Being part of a journey with a couple is one of the joys of our vocation. We partake in the build up to a wedding day, with an engagement session and planning meetings. Then there is the big day itself with all the emotion and excitement. Afterwards we continue the experience by sharing a lasting record of the experience through the memories we’ve captured and the album we produce for our clients that will be passed down as part of their family legacy. It is an epic journey.
Our journey with Emma and Vinny however surpassed all the scales. When we first met them we knew their celebrations were going to be amazing. They were not only marking the joining of two hearts but the union of two cultures and families. As it turned out we photographed not one, not even two, but three of their wedding days! Each occasion was remarkable and completely distinct. The first wedding we documented was their very intimate civil ceremony at the historical Bristol registry office. Their second big day we photographed, was their Sri Lankan Hindu wedding at the Oshwal Centre in Potters Bar London.
It was such a privilege for us to document Emma and Vinny’s traditional Hindu ceremony. We extend a huge thanks to Vinny’s mother who prepared us for our first Sri Lankan Hindu ceremony by giving us a meticulous timeline describing all the traditions that would unfold. I will never forget the atmosphere and excitement of the day. Surrounded by their relatives we felt encompassed by their joy and welcomed to document the day. We are delighted to share some of the resulting photographs on this blog post. Next we’ll be sharing Emma and Vinny’s equally beautiful wedding reception at Blenheim Palace and day three of their wonderful wedding celebrations.
