Background Information and Highlights:

Our bride and groom chose the beautiful Hedsor House Taplow Buckinghamshire for their Hindu wedding ceremony and reception.

Hedsor House has featured in many movies and TV features and no wonder - it is just so gorgeous in every way. Interesting varied interior features lovingly maintained to an excellent standard. Extensive colourful gardens brimming with features, mature trees, plus huge lawns running away into the quintessentially English home counties countryside.

Hedsor House is located just a stones throw from Maidenhead Berkshire and is easily accessible from the M4 and M40 motorways. There is plenty of free parking onsite.

The coverage started with our brides party a couple of days before the wedding day. Henna, dancing. All that might be expected. The weather on this summer evening let us down badly - it would have been so nice to venture outside but the rain was so heavy that might have risked drowning!

Moving on to the actual wedding day, there was a small informal civil wedding ceremony a few hours before the main Asian wedding, just to get the legal formalities out of the way. The registrars on duty from the nearby Beaconsfield Register Office were as always an absolute pleasure to work with.

Then it was time for the main event, the Hindu wedding ceremony. Plan A was to have the ceremony outside on the lawns but again the weather was not playing nice. In fact the weather snookered us time and again during the day with blustery winds and heavy downpours meaning that we were not able to make as much use of the grounds as we all would have liked. Oh well. So Plan B it was - the splendid main hall inside Hedsor House and that worked great. So photogenic!

The photo highlights below start with the evening party before the wedding day:
