A very close friend of mine, Abhay, referred me to one of her colleague Anita. He said, she needs a photographer for her engagement. When I spoke to Anita, she said she wanted me for the whole day. I was a bit surprised as engagements don’t usually last that long. But when I met them, they told me that they are actually getting married on that day and they have not told anyone. Only their families knew about it. Anita’s brother was to announce their wedding once all the guests would have come in and then Anita and Simon would have walked in. I was so looking forward to see surprised look on people’s faces. But things do not always go as per plan. People had already started coming in after the traditional Chinese Tea ceremony was over. But it was still great to see people’s expression and the surprised looks on their faces.
It was the most chilled out wedding that I’ve come across. Wedding ceremony was followed by the Tea ceremony and then the guest arrival and barbeque. Wedding took place in Le Gothique which is set within a grade II listed building called The Royal Victoria Patriotic Building. This building has got a great history. Built in 1857, has served as an orphange, hospital during World War I and detention and interrogation centre of MI5 and MI6 during World War 2.
People were dressed casually. The flowers were done by Groom’s mother. When I arrived everyone in both the families were setting up the tables. The wine bottles were used as flower vases and two of the pictures from the pre wedding shoots were used as bottle labels. No speeches. It was a fantastic day, lovely couple and no rain for a change. Here are some of the pictures I love from the day.
