Sikh Wedding Photography and Video at Park Hall, Woverhampton // Pav & Dilraj

Dilraj and Pav had a beautiful Sikh wedding ceremony at Guru Nanak Gurdwara in Willenhall. Pav got ready at her family home in Wolverhampton and was surrounded by her loved ones from near and far. She wore beautiful detailed Indian bridal outfit with a bright orange dupatta to add a bit of summery contrast. Once Pav was ready, we took formal photographs with her main family in front of her lovely home, before she set off on her way to the Gurdwara.  Dilraj also got ready at his family home in Telford with his nearest and dearest. He wore a traditional Indian Groom’s outfit, a champagne gold sherwani. 

The couple met in the darbar sahib to officially become husband and wife. Once their Sikh wedding ceremony had finished, we took the couple outside of the Gurdwara to capture some couples photos before they headed off to get changed. The couple chose the beautiful Ramada Park Hall Hotel to hold their reception party in. We had some of our team head to the venue to capture details of the decor and grounds before the guests started to arrive. Pav changed into a beautiful golden Indian gown for the reception while Dilraj put on a 3 piece suit. While guests mingled and waited for the couple, the renowned Gabhru Punjab De bhangra dancers. The couple had a quick photoshoot in they new outfits before they entered to cut their cake.

Pav’s sisters made an emotional yet funny speech along with Dilraj’s best friends and Dilraj himself. This lead onto their first dance, which we LOVED as it was choreographed and made for a beautiful capture. The dance floor opened and the celebrations began. These guys know how to party! After a long evening of celebrations, Dilraj surprised Pav with a vintage car for them both to leave in. Pav and Dilraj continued with the traditional Doli and Paniwaarna ceremonies before the night ended. 

Pav and Dilraj, you make a lovely couple and we are so thankful you chose The Finishing Touch team to capture your special moments.

Sikh Wedding Photography and Video at Stratford Manor // Harjinder and Nav

Harjinder and Nav got married in a religious sikh wedding ceremony at Leamington Spa Gurdwara. The couple both get ready at their respective family homes with their loved ones. We were able to capture some family photographs while the couple were surrounded with their loved along with some portrait shots of both Bride and Groom in their homes.
It decided to rain in the morning, so once all the guests got to the Gurdwara, the milni (exchange of garlands) was held inside the foyer before Harjinder made his entrance into the wedding ceremony, later followed by our lovely bride Nav. The registry wedding took place first before the traditional sikh ceremony began. Once the 4 laavan were complete, guests had the opportunity to give a gift of money and congratulate the couple.  The couple then had a few portraits shot in the ceremony room before entering the langhar hall (food hall) to have a sit down meal, followed by the goodbye ceremony, where the brides family wishes her farewell before she starts her new married journey.

The couple had their reception party at Stratford Manor, in Leamington Spa. The sun finally came out so we were able to take the couple around the grounds to have a lovely couples photoshoot. Harjinder wore a 3 piece suit while Nav chose a lovely blue lengha with pink details for her 2nd outfit. As guests arrived and got seated, the couple made their grand entrance into the venue and headed for the cake table. The venue was decorated with light tones and peach details. Harjinder and Nav had an entourage of dancing loved ones follow them in during their grand entrance. This was going to be a pretty crazy party! Once the couple cut their cake, they took a breather by heading to their top-table and tucking into their starters.[/spoiler]

The newlyweds stepped onto the dance floor for their first dance to celebrate their new journey. The DJ invited everyone onto the dance floor to join the couple once the first dance had finished and the party well and truly began. To finish off the night we took the couple to have some final creative images taken. We had such a blast being part of your day Harjinder and Nav. Thank you for choosing us to capture your special moments.

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.
