Not Your Typical Tamil Wedding

Toronto Life recently profiled the unique and quirky wedding of Lavan Srinarayanadas, a doctor, and Michelle Bigold, who works in advertising. Having little interest in holding a traditional wedding, the couple opted for a low-key, backyard patio wedding at Cold Tea in Kensington Market. According to the couple “We just wanted a big party with good food and good music.” This of course is a big shift from typical Tamil weddings which are held in lavish banquet halls with hundreds of guests and take months to prepare.

Check out some images from their special day, captured by Tara McMullen:
