Secret Wedding Blog Styled Shoots Wedding Photography

Lifestyle shoot with Sorriso Weddings & Portraits

Contact Raj Dharar

Lets flashback to a warm sunny September. That suddenly seems like a while ago now Autumn (which pretty much feels like Winter to me) is here. Over a year ago, I had connected with Priya from Sorriso Weddings & Portraits on twitter and we eventually became friends. It might sound strange -becoming friends with someone you’ve never met? It felt like we had been friends forever, sharing the same interests, similarities and beliefs.

Secret Wedding Blog flat

My favourite part of my flat pictured above. The table is usually filled with fresh flowers, candles with the occasional sweet treat or fruit.



I had wanted to do a lifestyle shoot for Secret Wedding Blog for a while as I wanted some professional photographs. I love having my photo taken even if I do look slightly awkward most of the time. The location of shoot was at my home in Newbury, Berkshire in my beautiful flat. Ever since I saw it, I fell in love. I knew it was the place where I wanted to start this new chapter of my life. Naturally, it’s where I spend most of my time and it is SWB HQ after all.

Priya was so friendly and professional that she made me feel so at ease. I was laughing, cackling a lot during each part of the shoot. She spent the weekend at mine which was a combination of work and play.

I am actually currently in this position on the sofa as I type this – definitely a standard blogging position.

Raj lifestyle shoot

We took a walk down to a nature reserve which had the best light and got a few snaps down in the trees. Here I am below sitting on a log.


Priya kept saying over again, “I love my job”, ‘I love my job” – that was a subtle indicator that she loves what she does 😉 I would definitely recommend Priya for any photo shoots or wedding photography that you require. She is so lovely and you won’t regret it. Check out her work that was featured on the blog before here.

And now I’m walking away…

    Aaaaah this is awesome, such a lovely thing to wake up to (yes I just woke up at this silly almost afternoon hour ha!) thank you for your kind words Raj. Honestly can say this is one of my favourite shoots of 2015 away from all the weddings. It was a nice little getaway, didn’t feel like work and I’m totally in awe of the beautiful location you’ve moved to. You’re little yellow happy home rocks!! Until the next time my friend 🙂 x
