BUCKINGHAMSHIRE TIPI WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

Tasha & James had glorious weather for their magical evening wedding ceremony at Chearsley, Bucks. They opted for tipi tents, and these beautiful structures reached for the sky with elegant timeless simplicity whilst harmonising with the idyllic countryside surroundings. Inside was stylish and comfortable,with the two large open fires adding warmth and a stunning glow.

Now take all the above ingredients and add a lively Indian wedding ceremony, a great bunch of friends and family, lots of laughter, amazing food, gorgeous vibrant colours, a live band, and some action packed high octane dancing, and wow! 

The wedding day started with two traditional pre-wedding functions, the Mendhi and the Pithi ceremony. It was great seeing the huge smiles on every relative and friend’s face as they are let loose on the couple dousing raw eggs and so much more onto their faces! After the ceremony Tasha and James cleaned up beautifully and partied the night away with friends and family.

The evening's entertainment was my favourite part of the day, with so many wedding guests of all ages diving on the dance floor to join in with the high tempo Raas Garba partying and dancing! Raas Garba is of Gujarati origin and Gujarati weddings are incomplete without this dance. Women usually do this dance, although men are welcome to participate. Raas Garba is performed in groups, with each group dancing in circles whilst performing well-coordinated dance steps. 

This was one unbelievable wedding, it had Tasha & James's personalities written all over it!

Congratulations to you both, and for staging one of the most memorable weddings I've ever attended! Tasha and James certainly looked every bit the perfect husband and wife. 

Here are a selection of my favourite images from the day:

Enjoy your week!
