Engagement With A Cake
An Indian engagement party is a large gathering, pre-arranged not only for two soul-mates but also for two families to come together. This means there is no time to plan a surprise, instead the commitment is symbolized by the couple exchanging rings amidst a festive gathering of their relatives. These guys being third generation Kiwi farmers, we felt, definitely needed a moment of personal celebration.We approached Gurjot with our idea to help him out with a surprise proposal. Needless to say he was chuffed! We all dived into planning mode and together we sorted a stunning location for him. A hair stylist, Sarena’s favorite (banana) cake, a whole new wardrobe for her and some new and creative props. Gurjot then provided the flowers and some stunning jewelry to boot!What follows is a styled SURPRISE engagement shoot. As far as Sarena knew she was on a good old fashioned couple’s shoot. Of course it was all that and more. We are absolutely delighted to bring you this true to life moment.
