At most weddings that I have documented the ring bearer is a beloved family member but at Dhruti and Jitesh’s civil ceremony it was Jitesh’s pet turtles that made the guest appearance.

I knew Jitesh during my college years, a long time before I even started photography but Jitesh got back in contact kindly asking me to document his special day. It really means a lot when a rapport built many years ago still holds its value to the present day.

Dhruti loved to show her true emotions, she didn’t hold back any tears and smiles and it really shows within the photos.

Their special day was held at Ealing Town Hall which is a distinctive late Victorian gothic building which is situated on one of West London’s busiest broadway.

Keep an eye out for the next part of Jitesh and Dhruti’s wedding story.
