London Sri Murugan Temple Photography

Weddings

Photographed by Nicholas Hill

Natasha & Paras’s Wedding

My name is Nicholas Hill and I was so excited at the opportunity to provide London Sri Murugan Temple Photography for Natasha and Paras. The couple asked me to cover their 2 day wedding. Both stories are available to enjoy.


This was the first time I had been asked to cover a Hindu wedding. I was taken by the wonderful array of colours, and sounds at the temple. It really was the most amazing wedding ceremony I have ever covered.

Getting Ready

Wedding Details

I start my London Sri Murugan Temple Photography with the bridal details. I know how important these pictures are for a couple. The family gold has been meticulously cleaned and passed down through the generations for the bride to wear during the ceremony. The rich red and gold saree looked stunning and I felt privileged taking the bridal preparation pictures.

Bridal Preparation

The Bride

Natasha still lived at the family home in London. I arrived early for the start of their London Sri Murugan Temple Photography. It is nice to be relaxed and not have a rushing bride.


Natasha sister was her one bridesmaid for the temple ceremony. The girls got ready as the professional hair and makeup artist applied the finishing touches. I was invited to photograph the final stages of the wrapping of the saree.

The Ceremony

The London Sri Murugan Temple Photography taken during the ceremony was one of the most special we have ever covered. The colours on display were so bright and vivid.


The ceremony lasted for over an hour and consisted of many different stages. The photography we captured really tells the joyous story of Natasha and Paras as they got married.

The Portraits

There was little opportunity at the temple to produce beautiful portraits of Natasha and Paras. We waited until later in the day when we return to Paras apartment for the crossing of threshold ceremony. This is tradition in which the family welcome the bride into the new marital home.


Paras and Natasha were very comfortable in front of the camera and we were able to get some nice pictures for the couple.
