Hindu Wedding Photography and Video at The Belfry Hotel // Alpesh & Nisha

We had a jam-packed day for Alpesh and Nisha’s wedding celebrations. The couple tied the knot in a Civil Ceremony followed by a traditional Hindu Wedding Ceremony and Reception, which all took place at The Belfry Hotel in Sutton Coldfield.

Nisha got ready in her hotel room, with the help of talented Jaineesha Make-Up and Hair Artist.  Nisha’s first outfit of the day was a stunning white wedding dress which she wore with her hair down with soft makeup for the civil ceremony. Once she was ready, she she made her way down to the foyer to surprise her husband- to- be in a “First Look” photoshoot followed by a couples photoshoot session and photographs of the couple with their close loved ones.

Once the couple exchanged their vows and became an official married couple, they walked back down the aisle together and were showered with confetti. We were given access to the roof of the ceremony room… Yes… THE ROOF! where we were able to look down onto the wedding guests to capture the big group shot.
 
Guests headed back inside to mingle, which gave our couple chance to sneak off to change into their traditional Indian wedding attire.  Our lovely bride wore a beautiful off-white, red and green outfit with matching jewellery. Jaineesha gave her a completely different look for the Indian ceremony . Once  ready, we captured a few shots of Nisha with her new look before leaving her to have a few quiet minutes to herself.
 
Meanwhile, Alpesh made his way to the wedding ceremony room. He’d  changed into a traditional Sherwani for the Hindu ceremony. It was a tad rainy during the day but this didn’t stop our Groom and his nearest and dearest having a little dance outside to the beat of the Dhol player drumming away.
 
Nisha entered the room and the Hindu ceremony began.  The couple had some photographs taken with guests on the stage before they both headed off to get changed one last time for their reception party whilst their Guests were entertained with champagne.
 
Once Alpesh and Nisha were ready for their reception, we took them out around the grounds of The Belfry to capture another couples photoshoot in their lovely 3rd outfits of the day. Luckily, the sun had come out just before sunset so we were able to capture beautifully lit photos outdoors with the hazy sun creating a stunning glow.
 
The newlyweds entered their reception dancing through a crowed of cheering guests. We love it when our couples own their entrance! They headed straight to the dance floor  to cut their wedding cake before sitting down at the top-table to hear speeches from their nearest and dearest.  The couple took centre stage for their first dance as Mr and Mrs. They surprised guests with a choreographed routine halfway through their first dance which was lovely to capture. This officially opened the dance floor for guests to join them and what a crazy party it was, full of energy and laughter and we had so much fun staying till the end.
 
We would like to wish the newlyweds a magical married journey and want to thank you for choosing us to be part of your special day.

Wedding Photography at Blakelands Country House // Zoe & Matt

wedding photography at the blakelands County House

Matt and Zoe tied the knot at the wonderful Blakeland’s Country House in a beautiful civil ceremony. Although it rained during the day, the weather certainly didn’t put a dampener on the couple’s wedding day. Zoe got ready at the venue with her nearest and dearest. She wore a beautiful white princess wedding dress while her bridesmaids work long navy gowns.

Zoe’s father proudly walked her down the aisle to begin her journey into married life. The ceremony began and the vows were exchanged. After the couple were officially married, they headed out of the ceremony into another room for mingling and canapés. They were congratulated by their guests before starting the formal guest portraits. As it was raining we chose a scenic room with enough daylight to capture the groups with the couple. Once the group formals were finished, the attention turned to Matt and Zoe in their couples photoshoot session. The rain still hadn’t stopped so we opted to do the shoot indoors in the many pockets of beauty Blakelands Country House had to offer.  This place oozed daylight! A photographers dream!

Our photographers were able to capture the beautiful rustic reception decor before anyone entered. Once guests were seated and the wedding breakfast was served, the speeches began. Both Zoe and Matts fathers and the couples friend gave speeches and Matt himself took to the mic to share his happiness and thanks to all the guests. The speeches were filled with laughter and joy to set the tone of this fun loving couple.

After the speeches the rained had eased up so we took the guests outside to get a big group shot of them all together with the couple for a confetti shot before they headed back in doors. We were able to capture more couples shots outdoors which gave us a variety of images for the couples album.

he couple made their grand entrance into the reception to cut their cake and then take to the dance floor for their very first dance as Mr and Mrs.

We really enjoyed photographing your beautiful rustic wedding and want to thank you for choosing us to capture your day.

Wedding Photography and Video at The Belfry Hotel // Pheobe & Sanj

Sanj and Phoebe were married in a lovely civil ceremony at The Belfry Hotel & Golf Resort in Sutton Coldfield. Phoebe got ready at The Belfry assisted by her very proud Mum and bridesmaids. She wore a stunning white dress, beautifully embellished from the waist up, both front and back, while her bridesmaids wore vibrant coral dresses. Phoebe personalised her Miss KG wedding shoes from Kurt Geiger with blue diamanté  “I Do” stickers on the soles! 

Once the couple shared their vows and said their “I Do’s” they headed to the grounds for a short photo session with family and friends, giving their guests a chance to congratulate the newly married couple on tying the knot. Once inside their reception hall guests were seated for the wedding breakfast and speeches. After speeches, we took Sanj and Phoebe around the grounds of The Belfry for their “Bride & Groom” photoshoot. The Belfry has a world famous golf course, a beautiful lake and attractive bridge that was the perfect setting for their photoshoot. Their transport was a golf buggy which made for some rather fun photo’s as can be seen below!

Once the couple returned to the venue they cut their lovely gold and white wedding cake before heading onto the dance floor for their first dance as Mr and Mrs. The music was provided by Perfect Soundz DJ’s. Sanj and Phoebe slipped away during their evening party to change into their traditional Asian party outfits. Sanj wore a lovely white sherwani with magenta piping to match Phoebe’s stunning magenta Indian Lengha, embellished with lots of sparkly diamanté. Just beautiful!! We snuck the couple away again for a quick  photoshoot in their new traditional outfits before they headed back onto the dance floor for their lively party!

We had such a great time at Sanj and Phoebe’s wedding at one of our favourite venues!! It was full of fun, laughter and love and we can’t thank the lovely newlyweds enough for choosing us to be part of their big day!
