Indian wedding Vermilion Grand suite Manchester

Dipti & Habibs Indian wedding celebrations were at Vermilion hall Manchester. Vermilion is located on Hulme Hall Lane. Right in the heart of Manchester. Close to Manchester City football club, the Manchester Velodrome  including Sport City, Manchester.

Vermilion is a three-floor function suite. This is perfect for Indian wedding functions. Because it has different sized venue spaces. All three designed by Miguel Cancio Martins. The Grand suite, Alan Turing room, The Abacus gallery. The Grand site function room has the capacity for up to 750 people, the biggest wedding hall here at Vermilion. A perfect venue for this Indian couple.

Indian wedding groom prep Stockport Greater Manchester

Groom prep was at Habibs family home in Stockport Greater Manchester just off the A6. A short journey for the Baraat back to City centre Manchester and Vermilion in Sport City. I was assisting David Stubbs Manchester wedding photographer. David was covering sangeet, with the bride. My journalistic assignment Indian wedding photography, Groom prep. Naturally captured, with no stopping or posing whatsoever.

Weather for the day was wall to wall blue sky. I would need some high shutter speeds to prevent overexposure of the highlights here in Stockport.

The Groom looked smart in his sherwani and churidas

The groom looked smart in his wedding  jacket – called a Sherwani. Matching over fitted trousers called churidas; besides Shoes or loafers, called Mojari. Part way into his dressing Habib got piccalilli on his sherwani looking for food in the fridge. Moments all preserved for the wedding image gallery.  Spot in the images Mum scrubbing with vanish to get the stain off, almost bringing her mehndi henna off. Moreover, the moments turned into beautiful wedding photography. A pictorial record, documentary Indian wedding photography by Manchester wedding photographer Simon Croot. Finally a traditional turban, or Safa to finish the Grooms dressing. This has a brooch called a Kalgi which symbolises respect. So, I watched observed and caught these special moments to camera; nothing is posed. Naturally taken wedding photographic style I love. Because it produces natural images, never to be repeated.

Baraat to Vermilion

The wedding limousine for baraat to Vermilion was the Grooms relations Porsche. As a result, decorative limousine ribbon was needed for the baraat transport. I accompanied the best man  to a Wedding florist for the ribbon.

Onward journey to Vermilion Manchester, and candid natural photography as the wedding guests gather outside Vermilion. Moreover, every frame I take is unposed and natural in every way. Vibrant saris fill the cameras viewfinder, beautiful photogenic traditional Indian attire to celebrate a couple about to cement their marriage.

The Bridal Procession 100 guests and 100 Frames to the memory card

The Bridal procession was not with a doli, but 100 guests. Therefore, the family arranged a drum procession. as the doors opened to Vermilions Grand suite the cameras shutter captured 100’s of frames to the memory card. Photographing the 100 guests as they danced towards Vermilion’s Grand suite Stage and the Groom.

The Bride wearing red which in Indian wedding tradition,  connecting it to the rising sun. Because Mars the planet according to astrology is in-charge of marriage plus its red in colour too. Brides in a Indian wedding like to wear red as it stands for prosperity and fertility for the wedding couple.
