When I first met with Nirav and Preet to discuss my wedding videography services, I had yet to officially film a full East Indian wedding. Preet contacted me after seeing a film I had put together for a traditional Chinese wedding, with whom they were friends with the couple. More than logistics, we discussed the feeling/emotion and style of film that they wanted; a film that represented who they were and that captured the emotional elements of their events. Soft-spoken yet ambitious and driven, a love quiet yet strong with a significant emphasis on familial bonds were at the centre of this film. As is mentioned at the beginning of the film, Nirav and Preet’s love brought together two beautifully colourful and elegant cultural and spiritual traditions for an amazing week that produced nothing short of an abundance of celebratory and genuinely intimate moments.
There were a number of amazing vendors that were involved in helping make this week happen including Emma and her team at Events By Emma, who surprised the couple by showering them with gold confetti during their first dance! It was amazing to see how quickly they were able to transform the venue at the RBC Convention Centre not once, not twice, but three times for the Sikh and Hindu ceremonies as well as the magnificent Reception setup.
I also have to give a shout out to Curtis Moore of Moore Photography. He’s a genuinely good guy with an incredible photographic eye and was a real pleasure to work alongside with throughout the week. I’ve included a link to his photos below in the vendor list you should definitely check out!
We also put together a NEXT-DAY EDIT for Nirav and Preet that played at their reception and included all events up to that evening. The film helped generate a feature article in It’s Love Magazine that you can check out HERE. The story of Nirav’s proposal to Preet is so sweet!
