Learning is never over... Thursday
Edmonton, AB, Canada

Hopefully I'll be getting a full post up really soon about this new wedding we shot a while ago. But for now a quick little note about how the learning process is never over when you are dealing with Indian weddings. 

 

As our recent bride was from South India (Andhra Pradesh) her traditions were totally different from anything we had ever seen.

 

Generally the chura (bridal bracelets) we see are red, plastic, and numerous, traditional especially of the North, Punjabi brides.

 And yet with this recent wedding, the chura were green, glass, and were only a few in number.

It's one of the most wonderful and baffling things about Indian weddings. No matter how much you think you know, and how many times you have seen things done one way, there is always the chance that you will be thrown a curve ball, and see something totally different and totally new.

 

Our biggest tip is just to be open, ready for anything, and shoot EVERYTHING!

 

Cheers, and we'll be back with more soon!

 

Lauren :)
