Sabita and Arasu – Pre Wed Engagement Shoot in London

Things have been a little quiet on here recently as Lavinia and I have been manically putting the final touches to our own wedding…. 67 days to go, I’ve been told! BUT we do have the forthcoming pleasure of shooting Sabita and Arasu’s wedding this summer – Arasu is Allie’s brother – we shot her and Akilan’s wedding and Pre Wed last year!

Sabita and Arasu wanted to include some of their favourite spots in London, so we started off around the City and spent a fun couple of hours roaming the area, taking in St. Pauls and the South Bank. We were blessed with a rare dry day but these guys were stars for putting up with the cold – it has to warm up soon, right??

Enjoy the pics… can’t wait for the wedding!

Sukanya and Andrew – Scottish Wedding, London UK Asian Wedding Photographer

Hey guys!

Sooo we’ve been SUPER excited to bring you this blog, and even thought it’s past 1am this IS going out tonight!! Lavinia and I had the genuine pleasure of capturing Sukanya and Andrew’s Hindu Wedding in London earlier this year. Come August, it was time for the return leg in Andrew’s home country, held at the beautiful Auchendennan House just outside Loch Lomond, Scotland. Although Auchendennan House is run as a youth hostel during the week, don’t let this term fool you – the venue is a gorgeous country house with fantastic grounds and details a plenty inside – including a stuffed deer’s head pride of place in the main ceremony room!

Sukanya is a long-time friend, so it was great to see her and Andrew’s family staying on site and enjoying the celebrations which started the night before. The wedding day itself started with the Civil Ceremony, leading into a drinks reception and photos outside where we were blessed with a break in the weather and basked in some sunshine! A sumptuous meal, including Haggis (which we had to pass on) and a very lovely Cranachan dessert (double helpings to make up for it), was followed by a traditional ceilidh with folk music, singing and dancing.

Sukanya and Andrew are both incredibly fun, generous and loving – and this could be seen and felt by all the guests who were lucky enough to be present. Andrew’s speech had everyone in stitches at various points, and we had a fab time being part of their day. A selection of some pics below (few more than usual!) as well as a movie slideshow at the end. As always, your comments and sharing is appreciated!

Much love to you both!

Freda and Andy – Engagement Lifestyle Session in Richmond Park and St Pauls, London

Hey everyone!

Long time no post, the next week is ALL about catching up with some overdue blogging!

Wedding season has started to die down now although we still have a few more events before the year is out which we are looking forward to. Back in July, we were lucky enough to spend half a day with the gorgeous Freda and very charming Andy! Andy is a colleague of Lavinia’s and got in touch with us wanting an engagement/lifestyle session with his bride-to-be. The happy couple have just tied the knot in Hong Kong (congrats guys!!!!) and wanted to share some images from their life in London with their families at the wedding abroad. We did the shoot, selected the photos, edited, designed and printed the album, all just in time before their flight out! 🙂

On the day of the shoot itself, we started off in the Richmond area where we were lucky with some fantastic natural light in the park and along the river. Later on in the evening we travelled into Central London towards St. Pauls and managed to capture some more dramatic portraits – these are some of my favs!! Each time Freda looked stunning in her choice of outfits…. and Andy scrubbed up well too of course!

Anyway, enough talking… introducing the happy couple!

Calypso drummers set the beat, the sun was blissfully shining on us and with little tagine pot favours and baklava for dessert, we could have been in Morocco itself!
