Chundeep and Ritesh had a fantastic, fun-packed day, celebrating their wedding at The Mere Golf Resort and Spa and we were there as their Indian wedding photographer and videographer. The couple were both keen to honour their religious heritage. Chun is Sikh and Ritz Hindu, so they were married in a Sikh ceremony in Dubai and had Hindu and civil ceremonies at The Mere. The civil ceremony was one of the most special moments for them as they had written their own personalised vows with deep emotional resonance for them both.

Their vision for the day was strongly influenced by Chundeep’s late mother. Chun grew up steeped in her mother’s Punjabi culture and great love of Bollywood films, so she was clear that she wanted to do her wedding shopping in India. Contending with the notorious Delhi traffic in 48 degree heat was tough, but Chun found her beautiful wedding jewellery in the very same store her mother used to frequent, so it was worth the journey. She also found her perfect wedding outfit in the nick of time, just hours before the flight home. I absolutely adore her hot pink gown with gold embroidery and the bold colour was perfectly complemented by Ritz’s ivory suit with its pink and gold detailing. Their couple shots are just dreamy. They look so in love, which is just gorgeous to see and I love that joy and humour coming through in the pictures. Stunning, guys!
The bridesmaids’ ivory skirts and baby pink blouses were so elegant and they too had plenty of fun posing for the photo shoot, which was great! During the wedding breakfast, the couple played old Bollywood songs from their parents’ generation. The evening party saw a change of outfit and we were able to capture some more stunning shots. Their guests were really up for a party and there was plenty of dancing and good times. This was an awesome wedding brimming with love, fun and feelgood vibes. Congratulations guys, we are truly honoured to be chosen as your Indian wedding photographer and videographer!

This was technically the second wedding for Kokil and Neil. A few months before their stunning wedding at the luxurious Combermere abbey in Cheshire, they held a traditional ceremony in India. Two very different worlds with two people in common.
We always love it when we get to shoot in a new venue and when we took a quick look at Combermere abbey we knew it would have incredible results. The ceremony was held in a big glass conservatory set in the middle of a labyrinth of fruit bushes. Despite the wedding being held in October we were all blessed with a bright sunny day which meant everyone could see the full beauty of the setting.
Kokil and Neil’s special day was packed full of surprises! The best man was able to find video footage of Neil’s self proclaimed wonder goal scored on the Stockport County football pitch. However the biggest surprise of the day was for Neil when Kokil took a scene from his favourite film, ‘Meet Joe Black’ and recreated it. In this scene there is an impressive firework display whilst Louis Armstrong’s ‘Wonderful World’ is playing in the background. Kokil had the staff tell everyone that there had been a small kitchen fire and they were to evacuate to the front lawn. As the last guest had left the room, the music kicked in and the first fireworks were lit in what was to be an immense display. I don’t think anyone had a dry eye by the end of the display!
We hope you enjoy the our job as Cheshire wedding photographer and the videography! Weddings like this one make us realize how lucky we are we to have the opportunity to be a part of so many big days!
We were delighted when Min Hae & Tom chose Viva La Wedding for their wedding videographers. They were married at Iscoyd Park, a venue we know pretty well and where we have done wedding videography before, stunning!
Their day was a truly romantic occasion with a very emotional ceremony and heartfelt speeches. They were keen to tell how they met and the simple romance of their touching story was a joy to edit!
“It’s the best day of my life! I can’t believe I’m marrying my best friend! I can’t wait to be your wife for the rest of our lives!”
Chido’s words to Terry sum up the spirit of their African wedding, a day filled with joy and emotion, not to mention some fabulous dancing! They were married in a religious ceremony at Cheshire’s elegant Haslington Hall. The half-timbered mansion provided an imposing setting that was more than matched by the couple’s impeccable styling. Chido looked stunning in her strapless gown and veil with matching lace and Terry was dapper in his monochrome dinner jacket. I love that his groomsmen’s suits were like photographic negatives of Terry’s outfit! The bridesmaids were dazzling in their peach prom dresses and when they joined Chido on the dancefloor for a special flashmob, their sense of fun was infectious!
A helicopter ride always adds that wow factor and when Chido took off with her beau it was a spectacular moment! The weather was kind and we were able to capture some beautiful sunset shots in the grounds of Haslington Hall. The couple look so relaxed and in love, and of course super gorgeous! Congratulations Mr and Mrs Sibanda! Your African wedding was a day to remember!
“Those close to me know that I’m not the best at showing emotion, in fact I’m probably the worst. But there’s something different about Sara…”
We were pretty excited about Carmina and David’s wedding at Mottram Hall, Cheshire. After an awesome engagement shoot, we felt we had really got to know them and our team were all set to film and photograph the little details that made them and their wedding day special.
Carmina is our first ever Austrian bride and she really did look wunderschön on the engagement shoot, snippets of which you can see in the couple’s wedding highlights film. As a beautician we knew her styling would be impeccable
