Put on your dance shoes and get ready to balle balle, screw on that light bulb, sweep the floor, crowd surf and party like a rock star. Yes. I love Sikh weddings purely because they know how to throw a good party. I also love all the colour, the pre-wedding parties and of course the traditions and rituals that are followed, so this is my ultimate guide to a Sikh wedding. It may not be the perfect guide, but it’s what I know and what I have learnt from the many Sikh weddings I have covered
Matt and Zoe tied the knot at the wonderful Blakeland’s Country House in a beautiful civil ceremony. Although it rained during the day, the weather certainly didn’t put a dampener on the couple’s wedding day. Zoe got ready at the venue with her nearest and dearest. She wore a beautiful white princess wedding dress while her bridesmaids work long navy gowns.
Zoe’s father proudly walked her down the aisle to begin her journey into married life. The ceremony began and the vows were exchanged. After the couple were officially married, they headed out of the ceremony into another room for mingling and canapés. They were congratulated by their guests before starting the formal guest portraits. As it was raining we chose a scenic room with enough daylight to capture the groups with the couple. Once the group formals were finished, the attention turned to Matt and Zoe in their couples photoshoot session. The rain still hadn’t stopped so we opted to do the shoot indoors in the many pockets of beauty Blakelands Country House had to offer. This place oozed daylight! A photographers dream!
Our photographers were able to capture the beautiful rustic reception decor before anyone entered. Once guests were seated and the wedding breakfast was served, the speeches began. Both Zoe and Matts fathers and the couples friend gave speeches and Matt himself took to the mic to share his happiness and thanks to all the guests. The speeches were filled with laughter and joy to set the tone of this fun loving couple.
After the speeches the rained had eased up so we took the guests outside to get a big group shot of them all together with the couple for a confetti shot before they headed back in doors. We were able to capture more couples shots outdoors which gave us a variety of images for the couples album.
he couple made their grand entrance into the reception to cut their cake and then take to the dance floor for their very first dance as Mr and Mrs.
We really enjoyed photographing your beautiful rustic wedding and want to thank you for choosing us to capture your day.
