The photographers had a chance again this season of visiting a Gurudwara and shooting a wedding for this lovely Punjabi couple Karan and Harpreet. It was a three day event covering the Engagement , wedding and then a Grand reception.
This lovely couple got married on 20th February 2019.
The groom waiting for the time when he would wed his beautiful bride-to-be. The handsome groom all dressed up in the Indian traditional outfit also known as the “Sherwani”. The ornaments or other additions that add texture, colour and meaning to his attire is the kilangi, turban, Groom neck-piece is made of woven pearls, sword, Indian wedding shoes also called the “Mojaris or jutis”. I’m sure your curious to know what’s a “Kilangi”. Its an ornament worn on the turban of the groom. The Sword, Kilangi and the groom’s pearl necklace is a sign of Royalty. A bridegroom is treated as a king or prince on the occasion of his wedding
The bride beautifully dressed in the traditional dress also called the “Lehenga”. The embroidery work on the Lehenga and the ornaments give a feeling of confidence to the bride as she looks her very best. Some religious jewelries are placed between the eyebrows as you see in this bride. They call this the ‘Tilak’. Did you know this religious ornament stands as the door of one’s soul? It gives the a feeling of belongingness to the person wearing this ornament.
Finally when the hour of marrying his bride, both of them hand in hand takes their wedding Pheras or walk round the holy “Fire” and say their wedding vows promising to be together for a lifetime.
The Groom all happy and jumping with joy that he finally conquered and accomplished his dream of wedding his beautiful bride.
The photographers and videographers enjoyed capturing all this to give the couple a memory of a lifetime.
Photographed this lovely couple on their pre-wedding and then on their wedding day. The photo shoot was held on 2nd of December 2019. It was a pleasure capturing stills for the most important day of their lives. The to-be- bride and groom all dress in their best outfits.
The groom was carried by the relatives of the bride to the entrance of the venue.
The relatives wore pink turban which is part of the Maharashtrian tradition. The Maharashtrian tradition is mainly followed by the people of Maharashtra. Maharashtra is one of the busiest states of India. The main Metropolitan city and economical hub of India.
Yet today people in cities love to follow their respective traditions that make a special occasion like a wedding to feel grand and you see a lot of togetherness in the families.
The bride in blue and the groom besides her have worn the traditional ‘Sehra’ or ‘Pheta’. They are all smiles and happy as they conduct the rituals that are predetermined by the Marathi culture.
Once the rituals are over the bride is all set to leave her parents and folk to enter a new life into a new family.
India is so rich with different cultures and every ceremony held would have a different meaning and resemblance making it worthwhile for the photographer to capture it in a photograph so that not only the families but also people around could learn from it.
Among st all of these cultures you find the true and only essence “LOVE“
After recently completing their pre wedding we had the opportunity to Photograph their wedding on 20th November 2019. It was exciting and fun to see two different people come together for Love.

Every couple aims to enjoy a happily married life with blessings from family and friends. According to many cultures, that is only possible with Mangalashtak in marriage.
The groom’s bride stands opposite him, however, he cannot see her due to the cloth.
