    Valentine’s Day Ideas

    When buying gifts for that special someone, there can be the added pressure of making sure you get the ‘perfect gift’. This feeling came when trying to find Mark something for his 29th birthday. I was discussing gifts with my twin sister Rita and she said – “He has everything so an experience would be a good idea”. She was right. Mark has the important things he wants already, he’s got to a point where he doesn’t want gifts for the sake of it. We are saving up for our future after all… Rita’s words about the experience did stay in my mind when I bought him an experience for his birthday.

    Phase Eight Bridal Collection 2015

    Before Christmas I was invited to Phase Eight’s flagship store in London to browse through their new bridal collection. I couldn’t make it due to work. I was rather gutted. However, I am pleased to share with you some of their new designs. The other day, I was thinking about wedding planning and how everyone says how expensive weddings are. With a quick calculation based on a made up budget and by using averages, I worked out, that this was in fact true. Sudden panic! I’m not even engaged yet but if I was proposed to tomorrow and start the wedding planning, I would be concerned financially, especially when you need to go over house deposits, honeymoon and/or engagement parties.

    Las Vegas Indian Fusion Wedding

    Kajal and Anthony had the most amazing wedding at the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas. The first I heard of the Bellagio hotel was in Oceans Eleven, (great film). It was a beautiful wedding day with a fusion of their cultures. Kajal looked like an indian princess in her beautiful red and gold wedding lengha and it was so nice to see their proud parents supporting this cute couple on their wedding day. Their wedding was captured so beautifully which is why I was eager to share it on Secret Wedding Blog. It’s the first Las Vegas fusion wedding to be featured on the blog! Read More

    A Photographer’s first Asian Wedding

    When you are a wedding photographer you are faced with the similar traditions of a wedding, a groom waiting for his bride, a bride wearing a white dress, walking down the aisle, more guests arriving for the evening reception and so on. However when you are photographing a wedding where you’ve never experienced the traditions, it’s a very different experience. Read More

    Interfaith marriage and the community

    What loyalty is more important to you – your family and your own faith or your partner who is of another? You probably cannot decide; many people in interfaith relationships find their perception of other faiths tilted, and they don’t share the distance that those of their own community feel towards their partner’s group. But when things are difficult in the marriage the distance between faith communities can reinforce problems, particularly if members of those communities didn’t support the marriage in the first place.

    Save the Date Photo ideas

    Last year I wrote a post on 22 Creative save the dates for your inspiration and it’s been a very big hit! The post gives you examples of a range of creative save the dates from typography based, to magnets and even balloons. One of the popular ideas was a photography based one. This isn’t surprising because it’s a great way to personalise your save the date giving your guests a reminder of your wedding and your love for each other. (It may sound cheesy but I love cheese – no literally I really do!).  Read More
