If black and white photography is your thing then look away now because Ben and Yaso’s Wedding on Saturday 30th June was an explosion of colour from start to finish and looking for Contemporary & Stylish Photography, I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph their wedding held at Highfield Church in Southampton. The bridesmaids in a rainbow of complimentary coloured saris, a marquee decorated to the hilt, the Wedding Party’s suits and of course the change into traditional Sri Lankan dress halfway through their day in every colour you can think of, all absolutely beautiful only outdone by the beautiful bride herself, Yaso!
Despite being 2 of the busiest people I have met, Ben and Yaso planned their big day to perfection and I think everyone would agree they made an amazing job of it. The joyous celebration of their marriage in Highfield Church with the fantastic Catherine leading the service was fabulous and I must make a special mention to Ben’s sisters and dad who performed the most beautiful song to the congregation whilst the registers were being signed, I am getting goosebumps even now remembering it, thank you! Afterwards we headed to their magnificent marquee reception in Tatchbury Mount and enjoyed being entertained by more singing, magicians and balloon makers and a great caricaturist in preparation for the fabulous traditional meal.
After heartfelt speeches from both the bride and groom’s dads, their gorgeous Chief Bridesmaid, Ben and Yaso and of course the Best Man Tom, Ben and Yaso took to the dance floor in their traditional Sri Lankan dress and under a shower of confetti enjoyed their first dance as husband and wife. With around 400 people invited to celebrate with Ben and Yaso I am pleased to thank my good friend and fabulous Photographer Kevin Belson for all his help during the day and am pleased to share a few images with you all before Ben and Yaso’s wedding gallery goes live on the 10th July.
Very best of luck in your married life together Ben and Yaso, thank you so much for choosing me to be a part of your big day and I hope you love the images as much as we enjoyed taking them!
