So 2017 was the year of weddings for me, I shot more than I've ever shot before in a year! We try to take between 10-12 wedding bookings a year, in order to give us enough time to balance our other corporate and portrait work, but this year we shot a massive 19! This was partly down to meeting some incredible and inspiring couples that I just couldn't say no to, and also some very last minute bookings that happened to fall on dates that I was free. Here's some of my favourite wedding and engagement shots from 2017.
We were lucky enough to be asked to shoot a wedding in the Czech Republic early this year with a wonderfully expressive and extroverted couple. The wedding was very traditional and intimate, and there were lots of Czech customs that were so vastly different from the Asian weddings I'm used to shooting.
Nieran and Dina were such a fun couple to work with that we ended up doing a second engagement shoot! There are so many photos I could include from their wedding and engagement shoot that this post could very quickly become just about them so here's a few of my favourites from the 2 pre-wedding photoshoots.
We took Raj and Roshni to London for a pre-wedding shoot, a place that they regularly enjoy visiting for meals and nights out. I'd known Raj for a while prior to being asked to shoot his wedding so it was especially nice to be asked to capture their big day! They had a lovely civil ceremony at Leicester Town Hall and a fun filled reception at 'The Candle Rooms', also in Leicester (It was particularly nice not to have to travel too far to shoot their wedding!)
There's so much more I could share here so at the risk of this becoming too long here's the final one. Gitanjali and Paras were a lovely couple, also local to Leicestershire. We shot their mendhi party at Hinckley Island Hotel (with their very own cocktails), their religious wedding at the Gurdwara and their civil and reception at Stapleford Park, a wonderful venue with tons of photo opportunities!
I couldn't include all the weddings/engagement shoots from this year here, just a few of my favourites. Getting married in 2018? Congratulations! Be sure to check out our packages here or get in touch for a chat over coffee and we can talk about your plans for the big day!
