Wedding Photography at Grand Station Wolverhampton // Leanne & Kwok

Kwok and Leanne married at Grand Station Banqueting Suite in Wolverhampton. Leanne got ready at home and Kwok headed to the venue to finish off his last preparations, where two of our team were waiting to capture Kwok and his family arriving. 
 
The couple had a civil ceremony followed by a hindu ceremony within Grand Central. For the civil ceremony, Leanne wore a lovely 2 piece outfit. The top was a silver and blush sequin blouse with a blush pink skirt to compliment the blush and white flowers and the bridesmaids’ pink blush dresses. Ravita Pannu created the 2 very different, beautiful makeup and hair looks. 
 
After the civil ceremony the couple had a traditional Chinese tea ceremony, where Kwok’s family give the couple gifts and share herbal tea. Once the couple were officially married, they had a few family photographs outside the venue and a break where a small breakfast was served. This allowed Kwok and Leanne some time to get changed for the traditional Hindu wedding. 
 
For the Hindu wedding, Leanne wore a stunning traditional indian wedding lengha, which was mainly red but full of vibrant blues and oranges. Kwok wore a traditional indian wedding sherwani in blues, yellows and gold detailing. Once the wedding finished, the couple and their guests head back to the foyer area where there was a drinks reception, canapés and a little Photo Booth set up. We had the opportunity to float around and capture guests mingling as well as take some shots of the decor and details within the reception hall.
 
The couple made their entrance straight to the cake table, where they had photographs with friends and family feeding them cake. Starters came out, which lead to the could sitting down for speeches. Both Kwok and his best man gave heartfelt and funny speeches. After speeches the couple stepped onto the dance floor to take their first dance as husband and wife. They danced to Coldplay’s Magic and the dance floor soon opened for ally he guests to join them. 
 
Thank you for having us be part of your day Kwok and Leanne. We wish you a wonderful married life.

Hindu Wedding Photography at Loughborough Grammar School // Hiten & Pooja

Hiten and Pooja married in Spring 2017 in a grand Hindu Wedding at Loughborough Grammar School, which was very fitting for their love of Harry Potter!

 
When Pooja arrived to the venue we were able to sneak her away to capture some lovely bridal portraits. She wore a stunning traditional red and green bridal sari with matching accessories. Hiten and his guests arrived to the venue and the celebratory precession began with lots of dancing and singing along to dhol players. It was sure to be a lively and colourful wedding. 
 
Hiten made his entrance into the venue to begin the first part of the ceremony. Pooja then made her entrance and walked down the aisle. The Hindu ceremony began, the couple made their vows and took their 7 steps into marriage.
 
Once the wedding ceremony had finished, guests made their way to grab some lunch while we took the couple away for some newly-wed portraits around the stunning grammar school grounds. It was a sunny afternoon and the blossom made for perfect Spring photographs. As the couple had planned for their reception party to be the following day, we had plenty of time to capture some beautiful footage and photographs. 
 
Once Hiten and Pooja had a little time to unwind and have some lunch it was time to say goodbye to their guests in a traditional Vidaai ceremony. Guests lined up while the Bride and Groom did their rounds of bidding farewell. 
 
The day, the couple headed to Domain Plaza in West Bromwich to celebrate their new married life. They had an awesome Marvel/Harry Potter novelty wedding cake and a huge “Mr & Mrs” light up display. Before the guests arrived we captured couple portraits around the inside of the venue. Pooja wore a navy blue indian party dress while Hiten opted for a navy suit to match his lovely wife. The guests entered the reception and the couple made their grand entrance to kick start their celebrations.  They evening included a dance act by 3 younger guests and a jazz musical act by Pooja’s brother’s band. 
 
It was a fantastic lively party, we had so much fun capturing it. Congratulations once again Hiten and Pooja. Thank you for choosing the Finishing Touch to be part of your day!

Hindu Wedding Photography & Video at Pittville Pumps // Bal & Rakhee

We had a wonderful time capturing Bal and Rakhee’s wedding recently. They hired The Finishing Touch for both photography and videography coverage of their grand Hindu Wedding, which was held at the Pittville Pump Room  over in Cheltenham. Rakhee got ready at her parents home in Gloucester, where we were able to capture stunning morning preparation shots, along with some family photographs before she left for the wedding venue. Bal opted to get ready at the scenic and beautiful Balcarras Farm Cottages, which is located in Cheltenham. 

Once Rakhee made her entrance into her wedding, we could see from the couple’s smiles and interactions with each other that they were two best friends, who found love with one another that lead them to this milestone day. You adorable pair!!

There was so much potential around the ground for a lovely couples photoshoot, so after the wedding ceremony, we were able to take the Bal and Rakhee outside for a quick photoshoot session. The newly weds then got changed into their evening outfits ready for their reception. Before making their grand entrance as Husband and Wife, we took a few snaps of them again outside their venue. This led into their grand entrance, where Bal and Rakhee danced and giggled their way through the crowd of guests. We love it when couples show their personalities comfortably, to a room full of people sharing their happy moments together. 

Throughout the couple’s wedding, not only did their love for one another beam, but their friendship and playful interactions left such a fun buzz throughout their special day. To end the night, we took Bal and Rakhee outside one last time to capture the couple outside the Pittville Pump Room. The venue was beautifully lit up up in the dark, which gave us the perfect end to their wedding day story. 

We can’t thank you enough Bal and Rakhee, for choosing us to share your story of love and friendship.
