Featuring amongst the top Sikh wedding photographers, Amit Video Vision has had the honour to photograph and videograph a number of Sikh weddings. The Sikh marriage ceremony is known as ‘Anand Karaj’. Guru Amar Dass ji introduced the ceremony of ‘Anand Karaj’, which literally translates to “joyful union” or “blissful union”.
Generally, Sikh marriages take place in the morning and are completed by afternoon. After the ceremonies there is a langar. A Sikh wedding event is usually spread over three days, in certain cases everything is completed in a day. Sri Akaal Takht Sahib has made it compulsory that the ‘Anand Karaj’ ceremonies can take place only in a Gurudwara.
Sikh wedding photography involves both candid and portrait photography in almost equal proportions. Before the wedding ceremony is the engagement ceremony, known as “kurmai”. Now, it depends on the families of the bride and the groom to hold “kurmai” on a separate day before the wedding day or on the same day as the ‘Anand Karaj’. The engagement is at the home of the groom or in a Gurudwara. We get to see and experience ardas (prayer), kirtan, langar and exchange of gifts known as shagun. Being the best cinematographers in Delhi we have clicked and videographed shagun ceremonies in almost all Punjabi weddings we were booked for. Well, that is the advantage of being a marriage photographer.
Posing as Sikh wedding photographers we have cherished the smiles and the vibrancy of the “blissful union” of not just two people but two families. Sikh wedding photography is a lot about capturing, pomp and show, vibrant colours, amazing dance performances and great enthusiasm.
Combining the latest and best equipment and skills of creative photography and videography we aim to win the hearts of our clients. Whenever a patron is able to re-live the moments of a wedding and thank us for our work, we feel rewarded and blessed.
