Chhaya and Joe’s Sikh Sperry Tent Wedding

A Sikh Wedding in Henley Upon Thames

When you strip it all back, weddings are about celebrating the love between two people, and this wedding was planned in such a way that nothing got in the way of that. Not even some pretty heavy summer showers!  Chhaya and Joe (and their wedding planner Andri) did a fantastic job of ensuring that not only the bride and groom had a fantastic day, but that every family member and guest from young to old were able to let their hair down, slide across the dancefloor on their knees, and dance like no one was watching (apart from me). This wedding was a truly modern and informal celebration that involved the whole family. Chhaya and Joe didn’t want any fuss when it came to their photography either, which meant that I was able to focus on the moments, reactions, tears and laughter that were to be seen all around. In fact there was way too much going on for just me to photograph and I’m grateful to Dan Wimble for second shooting this one with me.

The Sikh wedding ceremony took place in the sperry tent (due to the rain) followed by an informal drinks reception and barbecue dinner. Emotional speeches and a packed dance floor were to follow and the rest, as they say, is history.
