Asian Sikh Wedding | Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, Salangor Club

 

The gallery of 133 pictures from the wedding of Jasveen and Siamak (with whom I had a pleasure to work during their wedding in London at Hyatt Regency Hotel).

Their second wedding organised in the Sikh tradition took place in Kuala Lumpur last year. My adventure with the family of Jasveen and Siamak lasted almost a week.  Starting from the family reunion which was filled with emotions (some family members have not seen each other for a long time), and ending with the traditional wedding at the temple after which the wedding reception was held at Salangor Club. That place is a historical one as in the year 1957 The Federation of Malaya announced independence there.

On the first day when the whole family met, there was one, big spontaneous party which started in the early hours with eating, taking and signing and lasted long after midnight. That day can be described just in three words: eat, sing and laugh.

On the next day the traditional mehndi and dholki/sangeet ceremony took place. That day can be described with four words: eat, sing, laugh and dance.  All of it was mixed with beautiful colours and aromas. On that day women intricately made mandalas. The symbol of harmony between a man and space. The bride was decorated with henna ornaments on hands and feet. The person doing those ornaments does not follow a special pattern but does it spontaneously so the ornaments are never twice the same. Then the selected bracelets were put on the bride’s hand in a special order, nothing is random here.

On the third day there was a traditional wedding. Although singing and dancing lasted long the previous night – the bride and groom started their preparations early in the morning. The preparation of the bride is a completely different story. The make-up, hair, wedding dress, shoes and jewellery are equally important here. Nothing can be ignored. And once again – aromas and colours, laughter and concentration. The ceremony is about to begin.

The ceremony; concentration, laughter, prayers, attention of the others. Then, waiting for the evening reception at the Salangor Club.

The reception at Salangor Club can be described with three words:  eat, dance, and love. There was fantastic cuisine and dancers. All of it filled with tears of happiness. Parents were crying for their daughters, a brother for a sister and a wife for her husband.  

As for me it was a fantastic time spent in Malaysia with the whole family of Jasveen and Siamak. It was magical, filled with aromas, discussions, laughter, singing, dancing and praying. It is something that you will remember for the rest of your life every time you take a picture.

Possibility of taking photographs barefoot in the Malaysian climate – priceless.

Please take a look at some picture from the three days of this unforgettable adventure:
