We hope you got a chance to see Part One of Ramiza and Aaron’s wedding blog post, where we shared photos from their western wedding! Now we’re excited to share their Indian wedding celebrations.
This is something we are so excited to share, as Ramiza and Aaron’s were the first Indian wedding traditions we’ve ever photographed. It was so touching to be part of these events with Ramiza and Aaron.
First, we met up with all the women at Ramiza’s parents home in Surrey for Ramiza’s mehndi party. What a treat, to be a fly on the wall during this tradition of beautifying the bride. It was quite a setting to see – the concentrated stillness of the women creating these intricate mehndi designs, the buzzing chatter of women being painted, and of course, the laughter and glee of dancing to celebrate Ramiza’s happiness.
The following night we met back up with them for their intimate marriage ceremony. Everyone donned their beautiful wedding attire to partake in ceremony traditions, prayers, marriage blessings, guest photos, and the most delicious homemade cuisine EVER.
On the third day, it was time to celebrate! Ramiza and Aaron and their guest met again at the Paradise Banquet Hall in Surrey for their reception, speeches, photos, and dancing to celebrate their union. What an amazing weekend!
Congratulations of your marriage Ramiza and Aaron, and thank you for involving us in all your fantastic celebrations.
Here are some of our favourite moments!
