Anjalee and Suraj’s Hindu Wedding at Oshwal Centre

Anjalee and Suraj’s Hindu wedding took place at the beautiful Oshwal Centre in Potters bar and it was one of my favourite weddings from 2014. (Yes I say this about every wedding I photograph!)

Despite the rain, I had a lot of fun photographing Anjalee and Suraj’s special day, and the rain actually came to use which you’ll see below. What I especially loved about this wedding, was capturing the closeness of Anjalee and Suraj; the small little looks to each other, the massive smiles, the excitement in their eyes and the deep love for one another. I first saw this during the pre wedding shoot and it was great to see it again on the wedding day. The day began with the arrival of Suraj and his family and everyone was in great spirits! The day was full of fun and banter and I knew there would be some amazing moments to capture. The wedding ceremony was beautifully conducted by Raju Bhai Pandya accompanied by Shiv Gopal Music and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the ceremony. Soon after the wedding ceremony was over, it was time to get some amazing portraits on the grounds of Oshwal Centre, the temple grounds are amazing and walking through them, you’d think you’re in India, I would highly recommend checking it out!

Personally, I’ll do what ever I can to get an amazing portrait and you’ll see a reflection of Anjalee and Suraj in a puddle which came out great, the only problem was that half of my back was soaked as the water crept though my water proof jacket while taking the shot and by the weekend, I was ill! But it was worth it 🙂

As with all Hindu weddings, there was an emotional goodbye and a few tears which I still find hard to capture especially when you’ve got to know the families quite well. The Hindu wedding was now over and a week later, the Civil and Reception party took place. In a few weeks time, I’ll show the pics from that day and I cannot wait to show you them!

A massive thank you to both Adatia and Jethwa families who were extremely welcoming and it was fun getting to know you all, I’m sure I’ll see you all again soon.

Anjalee and Suraj, Thank you SO much for allowing me to capture your special moments, it’s been a pleasure getting to know you and your families and I hope that the moments captured bring back all of the emotions and memories from both days. Enjoy the moments!
