Choosing Your Wedding Caterer – Asian Wedding Photography

This is a big element of the wedding budget and for asian wedding the catering and the venue costs run into their thousands of pounds, catering costs of around and above £20,000 are not untypical. Hence it is important that you get this element right and also need to make sure that you have the caterer that meets with your needs. Remember if they do not get the food right, the last thing you will get from your guests is probably be a quick exit and a trip to the local Kentucky.

We have emphasised the above point since majority of asian wedding service providers take full payment of all the costs before the event. Therefore to claim back any costs for a botched service is very unlikely to the reimbursed. It is here that I would also suggest that you look to taking out an event insurance to cover you against unexpected situations.

The following is a set of questions you need to ask your wedding caterer prior to booking them and also what you need to be aware off is that the tasting should be done at one of their actual weddings where they are catering. It is here that you will get a true taste of their food where they are preparing and cooking for four hundred guests which is not uncommon for an asian wedding.

These questions have been obtained from “The Wedding Knot” website.

Does the caterer specialise in certain types of food or service? (They should provide you with sample menus to review.) Find a wedding caterer who can make a memorable meal.

Can the caterer arrange for a tasting of the specific foods you’re interested in prior to hiring? (They should.) Schedule a tasting if you get a good vibe.

What is the caterer’s average price range? Are costs itemized depending on the foods you choose, or is there an all-inclusive flat rate? What would that include (linens, tax, and gratuity)? Does the caterer have printed price sheets for food selections? Make sure there’s room in your wedding budget.

How involved is the caterer in a typical reception — does she work like a wedding coordinator or banquet manager, cueing the band, telling the couple when to cut the cake, adjusting the schedule if guests don’t seem ready to sit down to dinner? (You will need to find someone to fill this role — if your site manager or caterer isn’t going to do this, think about hiring a wedding coordinator.)

Will the caterer provide tables, chairs, plates, table linens, silverware, salt-and-pepper shakers, and more? Ask to see these items to make sure they’re acceptable. Do you have to rent tables, place settings, or other equipment? Or will they arrange for the rentals? If not, find wedding rentals in your area.

Who is the main contact? Will the same person you work with when planning also oversee meal service on the day of the wedding? (You want this to be the case.)

Will the caterer work any other weddings on the same weekend, the same day, or at the same time as yours? (You want to be sure they will devote sufficient attention to you.) You may want to pass on a smaller outfit who indicates they have another job or two scheduled for that day.

Does the caterer handle all table settings? Will they put out place cards and favors?

Will the caterer provide wait staff? How many would they recommend for the size of your wedding? What will the waitstaff wear? (Top caterers say they always use their own serving personnel, even if the site’s staff is available, because they understand the caterer’s way of doing business.)

Will the caterer be willing to include a recipe you provide, like a special family dish, or an appetizer with some sort of sentimental significance? Can they prepare vegetarian, kosher, kids, or halal meals for just a few of your guests?

Where will the food be prepared? Are there on-site facilities, or do you, the caterer, and the site manager need to make additional arrangements? If the caterer must bring in his own equipment, is there an additional fee?

Does the caterer work with fresh (not frozen) food?

Does the caterer have a license? (This means her business has met health department standards and has liability insurance — make sure this includes a liquor license if you’re having a bar.)

Can the caterer provide alcohol? Or can you handle the bar separately? If you can provide it, is there a corkage fee? How and when will you get the alcohol to the caterer? If the caterer will provide it, do they have an flexible wine list, and can you make special requests? How is this list priced?

How will the caterer arrange the food on the buffet table or on plates? Can you see photos of previous work displays?

Can you speak to previous clients? (Get at least two references that had a similar number of guests and a similar menu style.)

Does the caterer also do wedding cakes? Can you use an outside baker if you desire? Is there a cake-cutting fee?

