Shooting Sikh Weddings Part 15 - The Blessing and Bride and Groom Portraits
We Join Tarlochen on a real client three day Sikh wedding, as he shares his in-depth knowledge of the religious and cultural traditions.
With 20 years’ experience and being a Sikh himself, Tarlochen has vast knowledge of shooting Sikh weddings. Lucky for us Tarlochen wants to share this knowledge, allowing anyone to break into the Sikh wedding market.
We continue the third and final day of the Sikh wedding. Once the marriage ceremony is completed it is finished with a prayer called a Ardās. The family and friends come forward to bless the couple with gifts, this is called the Shaggan. After this Tarlochen takes the opportunity to shoot some quick portraits of the Bride & Groom whilst everyone moves on to the reception venue.
