This past weekend, Sarah and I photographed Amanda + Sumantra’s 2-day wedding in Edmonton and what a wonderful weekend for a wedding it was. Amanda & Sumantra first discovered our work when we photographed Kelly & Brad’s wedding last summer. Amanda was the MC at their wedding and Kelly turned out to the one of the MCs at their wedding so it was great catching up with them again.
The weekend started on Friday with an Indian ceremony at the Bharatiya Cultural Centre on the south side. It was our first Indian ceremony and there were so many interesting elements to photograph. It was a very colorful ceremony filled with several important rituals, a few tears, and lots of joy. Amanda looked beautiful in a traditional sari and Sumantra looked great in his traditional robes. Pandit Laxman Sharma and Pandit Pankaj Dixit conducted the ceremony and did a great job of explaining the various rituals to those in attendance who were not familiar with some of the traditions and customs of an Indian ceremony.
The weekend continued on Saturday with a traditional western ceremony held on the back deck at the Edmonton Country Club. Amanda looked radiant in her beautiful gown and there were a few tears shed by everyone in the audience when she walked down the aisle with her father. After the ceremony and family photographs at the golf course, we headed over the University of Alberta to do photographs with the wedding party before returning to Edmonton Country Club for the reception. Here are a few more sneak peeks from Saturday. We can’t wait to share the rest with you once you’re back from your honeymoon!
