Location: Swallowfield, Reading uk
I was thrilled to be asked to photograph the engagement ceremony of Rishi and Anika this weekend in Swallowfield, Berkshire – just outside Reading. Anika is a friend from school and I had photographed her sister’s engagement ceremony a few years ago so was delighted to see familiar faces again. I had been so excited about photographing all the wonderful colours worn by the ladies – the whole event was amazing to be a part of. While dodging the rain I managed to take the couple outside for some time alone where we found a small lane and a beautiful cottage as a wonderful backdrop for some photographs. Anika’s dress looked amazing against the red brick and green grass…..Rishi looked pretty good too!
All generations on both sides of the families play their part in the ceremony which lasts around 4 hours and finishes with dancing – again….all generations join in and it is truly an amazing spectacle with different dances for each track played. The whole day was so uplifting and certainly beats any party I’ve been too!
Thank you both for such a wonderful day. Lauren x
