Nomchin & Udbhav : Two States Wedding in Alwar

Nomchin & Udbhav : Two States Wedding in Alwar

A two states wedding in 2018 that gave us all the feels, that has to be Nomchin & Udbhav’s Wedding in Alwar. This was our second outing with Nomchin & Udbhav (the first was at their engagement)

Lets start first with the beautiful wedding film of Nomchin & Udbhav – Reverse Two States which we made with all love!

Nomchin & Udbhav, both Bitsians, based in USA, planned their wedding at Alwar Bagh in Alwar, which happens to be Nomchin’s hometown. Nomchin is a Punjabi and Udbhav is a South Indian. And the couple opted for a south indian wedding and a north indian reception. And this is how it looked like with all the colourful vibes and happiness and smiles. One striking part about the wedding was that all the festivities majorly happened in the open, making way for some stunning photographs. Now let us take you through Nomchin & Udbhav’s wedding story!

 

 

Sonal & Rajat: Royal Wedding in Delhi

Sonal & Rajat: Royal Wedding in Delhi

Today is the last day of 2018. It has been a special, mad and crazy year. Also, leading to a very crazy wedding season. It was one of our agendas to blog one special wedding of this wedding season, before the year ends. And so here it is – Rajat & Sonal’s Royal Two States Wedding at Delhi. 

Delhi weddings are unique, and have their own flavour. We have realised this at all the times we have covered weddings in Delhi (Previous Delhi WeddingsSidhant – Barkha, Ishita – Snehasish). Its also because of how the celebrations turn out to be “larger than life” & “whole roller coaster” of emotions, vibes, decor, food, clothes and so much more. And Rajat & Sonal’s wedding was no different. Rajat got in touch with us sometime in September 2018. He got to know about us through his common friends, and mentioned in the first conversation itself how he loved our work. Then, next what happened was a meeting over coffee with Sonal in Mumbai, and we were onboard. 

Rajat & Sonal, have been together since a decade. And November 2018 was the time for this malyalipunjabi couple to culminate their decade long love story to their forever story. It amazes us all the time that how relationships like this stands the test of time, only to churn into a new beginning in the form of marital bliss, and how we are entrusted with the job of capturing the memories that would last more than a lifetime. Co-incidentally, these folks got married at the same time as Ranveer Singh & Deepika Padukone!

The festivities started with Sonal’s mehendi. Dressed in yellow- green attire with a yellow backdrop in the backyard of Sonal’s house, this was a simple yet such a thoughtful setting for the mehendi. Morever, it was November, so the Delhi wintry weather did a lot of wonders. And the result are the photos with happy vibes and vibrant colours. Next was the engagement, where interesting stories from Rajat & Sonal’s dating times were shared by the bride’s sister followed by dance and ring exchange. The couple portrait session happened too, and we are so incredibly glad about how the couple took out a good deal time for them. The day of the wedding started with bride’s haldichooda & kalire ceremony at her house. It was so much fun to watch the bride, shaking her chooda and kalire on the heads of all the unmarried friends present. The room was filled with all giggles, as the parts of kalire fell on the friend’s heads.

And then came the time, which everyone waited for so long. The wedding venue Airforce Auditorium Lawn was lit and decorated to its best. Sonal’s family welcomed Rajat with all smiles. And the stunning bride Sonal made an entry making all the heads turn. The entry surely would remain as one of our best captured bridal entries till date. We all got goosebumps as the Jai-maal happened in the lit fountain structure created in front of the mandap. The happiness on their faces that day, and the way they looked at each other was just priceless. And with them surrounding and sharing that happiness were their parents, siblings and friends. And thats how forever happened for Mr & Mrs Menon.Thank you Rajat & Sonal for choosing us and getting us on-board to document your special day, and all the warmth showered by both the families.

With that sweet lil story, you might already have an idea whats coming ahead. A beautiful cross border wedding, which was all about fun, frolic and endless happiness. When Smita contacted us, she had one request about how she wanted her wedding photos to look like. She wanted the photos should show the emotions and expressions of the people & wanted them to be as real as possible. And thats what exactly we did here!

Spanned over two days, their Indian wedding included the cocktail at Kinos Cottage and the maharashtrian wedding at Four Points Sheraton in Navi Mumbai. Gary’s family flew down from UK for their Indian wedding in Mumbai. And throughout the two days we spent with them, we saw them so excited and eager about the entire wedding experience. Be it the clothes, dance, rituals and ofcurse food, the family and friends enjoyed themselves to the core and made it even more memorable for us to shoot. So here goes the photographs, and hope you love them as much as we do!

Natasha & Florin : Beach Wedding in Mumbai

KnotsbyAMP was the team that did the photography for my wedding and I have to admit that having them as my photography partners was the best decision ever! One doesn’t need to be very doubtful if you have KnotsbyAMP taking care of the photography of your big day as you can see through their work that they are a bunch of passionate, dedicated and highly professional souls that can go to any lengths to have your precious moments captured in the best way ever.. !! Looking back, I appreciate immensely how Anupam and his team were extremely punctual, how they left no stone unturned to ensure that pics were taken in almost all the prime locations of my venue, they were full of innovative ideas and knew the best way to use light, location and space to the fullest advantage. I am extremely happy with their work and would like you to not think twice if you still haven’t got a photography partner for your big day! Special thanks to Anupam for all his hard work and for specially getting his best team for my wedding!!! I appreciate every effort made by KnotsbyAMP and both my husband and I are truly grateful!!  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
– Natasha

Natasha got in touch with us through Dhvani. Dhvani is a very dear friend of ours, and the day she spoke to us about this wedding, we knew this is going to be something special. And indeed it was!

