The final wedding I shot with Samir in 2015, was the amazing Sikh wedding of Gurpreet & Suresh. The itinerary was actually spread over two days, with ceremonies and celebrations in Bedford, Gravesend, Ilford and Canary Wharf.
Once upon a time, I took a few snaps of my friends’ baby girl as she splashed around in a plastic bathtub while her mum bathed her. The baby girl grew up to be a beautiful woman and, twenty-two years later, I found myself in the quite amazing situation of being the photographer of her wedding!
One of the advantages of being a wedding photographer is I get to shoot some amazing locations. Sam and I had a lot of fun at Foxhills Country Club a few weeks ago, so I was really excited to be asked to work at another beautiful venue, Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire.
On a bright sunny day in the middle of August, I was delighted to be the assistant photographer at the wedding of Roopa & Keval. Their Indian wedding ceremony and reception event was held at The Grove – a five-star hotel with spa set in 300 acres of Hertfordshire countryside.
What better way to kick off the 2015 wedding photography season than on a gloriously sunny day at Foxhills Country Club in Surrey. Sam and I had already spent a really fun day on Nishan & Nitisha’s pre-wedding shoot at Durdle Door on the Suffolk coast in April, so I was delighted to be invited back to help Sam photograph their civil wedding and reception.
One Friday in April, I got a call from Sam (Samir Arun Photography) asking me whether I’d like to assist him on a pre-wedding location shoot at picturesque spot he’d found on the Dorset coast. I wasn’t doing anything in particular that weekend and it sounded fun (I’d not done a pre-wedding shoot with Sam before), so agreed to help out.
