Avinash & Vaishnavi’s Wedding at Grand Hyatt Goa

Avinash & Vaishnavi’s Wedding at Grand Hyatt Goa

Avinash & Vaishnavi’s Wedding at Grand Hyatt Goa

Avinash &  Vaishnavi’s destination wedding at Grand Hyatt Goa will give all people major couple goals to dream of for many years to come. They chose one of the top exotic locations in India: Grand Hyatt Goa. Their wedding is just as fun and breathtaking as it can get. The viral reel on our Instagram is a testament to that!

Destination Weddings are our favorites to shoot as they offer great backgrounds, scenic locale, and large outdoor venues replete with lots of fun and frolic. At the same time, they are very challenging both physically and mentally. In the end, the breathtaking photos and films make it all the more worthwhile. Avinash and Vaishnavi are both doctors by profession and had their hearts set on having an enchanting wedding by the beach, so they decided on Grand Hyatt as the venue for their big day. What they loved about the property was the lush green lawns with a view of Bambolim Bay. We had the good fortune of shooting Vaishnavi’s friend Sanjana’s wedding and that is how she found us. In her words, she absolutely fell in love with their photographs. 

The story of how they met is just as interesting as their wedding. When Vaishnavi got her residency, Avinash happened to be her senior at Medical college in Pune. It all started with Vaishnavi looking to speak to a senior to get information about the college and get a sense of how the program is going to help her. She found Avinash’s contact through a mutual friend and she had a few queries about the residency, but he gave a little sass and told her to call him later. However, after that one phone call that evening, they both felt a spark between them. Just to get her mentored under him in the same program he bribed the clerk and it worked! Fate played a huge role in their love story and now they are married!

We had a fabulous time capturing moments of this beautiful Gujrati and Marwadi wedding. Their two-day destination wedding saw a series of events:

Day 1

It started with a Welcome lunch & Mehendi in the beautiful lush lawns of the property. The Vibrant decor of the venue set the mood for the celebrations. It was adorned in yellow and pink drapes along with bright flowers. Vaishnavi wore a beautiful forest green lehenga by Debyani and co. The couple entered in a cycle rickshaw and then waltzed their way through the crowd. 

 

Later, that evening the Ring Ceremony and Sangeet took place in one of the indoor ballrooms. Avinash and Vaishnavi looked picture-perfect walking hand in hand. She was all decked up in a navy blue sequined lehenga by Mishru and he cleaned well well in an all-black sherwani. They made their way through the crowd, dancing and smiling their hearts out. On stage, after the couple exchanged rings, the night was marked by a lot of lively dance performances by the friends and family of the couple. They themselves put on a fantastic show for the crowd. The highlight of the evening was a special singing performance by Avinash. Then for the rest of the night, the party continued on with all the liquid courage in their system and the DJ Vency Coutinho whipping out beats and keeping the party alive.

 

 

Day 2

Bhaat & Telbaan was a more traditional event for Avinash. After all the rituals were performed they followed it up with Brunch. It was a carnival for adults with fun games, a tarot card reader where most people queued up for and drinks to jive to the music. Vaishnavi wore a sequined white sharara by Payal Singhai. The couple greeted everyone on their way in and played a few games before heading back to their rooms to get ready for their big day. 

 

We witnessed a beautiful Gujrati sundowner Wedding in Goa- they had all the elements of a fairytale wedding infused with traditions. The mandap was the real showstopper, set against the gorgeous backdrop of the setting sun with a mirrored walkway leading to it, and was decorated with white and red flowers. Vaishnavi looked absolutely beautiful in a mustard gold lehenga by Rimple & Harpreet, paired with gold and Kundan jewellery and a minimal look by Nilofer Merchant. Her radiant smile completed the entire look.

Avinash entered his Baraat in a vintage car, dancing to the dhol beats followed by his gang of boys by his side. Vaishnavi’s bridesmaids lead her to the Varmaala stage with ‘Tere hi Hum’  playing in the background. It was such as emotional moment for both of them as this was the first concert they attended together and this song holds a huge significance in their hearts. Soon after that, they got married following a traditional Gujrati ceremony. The love and chemistry shared between them were evident as you can see in the photos making them a photographer’s delight. The fireworks at the end were a magical sight to behold, signifying the end of a special day.

It was the day, a decade-long love story was culminating in a forever story, and the love and happiness around were lit up in every way.

Aditi and Gaurav had a post-wedding shoot in Dubai. Most people would say Dubai is known for its wealth, skyscrapers, luxury shopping, glitzy nightlife, and white-clad Arabs driving expensive cars on desert roads. Dubai during the night is beautiful with the skyscrapers glowing in the dark and the dancing rain fountains captivating everyone’s attention. We made use of the brilliant scenery in our photos. We have a blast photographing this couple!

 

 

 

Couple Shoot in Amsterdam

Couple Shoot in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is known for its beautiful canals, quirky architecture, and lively nightlife. Most Couples opt for Pre Wedding Shoots but Mrinal and Puja chose the alternate route and decided on a photo shoot after the wedding festivities so they could enjoy and relax in the streets of Amsterdam.

It’s also a great place to find Dutch art and culture. It is sometimes referred to as the “Venice of the North” due to the vast number of canals. It is colloquially referred to as the world’s capital of bicycles. Anybody who has ever tried to make their way through the city centre of Amsterdam will tell you how painful it can get.

We did our best to capture the essence of this beautiful city in these photographs from the cobbled streets, and beautiful architectural houses to the number of canals.

By doing a photography session after your wedding, there is a freedom of locations, with as much time as you need. If you had to compromise on the site of your Wedding then this is your chance to have the backdrop of your dreams, from the beach to the forest, to wherever your imagination might take you.
