Rachna and Saif got married at Coventry’s Hilton Hotel in a lovely Civil Ceremony. Rachna wore a lovely long red Asian bridal outfit, while Saif opted for a suit. Before heading into their wedding ceremony, we took the lovely Husband and Wife-to-be to Caludon Castle Park for a photoshoot session. Here, we were able to capture the couple feeling relaxed and fresh before the busy day ahead of them.
Once the photoshoot was done, the couple headed back to the venue, ready to share their vows. It was a beautifully effortless civil ceremony, great to capture!
The newlyweds had some formal photographs taken with their nearest and dearest before Saif went off to get changed for the sit-down meal. His 2nd outfit was a traditional Asian Grooms outfit and he looked like royalty. The couple made their grand entrance and headed for the stage where their Bride and Groom seats were. They had a few more family photographs before we swanned them off for a few more photographs around the grounds of Hilton Hotel, before they headed back into their reception ready for speeches to take place.
We had a lovely time capturing the wedding of Rachna and Saif. The Finishing Touch team wish you all the very best and thank you for making us part of your day.
Gopi and Michelle got married in a lovely civil ceremony at Ramada Parkhall Hotel followed by their reception at the same venue. While Gopi got ready at home surrounded by his loved ones, Michelle got ready in the bridal suite of the venue with her nearest and dearest. Michelle wore a lovely lacey white wedding dress while her bridesmaids wore long blush pink dresses.
While Michelle got ready, each of the bridesmaids received gifts and they returned the surprise by presenting Michelle with a little booklet of memories. The girls had all known each other from their days at school and were very close friends so this gift was both personal and meaningful to Michelle. How sweet!
Michelle made her grand entrance with her father into the Orangery of Ramada Park Hall and the wedding ceremony began. The couple shared their vows and officially became husband and wife. After the ceremony, all guests went out into the grounds of the venue for canapés and champagne. The venue has a lovely grand sweeping staircase where we grouped the guests for a big group portrait and confetti shot before taking photographs of smaller groups with the couple.
Gopi and Michelle had planned an outfit change so we managed to get some photographs of the couple before they headed up to their room to get changed. Once they got changed, they headed back downstairs to make their 2nd grand entrance of the day. Once Michelle and Gopi entered the Ballroom they cut their fabulous colourful cake designed to look like beautiful indian style cushions and then took to the dance floor for their first dance. The dance floor opened and our Newlyweds had their nearest and dearest join them on the dance floor to celebrate their beautiful day.
It was such a pleasure capturing your special moments, thank you for choosing us to be part of your big day.
Raj and Kiran tied the knot in a lovely Civil wedding ceremony at the The Ramada Hotel in Sutton Coldfield, followed by a crazy party at the same venue. Kiran opted to get ready at home surrounded by her nearest and dearest. She wore a beautiful white strapless wedding dresses with a sweetheart neckline, complete with a white and blue bouquet. In the morning, we were able to capture some bridal shots before Kiran headed downstairs to have photographs taken with her family and loved ones.
Raj also get ready at home with his family, before making his way to Kiran’s house to exchange the Jaimala, a flower garland. He wore a cadbury purple shirwani grooms outfit. Once the garlands were exchanged, the couple made their way to their wedding ceremony in separate cars. We were left oggling at the Ferrari F1 Kiran had to escort her to the venue. Before the couple entered their wedding ceremony, we managed to sneak them away for a few couples photographs. We took them around the grounds of the hotel to capture some beautiful sunny Autumn photos. The colours of autumn added character to their photos.
The couple entered their wedding ceremony and began to exchange vows and rings. Once the couple officially became Husband and Wife they headed outside to be greated by an explosion of confetti. The couple had the chance to mingle with guests while enjoying celebratory drinks, before they headed to their room to get changed. Kiran changed into a traditional Indian lengha in gold and red colours and had her overall hair and make-up transformed to a glamorous evening look. Raj decided to wear a rather sophicticated 3 piece suit.
While the couple got changed, our team had the opportunity to capture guests mingling, some group shots and the stunning reception party decor. I don’t think we’ve seen a cake so tall like the one Kiran and Raj opted for. The guests were seated and the couple made their grand entrance into the venue. They had a sax player walk them down the red carpet to their cake table. Once the couple finally cut their cake they stepped onto the dance floor to have their first dance as newlyweds. This opened up the dance floor for all their friends and family to join them and the party well and truly started.
It was a wonderful, relaxed and seamless day! Thank you Raj and Kiran for choosing us to be part of your wedding day to capture your special moments
Mike and Nicole were one of our lovely March 2016 couples. They married in lovely civil ceremony, which took place in the Orangery of the stunning Stoneleigh Abbey in Kenilworth. Both Mike and Nicole got ready at their family homes, surrounded by their nearest and dearest. Mike surprised Nicole with lots of pre-planned gifts before she got ready. What a great capture! Nicole wore a beautiful princess style white dress and her bridesmaids wore long fuchsia coloured dresses.
While Mike made his way to Stoneleigh Abbey in a swanky white Bentley, we took portraits and video footage of Nicole with her family and bridesmaids at home. Before entering the orangery, we took Mike out for some Groom shots and captured some images of him with his family outside the venue, As the orangery began to fill up, we could see Mike anxiously awaiting his beautiful Bride’s arrival. Nicole walked down the aisle with both her parents at her side. Oh the emotions were high but it made a great capture for their wedding video and photographs.
Once the couple became official newlyweds, we took them outside for their loved ones to shower them with confetti, before taking them outside for their couple’s photoshoot. It was a blustry and cold day, so Mike and Nicole were troopers, braving the weather and allowing us to capture their couple’s photoshoot outside. We managed to capture some stunning shots, before heading back into the conservatory area of Stoneleigh Abbey to capture their group formal photographs.
Guests were guided to the Wedding Breakfast area to be seated for Mike and Nicole to make their grand entrance. After their wedding breakfast, Nicole’s dad, Mike’s best man, and Mike himself gave speeches and toasted the new Mr and Mrs on their future as a married couple. After the wedding breakfast, the wedding event service, Monsoon Venue group turned the room around for the reception party. This allowed us to take the couple for more photographs, this time making use of the stunning interior Stoneleigh Abbey has to offer. The couple proceeded to make their second grand entrance of the day to cut their wedding cake and take the dance floor for their first dance as newlyweds.
Despite the weather, what a stunning day Mike and Nicole’s wedding was. We can’t thank you enough for choosing The Finishing Touch team to capture your beautiful day.
