After seeing Alfred & Geeta’s photo slideshow during their dinner, Raj and Charan approached me on that same night saying that they were keen on hiring Wedding Story to cover their Sikh wedding. I was really excited as I’ve never covered a Sikh wedding celebration. Yesterday was the first day of celebrations starting with the groom and bride’s Sangeet. Held separately, it’s a joyous occasion where the groom and bride are individually covered with mustard oil on their faces and body.
There’s lots of singing and dancing, mainly the women are the ones participating. Since I am in the midst of preparing their express slideshow to be shown tomorrow night at the main dinner, I thought I’d share a few shots here. Tonight will be the bride’s mehndi, and then tomorrow the temple ceremony. Looking forward to it! I LOVE cultural ceremonies and colours!!
Part of the ceremony involves a woman being dressed as a man. There were 2 in this party. :)
