I last photographed Jak and Jay at their civil wedding service at The Town Hall, Leicester back in May this year. Six months later, on the 1st November they celebrated their love again through a Hindu ceremony, this time at the splendid Kelham Hall, Nottingham.

I arrived at her family home early morning to be met by a house full of activity. On this occasion not only did we have the excitement of a bride getting ready for her big day but added into this mix was a film crew from the BBC’s ‘One Show’. Five minutes of fame on your wedding day . . . wowsers! In a sweeping display of red, gold and adorned with jewels, Jay made for a beautiful bride. Jak had travelled from his hometown of Bradford that morning and received a lively, noisy and colourful welcome as he stepped out of the car to be greeted by Jay’s mum leading the congregation! Tradition and rituals were in abundance throughout the day making for some spectacular imagery. One of the most intense and enjoyable parts of a Hindu ceremony for me is the brides entrance to the ceremony room.  This wedding was no exception with Jak’s view shielded by fabric as Jay walk down the main aisle with golden winter light flooding through the spectacular windows behind her. After the ceremony, we walked around the grounds of this stunning venue. As the winter light dipped, we had just about enough time to create some blissful images of the two of them in all their happiness.

The Bride and Groom’s transformation from day to evening was effortless; traditional Indian dress to glam sophisticated evening wear. Wow! Looking equally as amazing. The night progressed into a lively party atmosphere, commencing with a first dance under an explosion of silver confetti. Guests couldn’t wait to get onto the dance floor and bop to the latest Bollywood music.

An amazing day filled with such vibrancy, colour and excitement. You both looked so happy together and we wish you a very wonderful future. xx”
