Savina and Dheeraj’s wedding took place up in the North East at the Gateshead Hilton Hotel, Newcastle Upon Tyne. We’d been filming a wedding locally on the day before so we knew it would be an early start as we had to travel up to Newcastle. Camera batteries charged, footage from the day before all backed up, we were ready. At 6.00am we left home to make the 3 hour journey to the North East. Being a Sunday and early, the roads were very kind to us. The Sehra Bundi ceremony was to take place at 10.00am, followed by the Baaraat, the milnis (full of laughter) the actual Hindu wedding ceremony and then the evening celebrations. the party was excellent with guests dancing along to popular music tracks sang by Navin Kundra.
It was an action packed day from start to finish but a thoroughly enjoyable one. Savina her family and guests made us very welcome. Savina, is a very beautiful young lady and we wish her and Dheeraj many, many years of happiness in there married life together.
We filmed the whole wedding using DSLRs in particular, the Canon 5D MKIII, Canon 7D and the Canon 600D that we use purely on the Slider. For audio recording, we set the Zoom H4N directly into the DJ,s sound system to get good quality audio. For back-up we used a couple of DS40’s.