Natasha met Florin, a Romanian in Israel and it was love at first sight for them. Thereafter a period of courtship, they decided to take the plunge in a beautiful ceremony at the Sea Princess, Mumbai. And we bet this is one of the most amazing weddings that Sea Princess, Mumbai has ever hosted! It was a gorgeous white wedding in the morning by the beach, followed by a very fun reception party in the evening. Their wedding is a conclusive proof that love shatters all boundaries and goes beyond all borders. And gives only happiness!

It was incredible to witness all their joys and the happy emotions on their big day. A big thank you to Natasha & Florin, for trusting us and letting us document your precious day and also for your beautiful words. You guys are awesome! Also thanks to amazing bridesmaids & groomsmen! Now head down for their beautiful wedding photo story!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Abhilash & Richa : Wedding at Bal Samand Lake Palace, Jodhpur

Abhilash & Richa : Wedding at Bal Samand Lake Palace, Jodhpur

“Jodhpur, a stunning little town in Rajasthan which I get to call home, is full of old world charm and regality. It was the easiest thing in the world to decide that this would be our wedding destination. We fell in love with The Bal Samand Lake Palace and it’s sprawling lawns, incredible heritage and the warm Rajasthani hospitality. 
– Richa 

As aptly described by our dearest bride, we couldn’t help but agree to each and every thing. Before, we start with the wedding story of Abhilash & Richa, we feel this visual tour of the Bal Samand Lake Palace is essential. So here you go!

 

Abhilash, a fellow Bitsian got in touch with Anupam about an year ago for his wedding. However, post the initial talks there was a long gap, due to busy schedules and stuff. The talks resurfaced as both of them met at another bitsian wedding (Krishna-Akanksha) at Bangalore. Thereafter, things moved pretty fast from there and very soon we were booked to shoot their royal palace wedding at Bal Samand Lake Palace, Jodhpur.

Over stories of sky diving in Spain, crazy BITSian escapades, quick little coffee meets turned into the most incredible first date, recounts Richa. Whereas Abhilash has been a firm believer of destiny, and says he always knew this was meant to be. And ofcourse, this is meant forever, and in a total dream-come-true way at the royal Bal samand Lake Palace, Jodhpur. With a North (Richa) meets South (Abhilash) wedding & friends and family coming in from all over the world, they wanted their wedding weekend to be an experience that let their families getting to know each other well, and most importantly, letting them spend time with their closest people. That’s why the focus was on being an easy going wedding, and not being tied down with too many processes. There were three major functions – Cocktail, Haldi & the Wedding, each dreamy & beautiful in their own way. 

Cocktail – The Bride & Groom got ready at the Bal Samand Lake Palace. We quickly made some couple portraits. And then the party shifted to Ranbanka Palace, Jodhpur, with friends & family rejoicing in happiness.

Haldi – Haldi is clearly the most fun event in a wedding and Abhilash & Richa’s families & friends ensured they weren’t spared with any shortage of haldi on them. The result you get to see in the photographs. What also followed was a after party dance, lighting all the mood before the evening wedding.

Wedding – One word – Dreamy! It started with us capturing the wedding details. The Bal Samand Palace is rich & green with flora & fauna, and served as a stunning backdrop. Before the sun got down, Richa got ready in her stunning Dabka Dori ensemble and we got some stunning portraits. A tip to all future brides – Get ready before the sun sets for your evening wedding & you will be overjoyed to see the outcome in the photographs. There were fireworks as the jaimal happened & the wedding happened late evening under the stunning dreamy light decor. Credits to R19 Entertainment for the fabulous decor. 

Lastly, if you plan on a destination wedding, here are some tips from our couple, Abhilash & Richa – 

  1. Start Planning Early.
  2. Be involved in planning your wedding 
  3. Involve your close friends & family
  4. Most importantly, have fun. The madness can get to you but you will miss it when its done.

Weddings are a proof that happiness is possible if you create it with all your hearts & love, and that’s what we have to say for this wedding. It was absolutely magical, and even days after getting back from Jodhpur, we were hungover with this palace wedding. Thank you Richa & Abhilash for being so warm and letting us document your special memories!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sai & Trupti : Wedding in Goa

Sai & Trupti : Wedding in Goa

This rainy season, a wedding blog story of a monsoon wedding we shot in Goa the previous month!

Sai & Trupti got married at La Brise in Goa, and the pre wedding functions happened at Novotel Shrem, Goa. A beautifully planned wedding, where we saw non stop fun happening for three days. The first day began with a beautiful couple shoot in one the most serene beaches of Goa. The next day started with Haldi. Well played by family & friends, it was a crazy affair. We had to save our cameras and lenses from the yellow hues. The night ended with a beautiful sangeet, where the bride, groom & the friends nailed with their stupendous performance. The bride specially performed on“Nazar jo teri lagi main deewani ho gayi and the entire audience were enthralled. A destination wedding is all about having fun, Sai & Trupti made sure that was the main essence of the wedding.

The wedding day started pretty early. The wedding was to happen as per maharashtrian rituals. It was raining very heavily since morning. All of us hoped together that the rains stop soon. But that didnt happen! The wedding was safely planned indoors in La Brise (expecting the behaviour of the Weather Gods). But post the wedding, there was a ring exchange planned right at the Candolim Beach, and it was just beautiful. Over time we have realised, wedding happiness beats all adverse situations e.g. rains, bad weather etc. Wedding Planners Goa did a fantastic job with the decor & planning! 

Checkout the photo-set below! Thank you Sai & Trupti for letting us document your big day! 🙂
