An Asian Nikah Ceremony at The Upper House Barlaston, Staffordshire.
The night before the ceremony we had a big downfall of snow! We all woke up to a white world! Eek disaster I have a wedding to shoot! We set out early and were able to get to our destinations well on time, thank goodness. The bride looked stunning and we had such a warm welcome from the whole community. We were even invited to sit and dine with them, and we did! Well it would have been rude not to! :) Plus there was so much yummy food. There is no greater joy than photography and food.
Asian weddings are so colourful and full of detail. We had so much to photograph. I was very nervous about covering it seeing that was so different from any of the weddings I had photographed before. I am so glad the family chose me to cover the day, it was rich in culture and we met such lovely, humble, kind, generous people. I can only describe it as a privilege and that I hope to do more weddings like this in the future.
