Wedding Photography and Video at The Great Barn // Simon and Ingrid

On the 14th July 2017 Simon and Ingrid held their marriage ceremony at The Great Barn in Banbury.  Ingrid got ready at the barn, supported by her mother and best friend, with the talented Lucy Beesley MUA. In her beautiful wedding gown from Love Bridal, holding her trailing bouquet of white flowers, by Hibiscus Floral Design, Ingrid stood before us as a gorgeous, glowing bride.

Played in by her Step-Dad’s guitar trio The McAlleys, Ingrid gracefully walked  with a beaming smile to meet Simon at the end of the aisle.

After vows were shared and tears were shed, the newly wed couple were whisked away on the ground’s buggy for their photoshoot. Our photographer captured some beautiful shots through the lush greenery and over the lilly-pad carpeted lake.

Simon and Ingrid then returned to mingle with friends and family, enjoying the delicious canopies the barn had to offer. Once the ceremony room had been transformed into beautifully decorated dining quarters, thanks to Yellow Star Designs, guests were invited to their seats for the couple’s grand entrance as husband and wife.

Like a theatre encall, the most enthusiastic round of applause that the Finishing Touch team have ever heard accompanied Simon and Ingrid into the wedding breakfast.

Heartfelt and hilarious speeches then followed, leaving the guests in tears and stitches. Provided by Kearney’s Catering, a grand three course meal was presented and guests awed over the lovely wedding cake from Marks & Spencers.

Before the sun set, the team brought the happy couple out into the corn fields for an atmospheric photo shoot, capturing the golden sun amidst the golden grains.

With a live band Blue Juice Simon and Ingrid had their first dance and were quickly joined by friends and family who certainly knew how to bogey.

Everything came into place perfectly for this wedding celebration and we are so grateful to have captured such a wonderful day.

Hindu Wedding Photography and Video at Loughborough Grammar School // Hiten & Pooja

Hiten and Pooja married in Spring 2017 in a grand Hindu Wedding at Loughborough Grammar School, which was very fitting for their love of Harry Potter!

When Pooja arrived to the venue we were able to sneak her away to capture some lovely bridal portraits. She wore a stunning traditional red and green bridal sari with matching accessories. Hiten and his guests arrived to the venue and the celebratory precession began with lots of dancing and singing along to dhol players. It was sure to be a lively and colourful wedding.
Hiten made his entrance into the venue to begin the first part of the ceremony. Pooja then made her entrance and walked down the aisle. The Hindu ceremony began, the couple made their vows and took their 7 steps into marriage.
Once the wedding ceremony had finished, guests made their way to grab some lunch while we took the couple away for some newly-wed portraits around the stunning grammar school grounds. It was a sunny afternoon and the blossom made for perfect Spring photographs. As the couple had planned for their reception party to be the following day, we had plenty of time to capture some beautiful footage and photographs.
Once Hiten and Pooja had a little time to unwind and have some lunch it was time to say goodbye to their guests in a traditional Vidaai ceremony. Guests lined up while the Bride and Groom did their rounds of bidding farewell.
The day, the couple headed to Domain Plaza in West Bromwich to celebrate their new married life. They had an awesome Marvel/Harry Potter novelty wedding cake and a huge “Mr & Mrs” light up display. Before the guests arrived we captured couple portraits around the inside of the venue. Pooja wore a navy blue indian party dress while Hiten opted for a navy suit to match his lovely wife. The guests entered the reception and the couple made their grand entrance to kick start their celebrations.  They evening included a dance act by 3 younger guests and a jazz musical act by Pooja’s brother’s band.
It was a fantastic lively party, we had so much fun capturing it. Congratulations once again Hiten and Pooja. Thank you for choosing the Finishing Touch to be part of your day!
