Ditton Manor Indian Wedding & Reception

An Indian Wedding and Reception at Ditton Manor 

This beautiful Bride and Groom, Shrina and Milan, had their Indian Wedding and Reception soaking in the sun with an outdoor event at Ditton Manor. 

 Photography at Ditton Manor Wedding Venue 

Housed in Berkshire, Ditton Manor is an iconic wedding and reception venue for Asian weddings. This venue gives an exclusive vibe, surrounded by a centuries old moat and gorgeous landscape of carefully manicured gardens which is a dream to photograph for any occasion, but even more special for a wedding ceremony.

The venue has a certain allure, with a sense of a magical and hidden location for a wedding venue which you can feel in the memories captured throughout the Indian wedding ceremony. The long pathway from the entrance to the manor house provides a great opportunity to make the most of the Jaan’s entrance, whilst the front of the manor house and the hedge maze make great settings for couple portraits. I had a ten-minute slot to create some amazing portraits with the bride and her bridesmaids and the Ditton Manor grounds made this a lot easier, and we had a lot of fun too. 

Outdoor Indian Wedding Ceremony

The weather was nothing short of perfect for Shrina and Milan, with the couple having always dreamed of a spectacular outdoor wedding. The sun was shining from beginning to end adding to the happy atmosphere all round! The Groom’s entrance kicked off the shoe stealing fun and games, with Ditton Manor’s large and spacious grounds giving the perfect space to run around. Family members ran all over the grounds chasing the shoes which led to them losing their shoes in the process! Milan made his way to the mandap with the traditional nose pinching from the bride’s family, and they did not hold back! 

The Bride made her entrance after a heartfelt message, thanking her family and husband-to-be and it was an honour to photograph such emotional memories. Throughout the ceremony it was clear to see that the lovely couple were surrounded by a loving family who were all showering them with well-wishes, particularly Milan’s grandma who it was evident he was very close to. There were an uncountable number of great memories to capture throughout the Indian wedding ceremony, including the bride showing her clear unhappiness at failing to sit down fastest after the Phera around the fire.

Fairmont Windsor Park Wedding

Fairmont Windsor Park Indian Wedding and Reception

In the depths of the English countryside, iconic heritage beautifully blends with modern elegance to create the perfect setting for the Indian wedding and reception for the lovely bride and groom, Charine and Nish.  

Fairmont Windsor Park is a stunning location for an Indian wedding and reception, with a grand country house boasting luxury, nestled on the edge of the historic Windsor Great Park. This tranquil Windsor hotel is surrounded by 40 acres of green space with a lake that is ideal for wedding portraits. Charine and Nish had a vision of the bridal portraits they wanted, and this hotel was an Indian wedding photographer’s dream with so many spaces inside and out to capture great couple photos.

This venue exudes elegance and the modern guest rooms and suites really do cater to the comfort of all the guests at an Indian wedding (and we know there are usually a lot of them!). The big hotel rooms are perfect for getting dolled up and the natural lighting is helpful. 

“You honestly exceeded all expectations (and believe me my expectations were high).”

Indian Wedding Ceremony

The day kicked off with a colourful and loud entrance from the Jaan’s side who really did bring the lively and fun energy that continued throughout the day. The Jaan arrived with colourful flares and the Band Baja that included dhol players, trumpets and a snare drum who got the party going with a mix of Bollywood and English songs. There’s nothing better than capturing emotions at a wedding and the smiles were everywhere I turned! The lively Groom had everyone on their feet as he stopped before the mandap to party in the aisle. 

Indian Reception Party

The Indian wedding ceremony set the tone for the evening at the reception party where all the guests were on top form. The mood lighting and extravagant décor was fun to capture and lent a hand to some great shots. I love being able to surprise my guests and creating a slideshow from the Indian wedding certainly put a smile on the bubbly bride and groom’s faces. The Indian reception didn’t do things by halves, and it went beyond the status quo of things I had seen before. This creative bride and groom chose to play the traditional Indian koda kodi instead of cutting a cake, and the winner of each round nominating a table of their new in-law’s family to have shots! It was great to capture something alternative that surprised the crowd too and went down a real treat. It’s safe to say this fun-loving bride and groom hosted an Indian reception party to remember and had the dance floor heaving from start to finish.

Manor of Groves Hindu Wedding

A day full of fun for Anj & Druv and all of their guests. The day was packed with smiles and joy which can easily be seen in the photos.  Situated across 150 acres of serene Hertfordshire countryside, Manor of Groves was the ideal Indian Wedding venue for Anj and Dhruv. 

The incredible architecture and swoon-worthy grounds are the perfect backdrop for an Indian wedding photographer to take beautiful couple portraits. The main room is full of natural light, and the bridal room was extremely spacious, both great places for capturing the bride and groom. The stunning gardens provide such a great view once you are in the main room and it creates a great background. It is also so versatile for couple portraits, with a pond, bridge, and metal gazebo (which can be used for civil ceremonies) all in close proximity. The walkway with wooden arches also serves as a great spot.

 Indian Wedding and Reception 

The day was busy with a hectic itinerary but working closely with the relaxed Anj and Dhruv beforehand helped to ensure all their special moments were captured well, and that the whole day ran smoothly. 

A fun and fuss-free day was on the top of the agenda for this beautiful bride and groom. Despite having a busy day with an Indian wedding ceremony, civil ceremony and wedding reception all taking place at the Manor of Groves, the day was chilled out and full of smiles! The groom made his entrance in style with plenty of dancing and fun to get the day started. Both the bride and groom donned amazing, light-coloured outfits which looked even more incredible when surrounded by the beautiful décor from Shagun Weddings. The wooden mandap coupled with the bright orange flowers gave the perfect woodland look to act as a backdrop for Anj and Dhruv’s Indian wedding ceremony.

The civil ceremony was the perfect place for an outfit switch into a smart and indo-western bridal look. Following the civil ceremony, the Indian reception was eagerly awaited by this bubbly couple to get the party started. The Bride was certainly ready for a fun but comfortable night and brought her Skechers along to make sure nothing was stopping her dancing the night away! The speeches had all the guests in hysterics and was the perfect end to a perfect day. 

The couple opted to have long tables around the room for their guests to be seated which was different from the norm but worked really well in my opinion. The long tables were dark wood which really complimented the rest of the decor. 

I really enjoy being a Wedding photographer at Manor of Groves. Located just outside of London, in the countryside of Hertfordshire. A venue surrounded by lots of greenery and flooded with lots of natural light. Anj & Dhruv chose a wonderful venue for their Civil Wedding & Reception.
