a hindu wedding, reena and amar, oxford

what’s not to love about Hindu weddings ?  firstly, there is red !  lots of it.  yay !  sparkles, jewelled red veils, henna-decorated hands and feet, bangles up to your elbows, incense, fire … i could go on and on …  the elegance of a sari, and … ah … malai kofta !  the groom gets his feet washed by the bride’s parents { always creates a few smirks } .. the bride and groom get fed nibbly sweet titbits throughout the ceremony.  i was lucky to already know Amar’s family when i shot this very special hindu wedding at Poundon House in the beautiful historic city of Oxford.  i had photographed his brother’s wedding two years ago in Palma de Mallorca.  Amar referred to me as “the family photographer”.  i was so touched by this.   there is always something so celebratory and sacred in the traditions of a hindu wedding.  i am always moved.  i hope the pics move you just as much.
