We’re here today with one of a two part series with Shiraine and Raymond. It seems that we at Impressions by Annuj tend to attract a lot of mixed couples towards us. Raymond is from Guyana and is Hindu while Shiraine is from Sri Lanka and is from a Buddhist descent. We were very excited when they approached us for both their Hindu and Buddhist weddings along with their reception.
Their Hindu wedding was on a Friday evening and was filled with family, friends, and cheer. As Shiraine was getting herself beautified with her bridesmaids, I (Tanya) was at Raymond’s house. As per usual “brown standard time”, things were off to a bit of a delayed start but Raymond was nothing short of the perfect host. Whether it was making sure I was okay, to entertaining his boys or saying “hi” to every individual who entered the property, it seemed as though his only prerogative on his wedding day was to make sure that everyone was welcomed and had a good time.
It is no hidden secret that Shiraine is a beauty. Donned in a beautiful red lehengha, she stole the show. From the welcoming Bharat with the tussa to walking around the fire, they had a beautiful wedding day.

We’re here today with Mituna and Nirojan’s wedding. Their wedding was filled with happiness, laughter and cheer – and pretty much went off without a hitch! A fantastic job was done by Shaminy at GlamBeauty for Mituna’s make up and hair. Shaminy was also there to change Mituna’s look for the second half of the wedding – the civil ceremony. Mituna was decked out in a beautiful and bright yellow saree with red and black embellishments. A lovely day with a great couple! Hope you enjoy these photos.
This time we have something different for you guys. A shoot we recently did with Arthy from Etched In Time Artistry for the Jodi Bridal Magazine, which is run by Abi Jegan of Geethams Banquet Services. With help from Abi we secured a location at the beautiful Scarborough Convention Centre in Scarborough.
Arthy wanted to shoot 4 different models for her ad so we started looking and found 4 gorgeous models, Rubi Satha, Amrit B. Ahluwalia, Shobna Sharma and Prasani J. (in order of appearance in the photos below). The stunning outfits and jewellry were all provided by Aarathie’s Super Centre. All four were amazing to work with and the photos in turn turned out beautiful while Arthy’s makeup and styling was, like always, perfect.
So a few months ago we were approached by Payal from Brides by Payal, a makeup and mehndi artist to work together on photos for her upcoming magazine for the Dreams Wedding Show. If you head over to her facebook page you’ll see that she has great work and is by far one of the best mehndi artists we’ve ever met.
She approached us about shooting two models so we started looking right away. Eventually we decided to go with Abissheka Lloydson for the makeup and Sukhmeen Ghotra for the mehndi. They both proved to be wonderful models and were amazing to work with.
We also decided that instead of a regular black or white background we should make a set, so off to Homesense we went! Homesense always has a lot of great stuff and we found a tufted leather chair, an antique looking side table, a table lamp as well as a rustic looking hanging candle holder. Oh and not to mention a few sarees that we borrowed from our mothers.
We got to the location a little early set everything up and by the time we were ready so was our first model Abissheka. She was amazing and she pulled off the bridal look perfectly, even though she’s only 16! Sona was up next and she also did great and the mehndi that Payal did on her back was simply stunning.
But we were a little biased towards our favourite model: our ever-amazing, MOLLY!
In January, we shot for the Jodi Bridal Show magazine. This gave us the opportunity to work with the amazing Arthy from Etched in Time Artistry as well as some extremely talented models. Hope you enjoy a backstage pass of our day 🙂 !
