This is a beautiful wedding with Sri Lankan touches I photographed last autumn in West Sussex. Abarna and Jeban got married at St Mary de Haura Church in Shoreham-by-Sea and had their wedding reception at a Hilton Hotel near Arundel. Abarna and Jeban are both medical doctors – it just happened so that this was the second wedding for me to photograph within a month where both the bride and the groom are doctors. Abarna was getting ready for her big day at her parents’ house in Shoreham.
The confetti that had been hand cut/punched… all of it!
In the meantime, the groom is eagerly waiting for his bride at the church!
One of the Sri Lankan wedding traditions is that the groom’s family give the bride a Thali necklace.
Avisford Park Hotel Hilton, Arundel – ready for the wedding party to arrive!
Another piece of Sri Lanka in West Sussex… the adorable elephants as wedding cake toppers. So cute!
Before entering the room, we took some pictures of the guests…
…and the beautiful happy couple!
The bride’s mother helped her put on a Sari for the evening celebrations.
