Well apparently it’s hard to find a really great wedding photographer in India and after Nida stumbled upon my work online and fell in love, Farid and her thought it might be a nice idea to have a little photo session in their home town of Sydney… to really show off her dress!
So this really is a Post-wedding Photography session. Such a great idea!
Nida is wearing an absolutely stunning hand made dress that Farid’s mum helped design, her hands and arms adorn with Henna and covered in traditional Hindu wedding jewellery, she looks beautiful.
Farid looking quite smart as well of course with that funky bow-tie!
Here are a selection of my faves from our little 2 hour session in the beautiful Centennial Park in Sydney.
I was really looking forward to photographing my first (and hopefully not my last) traditional Hindu Indian wedding. Not only do I have Indian heritage but amazing colours are one thing that I love as a photographer. I travel the world looking for such vibrancy as an Indian wedding day offers, and here it was at home in Sydney.
We started with the traditional Henna application a few days before the wedding, the Mehndi, and what a way to get thrown into such an amazing tradition….it was a beautiful experience. Fareha from Fareha Bridal Studio sure is talented with that Henna brush.
Then the wedding…what can I say…”Wow!!”
Sydney certainly turned on it’s charm for us, but the details, personal touches and all the planning that all of their families and friends put into this day, was what made it so exceptional.
Aniket and Reshma, such a beautiful couple, both very genuine to the heart, the kind of people who I could never imagine saying a bad word about any one….the kind of couple you live to photograph!
Thanks guys, for being so kind, colourful and inspirational, and for trusting my own creative license completely, on your big day, knowing that it was my first Traditional Indian Wedding.
Here are a few pics from the day – hard to choose, so many left out, but oh well…..
A little Ravi Shankar to set the mood
Matt would like to thank Tessa Tran for her priceless help on the day.
