Wedding Photography at The Belfry Hotel, Sutton Colfield // Nik & Kerry

 

Nik and Kerry got married at The Belfry Hotel in Sutton Coldfield and my what a colourful wedding it was.  

Kerry got ready with her nearest and dearest at the hotel. She wore a beautiful pink and gold Indian outfit matched with gold Jimmy Choo shoes, while her bridesmaids wore navy and blush dresses. Once Kerry was ready, we were able to capture some portraits of our stunning Bride along with some family portraits. 
 
Kerry walked down the aisle with her father to meet her husband-to-be and the service began. 
 
Once the wedding ceremony was complete, the couple headed outside for group photographs with their nearest and dearest. This gave us a chance to get the group shots out the way so we could have some time with our couple to capture the two of them during the couple’s photoshoot. As the newlyweds decided they weren’t going to change outfits, we had enough time to make use of the venue grounds and headed over to the golf course for some images around the bridge and fields. Our team certainly do love getting on golf buggies! We headed back to the venue for more photographs indoors so that the couple had lots of variety.
 
Nik and Kerry made their grand entrance into the reception to cut their cake. After this they sat down at their top table ready for their speeches, which then lead on to them being invited onto the dance floor for their first dance as Husband and Wife. The dance floor opened and the guests joined them to celebrate their new married journey. 
 
Congratulations Nik and Kerry. We wish you all the very best. Thank you for choosing the Finishing Touch to be part of your day.

civil-wedding-photography-at-hilton-hotel

Rachna and Saif got married at Coventry’s Hilton Hotel in a lovely Civil Ceremony. Rachna wore a lovely long red Asian bridal outfit, while Saif opted for a suit. Before heading into their wedding ceremony, we took the lovely Husband and Wife-to-be to Caludon Castle Park for a photoshoot session. Here, we were able to capture the couple feeling relaxed and fresh before the busy day ahead of them. 

Once the photoshoot was done, the couple headed back to the venue, ready to share their vows. It was a beautifully effortless civil ceremony, great to capture!

The newlyweds had some formal photographs taken with their nearest and dearest before Saif went off to get changed for the sit-down meal. His 2nd outfit was a traditional Asian Grooms outfit and he looked like royalty. The couple made their grand entrance and headed for the stage where their Bride and Groom seats were. They had a few more family photographs before we swanned them off for a few more photographs around the grounds of Hilton Hotel, before they headed back into their reception ready for speeches to take place.

We had a lovely time capturing the wedding of Rachna and Saif. The Finishing Touch team wish you all the very best and thank you for making us part of your day.

Wedding Photography and Video at Park Hall Ramada // Michelle and Gopi

Gopi and Michelle got married in a lovely civil ceremony at Ramada Parkhall Hotel followed by their reception at the same venue. While Gopi got ready at home surrounded by his loved ones, Michelle got ready in the bridal suite of the venue with her nearest and dearest. Michelle wore a lovely lacey white wedding dress while her bridesmaids wore long blush pink dresses. 

While Michelle got ready, each of the bridesmaids received gifts and they returned the surprise by presenting Michelle with a little booklet of memories. The girls had all known each other from their days at school and were very close friends so this gift was both personal and meaningful to Michelle. How sweet! 

Michelle made her grand entrance with her father into the Orangery of Ramada Park Hall and the wedding ceremony began. The couple shared their vows and officially became husband and wife. After the ceremony, all guests went out into the grounds of the venue for canapés and champagne. The venue has a lovely grand sweeping staircase where we grouped the guests for a big group portrait and confetti shot before taking photographs of smaller groups with the couple. 

Gopi and Michelle had planned an outfit change so we managed to get some photographs of the couple before they headed up to their room to get changed. Once they got changed, they headed back downstairs to make their 2nd grand entrance of the day. Once Michelle and Gopi entered the Ballroom they cut their fabulous colourful cake designed to look like beautiful indian style cushions and then took to the dance floor for their first dance. The dance floor opened and our Newlyweds had their nearest and dearest join them on the dance floor to celebrate their beautiful day. 

It was such a pleasure capturing your special moments, thank you for choosing us to be part of your big day.

Wedding Photography at Ramada, Sutton Coldfield // Raj & Kiran

Raj and Kiran tied the knot in a lovely Civil wedding ceremony at the The Ramada Hotel in Sutton Coldfield, followed by a crazy party at the same venue. Kiran opted to get ready at home surrounded by her nearest and dearest. She wore a beautiful white strapless wedding dresses with a sweetheart neckline, complete with a white and blue bouquet. In the morning, we were able to capture some bridal shots before Kiran headed downstairs to have photographs taken with her family and loved ones. 

Raj also get ready at home with his family, before making his way to Kiran’s house to exchange the Jaimala, a flower garland. He wore a cadbury purple shirwani grooms outfit.  Once the garlands were exchanged, the couple made their way to their wedding ceremony in separate cars. We were left oggling at the Ferrari F1 Kiran had to escort her to the venue. Before the couple entered their wedding ceremony, we managed to sneak them away for a few couples photographs. We took them around the grounds of the hotel to capture some beautiful sunny Autumn photos. The colours of autumn added character to their photos.

The couple entered their wedding ceremony and began to exchange vows and rings.  Once the couple officially became Husband and Wife they headed outside to be greated by an explosion of confetti. The couple had the chance to mingle with guests while enjoying celebratory drinks, before they headed to their room to get changed. Kiran changed into a traditional Indian lengha in gold and red colours and had her overall hair and make-up transformed to a  glamorous evening look. Raj decided to wear a rather sophicticated 3 piece suit. 

While the couple got changed, our team had the opportunity to capture guests mingling, some group shots and the stunning reception party decor. I don’t think we’ve seen a cake so tall like the one Kiran and Raj opted for. The guests were seated and the couple made their grand entrance into the venue. They had a sax player walk them down the red carpet to their cake table. Once the couple finally cut their cake they stepped onto the dance floor to have their first dance as newlyweds. This opened up the dance floor for all their friends and family to join them and the party well and truly started. 

It was a wonderful, relaxed and seamless day! Thank you Raj and Kiran for choosing us to be part of your wedding day to capture your special moments
