Frezia and Farzad • Persia mets Pakistan at beautful Lillibrook Manor • Documentary Wedding Photography

Lillibrook Manor really was the perfect backdrop for Frezia and Farzad’s wedding. They had a week of celebrations already and this was the cherry on top! 

The daylight was short so I knew that we would have to move quickly after the ceremony to get shots outside. So after Frezia was handed over by her mother and after the vows and the “I do’s” everyone started the celebrations off by grabbing a handful of confetti and throwing it high over their heads as they walked through their confetti line as a married couple. 

We went for a quick walk around the grounds of Lillibrook Manor, which is just beautiful, there are so many little nooks and different backgrounds, it really is a playground for photography! The light was gone by the time we finished, (we were only out about 20 minutes) but we finished off with the stunning fairy light backdrop of the main barn which was perfect.

Heading inside they were greeted with cheers and clapping, the smiles and happy tears followed during the speeches and the energy of the day kept flowing as the meal finished and the evening guests arrived. Oh what a night!

I always say to Brides and Grooms that if you want a full dance floor all night then you need to dance! Your guests will follow you, no one is going to leave a bride and groom on an empty dance floor! This is exactly what this gorgeous couple did, and that dance floor was full all night! With the smiles, the dancing, the mix of Persian and Pakistani cultures and the fairy lights in the background of Lillibrook manors main barn - everything came into place perfectly!

Sapna and Kunal • Old Marylebone Town Hall • The Personal Touch • Sparkler Wedding • Documentary Wedding Photography

It was such an honour to be asked to shoot the civil ceremony part of Sapna and Kunal’s wedding celebrations. Having gone to school with Sapna, it made it even more special to be a part of her day, she mentioned before that she wanted each part of the day to be as personal as possible, with their videographer being a friend from University, me, their photographer, being in School with Sapna, and the celebrations afterwards being at their brand new home together - the personal touch was definitely achieved. 

Having already had a few days of celebrations and religious marriage ceremonies, I was only needed for a few hours on their civil ceremony day. I met them up town at The Old Marylebone Town Hall, where I’ve shot a few times. The venue on a Sunday is really lovely and chilled out compared to Saturday’s there. This gave us much more space to capture photos and allowed for clean backgrounds, especially during the couple shots, it also allowed us to use the internal staircase for a few shots too before the next wedding came along. On a Saturday, it’s not possible to use the internal staircase as their are multiple weddings going on at the same time and the stairs are the main entry and exit so have to be kept clear. 

Even though they had already been religiously married, the nerves were still clear to see as they both said their civil vows. We moved quickly after the ceremony to get all the group shots and couple shots, we then headed back to their new home. The evening drew in and it was perfect for their sparkler entrance! I loved capturing these photos, they really do have a magical feel! I left them celebrating with their family and friends, it was a truly heart warming day, and a complete honour to be a part of.

“Sparkle, baby, sparkle!”
