Monique & Richard | Alrewas Hayes


A Message From PTP

For many years now, I have wanted to photograph an Indian wedding. Similar to Jewish ones in terms of the importance placed on family, community, dancing and food I know that I would love every minute of my first one. And this was exactly the case at Monique & Richard's wedding at the end of March. They are a thoroughly modern couple who both work in marketing, but are very respectful to their own faiths and families. So during their engagement shoot in town, we discussed the intricate details of their wedding day - from the early start for Monique to get ready to Richard's entrance at the venue on a white horse, the traditional Punjabi Hindu ceremony, hundreds of guests, to the English civil ceremony and massive evening reception for a total of 480 family & friends, complete with live Bhangra dance show! The whole day was a sensual riot of colour, love, music, smells and laughter. Our first shots were taken at 06:13 and we finished at 22:45 - so it was a long day but one we enjoyed every minute of! Big shout out to the wonderful team at one of our favourite venues -  Alrewas Hayes, Staffs, as well as the fun video team, DJs and of course my brilliant team of Annabel & Jen who helped me deliver some truly wonderful memories for this wonderful couple!
