Indian Wedding Photography at West Tower | Vanisha + Mel

Indian Wedding Photography at West Tower

Vanisha and Mel’s wedding day was a first for me, it was the first time I had shot two weddings in one day! I started the day with Vanisha at her parents house in Manchester for the bridal preparations. It was great to work with brilliant make up artist Sarah Meredith and to shoot the day alongside James Wray Wedding Films. I have worked with both Sarah and James on many weddings before, they are both some of the very best suppliers in the wedding industry and great fun to work with. Once Vanisha was ready she headed over to West Tower in Ormskirk for the first wedding service of the day. Mel, as a typical New Yorker, was relaxed before the service which was held outdoors in the gardens of West Tower. Once the legalities were complete, a short session of couple photos followed before the buffet lunch was served.

Indian Wedding Ceremony

Once lunch was complete Vanisha headed to the bridal suite to commence preparation for the Indian wedding ceremony. Once ready the beat of dohl drums rang through West Tower as first Mel arrived closely followed by Vanisha. Then the wonderful, emotional Indian wedding ceremony took place. It was a pleasure to experience Vanisha and Mel’s wedding, the beauty of Indian wedding services is how personal and unique they are, even though I have shot Indian services before, there are so many variations to the service that there’s always something new and exciting to photograph.

Couple Photos and Speeches

After the Indian wedding ceremony Vanisha and Mel had a further short session of couple photos before the main meal took place inside West Tower. The speeches followed and then it was onto the evening celebrations that started with Vanisha and Mel’s first dance before going long and late into the night. I loved shooting Vanisha and Mel’s Indian wedding photography and covering two wedding services in one day. So here’s Vanisha and Mel’s wedding photos, get in touch if you are looking for a wedding film or photos for your Indian wedding service.
