Father’s Day 2022- A Photo Story

Our Fathers are our first heroes.

A father is someone who is always present when you experiment and pulls you up when you fall. He watches from the shadows and silently guards us against all threats of the world. A father is someone who we look up to no matter how tall we grow. They silently support us with the warmest smiles and sometimes with heavy hearts. We cannot imagine our lives without them. 

And of course words are not enough to express what they mean to us, and hence we have photographs. Like they say – A picture is worth a thousand words. Here are some of our favorite pictures over the years, and how we love and cherish them. On this Father’s day, here’s honouring our fathers, grandfathers, brothers, uncles, or any important male figure who have played a significant role in our lives. Happy Father’s Day to the amazing fathers out there. Thank you for guiding us in the right direction and being a source of strength and support.

Bhagya & Vignesh : Telugu Wedding at Radisson Blu,Vishakhapatnam

Some things are just meant to be. And some stories are meant to be. That’s the case for Bhagya & Vignesh. They met in college in 2011 and became very close friends. But the real story started when they landed in the same city, New York for their masters. And very soon, their friendship turned into romance. In the summer of 2021, they made things official over an engagement on the yacht in the beautiful landscape of Maui. And they got married in the most beautiful way in a telugu wedding in December 2021 at Radisson Blu, Vishakhapatnam – and we were there!

We have covered a few telugu weddings before ( Lohit- Rishika, Saket – Sri Lakshmi), and we love covering telugu weddings 🙂 Here’s sharing the photo story of three beautiful days spent at the Radisson Blu, Vishakhapatnam with Bhagya & Vig (as Vignesh is fondly called). The first day started with pujas and small rituals at Bhagya’s house in Vizag. The quaint homely setup with garden and greenery around was a treat to the eyes. The setup was totally intimate and beautiful, and we made some great portraits of the couple and both the families.

 

 

Later, the next day, the party. shifted to Radisson Blu, Vizag. The next day started with a very vibrant Haldi. Happy yellow faces took over and didn’t spare Bhagya & Vig at all. To which Vig exclaimed “If these are friends, don’t know what would be enemies”. Post the Haldi aftermath, there was an afternoon carnival where everyone dressed up and let their hair down for a fun afternoon. It was followed by dance and bonding with each other. 

 

Everyone waited for the sangeet scheduled later in the evening. Our groom Vig is one talented man, and he stole the show with his band performance. The night saw heart-warming performances and some epic moves. New stories were created, while old friendships were relieved. When you get together with your friends and family post covid, it leads to creating great memories, and that’s what we witnessed here 🙂

 

 

 

 

The wedding morning started early with Bhagya & Vig getting ready. The south Indian attires, the sounds of nadaswaram, the filter coffee set for a great wedding mood. The wedding was beautiful and mesmerizing. Everything worked in our favor and we have such fond memories. Thank you Bhagya & Vig and both the families for having us, we are so thankful that our paths crossed 🙂

Kinshuk & Drishti : Wedding at Saya Grand Resorts

Kinshuk & Drishti : Wedding at Saya Grand Resorts

For Kinshuk and Drishti it was their parents who played cupid and introduced them to each other. From the first meeting, they felt an instant connection that soon turned into a conviction that they were meant for each, following which, there was no looking back!They decided to host their wedding in their home city at Saya Grand Club & Spa Resort, most of which they planned themselves with the help of their families. Initially they were supposed to get married in December 2020, but the wedding got pushed to February 2021, thanks to Covid!

The two days of wedding festivities kicked off Celebrating Kinshuk’s South Indian heritage in style, a vibrant welcome party kicked off the festivities.  A colorful hi-tea and Mehndi ceremony followed, which was replete with a lively décor of flowers in bright shades of orange and pink. The joyous occasion saw sunlit revelries of music and dance. A tunnel of string lights welcomed everyone to the Bollywood themed Sangeet night. The sangeet also marked energetic performances by Gurdeep Mehendi. Magical lights and groovy music added magic to the night as the couple and their families set fire to the stage with their moves, dancing till the wee hours of the morning.

And finally the big day saw décor in a palette full of blooms that lit up the lush greenery of the venue. A stunning blend of white and purple flowers made up the canopy of the grand mandap. Drishti donned the quintessential red and looked gorgeous in every way, while Kinshuk wore a serene blend of white and blush. Drishti’s bridal entry had all our hearts. Their day wedding was beautiful and dreamy in every way, and would give you serious wedding goals. Kinshuk & Drishti’s effortless chemistry made this wedding even more special, and we loved documenting every bit of their stories.

It was our absolute pleasure to work with Kinshuk & Drishti. We first got in touch with Kinshuk before covid came into picture, thereafter we stayed in touch and he always updated the wedding plans which had to be changed. We always aim at forming lasting relationships with our couples and families, and that exactly happened in their case. Along with our beautiful couple, both the families were super warm and enthusiastic, and made the wedding totally memorable.

Mugdhaa & Devam : Wedding at Taj Lands End

Mugdhaa & Devam : Wedding at Taj Lands End

Mugdhaa & Devam : Wedding at Taj Lands End

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!

Jay & Hitali : Wedding at Corinthians, Pune

Jay & Hitali : Wedding at Corinthians, Pune

Jay & Hitali : Wedding at Corinthians, Pune

Jay & Hitali stand out among our couples in a lot of ways. From having complete faith in us to seeking our ideas for their wedding, our relationship extended far beyond the duties of a Wedding Photographer to being their Wedding Consultant. While Hitali conceptualised the wedding, Jay took care of the execution to the minutest of the details. 

The saying that opposites attract couldn’t have been more true in Jay and Hitali’s case. While Hitali is a surgeon, Jay is a textile merchant, who jumped into the world of business from a very young age. This union of a successful textile merchant and surgeon was truly an elegant affair punctuated by emotional as well as playful moments.

Initially they planned to do a indoor wedding as many in their families thought it would be more comfortable indoors with the air conditioners around. But we suggested that they make the best use of their venue Corinthians Resort and do an Outdoor wedding and look how that turned out. We further suggested that they drop the usual stage like structure for weddings and instead try for a under the tree wedding. Fortunately there was a big tree and even the venue was surprised at the idea. It was their first wedding under the tree. We believe now with the proof of how beautiful a tree wedding could be more people reading our blog would be encouraged to try this out. 

Jay & Hitali’s wedding functions were spread over two days at Corinthians Club and Resort in Pune. They wanted a destination wedding and yet someplace which was easily accessible. Being from Mumbai, Corinthians seemed a great choice and we couldn’t agree more. Scroll down to see the photo-set 🙂 

While you go through the photos, keep an eye out for glimpses of all the minute details they planned out to customise everything from decor to their ensemble and look for added extra personal touch. Whether it is Hitali’s jewelry (nath) to her outfits and Mehandi or Jay’s phone cover to cuff seams, they had personal touches everywhere.
