1. Recently I had an opportunity to shoot a Punjabi wedding. Thanks to the groom for choosing me as their photographer for the important event. The session was in 3 parts over the course of 2 days, a family gathering on the 1st day, temple ceremony on the 2nd day & the reception dinner during the night. 2. The Family Gathering
The family gathering is to invite the couple's friends and family. It was just a simple get together. While the bride had henna drawings on her hands and legs, her friends didn't want to miss out as well.
The evening went on with more chatting, eating, and dancing.
3. The Temple Ceremony
The 2nd day started as early as 6.30am with the bride & groom preparing for the temple at 9am. Of course the bride needed more time to get ready. The session started with make up for the bride.
The groom needed lesser attention. The most important item was the turban. He had help from a senior member of the family.
The make up for the bride was simple yet very it turned out to be stunning. I wasted no time to capture the final look before we left for the temple.
They had picked that particular day for the wedding ceremony as it was an auspicious day for the Sikhs. The ceremony went on well, of course guided by a more senior member of the family on what was going to happen next.
4. The Reception Dinner
In the evening, we proceeded to the event space for the reception dinner. It was a very clean and beautiful event space in Jalan Ampang, KL.
Registration began after 6pm
Everyone was then seated... waiting for the newlyweds to arrive.
During the dinner, the guests were entertained by Ray Cheong (Singer), Papi Zak (Comedian) & Ahmed Ahmed (Comedian).
Soon after, speeches from both the parents & close friends,... photo sessions,... and the ladies proceeded to dancing to Banghra music.
Having experienced all that, I had a wonderful 2 days shooting this special occasion. It was a colourful experience & everyone was nice and friendly. I can't wait for my next Indian or Punjabi wedding shoot.
Congratulations to Jay & Patty.
Thank you for spending the time to read my sharing.
