A summer wedding with a distinctly East meets West flavour

I was contacted by this lovely couple through Facebook, having been at Uni with the groom about 12 years ago.  It was great to make his re-acquaintance and meet his future wife during their pre-wedding shoot, and an absolute delight to travel to shoot their intimate wedding last summer.  This was an international affair, with guests from Eastern Europe, Russia and the bride’s family making the trip all the way from Uzbekistan.  The day started off pretty normally (as weddings go) – the bride had found a fantastic vintage style wedding dress, there was a lovely vintage car. Later in the day saw some traditional Uzbek wedding costumes and food at the wedding reception. Here are a selection of my favourite photographs, telling the story of this couple’s lovely wedding day.
