In the Indian culture, the day before the “wedding” is for the Chura, the Mehndi, and the Sangeet. So when Phil and Priyanka were planning their wedding, they knew the cultural elements would be really important to their event. So on Friday, the day before the “traditional” wedding ceremony, the family gathered at Little Oatlands for the Chura, Mehndi party, and the Sangeet later that evening.
I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know about these traditions and photographing it all was such fun! The family was wonderful to work with, and even the day of rain didn’t hold back their enthusiasm or their ability to make the event amazing for Phil and Priyanka.
Here is a sneak peek of the images they will see from the day – I hope you enjoy it and if so – please leave a comment so I know you were here!
