Lindemans Hunter Valley Wedding | Sum + Shanu

There was a bit of a theme to this Lindemans Hunter Valley wedding: two countries / two cultures / two religions. When any two people get married, there is to some extent a meeting of two sets of values, histories and ideals. But when each of these families is of a different and equally staunch religious background, this meeting can be very prominent. Sum and Shanu are from very different religious and cultural backgrounds. So that’s exactly what happened at their Lindemans Hunter Valley wedding.

I can’t stop thinking about Shanu’s father’s speech. He said this (i’m paraphrasing slightly but you’ll get the gist):

‘Moving forward on this planet, we should all be one religion: the Human religion. Our beliefs shouldn’t divide us, because in the end we are all humans. Every religion has the same goal: to promote kindness, understanding and tolerance’.

I think in the world as it stands now, this is a pretty damn good statement.

A loved this Lindemans Hunter Valley wedding

I really loved shooting this Lindemans Hunter Valley wedding. Lindemans is an awesome venue for a wedding. Nice and spacious, with some really cool angles and locations for photos afterwards. I loved the fact that the ceremony space is outdoors but kinda indoors too. This means you’re covered if the weather turns bad. After the ceremony I took Sum + Shanu out for a walk around the building. We found some lovely ghetto-industrial locations for photos (if you follow my work, you know I’m all about the non-traditional photo backdrops).

Then, after their Lindemans Hunter Valley wedding ceremony, we all headed to the Peppers Creek Barrel Room for a lovely candle-lit reception.
