Guru Nanak Sikh Academy Wedding Photography
Guru Nanak Sikh Academy Wedding Photography; London Sikh Wedding Photographer. I met Jagz on a wet evening at an excellent coffee establishment near to Oxford Circus to discuss her wedding for the following year.
I have to say I have been fortunate as all of my couples have been amazing. Jagz was no exception; she was bubbly and bright and easy to chat to about her wedding plans.
The time flew by as we discussed her Sangeet (as defined on Google as “a celebration held before a Hindu wedding ceremony for the bride-to-be and her female friends and relatives.”), followed by her wedding at the Guru Nanak Sikh Academy the following day.
Jagz held her Sangeet at a venue near to her home the day before her wedding. It was full of fun and cheer, and a taster of the events to come the following day.

The Sangeet formally starts with family members paying respects to the bride’s immediate family, and end with a big lavish dance, as music is a massive part of the night.
I got to sleep around 1 a.m. after downloading all the cards and recharging batteries again. I was up and ready to go at 5.30 a.m.
We were arriving at Jagz’s home at 6.15 a.m. The day seemed to start slowly as members of the family turned up throughout the morning.
However, Jagz looked terrific as she left her family home and made her way to the Guru Nanak Sikh College for her wedding.
Jagz and her bridal party arrived, and made their way to a room and waited for Sunny and his family.

The excitement from the bridal party was all too evident, and especially when Sunny arrived, accompanied a large baraat (a procession of family and friends, with its band).
Then designated family members of the bride and groom introduced themselves to each other during the Milni ceremony and the exchange of good wishes.
As the wedding guests entered the Gurdwara, the Ragis were singing the hymns from Sri Guru Granth Sahib.
The radiant bride, Jagz, made her appearance, so marking the start of the religious ceremony. Once the service was over, family and friends congratulated Jagz and Sunny on their union.
Jagz was then taken to her home and awaited the arrival of Sunny to collect her.
Sunny had to barter hard to be allowed into the house not only to see Jagz but also to be introduced to Jagz’s family.
Jagz’s family shed tears as she finally left her family home to start a new life with Sunny.
Thank you Jagz and Sunny for allowing me to share your wedding day. I wish you the best for the future.
