Priya + Jiten
Indian Wedding Photography, Leicester
My last full-blown Hindu wedding was one of my first back in 2006, so I’d been looking forward to Priya and Jiten’s wedding ever since they booked me. Indian weddings have a reputation for large numbers of people and the associated chaos, and this day didn’t disappoint. It also had the great outfits, food and atmosphere that I remember from previous Indian weddings that I have photographed.
Everything happened at Devonshire Place in Leicester, from the bride’s elaborate preparations, the ceremony that greets the groom’s arrival, the 90 minute wedding ceremony itself and the reception that followed. Then, in the evening, a selection (still loads!) of the guests returned for a more familiar reception complete with speeches, cake-cutting and first dance.
