Muslim - English Fusion Wedding in ManchesterPin it

I photographed this beautiful intimate Pakistani Muslim – English fusion wedding in Manchester late last year and it was such a lovely little wedding to be a part of, Cathy made a stunning bride in her made to order outfit from Faika Karim in Bradford and her make up was the talented Fatimah Vadia.

Cathy and Was, make a lovely couple and are full of love and admiration for each other, they are just perfect for each other in every way.

We managed to get some time in the late afternoon for some portraits at a nearby location from the wedding venue Nawaabs and the light was just perfect. I recommend portraits at sunrise or sunset to all my couples, the light at the time is just lush, as you will see from the pictures below.

A French Indian Wedding In LondonPin it

What do I mean by a French Indian fusion wedding in London? I mean a relaxed, intimate and super romantic wedding that took place in the back garden of Preeya’s family home.

After having a civil wedding celebration in France, Preeya and Thibault were looking for a photographer in the UK to cover their Hindu wedding celebrations, so Preeya set her cousins a task to find her a wedding photographer and they found her one, who just happened to be me!

From the moment I met Preeya, we have laughed endlessly, I made a friend in her instantly and from the cups of tea to trying to get her into the lengha blouse on her wedding day, there were so many moments that we just laughed about and there was so much emotion too.

I loved seeing Thibault’s family getting involved in the Hindu celebrations by dressing in sarees and sherwanis, in fact the morning of the wedding, Preeya’s house was filled with the happy chaos of women getting ready and the whole 9 yards being ironed, draped and pinned on to the many French women that were there as guests.

Both Preeya and Thibault looked lush in their outfits, I loved that Thibault mixed the Indian attire with his brogues. Preeya’s gorgeous lengha was a beautiful combination of elegance and style.

These two are so much in love and you can tell from the glances they give each other throughout the day how special this day was for them. My favourite part of the day was the ‘saptapadi’ -the seven steps, when the couple take seven vows – Thibault had sat down with the priest the day before and got it all translated into French so all his family and friend could understand, a perfect blend of two cultures. Love see’s no boundaries after all.

Hope you enjoy this wedding as much as I enjoyed being part of it.
