Over the 2012 Spring Bank Holiday weekend, we were involved with no less than FIVE separate wedding events for our next couple, Natasha & Harprit. This included the Maiyan, Bride’s side Pre-Wed Party, Groom’s side Pre-Wed Party, Sikh Wedding Ceremony, whilst the final day involved us covering the Civil Wedding and Reception. Phew!
SalShan Photo & Cinema specialise in covering multiple-event weddings, and this was one of our biggest yet. Did I mention that we also did a pre-wed couple shoot earlier in the year for them too? That makes it six separate outings (I’m running out of fingers!)
Having sampled the fun and games of their pre-wed parties, we knew when it came to the main reception, held at the prestigious Dunchurch Park, Natasha & Harprit’s family and friends would ‘go hard’ so to speak. Being involved with many Sikh and Punjabi weddings over the past four years, N&H’s reception party has to rank very high up there in terms of dancefloor madness! As soon as the cake was cut, the floor opened to the crowd and remained packed and energised until the DJs could spin their tracks no more! DJs Raju & Harv from Kudos did a fab job.
It was a great honour to have covered their Sikh Wedding Ceremony at Central Gurdwara – Khalsa Jatha, which stands as the oldest established Sikh place of worship in Europe. This beautiful, traditional Gurdwara is located within Kensington, London and is over 100 years old! In typical British fashion, it rained for most of the morning, but the sun came out to play just in time for the couple photo-shoot!
Techie stuff: This was our very first wedding using the brand spanking new Canon EOS C300 camcorder. A few of the shots made it into the short film, but in general it was used as a spare camera set up on the side, to enable us to get an idea of what it was capable of. At first glance, the incredible 1080p footage certainly looks ah-maze-ing… time will tell if we fully integrate the camera within our already five-star setup.
Congratulations to Harprit & Natasha and their families & friends
