Hindu Wedding Photography at Alrewas Hayes
After having such a good time with Shital and Jay on their pre-wedding shoot, we were looking forward to the main Hindu wedding at Alrewas Hayes in Staffordshire.
We knew there would be plenty of fun & laughter. And we weren’t wrong. We even got to see a soppy romantic side to Jay during his speech. I think I saw a tear in his eye when he was telling everyone how he knew Shital was the one for him. I don’t think he wanted this to be public knowledge though. He likes to be seen as a ‘manly’ man. :-)
And boy did we have to persuade them both to hand over their wedding rings so we can take a shot of them. They were so reluctant because they were very expensive rings and didn’t want to risk losing them.
After a lengthy, 3 minute, negotiation, we reassured them that we’ll guard them with our lives! As we always do. We finally got the shot and, me being me, wanted to come back and tell them that we lost Shital’s ring. But luckily Shital was hard to find among the dancing crowd, which gave me enough time to realise that it would’ve been cruel. I didn’t want to make her cry on her wedding day after all. Instead, I found Jay and showed him the shot. And judging by how hard he hugged me and seeing the cheesiest grin I’ve ever seen on a man, I think I can safely assume that he liked it.
With beautiful weather, great family, guests and of course a wonderful couple, it was an awesome day from start to finish.
We also want to take this opportunity to thank Prakash & Bhavesh, a father & son team who run Samsara Studio, for their professionalism and cooperation on the day. You guys rock and we look forward to working with you again soon.
Here are a few images from the day. Hope you enjoy them.
