Riti & Jessal’s Hindu Wedding at Parklands, Quendon Hall

So while the summer wedding season is still in full flow and I’ve been fortunate to have photographed some amazing weddings this year.

Riti and Jessal’s wedding is one I’d like to showcase today. It was a sunny day, set in the beautiful surroundings of Parklands Quendon Hall based in Essex. The marquee was looking fab as expected, there was a nice calm in the air before all the fun and madness of the wedding begun. I started my day spending way too long photographing the venue and all of the little things that Riti and Jessal had put an effort into choosing. Soon after, I went to photograph Riti getting ready, she has laid out all her jewellery, hung her wedding outfit all ready for me to photograph, which was a nice thought 🙂 Dil (as usual) did a fab job in making Riti look amazing on her special day although I do wish he kept the Marge Simpson hair do on Riti, oh yeah, and Jessal scrubbed up well too!

Jessal and his entourage came in full force dancing down the drive way and I witnessed some interesting dance moves from the groom himself! After a superb entrance, the Hindu wedding ceremony took place with friends and family and it was day full filled with laughter, joy, smiles, love (of course) and a very emotional goodbye as the day drew to a close. I feel honoured to have photographed Riti and Jessal’s big day and now, for your viewing pleasure, below are some of the moments captured.

Riti and Jessal, I wish you both all the best for the future and may the moments captured bring back all of the memories from your most special day 🙂
