Asian wedding photography | Dilshan & Shashi | Wedding photographer Coventry
Dilshan & Shashi’s small traditional Buddhist wedding was in Coventry, Midlands UK. The Buddhist ceremony was at The Forest Hermitage a Buddhist monastery in the UK.
This Buddhist wedding was a small and private affair including only the closest friends and relatives of both families. The ceremony though lasting about half an hour, during which time ordained monks chanted from Buddhist sacred texts. The guests and wedding couple listen and observe, but did not participate. After the blessing, I did the couples portraits and group pictures in the gardens of the monastery before driving to the reception venue in Coventry.
Similarly, at the reception, the bride and groom performed the poruwa ceremony. Where the Bride and grooms families would enter the hall separately with performances by Kandyan dancers and drummers.
