Living in Canada has one big advantage. You don’t need to physically travel different countries to experience completely exotic moments. I was so thrilled when Cheryl & Alex invited me to photograph their Indo-Caribbean Hindu wedding. I knew it will be colorful which I love. I think you can tell from my style of photography that I simply love colors.
There is also something special to me about this couple. The first time they emailed me, I had immediate connection with them as they were very open and showed their humorous side. Then, when I met them in person. The deal was sealed. We became friends. I do have very nice friendship with most of the couples I photographed, however this one is quite different. They are relaxed, very honest, funny, love to laugh and love life in general. I have a feeling we will stay in touch for a very long time.
So how was the wedding? Long one…:) First day I’ve had the pleasure to photograph their exotic ceremony. I loved the fact it was so intimate. When I came there, I asked where am I allowed to move and photograph as I wasn’t too sure and I don’t want to upset anyone. I was surprised by these words: “You can do absolutely whatever you like. Everyone is welcomed here, you can be wherever you like.” I am normally used to many rules. As you can tell from photos, there were many different cultures. We were invited to sit as close as we could to experience the ceremony with Cheryl & Alex. Here and there I caught myself just staring. I had to remind myself to start taking photos again. It was simply that incredible.
Second day I photographed their official wedding photos and reception which I will introduce next time…
For now, take a look at this spectacular Indo-Caribbean Hindu Wedding from Toronto.
