Colin & Amutha – Hindu Wedding Ceremony

Hey folks!

Today we’re here with the Hindu wedding of Colin and Amutha! You may remember them from their Alice in Wonderland themed shoot!

Their wedding took place at Mirage Banquet Hall. A beautiful traditional ceremony, but Amutha made sure to fuse details of both cultures in the nuptials. From Chinese silk fabrics blended into the mandap decor to the bridesmaids saree blouses designed with Chinese collars to the bridesmaids entering with Chinese umbrellas, there were touches of both Colin and Amutha in the festive celebratory air.

Here are a few of our faves.

Make sure to come back for their Happily Ever After reception! If you enjoyed these photos make sure to check back to our Facebook Fan Page for more! “LIKE” our page to stay updated with our work!

Harsee & Davinder – Shagun Ceremony

Hey guys!

We’re here with Harsee and Davinder’s Shagun ceremony. On a rainy Saturday in September, we headed down to Pearl Banquet Hall for their engagement ceremony. With blessings, love, and applause surrounding them, Davinder entered the hall in his very own motorcycle and Harsee followed adorably with a scooter and some balloons. In a well fitted neon green anarkali, Harsee proves that she’s confident and beautiful enough to pull off a colour that most simply can’t. A fun filled night with great food, dancing, and even a celebrity speech? (Keep your eye out for famed Punjabi film celeb, Harbhajan Mann – uncle of our beautiful Harsee!)

Stunning is a word too often thrown around these days but Harsee and Davinder are truly a couple that make you stop in your tracks and stare in awe. Not only are they beautiful on the outside, but such humble, genuine people that we were so happy to be with on a special occasion.

Enjoy!

Looking forward to their wedding next fall!

Anu & Goby – Reception – London, England

Hey guys,

We’re back today with Anu and Goby for their reception. This was held at a beautiful estate in Hertfordshire called De Vere Hunton Park.

Anu wore a beautiful net saree and a gorgeous designer kundan set. We took some great couple photos around the estate during cocktail hour as the guests were entertained by a magician and were served scrumptious appetizers made by Freshco. The reception was filled with speeches – some that made us laugh (Pratik), some that made us cry (Jenni – even reducing the groom himself to tears), and some that made us awwwwww (Goby!).

Speaking of Goby’s speech – I don’t think we’ve ever received a more ringing endorsement in a speech. Most clients tend to say thank you to us during their final speech at their reception and we are so grateful for the fact that they are so appreciative of our work. Goby took it yet another step further. After all was said and done in his speech, he left the very last thank you for us! It was something like this “And I have to thank Annuj & Tanya. They came here from Canada as our photographers, but they are not only our photographers here, they are our guest, our family. They have been amazing to us this whole time and I am so glad we went with them.”

AND if that wasn’t enough, at the very end of the night, Goby wanted to get a shot of himself and all of his mates with some very fine cigars. As we are setting up for the shot, Goby walks out of the shot, faces the crowd of his friends and says a little something: “LISTEN! ALL OF YOU SHUT UP! LET ME TELL YOU RIGHT NOW… IF YOU DON’T GET ANNUJ & TANYA TO COME TO PHOTOGRAPH YOUR WEDDING, YOUR MARRIAGE WILL BE CURSED FOR LIFE AND I WILL NOT BE COMING TO THE WEDDING!” – a very sweet and unbelievably hilarious vote of confidence!

Hope you enjoy these shots!

Anu & Goby – Hindu Wedding – London, England

Hey all,

Over this past summer, we went to England to shoot a wedding.  This bride, Anu, is a cousin to one of our other brides and came down to Toronto last November to attend Renetha & Niroshan’s wedding. While there, she claims to have fallen in love with the way we worked with them and the moments we captured. She said she HAD to have us! Ummmm a gorgeous bride in beautiful London? We would be FOOLS to pass.

Her traditional Sri Lankan Hindu wedding was beautiful. Adorned in a beautiful white and gold saree, she came down the aisle as a happy bride. After the ceremony, we went to the stunning Oshwal temple neighbouring the banquet hall. Though our groom, Goby, was a bit tired from the day’s events, our Anu was good to go. And go we did. Enjoy.

Sandeep & Navneet – Brampton Engagement Shoot

Hey folks!

We’re here today with a very personalized shoot. Navneet and Sandeep met at their school bus stop back when they were 12. They lived on the same street, where they still live today! So wanting to show off their history – we went to their neighbourhood to capture their story, which goes a little something like this…

Once upon a time, there lived a boy named Sandeep.  Sandeep had just moved to the beautiful land of B-town. He was starting at a new school and that morning, he got dressed and headed over to the school bus stop. On his way there, he saw the most beautiful maiden in the land, Navneet, waiting at the stop. He knew that he had to talk to her, but didn’t know how to start a conversation. All of the excuses raced through his mind but he kept it simple. After a few moments of silence at the stop, he spoke. “Is that our bus?”, pointing at the bus as he inquired. A quick smile and nod from Navneet meant that he knew he got her. And got her he did. They fell in love and lived happily ever after!

Of course with a story like that we had to head over and shoot at their neighbourhood. After a few shots at their street sign we headed over to their local park for some fun. They brought water guns, bubbles and all of their best friends – they are surrounded by awesome people! Sandeep was always up for some danger; from climbing to scaling to jumping off of the swing, he was good to go! Check our Instagram feed to get some awesome behind the scenes footage of this shoot! @impressionsbyannuj

Navneet got a Vespa for the shoot and we did some high fashion shots by the water. We ended off the night with a romantic McDonalds dinner on the shore.

