Ellora & Esben: Day 4, Wedding!

Wow, what an exciting four days! We would have never thought we’d be photographing and experiencing a four day wedding. Ever. And now that we have…we are soooo glad we did! The happy family and friends, the singing, colours, the aaaaah-mazing food, it was all an unforgettable time for everyone. In addition to all that Ellora is Bengali and Esben is Danish, so you can only imagine the fun everyone had in this cultural mix of people. A HUGE thank you goes out to Ellora, Esben and their family and friends for welcoming us into their lives for these four days!

If you missed the first three days of celebrations here are the links to the other posts: Day1 Day2 Day3

Enough rambling and on to the photos! These are some of the best frames we’ve ever captured…

This might need an explanation…but as a Danish tradition when the man is wed, his socks and tie are cut! And unfortunately for Esben, a Bengali tradition is for the kids to steal his shoes too…only for him to have to pay for them. Poor thing, shoeless, sockless and tieless!

We were all floored when these two came out dressed the part, and danced a whole Bollywood choreographed routine! To a song called “Dhoom Tana” from the popular Bollywood movie “Om Shanti Om“. We almost forgot to take photos. Yep, they were THAT good.
