Favourite Asian Wedding Portraits
The vibrant colours, the potent smell of mendhi in the air, the drums, the music, the choreographed dance routines, the sombre cultural and religious rituals all contribute to an incredible Asian wedding event. Coming from an Asian heritage I can truly understand the cultural background behind the marriage ceremony and have deep respect for the traditional aspect of it. Being a female wedding photographer it helps when there is segregation for muslim wedding photos. It also helps when shooting the bride dressing up and getting her makeup done. I love the pomp and ceremony of an Asian marriage as they are so joyful. The outfits are incredible and usually one-off couture pieces, hand stitched with so much detail your mind boggles. Here are some of my favourite shots in Asian wedding photography to date.
