Nina and Branav’s wedding day at Sopwell House, St Albans

Nina and Branav’s wedding was my first wedding of the year and what a perfect start to the season!

Nina and Branav had a traditional South Indian Hindu Wedding ceremony, followed by their civil ceremony, and then an awesome party to end the night off at Sopwell House in St Albums. Despite the cold bitter weather outside, everyone was in great spirits and I really enjoyed photographing the day.

South Indian wedding ceremonies are always fun to document, there are so many intricate details and rituals that take happen, accompanied by traditional music, lots of coconut cracking, flowers galore and even outfit changes.

I love how the day unfolded and these are some of my favourite moments from the day which I’m sure you’re going to love viewing.

Nina and Branav, thank you so much for choosing me to document your wedding, you guys are an incredible couple and I wish you all the happiness in the world!

Enjoy the moments below 🙂
