Rishi and Nivi wedding spanned out over three days in line with the Hindu tradition. The first day of the wedding was dedicated to Sangeet, an evening of music that is arranged before the wedding. The event was a colourful affair filled with fun and laughter as many of the guests took to the dance floor to bring live to this much-loved tradition.
The second day was dedicated to Mandvo, Pithl and Masaro. This tradition sees the groom pasted with a turmeric powder that is treated as a beautification process which often takes place within the home of the groom.
The third day was dedicated to the Hindu wedding ceremony itself, and was nothing short of spectacular. Beautiful colours and inspired attire ensured that the wedding was an homage to the Hindu tradition, while being a day that was filled with laughter and emotion.
I shoot wedding videos for couples from all walks of life, and it allows me to explore other cultures and their traditions which often make for a wonderful wedding video that is not only emotional, but also aesthetically pleasing.
Wedding videos are becoming popular among couples from all backgrounds, as it offers a compact representation of the day without losing the emotion that was felt on the day. Although wedding photographs will always be treasured, a wedding video offers couples the chance to actually relive the day over and over.
A wedding video is also ideal for any family and friends who were unable to make the initial wedding, meaning that don’t lose out on witnessing the partnership between a couple and the celebrations that ensued.
It is clear that Rishi and Nivi are besotted with each other, and I was proud to be part of their big day. I wish them all the best for the future and I feel blesses to have worked alongside the two, as well as their family and friends.
