I was so excited when Nishil and Nimisha asked me to do their wedding cinematography in Essex when they tied the knot at the end of April. Their choice of Essex wedding venue, Fennes Estate, is known for the beauty of its gardens and the elegance of the architecture, and it was a pleasure to work there.
As the couple were having both civil and traditional Hindu wedding ceremonies I worked with a second shooter, Aleksandra, to make sure every single detail was captured. The couple first exchanged vows in a garden gazebo in a civil ceremony before moving into an extravagantly draped marquee for the religious aspects of their wedding. The bride looked incredible in her traditional Hindu wedding dress made from a sumptuous cream and red fabric ornately embroidered with gold thread, which was carefully chosen to match her new husband’s own wedding suit.
Fennes Estate is a wonderful Georgian country house set amongst 100 acres of stunning Essex countryside. Its beautiful gardens include a lake, gazebo, ornamental bridge and swathes of emerald lawns. This typical English setting lends surprisingly itself well to the colour, music, and vibrancy of a Hindu wedding, and I was impressed with how well the staff catered to their requirements. Everything went incredibly smoothly allowing the couple to relax and enjoy their special day.
After the ceremony and photos, Nimisha changed into a gorgeous gold and cobalt outfit for the wedding reception. Her clothing perfectly complemented the wedding decor which featured an amazing five tier cake from Sugar Dust by Amina who custom blended a bespoke shade of blue for their cake.
Once the cake had been served and the formalities of the evening were over, this very elegant group cut loose and danced with abandon under the fairy lit tented ceiling of the marquee to the sound of the Bhangra drums. There was no discrimination in the type guests on the dancefloor with the older guests showing the younger ones how it should be done, and the women’s arms decorated with mehndi and glittering bangles competing for space with the men’s energetic waving.
From start to finish Nimisha and Nishil’s wedding was a celebration to remember, and certainly one I was glad to witness in my role as their Essex wedding cinematographer. I am grateful to them for allowing me to be a part of their wedding.
