Summer Wedding at Poundon House - Nalinie & Chris


I first met Nalinie and Chris at another wedding I was photographing last year. After seeing their friends images from the day, they decided they wanted the same relaxed and informal style of photography for their day too. So they got in touch and decided to book me for their summer wedding at Poundon House in Bicester!

I was so excited about their plans for the day as they were having not one but 2 ceremonies! A Hindu ceremony for the morning and then a civil ceremony for the afternoon. So, there was a lot going on- including 3 outfit changes and 320 guests! WOW.

The venue was looking stunning and despite a cloudy start to the day- the sun came out and it was another scorcher. I cannot believe how chilled Nal was all morning! There was so much going on- but all of their friends and family were amazing and helped out massively with all the preparations. 

This being the first Hindu wedding I have ever photographed, I was stunned by all the beautiful colours and gorgeous outfits everyone had on. Nalinie looked incredible in her first red and gold outfit and I couldn't wait to see her entrance and experience my first Hindu ceremony- which was beautiful and so lovely to be a part of.

Afterwards there was a great Indian buffet lunch, then Nal and Chris went to get changed for the second ceremony of the day! Whilst guests played garden games and enjoyed the sunshine.

Again Nalinie looked simply stunning in her elegant white gown, and Chris didn't scrub up too bad either! ;) Chris's very talented sister Sarah made all the floral creations for the day which were so, so pretty. 

After the civil ceremony, drinks and canapés flowed and everyone enjoyed the scorcher of a day in the gardens at Poundon House. It was incredibly relaxed and such a nice atmosphere to be around.

An indian buffet dinner was served and after the speeches the party began!

What an incredible day to have been a part of. Thank you so much Nalinie and Chris for having us and making us feel so welcome all day. We loved every second of capturing your perfect day!

Thanks to Emma Gosling for being an awesome second Photographer again :)
