Rohini & Greg: Kelham Hall Hindu Wedding

Wow, what a wedding! From the exquisite bridal details right through to an awesome night’s partying. Rohini and Greg chose two professional photographers to cover their day (as is sometimes the custom for larger ethnic and Asian weddings), and as the other photographer was focused on the groom’s party and natural guest photography, it was Mirror Imaging’s privilege to capture the day as it unfolded, with particular emphasis on the bride Rohini, her family and the bridal preparations. It was a real joy to share this time with the family, even though I caught serious shoe envy over Ro’s gold Louboutin heels.

I always knew I wanted to capture Rohini’s bridal portrait in the gold drawing room of their venue, Kelham Hall, and I’d envisaged this particular image in my mind’s eye before the big day. The richness of the fabric and gold embroidery of her dress together with her ornate Mehendi hand art all looked incredible with the guilded walls as a backdrop. These striking, elegant portraits of Ro are amongst my favourite photographs of the day, if not the whole year.

The Hindu wedding ceremony was full of meaningful symbolism. Each ritual represented the bond and equality between the couple, and I loved the messages woven into this part of the day. After a gorgeous appearance from Boris the dog, the cake cutting, speeches and a huge Indian feast, came the dancing. Although we were nearly twelve hours into photographing the day, I was swept along with the party atmosphere and a brilliant DJ set by Ravi at Krystal Group, dancing away on the stage photographing the crowd with their hands in the air.  What a fantastic, uplifting end to the night.

Thank you to Susan for your assistance, being my second eyes, ears and hands and for your unwavering support. 

These are Mirror Imaging Photography’s highlights, I honestly struggled to select my favourites, as there were so many I love! I hope you enjoy looking through them.
