Amar and Ruby’s Wedding

Posted on May 25, 2009

This was one fun wedding to shoot. Amar & Ruby were a dream couple for me on their wedding day. I guess the fact that Amar was a small-town, down-to-earth type of guy, and Ruby’s a Yoga instructor were good reasons why they were both so extremely calm and happy during their wedding.

Amar and his family drove to Victoria, from Nanaimo, in the early hours of the morning of the wedding. They were greeted at the Gurdwara (Sikh Temple) by Ruby’s family and soon after the wedding ceremony took place. Being in Victoria, Amar and Ruby couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take a horse and carriage ride in downtown Victoria around the Parliament building. We had a great time with the bridal party and afterwards, I ended up driving the bride and groom to the Doli in my little car! It was a very emotional Doli, where Ruby’s family said their farewells to their daughter. From the Doli, there was the 1.5hr drive back to Nanaimo for the Paani Vaarna, where Amar’s family welcomes the newly wedded couple back into the groom’s home. After that, it was party time as the family rocked it out for the rest of the night in their beautiful home.

Thank you Amar & Ruby for such an amazing day. It was truly calming just to be around both of you, and I feel lucky to have been your photographer. I can’t wait to see you both again, soon!

    Your pictures are beautiful man. I don’t know how you do it but there’s something unique there as if time is actually captured in the photograph. I know that’s the essence of photography, but I find few actually give me that feeling. Great job Pardeep.

    Simply stunning. The most beautiful bride I have seen! It was inspiring to see your work Pardeep. Was this a bi-racial couple? Was the bride Indian? I was inspired being Caucasian myself and engaged to someone of East Indian Etnicity. Excellent job. Absolutely gorgeous.

    Thanks Tracey. I really appreciate your kind words. These two are both East Indian actually, she just comes from a family with “lighter skin”, haha. They were a joy to photograph, no doubt.
