Harinder and Lee had an amazing fusion of cultures for their wedding. Throughout the video, Harinder is always dancing which definitely highlights her personality and her excitement of getting married!
Harinder’s dad said the most amazing thing which almost brought tears to my eyes as it was so beautiful:
“When two cultures can share their love through the marriages of their children, regardless of their caste, creed or origin, there is some hope for the world”
The first wedding was a Sikh ceremony on the Friday held at the Gurdwara in Blackburn. Harinder looks so stunning in her Indian bridal attire, looking like a beautiful traditional South Asian bride. Lee was wearing a sherwani and had his head covered by wearing a turban. I personally think it’s so great that non-Sikh grooms really get involved and wear the whole wardrobe for the role of the groom at the Sikh ceremony. Gurdwara’s nowadays have the prayers translated on a projector which is so useful for those guests who don’t understand the language and they have a chance to understand the meaning behind the prayers.
The second ceremony was on the Saturday at St Catherine’s Greek Orthodox Church in East Malvern. When Harinder is walking down the aisle with her father, Wheelhouse studios switch to when she is walking in the Gurdwara to the Guru Granth Sahib. I love that aspect of videography as it reflects, again, both cultures. It is so great to be able to see how a Greek Orthodox wedding ceremony works as I personally had no idea of their traditions.
Can I also mention how amazing her dress and the bridesmaids’ dresses were?
