Sienne & Shannon : Catholic Wedding in Mumbai

Sienne & Shannon’s dreamy wedding was surely couple goals, and we are still high on the memories that evening brought along with it.

The day started with the couple getting ready in a hotel in Bandra followed by the wedding mass at Peter’s Church. Thereafter the party shifted to Jade Garden, Mumbai.

With an eye for detail, and planning to the T, our bride Sienne married her childhood sweetheart Shannon. They celebrated the wedding festivities with close loved ones and friends who are families. The night saw overwhelming love, dances, toasts and a whole lot of warmth in the breezy April summer.

This one is to Sienne & Shannon, may the light of love always be upon you guys, may the champagne be always bubbly, and may the dance floor always witness your amazing chemistry 🙂

Two Weddings – Four Days of Fun, Dance, Joys & Happiness!

Karan & Sonia’s wedding celebrations had two weddings and four days of celebrations – and we loved being a part of it. This is a christian maharashtrian wedding we covered 🙂

The wedding festivities kicked off by a light-hearted meet and greet event at Kino’s Cottage celebrating Sonia’s malayalam roots in style, a vibrant welcome party kicked off the festivities. The evening saw some performances and soon it broke into a quick after-party. The next day was the catholic wedding which happened at the Francis Church. The day started with Karan & Sonia getting ready at their respective houses. We witnessed moments, with so much peace and calmness at the church. However, things soon turned crazy at the evening reception. And the evening saw dances, toasts, wedding march and some great food spread.

 

A week later, the maharashtrian wedding was planned. The first day of the maharashtrian wedding celebrations saw the sangeet. Karan & Sonia made a grand entry, which was beautiful and stunning. Further, their dance performances made the crowd go tottaly in awe of them. Later, the party went on till the wee hours of the night making people come to their true elements.  The wedding day started early, and saw décor in a palette of lavender that lit up the lush greenery of Taj Lands End Mumbai. Check out our other weddings covered at Taj Lands End (Vishesh-Dhvani, Sanjana – Rahul, Mugdhaa-Devam). Sonia wore a purple navari and looked gorgeous in every way, while Karan wore a serene blend of white and blush. Their day wedding was beautiful and dreamy in every way, and would give you serious wedding goals. 

 

It was our absolute pleasure to work with Sonia & Karan. We spoke for the first time over a zoom call, and had a great rapport. Over a few more zoom calls, the decision was made. And these guys had us on-board with almost nine months left for the wedding. 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 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!

Harsh & Alisha : Pre-Wedding Shoot in Lonavala

When we were talking with Harsh & Alisha for couple shoot options, we immediately suggested The Machan Treehouse Resort in Lonavala for them. It was a good choice, given how hectic wedding preparations can get, and provided an ideal winding-down opportunity for these two before the wedding actually began! #Win!

And for us, we couldn’t be happier to click some truly epic shots and get mesmerized ourselves as we captured the couple letting themselves loose in the wildlife. 

Away from the chaos of civilization, this was a perfect place for a digital detox and solitude, something which we all crave from time to time. We reached Lonavala early in the morning and had the morning mist greet us, adding a hint of romance as well as taking our pictures to a whole new level, giving us all the right #feels

Apart from the Machan, we also took our couple to the peaceful Pavana lake. A stroll around this bounteous water body is plenty for any tired city soul to rejuvenate, as we saw in the case of Harsh and Alisha. We cannot recommend this place to anyone looking for a quick getaway!

Thank you for choosing us Harsh & Alisha, this was great fun 🙂

Vishesh & Dhvani: Wedding at Taj Lands End, Mumbai

Vishesh & Dhvani: Wedding at Taj Lands End, Mumbai

Every year February starts on a high note and it is one of the busiest months for us and this year was no different.  It started on a great note with Vishesh & Dhvani’s wedding at Taj Land’s end,  Bandra. Vishesh was the first one to get in touch with us and what we liked about Vishesh is his straightforward approach to our whole proposal and he also said that they will ensure that we get a great wedding to capture which couldn’t have been more true. 

Vishesh & Dhvani had the distinct privilege to be the first couple to get married on the open-air rooftop of Taj Land’s End, Mumbai which has recently been opened for events. It provides a beautiful infinity view of the sea on its long end and the Mumbai Sea Link towards its left along with a long cover of trees. It makes for a stunning and breath-taking setting for a sun-downer wedding. The color palette of the whole decor in white and a see-through mandap made of acrylic and orchids was a sight to behold. Dhvani in her red lehenga for her wedding and Vishesh’s off-white Sherwani with silk turban looked classy and royal against the whole backdrop. Vishesh & Dhvani first met through their friends and it is safe to say that their friends set them up.

Contrary to the popular choice of having Sangeet before the wedding, Dhvani and Vishesh planned to tie the Knot first and then throw a moving reception along with few dance performances and DJs. They kept their first half of both the days empty, without opting for too many ceremonies or other activities. In our experience, weddings with lesser functions always tend to be more enjoyable and with stunning photographs. Also, all the ceremonies moved with clockwork precision and the lighting was absolutely great throughout their whole wedding. Checkout their beautiful wedding film, before you head to the wedding photographs. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this photograph below, I already had the frame in mind after seeing this window and the Sea Link behind, all I had to do is get Dhvani there, which was unfortunately far from her room. However on our insistence Dhvani reluctantly agreed to go the extra mile. Finally when she saw the result she agreed it was worth sparing 5 minutes for it even though she was anxious to reach on time for her entry. 

 

 

This is how the first day of Dhvani and Vishesh’s wedding ended on a great note and what a beautiful wedding it was! A lot of people would find it hard to believe a sun-downer wedding like this is possible in Mumbai, but the Taj Land end’s terrace provided the perfect venue set against the Arabian Sea and the Sea Link for this breath-taking wedding. The Sangeet and Reception was scheduled on the evening of the second day. So let us take you to the second day!
