Amsterdam is known for its beautiful canals, quirky architecture, and lively nightlife. Most Couples opt for Pre Wedding Shoots butMrinal and Puja chose the alternate route and decided on a photo shoot after the wedding festivities so they could enjoy and relax in the streets of Amsterdam.
It’s also a great place to find Dutch art and culture. It is sometimes referred to as the “Venice of the North” due to the vast number of canals. It is colloquially referred to as the world’s capital of bicycles. Anybody who has ever tried to make their way through the city centre of Amsterdam will tell you how painful it can get.
We did our best to capture the essence of this beautiful city in these photographs from the cobbled streets, and beautiful architectural houses to the number of canals.
By doing a photography session after your wedding, there is a freedom of locations, with as much time as you need. If you had to compromise on the site of your Wedding then this is your chance to have the backdrop of your dreams, from the beach to the forest, to wherever your imagination might take you.
Varun & Sanne’s telugu wedding celebrations were spread across 3 days in various locations all over Hyderabad. South Indian weddings always tend to give the best pictures perhaps because they are filled with color, gorgeous bridal wear, and tons of laughter and love!
The festivities started with a fun Mangal Snanam ceremony at the Groom’s place, where the couple’s close friends and family joined them and showered their love and blessings. The following evening at the gorgeous Hyderabad Polo and Riding Club, the Mehendi ceremony was a fun-filled event where Sanne got her hands intricately decorated, and her father gave a heartwarming speech to congratulate the couple which made them emotional but soon after a few hugs and tears were shared they got the party started. With an open bar and loud music, the crowd didn’t need any more motivation to hit the dance floor and groove the night away.
Sangeet, the next evening was a sundowner to a sunrise event where their close friends and family did a few dance performances, and sang a dutch song on stage that they wrote which bought out hoots and laughter from the couple. Sanne and Varun did a fantastic number to a Telugu song that wowed the crowd.
The Wedding Day showcased Sanne in a Gold Silk Saree adorned with traditional gold jewellery, and Varun colour coordinated with this better half sporting a cream sherwani with gold details. After the formalities of the puja were done, the Varmala took place joyously, and the rice shower ceremony was a fun event with smiles and laughter lighting up the area.
Bengali Weddingsare a vibrant affair and involve many unique rituals that are followed very passionately and this sets it apart from other regions in the country.
Arunabho & Sagarika’s wedding took place at Basho Bougainvillea in Karjat, set amidst the unspoiled beauty of lush green Sahyadri mountains and overlooking the stunning Mulshi Lake! They had their wedding after the first wave of covid died down, it was a truly intimate yet rustic wedding celebration with only limited close friends and family in the bliss of nature with breathtaking views. The colorful yet elegant decor complimented the charm of the backyard wedding festivities very well. The Petite Project did a great job creating the perfect vibe in this off-beat but breathtaking place. We had a great time capturing a lot of beautiful moments at this wedding!
Mehendi was a chill get-together where everyone bonded over a few drinks and danced. Haldi is always eventful and the friends and family had the time of their lives drenching the couple in water and flowers. The Wedding Ceremony has the most fun ritual, Saat Pak, where Arunabho waited anxiously for his bride who donned a red and gold banarasi looking gorgeous as ever!

Telugu Weddings in Hyderabad are known for being fun, colourful, and full of grandeur and this wedding at Celebrity Resorts was just that. Telugu Weddings usually go on for a few days as they are packed with many rituals and events. We as photographers love the enthusiasm and participation from eager family members and friends as we capture precious, candid moments that you get to reminisce about through photographs. We love covering Telugu weddings, check out some weddings we covered before – Bhagya-Vignesh, Rishika-Lohit, Saket-SriLakshmi
Priyatham and Manaswi had seven events spread across five days and most of the events took place in the tranquil surroundings of Celebrity Resort in Hyderabad. The lush green trees playing host to golden sunrises and sunsets were a treat to our eyes!
Check out their film-
Day 1: Haldi
The Haldi ceremony kick-started early in the morning when Manaswi and Priyatham were smeared with yellow turmeric paste, oil, and holy water thereafter, of course, someone found the water hose, and from that instance, the smiles and laughter of their friends and family did not disappear until it was time to shut the water off. It was quite difficult for us to cover the Haldi function with water everywhere and our cameras getting wet. All of us got completely wet by the end of it but the photographs are simply amazing for the event. We always recommend our clients not to exclude the Haldi function from their wedding coverage, as that is the most fun event in a wedding and even though they hardly need to spend on it, the photographs from Haldi, are absolutely stunning. Don’t believe us? Well, we have proof. Check out this fun reel we put together of our experience shooting the Haldi. Reel on Instagram
Mehendi began early for the bride as her hands and legs were ‘tattooed’ with beautiful, intricate designs. Later that day, the live band showed off their skills while the crowd queued at the bar. The party kicked off when Manaswi hit the dance floor and showered us with her wild dance moves which gave everyone the courage to show what they got in store. The alcohol helped a lot!
