Personalising your wedding can include as many or as few aspects of yourselves as you’d like… for Vicky and Sachin, they chose to include so many things they loved, and their day was full of fun and special touches because of it!
On the Friday they had a Hindu ceremony to celebrate Sachin’s heritage and traditions, then on the Sunday they had their Anglo-Asian fusion wedding (which we’re sharing with you lovely folks today). Photographer Ayshea Goldberg told me it was amazing! “They spent a lot of time and effort making this incredible. Vicky got ready at her family home and then they married in her family’s village church, then headed back to the home for a marquee in the garden celebration. The colour scheme was rich golds and reds and the tables were decorated and named for productions that have a close connection with Vicky – she’s an actress! She and Sachin work so well together and their families are brilliant. They did an incredible entrance to the wedding breakfast with Vicky and Sachin’s brothers, and each set of parents coming in to their choice of song, and then Vicky and Sachin coming in to Led Zeppelin – Whole lotta love. It was awesome and they all got a standing ovation before the speeches even started.”
Wedding photographer’s website:
We met Ayshea Goldberg at a wedding fayre. She was incredibly approachable, presented some fantastic displays of her wedding photography, and made the whole process so easy.
We couldn’t have asked for anything more! My husband hates posing for photos and seems to lose any ability to smile when a camera is in front of him, so neither of us wanted anything really staged, yet Ayshea captured some beautiful snapshots of us throughout the day. Even the portraits have a lovely natural quality to them.
Ayshea presented a slideshow of our wedding photos to different music, and this really allowed the whole family to re-live our special day. It took me right back to my wedding day and made me want to do it all again!
