UK wide & Destination weddings

Destination Indian wedding photography by S. Romel Photography. Shot in Arusha, Tanzania & Nairobi and Mombasa, Kenya. Made in Birmingham, UK.

Virali got in touch with me back in November after finding me on twitter. This was just a couple of days after I got back from Sri Lanka. We exchanged a few emails to see if I was the right photographer for this job, then arranged a skype meeting and before I knew it, I was on my way to East Africa.

There is way too many people to mention so a big thank you to everyone for being really “safe”, as we say in the UK. You guys made me feel really welcomed. Cheers to Virali and Punil for having faith in me and being such a good sport all the way through. It was good to be able to work like this. We became a solid team and also good friends. Finally, nice one to Punil’s best mate Shazar Anwar for driving me from Nairobi to Mombasa then back to Nairobi just in time for my flight back home. You sir, is a legend.


I work on weddings all over the UK but happy to travel abroad, any excuse to get away from the cold. If you are having a destination Indian / South Asian marriage in Africa, India or anywhere please have a look around my website – there is more wedding stories, and if you like what you see – get in touch. Lets work together and to make something special.

Soundtrack: Tum Hi Ho – Aashiqui 2

This tune’s been used in South Asian / Indian weddings many times over. Here’s is my take on it. Hit play below and enjoy Punil and Virali’s wedding story. Feel free to leave a message/comment below. Cheers.

{ The first look at an Indian wedding }

I have been meaning to do this for awhile but never actually had the chance to. This is basically the first time the bride and groom get to see each other all dressed up on their wedding day, away from the crowd and before the actual ceremony. Luckily. Punil and Virali were very welcoming to any ideas/suggestions I had. Including the first look.

Right after Virali got ready on the day of the wedding, I arranged for Punil to be nearby looking away. Then I had Virali entering the scene. The rest is all them. The emotions, the look, the watery eyes. All real. These two are in love and it shows. I wouldn’t dare interrupt a moment like this, I just made sure I had them in the light I needed them to be in. It worked out well, I hope. Without sounding all cliche, I really wan them to cherish these images for a lifetime. vp-web-wedding-8vp-web-wedding-9 vp-web-wedding-10 vp-web-wedding-11 vp-web-wedding-12 vp-web-wedding-13 vp-web-wedding-14 vp-web-wedding-15 vp-web-wedding-16 vp-web-wedding-17 vp-web-wedding-18 vp-web-wedding-19 vp-web-wedding-20 vp-web-wedding-21

The beach was a perfect backdrop for this wedding. It was beautiful.

Also: I love that ring-on-the-leaf shot.
