Michelle + Kav's traditional Poruwa ceremony

Michelle Kav. Part One. Traditional Poruwa Ceremony 

Michelle and Kav grew up at school together. They are best friends and share such a special bond, evident in the way Michelle's eyes light up when she looks at Kav. I was lucky enough to be invited to photograph not one but two of their ceremonies, each held one week apart. Spending the afternoon with Michelle and Kav in the Dandenong ranges was a heap of fun. We then went back to Kav's family home where they held their traditional Sri Lankan Poruwa ceremony. I was smiling from ear to ear as I finished for the evening- I had made two lovely new friends, and even better, I was going to get to spend another day with them at their second ceremony that was soon to follow.
