Couldn’t be more appropriate for us to be sat in the blazing British sunshine writing this blog post. What a lovely run of warm weather we are having and the May Bank Holiday was no exception. On the Sunday of that beautiful weekend we headed over to capture the first part of Nimesh and Heena’s wedding celebrations and their English civil ceremony at Bordesley Park, Redditch. This quaint wedding venue set amongst rolling countryside couldn’t have been a more perfect setting for a summers day.
Everything always looks better in the sun but Heena and Nimesh would’ve looked fab regardless. Heena in a Donna Lee bridal dress with the most delicate lace piped around the neckline and Carvela pink shoes and Nimesh donning a personalised suit with bow tie and chain. It was clear that family are extremely important to both of them and this really shone through in the speeches. Nimesh’s brother as best man and Heena’s siblings started the speeches off together in style!
The fact that Bride and Groom were willing and up for taking their shoes off to hit the trampoline for a shoot says a lot!. The spirit that these two lovely souls approached their day with, supplemented by everybody around them, was so gorgeous to see. We loved all the the attention to detail and personalised elements to their day, and we’re not just talking paper decorations! The “My Girl” song that Heena walked down the aisle to, tears during the ceremony, the choir singing their hearts out, topped off by Heena’s sister joining them to sing her and Heena’s favourite “them” song. Brilliant. Photographing in the evening, just as the sun was setting, allowed us to create some magic. From nowhere, Nimesh whips out a ‘To do list’ created on one of their first dates and I got chance to witness them ticking off the last thing written on the list . . . To get married!
We don’t need to ask if you had the best day ever, you’d planned for it, perfected it and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it . . . absolutely so clear to see. You nailed it Mr & Mrs Chauhan. Thanks so much for having us there, we can’t wait for part two in July, your Indian ceremony, and the continued celebrations. xx
