Telugu wedding at Celebrity Resort

Telugu Weddings in Hyderabad are known for being fun, colorful, 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 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!

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 to 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.

Brihad & Makita’s white wedding was totally a dream wedding in Mumbai at JW Mariott, the memories of the wedding that we cherish and would go on cherishing for years altogether. 

The wedding festivities started at JW Mariott, Sahar with the bride & groom getting ready there. The wedding was held at Sahar Church followed by the reception at Holy Family Upper Lawns.

Brihad & Makita are such jovial folks, there was never a dull moment with them, infact we don’t have a count how much we laughed with them and their wedding was beautifullin every way.

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. 

 

 

 

Deepak & Pooja : Tamil Wedding in Janki Resorts, Gujarat

Deepak & Pooja : Tamil Wedding in Janki Resorts, Gujarat

Deepak & Pooja : Tamil Wedding in Janki Resorts, Gujarat

Somewhere deep in the lockdown phase last year, Deepak contacted us from Ireland. A few calls and a zoom meeting later with both Deepak & Pooja, we were on-board. From there on, its been an incredible journey with them!

Deepak & Pooja’s story started in the lockdown phase itself, with an arranged marriage match. Soon in about four months, they had made the decision. And as they say, when its meant to be, then everything falls in place! 

What would remain with us throughout is how warm these two were in the whole process. And of course they look so adorable together, with a very ethereal and effortless chemistry. They were also open to many suggestions that we had to offer. And Infact the biggest one was to do a wedding in the outdoors. We made them realize that the difference would be really huge compared to doing the wedding indoors, and they in turn went about in convincing their parents. Together, they supported whole-heartedly in the vision we had for their wedding. And the result is for you all to see here.

South indian weddings are generally beautiful – with the pretty kanjeevarams, the immersive and significant rituals, the early morning light and the happiness all around. In this wedding, we got more than that. The best part was how both Deepak and Pooja reached out to each other, and always had a playful way of smiling, teasing and looking at each other. When you enjoy your wedding rituals so much, the pictures definitely talk about them. Here is their wedding blog story, scroll down to see the happiness & love. The beautiful and newly opened Janki Resorts played a great host as well.  

Thank you Deepak & Pooja for having us, we hope to see you in some part of the world, someday soon!
