Indian Wedding Photography – Radhika & Param

Wednesday, April 27th, 2011

What can I say about Radhika and Param’s wedding ceremony last Saturday….simply stunning in every way. Full of wonderful tradition, colour, love and laughter.  I love the bartering that constantly goes on to progress the ceremony, even to get shoes back to the Bride and Groom.

Radhika and Param, thank you for entrusting these special moments to Gary and I and allowing one2one to capture your wedding day.

Here are a few of our favourites. Steve

Indian Wedding Photography, Grah Shantak – Radhika’s Family

Friday, April 22nd, 2011

Today we attended the Temple for the Grah Shantak for Radhika’s family. This is a very important religious ceremony. Both sets of parents are the primary figures in the invocation. On behalf of the parents, the officiating priests ask the deities to ensure stellar harmony and peace during the period of their son and daughter’s wedding.

The bride takes a coconut to her parents who are seated on ‘patlas’ (low stools) in front of the sacred fire and seats herself beside them. While the priest is performing the ‘puja’, she hands this ‘shriphal’ (coconut) to her parents, who in turn hand it over to the priest for ‘ahuti’ (sacrifice). The coconut is consigned to flames, thus propagating peace and harmony between all the nine planets.

Here’s a few of our favourites from today. Steve
