Ann called over the Easter weekend to ask me if I was able to capture a really small wedding ceremony in June... "How small?" I asked her. "Twelve guests" she replied. Amazing. That sounded extremely civilised, and at Langar Hall too, I knew this was going to be a lovely occasion. Ann and Kanji, or Ken who he likes to be called are the most wonderful couple, and totally in love with each other. I love a good fusion wedding, no matter how big or small. It proves once again that love has no boundaries and I couldn't have been happier to be part of their wedding day.
With the wedding being a small affair, I captured photos from late morning until dinner. From when the guests arrived at Langar Hall, we had an hour or so to mingle before the ceremony which was held in Langar's Garden Room. Ann was in a stunning purple Indian dress when everyone arrived then chaged for the ceremony. It's traditional at some Indian weddings for the groom to offer gifts to his wife, and it's not uncommon to offer gold necklaces and other jewellery. True to this tradition and even though this was technically a civil ceremony Ann was overwhelmed with Ken's gifts. This jewellery being kept in the family for many years.
After the ceremony we had a few group shots and some with Ann and Ken together too. This is by far the most intimate wedding I've been asked to capture, and it was lovely.
Take a look at a few favourites from the day.
