Now that I’ve recovered from last Saturday’s marathon Indian wedding ceremony (part 1 and 2) and celebrations (yes there was more than one wedding and more than one ceremony, but I’ll save that story for another blog post!) at Ragley Hall, who are well know as a top class Indian wedding venue, it was nice to receive the following message from the Bride and Groom, before they jetted off on their honeymoon.

‘Hi Clive
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to you for Saturday. You are a true professional and you had so much patience with us and our crazy guests! Thanks for capturing the whole day – we can’t wait to see the pictures.
I know that it is a big task to cover an Indian wedding – especially when there are three events in one day – but you worked so hard and just really made it all work for us!
The day was perfect, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for helping us and capturing all the shots so effortlessly.
Lots of love, and best wishes,
Manisha & Sunny xxx’

The day was so fun packed with differing colours and events, I felt like a kid in a sweet shop with a host of imagery to capture. This meant I now have many images I’d love to share with you all, but for now I’ll only share one I came across while quickly downloading and backing up the wedding.indian-wedding-ragley-hall-01

UPDATE: It’s now 3 weeks after their wedding and, prior to sending out their wedding USB, I’ve just sent them a link to see all their wedding images and a highlight slideshow. This was Manisha’s quick reply on the way to work:

“Hi Clive,
Wow. The images are beautiful on the slide show. I can’t wait to see the rest of them! Mum and Dad had tears in their eyes just now! 
I’m just on my way to London for work this weekend, but I’ll take a look and start choosing the set for the album as soon as I’m back!
Amazing work. So glad that we had you as our photographer !”

What Is a Documentary Wedding Photographer?

This is an often asked question. In simple terms it means being an observer and recorder of your wedding, with little interference. If you’re familiar with Star Trek, think of it in terms of The Temporal Prime Directive: To visit, to watch, not to interfer and to bring back a record.
