Last week we posted Part 1 (View here) and now here is Part 2 of Anna and Rakesh’s Asian Wedding Photography at the Empire in Leicester starts with their Bride and Groom portraits. I was really looking forward to this wedding. Anna and Rakesh have awesome style and are lots of fun. We had talked about their love of props in photographs and Rakesh said he was going to try and get hold of a vintage motorbike for the shoot which was cool. Rakesh’s mum had been hard at work making a traditional indian decorative umbrella as well. When we found out that a fun fair was coming to town that weekend it was the icing on the cake! I met up with Rakesh and Anna at Abbey park a few days before the wedding in the pouring rain to scout out the best backdrops for the photographs. The wind was blowing a gail and all the blossom was falling like snow, very pretty but we were hoping at least some would stay on the trees for the wedding! The fair was brilliant, I really enjoyed it. There was so much to photograph we could of stayed all day but we had to get back to the guests for dancing and cake.
The evening celebrations got underway with music from the 5 Rivers Road show. Anna and Rakesh cut their beautiful cake, Rakesh made a speech and the couple started the dancing in style. Rakesh’s mum Kala found the biggest glass on the planet and made sure no one went thirsty! it was so funny to photograph, I was still laughing when I was editing the pictures! Then after all that alcohol they let Rakesh loose with a sword!!! I should have had a swig from the giant glass before I stood in front of him as he swung the sword round his head, quite a scary moment! It was great day and a privaledge to work with such a lovely couple. Congratulations to you both, enjoy the wedding photographs.
