Guest Appearance

As I wasn't booked for a wedding this weekend I decided to accept a long standing invitation from my friend and fellow wedding photographer, Klarke Caplin, to tag along on one of her weddings.

I was fortunate because this week Klarke was booked to photograph a large Sikh wedding in West London and I had never covered this kind of ceremony before.

As you can see, bridal outfits were very colourful with both the Bride and Groom wearing costumes with the traditional scarlet theme.

As with many religions, men and women must cover their heads once in the temple of worship. Sikh men use a triangle of material which is tied at the back of the head rather like a bandana. On some this can look quite cool, on others....

Thanks to Klarke for capturing this photograph of me looking like a stalker.

Wedding at Hotel du Vin - Winchester

Sara and Alex decided to host their marriage ceremony and wedding reception at Hotel du Vin in Winchester.
As Sara prepared in the Tattinger Suite, Alex was welcoming their guests in the Champagne Bar downstairs.
Alex had sent his Bride to be several gifts including a pot of Champagne Marmite!

Sara's stylish dress was made by Ellis Bridals and was beautifully trimmed with Champagne coloured ribbon and bows.

There were just 25 guests invited to the wedding and it helped to create an intimate atmosphere in the Abbey Well suite where the ceremony, and later that evening, the Wedding Breakfast were held.

The bridal bouquet and the flower arrangents were created by local florist Flowers by Caroline and the delicious looking cakes, which comprised of a large Lemon Chiffon Cake complimented by a collection of little Magic Cakes, came from the London patisserie, Konditor & Cook.

The happy couple are now off to honeymoon in California for 3 weeks.

Regular readers of the blog will remember the wedding of Patricia and Andreas who, along with their guests came all the way from Madrid to get married in London.

The article features six of my photographs from the wedding and there is also another image from the day on the home page of Wedding Path.
