I'm a big fan of Marielle & Joe. I met Marielle while she was a bridesmaid at another wedding and shortly afterward she contacted me to photograph her own wedding. I was thrilled because I remembered, not just how beautiful she was, but how much fun she had that day!
And, yes, we had fun on her wedding day! You can tell just by all the smiles and laughing in these photos, the way they entered the room and, yes, Marielle was the bride who arm-wrestled another bride.
I loved being the photographer for their wedding and I always love shooting at the Lord Nelson. Take a look at some of her wedding photos and see for yourself the wonderful day I was able to be a part of!!
By the way, see Marielle's stunning bouquet? They were made by a newcomer on the block, Chelsea Lee Flowers and Chelsea's business has since exploded in popularity this summer - try to get her if you can! She's real sweet and her arrangements are truly stunning!

So my first Indian Wedding! I had a lot to learn. I really wanted to, not only make sure I caught all the small, intricate, important traditions that were surely to occur, but to also not be completely lost when people mentioned terms like Mehendi, Pitthi or Gaye Holud, Sangeet, Baraat, Milni, etc. Although, I knew I wasn't going to understand the Sanskrit ceremony but if I was familiar and ready for all the parts, then I wouldn't miss a thing.
This event, called the Guye Holud and is part of the brides' Bengali heritage, happened a few days before the wedding day and included both families getting together to celebrate the bride and groom. Turmeric paste is applied to the bride and grooms' faces by each of the guests, and although it started out very sweet and proper, at the end, the grooms fellas made sure the he was to be 'fully adorned' by this yellow paste! Then sweets, food and traditional dancing!

After shooting the Gaye Holud a few nights earlier, I knew I was in for a whirlwind of tradition, colour & cheering followed by a great meal and lots of dancing. I was familiar with all the small traditions and formalities I'd be seeing but I really wanted to make sure I captured all them accurately. From the joyful Baraat (groom arriving on a horse with all his family) to the cheerful Milni (relatives of the bride and groom embrace (bear hug) and greet each other with garlands) to all the rituals happening under the mandap - it was important to me that I didn't miss anything and that I captured all the emotion that I was about to be surrounded with.
I was also nervous about the fact that it was going to be happening during Halifax's biggest annual event, the Buskers Festival. I really wanted to shoot a lot downtown but didn't want to get a bunch of tourists and crowds in their images. I'm quite pleased I was able to make it seem like they were the only ones down there.
I was very happy to be working with the ladies over at Elegant Productions, an event coordination and decorating company that specializes in weddings. Not only are they a treat to be around, they make my job a whole lot easier. The bride (and her mom) is less stressed knowing everything is looked after and every wedding I've been to with them at the helm has gone wonderfully smooth.
I really care for Sindura & Aneesh. They are really wonderful people and I'm blessed that they allowed me to participate in their day and I'm thrilled to be able to deliver these (and over 1000 more) images from their wedding! I hope you enjoy this quick rundown of their day.
