Asian Weddings at Northbrook Park
Philip and Manni’s wedding at the stunning Northbook Park was one of 2015’s highlights, not only because of the location, but also because it included both Western and Hindu traditions. This kind of ‘hybrid’ wedding, for want of a better expression, lends so many creative opportunities to wedding photographers. But more of that later! First, let’s talk about the venue!
The Venue- Northbrook Park
This breath-taking venue is located just outside of Farnham on the borders of Surrey and Hampshire. We had the pleasure of shooting there in 2014 and immediately fell in love with it. Set in 120 acres of stunning grounds, it also offers some wonderful indoor locations too, including one of the lightest and brightest ceremony rooms we’ve ever shot in. It’s great when a venue offers fantastic locations both inside and out, and this means that you have scope for contingency plans in the case of heavy rain too. One of the more quirky aspects of Northbrook Park is the fact that it is home to a group of peacocks too. As a photographer you often find yourself framing up a shot only to find a peacock walking into frame!
Philip and Manni are such a lovely couple, with such a laid-back fun loving approach to life. For their wedding day they wanted to combine the best of both Western and Asian wedding traditions, but with an overall relaxed and fun feel to everything. We were lucky enough to cover both their Western ceremony and also the Hindu ceremony too. Hindu ceremonies are wonderful to cover from a photographic point of view, but do require a really sustained level of concentration.
In the end, due to the amount of coverage required on such a day, we shot for 12 hours, and from a purely selfish point of view we were really pleased this was the case- you just wouldn’t want to miss any aspects of such a wonderful wedding day!
We really hope you love this selection of photos from their wedding day, and hope you love the look of this wonderful venue!
