PK was late for our first meeting in London. He is a vascular surgeon so I guess he is excused! 🙂 This gave Amy an opportunity to explain how PK has often bragged about his dancing prowess as an awesome Krumper! She had decided to call him on his boast by hiring a professional Krumper with the intention of getting PK up in front of the whole wedding party to perform with the pro. So, a secret plan had been hatched. From this point on I knew that this wedding was going to be a party and a half.
The civil and hindu ceremonies both took place at The Grove. The grove is a big wedding venue and has a spa and golf course attached and was able to cope with the hundreds of friends and family that came to the two ceremonies.There were two getting ready sessions to photographs too as Amy changed into traditional dress for the second ceremony in the ballroom.
Once the formalities were over the party began in style. Food. Cake cutting. Speeches. Oh, the best man’s speech! The speech was awesome and I can remember a very nervous Best Man preparing beforehand, speech in hand, pacing the corridors outside the ballroom. There was really no need for nerves though he was sooooo funny and dry with it.
Then came the dancing. Everyone was on top form including the little kids and I hope you get the feel for the party from the shots I have included in the blog post. PK was really taken aback when the professional dancer bounced in and it was a real challenge to be the best photographer possible to get the fast-paced flips, rolls, pushing, shoving, crowd participation and general mayhem that ensued. Have a look at the shot at the end of the post with the dancer upside down by way of an example. I love the look on Amy’s face and some of the other expressions from folk in the crowd that gathered to see it all.
