14 May Asian wedding at Royal Courts of Justice.
Asian Wedding Photography for Bipasha and Andrew.
On this beautiful sunny Saturday we headed off for the Royal Courts of Justice Asian wedding ceremony for Bipasha and Andrew. This was a full Hindu ceremony to be held in the magnificent Royal Courts of Justice on the Strand. In total over 400 guests were treated to unrestricted access to their fabulous Great Hall and the galleries that surround it. The Great Hall is a perfect venue for an Asian wedding as there is so much space and such a fabulous high ceiling that it feels beautifully open and airy even with so many guests. As you will have seen on our previous blog Bipasha and Andrew held their legal ceremony the day before at the Kensington Roof Gardens, so this day was all about celebrating and embracing the Hindu traditions of marriage. Our day started with Bipasha getting ready in a Jury room just off of the Great Hall. Andrew arrived a little later and was welcomed by the women from Bipasha’s family.
The ceremony itself was very intense and we certainly needed two photographers to cover each element of the day as it unfolded as it was a challenge to get the best positions amongst the very enthusiastic guests. We were grateful to have 20 minutes in the Painted Room and amongst the various balconies and sweeping staircases which are a wonderful feature of the Royal Courts of Justice. All the other guests were taken to the bar set up in the Costume Gallery whilst the team led by Berna and Claire reset the hall for a 400 people sit down feast.
We have been fortunate to photograph some pretty fantastic venues and cover a wide variety of wedding styles. But wow, I have to say this Royal Courts of Justice Wedding in the Great Hall was extraordinary and moves effortlessly into our top 10 wedding venues. The food was supplied by Premier Rouge Ltd and overseen by their events manager Jay Bharadia. We would highly recommend them, the feast they supplied was first class and seamlessly delivered. We’re not sure who supplied the disco, but it was the best we’ve ever experienced, as you can imagine the Hall is huge and needed something mighty powerful to full the space with sound. All in all, a top wedding and if you are planning your own own Asian wedding at The Royal Courts of Justice, please don’t hesitate to get in touch, we could photograph in there every day and still love it !
