This is the first post of several I will make for Vishali’s and Tom’s wedding celebrations for which I did the wedding photography in Birmingham and the Cotswolds. Vishali’s mum had been in touch almost a year ago about the couple’s engagement photography which I hadn’t been able to do as I was already booked, so I was thrilled when Vishali got in touch for her main wedding events!
It turns out that Vishali is cousins with a few past brides for whom I have photographed, so I already knew many of the aunties and uncles of this lovely family. Add that to Vishali’s and Tom’s stylish but very down to earth personalities, and I knew this would be a fantastic wedding full of friendliness, fun and panache.
I wasn’t wrong. Tom arrived in true fusion wedding style in a fantastic, vintage car (as driven by his grandfather in the day), and his family and guests shouted and danced to greet him despite the rain. Vishali looked amazing with her traditional makeup, and the ceremony was one of the most beautiful I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing – both aesthetically and in spirit with lots of sweet jokes, games and laughs.
