You may recognise some of the next images as within days of my having finished the post-production on these I launched my new look website late last year, and of course I had to make sure these were on there!
The gorgeous Shaminder and Darren were married at the Gurdwara in Ealing in a Sikh wedding ceremony (also called the “Anand Karaj“) in late October. It was another gorgeous autumn day, but of course this was an Asian wedding so colour abounded! We had such an amazing day photographing these two and their friends and family..
The reception was held at Savill Court, Windsor (more about that to follow in the next post).
Below are some of my favourite images from their day. Please feel free to leave comments 🙂
After the ceremony, we went back to Shaminder’s parents home which was the perfect opportunity for us to get a few portraits of her.
The post-wedding rituals of a traditional Sikh wedding consist of vidaai or doli ceremony. It is a very emotional affair for the bride’s family. As the bride departs from her parent’s house, she throws back handful of rice over her shoulder, thereby wishing prosperity for her parents and family, which she leaves behind to start a new life with new dreams and aspirations.
Many congratulations to you both. What an amazingly colourful and emotional wedding ceremony!
