On Saturday, our team were truly privileged to photograph an incredible wedding, we are so glad that Bharvi and Roberto found us, as their wedding day was quite something. Thanks to a previous Bride, the lovely Claire, for pointing Bharvi in our direction! Speaking of directions, this was the first time we’d ever experienced a Bridal party genuinely getting lost on the way to the Church, the situation not recitfied by iPhone maps. Fortunately a guest walked past Bharvi and her Bridesmaids, and said “You’re Bharvi right? Your wedding is this way!”
The super-duper-stylish couple were married at the stunning St. Peter’s Italian Church in Clerkenwell, a place very dear to Roberto’s family, who have marked many an important day in this amazing space, modelled on the Basilica of San Crisogono in Rome. The ceremony was very meaningful, and very beautiful indeed, as were the surroundings. Bharvi and Roberto left the Church to be deluged by most of their guests covering them in rice… we have a sneaky suspicion that some guests were targeting the photographers too 🙂
From there, Bharvi and Roberto headed off for some photos, and to change into their evening garb. Guests made their way to the Round Chapel in Hackney, where they were entertained for most the evening by DJ Raju and Harv of Kudos Music. Also there to get the party going were funk, soul and motown band Ambassador, whose two sets got everybody on the dance-floor. Wonderful indian food was provided by Preeti Catering, thanks go to Ricky for making sure our team were well fed!
This day had everything… moments of hilarity, Italian influences, moments of affection and emotion, Indian influences, Bhangra, General Levy, delicious curry, wonderful venues, risque speeches, catwalk-fresh clothes, but most of all an awesome couple having a great time. Here are some of our favourite shots…
