Sarika & Dipesh by Sheetal Varsarni

I photographed Sarika & Dipesh’s Civil Ceremony last July and their pre-wedding shoot just a couple of weeks before their big day. Sarika & Dipesh’s relationship began in High School and after 10 years together, these childhood sweethearts got married with a ceremony at Cardiff City Hall.

For their pre-wedding shoot, we drove down to Ogmore-by-Sea to catch some of the beach’s gorgeous golden hour light. It’s one of my favourite spots along the Welsh Coast for the sunset and not a long drive from Cardiff. When the tide is in, Ogmore-by-Sea is mostly cliffs and pebbles, but the tide was out so we got to frolic around on the sand as well, giving us more of a variety of backdrops.

Despite it being the middle of July, the weather was a bit dreary, but this made for some dramatic light and backdrop. Sarika & Dipesh embraced the cold wind and drizzle – they were even brave enough to get into the sea for some of the shots!

Sarika & Dipesh were both complete naturals in front of the camera. They got lost in each other and completely forgot I was even there most of the time!

Cwtch of the Week: A Golden Hour Cwtch

Hello Cwtchers!

To get over all that chocolate we have managed to consume over the Easter holidays,  we have an absolutely stunning Cwtch of the Week to share with you all.  Shot by the very talented and lovely Sheetal Varsani, the shot is of Sarika and Dipesh, enjoying a lovely moment on the beach, as the sun goes down, during their engagement shoot. I will hand over to Sheetal to tell you more about the shoot. Enjoy!

A week before their Civil Ceremony, I travelled down to Ogmore-By-Sea with Sarika & Dipesh to catch the sunset for their pre-wedding shoot. Despite the weather forecast being a bit iffy, these two were happy to embrace the cold wind and drizzle.

They were even brave enough to get into the ocean!

Having documented their Chandlo Engagement last year, it’s always a joy to have these two in front of my camera.

I’m really looking forward to capturing their official marriage at Cardiff City Hall and can’t wait to share more photos!

And as for us, we have the whole engagement shoot that we cannot wait to show off to you! I will be chasing Sheetal for those wedding images too! x
