UK wide & Destination weddings

Pre-wedding celebrations // Mendhi 

Indian Destination wedding photography by S. Romel // British South Asian wedding photographer, based in Birmingham, UK – working with families of all backgrounds. Everywhere. 

I shot Anikka’s Bohra Nikkah celebration in London back in summer 2012. A year later she emails me the following:

“How are you? Hope you are well.  I’m just emailing you – as a long-shot! My brother is getting married in October/November in Sri Lanka. They are looking for a photographer. I don’t suppose you know anyone who is interested in destination weddings … ”

And that’s how I got my first international wedding gig. Thank you for all your help, support and trust Anikka and co. Massive thank you to Encia and Toffek for being brilliant throughout. This was so much easier to plan, organise and shoot than I thought it would be and that was 100% down this wonderful couple, their families and friends. If you came across post because you are looking for a wedding photographer, stick around and have browse. If you like what you see – then by all means get in touch. I cover weddings all over the UK and I would be happy to travel abroad too.

Video was covered by Siyak Seenu. Big thanks for Dinu and his team at Siyak Seenu for all their help too. Their work is amazing. Incredible story tellers.
