Shilpa & Priyesh’s Hindu Wedding at Manor of Groves

I have to say, I had a blast photographing Shilpa and Priyesh’s Hindu wedding events, from the moment we met we hit it off, I got on so well with them, that they decided to buy their 1st home right around the corner from me so we could all go for yummy pasta in Casa Mia and dessert at Twist every week (Just kidding)! Shilpa and Priyesh are a very fun couple and I knew the wedding events were going to be a good reflection of their good, fun hearted nature…bring it on!

For their Hindu wedding day I went out a bought a pair of Hawaiian socks to wear, I have to admit I almost didn’t wear them, but I promised Shilpa that I would wear them, plus it was in the contract! On the morning of the wedding day Shilpa looked down at my feet to check I was wearing them and smiled…gotta keep the bride happy right? Oh, and they were a bit hit on the wedding day!

The Hindu wedding took place at The Manor of Groves and the ceremony was beautifully conducted by Raju Bhai Joshi and there were alot of fun moments during the ceremony especially when Priyesh place a mirror infront of himself so as the anterpath was removed Shilpa saw herself! The reaction was hilarious (See below). Priyesh did manage to sit down before Shilpa did after the Pheras but she got her own back during the Koda Kodi games, even though Priyesh was trying to cheat (Sorry Bro!)

Throughout each wedding event, everyone was so welcoming and I really felt like one of the friends during my time with the Shah’s and Patel’s, I just about remember which ones are Masi’s and Mami’s on Shilpa’s side. I have to admit, I was quite sad when the reception party was over as I really enjoyed my time with everyone and in true Indian style, it took me 30mins to say goodbye! From all of the event, some amazing moments have been captured but there were WAY too many pictures to show, but below are a few of the moment captured from the Hindu Wedding day.

Shilpa & Priyesh, my new neighbours and newly extended family! I cannot wait to show you the full set of images from each wedding event, I wish you all the very best for the future 🙂
