Here is the second part of Gary and Grettel’s East Indian Wedding blog post.
I remember the day before their wedding. I was looking at the weather forecast and it didn’t look good, it looked really bad. I always have a “plan B” but being that it was my first East Indian wedding I really wanted some amazing weather. As well, parts of an East Indian wedding take place outside. I woke up on the day of their wedding and the weather wasn’t looking good. I was still so excited and we were prepared for any type of weather so I went ahead with my day as if the sun was shining. When it came time to take photos of the wedding festivities outside it was yucky… like torrential wind and rain. We grabbed an umbrella and went with it.
There is so much tradition that comes with any wedding but I really loved so many parts of Gary and Grettel’s wedding day. There were so much food, so much colour, so much meaning behind every part of the day and i’m thankful to Gary, Grettel and their families for taking the time to explain it to us so that we understood what we were documenting and capturing.
Here is a peek in to the temple ceremony, as well as the festivities after the temple at Gary’s parents house.
PS: We can’t wait to photograph another East Indian Wedding!
Thank you Lindsay for being a trooper helping me photograph this wedding. We really did rock it!
