INDIAN WEDDING - COMO LAKE, ITALY - INDER + TAJ
It's really hard to describe the feelings and the emotions that this great sikh wedding make us to discover.
Inder and Taj, a wonderful couple, she's from Canada, he's from London.
When we received the first e-mail from Alice (Italian Style Weddings) and she asked about our availability for a Sikh wedding on the Como Lake we couldn't be more excited.
We have already shooted an indian wedding but this has been totally different. Last one was more quite and intimate, this full of dances and party people.
Day 1: Inside the Serre (greenhouse) in Villa del Grumello in Como, a traditional Sangeet (sikh party) with families and friends.
We discovered a lot of rituals they usually have before the wedding, as women putting veils above bride and groom's heads while families give them food and bracelets to the bride. To end with a lot of dances, but these are real dances, traditional indian music with guests dancing and having fun until late night.
Day 2: at Villa Pizzo , a great italian Villa in Cernobbio (COMO) was a perfect backdrop for this wonderful couple.
At the very early morning the weather was very bad, not a typical temperature for early June. The ceremony was palnned at the Darsena, a breathtaking terrace on the lake, that you can reach after 10 minutes walking from the villa. Unfortunately because the weather the ceremony was set near the villa. But we had the chance to see the Darsena later in the day, in the afternoon with Taj and Inder, we spent a bit of time there taking some couple portraits while they were having a try for the first dance, alone, enjoying the moment.
