Great to see you here again. This time I will share my experience about photographing asian walima celebration in Edinburgh Marriott hotel. It happens a week or two after the initial wedding, but the actual events are pretty much the same. Everyone is very colourfully dressed and atmosphere is more casual that on actual wedding day. A lot of smiles around and meet and greet hugs. It was my first asian wedding walima experience and I must say that I was a bit worried of not knowing things around. My all worries were gone once I started to photograph, people were so open and happy that you just blend in very quickly and enjoy the event.
Zeeshan and boys were wearing the kilts and ladies were traditionally dressed. It was great to see how wedding guests were reacting on that and happily commented and teased boys 🙂 Kiran was wearing gorgeous blue dress with beautiful headset and jewellery. on my question what kind of photography they would prefer, bit crazy and sexy or more traditional. They started to laugh and said let’s stick to more traditional photography 🙂 So we went for more posed and romantic wedding photography.
Few images from the day and enjoy the slideshow as well.
Thank you for coming along and feel free to leave few words in comments box, those are always appreciated.
