Being a wedding cinematographer allows me to cover weddings and civil ceremonies that span across a number of different cultures, meaning that no two ceremonies are ever the same, as each couple bring their own unique take on their special day.
Kiran and Gurshinder were one such couple who were not only a pleasure to shoot, but really put the ground work in to create a truly beautiful day rick with ancient tradition, love and laughter.
The Sikh ceremony took place at the Sri Guru Singh Sabha in Southall, a Sikh Gurdwara that’s not only the largest Sikh temple within London, but also one of the largest Sikh temples situated outside of India.
Family and friends joined together to witness the union of Kiran and Gurshinder, which really showcased just how important this wonderful couple are to both their friends and family. The ceremony was rich with Sikh culture which combined bold colours, mesmerising music and classic Sikh tradition to full effect, creating a truly memorable day.
Following the ceremony at Sri Guru Singh Sabha, both the happy couple and their family moved onto the Lancaster Hotel in London, a modern luxury hotel that look over London’s beautiful Hyde Park.
The reception allowed the couple to receive many congratulations from their friends, as well as listening to some truly emotional and moving speeches delivered by Gurshinder. The celebrations carried out into the night as friends and family took full advantage of the dance floor and celebrated the union of the happy couple into the small hours.
Attending ceremonies such as this reminds me how lucky I am to shoot weddings and ceremony video as a career. Wedding cinematography really help capture the mood and emotion felt on the day, meaning that the happy couple can relive their special day as many times as they wish. A wedding cinematography is also ideal for those close friends and family who may not have been able to attend the original ceremony, or just want a keepsake of the special day.
