Pembroke Lodge Wedding

Wow! I cannot believe it has taken me this long to blog this wedding…I am so behind on my blogging! I have not only some weddings from last year to blog, but  from last summer! This wedding was on September, 5 months ago already.

The bride and groom  are Amaia and Auran, and they got married in the gorgeous Pembroke Lodge, in Richmond Park.

From the first moment I met them, I got a connection with them, specially with Amaia, who is from Spain (so do I) and book me as their photographer proved to be a good choice. There were groups of people speaking both english and spanish, so it was quite useful being able to communicate in both languages, specially for organizing the group shots.

Amaia is from the basque country, a region in northern Spain with its own traditions and her friends prepare a surprise for her.

They learnt how to dance the traditional basque country dance for her. This was a really beautiful thing to see and such a surprise for her, it was very emotional.

Indian wedding

After a few crazy weeks with a wedding pretty much every weekend, at last I have some free time to update my blog and share my experiences and of course, photos 🙂
Even though I photographed a wedding on May, I started my personal wedding season with this wedding, which was hold the 8th of July on a Hilton Hotel in London.
I was quite excited about it, since it was the first indian wedding for me (a muslim wedding to be more specific). The months before I tried to keep a good communication with the bride (Zobia) and asked her to give me as much information as she could in order to not miss anything important from the ceremony and she was very helpful.
Anyway, once I started working I felt completely relaxed as the atmosphere was great and people very nice and kind.
The first thing I did was to take some photographs of the hotel room before anyone arrived.

This is the place where bride and groom sat for the ceremony, isn’t it amazing?
After that, the bride was getting changed in a room in the same hotel and she wanted some photos while she was getting ready, followed by some formal portraits at the end, before going down to the ceremony room. I personally love when brides want me to go before the wedding to capture the moments when they are putting on her dresses, doing her hair, make up…I think it is lovely, and the photos I take on those moments they are always between my favorites of the day, maybe because there is so much emotion and excitement…

This last photo is the moment when the bride and groom left together in the car. See that woman with trainers?Well, she didn’t go to the wedding on her trainers, she was just walking on the street and decided to join the family 🙂 
Another wedding blog post very soon!