Bridal Makeup and Beautician Hair, Henna and Asian Wedding Photography

Over the last twenty years or some of our asian wedding photography work we have come across number of brides and have to say the biggest let down we see is their make up. Some brides are naturally pretty and they know it, yet on the day of their wedding they forget that they are putting make up on and that’s where they completely mess things are up. They don’t seem to realise that asian wedding days are a long event and demanding, you are wearing heavy outfits with head coverings and so on. Your make up should be put on that takes the punishment and ensures that you look good for the whole day. Remember Brides, you don’t want your makeup to start running in middle of your hot religious ceremony or for it to fall apart when you start grooving on the dance floor after the first dance.

I always tell all my clients that they need to tell their make up artists that the make up should be put on for photography and filming purposes. Despite this I get some brides putting make up on that is shiny to highlight the cheek bones. This may look fine but the photographs would show them having golf balls growing out of their faces. You have to remember we as photographers are working with additional lighting and that means flashguns, photography is all about reflected light, what is reflected of the person is captured by the camera. Therefore all those features highlighted by makeup in a photograph will look very unglamorous.

The following are some tips which I have picked up from the Cosmopolitan Magazine which I think you will find to be useful. Please note the person in this article is European and is written more for the non asian brides. But the tips are just as relevant. Plus she did this make by herself. However majority of my clients will use a professional asian bridal beautician.


Traditionally makeup for Asian weddings is always heavy; however the key is to have a flawless, natural looking glowing complexion, build your make up in very thin layers, blotting lightly with a tissue to remove moisture.

It’s tempting to try and get the coverage in one go, however it always looks more natural and lasts longer when you work with smaller amounts of product and blend really well. This tip has changed my approach to application. Try it and see the difference it makes.

For a photogenic finish, apply an illuminator “across the cheekbones and temples, and use a light reflecting concealer under the eyes for a lift.

Use a translucent powder to lightly (and sparingly) mattify the t-zone – flash photography will make the centre part look shiny.


For me this day had to be about a strong cat-eye. Shape your eyeliner into a beautiful Audrey Hepburn flick which you feel comfortable with, to enhance the shape of your eyes.” Sarah perfectly painted on the Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner in Black Ink using the Real Techniques Fine Liner Brush. False lashes and I had my Eylures at the ready but my Smashbox Photo Op Eye Brightening Mascara did such a good job I left it at that.

Of course I didn’t forget to define my brows, “without doing so the features start to get lost I had mine threaded (an ancient Indian art of course!) a few days before and enhanced them.


I was worried about looking washed-out in my bright sari – the secret is to make sure you wear colour on the lips. A glossy finish will complement the radiant complexion and make you look fresh rather than over-done!

To get longevity I finished with a tiny bit of Chanel Glossimer lip gloss in Sonate. Layering and compressing the colour will keep it in place. I also like to dust translucent powder around the lips to prevent feathering.

For me most valuable tip of all was “if you’re unsure wait until you have put your jewellery on before adding final touches of lips and cheeks. I think with this in mind I struck the balance of competing with my elaborate clothing and jewellery without looking like I tried too hard (my biggest fear at any occasion).


I wanted an up-do to show off my accessories and opted for a soft side bun. A hairdresser local to Leicester where the ceremony was held, created the style first setting it in rollers at the top for body and tonging the back section for texture. She pinned it into a bun and backcombed the crown to conceal where my head jewellery (a.k.a. a tikka) was attached. This worked best positioned along a centre-parting so for the week before the wedding I trained my hair to sit in the middle, which after years of wearing it on the side felt really weird. I loved the finished look though.


I’ve never had henna before, let alone bridal henna, but I loved it experiencing the tradition. The night before the wedding my hands were painted for over an hour and a half and I woke up to crumbles of the dye in bed with me! My mother-in-law’s top tip to remove it in the morning is to wash your hands with olive oil which worked a treat. My advice for first timers is to keep a pair of latex gloves handy for bathroom visits before you’re able to wash it off!

