Ria Sai | Married | Manor of Groves Wedding

A few weeks ago I shot Ria and Sai’s wedding at the Manor of Groves in Essex. A little bit of a background first…Ria and Sai booked without even having  met me and this was a first for me. We spoke on the phone a few times and it felt as if I was speaking to friends. I’m so glad they did book and their wedding was simply beautiful. It pretty much rained all day (except for when we shot the portraits), but that didn’t dampen the day one little bit.

We did finally meet about a week before the wedding for a brief engagement session and it rained that day too, except for about 15 mins before the sun went down. They said they were super nervous in front of the camera and they probably were at first but when it came to the big day, you wouldn’t have noticed.

Ria looked absolutely stunning and Sai was on form with his attire too. Custom designed outfits is the way to go! One of the funniest moments was definitely Sai wearing the wrong shoes (a few sizes too big) at his entrance, out of fear they would be stolen by the brides family straight away (One of the traditions on a wedding day). The day ended with a kick ass reception with a few games on the dance floor that were simply epic!

Congratulations you two and all the best for the future!


Congratulations Ria and Sai!

Oh YES, Sachin! I was looking forward to this, and it hasn’t disappointed. So many great pictures! Wonderful coverage, I’m not surprised they so readily booked you. x

Great work, Sachin! I really like your perspectives during the ceremony. What a beautiful wedding!

Great work! Love the vibrant colours – excellent!

awesome shooting dude!

Gorgeous!! Stunning colors, of course, and I love all the dance action you captured.

So jealous of all the colors!

beautiful coverage sachin! i love the dancing shots, they look like they’re having so much fun!

Amazing wedding, Sachin. That shot of the grass with the bride blurry in the background literally made me do a double-take.

Not fair that you get awesome weddings all the time!

Oh wow, that head shot of her underneath the one of the groom, and above the black and white, is just amazing, the soft bokeh in front and her beautiful eyes behind, it’s fantastic.

Love the colors. Love the traditions. Love the fun. Love the photos. Especially love the photos.

Elegance and Grace in plenty!

These are stunning! Beautiful work!
