Located off the busy  Parramata  Road,  HIMALAYA RESTAURANT  in GRANVILLE on Good Street forms a great venue for reception parties. The warm and welcoming staff were pleased to arrange all the requirements for Aarti & Yuvraj's reception party. The highlight of the evening which seemed to be a big favourite amongst kids as well as elders  was  the 'Strawberry & Chocolate Fountain' arranged by It was beautifully set up by the team and everyone seemed to enjoy it at its best. (The chocolate fountain with strawberrys was a big hit. Contact ' Impressive Hampers ' for enquiries) The couple looked stunning for their big evening. Aarti was dressed up all in red wearing a lehengha with traditional jewellery & Yuvraj in Indian traditional wear called 'Sherwani,' they looked perfect for each other. Before the guests arrived, I took a few shots for the couple in their lovely outfits. Once all the guests a


The day was 5th May 2011, and I drove down to Minto which was quite a drive from North Strathfield. Luckily it was after the peak  rush period and the roads were fairly empty.

We arrived at the temple around 10 am along with my videographer friend Mark @ to shoot the "baraat" as they entered the temple.

Aarti was wearing a traditional Punjabi dress coupled with chuda (Chura or bangles) which had golden tomb like danglings to it, of
