Persian Wedding Photos

We are very familiar with Persian wedding traditions. Whether it’s a full 300-1000 person wedding or a smaller more intimate event we love it all. The extravagant decor of Persian weddings is generally breathtaking. We are very familiar with the flow of the Aghd and will make sure we get lots of photos of the Sofreh Aghd. Our favourite part is the crazy dancing at the reception! We have photographed some amazing Events in Vancouver, Whistler, North Vancouver as well as some great destinations.

The most significant day in the Persian wedding is the day of the ceremony. Consultants can help with finding Persian wedding gowns, hairstyles for bridesmaids & mothers of bride & groom as well as photographers to capture every moment of this incredible day with an amazing photo album that the bride will cherish the rest of her life

The Importance of Persian Weddings and Their Traditions

Persian weddings, or Mehrieh as they are called in Persian, are often characterized as an event of great importance. It is where the bride and groom will be formally wed and welcomed into their new family. The bride is usually presented with a dowry by her groom’s family.

The wedding includes many traditional Persian customs and traditions that date back to ancient Persia. Some of these customs include: having a special meal for the bride and groom, giving the bride a dowry from her future husband’s family, and celebrating with sweets like Halva.

Typically How Long Is The Ceremony?

Every wedding is different and on average they last about an hour. Some couples choose a fun upbeat first dance/entrance, while others opt for a more traditional path with vows and prayers.
