Guru Nanak Sikh Academy Temple traditional engagement ceremony in Hayes, London
Updated: Apr 14
In February I had the honour to photograph Harvine and Arjan's traditional engagement ceremony at the Guru Nanak Sikh Academy Temple in Hayes, London. This is where they receive blessings from their other halves families. Prayers and hymns were sung and read whilst ceremonies take place in a large hall. The couple primarily wanted a candid and documentary style of their day, this involved me photographing on two cameras so I can be quick and versatile. I shoot with a zoom and a wide angle prime in these situations so I can get as many different photos in one moment. Then later in the day I photographed family photos for both sides of their families.
A selection of photos can be seen below, I took a large variety of candid photos to posed family portraits after each blessing. (If you are a family member the full album of 600 photos can be seen in the client album section of my website. All you will need is the password from the lovely couple.)
