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!

Priyanka & Vishesh: Sindhi Wedding in Nagpur

Priyanka & Vishesh: Sindhi Wedding in Nagpur

Priyanka & Vishesh: Sindhi Wedding in Nagpur

 We love bringing stories from all parts of the country as much as we love shooting them. But, the wedding season really keeps us on our toes that we often miss out sharing some really great stuff due to new weddings coming on our way. Struggles of a Wedding Photographer! (Sighs) . This one is about an year ago, when Vishesh and Priyanka got married at Sun and Sand hotel in Nagpur as per sindhi rituals. They celebrated their wedding anniversary a month ago.  Priyanka, a CA hails from Indore while Vishesh is an IT engineer who works in U.S, belonging from Nagpur. Thus, the destination Nagpur.  How the photographs do the major talking for the gorgeous bride and the good-looking groom on their wedding, you shall spectate here.

Priyanka and Vishesh had separate ladies “Sangeet” functions. We covered the groom’s Sangeet function which was clubbed with his thread ceremony.  While everyone were having a blast, we were on our toes capturing all the action as real as it could get. That involved going frighteningly close to people dancing frantically. We love the unhindered candid action shots and to get them right we often had to push ourselves off the limits. The next day the baraat started late afternoon in the blazing heat of May in Nagpur and it was excruciatingly hot! We were really surprised with the enthusiasm with which everyone danced in the blazing sun. Photographs don’t come out well when the sun is high in the sky, it casts ugly dark shadows on the faces. So we waited for the baraat to pass through the shade of a tree and then sprung to action. It is important to see how the light is falling on the subjects. Sometimes even during the bright sunny day because of light reflecting from a nearby light colored wall or glass buildings, the light can come at just the right angle. It is also a good idea to use a flash along with a ND filter. Okay, enough of technalities now, Right (blushes)!

After the baraat was welcomed the groom headed for bride’s room where a small ceremony was performed. The room was filled with laughter with women cracking and teasing the couple throughout the ceremony. Thereafter they proceeded together to Mandap and we will surrender you to the photographs of the day to narrate the rest of wedding.

Priyanka looked like a beautiful “Red-dream” in her stunning  Red Lehenga, matching it with golden jewellery whereas Vishesh looked suave in his White Sherwani.

 After the wedding, there was a reception ceremony where the bride and groom made a fashionably late entry, hand in hand. And as soon as they got on stage the sky burst into fireworks and the stage was lit with pyro-works. By the way, it was really hard to believe that this stunning couple had an arranged marriage, because their chemistry reveals that they know each other since ages altogether. We had an amazing session with our enthusiastic couple who took out time after reception for some beautiful photographs in the hotel premises. The recreation of a ball dance and a date for some romantic fairy tale photographs paid off all our hard-work. 

If you wish to know how we shot these photographs. Comment in the section below and we will disclose our technique.
