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

Kunal and Ashita's e-session (pre-wedding) photo-shoot 

in Rhodes.





















































We met Ashita and Kunal earlier this year at the Indian Bridal Expo in Castle Hill. 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. We then threw a challenge to kunal if he could lift Ashita - only kidding as he could do that easily. Both of them were great in front of the camera which helped in getting a lot of different poses. We then moved to centre piece of the Kokoda Track Memorial - Granite walls on which images of the New Guinea Campaign have been sandblasted. 

Later, some amazing shots were taken sitting on the pier, facing the bay. In just under 1.5 hours, we had all shots we aimed for. One of the photos has been chosen by the couple to be framed in to a canvas and will be displayed on their wedding day. 

Looking forward to the wedding.

Indian Bridal Shoot (Fuleku ceremony) - Traditional Hindu Wedding Ceremony

The ceremony of Fuleku (Phuleku) is a rarity these days within Hindu Wedding Ceremonies. Traditionally Fuleku ceremony involves the to-be groom rides on the horse-back around the entire village prior to the actual wedding ceremony. This gives everyone a chance to know who is going to be the groom of one of the girls of their village. This ceremony is usually a symbol of pride for the bride's parents who are very proud of the to-be son-in-law and would like to advertise this emotion to the entire village. However, Fuleku (namesake only) tradition for the below blog is where the bride (to-be) is invited for dinner to her sister's (or some other female relative like aunty) place prior to the wedding. This is supposed to be a very casual evening with lots of dances, extensive palette of cuisine and lots of banter between the sisters and their husbands.  Hemangi's wedding was in the town of Jamnagar in the state of Gujarat. However, her Fuleku ceremony took place in t

Bridal Looks From Different Traditional Cultures Of India That Are Fascinating

Bridal Looks From Different Traditional Cultures Of India That Are Fascinating The best thing about Indian culture is its exquisiteness.

HINDU WEDDING CEREMONY OF FISHING FOR THE RING

Indian Weddings are vibrant, musical and loaded with religious and traditional ceremonies/rituals. Grandeur, a variety of food, color, music, dancing and fun are seamlessly blended with culture and heritage in Indian weddings. Each ritual has a story or a deep meaning to it.  This chapter of the blog will discuss one of the traditional rituals of 'Fishing the Ring. I have seen this ritual performed in Gujarati, Punjabi and Tamil Weddings and always brings a lot of applauds and laughter from the newly wed and the guests. When the couple appears as man and wife before the family gathering for the first time, the big question is who will be the dominant person in  their relationship. The game/ritual of ' Fishing the Ring' is conducted to answer this question.  One of the newlywed's rings is placed in a pot of milk (or water mixed with various spices to make the water opaque). and asking the couple to 'fish'. Whoever finds the ring first i
