What has East West Photography been up to Recently?
East meets West again in Nairobi, Kenya, where we captured some beautiful memories for a lovely bride and groom, Jasraj and Kavan. From the mendhi nights, sangeet nights, pre-wedding parties and of course the special day.
This was definitely the big fat Sikh wedding, full of vibrant colours, traditions, music and happy chaos.
The celebrations kicked off with the religious satsangs followed by karais, a celebration that kick-starts the wedding, in real Kenyan style. Ever heard the Swahili phrase polepole (slowly)? If it didn’t happen this way, it wouldn’t be the Kenya we know and love.
This was followed by two nights of pre-wedding parties full of Bollywood and Hollywood tunes. The amazing line up included DJ Rishi and Sodhi from Nairobi, Juggy D, Jassi Sidhu, DJ RajeevB and Ministry of Dhol from London. This gave both families a great opportunity to mingle with each other and let their hair down. Let’s not forget the copious amounts of food on offer, as is the way with Kenyan weddings.
Then of course the most special day for the couple, their wedding day. The marriage ceremony took place at the local Ramgharia Sikh Temple Pangani. The bride looked absolutely stunning in her beautiful red outfit and the groom scrubbed up pretty well too!
The celebrations were full of excitement and happy vibes. All these special moments were captured on camera for the lovely couple and their families to cherish for years to come.
We at East West Photography love to take natural shots of the couple and their guests. These are some of the best images to look back on.
The team here wishes the lovely couple all the best on their journey together in life.
