The English Countryside… Romance, Roman Ruins & Raas Garba?!? Part 1

Imagine a narrow cobblestone tree canopied roadway lined with shoulder height brick walls.  Green moss clinging to the faded white stucco walls and up to the overgrown eaves. A herd of cows in pasture, a church steeple jutting through the horizon and a pub named after an animal combined with an descriptive adjective, awaits your arrival. You have travel back in time to a place where life was simpler… the English countryside.

A landscape so lush, which on a clear summer day betrays it’s typically overcast and rainy standard. When the weather does play nice, it is nothing short of inspiring. This land gave birth to some of the greatest English romantic literary works. Many of these epic stories woven around the lords and castles which have long ago governed this landscape and perhaps some were influenced by the historic Haldswell House. This house (manor) which payed host to over 100 of Menka & Ajay’s closest friends and family for several eventful days.

When my dear friend Menka asked if I would be up for shooting her wedding, I was flattered and graciously accepted. The four days in the UK countryside were a cavalcade of dances, music and tea parties. It started with some fun in the sun, a formal engagement and a night of dancing under the stars and in the shadow of a castle. Sounds like a romance novel. More tk…
