It was love at first sight for Shannon and Seema who meteach other for the first time at a fitness class six years ago in the US. Now, they have decided to tie the knot in a spectacular wedding.
This was the first Indian lesbian wedding to have taken place in America. The vibrant and intimate pictures of the wedding show they both are in deeply love.
Shannon said that, for her at least, it was love at first sight when they first met at a boot camp fitness class which she was teaching.
“I turned to another instructorand said ‘I’m going to marry her’,” the metro.co.uk quoted Shannon as saying. And, six years later, Shannon’s predication came true in a spectacular style.
Shannon and Seema’s wedding was captured on camera by photographer Steph Grant, who specialises in LGBT weddings.
On her website Steph explains: “I have been anticipating this wedding for years now. Shannon and Seema are special to me and I am honored that they chose me to be their wedding photographer.
She went on: “There was so much love thatâ€¦ evening. Friends and family came pouring in with smiles, hugs and tearsâ€¦ these two are clearly loved and in love.
In keeping with Hindu tradition, Seema was carried into her wedding on a Doli by her family.
Their traditional Indian ceremony featured many ancient traditions, including a traditional interpretation of ‘tying the knot’. Shannon and Seema also exchanged rings.
And although there’s no ‘first kiss’ in an Indian ceremony, Shannon and Seema found time for that later.
