It was a huge honour to be chosen by Bhavin and Shivani to document their wedding weekend in London. Day one of the wedding was on a chilly but clear day at the Hilton Syon Park. Whilst Shivani was getting ready into traditional dress in her suite Bhavin arrived by car (not the traditional horseback!) for the groom's procession (Baraat) consisting of his family and friends singing and dancing led by a droll (large bass drum) player. The baraat was met by the bride's family at the entrance for the welcoming ritual with the bride's parents.
After the marriage ceremony the evening was finished off with a traditional 'fishing the ring' wedding game - apparently to determine who will rule the roost at home! I think they came out even on this occasion :-)
