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!

Wedding Photography at Park Hall Ramada // Michelle and Gopi

wedding-photography-park-hall-wolverhampton

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 Hilton Hotel, Coventry // Rachna & Saif

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 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

Wedding Photography and Video at Coombe Abbey // Jenny & Matthew

We had the pleasure of photographing and filming the wedding of Jennifer and Matthew at beautiful  Coombe Abbey in Coventry.  This wedding was full of surprises. We LOVE surprises! Jen got ready at her parent’s house along with her bridesmaids. She was surprised when given a gift from Matt, which had everyone in tears! Jen wore an elegant white Enzoani wedding gown with a bespoke veil from “Sew Chic by Helen” and her bridesmaids wore lovely long dresses in a duck-egg blue colour from “Wedding Belles of Four Oaks”.  The girls hair was styled by the incredible Nat from Bridal Hair Specialists and make-up was by Aleksandra at Guz Makeup Artist. Jen’s bespoke hair piece, which was beautifully crafted to match her dress was made by by http://www.melancholymagpie.com/ Once the Bride and her girls were ready we took them out into the garden of her parents lovely home for some photographs.

Matt opted to get ready at Coombe Abbey with his father and close relatives. This pair were such a great match as Jen had surprised Matt with a gift and card too! Once our lovely groom was ready we took him and his groomsmen around the grounds of the venue for some photographs of them all looking sharp in their suits before they headed into the ceremony room to await Jen’s arrival.

Jen’s Dad proudly walked her down the aisle and the couple began their wedding ceremony. Once the couple’s “I Do’s” were official, they headed outside for their group photo’s whilst their guests mingled and were treated to champagne and canapés. Once the group shots were completed, we snuck Jenny and Matt away for a “Newly Wed’s” photoshoot session around the stunning Coombe Abbey grounds. 

Coombe Abbey has a beautiful grand marquee which was where Jen & Matt hosted their wedding breakfast and reception party. The marquee was beautifully decorated with gorgeous floral arrangements from http://www.pumpkinevents.co.uk/ Once they had made their grand entrance, the couple sat down for speeches and a meal catered by Five Rivers, who also provided the canapés. Such yummy food! They also had a traditional ice cream cart on site provided by Lee’s Ice Dreams. Luckily, our notorious English weather was sunny and perfect for ice-cream.

Jen and Matt changed their clothes into traditional Indian outfits after their meal. The bride wore a stunning pink and gold lengha while Matt opted to wear a black suit with a pink waist jacket to match Jen’s outfit. Simply stunning! When they entered the party they headed straight for their beautiful white and gold blush cake http://celebration-cakes.co.uk/ for their cake cutting ceremony. This lead onto their first dance before being entertained as traditional Punjabi folk dancers dancers http://www.nachdasansaar.com/ took centre stage. The dance group got the Bride and Groom involved with part of the dance routine. What Jenny didn’t know was that Matt had practised a short routine in secret with the dance group so when Jen returned to her seat to watch the dancers, Matt stayed and danced away in sync with the group! Jen’s jaw hit the floor, she was so surprised. Once the party had quietened down a little, we took Jen and Matt outside to capture some lovely photographs of the newlyweds in their beautiful Indian party outfits. We loved every moment of Jen and Matt’s beautiful wedding ceremony and reception party! It was fun, vibrant and full of surprises. Thank you for making The Finishing Touch team part of your special day.”
