Bridal shoot with Madhurima Tuli

In our fourth outing with Saas Bahu & Betiyan on AAJ Tak along with celebrity make-up artist Neha Adhvik Mahajan we got to shoot Bollywood actor Madhurima Tuli popular for her many roles on TV and Big Screen for eg. Chandrakanta on Television and as the lead in Baby opposite Akshay Kumar. Madhurima was dolled up in two contemporary looks for brides – one in more traditional Red Lehanga and another in a chic green Lehanga for a more summer bride destination wedding look. Her ensemble and jewelry was carefully put together from different parts of India by Neha. 

We were really excited to shoot with Madhurima and I particularly have been admirer since her Airtel advertisement. She was very easy to work with and we had a great time taking her pictures. Honestly, shooting actors is way easier than shooting real brides. Their years of experience to pose makes it a cake-walk, and Madhurima particularly is great fun to work with and we feel humbled to work with such a great set of people.

North Indian Royal Wedding in Delhi

North Indian Royal Wedding in Delhi

Today is the last day of 2018. It has been a special, mad and crazy year. Also, leading to a very crazy wedding season. It was one of our agendas to blog one special wedding of this wedding season, before the year ends. And so here it is – Rajat & Sonal’s Royal Two States Wedding at Delhi. 

Delhi weddings are unique, and have their own flavour. We have realised this at all the times we have covered weddings in Delhi (Previous Delhi WeddingsSidhant – Barkha, Ishita – Snehasish). Its also because of how the celebrations turn out to be “larger than life” & “whole roller coaster” of emotions, vibes, decor, food, clothes and so much more. And Rajat & Sonal’s wedding was no different. Rajat got in touch with us sometime in September 2018. He got to know about us through his common friends, and mentioned in the first conversation itself how he loved our work. Then, next what happened was a meeting over coffee with Sonal in Mumbai, and we were onboard. 

Rajat & Sonal, have been together since a decade. And November 2018 was the time for this malyalipunjabi couple to culminate their decade long love story to their forever story. It amazes us all the time that how relationships like this stands the test of time, only to churn into a new beginning in the form of marital bliss, and how we are entrusted with the job of capturing the memories that would last more than a lifetime. Co-incidentally, these folks got married at the same time as Ranveer Singh & Deepika Padukone!

The festivities started with Sonal’s mehendi. Dressed in yellow- green attire with a yellow backdrop in the backyard of Sonal’s house, this was a simple yet such a thoughtful setting for the mehendi. Morever, it was November, so the Delhi wintry weather did a lot of wonders. And the result are the photos with happy vibes and vibrant colours. Next was the engagement, where interesting stories from Rajat & Sonal’s dating times were shared by the bride’s sister followed by dance and ring exchange. The couple portrait session happened too, and we are so incredibly glad about how the couple took out a good deal time for them. The day of the wedding started with bride’s haldichooda & kalire ceremony at her house. It was so much fun to watch the bride, shaking her chooda and kalire on the heads of all the unmarried friends present. The room was filled with all giggles, as the parts of kalire fell on the friend’s heads.

And then came the time, which everyone waited for so long. The wedding venue Airforce Auditorium Lawn was lit and decorated to its best. Sonal’s family welcomed Rajat with all smiles. And the stunning bride Sonal made an entry making all the heads turn. The entry surely would remain as one of our best captured bridal entries till date. We all got goosebumps as the Jai-maal happened in the lit fountain structure created in front of the mandap. The happiness on their faces that day, and the way they looked at each other was just priceless. And with them surrounding and sharing that happiness were their parents, siblings and friends. And thats how forever happened for Mr & Mrs Menon.Thank you Rajat & Sonal for choosing us and getting us on-board to document your special day, and all the warmth showered by both the families.

A two states wedding in 2018 that gave us all the feels, that has to be Nomchin & Udbhav’s Wedding in Alwar. This was our second outing with Nomchin & Udbhav (the first was at their engagement)

Lets start first with the beautiful wedding film of Nomchin & Udbhav – Reverse Two States which we made with all love!

