    Best Wedding Speech?

    Tom Fletcher, from McFly, has released his groom’s wedding speech in which he sings to his bride. Having married his long term girlfriend last May, he has now shared his special speech from his special day on Youtube.

    On his Twitter account, he tweeted ‘For anyone who couldn’t be there with us on our wedding day last year, here’s my speech.’ but then said ‘I’m definitely NOT sharing the best men’s speech so you’ll have to make the most of mine I’m afraid!’

    Before launching into speech err.. song, he said: “I don’t have any idea how to write a good speech but I do know how to write a song, so I hope this isn’t cheating my way out of it too much.”
    The video was uploaded to youtube just a couple of days ago and the video has going viral thanks to people twitting on Twitter, everyone posting a video of Tom wedding speech all over Facebook timeline, and new papers such as The Telegraph and London’s radio station Heart picking up on the trend. Everone is talking about this video, if you don’t believe me just go to Google and search for “mcfly my wedding speech”

    Uploaded less than two days ago, the video has already had 3.7 million views around the world and shows no signs of slowing.

    Has he single handedly made every subsequent groom’s wedding speech obsolete or will other groom’s try to follow him by singing


    Being a wedding photographer in London, I have captured many groom’s wedding speeches, this has to be one of the best.

    Asian Wedding Photography at Hilton London Wembley

    Here are the photographs from the first ever asian wedding and reception the Hilton London Wembley, a brand new hotel near Wembley Stadium in London, England.

    Being the first london wedding photographer to provide a wedding photography package at this new venue, I arrived early so I could walk around the hotel to see the most photogenic areas of the hotel which would be used in a creative and artistic manner. I found there are so many areas where I could do the couple’s after wedding portrait shoot.

    I also got to say hello to all the other suppliers for this fantastic event – wedding caterers and events manager – Ragmama Ragasaan, J & I Mandap services – who set up the mandap and foyer area, Ravi Shastri – the Hindu Priest. We all had high praises for this new wedding venue ( the Hilton London Wembley ) and we all agreed this was going to be a popular premier venue for indian / asian weddings in North London.

    Reportage style, natural wedding photography was requested by the couple, with only some posed couples portraits. Having met Rupa & Manish a few times before the wedding day they were both relaxed whilst i captured the images during the marriage ceremony and they were say their vows. Also we had discussed the photo shooting plans for their wedding day which helped as they had a tight schedule with both the wedding and reception of the same day. Working with the wedding videographer who was filming his high definition ( HD ) videography, we were both using the excellent Canon 5D Mark II camera. He was using it to film video and I was shooting the WEDDING PICTURES, both using professional cameras and L series lenses to for top quality results.

    Asian Engagement Photography at Raven’s Ait in Kingston

    When Alpa first mentioned her asian engagement ceremony was at a fantastic wedding venue on an island in Kingston, Greater London, I was really looking forward to doing the photography for her and Dipan. I visited the Raven’s Ait website and my initial thoughts were I could really create some amazing photographs at this scenic and unusual wedding venue.

    However as the day of the engagement approached I was a bit concerned as the weather has not been fantastic this summer with all the rain and our plans for going out on the boat around the island for some of the portraits photography would be difficult. As it happened the prayers of both mums were answered and the engagement day was sunny and dry.

    I arrived at the venue early as the only way on to the island was by boat and also wanted to photograph both Alpa & Dipan when they arrived onto the islands. You don’t get the couple and guests arriving by boat at a Greater London wedding venue, so it was great to capture their reactions whilst on the boat.

    Over 250 family and friends joined the couple and their families for the engagement ceremony in the larger Marque at Raven’s Ait. Dipan once again went down on bended knee to propose to Alpa, followed by the ring ceremony and the chundri ceremony. One of Dipan’s uncles, Pradapbhai, described the events and order of the engagement ceremony, with explanations behind some of the rituals we asians undertake in a fantastic jovial manner that all the guests enjoyed the ceremony.

    After lunch, it was time for the couples portraits, using the island’s and the venues features to great effect. I wanted to show the thames river in some of the photographs from the island. but the best images were taken when we went onto the boat around the island. It was great to see both Alpa and Dipan enjoying themselves and I managed to capture so great natural moments.

    Back on the island it was time for the DJ to play his music, the couple to do the first dance and the guests soon joined them on the dance floor.

    Below are some of the great photographs taken on the day. This Greater London wedding venue was amazing to capture the beautiful and stunning images the ceremony.

