Faisal Mehndi – Asian Wedding Photography in London

I have the perfect antidote for the January Blues… and it comes in red, orange, green, pink and yellow, as a splash of vibrant colours and music! Faisal’s Mehndi was beautiful to photograph!

It was a lovely – very hot! – summer day in London, 17th July 2016, and I had the pleasure to work with the talented team of wedding videographers at IamMediaUK once more. The guests kept arriving, so we started shooting the details and decorations. As an asian wedding photographer in London, I absolutely love the happy, sparkly and colorful vibe of the mehndi or pre-wedding event. There is usually a lot of dancing too!
Here some of my favorite photos from the day:

After the speeches, the party started! Faisal’s big family had prepared a few performances, as a fun gift to the groom to be. I was shocked when they told me they had to rehearse the whole show over Skype… the effort and dedication that the family put, considering the fact that everyone lives in different cities and the little time they had to put everything together, made everything extra special and sweet 🙂

What an amazing Mehndi celebration that was! Just a month later, Faisal finally married his beautiful bride Neelam, make sure you check out the blog post about Neelam and Faisal’s Walima or wedding day too.

It was a pleasure to capture their two events and meet such a kind couple and their loving families 🙂
