It’s sometimes easy as a wedding photographer to become slightly complacent and take for granted just how much of a privilege it is to even be present at someone else’s wedding. You’re privy to some very intimate moments, and sometimes you see something which just really just makes you stop and absorb what’s going on around you.
I was lucky enough to be involved in Matt & Roshni’s big day at 11 Cavendish Square in London earlier this year alongside the very talented, and super awesome James Gifford-Mead. They had such an amazing day consisting of LOTS of dancing (some good, some great, and some slightly questionable!), an awesome drummer, 2 ceremonies (one Hindu ceremony, one Civil ceremony), and some of the funniest & most heartfelt speeches I’ve heard at a wedding to date.
It’s tradition at a Hindu wedding ceremony for the Groom’s view of the Bride’s entrance to be hidden, resulting in a big reveal just before the ceremony begins. Of course, this makes for some lovely reaction shots, but going through the edit I was drawn to the sequence of images below. I’m not sure I’ve seen two people more in love than Matt & Roshni, and I really think you can tell from the look on his face:
It never ceases to amaze me just how great this job is.
Your thoughts and comments welcome as always – will be sharing more from the day soon.
