I know from personal experience that weddings can pass by in a flash. Shonalee & Steve solved that problem by having not one but two weddings on consecutive days at the start of April. The first was a small civil ceremony and reception at the beautiful Forty Hall Estate in Enfield, followed by a huge Indian extravaganza at the KP Hall in Harrow.

Forty Hall is a beautiful house set inside a country park and with a dedicated wedding facility. The whole day was a small and intimate affair from the ceremony through to reception and speeches. There was some lovely acoustic music throughout and Shonalee & Steve managed to get some time away in the ornamental gardens and grounds of the country house.

Any thoughts that guests might hold back on the dance floor ahead of a big second day of wedding proceedings were much misplaced as the party was very much in full swing until the end of the evening.

After the wedding I received these wonderfully kind words from Shonalee & Steve:

“Picking a photographer you get on with is so important. Richard spent the most part of 2 whole days with myself and my husband Steve at our civil and our Indian wedding, and we had the best time ever! Richard felt like a friend and definitely a major part of the whole wedding experience by the end. 

When you have a 2 day wedding you end up with thousands of pictures and the amount of hard work that Richard put in, for weeks after the wedding, was amazing. We absolutely love our pictures!! ❤️

I’m constantly jealous when I see other peoples wedding pictures by Richard now because I want to have my wedding all over again. And if I did, I would pick Richard every single time. Without a doubt.

The pictures are the only thing from the wedding that will literally last a lifetime and to us the pictures are perfect!

Thank you so much for being there and for all your hard work! (Getting all emotional writing this now, embarrassing!)

Lots of love,

Shonalee and Steve”
