Our words cannot express our thanks to you that shared this much happiness in our photographs of our wedding day. You have managed to capture every little detail, and every little moment that has just allowed Samin and I to re-experience through the fantastic photographs you have taken for us on the single most important day of mine and Samin’s lives…. Thank you!!!!
Watching the slide show, brought tears of joy to us both, and to see the bits we didn’t get to see as we were too busy getting ready, or talking or doing lots of other wedding duties on our day. We are looking forward to sharing these with our friends and families who will love the beautiful photos you have taken of them who are our nearest and dearest.
Your efforts really show and like I said before I cannot express mine and Samin’s gratitude enough for these.
It was a total privilege to be a Regent’s College wedding photographer for the wedding of Samin and Chris. They are two of the loveliest people I have met in a long while. They love London and their venue was beautiful for their Persian wedding. It was great that the weather was nice for their outdoors ceremony.
I met Chris and Samin in late spring / early summer for a pre-wedding shoot in London and we had the opportunity to chat and get to know each other, it was a lovely and relaxed shoot. On the day of the wedding, I arrived early to witness the preparations. There was excitement palpable in the air and it is always a great to see plans falling into place. Samin looked incredible and with a radiant smile all day. Chris was relaxed, incredibly smart and also enjoying every single minute.
I had never witnessed a Persian wedding before and it keeps me fresh witnessing new traditions and work in new environments. I certainly learn a few things such as the exchange of honey and the knife dance to name a couple.
Chris and Samin choose to have a first look (they see each other before the ceremony) and have a few portraits before their guests arrive for the ceremony. The ceremony, performed by Samin’s cousin was beautiful. The guest were then also invited for a drink before the meal. A little bit or rain meant that some of that time was spent inside the marquee but luckily it was not for very long.
After the meal, the knife dance took place whereÂ Samin’s sister and friends dance with the knife and ask for payment before giving to the couple. It is a lovely tradition and a fun moment to witness. After this, it was time for everyone to join Chris and Samin on the dance floor and enjoy the party.
Below are some of my favourite one’s for the day. I hope that you like and please free to leave me a comment at the end. If you are looking for a Regent’s College Wedding Photographer, please get in touch to discuss your wedding day!