Looking forward to their second, themed engagement shoot coming up in the new year!

 

Now not only are they a great looking pair – but they are talented too!  Sandeep is one of two faces behind Everlasting Decor who provide couples with beautiful custom art for their events!  A few samples below but make sure to head over to their blog to see more of their work if you want something a little different for your special day!

Cretsen & Ingrid – Toronto Catholic Wedding

Hey guys,

Today we come to you with a very thought filled wedding with Cretsen and Ingrid. Their wedding was filled with dozens of completely personal touches – something we love to see. In our longest post to date – we lay out a few below.

Starting at the groom’s house, I (Tanya) arrived, prepared to shoot and asked Cretsen for some items so I can take some detail shots. He hands me his cuffs, a watch, Ingrid’s ring box, and another similarly shaped box wrapped in a Walmart and sealed shut with some scotch tape. Puzzled, in inspected the box and read the writing on the tape: “For Crispin’s Eyes Only. Not Cet’s.” (with Crispin being one of the best men amd Cet being Ingrid’s endearing pet name for Cretsen). I asked Cretsen what the dealio and he shared that Ingriddid not trust him to not read the inscription before the wedding and so she sealed it up in the last second before handing it over and he promised her that he would give the box as-is to Tanya when she came in the morning to shoot. Haha! He had a great set of groomsmen which helped for some happy moments in the morning. Some blessings from the fam and we were on our way to the church!

Over at the bride’s house, Annuj shares with me that Ingrid’s house was very calm. Ingrid, a high school teacher, was always very prepared. Throughout the wedding process she was always quick to respond and always on top of her share of the load. Her studiousness shined on the wedding day. Not liking the curtains in the room she was going to get dressed, she swapped them with her living room curtains in advance, thinking they would be nicer for the photos. And she was right! They permitted great light to come through which allowed Annuj to capture the soft photos you see below. She even had a backdrop beautifully arranged on the main floor for the blessings photos. Another cute fact: I’m sure you’ve heard of “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue”, but did you know there’s a last line that is usually left out when reciting the expression? “And a six pence in her shoe” almost always never makes the cut! But not for Ingrid – this girl does her research and gets it right. She did not forget to glue a six pence to the bottom of her shoe – thus assuring that she was officially a bride! 🙂

Back to thoughtful details everywhere we looked. Ingrid’s mother sadly passed away five years ago – but Ingrid made it a point to pay tribute in many ways to the mother she loved so dear that she truly was there with her on the big day. From wearing her mom’s wedding saree to her bridal shower, to prayer petitions at the mass, to a photo locket of her beautiful mom on her bouquet, to even including the Chunthy flower (the flower that her mom, Cynthia, was named for) in her bouquet, Ingrid showed true honour to her beloved mother (leaving me in tears at many different points of the day). It was such a beautiful way to remember a loved one.

They had a lovely ceremony in the beautiful St. Patrick’s Catholic church in Markham. This church has been listed as one of the 25 most beautiful churches in Canada to get married in. It is infamously renowned for its stained glass ceiling runner.

After the ceremony we headed over to Edwards Gardens for their bridal photo shoot. Yet another personal detail, this is where Cretsen proposed to Ingrid! We had an awesome shoot with their bridal party! At one point, there was an elderly couple sitting so adorably on a bench, just holding hands and talking. We asked them to take a photo and it is definitely one of our faves – demonstrating young love and old. Ingrid and Cretsen, when you guys become an old married couple, we hope that you will be like the one we met that day and head over to Edwards Gardens for walks while reminiscing about both your proposal and your wedding day!

We got to the reception venue and we saw their AWESOME bonbonnieres! You should know that our groom, Cretsen, is a fabulous hot sauce chef! They wanted to make sure that their wedding favours (along with everything else at the wedding, clearly) were a labour of love so they decided to have a homemade hot sauce bottle for each and every one of their guests. A few months back, Ingrid and Cretsen came over to our place to try and design the labels for the bottle. With Ingrid’s initial ideas, Annuj’s talent and attention to detail, my neverending criticisms, and Crestsen’s lovely dimples for inspiration, we ended up with a label we all loved! Annuj and I were so excited to see the end result and we loved it! And another bonus – the hot sauce is amazing too! Ingrid and Cretsen spent three full days making it, found bottles, printed the labels, AND figured out how to get them shelf ready so it didn’t spoil! Pineapple Habanero – it’s spicy with a tangy flavour. Cretsen, if you get famous for your hot sauce, don’t forget about us little guys!

Cretsen hails from a very musical family. His brothers all play instruments, his uncle orchestrated the choir at their wedding (consisting of more musical relatives and friends), and his mother is a piano teacher. In fact, his mother was INGRID’s piano teacher growing up. Keeping this in mind, thoughtful Ingrid made sure that we snapped a photo of her and her new mother-in-law at the piano. 🙂

Though I’m sure that I’m missing a good hundred more, the last thoughtful detail I’m going to mention is the daddy daughter song. Apparently when Ingridwas a little girl, her father would sing to her at night for her to fall asleep. And at her request/demand, it was the same song, every night, sung by her father, or she just wouldn’t go to sleep. The song played around them as he spun her on the dance floor that night and he sung to his baby girl, once again.

Their reception included loot bags for the kiddies, fireworks (that Ingrid almost caught herself on fire when she spun over them!), speeches, and lots of dancing! I don’t think I’ve written a longer blog post before about a wedding but there were just too many details to talk about. A wonderful and touching affair! We hope you enjoy these images!