Dress and Body Types

The following information has been take from who specialise in providing range of wedding services.

Lot of the information here also applies to asian wedding brides and have referenced in my training sessions with brides in respect of their wedding photography.

Q. With huge boobs and slim hips I’m always in danger of looking cartoonish. How can I look chic when I walk down the aisle?

A. Firstly, lucky you! But if you feel self conscious, you can easily restore the balance by adding volume to your lower body to create the perfect hourglass silhouette. You can really live every little girl’s dream and look fantastic in a fairytale or ball-gown style wedding dress.

Q. I’m really self-conscious about my batwings. How can I keep my flabby arms concealed without looking too trussed up?

A. Don’t be afraid to wear sleeves on your wedding day. A clever cut will look beautiful – not ‘trussed up’ at all – and will definitely give you confidence if you’re worried about your upper arms. Choose a loose sleeve rather than close fitting as this will also work hard to cover broad, square shoulders.

Q. I’m often complimented on my figure as I’m tall and slender, but actually I’ve never got over that teenage gawky feeling. How do I look elegant on my wedding day?

A. Tall, slender frames look fantastic in a column dress which skims the figure and has a real catwalk feel. A fitted style with a straight skirt will give you a statuesque figure, ensuring you look sleek and anything but gawky. For a really feminine look, you could opt for a lace overlay, or a beautiful row of buttons down the back of your dress.

Q. My body is really out of proportion – I’m about 5ft 5in and have a really short torso but long legs! What styles would you suggest for my wedding dress?

A. You should try a couple of styles with a fitted, drop waist and a shorter skirt. The drop waist will lengthen your mid section, whilst adding definition and giving you feminine curves. Don’t feel like you need to cover up your killer pins, in fact you really should show them off – even on your wedding day! Plenty of brides are opting for shorter styles, which can still look really bridal, especially if they’re lovely and full, in soft, feminine fabrics like layered tulle.

Q. I’ve got a really boyish, straight up and down figure. How can I soften my look for my wedding day?

A. Empire line gowns are soft, feminine and otherworldly. Gathering and detailing below the bust – with a little help from some gentle padding – will create shape, whilst delicate fabric and an unstructured waist will flow over your frame, hinting at curves. With your type of figure the likelihood is that you have lovely arms and shoulders, so show off your toned limbs with a strapless dress. Alternatively, opt for a slightly scooped boat neckline and delicate lacy, elbow length sleeves, for an oh-so-pretty look.

Q. I’m really curvy with boobs, a tum and hips. I’m planning on losing a few pounds before my big day, but I’m never going to be a Skinny Minnie. I’m at a loss as to what type of wedding dress to go for, what do you think?

A. Structure is the order of the day for you! A-line or princess-line dresses are very popular, as they suit everyone, and are fantastic figure fixers. In your case, with its fitted bodice and softly flaring A-line skirt, the princess dress will ‘create’ a waistline nipping you in where you need it, whilst skimming flatteringly over your hips. Add interest around the bust with a sweetheart neckline, which will enhance your best assets.

How Many Megapixels Does Your Camera Need

The following article answers the question that I most often ask me how many pixels would make a good camera and do high pixels make better photography.


Posted in asian wedding photography, cameras, photography, weddings | Tagged , , , , , , ,

Pre Wedding Photography

As apart of our wedding package and as a standard we provide pre wedding photo shoots. These are done in public places and early in the morning.

The shoots form part of the wedding package and the style I adopt is one which shows the relationship of the couple. The pre wedding gallery further illustrates this and as you can see there is lots of energy in these photographs.

In terms of what you wear on your wedding day – that is simple – a wedding dress. However for the pre wedding photo shoots we always suggest some bright contrasting colours that you are comfortable wearing. The reason why, this helps to bring you out from dreary backgrounds, for example wearing black and standing next to ornamental gates which are painted black and gold – will not do you any justice, you will just blend into the gates. It is surprising how many people turn up to the shoot wearing dark clothing on a dark cloudy day.

