For the first time in my 8 year photography career, i entered an image to be judged by
The Society of Wedding & Portrait Photographers (SWPP)
The image below achieved a highly commended award. My aim for 2017 is to achieve a gold award and enter the annual 20×16 print competition.
Before the wedding in the splendid Leigh Court in Bristol, Shabina and Sajid celebrated a Mehndi ceremony in Wales. Shabina wore a magical violet Indian bridal dress with gold and silver details and Sajid looked brilliant in golden Sherwani with violet neck-scarf. In the wedding, Shabina pulled off a navy blue and white Indian-style bridal dress with golden intricacies. Sajid stunned in a navy blue suit and tie.
Finally, the celebrations ended with the reception at Cardiff Castle. Shabina rocked a white gown and Sajid a black and white suit. The couple also did the mannequin challenge. The guests collaborated!
The whole wedding scene was captured beautifully by the Asian wedding photographer in Wales AIYA, based in London covering photography and cinematography nation-wide.
