Civil Wedding

Shveta and Kieran’s civil wedding at Stoke Park

To sum up Shveta and Kieran’s civil wedding in three words, it would be sophisticated, classy and refined. As time has gone on, we have learnt that Shveta is a bit of a perfectionist, and her civil wedding day was really no exception. Every detail on the day was thought out and executed to precision. Having photographed Shveta’s sister’s wedding (Nivedita & Varun), we really weren’t expecting anything less! It’s probably worth adding Shveta is one of the creative brains behind her families catering business Poonams and her very own cake business Akito Blush.

We often meet families who treat us like one of their own, and the Sharma’s and extended family did exactly that. We can definitely say that after covering three weddings and multiple other ceremonies in the last few years.

The couple chose Stoke Park in Buckinghamshire for the civil wedding ceremony, it was an intimate affair for both families nearest and dearest, which is just the way we like it. Stoke Park is Europe’s leading 5 AA Red Star Country Club, Spa and Hotel and is set among 300 acres of glorious parkland, lakes, historic gardens and monuments created over the past one thousand years. It is a private estate and there is no public footpaths, or right of way access anywhere over the 300 acres so you know this venue has a lot of unspoilt natural beauty and we’re glad to be one of the photographers to have photographed there.

Kieran the handsome groom looked dashing on the day and was just like his personality, smooth, sophisticated and careful with his words (he’s a lawyer you see). Shveta looked amazing in her beautiful show stopping white gown, and looked every inch the perfect bride. The makeup maestro Rani Bhogal made Shveta look absolutely beautiful, we are pretty certain she has magic in her hands 🙂

I’d also like to thank to Rima and Guv for stepping in and helping me photograph this beautiful civil wedding. I wasn’t actually sure I would be able to shoot on the day, as I had been pretty ill for about a month before, but luckily I managed to pull through!

Hope you enjoy the images as much as we do and we look forward to your feedback.
