Wedding Photography and Video at Alrewas Hayes // Nav & Jenna

They tied the knot at the beautiful Alrewas Hayes in Burton-On-Trent. Nav and Jenna spent 10 years together and their journey as Husband and Wife began on a sunny day in May 2016. 
 
Jenna got ready at Wychnor Country Club along with her Bridesmaids and Mother. She chose a beautiful, fitted fishtail wedding dress with a slight blush tone. It was laced with white details and a classic long veil, while her bridesmaids wore blush pink tones. Jenna’s Make Up Artist Kerry Bains finished off her look with a soft and subtle makeup look.  Nav got ready at his parents’ home in Coventry along with his Groomsmen. They all wore fitted grey suites with blush tone details to match the Bridal party. 
 
When Jenna arrived at Alrewas Hayes, her Father was overwhelmed at seeing his stunning daughter as a Bride and couldn’t hold back the tears. Tissues at the ready for the Finishing Touch team!
 
The couple exchanged their vows in The Gallery suite during an intimate civil ceremony, followed by their wedding breakfast in the lakeside marquee. 
 
After the newlyweds had their couple’s photoshoot, Jenna and Nav headed off to their Bridal Suite to have a rest and get changed for their evening reception party. Jenna changed into a stunning red Indian Bridal outfit while Nav put on a dark 3 piece suit with a red tie and pocket square details to match Jenna’s outfit. The talented Kerry Bains came back to change Jenna’s make up to compliment her outfit with a gold smokey eye and nude lip. 
 
The couple had their big fat Indian reception party in the bigger marquee on the Alrewas Hayes grounds. They chose a gold theme with beautiful huge centre pieces created by the decor company Mahir’s Expereince The beautiful couple shared a 2nd dance together before their guests joined them on the dance floor. The Finishing Touch couldn’t have had a more perfect day with Nav, Jenna and their lovely welcoming families. We are truly grateful for being chosen to film and photograph your special 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.

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 Dunchurch Park

Arron and Jag were married at Leamington Spa Gurdwara and held their Reception at the lovely Dunchurch Park Hotel, who have a marquee in their grounds for larger weddings. 

Jag got ready at home in Leamington Spa, surrounded by her loved ones and wore a stunning traditional Indian bridal lengha in a classic red colour. Arron also got ready at his home, in Wolverhampton, where we were able to capture some atmospheric portraits of him before he set off to the Gurdwara. He wore a red and gold sherwani from Unique in Wolverhampton. With all the morning traditions of a punjabi wedding complete, Arron got into his wedding car while friends and family danced on the streets in celebration. We could tell this was going to be a super joyous occasion! 

After the wedding ceremony the couple had some portraits captured while guests mingled and found their seats in the lovely marquee. Arron went and changed for the Reception party and the lovely newly weds made their grand entrance. They headed onto the dance floor where there cake was waiting to be cut. The couple went on to have their first dance after they cut their cake and the dance floor truly did open for guests. It  got busy very quickly, these folks know how to party for sure! 

While guests sat down for their main course we took Arron and Jag out around the grounds of Dunchurch Park to have more couple portraits done. in front of the camera and We managed to take the couple all the way to the lake to get a a variation of different shots before they headed back onto the dance floor to continue with their party. 

Jag left the party early to go back home and await her new husband to arrive, pay her girls to enter her family home and then collect her to take her to her new married journey with him. Once the Doli ceremony finished, the team headed to Arron’s home in Wolverhampton to capture the final parts of the day. Again, friends and family danced in the streets outside of Arron’s home to start the “paaniwarna ceremony”. Arron and Jag entered the house and played post wedding games to welcome Jag into their family. The night ended on a happy high and we felt very welcomed into both families for the wedding weekend. 

We truly hope you had a fantastic day and can’t thank you enough for choosing us to capture your special moments. All the best from the Finishing Touch Team.
