Anishka & Kesh’s Civil Ceremony in the Heart of London

I’ve covered hundred’s of weddings over the years but never one in a museum, especially a London museum. In this case the Museum of the Order of St John in London.

This was to be the second of 5 events staged for Anishka and Kesh’s week-long Indian wedding. The first event had taken place on Sunday with the Chunderi and Garba dancing. An all-day event at the Watford Colosseum. There must have been 500 guests or more! They had a very colourful Chunderi ceremony followed by a lunch feast of delicious Indian food. Garba dancing took up the afternoon’s events. At the Museum it was all very different and much more like a traditional English wedding. After the civil ceremony, drinks and food were brought out.

Week of events

Later in the week, I was to cover The Mehendi and Sangeet evening. An evening when Anishka and her friends painted their bodies with Henna paint. On Saturday they had the main attraction at Highclere Castle with the Hindu wedding ceremony and finally, on Sunday they had a big wedding reception party at Micklefield hall. What a week! Very demanding but fantastic fun!

I’m so pleased Anishka and Kesh chose me as their wedding photographer. I’d like to thank them and their family and friends for being so kind and making me so welcome.

I’m not your average wedding photographer. My style is very natural, relaxed, fun and creative. It was Cartier Bresson, who coined the phrase, ‘The decisive moment’ Well I like to capture a number of decisive moments and make a story of your wedding day that is unique to you.
