I recently had the great pleasure of photographing Anandi and Kumaran’s Hindu wedding at the Thistle Hotel near Heathrow in London. I really enjoy Indian wedding photography as there is so much going on all day, fantastic colours and loads of people. I photographed their civil wedding last year at The Ritz Hotel in central London, so it was great to see everyone again and of course this time there were many, many more people in attendance! This was certianly one of the longer weddings I have ever photographed but time absolutely flew from the 7:30am start until finishing up just before midnight.
Kumaran arrived a short while later and to the sounds of beating drums made his way into the ceremony hall for the first part of the Hindu ceremony. Later Anandi joined and throughout there was such a great atmosphere, with everyone having a fine time. After the ceremony, the happy couple then greeted all of the guests followed by a delicious lunch. Then it was on to some cuople portraits before a bit of a breather, when everyone either chilled out or went to get ready for the evening reception. I just love the outfits that were on show and most people changed into another outfit for the evening reception.
Thank you once again to both families for the very warm welcome and hospitality I enjoyed all day long. It was thoroughly enjoyable for me to photograph and many congratulations once again to the absolutely lovely couple!
If you are getting married at the Thistle Hotel, please contact me to discuss your photography requirements.