We are also asked how one should pose for the photographs. This is a good question and one which is the hardest to answer. The simple answer is that we cannot teach how to pose, all we can do is direct you in terms of how you could improve your stance or position. What we advise people is that they should practice at home in front of a mirror and also try to reflect on what type of character they want to be, which could be someone from a novel they have read or a film they have watched. This would be the basis of you getting your mind to look at you in a way that you want to be seen and this will naturally manifest itself out on the day of the shoot in front of the camera.
The other point that I always emphasise to couples is that they should try to look at many magazines and books – noting any particular poses they like and practising them at home together in front of a mirror.

We are quite experienced in this field and all our wedding packages include a pre wedding shoot and thoroughly discuss these with you at the initial stages. We have found that this helps tremendously on the wedding day, where they couple are comfortable in front of the camera and are keen to have their photographs taken.

Getting Ready for Photography

We are often asked by couples how they would like them to pose for the photographs and what they should be wearing. This is difficult question to answer since not everyone is the same.
People come in all shapes and sizes with different skin tones, colours and complexions. If you look at our galleries you will see what we mean and this presents us with a challenge. For us, our task is to present you in your best bringing out all your natural qualities. This means controlling the level of light reaching your face, for example from our flash units – too much direct light will just burn the make up off, which we have seen all too often and therefore not having an image set which could be talked about in future years.

The key advice is to prepare and look around much as possible as to how people carry and present themselves. This means looking at magazines, television programs and films plus visualising a character from a book which you like. All these things will help to latently shape your body and mind into a wonderful photographic pose. As they say the light is within and it will shine – its all about discovering it.

The main key things we emphasise is – getting to know your body and what it looks good in and making the right expresions. We have few links below that will help you come to understand this even more. This is coupled with making sure that you have the right person for the make up and the making sure that the dress or suit you have bought for the wedding day does reflect your personality and attributes.

Photo Tagging – Your Life Will Never Be Private – Privacy or Damnation – A Threat to Us All!

Asian Wedding Photography

Over the last few months I have noticed a plethora of activity in respect of people uploading and sharing photos on social networking websites. On Facebook when I login, straight away I see, “so and so” was tagged in “so and so” photo in “so and so” place.

This is good for individuals who are seeking publicity and self-gratification that they are popular. Pop Stars are good examples of this, who want their fans to see where they are all the time and if a fan can capture their picture or see a picture of themselves in their Icons’ (Pop Star’s) site and the site tells them that they were “tagged” in their favorite Pop Star’s web page or social networking site – it has made their day, in a manner of this illustration.

This is where the whole matter becomes quite complex. Facial recognition technology is expanding and getting better by the day. It is the result of this that many photos are being accurately tagged. In some areas there are road based cameras that use facial recognition software to identify the driver. They are only able to at this stage pick up the driver’s identity, provided a database holds information about them, this would normally be the police/security criminal databases of convicted felons or from their intelligence databases.

Lately, I have noticed how police have started to capture quite quickly people who were involved in public disorder. The recent riots in the United Kingdom on the government’s cuts by students and other protesters, it made me wonder how do they manage to capture these people so quickly. Well, the answer is social networking sites. It is quite simple – they have in all probability got a number of Facebook and equivalent accounts such as Google Picasa, Flickr, all they have to do on the day is to take the images they have recorded and upload them to these sites and VOILA all the suspects have been identified. The police in this respect only had to leave the station to apprehend the perpetrators, sounds easy.

It has become easy because we have made it easy for them, we gave them the information in the first place and in most probability this was done unknowingly and was done just to share information with friends and family.

