Dilpreet and Mandip’s Sikh Wedding was one of the most detailed weddings we have photographed recently. From a lavish peacock feather gown for the reception to an engagement shoot in the Italian Alps, this high-end Sikh wedding was well thought of by the bride and groom and executed flawlessly by the esteemed team of vendors they hand-selected. A great vendor team is so important for executing a high-end Indian Wedding affair.
It is of utmost importance for all your vendors to have one unified understanding for your wedding vision. One weak link in makeup, planning or videography can make or break the whole experience.
Our great team of vendors for this high-end Sikh wedding is one of the main reasons why everything went so smoothly.
Morning of this High-End Sikh Wedding
Bride Getting Ready
Our day started in Bride’s beautiful home where Ruchika from Lesonne Bridals, one the best makeup artists, was getting our bride ready. Anita Dongre‘s custom designed a beautiful cream off-white wedding lehenga for our bride. Dilpreet had worked her charm to get custom embroidered elephants on her wedding attire.
Ruchika was working her magic to create a front braid while Blair for Ella Films was getting some of the bridal details.
We wanted this getting ready imagery to be very crisp and bright. Fine touches of gold on the walls gave a very lavish and royal feel to these images.
Anita Dongre’s outfit with custom stone work jewelry by Janak Jewellers all came so effortlessly.
We were able to capture the beautiful mother-daughter love and Dilpreet’s father’s emotions as Dilpreet was about to leave her home for her Sikh Wedding ceremony.
Groom Getting Ready
On the other end, Mandip was getting ready with his brother and groomsmen. Mandip was complimenting his bride wearing an exclusive sherwani from Anita Dongre. A perfect pairing of a khaki turban with light mint palla and kalgi giving a rich touch.
High-End Sikh Wedding Ceremony Begins
A growing trend for Indian weddings is having decorations at your gurdwara. This high-end Sikh wedding was a trendsetter with having their gurdwara decorated with fresh flowers and more elephants by Dream Party Decor. This added to the glam and aesthetics of the whole wedding. We always recommend to confirm with your gurdwara, being mindful this is a place of worship, if you can get decorations done at your hall.
Another new trend is catering at the gurdwaras in Toronto. The Host, one the most esteemed caterers in Toronto, prepared some special mouth-watering meals outside of the gurdwara in a tent for the guests. For more Indian wedding caterers options in Toronto, see our blog. Again, please make sure to get all the permissions from your gurdwara before booking an outside caterer.
A well planned wedding includes taking care of your guests. The Host alongside Chic Events by Sonia’s team made sure everyone enjoyed their sit down meals before and after the Sikh wedding ceremony.
Gurdwara Nanaksar on Gore Road was fully packed for this high-end Sikh wedding. As soon our groom walked in with his parents, everyone was excited to see and welcome the bride.
Bride walked in past the statues of elephants into the wedding ceremony hall. Everyone turned around to get a glimpse of the bride.
You could see a sweet smile exchanged by the couple. We always love capturing the first look by the couple.
Anand Karaj began with the palla ceremony. Soon we were about to start the lavaan. Brothers came to help the bride Dilpreet as the couple walked four times around the Sikh holy book of worship.
Right when Sikh wedding ceremony was completed, there were mixed emotions and tears of joy. We always want to make sure that we capture the mood felt in such moments during the wedding.
Remember couples are reliving memories through the images we take.
Right after these two were married. Chic Events by Sonia’s team organized the shagun photos before we went for post-wedding portraits and photos.

Fine Dining Experience at this High-End Sikh Wedding
Guests’ experience was one of the key things taken care of throughout this High-End Indian Wedding. With the help of Chic Events by Sonia and The Host, guests were about to be treated to a fancy 5-course sit down dinner. Yes, serving 800 people a sit down dinner sounds like a pretty difficult feat. However, Bellvue Manor was fully equipped and took care of everything with ease.
Entrances and First Dance at this High-End Sikh Wedding
Guests were all pumped to welcome our bride and groom. Vik the emcee definitely made sure the energies were high as this stunning couple walked in the venue.

Guests’ experience at the Bellvue high-end Sikh wedding reception was going up a level. While guests were enjoying their meal, Chic Events by Sonia’s team had planned a ballerina performance to entertain our guests. Another reason why this high-end Sikh wedding was one in a lifetime.
Soon, after the speech, the couple delivered their thank you speech to their guests and families. A bottle of ace of spades was the perfect way to celebrate their union.
