Devonshire Dome Wedding Photography Buxton
Sarita and Jeetesh’s Indian wedding at Devonshire Dome, Buxton
I had so much fun capturing all Sarita and Jeetesh’s wedding celebrations! I was with Sarita and her family for the two days leading up to the main wedding at Devonshire dome as they had some pre-wedding ceremonies at Sarita’s family home in Manchester. It was really great to be part of these intimate ceremonies and to get to know Sarita and her family before the main event. I had also done a pre-wedding shoot with Sarita and Jeetesh in the beautiful village of Bakewell in the Peak District a few weeks earlier as we explored and had some fun making photos.
Sarita and Jeetesh got married at the frankly jaw-dropping Devonshire Dome in Buxton. This crazy venue looks fairly inconspicuous from the outside but once you step inside you can’t help but gasp at the sheer scale of the dome and design of the building. I’ve never seen anywhere like it and it should be on any list of the coolest places to get married in the UK. Crazy cool.
After taking some photos of Sarita getting ready at a nearby hotel I made sure I was at Devonshire Dome for Jeetesh’s arrival. It was a classic British “fine rain that soaks you through” day as Jeetesh arrived to be greeted first by his own family and friends and then once inside by Sarita’s family and friends where he had his nose well and truly grabbed! Once he arrived to the mandap the ceremonies began and the priest conducted a really upbeat, positive ceremony that had Sarita and Jeet smiling throughout. Then the rain stopped and we were able to make some photos outside while everybody had lunch, before the post-ceremony “koda kodi” games and Sarita and Jeetesh made their exit.
A few hours later everyone was back inside the Devonshire Dome for the reception, as the dome was transformed after-dark into a multi-coloured party venue!
Massive congratulations to Sarita and Jeet, thanks so much for having me as your wedding photographer at Devonshire Dome! Here are some of my favourites from their Buxton wedding, with a few extra images from the build-up events…
