Pre Wedding Photography packages are included in my wedding photography price list. When Anjali & Priyank confirmed their booking in november last year they did not want a winter photo shoot and requested the shoot to take place in February or March of this year for warmer weather and better light.
‘Asian Pre-Wedding’ Photo Session
Most of the pre wedding photo sessions booked as part of the wedding photography package are done in on a weekday, however when possible I will work with the engaged couple and arrange a weekend date so they do not have to take a day off from work. This is exactly happened in Anjali & Priyank’s case. We arranged a weekend at the end of February but after watching the BBC weather forecast on the friday, the prediction was a complete wash out that weekend so we agreed to cancel.
The next two weekends were not possible as Anjali was going away on her hen night and Priyank with his mates were off to his stag do somewhere in Europe.
We arranged another saturday and again the forecast was rain the whole day, so finally time was running out we did the shoot of a Thursday.
We had originally agreed to meet near Tower Bridge in Central London, so the shoot can start here near River Thames and City Hall, the official building of The Mayor London.
However, in this case Anjali requested we go to Windsor as she wanted something different, not the normal London tourist sites. Windsor’s primary attraction is the stunning Windsor Castle – the largest and oldest inhabited castle in the world and the Queen’s favourite weekend home and a ‘must see’ for everyone’s list.
We met at her home is Southall and Priyank had come down from Leicester the previous night. We headed on the M4 to the town of Royal Windsor in Berkshire in Priyank’s company car, a beautiful white Audi.
Pre-Wedding Photography on a Sunny Winter’s Day
We had a great day and warm for this time of the year if we stayed in the sun. This suited Anjali as she had come dressed in a beautiful sari. When I asked her why she chose a Sari, she said “a sari it was her signature outfit”. It was great to hear a young British born Indian lady proud of her South Indian heritage.
We had a great time walking, talking and capturing these fantastic pre-wedding photographs around Windsor. We even joked if the Queen would invite us for tea when we got close to the castle.
We managed to find a red phone box normally associated with London and used it in a couple of images, followed by going to Windsor Promenade and River Thames where whilst feeding the ducks one them tried to bite Anjali’s hand too.
On the way back we stopped at Windsor Great Park, but at this time of the year it was not great as the trees has not leaves on them. We dis manage to use Priyank’s Audi in a few photos.
All in all a great session and fab photos are the result.
