Aashni + Co Wedding Show 2018

Seems 2018 has got off to a rather frantic but amazing start. Was approached by Aashni + Co to officially photograph their wedding show in the beautiful Somerset House in London last weekend. Now I'm no stranger to wedding shows, I used to exhibit at them every year, so I thought I knew what to expect, but I was so wrong.

The Aashni + Co wedding show is like no other wedding show I have witnessed, it's more like an exhibition of clothing designers, jewellers & make up artists who just happen to do weddings as well as work in the Asian music, movie & fashion industries.  The place is just oozing professionalism & every exhibitor there is at the top of their game (I felt at home haha!).

I approached the show not wanting to make it look like an exhibition, but more like a boutique which is very very busy.  This was relatively simple with the beautiful floral arrangements by 'Zita Elze' all over the place.

A big thank you to all the exhibitors for tolerating my madness throughout the weekend, especially my good friend Ambreen Make Up, who's exhibiting room was half filled with my photographic gear most of the weekend.

That's enough ranting, enjoy the images!


 

 

2017

2017!  59 events, 20 wedding couples, 5 tons of wedding food later & it's all over.  Its been a year of avoiding selfie sticks, early mornings & long days of editing...if you stand still in this industry, you're moving backwards!

Highlight of the year? Surely it's shooting a pre-wed in New York, a beautiful Catholic wedding in Saint Tropez & one of my best friends weddings, the latter being featured in Khush Magazine.

The Dash Photography Instagram account has gone into overdrive, almost 3000 followers in 1 year from 100 posts...amazing!  Facebook has gone a bit nuts to, 50 reviews so far, every single one is 5/5 - I must be doing something right, must be my amazing jokes (sarcasm alert).

A massive THANK YOU to all the couples who entrusted me in capturing one of the most important days of their lives in 2017, without you guys I wouldn't be able to do what I love & I wish you much happiness in your new journeys.

As for 2018, it's already starting to shape up nicely & I cannot wait to get going again, not that it's a long wait, 1st event is in 2 weeks!

Without further ado, here are my favourite 100 images from 2017.
