Asian wedding photography, in particular Indian wedding photography, is very popular in the UK and I have been extremely fortunate throughout my career to document many couples on the happiest day of their lives.
What I love most about Asian wedding photography is how much colour, noise and vibrancy there is, that no Asian wedding I photograph is ever the same and these weddings are a real feast for the senses. I also love seeing families coming together, enjoying themselves and celebrating the love of two people who have agreed to spend the rest of their lives together.
Being able to capture those special moments from the day, in beautiful photographs for the couple and family to treasure forever, is a huge privilege.
Hindu Weddings are usually hosted at large hotels or banqueting halls. For the main wedding ceremony, a covered structure with pillars called a Mandap is temporarily erected for the purpose of a Hindu or Jain wedding ceremony. They also often come with beautiful royal chairs for the bride and groom, side chairs for parents and a pedestal for the sacred fire.
For Sikh Weddings, the ceremony itself takes place at the Gurdwara before moving onto a large hotel or banqueting hall for the reception. Both Sikh and Hindu weddings are fast, colourful and vibrant with plenty of partying and celebrations.
Muslim weddings usually begin with the Iman arriving at the hotel, banqueting hall or manor house to conduct the Nikah, where excerpts from the Qu’ran are read and the exchange of vows takes place in front of witnesses for both partners. After the wedding ceremony, some Muslims may have large banquets or a celebratory party with close friends and family.
I’m also able to travel as a destination wedding photographer to many places around the world, such as my recent pre wedding shoot at the Amalfi Coast in Italy for Parminder and Pritpal – you can see a video above of this and read more in my blog post here.
