Destination Wedding at Southern Palms in Kenya

Mona and Imran’s dreamy destination wedding still gives us all the feels! They got married in Southern Palms, Kenya which sits at the edge of the Indian Ocean on the gorgeous, renowned Diani Beach where the white sand and blue skies played a huge role in these swoon-worthy photos! We were so happy to be a part of their stunning, crazy, three-day-long party with close family and friends coming from afar to celebrate this special occasion. 

Check out Naiya & Darshan’s wedding we covered in Kenya as well! 

Day 1

Their Pre Wedding was just as beautiful as the country and the couple we were shooting. We got a couple of dreamy shots of them walking along the shores of Diani Beach and course a couple of fun playful shots! 

 

 

Mehendi Ceremony was a chill event with Mona getting her hands designed and people gathering around for dinner. 

 

 

 

Day 2

Imran’s Dirty Pithi Ceremony was an affair that we couldn’t have even imagined. His friends and family threw water at him, emptied bottles of ketchup and mustard, and broke eggs on his head! Then he went for a dip in the water to get rid of the pantry items on his body!

 

 

Mandvo & Pithi was a more formal ceremony where their close ones congratulated them and gave their blessings.

 

 

Sangeet was a memorable affair with incredible performances by the family followed by more dancing throughout the night. For Imran’s performance he came sporting a colourful vest flaunting his 6 pack abs and dazzled everyone with his moves. The rest of the night was so much fun that we found ourselves grooving to the beat and tapping our feet while shooting!

 

 

Day 3

Mona’s bridesmaid’s were the cutest! After helping her get ready, we got beautiful portraits of Mona and her nice moment of Imran and his father getting ready for the big day ahead. Their wedding venue set against the backdrop of the ocean with white roses was truly beautiful. After their Nikkah got over, the smiles on their faces were ever so bright. The joy radiating off both their faces was apparent as you can see!

 

 

Later that day in the evening, the couple made their entry with a bang towards the Reception where the celebrations continued with a cake cutting, the first dance by the couple, speeches from the family and a father-daughter dance. The party went on till dawn with people drinking and dancing the night away.

Destination Wedding at The Savoy, Mussoorie

The scenic hills of Mussoorie against the sapphire sky painted a beautiful picture at Vatsal and Priyanka’s fun-filled wedding. This destination wedding took place at the lavish and historic property of ITC Welcomhotel, The Savoy. They met through mutual friends at a club! After a few chats and meetups, one thing led to another and now they are married!

The first day started off with a Welcome Event, Carnival, where close friends and family gathered, danced, and sipped on chilled champagne and beer. The engagement took place that very same evening, with the couple exchanging rings and friends and family celebrating. A few bottles were popped and the DJ made everyone groove till dawn.

Early next day, Haldi took place overlooking the beautiful view of the mountains, where the bride and groom got a few gorgeous couple shots and then the event commenced.

On the last day, Vatsal entered his Baraat in a Bentley, dancing on the dhol beats with his close friends and family by his side. The mandap set against the background of The Savoy, the inky sky illuminating the stars made it a magical night to remember. Priyanka looked stunning in a Rose Gold lehenga for the Wedding ceremony.

After the wedding celebrations, the guests and couple put on their comfy clothes, and the DJ took to the console and made the guests dance to peppy music. With drinks flowing through their system, they showed off their best moves and had the best Pajama Party ever!

Grand Wedding at Noor-Us-Sabah Palace in Bhopal

India is a land of cultural diversity and so are its marriages. If Punjabi weddings are considered loud then Tamil weddings are simple and serene. Gujarati weddings are filled with traditional rituals and Christian weddings are modern and fun-filled. When two cultures come together and celebrate, it can only be fun and lively. Let us show you what happens when North weds South!

The Finance Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Mr. Jagdish Devda, had his son’s grand wedding with all pomp and show in the tranquil surroundings of a residential palace.

Ashmita and Harsh’s wedding celebrations were magical and spread over three days in Noor-us-Sabah, Bhopal which is perched on a hillock with a commanding view of the lake. It’s a world apart from the busy streets of Bhopal!

 

 

Day 1-

Mayra & Sajjan Goth

Harsh’s mother greets Ashmita’s extended family, who arrives with much fanfare with the traditional welcome. They come bearing gifts, signifying their love and blessings to the groom. Later, the families are seen enjoying a sit-down ‘Sajjan Goth’ with delicious food.

 

 

Engagement

Taj Lakefront, Bhopal this surreal, opulent, and majestic property hosted the Engagement. Ashmita taking full advantage of nature’s magic hour gave us all the fabulous portraits we needed to gush over!

Her band of boys join her and enjoy the beautiful sunset.

The rest of the night was spent enjoying the rest of the evening.

 

 

Day 2

Haldi

This wasn’t a traditional Haldi at all! No tumeric was to be seen and neither was pales of water.

Ashmita had her girls wear matching outfits and did they slay? Yes, they did! 

 

 

Sangeet

 The bride and groom made heads turn as they made their way through the crowd. Their friends and family showed a little swag on stage for Ashmita and Harsh! Ashmita looked striking in her golden embellished lehenga as she danced for Harsh.

Everyone hooted as Swaroop Khan sauntered on stage. The audience escorted themselves to the dance floor to enjoy his stately music.

 

 

Day 3

Wedding

The morning started with Ashmita and Harsh getting ready with the help of their closest friends and family.

Harsh’s baraat was kicked off by his close friends and his family members danced their way to the wedding ceremony. 

 

 

Reception

Later that evening, they hosted their lavish reception on the property’s lush outdoor grounds. The Chief Minister of Bhopal, Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan, made a brief appearance to congratulate the happy couple. 

Jyotiraditya Scindia, the minister of Civil Aviation, Digvijaya Singh, the ex-chief minister of MP, and Ramji Lal Saman, a former Union Minister were also present to give their regards.

Gujrati Wedding at Corinthians, Pune

Gujrati Wedding at Corinthians, Pune

Gujrati 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.

Fun North Indian Wedding in Goa

Sakshi & Vineeth’s fun North Indian wedding took place in Goa because they spent their monthly vacations on the beautiful beaches there as most people do, it was the perfect location for them.

The two days of fun festivities were held in Holiday Inn, a romantic resort nestled in the splendid view of Mobor Beach in South Goa, captivated by 25 acres of lush green landscape gardens and powder white sands.

Their love story began in the 8th grade when their friendship blossomed and the whole school knew of her crush on Vineeth but nothing happened until the 12th grade when he asked her out and now the rest is history.  

Check out this fun photoset from their wedding!