Nomchin & Udbhav, both Bitsians, based in USA, planned their wedding at Alwar Bagh in Alwar, which happens to be Nomchin’s hometown. Nomchin is a Punjabi and Udbhav is a South Indian. And the couple opted for a south indian wedding and a north indian reception. And this is how it looked like with all the colourful vibes and happiness and smiles. One striking part about the wedding was that all the festivities majorly happened in the open, making way for some stunning photographs. Now let us take you through Nomchin & Udbhav’s wedding story!

Destination Wedding in Hua Hin, Thailand

Destination Wedding in Hua Hin, Thailand

Destination Wedding in Hua Hin, Thailand

It is not everyday that you cover an Olympian’s wedding. We had the good fortune of covering Neha Aggarwal’s wedding, an Olympian who represented India in Table Tennis in Beijing Olympics at the age of 18 in 2008. The ace player got hitched to a businessman and erstwhile TT player Shubham Sharma from Hyderabad. Their wedding was a beautiful destination wedding at Sheraton Hua Hin, Thailand.  So let’s begin with a small teaser of their wedding. 

The wedding festivities were spread over 3 days with people attending the wedding from all over the world. The Sharma and Aggarwal family wanted to throw a grand wedding where everyone can have non-stop fun and the obvious choice was the popular destination of Thailand, a country which has become a favourite with Indians for its spectacular natural beauty, hospitality and easy accessibility from all major cities of India. Hua Hin a popular coastal city, 3 hours away from Bangkok has some beautiful 5 star hotel and resorts and Sheraton Hua Hin has the distinction of hosting most number of Indian weddings than any other property in Thailand. 

As soon as the guests landed at the gates of the hotel, they were greeted by the traditional Thai dancers with Sharma and Aggarwal family ready to welcome them. For us the real thing started with the bride’s Mehendi in her suite. As soon as we entered her room an excited Neha greeted us with a wide grin and at that moment we knew we are going to have a great time covering this wedding. 

Following the Mehendi we took some fun photographs outside where she jumped, she smiled and even posed with a TT racket for us! Soon the evening arrived and the sea facing lawns overlooking the pool were decorated for the Mehendi function where cocktails flowed and the bride and groom made an entry on a ATV vehicle. The DJ and the music kept rolling and people danced throughout the night. Now normally the day would end there, but it was followed with a black after party in the Resort’s club. As soon as the door the club opened a dancer welcomed people with her seductive moves. It was a sight to behold where one dancer was swaying on a swing and another was dancing in a big metal cage.  While we could go on and on about the after party we feel its best left for the photos to do the talking as they say a good photograph is worth more than a thousand words. 

The second day started with Haldi ceremony of the bride and the groom which was followed quickly by a bohemian themed pool party. A carnival set up offered people chilled coconut water in the scorching heat. But the highlight remained the Table Tennis game between the bride and the groom! Any guesses who won? 

Then came the evening and the grand ballroom was lit with lights and a grand stage was set for the Sangeet night. The groom arrived and soon was surrounded by pretty ladies all over. He made his way to the stage and while he  performed the ceremonies he waited for his bride anxiously. As soon as the bride arrived, all eyes were set on her. Both the families took the stage by storm and it was a beautiful spectacle with some great light work by the lights team. Pink Palki, the event organisers did a brilliant job with the decoration and setup. Once the performances ended, the DJ took over and people danced till late in the morning. 

The third day started with Gaur Pooja  and post lunch the bride and groom went for a relaxing spa. After all a trip to Thailand is incomplete without experiencing the Thai spa. Immediately after the bride and the groom left to get ready for their big day and their excitement was palpable that it spread to us. The bride made her entry with her brothers and father. It was an emotional moment when her father held her hand and walked her to the mandap. Sparkles lined up their entry and a cute little girl held the sign board – Here comes the bride. The bride and grooms eye met during as she climbed the staircase for the JaiMaal. The groom popped a bottle of champagne post the Jaimaal. Finally they took the pheras in a beautiful Hindu ceremony and when it finally came to Neha’s bidai it was yet another emotional moment. She got ferried in a Thai style Palanquin and she also danced her way through the journey and thus this beautiful wedding marked a new beginning in Neha and Shubham’s new #MixedDoublesForever journey!
