Mandeep & Sameet | The Sikh Marriage: Windsor wedding videography
May 28th, 2011
Mandeep and Sameet – A Wedding Highlight Reel
The marriage of Mandeep and Sameet was an event unlike anything we had experienced before. The couple was wed in a beautiful, traditional Sikh marriage ceremony. The festivities lasted all weekend, featuring traditions from both the Indian culture and the Sikh faith. It was a beautiful and grand celebration, and an honour to be a part of!
The weekend began at The Windsor Inn On The River Bed and Breakfast, where the Mehndi celebration was held. We filmed as Mandeep and the women had intricate henna designs applied. As you watch the video, you’ll see many of the unique and beautiful traditions involved in the celebration. There’s great emphasis on the exchange of gifts, the application of jewellery and music and dancing. We dined and danced along with the guests, but didn’t stay out too late… as we had a big day ahead of us.
The preparations for the wedding day began early in the morning. Our team headed out to Caesar’s Windsor Casino where the bride and groom were getting ready. Mandeep had her hair and make-up done, and was dressed in a beautiful, traditional outfit. Meanwhile, Sameet was in his suite, grooming his beard, applying his turban and also getting dressed.
The bride and groom went with their respective families to the Temple, where they met outside for the Milni ceremony. Sameet rode in on a white horse and entered the Temple. Mandeep and Sameet were then wed in the traditional Sikh ceremony known as Anand Karaj.
The photographers for the wedding were Mackenzie Froats of Windsor and Banga Photography from Toronto. We followed along with them to Willistead Manor for a creative photo shoot. Afterward, it was off to the Fogular Furlan Club for the reception.
The reception was full of entertainment, featuring dance performances by both a Punjabi folk dance team and a professional hip-hop dance group. Dholi drummers kept a packed dance floor moving throughout the night.
Sameet and Mandeep, we’d like to thank you for choosing us to capture your big day. It was such a beautiful experience, sharing your wedding celebration with you and your families. It was an amazing opportunity, being immersed in the beautiful culture and tradition. We hope that you love your video!