Day 2: Sangeet
From what we had seen the previous night, we knew their Sangeet would be nothing short of epic. And epic it was! Words do not describe the sheer brilliance we saw on stage. Every single dancer we saw up there was either a friend or a family member. Priyatham and Manaswi did the classic game of ‘Who’s most likely to’ with their shoes and it was a hilarious game to get to know them better! The bride and groom put on their dancing shoes and did a fun, high-energy number which made everyone go wild and hoots were heard till the end.
Their close friends put together amazing performances which they practiced only a day in advance and yet they managed to pull it off very well. The bar counter gave everyone liquid courage to hit the dance floor and groove to a lot of high-energy Telugu music. The night ended with everyone walking away with drunk smiles on their faces.
Day 3 : Pellikuthru & Pellikoduku
Pellikuthuru was a joyful blend of traditions and family bonding. Manaswi adorned in a gold and red saree looked stunning as always.
Day 4 : Wedding
Priyatham had an intimate house puja in his family home, where everyone gathered to bless him before the Wedding Ceremony.
Later that day, at dusk, as the couple stood before us, we could see the silent love and chemistry they shared. There was so much to love about this day – from the rituals to Manaswi’s walk onto the mandap, her and Priyatham’s eyes being locked on each other the entire time, and it was only made possible thanks to the amount of respect and love given by the family. During Talambralu, the couple couldn’t stop smiling as they poured handfuls of rice over each other’s heads.
Vidaai got us feeling all the emotions as it did for Manaswi and her Mother.
Day 5: Reception in Warangal
On the last day, the raging festivities came to an end as the Reception took place in the groom’s hometown in Warangal where a crowd of more than 1500 people had gathered to congratulate the happy couple.
Mugdhaa and Devam were destined to meet. They were working in the same company, but never came across each other. It was in the lockdown last year, they met through an arranged marriage match, set up by their parents. From the start itself, they had an instant connection. And therefore, it didn’t even take time, they got married in three months, from the time they started talking. And the energy and the happiness they bring out as a couple together, is totally infectious. You will get to see in the pictures! This was a beautiful Marwari Wedding at Taj Lands End, Mumbai.
The by-product of covid is that we can have real intimate events now. Considering the current covid scenario, the intimate weddings are here to stay. And that’s exactly what happened at Mugdhaa & Devam’s wedding.
This is our second outing at the property (also check Vishesh-Dhvani’s wedding). The first day was marked by Mehendi. As Mugdhaa sat putting mehendi, her mom, aunts and grandmother performed for her, even dancing on the songs Mugdhaa used to dance while she grew up. A lot of beautiful stories and anecdotes were shared, followed by smiles and happiness all around. The next day started with poojas and some rituals. This was a Marwari wedding, so we know there would be quite some rituals.
But everyone were excited about the evening, since it was the sangeet. Let us tell one thing – everyone in Mugdhaa’s family loves dancing, and despite everyone staying at different cities/countries, they were really prepped for the sangeet. The sangeet was absolutely amazing and magical. Mugdhaa surely won hearts with her solo performance on “Bawraa Mann”. Mugdhaa & Devam’s performance & Mugdhaa’s parents performances were also a highlight of the evening. This sangeet would surely be remembered by everyone in family and us for really a long time.
The finale day started with Haldi. and it was all yellow! A lot of happy and fun stories were created. The wedding was one beautiful affair, with Mugdhaa making entry on “Chaudhry” sung live by Mame Khan, followed by the stunning jaimaal ceremony. Mugdhaa’s parents decided to not do the kanyadaan ceremony as they don’t believe they can ever give up their daughter. We need more such examples in the world to set the narrative and break the stereotypes.
We are truly grateful to all the amazing people who were a part of #devamhuamugdh, especially Mugdhaa & Devam and both sets of the parents.Thank you for having us and all your love, support and encouragement. We recently lost Devam’s father due to covid, which is really unfair on God’s part. He was such a sweet & jovial person, and we have so many fond memories of him from the wedding, we will always remember him through the pictures.
We will always cherish the sweet memories of this wedding, and here is their photo-set below. But before you check the photos, check their beautiful wedding film which we made with a lot of love!
