For me, Thomas & Usha’s wedding was almost 3 years in the making. I met Usha for the first time on the 9th of March 2013. She was one of the bridesmaids at Sam & Sue-anne’s wedding and since that wedding, I’ve shot many weddings where Usha was involved in some way or another. Usha is a member of Zion Praise Harvest Church and as most people know, that church is dear to me as I’ve been privileged to shoot weddings for lots of members (hence Usha always being a feature!).
Last August Usha came to my stall at the Perth Wedding Upmarket expo and introduced me to her fiance Thomas. After finding out they were engaged I think the first thing I said was “Usha… I would so LOVE to shoot your wedding!”
I don’t think there’s another person I’ve shot at more events than Usha! (except for maybe Mr Jerry Tan and pastors Patrick & Joyce). Normally I’m quite neutral when I get enquiries from couples because every wedding is unique and beautiful in it’s own way so I’m always pleased when I get a booking but this was definitely one client whose wedding I REALLY wanted to shoot and thankfully the feeling was mutual!
Thomas and Usha were married at Wesley Church in Perth city and their reception was held in the Astral Ballroom at Crown Perth. This is not the whole story of their wedding day, just some of my favourite snippets from an emotional day filled with toasts, selfies and a bit of bollywood action. Congratulations guys, it was a real blessing to be able to share the day with you!
