Bride and groom inside Indian style arches

We were really honored that we were chosen to document Jas and Amrit’s Sikh wedding at the beautiful Gurdwara (Sikh temple) Sri Guru Nanak Darbar Gurdwara, Gravesend, Kent. We had such an awesome time covering all of their wedding events, that we were sad when it all ended!

You could say both sides of the family are into drink… one being alcoholic and the other being the good white stuff… Milk! Amrit’s family own a dairy in the Midlands and Jas’s family own a mobile bar hire company…so you could say the love of drink bought the two together?!

The wedding itself was HUGE! In terms of number of guests, it was probably the biggest wedding we had covered back in 2012, luckily the venue at the City Pavilion catered for everyone’s needs. Both sides of the family were so welcoming, and we really felt part of the family. The makeup master himself, Dil Matharu made Jas look a million dollars and Amrit looked liked the perfect handsome gentleman. They had such an awesome wedding reception and both were beaming in happiness.

We wish you the world of happiness together Amrit and Jas … the world is your oyster 🙂

We hope everyone enjoys the images as much as we do! We wish we could have posted more images, but we were afraid of everyone getting finger ache from scrolling down the page too much!

ENJOY!

Johara Photography stand at the Asiana Bridal Show 2013

Johara Photography stand at the Asiana Bridal Show 2013To say we are still recovering from the Asiana Bridal Show at the Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel is a little bit of an understatement, we still think it will take a good few days yet to recover from the madness!

The day started off really well, with our stand getting so many compliments from visitors and other exhibitors. We really hope the artwork we had on display gave a small indication of what our work is all about. We really can’t believe how quick the day went, although 10 hours seems a long time, but when you are speaking about what you love and what you are passionate about, hours seem like minutes! The day itself was so busy, and supercharged, we managed to meet some awesome couples, and we were able to speak about their special day in some depth, which was really nice, and we got to meet some family members too!

The albums we provide also got an awesome reception, everyone seemed to love our clean, modern and contemporary designs.

We really had a hard time choosing which images to use for our artwork display, as we have loved every single wedding from 2012, and we have loved all of our couples too. It’s a shame we couldn’t show all of our favourite images from all of our couples from last year, but hey maybe next year at the Asiana Exhibition, we can have a bigger stall! 🙂

We have a sneaky feeling this year, and beyond is going to get even better. We love our work, we love we get to be a part of your special day, and we love seeing your joy when you see our images, now we can’t get better than that can we?!

We still can’t believe we had the privilege of meeting a young lady called Johara too … if you don’t know already, Johara is Arabic for Jewel 🙂

Asiana Bridal Show 2013

We really can’t believe its that time of year again…the months seem to fly by every year, but in the month of January it can only mean one thing…. The Asiana Bridal Show 2013!

The Asiana Bridal Show is the most prestigious bridal show in the UK, with over 100 exhibitors at the show, you will be guaranteed to find the best Asian wedding service providers in the country.

The show itself will be held on Sunday 27th January 2013 at the elegant Park Plaza Riverbank Hotel, on the Albert Embankment. We will be located at stand 330, on the Ballroom Level, which was exactly where we were last year!

On the day itself, you will be able to meet the Johara team, see our lovely artwork and will be able to browse through our beautiful albums. During last years Asiana exhibition, we really enjoyed the fact that we were able to talk in depth with our clients, and really got a feel as to what they wanted in terms of their photography for their wedding events. We have to say the best thing about the Asiana show, is being able to meet such a variety of different couples! It really is YOU who we thrive from, your personalities, your friends, your family, and the love between you!  We were left totally buzzing from the last Asiana Bridal Show, so we are expecting to feel exactly the same this year, if not even better!

We have been very busy preparing for the best Asian Bridal show this side of Europe, so we really can’t wait to see you there, especially to show you what we have been up to!

The count down is on, we’d LOVE to see you there!

Team Johara 🙂

Johara stand

Johara stand

The Asiana Wedding Exhibition 2012 took place at the Riverbank Plaza Hotel on the Albert Embankment on the 29th January. It certainly was a jam packed, super busy and super charged day for the Johara team! We really enjoyed the buzz and the pure excitement of the day, and it was amazing to meet so many different people. We loved the fact that we were able to interact with potential clients, and got a real feel of what they wanted for their special day, and we were able to show off our lovely albums too 🙂

Although we had a small stand, we would like to think we made an impact on the day, our Johara colours stood proud! We were also so glad that our childhood sweets were a hit, including the popping candy, which went down a treat!

Big thank you to all friends and family who came to show their support, it definately did not go un-noticed.

Until next time! 😉

Janhvi and Meeraj in Italy

Janhvi and Meeraj in Italy

Sun, Sea and stone beach? We were extremely lucky that we were chosen to capture the civil wedding of Janhvi and Meeraj in the picture perfect Sorrento, Italy.  It truely was a beautiful location, almost as lovely as Jahnvi and Meeraj 🙂

The feel of Sorrento was so full of love, warmth and it oozed character with a strong Italian heritage. The cobbled streets, the Lemonchello drink, the amazing ice-cream parlour’s, literally everything about this quaint and beautiful town were truly spectacular, and it gave us a stunning background to work with.

Although on the morning of the civil wedding, it rained like cat’s and dogs, literally moments before the ceremony was about to start, the sun started to shine. Although it was hazy to begin with, the weather turned out to be beautiful.

Janhvi and Meeraj were lovely to work with, and we wish them every luck and success in their lives together.

Enjoy the photos.

Asiana Bridal Show 2012

So, here we go again for another year of amazing, beautiful and thought provoking wedding photography! We simply can’t wait to kick start this year with a bang, and to start us off nicely we have decided to do the annual Asiana Bridal Show at the Park Plaza Riverside Hotel, London.

The event itself will be held on Sunday 29th January 2012, and will be presented by Madhu’s catering and Sunrise Radio. The event attracts around 12,000 spectators, so we are expected to have lost our voices by the end of the day!

We will be situated on the Ballroom floor, so please do come and say hello to the Johara team to have a look at our most recent work, or maybe just to have a chin wag!

We simply can’t wait for the Exhibition, a lot of time, blood, sweat and tears (well maybe not the tear’s!) has gone into ensuring the day runs as smoothly as possible.

We hope to see some of you there!
