To 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 🙂
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 🙂
Ever since we started to use Sim Imaging for our personalised guestbooks they have been an instant hit with all of our couples. Considering the guestbooks can bring a beautiful, unique and personalised edge to your wedding, and the fact that the guest books themselves are skilfully and exquisitely made, it’s really not hard to see why they are so popular.
Here at Johara Photography, we can offer a bespoke, personalised guestbook which can showcase a selection of your pre wedding shoot photos. A guestbook is a great way to firstly show case your stunning images to your guests and it’s also an opportunity to intertwine your images with a wedding keepsake which will last you a lifetime.
You will have a handful of physical ‘things’ that will last you a life time after your big day, one of them being your wedding bands, the second being your wedding album, so why not add a third item to the list to include a guestbook, which will have all the good wishes from your friends and family. Reading those messages of good wishes after your big day is always an amazing way to reminisce from one of the most memorable days in your lives together. The guestbook is a keepsake that you can share with your family for decades to come and you could even show your children or grandchildren when the time comes!
We love printing images, and as much as we enjoy showcasing our images online, they also look and feel even better in print. The contrast and depth of colours can really be displayed with attitude.
We were really pleased when Sim Imaging got in contact with us to tell us that they loved our images and would like to use the guestbook which we designed as one of their samples to use at their head office and at various wedding exhibitions. We have loved working with Sim Imaging, the quality and workmanship of their products is truly commendable, and every one of our couples who have had a guestbook from Sim Imaging has equally been pleased with the outcome.
This particular guestbook showcased the pre wedding shoot photos from one of our couples, Sunita & Kam. We have loved the images from the start, as we had incorporated Sunita & Kam’s edgy personalities into their shoot to really capture the couple’s individuality. We have often had comments from others asking whether we had used models for the shoot, but we can clarify we did not – we can just blame Sunita & Kam’s good looks (and our photography?!)
Below are a few pictures which Sim Imaging took for us. We hope you get a glimpse of how we can inspire your personalities into a well loved guestbook, which you will love for many years to come.
After the success of the Asiana Bridal Show, we think we got the Exhibition bug! Johara Photography will be exhibiting at the Bluewater Wedding Fair (Glow) from Thursday 9th February to Sunday 12th February 2012.
Why don’t you come down to one of the biggest and prestigious shopping centers in Europe and fix your retail therapy itch, grab some yummy food and then come down to the Wedding fair and see what there is to offer! It is guaranteed to be an exciting, luxurious and beautiful show from start to finish.
We are so excited to meet everyone at the show, its going to be a good one! See you there!
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! 😉
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!
