Bhaktivedanta Manor Wedding Photographer

I had the wonderful privilege of photographing Sagar and Prina’s Hindu wedding at the well known Bhaktivedanta Manor in Hertfordshire.

They are an amazing couple who wanted a Hindu wedding with a documentary flair. The brief was to capture very natural moments but still capturing the essence of their culture. I loved the challenge as this was my very first Hindu wedding going solo. Just me no second photographer or videographer. A massive responsibility but what an absolute privilege!!

Two days of capturing their pre-wedding moments at home and their stunning wedding ceremony at Bhaktivedanta Manor as well as the London Irish Centre in Camden.

My day started meeting Sagar at his family home for morning prayers and blessings with close friends and family. His mum made the most exquisite delicacies for the ceremony in honour of Ganesh. The morning finished on a high with Sagar being bathed in turmeric paste!! “Tumeric is the answer to a glowing complexion” I was told by one of his aunties.

I then joined the very beautiful Prina at her home capturing final wedding prep and memorable family photos in their lovely garden.

Off to Bhaktivedanta Manor……

I loved capturing all their guests arriving in glorious colour – being South African I loved all the vibrancy.

Prina walked down the red carpet in style with her father and brother on either side. She looked so stylish in her stunning off-white dress!!!

Prina joined Sagar in the mandap for the civil ceremony followed by their beautiful Hindu ceremony. The day was filled with a real family atmosphere. Sagar was so blessed to have his lovely grandmother attending as well as family from India.

Their day concluded with party games at Sagar’s parents’ home. The last beautiful image I captured was Prina’s red footprints entering!! Just Perfect.

On Saturday, they hosted a spectacular wedding reception party at The London Irish Centre for all their guests. Sagar’s mum made a towering fruit display with meticulous detail !! I loved every minute of their party as the dance floor was filled to the brim at all times. I often squeeze in and work my way to the centre of the action to capture all the fun.

They had a wonderful time of celebration, speeches, delicious food and dancing the night away to a super talented band!!

I am forever grateful that they put their trust in me to capture their moments.

Kind words when I delivered their gallery………

“WOW – we just looked at the photos and we absolutely love them! You managed to capture all the best bits of our wedding and we are truly grateful. Thank you so much, we can’t wait to have a photo session with our nearest and dearest.”
