There is so much to adore about Mangala & Alex’s beautiful Blenheim Palace wedding. The fusion of cultures with touches of India set against the majestic backdrop of a British landmark. The 180 guests that joined the couple in celebration, filling the day with so many moments of joy and laughter. The atmosphere on Mangala and Alex wedding, which was unforgettable and utterly romantic. Above all the perfect union between the couple themselves. From the first day we met Mangala & Alex it was clear how in sync they were with each other. They seem to intuitively know what each other wants and compliment each other perfectly. Their wedding brought together elements to reflect them both individually yet the day was a complete expression of their relationship and love for each other. We invite you to take a look at some of favourite photographs, moments and details from the day; it is hard not to be moved by the happiness and beauty throughout their wedding.
To accommodate all their 180 guests the fantastic team at Blenheim Palace organized the ceremony and reception to be held in the Orangery, which gave a beautiful light filled space in which Mangala & Alex could exchange their vows.
The Bride seeing her husband to be for the first time and being given away by her father are such emotion-filled and beautiful moments to capture. They encapsulate the memories of the ceremony that Mangala & Alex can relive every time they look at these photographs.
Mangala and Alex braved the icy wind for some beautiful photographs in the Palace grounds. Huge respect goes to Mangala for going out in the cold in her wedding dress without even a thought and well done to Alex for keeping her warm throughout! Here are a selection of some our personal favourites taken of this gorgeous couple after the ceremony before they rejoined their guests for cocktails and canapés.
The Orangery was changed around for the wedding breakfast and as always looked absolutely breathtaking as the daylight faded and the atmosphere inside was transformed for the evening. A sitar musician played sounds of faraway India and together with 180 guests having a magnificent time the ambience was enthralling.
Having a second portrait session as the light changed from afternoon to evening provided a wonderful opportunity for some beautiful fine art wedding portraits. It was also lovely for Mangala and Alex to share a few private moments together.
Mangala & Alex had joined in dance lessons leading up to the wedding, which led to a fabulous swing routine for an unforgettable first dance. Mangala also had a second wedding dress just for the evening celebrations but before they hit the dance floor we could not resist taking some photographs of her in such a stunning second dress.
Our warmest congratulations go to Mangala & Alex, we loved being part of your day and wish you all the happiness for an exciting new chapter together as husband & wife.
