Last December I photographed Emma and Navin’s Nonsuch Mansion Wedding. They had planned a low key dual ceremony wedding incorporating a civil ceremony followed by a Hindu ceremony. Both were held in the beautiful octagonal Orchid Room showing just how versatile it is.
Nonsuch is such a lovely place to get ready. They have a dedicated dressing room upstairs which is beautifully spacious and light, from a photographers perspective, just perfect! During their engagement session, Emma & Navin expressed that they wanted a low key day with minimal fuss, words not normally associated with Hindu ceremonies! They got exactly what they wanted, a lovely relaxed day that didn’t feel rushed even though they fitted so much in. All interspersed with mince pies and a little splash of Christmas cheer.
‘Subtle’ is a great word to describe Emma and Navin’s day. They wanted the emphasis to be on everyone enjoying themselves and they are not fond of being in the lime light. Groups and portraits were kept to a bare minimum so as not to detract from the celebrations. The contrast in colours and traditions between the two ceremonies was quite dramatic but linked subtly with the pink flowers in Emma’s bouquet and her pink Indian dress and they added a hint of Christmas was mince pies and snowflake cookies as favours.
This was such an amazing day to photograph as Emma and Navin just let me do what I do best, capture natural, unobtrusive, documentary photographs, whilst they relaxed and enjoyed their wedding. If you’re getting married at Nonsuch and would like more information on my wedding photography packages then please do get in touch.
