Poundon House Hindu Ceremony – Nehal and Rob

Poundon House Hindu Ceremony

Nehal and Rob’s Poundon House Hindu Ceremony was another one of the highlights of my year, with so much colour and so much going on to photograph. Poundon is one of my favourite venues and this was my fourth wedding there this year.

I was accompanied for the day by my good friend and very talented photographer Gemma Chase. With so many guests and their love of many impromptu group photos, a second photographer is usually a must have add on for a Hindu wedding. It also meant that while I took Nehal and Rob away for their couple portraits and during the formal group photos, Gemma was able to continue with candid photos to make sure nothing was missed.

Just prior to the ceremony Rob made his ‘official’ arrival at the venue by tuk tuk accompanied by dhol drummers and the guests. It was certainly a spectacular entrance and the noise from the drums made sure it couldn’t go unnoticed. It was then on to the ceremony itself in a magnificent mandap on Poundon’s rear terrace.

The tuk tuk was used again following the Hindu ceremony for Nehal and Rob’s official departure. This gave an opportunity for the traditional blackmailing of the groom as Nehal’s sisters blocked it’s progress. Eventually they were allowed to depart but not until after some hard negotiations and a cash payment.

Following the speeches, the evening entertainment began with a demonstration from a pair of Bollywood dancers. The guests were then invited onto the dance floor for a Bollywood dancing workshop. Almost every guest took part and it certainly got them all in the mood to dance the night away!
