Weddings are full of all kinds of emotion from everyone attending. The bride and groom are obviously going through a lot since it is one of the biggest days of their lives, but equally the family, friends and other attendees – in the case of Indian weddings, also the neighbours, cousin’s neighbours, etc. to make the multitude of guests that usually attend the wedding.
I have always found it fascinating that the emotions that are expressed by different people during the ceremonies vary so dramatically. Does it qualify truly as an emotional roller coaster jam packed into some days of ceremonies? Sometimes the emotions captured through the lens are truly magical. They have so much expression and so many stories to tell. Of course the ones in the pictures might remember the instance vividly, but also for someone from the outside seeing the pictures, they convey so much.
I love these pictures from Nik Thakar capturing so much emotion from the bride, groom and the guests. The emotions range from absolute joy from the groom’s party in the first picture, to the brides in the pictures who have eyes full of hope, fear and anticipation, to the absolute joy in the faces of the family members around the couple.
The last picture is one of my favourites because if captures an essential moment in the life of the couple. I often wonder what goes through the couple’s minds during the entire ceremony – are they thinking of the times they spent together, how they met, how they got to that moment, of their family and friends around, about the future arrangements, about the next phase of their lives? or are they simply going through the motions and getting it done? Brides certainly with the weight of their lehengas cannot wait for the ceremony to finish I am sure, if for nothing else, but to get into something more comfortable! 🙂
Anyone have thoughts to share around this – I’d love to hear!
Indian wedding photography that was pretty much a point and shoot game with every couple in the same 10 cliché poses and horrendous pictures of the wedding party stuffing their faces with food has mercifully undergone a much needed makeover. Gone are the days when every SLR totting cousin or friend who called himself a ‘pro’ photographer was enlisted to take pictures at the wedding. Now couples consult and hire proper professionals who understand their style and expectations from the pictures of the momentous day.
