Sis’ Wedding Preparations

2 Oct


It’s the first of October today. It’s the start of a new month in 2010. For my family and me, it’s the official start of the preparations for my sisters wedding, which is on the 23rd of this month.

As I haven’t written a blog lately, I thought it would be a great idea to write something about the wedding and the preparations as it is the only thing, beside work and photography, I’m focusing on. Kaarttt

The wedding takes place according to Hindu rites of Suriname. As we are accustomed in Suriname, it is not a one week or three day festival, but in one day. From today we start the preparations for the wedding. Of course were things reserved soon after the wedding announcement which was in January but other arrangements were left for the October. For now guests are invited,  looking for matching accessories for our dresses, Bridal mehndi has been tested, giveaways, appointments and other arrangements are made. Actually there is no end to the preparations …

For someone like me who doesn’t like partying at all, the whole preps are new to me. Sometimes irritating, but quite an innovative experience, especially for taking some shots of the preparations for the wedding.
