Meera and Christopher’s Hindu wedding at Shendish Manor was my final day of a multi-day Indian wedding. I was also hired to photograph the couple’s civil ceremony at St Albans Register Office followed by a reception at Aldwickbury Golf Club and Meera’s Pithi Ceremony.
My coverage for the day began with Meera as she had her bridal makeup done in Shendish Manor’s Bridal Suite.
The Hindu wedding ceremony took place in the Apsley Suite. The Apsley Suite was beautifully decorated with the Mandap the main focal point.
I love photographing Hindu weddings as there is so many details and rituals in the ceremony to capture.
After the ceremony The Mandap was used as the backdrop for group photos. There was a long list of shots that been requested by the bride and groom so I worked through these as quickly as possible with the help of Toastmaster Jango who was a fantastic aid and really helped that portion of the day go as smoothly as possible.
After the group shots I took the bride and groom for a walk around the grounds to capture wedding day portraits of them.
In the afternoon guests enjoyed a drinks reception in the garden. It was a lovely sunny afternoon so perfect for the reception. Guests were entertained by a magician who performed a range of close up magic to small groups.
The evenings celebrations were started with the cutting of the cake which lead to the first dance and then a packed dance floor. THis was followed by speeches and then more dancing.
It was an absolute pleasure photographing Meera and Christopher and their families throughout their multi day wedding.
