Multi-Day Sikh Wedding Masterpiece
Most couples during Covid downsized their wedding to the bare essentials. Amarinder and Harnoor did the polar opposite. Hey, if you’re only going to marry once, you might as well do it right. Yes, the guest count was small. Majority of the events were outdoors and spaced out. Everyone came vaccinated. So they did follow all the restrictions. However, one of the nice things of having such a small crowd, is it doesn’t stop you from having a big event. Or rather, a long event.
This Sikh Wedding was the longest wedding I’ve done in my career. It was a full 7 days of traditional festivities. And the couple running the show was absolutely epic. They found me a month before the big event. Even when the week started, they were still planning the days to come. How they kept up with the planning, and the celebrations while keeping their sanity… I will never know. I’m sure they had their stressful moments, but no bride/groomzillas appeared that entire week.
I provided both photo and video coverage of each Sikh Wedding Event. In order to help keep their numbers down, I provided both services without any additional crew. So obviously, the video wasn’t meant to be fancy. It was mostly just as documentary coverage since some of the events weren’t attended by both the bride and groom.
Day 7 Reception
Welcome to the final day of festivities for this Traditional Sikh Wedding. Elite Banquet Hall hosted this wedding reception. By now I know all the attending guests quite well. One of the key highlights of this event is it actually showcases the highlights of all the others. See most wedding receptions would have a highlight reel of photos taken of the couple throughout their relationship. In this case, I created one with photos throughout their wedding week. It was a great way to share the experience with guests who couldn’t attend every event. But also the couple who didn’t necessarily attend each event either.
