A few weeks ago I shot Ria and Sai’s wedding at the Manor of Groves in Essex. A little bit of a background first…Ria and Sai booked without even having met me and this was a first for me. We spoke on the phone a few times and it felt as if I was speaking to friends. I’m so glad they did book and their wedding was simply beautiful. It pretty much rained all day (except for when we shot the portraits), but that didn’t dampen the day one little bit.
We did finally meet about a week before the wedding for a brief engagement session and it rained that day too, except for about 15 mins before the sun went down. They said they were super nervous in front of the camera and they probably were at first but when it came to the big day, you wouldn’t have noticed.
Ria looked absolutely stunning and Sai was on form with his attire too. Custom designed outfits is the way to go! One of the funniest moments was definitely Sai wearing the wrong shoes (a few sizes too big) at his entrance, out of fear they would be stolen by the brides family straight away (One of the traditions on a wedding day). The day ended with a kick ass reception with a few games on the dance floor that were simply epic!
Congratulations you two and all the best for the future!
Congratulations Ria and Sai!
