Swedish Wedding Photography: Last Saturday and Sunday I was in Central London to photograph the two day wedding celebrations of Mili and John. Saturday’s ceremony was at the Swedish Church in Harcourt Street, London followed on Sunday at the SHREE RAM MANDIR Hindu Temple in Southall.
This was the first Swedish wedding I have photographed and it was interesting seeing the cultural differences, although in the part very similar to the UK. The first and obvious difference is that Mili and John both walked down the aisle together. It was a lovely moment seeing them walking down the aisle together smiling at their family and friends. The Swedish church that Mili and John chose to get married is in Harcourt Street Central London. It really is a beautiful church inside with the words ‘Gud ar Karlek’ inscribed above the alter, this translates to ‘God is Love’
Sunday’s Hindu Celebrations took place at SHREE RAM MANDIR Hindu Temple in Southall. The Hindu ceremony takes about 2 hours to complete, with guests coming and going makes it feel like a very relaxed affair. I recently wrote an interesting blog on the Hindu Wedding Ceremony.
Thank you to both Mili and John who went out of their way to make me feel welcome. Here are some of my favourite photos from the day. I hope you like them and please feel free to comment.
I do like to post a lot of images on my blog as it gives a good feeling of the days events, rather than just posting one or two.
