Martin and Shalini chose the delightful country mansion Horwood House near Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, for their civil marriage ceremony, Mauritius ceremony and wedding reception. Although the weather on their big day was mainly overcast, the conditions were ideal for shooting the portraits and group photos in the grounds. They booked Colours Photos and Film to do their Mauritius Wedding Photography Milton Keynes. As a professional wedding photographer, I always like to hunt out shaded locations as the results are so much better than when shooting in bright sunlight.
The day before their wedding day, Shalini had her Haldi ceremony in a Mauritian style at their home in Milton Keynes. Her family traveled from Mauritius for the couples big day.
Civil weddings are almost always relatively short and so professional wedding photographers have to be on their toes to ensure that as wide a selection of photos as possible, including all the key moments, are captured in the time available. This was certainly the case at this wedding where there was so much happening in the day.
The Mauritius wedding ceremony was conducted by Pandit Vasudev Mehta inside the mandap which is the four pillared canopy that you see centrestage in the photos below. The four pillars symbolise Shalini and Martin’s parents and the importance they have played in raising them.
After the Mauritius ceremony, the couple and guest got ready the evening reception which was a light-hearted and informal end to a very special day.
