As a guest at a Pakistani wedding in Birmingham, England, I managed to take some photos that, hopefully, tell a story. There's 20 medium-sized colourful photos involving dancing in the garden, a horse and a Bentley or two (not all together!) as well as another link to the full set. They were taken in June 2009 and I've gained a lot more experience since then. I used a Canon 450D and Sigma 18-125mm DC OS HSM.


1. An anxious-looking groom

Image

2. The "family" turban, which belonged to the groom's Grandfather, is about to be placed on the groom's head

Image

3. Streamers!

Image

4. Groom's brother and father dancing

Image

5. Family and guests dance around the groom

Image

6. Groom and uncle dancing

Image

7. Drummer in Punjabi folk dress

Image

8. The groom's horse awaits his arrival in the hotel car park

Image

9. The groom arrives at the wedding venue

Image

10. Musicians

Image

11. Groom and his immediate family

Image

12. Father dancing

Image

13. The families meet outside the wedding venue

Image

14. Entering the room

Image

15. The bride's entrance

Image

16. Bride and groom

Image

17. A Rose on the wedding car (Bentley)

Image

18. Cousin's having a laugh

Image

19. An uncle tries on the family turban

Image

20. My brother-in-law and his family at the Groom's reception, the next evening

Image

Most pictures (especially indoors) are too warm. And the direct on camera flash doesn't rly do great things either

i like the outdoor ones though (but they're slightly overexposed I think)

suggestions: try geling the flash with a CTO gel and switch to tungsten WB if you're indoors. And if possible, bounce the flash off a white surface at the side.

i do agree that some indoor photos and even outdoors are too warm.... i guess its just the AWB that isnt working well enough.... and the lack of custom Kelvin on a 450D.... but a tungsten setting would work =D

love photo number 4, expression is really alive!

drop by and check out some of my wedding/pre-wedding photos... cheers

Thanks for the feedback. These photos were processed using the supplied Canon software (DPP). I did a tone curve adjustment, increased brightness and cropped the images. I think the "warmness" might have been caused by either the white balance setting outdoors (cloudy) or too high a saturation setting in-camera (+1).

Regards,
Asif

I noticed most "overview" photo's arent really compelling. Remember that closer is often better (like the detail shot of the car, and the shot of the bride and groom) :)
