Indian Wedding Videography Toronto | BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir

This is a throwback to May 2012! Ever since we changed our website and started blogging, we’ve wanted to showcase some videos that we produced before the change happened. Of course, we procrastinated and only got around to doing this now! One of those videos is Jatinder + Fallon’s – it definitely deserved a spot on the blog because of its epic nature and the sheer amount of content we got to use. It was an 18 hour day for us but it was all worth it when we got into the editing room.

We were treated to two ceremonies on the day, one Sikh and one Hindu – both very different but both extremely beautiful to watch. Beauty was everywhere basically, not only during the ceremonies, but also when we arrived at the photoshoot location. ‘Wow’ is all we could say as we drove up to the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. We felt as though we were transported into another world – we can’t still be in Toronto can we? The night ended in Apollo Convention Centre in Mississauga where guests were treated to lively performances and a brilliant dance party. Not one person was in their seats! Everyone, young and old, was out on the dancefloor busting a move. It was the culmination of an amazing day with everyone just celebrating the love between two wonderful people.

When we look back on videos like these ones, it reminds us how lucky we are to have the opportunity to experience so many weddings of different cultures. We’ll never take it for granted!

Lastly, we want to mention the music! The first song we used was Gymnopedie No.1 by Erik Satie and it just sounded like the right music to use to showcase all the dancing and partying that night. The second song is one that we were and are still in love with to this day! It’s from ‘The Island’ movie soundtrack, My Name is Lincoln by Steve Jablonsky. It was the perfect compliment to all the events that took place on the couple’s big day and gives you goosebumps throughout! It propels the video forward and draws out every emotion from each clip. We couldn’t be happier with the end result of this pairing!

Until the next post,
