Tones Of Turmeric | Creative Styled Shoot 2020

Love is not cancelled and our shoot is a reminder of that…

Inspired by the North Indian Haldi, Gujarati Pithi or South Indian Nelengu ceremonies of an Indian wedding.

Covid 19 might have changed the way weddings take place but our Tones of Turmeric shoot (sprinkled with the vibrancy, gorgeousness and traditions modern millennial brides have come to love) is just a glimpse of how to host an intimate affair in your home.

Alex & Mary Ann’s Wedding | The Blades Hotel

A mix of South Indian, German and South African cultures blended together at Alex & Ann’s Wedding. We were excited to shoot this couple’s wedding as it was our first time shooting a South Indian Christian wedding. It was an incredible experience being surrounded by different cultures & traditions; and so inspiring to witness this couple embrace and celebrate their heritage & culture.

Every culture has its own traditions and customs that differ through out the world. Likewise, Christian weddings in South India blend Indian and Western rituals. Still very much attached to their Indian culture, this couple incorporated some Western customs to their wedding as well.
