Malayalee Wedding Ceremony at Thean Hou Temple: Manika + Divya

The Malayalee Hindu wedding of Manika and Capt Dr Divya was held at the Thean Hou Temple. Despite the countless Hindu weddings I have photographed, this is my first time as a wedding photographer at a Hindu wedding held at a Chinese temple! Capt Dr Divya is a military doctor who preferred an unconventional wedding, as the pictures below show.
