Like many other couples, Ashleigh and Nakul planned their culturally diverse wedding for 2020, but due to Covid, they had to reschedule twice. They were finally able to tie the knot last June, and wow what a stunning wedding!
The couple’s multicultural wedding (Indian-Canadian) incorporated a mix of both cultures throughout the day — Ashley wore a white dress for her Canadian culture, but she also did henna for Nakul’s Indian culture. We started the day with a Baraat, a groom’s wedding procession where he travels to the wedding venue on a mare and is accompanied by his family members. Immediately after, a traditional western ceremony took place which also incorporated Indian rituals. Then, we went for the bridal party photos at The Muttart Conservatory and River Valley in Edmonton. It was a large group of 10 bridesmaids, 10 groomsmen, and 1 groom lady. All of them gave their best and went in with the best attitude we have ever seen. Always happy, singing, dancing, and super relaxed.
Something we love about Indian weddings is the dances they prepare for the couple. The emotion from seeing everyone dancing together touched our hearts. The energy and vibe they were showing was incredible!
A big surprise for all the wedding guests, and the couple, was Nakul´s dad, who did the last effort to attend the wedding even though he was in the hospital. His presence at the wedding made our hearts so happy as he was able to witness that beautiful wedding of his only child getting married to the love of his life. Sadly, Nakul´s father past away a week after that, but they will cherish the fact of being able to enjoy this together and we feel so honoured to have been able to capture it.
