What’s better than photographing an amazing wedding ceremony? Photographing two amazing ceremonies… in one day!
Kesh and Fiona didn’t just have one wedding… they were married twice, at The Matara Centre in Kingscote. In case you haven’t already seen Kesh and Fiona’s pre-wedding shoot at Matara and in the surrounding woods, it’s right here.
The first ceremony was a riot of colour, a stunning Hindu ceremony starting with the guests dancing into the venue ahead of Kesh and an energetic garland ceremony, followed by a traditional Hindu marriage celebration. Fiona’s was dressed beautifully in a bejewelled red wedding dress, having had mehndi applied to her hands the day before.
After lots of photos, a bite to eat and a walk in the woods, Fiona and Kesh did it all again, this time outside in the main space at Matara. As Fiona had to keep her wedding bangles on for 7 days after the Hindu ceremony, she still had them on for the civil ceremony, which looked incredible against her white dress and mehndi.
It really was a fabulous day, with a massive amount of dancing, colour, celebration and laughter – it couldn’t have happened to two nicer people! This was all very new to me but I truly hope this will be the first of many Hindu wedding ceremonies that I photograph.
There won’t be a massive wait for the civil ceremony blogpost…it will be appearing right here this time tomorrow!
In the meantime, there are a huge amount more images of the whole day here along with the opportunity to buy prints. Fiona and Kesh will be sending the password out very soon! Please also comment on the blogpost below – it would be great to hear from you if you were at the wedding – especially those that have flown back to Canada! There’s a few more images on facebook too.
