Allum Hall Wedding Photography | Parita & Kishan
Allum Hall Wedding Photography. The wedding of Parita and Kishan was doubly exciting.
Not only did it signify the start of life as newlyweds, but it also marked the beginning of a new life in Kenya for Parita.
Kishan lives and works in Nairobi, and after the wedding, Parita, who had previously lived in London, was set to join him.
Historic Allum Hall
The wedding took place at Allum Hall in Hertfordshire.
The civil ceremony took place in the historic Grade II listed Manor House.
There are no records available to determine the precise age of the building.
However, in 1830, Thomas Haworth bought the house for £1,500 and described it as “an ancient family house erected upwards of 100 years”.
If this estimate is accurate, it will make the building almost 300 years old today.
The ceremony took place in a small room, packed with friends and family, dressed in bright, beautiful outfits.
It wasn’t only the clothes that were vibrant. Parita was bouncing with so much playful energy it was difficult to keep her in the shot.
Thanks to some fun frame props, we did manage to capture some quirky pictures. Even when striking a more serious pose, Parita’s positivity and energy shone through.
The civil ceremony, necessary to make the marriage legally binding took place in the original building.
Afterwards, friends and family formed two lines outside and scattered the bride and groom with dried petal confetti.
Then the whole wedding party moved over to the main reception area for the second wedding ceremony, this time a traditional Hindu event.
As a Hertfordshire wedding photographer, I am fortunate to attend some genuinely lavish events.
But few will compare to the colours, sounds and fragrances at Parita and Kishan’s’s wedding.
With the formalities concluded it was time for the guest to be served with a delicious meal before the traditional speeches were delivered.
Thanks go to Parita and Kishan for inviting me to be part of such a spectacular wedding, and I wish them every luck in their new life in Nairobi.
