Asian wedding photography in Gloucestershire – Matara

Indian weddings are always fabulous and great fun. It’s probably a cliché to talk about the amazing colours but it’s true. They are energetic, relaxed, colourful and the food is well, just awesome. When you stage an Indian wedding at a place like Matara, one of the best Gloucestershire wedding venues it’s going to be a wedding to remember.

Best Indian Wedding Photography

Harri and Ranj were a total dream to work with. They were chilled. laid back and a joy to be around. Harri’s sister made the cake and Dad helped decorate it. I asked why there were dinosaurs on the cake as it was a tropical theme. I didn’t see the link but apparently Harri just loved dinosaurs so that was that. As I said the theme was tropical so the bridesmaids wore little slip tops and sari skirts. Unfortunately, even though it was May, it was freezing. There were two outdoor ceremonies. One civil ceremony around the Japanese pond and then a short walk to the woods for a more personal ceremony led by Harri’s sister Durga. After those we did the formal line ups around the lake. Finally the bridesmaids who had goosebumps and had turned from blue to red could get inside and warm up.

Spring wedding at Matara

This was the first wedding we had a tortoise as a ringbearer. Everyone loved little Ravitoto, he/she (who knows?) was carried to the couple on a cushion. In the evening everyone made paper boats to launch into the pond afer which the cake was cut and the party in the Hilarium started.

We truly love Matara it is one of our favourite wedding venues in the UK. Who couldn’t love a venue with a room called The Hilarium?

Here are 50 of the best wedding images at Matara from Harri & Ranj’s wedding.
