You may remember Gags and Georgina from their lovely wedding at Horsted Place Hotel in September.  But there was more to come – I met up with them the following Thursday for the start of the Sikh ceremonies …. a wonderful family evening of celebration and traditions including Georgina’s uncle placing red bangles onto her arms, having her hands and feet decorated by a henna artist and much dancing! This was then followed on the Friday by the Sikh wedding ceremony in the Gurdwara.

This was the first time I had photographed a Sikh Wedding and a big thank you to Gags for this detailed brief on all the different ceremonies.2016-04-11_00352016-04-11_00362016-04-11_00382016-04-11_0039

Then it was time for everyone to head home for a good night’s sleep before the Sikh ceremony the following day.

I am very grateful to my second shooter, Adam from Adam Trigg Photography, who joined me the next day and he headed off to see Georgina and her sister getting ready in the morning…

Whilst I joined Gags at his parents house…. all evidence of the party the night before was cleaned away and everyone on good form.. with an impressive number of assistants to help Gags with his turban!

And then we headed off to the ceremony at Sri Guru Singh Sabha in Alice Way, Hounslow to meet up with the bridal party and guests, on a wonderfully sunny September day.
