Shalma & Leo’s 1950’s Inspired Candy Anthony Wedding
November 18, 2010
Shalma & Leo are what I like to call friends of the blog. Not only did they find photographer David McNeil though a feature on Rock n Roll Bride, but I featured their gorgous A Bout de Souffle engagement session over the summer ANDmyself and the bride have exchanged regular emails ever since they got engaged about all things wedding! So when David asked if I wanted to feature them ...well he didn't have to ask twice!
Rotterdam Rock n Roll
August 13, 2010
I love these guys! Normen & Priya are from Holland and had their engagement shoot in Rotterdam with Tapas Maiti. This is just pure Rock n Roll and the couple have got a GREAT story. "I met Priya at the Asian Wedding Exhibition last November" Tapas told me. "It was an hour to go before closing and I was about pack up when she came to my stall and we got chatting. Priya & Norman are from Holland, her mother was a Hindu who arrived in Holland via Surinam whilst her father is a Sikh from the Punjab. Many Indian Hindu's have settled in Holland by way of Surinam through the Dutch Indian Empire, its a fascinating story and shows the complexity of the Indian diaspora."
Tamanna & Tanveer’s Muslim Wedding Celebration
June 15, 2010
You don't see enough Asian weddings in blog land which surprises me really as they are so colourful and full of love that one would think they were perfect blogging material. Luckily for me, photographer Tapas Maiti, who specialises in these weddings, send me this gorgeous Muslim wedding last week. I have a couple of Indian friends and I am always intrigued to hear about their epic wedding celebrations and how different they are to the western wedding. They are all about colour, family and fun!

Gorgeous Indian brides and weddings certainly don't get enough coverage in Blogland - which is crazy because the colours, the fun and the unique traditions are certainly things that blogs usually swoon over. I have a couple of Indian friends - one that is already married and one that has been to a lot of her family's weddings and I'm always intrigued to hear about them. My favourite story was that one of my friends had to walk around the ceremony carrying a pineapple on her head and when she asked her Mum why she had to do it or what it was about she replied "that's just what we do" Ha!To this day she still doesn't know the significance of the pineapple that messed up her hair!

I've featured Indian weddings before, mainly because I am crazy-obsessed with bright colours and who does it better?! However with this wedding I am infatuated with a different side - the personal touches, the uncomplicated feeling and the desaturated colours used to photograph all that beautiful henna.
Oh and yes, there's a lot of photos here..so sue me!
Thanks to Kyrani for sharing these with

But Rain = Rainbows!
July 14, 2009
One thing you can always count on in England is the rain...it will always come when you don't want it too. In some circles rain on your wedding day is considered the worst thing that could ever happen but it others it is seen to be a sign on good luck and prosperity for the marriage to come. I am likely to think myself that neither her of these are true and as long as you still get some damn good photographs it's all good!
Asian weddings are full of tradition, colour (the Bride traditionally wears red) and are always an absolutely massive party (I have a friend at work who got married a few months after us and she had about 350 people at her wedding!) They also go on for about a week, with all the celebrations climaxing with a ceremony that lasts for many hours.
Thanks to Craig & Chanelle Segerius Bruce for sharing..and I am very excited because I am actually doing a photo shoot with the guys tomorrow!
