Sikh Australian Wedding by Jagminder Singh Photography
Apr 12, 2016
We are heading to the land down under today for a Sikh indian wedding shot by Jagminder Singh Photography. The couple, Satnam and Harshi, kicked off their wedding day festivities with a week long affair. Read below for special details regarding the couple's big day!
"Satnam and Harshi's Punjabi wedding brought together their respective families from Australia and New Zealand for a week-long celebration in Melbourne, Australia. Relatives also flew in from India, Canada and the U.K. to celebrate the exciting new chapter of the couple’s lives as they journey into marriage and continue with their love story."
The guests were treated to an array of pre-wedding events infused with vibrant colours, delicious foods and lots of dancing and laughter. The festivities began with the bride and grooms intimate Haldi and Mehndi ceremonies, followed by a traditional Punjabi Jago and Sangeet night on the eve of the wedding. It was a beautiful site to see the effort that close friends and family had put into helping organize all the events. With a surprise performance by the bride’s family and her own cameo in a dance number at the sangeet, the night had all the elements of being a remembered occasion.
The wedding ceremony was oozing with grandeur and elegance. From the magnificent Rolls Royce in which the groom arrived, right down to the intricacy of the bride’s stunning outfit, the attention to detail truly created a feeling of style and grace. The traditional Anand Karaj ceremony was held at the beautiful Sikh Temple in Craigieburn and with over 500 guests in attendance, it was definitely a grand event. Following the ceremony the couple were whisked away to have their photos taken at the picturesque Carlton Gardens in Melbourne’s CBD. The timeless architecture of the Exhibition building and the striking water feature provided a stunning background for the photoshoot.
I absolutely adore the bride's lengha. The intricate detail, pale pink and gold lengha and jewelry to match were absolute perfection! Also love the mini bouquets the bridesmaid's carried. Perfect blend of east meets west!
"The Reception followed the day after the wedding and was held at The Peninsula on the Melbourne Docklands. The glistening waterfront provided a stunning backdrop for the outdoor cocktails before guests stepped into the magical wonderland of Gatsby themed centrepieces, crystal chandeliers and white ceiling drapes. The bride wanted to create a feeling for the guests that they were in a completely different world for the night. With the help of peacock coloured lighting, a photo booth, a giant dance floor, and some beautifully crafted thank-you cards and chocolates, the guests were treated to an unforgettable, fairy tale night."
