Modern, classic walima in Leicester

This was going to be a fun event for me as I already knew the couple & their families really well after capturing one of their previous events. They are so relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera and it shows in the pics. I wanted the bridal prep pics to happen all naturally and you can see the make up artist and the hair stylist hard at work doing what they do, I took a back seat and photographed it as it happened.

Whilst I label my photography as modern, stylish photography, I wanted the photos to be modern with a classic feel to them.

The details – I always like to ensure I am kept busy by capturing some of the accessories whilst I may wait for certain moments.

On to the actual photo session, once again I wanted the couple to just interact naturally and the pics tend to take care of themselves.

It was a lunchtime walima and the sun was out, this can prove challenging for photographers due to the harsh sunlight. I wanted to use the scenic surroundings and had to think carefully about where I placed the couple.

It was an absolute pleasure capturing their walima, I’d like to wish the couple every happiness for the future.