What is most disturbing, revealing the identities of friends and individuals through tagging is being done without their consent. This is evident, when for example I was uploading images of my model to Flickr and then was offered to name my model (tagging), I just had to centre the box on to her face and then enter her name – thereafter that face would have a name and it would become globally identified. Fair enough I own the copyright of the photograph and I can choose to publish it wherever I want, this is by agreement with my model. If this was not the relationship and agreement with my model, then who gives me the right to provide someone’s name to a photograph without their consent?

Taking of Information – Hacking Data – Governments – Cyber War

This is all so worrying where corporations are gaining so much power over our lives as a result of us giving them information. How do we know if they are not selling our information or providing a back door access to security agencies etc. Sony Playstation fiasco is a very good examples of this. Data was hacked into and records stolen, they are saying that the data included credit card and login details of their customers. Now what if the databases of Google Picasa, Flickr and other social networking websites were broken into and the facial recognition tags were taken. Then it would be DOOOOOOOM if it is not already happening.

Call me a cynic but my firm belief and originally, I believed it was a Royal Family scam, ensuring that everyone watched the Royal Wedding – thus the Sony’s Playstation collapse. However as the saga continues, I believe that Sony’s hacking problems were not started by few people who are probably disgruntled with Sony for one reason or the other. They tried to blame Anonymous, that is a red herring. The fact of the matter is that this attack was well planned, structured and coordinated that it could only have been done by someone who had the resources to do so. This someone could only be another government.

Keeping records about their Citizens by governments is not a new thing. The Eastern European country before its fall, East Germany had a special spying unit which kept detailed records of all its citizens, now imagine that at a global scale, where a government is able to access the tagged records (photographs) which we have willing uploaded and supplied to social networking providers, a government would have detailed information about what we look like and our movements through location software installed on our phones and it gets worse when you bring Oyster (UK rail transport prepayment card) into it. Well, lets not bring Oyster into the equation.

The attack on Sony and at the time of writing this blog was still ongoing, as I said earlier, this attack has been well resourced and coordinated and I think this is going to be the start of things to come for the future. Here in the UK, the government carried out an assessment on the likelihood of where future wars could take place and the type of armed services and defence it needs to develop to combat future threats. Cyber War was well within the top ten of this assessment list. A good example of this is the attack the Russians launched on Lithuania about four years ago – they collapsed Lithuania’s ability to function by jamming the internet to the country, also it is rumored that they interfered with quite a few of their systems.

I believe something similar has happened with Sony and it wouldn’t surprise me if it is later found that the attacks on Sony ceased as a result of the Japanese government coming to some arrangement with the attacker, another government. This is how the Russian Lithuanian attack was ceased.

The point that I am making here is that no matter how well we are protected by our own laws and the integrity of our governments – there is no guarantee that the information which we have provided is safe from “Others”.

Be Safe and Play Safe on the Net – Preserve Your Privacy

Tagging is going to affect many people over the next few years and as time progresses it will affect our children and our children’s children. I personally wouldn’t like to see a photo of me and being informed that I was spotted at “so and so” place. It is no one else’s business as to where I go and what I do. My life is mine alone and would ask you all to consider the repercussions in store for us as we, without thinking provide information about our lives to complete strangers and eventually to the state – Big Brother 1984 – In the end it will be our fault since we have supplied the information willingly and without coercion.

Can Indian Films Can Ever Go Global

The following is a comment as a result an article I read in the Guardian –

Soon there will be lots of unemployed Indian actors – this is a back door exercise for Hollywood to get their stars into India. It is a circumlocutory way for the Americans to dominate a country that they cannot invade or take over. It is this, through the opening of satellite channels in the Middle East and the introduction of tacky American soap dramas and so on, in part which led people to rise up and ask for a better way of life in the Arab world.

Once this happens, it would be too late, Indian Actors who are revered like Gods will be shouting and will try to rally the masses to rebel against Hollywood. But it would be too late the Indian audiences will be duped into worshiping semi tanned “white” gods, as you know Bollywood is sustained by the masses in India, most of whom are poor and illiterate – a fictional film with lots of glitz and glamour is what they want to escape from their everyday reality.

