Sikh Wedding Photography and Video at Dunchurch Park // Arron & Jagdeep

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.

Wedding Photography and Video at Hilton Hotel, Coventry // Rachna & Saif

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 Prestwold Hall // Katie & Chris

wedding-photography-at-prestwold-hall

What a dream Christopher and Katie’s wedding was for our Finishing Touch photographers. We first met the couple when they had an engagement shoot, which gave them a feel for being in front of the camera. Their wedding day itself was a very relaxed and a dead on time wedding, which is a rarity but we loved it after such a busy August. The couple married in a lovely civil wedding ceremony at Prestwold Hall  in Loughborough, a venue we are visiting more and more throughout the years. Katie got ready with her bridesmaids and mother over in Prestwold Hall’s bridal suite. She opted for a classic and elegant look with the talented, award winning Makeup Artist Rochelle O’Brien glamming her up. 

Katie wanted to do a “First Look” with Chris, so we had a little fun teasing the couple by making them hold hands from behind a door, and then telling Chris to leave the room… Oh the suspense! It was all worth it though, as the big “first look” reveal lead to Chris getting teary at seeing his stunning Bride appear. After the first look photo session, we took the couple off to have further photographs around the beautiful grounds of the venue before any guests arrived. The interactions between the couple were so natural, they barely needed any direction. 

Katie was given away by her lovely Father, while the wonderfully talented Bow Belles String Quartet played the perfect song for Katie to walk down the aisle to. 

After the couple exchanged their vows and officially became Mr and Mrs, they headed to the venue’s gardens to mingle and indulge in celebratory drinks and canapoes. This gave our photographers the chance to gather all of the guests for a big group shot before capturing smaller groups with the newlyweds. Guests were later seated for the wedding breakfast, which was again very relaxed and intimate. While the DJ set up, guests had a chance to mingle again, and the bar officially opened. Evening guests arrived and got ready to put their best dance moves to the test. We captured a few more photographs with the couple before they opened the dance floor. The opted to not have a first dance for just the two of them, but instead wanted all of their loved ones to have their first celebratory dance as a group, which was a beautiful idea. 

Thank you Katie and Christopher for having us be part of your special day. We had so much fun capturing your day.
