Kathmandu Wedding Photography

Welcome to the Kathmandu Wedding Photography of {S} and {A}.

What can I say? Kathmandu! It was beautiful to be back again. It’s the city of my birth. I spent my formative years in Kathmandu.

I made three trips to Nepal in 2019, and this was my second trip. The first trip back to Kathmandu, after a nearly 8-year absence, reminded me how much I have forgotten about Kathmandu and Kathmandu life.

I was very emotional when I had to return to the UK.

So, I was extremely pleased when {A} approached me to be his wedding photographer in his marriage to his beautiful bride {S}. It didn’t take very long for us to agree that I would be their Kathmandu Wedding Photographer.

You can view their post-engagement wedding shoot here.

Yak Party Palace Wedding Photography

It’s traditional in Newari weddings for the groom to send gifts to the bride and her family a few days before the wedding, and it’s the actual engagement, commonly called as the “Supari Diney” (which means ‘to give’) ceremony.

The “Supari Diney” ceremony was held upstairs at the Yak Party Palace. It’s not a day I will forget as there was an Earthquake tremor during the Supari Diney ceremony.

Classic Venue Wedding Photography

On the wedding day, the groom and his entourage of friends and family set off to the wedding ceremony with a musical band. However, the groom’s mother and her closest female family and friends do not attend the wedding.

The musical band plays while the groom and his entourage make their way to the wedding ceremony. This procession is called the Janti.

The Janti always a vibrant and loud experience.

The bride’s family, without the bride, greet the groom and his entourage, with blessings. Once the preliminary greetings are over, the bride, with her mother and close relatives, make their entrance.

Once the wedding ceremony is over the bride and groom, make their way back to the groom’s home to meet the groom’s family.

Heritage Gardens Wedding Photography

A few days later we were at the Heritage Garden for the reception party of the groom. During this time, the bride and her family lay out the gifts from the groom received during the Supari Diney.

Then members of the bride’s family bless the bride or receive blessings (if they are younger).

Once done, then it was capturing group photos of the guests and some dancing at the end.
