Hindu & Chinese Wedding Photography at Grand Station// 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.

Wedding Photography and Video at Birmingham City Council House // Lee & Kam

Lee and Kam had a lovely civil ceremony at The Council House in Birmingham followed by an evening reception at the Saffron Centre  Kam got ready at her parents home while Lee got ready at the couples lovely home, both in Birmingham. Lee wore a tailored suit with a bespoke tag sewn into his inside pocket, which had his name and the date of his wedding written. We love personal touches!
Once Kam arrived, we managed to get a few images and footage of her entering the grand staircase before the ceremony began. A Pianist provided music while Kam and her lovely father made their way down the aisle. Once the wedding ceremony was complete guests headed to the back of the room where there was a display of cakes, snacks, teas and coffees. Guests mingled while the pianist continued to provide background music. We may have also helped ourselves to a cheeky coffee and cake.
Lee and Kam had booked a lovely bedroom and lounge suite at the Hyatt Hotel nearby the Council House. This gave us a chance to take some couple portrays of the newlyweds before their closest guests arrived for a meal. We hung around to capture some of the guests mingling before we left Kam, Lee and their guests to it.
As the reception party was in the evening, we had a chance to have a lengthy break and recharge ourselves as well as our batteries before we made or way to the Saffron Centre. The team split so that 2 members went to cover the venue decor and 2 members went over to Lee and Kam’s room at the Hyatt to capture images of them in their 2nd outfits.
The couple made their entrance into the reception hall, lead by a talented Saxophone player. The headed straight to the cake table on the dance floor to cut their wedding cake. Once they fed each other cake and got some photographs with their loved ones, they surprised all the guests with a choreographed ballroom-bhangra dance fusion. A perfect way to get the dance floor open for all their guests to join them in their celebrations.
Congratulations Lee and Kam. We are delighted to have been part of your wedding journey. Thank you for having us.
