Lakshmi + Sanjay Wedding Photography

I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph the amazing wedding festivities that brought together the lives of the lovely couple, Lakshmi and Sanjay, capturing 4 spectacular days and all the special moments that were held within them.

Their celebrations began with the Henna night, a well-known Indian tradition; where the arms, hands and feet of Lakshmi and many of her guests was painted by the Henna artist in preparation for the big day. This was followed by two small and eloquent rituals, both relaxed affairs with close family and friends.

Next came the main event; the all-important nuptials! Lakshmi and Sanjay were wed at the picturesque Leonda by the Yarra, amongst a colourful array of both tradition and culture. Every moment of their meaningful Hindu ceremony was genuinely heartfelt leaving not a single dry eye in the room.

Following an awesome photo shoot at the Royal Exhibition Building and Carlton Gardens, the newly wedded couple were joined by family and friends at the Eureka Skydeck, for a perfectly intimate cocktail style reception, overlooking the spectacular Melbourne skyline nightscape, with the enjoyable celebrations of speeches, videos, dancing and laughter running long into the night.

Lakshmi and Sanjay, it was an honour to be a part of your wedding, you were both so amazing to work with and I hope the memories that I have captured for you is something you will cherish together forever.
