We are swooning over these amazing detail shots brought to us by Shandro Photo. Check ‘em out:
From the bride : While planning our wedding my husband and I knew we wanted to have two ceremonies to represent both of our cultures; with both a Sikh and Christian ceremony. We also wanted the ceremonies to be held on different days to fully execute the traditions for a Sikh and Christian Wedding. I had envisioned my wedding to be elegant, classy but also modern and filled with tradition. I knew from the beginning that I did not want to wear the traditional maroon lengha. My mom, aunt, cousin and I flew to India and Philippines to find the perfect bridal outfit that I had envisioned. We found a gorgeous cream colored suit with gold and bronze embroidery that I immediately fell in love with. Born and raised in the Philippines I wanted to incorporate some Filipino details into the Sikh ceremony. Traditionally my brothers and cousins who were to walk me around the Guru Granth Sahib would wear an atchkin; I decided to go with a traditional Filipino dress shirt called a Barong Tagalog. For the reception we wanted both cultures to blend and they did exactly that. My parents danced to socca music for the first time, a popular type of music from Trinidad where my husband is from; while my in laws danced to bhangra music.
Stayed tuned a lot more details from this lovely Indian fusion wedding.
