“Andy made us feel comfortable in our own skin...”

“Truly unforgettable; not really sure how words can ever describe how Andy has captured each and every moment in his photographs from our wedding. He made us feel comfortable in our own skin from the pre-wedding shoot up until the wedding day itself, always putting us first before everything else.

He truly enjoys photography and will always put in more than 100 percent. A friendly person and a joy to work with.
Thank you so much for our beautiful photos Andy, we cannot wait to start working on the album.”

Trupz & Sam

Wedding at the Hare Krishna Temple, Watford

Below is a selection of Hindu wedding photography from Trupz and Sam’s wedding at Bhaktivedanta Manor and their wedding reception at The Cavendish.

My coverage of Trupz and Sam’s wedding day started in Bhaktivedanta Manor, the UK home of the Hare Krishna movement. I photographed Trupz as she had her hair and makeup done before the wedding ceremony.

Trupz looked amazing in her Saree. Before the main wedding ceremony, I photographed Trupz and her parents during a prayer to Lord Ganesh to bless the ceremony.

I then photographed the groom’s arrival at Bhaktivedanta Manor. On arrival at the temple, Sam was greeted by the priest and bride’s mother and was presented with a clay pot which he was challenged to stand on and break. The action of breaking the pot symbolises that Sam would not allow any obstacle to come between him and his bride.

The Hindu ceremony was lovely. This was my second experience as a Hindu wedding photographer. I really enjoy photographing Hindu weddings as there is so much happening so there is lots to capture.

After the wedding ceremony, I took a few portraits of the newlyweds in the beautiful gardens before heading to The Cavendish in Eastcote for the wedding reception.

The Cavendish

On arrival at The Cavendish I took documentary style wedding photographs of guests chatting with each other and then took detail shots of the dining room.

The dining room was beautifully decorated. The centrepieces looked lovely. They were white lilies with peacock feathers set on slices of logs. Speeches were given by the bride’s brother, groom, and best man all three were lovely. Following the speeches, the guests enjoyed an Indian meal.

During the meal, one thing I often do is take the bouquet and wedding rings to take detail shots of them. I took detail shots of Trupz and Sam’s wedding rings on a reflective table at the Cavendish, positioning myself so I could also capture the reflection of a chandelier which was overhead. I love the resulting image of the rings; the background looks like a galaxy.

I had a great time photographing Trupz and Sam at both their wedding and their engagement shoot. They are a lovely couple and were an absolute pleasure to photograph. I’d like to wish them a long and happy married life together.

If you would like to see more photos of Trupz and Sam, you can view a blog post of their engagement shoot at Woburn Abbey, or below you can view their wedding slideshow, which is set to ‘Can’t Help Falling in Love’ by Elvis Presley which was the music of Trupz and Sam’s first dance. There is also a second slideshow that showcases all 655 photos that the couple received (not including extra black and white conversions) in 1 minute and 16 seconds!
