Event summary:

Luxury Wedding Photographers East West Photography were honoured to photography the Indian wedding Photography of our stunning couple. The wedding took place at the boutique Oakley Court Hotel in Windsor, Berkshire.

We have known Surika’s family for a while having previously photographed her Sister’s and brother’s weddings. We were really excited as Hotel lies on the beds of River thames and the groom would make his entrance on a boat with his friends. The only damper on the day was that the rain decided to come down heavy and all the planning of having the Hindu Punjabi Ceremony outside had to be changed at the last minute.

Surika got dressed in traditional Red wedding lengha dress and she look absolutely stunning. Asian Wedding specialists East West Photography started by capturing here look. We love to use different lighting setups during the morning bridal preps, but Surika’s room had beautiful light coming from a window so all her shots were done just by using window light.

Once the wedding ceremony started we just capture the event in a reportage way, trying not to get in the way of the priest conducting the ceremony. Usually when the father gives the bride away at the Hindu Ceremony, a ceremony called “Kanadhan”, its a good time to capture emotion as you will find that the parents are a bit tearful. As Surika was the youngest of the siblings this is how it turned out, so moments with the father, mother and her brother gave us some good photo opportunities.

The Hindu ceremony normally lasts about 1-2hrs depending the priest conducting the ceremony. Once the fire is lit the couple walk around 4 times with prayers being chanted. The Doli cerecomy took place at Surika’s home and we were then back to capture the fun at the reception.

Lastly we would like to thank  Surika’s family for hiring our services and let us photograph the Indian Wedding Ceremony, we wish you all the beautiful couple all the best for the future.
