Happy New Year!
2018 was a very exciting year for us. We shot some of the most amazing weddings, made new friends and travelled the world.
Our last wedding of 2018 was absolutely epic. It was a four day celebration at the Punta Cana’s Hard Rock in Dominican Republic. Here is the breakdown of the events:
We arrived on Wednesday and started with the Mehendi ceremony at the bridal suite.
The next morning was the Haldi ceremony on the beach. This was one of the funnest parts. I don’t think Priyanka and Ushan liked it, but the family definitely enjoyed the process.
Right after the Haldi, the couple rain straight into the ocean for a few photos.
Next was the Sangeet. Or I should say - next was rain. A real tropical rain. At some point I thought Sangeet was not going to happen. But eventually it stopped and everything went as planned. Huge shoutout to DJ Yogi who kept the party going through the rain.
Next day was the traditional wedding ceremony followed by the Sri Lankan wedding ceremony. The Hindu ceremony took place on a see through platform over a pool, while the Sri Lankan ceremony took place on the beach.
The weekend ended with a reception, fireworks, dancing, performances and speeches.
It was an unforgettable weekend filled with lots of fun and dancing and could not thank Priyanka and Ushan enough for flying us to DR and document their wedding.
