Bride and Tonic feature Kavya and RIkesh’s wedding

Bride and Tonic is a wedding blog that knows good wedding photography when it sees it. Inspirational images and tips for the creative couples, so its no surprise that when they saw the wedding of Kavya and Rikesh they were keen to feature.

The wedding of Kavya and Rikesh is so colourful, so vibrant, and so creative its no surprise that wedding blogs are loving the stunning photography by Alexa Penberthy who captured their day so perfectly. Alexa is a destination wedding photographer, and Kavya and Rikesh are both creatives, so the wedding photography was a big part of their planning process.

Here it is in their words from Bride and Tonic

‘Such a beautiful wedding we have in store for you today. Kavya and Rikesh wanted open grounds for their venue and their photographs and sunset couple shots really do justice to the beautiful Poundon House! With stunning photography from Alexa Penberthy and the most beautiful wedding wear we have seen in a long time, this elegant Indian wedding is one not to miss!

Kavya + Rikesh’s Story

We properly started speaking to each other on Twitter, as we both worked in the music industry at the time. After talking a lot, we met a few times, and never stopped. I proposed to her a few years later at her flat. I had surprised her before she left for work, and told her the day was booked off. “We’re going out for breakfast, and then I’m taking you to get your nails done because if you’re going to show off an engagement ring, you should have pretty nails..” and whilst she registered what I said, I got down on one knee and proposed.

The Venue

Poundon House, Oxfordshire. We wanted a venue that was equal distance from our family homes, which had open grounds and personality. As we generally pay attention to detail, we needed a venue that accommodated our requirements, but also worked well in photographs.
