Swaneset & Dhaliwal Banquet Hall Wedding // Vancouver BC
Photos by Gwen & Christina
We had a blast being a part of this absolutely gorgeous celebration in Vancouver. Ronita & Alan met in university. She was the serious student and he was the joker, asking for her notes. They hosted a Hindu wedding ceremony at the Dhaliwal Banquet Hall in Surrey and since the groom is the star of the Baarat, Alan led the processional of his family and friends into the hall while channeling their best Bollywood moves. The next day everyone got back together for the reception and speeches at the famous Swaneset Bay Resort & Country Club. We had the most spectacular sunset lighting for portraits on the main lawns, then the entire wedding party started the reception with a show to end all shows. Rather than a first dance, Ronita and Alan did a lip-synching competition that brought the house down with laughter. It was a huge treat to be a part of this awesome wedding. Ronita and Alan, a huge congratulations!
Curious how we achieve our creative portraits?
Gwen and I are huge photography geeks. We love to experiment and create artwork our couples will love to hang on their walls. And while we do polish our wedding portraits in Lightroom, we like to create the image inside the camera using reflections, sparkly objects, double exposures, and other neat photography hacks, instead of fancy Photoshop trickery. More about how we work and our approach can be found on the new Get Crafty Photographers website. Stay tuned for our YouTube channel in the new year!
