I met Tinu and Kesh over a coffee last year to discuss the possibility of me shooting their Northbrook Park wedding, in Surrey. As a London wedding photographer I must confess I do enjoy escaping the big smoke and getting out to amazing venues like Northbrook Park, so I was delighted they decided to book me! Earlier this summer we met at The Royal Landscape just outside London for a pre-wedding shoot on a glorious sunny day. I decided to shoot a roll of film that day as well and you can see the results here.
Roll on the big day and I started photographing Tinu’s bridal preparation nice and early. I was chuffed to capture one of my favourite bridal preparation images yet – I will let you have a go at guessing which one below!
As usual time flies on a wedding day and soon enough it was time for the civil ceremony, which was a nice intimate affair for which Tinu wore the first of her stunning outfits and Kesh looked very dapper in his suit! After the short ceremony we popped outside onto the lawn for some group shots before it was time for a spot of lunch and to change for the Hindu ceremony. The weather had been threatening in the run up to the wedding and I am very pleased that they stood firm and opted for an outdoor Hindu ceremony as it looked spectacular and it’s always nicer being outside than inside when possible.
Kesh made his way from one of the lovely apartments to the outdoor ceremony area accompanied by a Dohl drummer and loads of family and friends dancing – what an atmosphere and this is one of the many reasons I love shooting Asian weddings. Then the ceremony commenced and Tinu made her entrance a short while later, looking stunning in her second outfit of the day. After the ceremony we had the traditional games and Kesh having to barter to get his shoes back – very entertaining!
The weather was starting to close in at this point so we quickly nipped off for a brief couple shoot. Then the rain came and everyone made their way inside the Orangery for the reception. Tinu and Kesh made their entrance a little while later in their final outfits for the day, looking amazing. After some fun and touching speeches, and of course after a good old feast, there was lots of dancing and partying into the night.
That wrapped up a thoroughly fun and enjoyable day for me with a fabulous couple. If you are getting married at Northbrook Park and would like to discuss you requirements in further detail, please contact me for a chat.