So if Bollywood and its side kicks forget their root and the source of their wealth – then they are sowing the seeds poverty for their present billionaires. As it is said “bigger they are harder they fall”.

It is also well-known that Hollywood films do not make the mark all the time in the Indian subcontinent – the reason is that they do not appeal to the masses for the reasons mentioned above and only satisfy the appetite of the elite few in India.

So watch out Reliance and you rich boys – you are going to be used – your money is going to be taken first, then your clothes, home, wife, girlfriend, mistress, kids and then finally, The Country. So far you have not made any money as it is suggested in this article. I hope you understand where I am going with this – you are being duped.

Indian culture is one of the most vibrant and the richest one in the world – so lets not lose it.

Choosing Your Wedding Photographer

For a professional photographer to cover your wedding – please visit asian wedding photography

Photography is the most important aspect of your event. If you select the wrong photographer you will live to regret it for the rest of your life. Even if you have insurance to cover the eventuality of lost or damaged photographs – a re-shoot of the day in a simulated environment is no substitute for the actual event.

Therefore consider carefully the person you choose to photograph and video your wedding.

Nowadays digital cameras have become so popular that almost everyone feels that they can take brilliant pictures. This is where things go wrong, when the uncle or nephew who puts themselves forward to photograph the wedding, beware their work is no substitute compared to a professional.

The main problem is that most digital cameras which people own are fine and suitable for those personal moments for the individual. However the when it comes to printing and recording images for future posterity the professional behind the camera would know how to do this exactly. Sadly, the uncle or the nephew would not, they need to understand how light works and despite the automation within present digital cameras, a professional still has to make corrections manually on the day of the shoot to compensate and also prepare the image for further manipulation when preparing the wedding album.

It is quite frustrating to see how weddings have been ruined as a result of the work of the uncle or the nephew and therefore the family feud sets and each wishes the other some ill or a witch’s curse.

The following information located at is a very good guide in helping you decide how to choose your photographer.

For more on this please visit choosing an asian wedding photographer

How Much Should We Pay?
Photographers’ fees vary according to their experience. A better-established wedding photographer is going to charge more.

If you want photographs to include the bride getting ready as well as the first dance and the farewell fireworks, your photographer will need to be booked for the entire day. If you want to save on the photography budget, you should cut back on the amount of hours the photographer needs to be in attendance on the day. Your photographer will probably charge for travel, so you might want to book someone local to the venue. Most photographers offer a package. Get a complete breakdown and find out details such as the number of photos provided and the options on a printed or digital album.

What is copyright?
Legally, photographers automatically own your photos unless you buy the copyright. Some photographers make a copyright agreement, giving you high resolution images to use and print as you want. Make sure you have the agreement in writing somewhere. If you want to use your photos for a newspaper or publication, you’ll need to get your photographer’s copyright permission.

A Great Shoot….

I did a fantastic pre wedding shoot the other day, it is sad that I cannot share those pictures with you due to client wishes. However as part of the pre wedding shoot I normally find couples for the first time struggling to get into posing and giving the look they really want.

I always provide the following advice to all my clients –

1) Learn to pose look at fashion magazines and bridal magazines see how the professional models pose.
2) Practice with your partner the type of poses you want to do. This makes it easier for the photographer and you to work together to get the perfect picture. Plus it saves a lot of time in the respect the photographer is not teaching you how to pose.
3) Practice in front of a full length mirror how to bend and shape your body as well as smiling. There are quite a few resources on the web on how to do that.
4) Make sure you get the make up right. In my case I tent to do two or three pre wedding shoots. This helps the couple to build confidence and get into a clear routine how they want to stand in front of the camera and the types of pictures they want to see.
5) I came across this website as a great resource, which I think lots of couples would find as an invaluable guide on how to pose –
