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.
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!
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.
