Parveen and Joe – Epsom Downs Wedding Photographer

When I first received Joseph’s email several months ago, I had to admit that I initially thought it was spam. Deciding to give it a thorough reading after a while, I discovered that it told the story of a Texas-born man who had his eyes set on marrying a Muslim woman from the UK at Epsom Downs. I confess when I read their story I thought my friends were trying to play a trick on me and it was only three days later when I realised that what I had in my inbox was a serious inquiry. Considering the distance, the meetings that went on from that point on were mostly over Skype. When I first met Parveen, it was her warm smile that made a huge impression. She shared her plans with me over chat and I was thankful of the trust that was given to me.

The story basically began when Joe and Parveen met three years ago as English teachers in the UK. What started out as common passion for teaching gradually blossomed into romance. One could say that Joe’s love for silly jokes matched perfectly with Parveen’s warm and tolerant persona, so it seems that calling each other their other halves is rightfully the case.

When I finally met Joe and Praveen in person, it was already during the last weeks of June and we were on our way to their pre-wedding shoot in a London Park. That night, my assistant, Mrs. Niki, and I met with the couple for a meeting discussing the creative engagement photography session. I always make use of this time to talk to the couple and discuss their vision when it comes to the photography on their wedding day. Parveen informed me of their preference for natural-looking pictures – moments captured naturally – which we proceeded to include in the photos we took.

The day brought beautiful weather, so we managed to capture more dramatic photographs for variety, which the couple loved. The photography session was wrapped up and everything was prepared for the big day. The day of the wedding came and I arrived early in the morning to the house of Parveen’s parents for the bridal preparation. Parveen was glowing with happiness, which made the whole shoot easier.

It was a pleasure to witness Joe and Parveen as they made their vows to each other. The father of the groom shared his words of wisdom and the couple exchanged rings as a symbol of their love and devotion. It was then followed by a declaration that they will live happily ever after as man and wife. Joe and Parveen’s wedding reception was held at Epsom Down Racecourse. The atmosphere was that of relaxation and guests were treated to lovely canapés soon after they arrived at the venue. The newlyweds made their first dance as husband and wife at Bourne Hall and it was also where the wedding breakfast was observed.

While I am aware that a number of people weren’t able to attend the wedding because of the distance; I had high hopes that the photographs captured moments and stories on Joe and Praveen’s big day.

To close this off, I would like to extend my thanks to Bernard, my assistant, for his efforts throughout the day. I would also like to express my gratitude to Joe and Parveen’s families for their warm welcome. I felt privileged as Joseph and Parveen’s wedding photographer at Epsom Down as well as in their reception at Bourne Hall.
