Sara and Mohammed had two weddings – an official, legal and traditional Persian wedding and then a pure party at Hedsor House in Buckinghamshire. My colleague Mike shot the party day and I had the honour of documenting the couple’s weekday Persian wedding in Berkshire a few days earlier – the weather was scorching and really fitted with the middle-eastern vibe.
After the register office ceremony and formal photographs, we all made our way to Sara’s parents’ house where a large marquee had been erected in the garden and been decorated beautifully for the religious ceremony and feast afterwards (and WHAT a feast!)
I absolutely loved capturing all the small details that had taken so long to prepare and lay out – the sweets, the flowers and candles. I also enjoyed photographing all the emotions on show throughout the day, from Sara at the Register Office to Mohammed’s father hugging his son to the tears that flowed during the ceremony at the house. This really was a beautiful day and I absolutely loved sharing it with Sara, Mohammed and their families, who made me feel so welcome I was very touched.
Please enjoy this taste of their day..
