and was the perfect location for the bride and groom wedding photographs.

We then headed back to the hotel for the tea ceremonies with the bride's family and this was followed by the most incredible banquet at the Orchard Hotel.

Here are a few photographs from this international wedding in Singapore at the Orchard Hotel. You can also view a Singapore wedding at the Alkaff Mansion here as well as a pre-wedding photography shoot at Marina Bay.

Dubai Desert Bedouin Mehndi and Sangeet Wedding Photography

Hindu Mehndi and Sangeet Photography in Dubai

Nimesh and Rakhee's destination Mehndi and Sangeet in Dubai took place in the most amazing desert location and included camels, 4x4 jeeps and the most incredible dancing!

After an unbelievable first few days in Dubai that included a stunning destination pre wedding photography shoot in the Dubai Desert, there was no chance that this wedding was going to drop the pace and the evening before the main Indian wedding at the Palm Sofitel in Dubai was just as adventurous and guests met in the private library of the Sofitel Hotel and Resort in Palm Jumeirah before being whisked away by private transportation into the Dubai desert.

We watched an amazing sunset as we travelled further out of the city centre and gradually the city lights disappeared into the distance and the landscape became more open as we arrived close to our desert location. As the last remains of the sun disappeared below the horizon we were transferred into 4x4 jeeps for the last stage of the journey that took us deep into the desert dunes before arriving at our own private bedouin camp.

Guests were greeted in true Arabian style and the setup for the camp was incredible. This included Bedouin men serving Arabic coffee and dates, camel rides, sheesha-smoking and henna painting. As the bridal mehndi began, guests were treated to a whole evening of entertainment in the desert which included a Tanura dance show, belly dancing and mehfil singing. This was followed by the sangeet and some incredible performances by family members before DJ H and Kudos Music took over and the party really got started.

The whole event was put together by the talented Karishma Manwani and was executed perfectly. Here are a few images from this Dubai desert destination Mehndi and Sangeet in the United Arab Emirates. You can check out the civil wedding ceremony at Newland Manor here.
