Bombay Palace

Bombay Palace is a premier banquet facility conveniently located in Brampton. Their Palace Ballroom hosted this couple’s wedding reception. It’s always so much fun when I get to photograph the various aspects of an Indian wedding. The reception itself has so many parts. We’re talking speeches, games, and guest performances. Both the bride and groom were Indian. And customary with most South Asian weddings, they were festive and colourful.

Their portrait session was intended to be at a park near the Four Points hotel where they were getting ready. However, the sporadic thunderstorms landed during our original time slot. So instead, we waiting until their afternoon costume change. There was obviously less time at this point so I had to work a little magic with the hotel’s parking lot. Hey, it’s an Indian wedding. It’s not like I need a lot to make them look fabulous.

Backyard Wedding

A backyard wedding is perfect for couples who love to be outdoors and want a uniquely sentimental feel for their big day. South Asian Weddings are often grand multilayered events. So in a case like this, the couple’s parents can play a significant role by hosting one of the key events. There are so many benefits to a backyard wedding, including cost and convenience. But with those benefits come a few extra details you need to keep in mind. For a Hindu ceremony, how you build a mandap is a big one. And with the wedding ceremony being so long, providing enough seats for all your guests can be challenging.

Whether your backyard is small or sprawling, you’ll want to pay particular attention to where you set up your ceremony. Large trees make for the perfect backdrop and provide shade from harsh sunlight. It also reduces any reflective color transfer from the mandap drapery you choose to use. Keep in mind that, if you’re getting married in warm months, you’ll want to keep your guests’ chairs out of direct sunlight before the ceremony. Or at least choose a shaded spot to set up chairs.

This May wedding did have a very sunny day with a chance of showers. The groom’s family was able to arrange the ceremony mandap outdoors with a nearby tent if the weather turned sour. The mandap shade worked beautifully for the sun yet still kept the ceremony nice and bright. All the colors of the bride and groom’s attire brightened up the setup even further which led to some very culturally festive photos.

The second shooter for this wedding was Samir Kumar.

I’ll also be seeing Eva and Sagar again when I photograph their son’s newborn session.