    Destination Indian Wedding Photography

    Just had an amazing time at Bijal and Avnish’s Indian (hindu) wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace in the Riviera Maya, Mexico. They had the best group of family and friends attending their Indian Wedding Ceremony for their destination hindu wedding. Over 150 family and friends from all over the world – Calgary, Ottowa, Vancover, Nairobi, New York, Singapore, Mumbai, New Delhi, Rajkot, Banglore, London, Singapore to name just a few places This really made it a special day for the couple as so many people had taken the time and effort to attend this fabulous wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace.

    Credit must also be given to both Bijal and Anvish’s families in organising all the other event associated with indian weddings – the meet the families evening, mendhi party, the mandau and pithi ceremony, the fantastic indian destination wedding and the reception. This is not easy to do when organising an Indian Wedding thousands of miles away from your home city of Calgary. Family and friends had also helped by preparing homemade Indian food and sweets to make this a special occasion to remember.

    Outdoor Hindu Wedding Ceremony

    The morning of the wedding was a beautiful sunny day, wedding coordinator with the help of the hotel staff has decorated the gazebo with drapes and indian ornaments to set up the Mandap. The unsual mandap setup really looked stunning with the beautiful white sandy beach and deep blue sea as the backdrop for the outdoor hindu wedding ceremony, exactly what Bijal and Anvish had imagined. One thing that cannot be planned is the weather, even in Mexico. Minutes before the wedding was due to begin it started to rain and must have done so for about an hour, however with the blessing of god it eventually stopped. The hotel staff were excellent and quickly reset the guest sitting and sun come out and the wedding could start – just slightly delayed. A little rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck according to Indian tradition!

    The indian priest who had travelled from Calgery conducted a beautiful ceremony, performing the indian wedding ceremony rituals according to the customs which the couple will not doubt remember.

    Below are some of the natural wedding photos taken, the lighting couldn’t have been more perfect during the ceremony.

    All together, a perfect Indian wedding day!

    Perfect camera for asian wedding photography?


    The busiest stands were camera suppliers Canon and Nikon, as both have announced the new cameras the Canon 5D Markiii and Nikon D800. This Asian Wedding Photographer shoots with Canon 5d Markii cameras so I was more interested in the new Canon 5D Mark3. Will the new camera help me with my asian wedding photography? I had a chance to handle Canon’s EOS 5D Mark III 22MP HD DSLR, and found 5DmkIII has better high ISO performance so there should be improvement in low-light performance, useful for wedding venues that may not have perfect lighting conditions, the improved focusing will help with my natural and reportage style of wedding photography. Not forgetting this camera can be used for short clips high quality asian wedding videography as well.

    Asian Wedding Photographers review

    
All in all the 5D MK III is going to be a very capable camera for asian wedding photographers, and my feeling is Canon 5D mk3 prices will probably drop once the 5D mk2 stocks in the UK has been sold. Although the camera will be available from the end of March 2012, just like I have done previously I will wait for a few months in case there are any the initial issues to be ironed out. I am not aware of any but I just want to be certain that it’s is the perfect digital cameras for Asian Wedding Photography and this Asian Wedding Photographer.

    Weddings are one of the most important religious rituals in an hindu person life and getting married at Hare Krishna Temple / Bhaktivedanta Manor in Watford, is a perfect venue for this auspicious ceremony. The added bonus of choosing this beautiful wedding venue is that the indian weddings and civil / registry can take place in the Temple itself.

    I recently had the honor of photographing Bindya and Hemesh’s Vedic Indian wedding ceremony at the Hari Krishna Temple / Bhaktivedanta Manor, Watford. Bindya was recommended for my Asian wedding photography services by one of her cousin’s, Priya , whose wedding I had photographed a couple of years ago. It is a great honor when a bride is happy with her wedding photographs and albums that I became her recommended wedding photographer recommending my photography services to her cousin as well as her friends. It was great to meet up again with Priya and many of her family members.

    Bindya and Hemesh had a gorgeous traditional Indian wedding at Bhaktivedanta Manor. The couple wanted the contemporary wedding photography – natural and contemporary to reflect the fun and happiness of their big day not too many staged photographs. I had a wonderful time photographing their wedding, to see a couple so much in love, going through all the wedding rituals and customs – the Ganesh Puja, Kanyadaan, Agni Puja, Mangalfera, Saptapdi etc – the wedding ceremony being conducted in Gujarati & Sanskrit and explained in English by the Indian Wedding Priest from the temple itself.

    Here are a few of my favourite asian wedding photographs from their day:

As one of of these boys is my nephew he asked if I could be the Professional Events Photographer at their charity dinner / dance.

They also worked very hard on the night to make sure the event was successful at raising funds for the school in India.

    Mens photo shoot in London.

    Raghu found portrait photography portfolio website on google searching for a Portrait Studio in London and loved my style of portrait photography, so booked his photo shoot session.

It’s safe to say he was more than happy with his photoshoot and said he would recommend my services to his friends.
