Arti & Vipin’s Hindu Wedding & Reception Party at Epsom Downs Race Course

Arti and Vipin’s special day was my 1st 2012 Hindu wedding & Reception party all in one day, plus a Civil inbetween! There was a beautiful sunrise at 7am when I arrived at Epsom Race Course, so I made Naresh from Lax Videography pull over several times while I ran out and caught the perfect shot of the sun rising! I had an absolute blast on the day, everyone was in good spirits and it was an honor to capture Arti and Vipin’s wedding memories. The Hindu wedding was beautifully conducted, Vipin’s sister’s laughed a lot (probably more-so at me and my Homer Simpson socks! ).

Then followed by the Civil ceremony and after a short break we pretty much straight into the reception party which featured a Dhol-bot! (think of a Robot playing the Dhol) and all the guests partied hard! For me, it was the 1st time a groom has picked me up and spun me around on the dance floor, I held onto my camera with my life at the moment! 17 hours later, I reflected on what a fantastic wedding I had just captured and thought to myself, I love what I do!

Arti & Vipin, I wish you ALL the very best for the future, you guys are great together. A big thank you to the Raninga and Nayyar families for making me feel very welcome during the 2 wedding events.

Below are a few of the moments captured, enjoy 🙂
