Pre-Wedding (E-Session) Photo-shoot at Rhodes Park, Sydney - Gujarati-Fiji-Indian

Earlier it was decided to shoot at The Rocks but then ended up meeting at the Rhodes Park late afternoon on a Sunday. Ashita was dressed in a beautiful blue saree, had a perfect make-up on and Kunal was comfortable in his semi-casuals. We started by taking some posed pictures and then moved to casual shots.

Indian Wedding Reception-Dinner Seating and Food Serving Options

Depending upon your budget, preference and the theme (formal, classic, fun, elegant or a combination of all) of your wedding reception you may choose from various available options: a. Formal sit-down plated dinner : Also known as the "American Style" (for some reason), not only is this style one of the very formal ones but also very elegant. Each course is served in individual plates for each guests with the right amount of sauce and spicing.

Alka and Gursewak's Wedding Reception  at  Sapphire Function Centre, Auburn Running through a series of functions/ceremonies on the day, we arrived to the most awaited part - the reception dinner, which was held at THE SAPPHIRE FUNCTION CENTRE, AUBURN. The arrangements and the stage looked as wonderful as the couple. The couple's love story goes back many years. The bride was such a sweetheart and loved to chat. She had an amazing smile that added a silver lining to all photographs. The groom was initially a little conscious in front of the camera, but we made sure to crack a joke or two just before the click to have a smile on his face - only kidding. They made a lovely couple - truly made for each other. Carrying on with the formalities of the evening, the bridal party had a grand entrance and a special music for the same. Shortly after their entry, they performed the cake cutting ceremony. It was a beautifully decorated cake, quite temp
