But Rain = Rainbows!

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. Plus as soon as I saw the shot with the rainbow I was sold on the whole rainy-day photo shoot idea!

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!

Vibrant Tradition

Indian weddings always make me smile…it’s all the colour, the jewellery and the tradition of it all – I’m not completely anti-tradition you see! A friend of mine who got married a few months after me and had a traditional Indian wedding and our celebrations couldn’t have been more different! For starters their ceremonies go on for about 4 hours and the actually wedding celebrations last at least a week!

Thanks to Moe for sharing!

ps For those of you that have been asking, my photo shoot yesterday was very cool – it was probably the hottest day of the year and we were knackered afterwards but it was so much fun! I got to dress up like a punky pink princess on acid..I can’t wait to see and share the results!

A Fusion Of Colour

I am dying to go to an Indian wedding one day, all the colour and drama..I love it! So when I found this Indian/Mexican wedding I know it’d be a good one!  Both cultures bring such a sense of their own tradition to this wedding, from the Bride’s awesome custom dress (Namrita had a piece of her Mother’s gold and fuchsia wedding sari sown into the side of her one-of-a-kind gown) to the Mexican-inspired wrought-iron canopy over the dance floor.
This is a truly unique wedding and I love it!

Namrita’s dress was designed and customised by Renella De Fina and the wedding was coordinated by Oh How Charming.

All The Colours Of India

Amber Hughes is a photographer from Canada who sent me the link to her website yesterday.  I had a quick browse and there was no question in my mind that I had to share this beautiful day after session. 

I would love to go to an Indian wedding – the colours are just so dramatic and the clothes – just wow, check out the amazing detail of that dress.

The use of the sourrounding architecture in these images is just so impressive and sticking, it really punctuates the photographs don’t you think?

Thanks for sending these my way Amber – I love them!
