Glance through Varun & Sanne’s wedding, a Telugu wedding we had covered before at Ridhira. Join us as we take you through the unforgettable moments of Arvind & Keerthi’s multi-day extravaganza filled with vibrant pre-wedding ceremonies and a grand wedding ceremony.

  • Day 1 – Haldi, Holi, and Mehendi:

The pre-wedding celebrations kicked off with an explosion of colors and joy as Arvind and Keerthi’s families came together at the magnificent Mrugavani Resort, just a short 5-minute drive from Ridhira Retreat. The morning of the first day witnessed a harmonious blend of Haldi, Mehendi, and Holi ceremonies. The air was filled with laughter and excitement as everyone lovingly applied turmeric paste, intricate mehndi designs, and playfully showered vibrant colors on the soon-to-be-wed couple. It was a beautiful sight to behold and to capture, as everyone reveled in the festive spirit, creating memories that would last a lifetime.

 

 

  • Day 1 – Sangeet:

As the sun set, the energy reached its peak with the much-awaited ring & sangeet ceremony. Mrugavani’s lawn was transformed with twinkling and shimmering fairy lights and spherical lanterns. Friends and family showcased their hidden talents through eye-catching dance performances and melodious musical renditions. Arvind and Keerthi’s romantic duet left everyone awestruck, symbolizing their journey of love. The atmosphere was electric with love, joy, and unbridled enthusiasm, setting the stage for a grand celebration ahead.

 

  • Day 2 – Wedding:

The auspicious morning of the second day arrived, and with it came the most anticipated event – the wedding ceremony itself. We got some amazing portraits during the golden hour. Against the backdrop of Ridhira Retreat’s panoramic view of Osman Sagar Lake, Arvind, and Keerthi exchanged vows and promised to embark on a lifelong journey together. From their entries to the pheras and talambralu, the atmosphere was filled with excitement, blessings, and heartfelt emotions. The couple looked resplendent in their traditional attire. It was a privilege to witness and capture the essence of their beautiful union. The celebrations continued into the evening with a reception.

We had the absolute pleasure of documenting the mesmerizing wedding of Nikhita & Sreekar. The celebrations occurred at the picturesque Dream Valley Resort, providing an attractive backdrop for all the events. From the vibrant Mehendi ceremony to the heartwarming Haldi rituals, culminating in a captivating reception, every moment was a joy to capture. We’ve always loved covering Telugu weddings and here are some of the best experiences we’ve had: Lavanya & RithvikPriyatham & ManaswiBhagya & Vignesh

Nikhita & Sreekar’s wedding festivities commenced with the brisk and breezy Mehendi ceremony, beautifully adorned with shades of pink. Nikhita’s radiant smile, and intricate henna designs, complemented by her exquisite outfit from Taruni Clothing, and Sreekar’s joyous personality, made for some enchanting shots.

 

 

 

As the sun dipped, the couple and their loved ones came together for an unforgettable Sangeet night. The energy was palpable as everyone danced and celebrated in high spirits. Lavanya Reddy, a talented and enthusiastic dancer, had choreographed eye-catching and show-stopper performances for Nikhita & Sreekar.

 

 

 

Day 2 began with the sacred Haldi ceremony, where the couple, with their families and friends, celebrated in hues of yellow. The infectious atmosphere and aura of a Telugu haldi never fail to amaze us and we got to capture some best candid moments. Following the Haldi event, the traditional Pellikuturu ceremony took place.

 

 

 

Excitement was in the air as everyone prepared for the evening’s main event – the wedding. Against the setting of the earthy Dream Valley resort, the couple exchanged vows in an enthralling ceremony, surrounded by loved ones. The venue was transformed into a place of opulence and romance. The theme of the wedding was as such where conventional met contemporary. The graceful mandap with a green, pink, and white palette made a perfect backdrop for the photos and videos alike. Contrasting to the mandap, Nikhita wore a traditional red-gold saree, dressed as a Telugu-Andhra bride whereas Sreekar was dressed in a white Pattu Veshti and shirt as a Tamil groom. The ethereal ensembles by Kanakavalli brought an air of desi splendor to the occasion. The expert touch of Siro Makeup Studio ensured that Nikhita’s natural beauty shone through effortlessly.

 

 

 

The final day of the celebrations, held at Siara Retreat, was marked by a chic and smart reception, with a live clarinet performance adding a touch of sophistication.

 

We were thrilled to be a part of Nikhita and Sreekar’s alluring wedding journey. The pictures from their wedding truly radiate happiness and grace.

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!

Swati & Yash’s beautiful tamil wedding at Ganjam Mantap in Bangalore was a beautiful affair with an intimate setting. Ganjam Mantap is the perfect wedding venue in the heart of Bangalore at Basavangudi. This beautiful archaic house, with old-world charm, is a trendy place for couples to get married. The two-day wedding was a beautiful celebration of happy expressions, colors and rituals.  Swati is really expressive, as evidently seen in her getting ready shots, catching up with old friends and relatives and her happiness and smiles being with Yash and starting this new journey!

Also, these days parents are increasingly understanding the value of good photography and are ready to get the best for their children’s weddings. They are leaving no stones unturned in coordinating, right from getting us on board till the delivery of the pictures. In this case, Swati’s parents got in touch with us for her wedding photography as she works in US and were the single point of contact through the entire process. 

The key highlights of the venue is in the details, which was throughly explored through the pictures including the beautiful ponds, the spiral staircase, doors on the main mandap, and the walls painted with mango leaves, surrounded by sheer elegance and bliss.
