Regency Hall Bradford Wedding Photography | Fal & Shaan | Asian Wedding Photographer Bradford
Regency Hall Bradford Wedding Photography. My first time as an Asian Wedding photographer at Regency Hall in Bradford was quite an experience. It’s sometimes easy to slip into the rhythm of wedding photography. We see the same traditions weekend in, weekend out. Last Saturday was a privilege to be part of something both completely different and inspiring.
I met Fal over a year ago at the Brides Up North Denton Hall wedding fair. She funnily enough wasn’t engaged at that time, just super excited to get married! Soon enough, Shaan proposed to Fal, and I received my call of duty.
Fully aware of the challenges of an Asian wedding, I wanted to document their day moment by moment, picturing all the energy, colour and chaos… It was like I took a breath at 9am, then finally exhaled at 7pm! It was a complete buzz of energy from every angle. Densely crowded scenes of vibrant colours and patterns in between all the hundreds of faces made for images I’d never taken before.
I’ve never photographed such powerful emotion either. In Islam, the bride on her wedding day traditionally leaves her family home that night and moves to her new husband’s home. The Rukhsat is the Bride’s final goodbye before getting in the car. It was an intensely emotional farewell, and quite heart wrenching to observe. Both myself and second shooter Lily North were completely moved by the acts of love we were capturing.
The day wasn’t without one big challenge, which was having 8 videographers working around you at the same time. However it was pretty cool to work alongside videographer, Ramsey of Team Orion who literally set the rings on fire in the morning for a video. So credit goes to him for that one! Don’t think I’ve got the balls to do that myself hah!
