Asian wedding photographer in Yorkshire19th October 2010 Reel Life Photos
Unlike standard UK weddings, Asian weddings always tend to be organised at last minute, and rather than being a busy , one day affair, they spread out over a week with countless relatives all parading in front on the decorated stage for group photographs. I always wear Asian dress, and like the bride and guests need a different outfit for each day, so feel just like any other guest, except that am on my feet all day carrying heavy cameras and a video light for extra sparkle. There is the Nikah (usually quite low-key Islamic wedding ceremony at the bride's house) the Mehndi ( the day the bride and all her female family get their hands and feet decorated with intricate designs in henna) and the Walima (reception) - usually the Saturday is the bride's reception, and the Sunday is the Groom's reception. See a few pics from last week's Asian wedding at the Al-Hikmah Centre in Batley: http://weddingphotos-video.co.uk/blog/?p=2012 more coming soon under All Day wedding pictures on our site too: http://www.reellifephotos.co.uk.
