Jennifer & Suraj : Christian Wedding at Hilton, Mumbai
Jennifer & Suraj met in college and they had an instant connection. From hanging out to making many plans, Suraj & Jennifer were inseparable. But like every couple goes through a test, they went through the test of long distance, but they persevered and made things work. Their story runs a decade long. And on their tenth proposal anniversary, they took their forever vows. And it was a beautiful affair at Hilton, Mumbai.
The wedding happened as per two traditions- Malayali Temple Wedding and Christian White Wedding. They took their vows by the pool at Hilton, Mumbai. The intimate wedding resulted in making way for several heartfelt moments between the couple, their family and friends, overwhelmed with all the love that Suraj & Jennifer have for each other. And of course making way for a very fun after party where they let everything loose. Happening at a time when the world was stuck with covid, this wedding was a refreshing delight!

Brihad & Makita’s white wedding was totally a dream wedding in Mumbai at JW Mariott, the memories of the wedding that we cherish and would go on cherishing for years altogether.
The wedding festivities started at JW Mariott, Sahar with the bride & groom getting ready there. The wedding was held at Sahar Church followed by the reception at Holy Family Upper Lawns. They are such fun-loving people, it was literally like shooting a friend’s wedding. Brihad & Makita are such jovial folks, there was never a dull moment with them, infact we don’t have a count how much we laughed with them and their wedding was beautifullin every way. We at KnotsbyAMP have covered a lot of christian weddings, infact we have covered the maximum christian weddings if you see (Meghna-Jivesh, Monisha-Varun, Natasha-Florin, Ishita-Snehasish). This is another addition to the list, and we look forward to cover many more. Before checking out the wedding photos, do checkout Brihad & Makita’s wedding film
For Kinshuk and Drishti it was their parents who played cupid and introduced them to each other. From the first meeting, they felt an instant connection that soon turned into a conviction that they were meant for each, following which, there was no looking back!They decided to host their wedding in their home city at Saya Grand Club & Spa Resort, most of which they planned themselves with the help of their families. Initially they were supposed to get married in December 2020, but the wedding got pushed to February 2021, thanks to Covid!
The two days of wedding festivities kicked off Celebrating Kinshuk’s South Indian heritage in style, a vibrant welcome party kicked off the festivities. A colorful hi-tea and Mehndi ceremony followed, which was replete with a lively décor of flowers in bright shades of orange and pink. The joyous occasion saw sunlit revelries of music and dance. A tunnel of string lights welcomed everyone to the Bollywood themed Sangeet night. The sangeet also marked energetic performances by Gurdeep Mehendi. Magical lights and groovy music added magic to the night as the couple and their families set fire to the stage with their moves, dancing till the wee hours of the morning.
And finally the big day saw décor in a palette full of blooms that lit up the lush greenery of the venue. A stunning blend of white and purple flowers made up the canopy of the grand mandap. Drishti donned the quintessential red and looked gorgeous in every way, while Kinshuk wore a serene blend of white and blush. Drishti’s bridal entry had all our hearts. Their day wedding was beautiful and dreamy in every way, and would give you serious wedding goals. Kinshuk & Drishti’s effortless chemistry made this wedding even more special, and we loved documenting every bit of their stories.
It was our absolute pleasure to work with Kinshuk & Drishti. We first got in touch with Kinshuk before covid came into picture, thereafter we stayed in touch and he always updated the wedding plans which had to be changed. 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 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!
Jay & Hitali stand out among our couples in a lot of ways. From having complete faith in us to seeking our ideas for their wedding, our relationship extended far beyond the duties of a Wedding Photographer to being their Wedding Consultant. While Hitali conceptualised the wedding, Jay took care of the execution to the minutest of the details.
The saying that opposites attract couldn’t have been more true in Jay and Hitali’s case. While Hitali is a surgeon, Jay is a textile merchant, who jumped into the world of business from a very young age. This union of a successful textile merchant and surgeon was truly an elegant affair punctuated by emotional as well as playful moments.
Initially they planned to do a indoor wedding as many in their families thought it would be more comfortable indoors with the air conditioners around. But we suggested that they make the best use of their venue Corinthians Resort and do an Outdoor wedding and look how that turned out. We further suggested that they drop the usual stage like structure for weddings and instead try for a under the tree wedding. Fortunately there was a big tree and even the venue was surprised at the idea. It was their first wedding under the tree. We believe now with the proof of how beautiful a tree wedding could be more people reading our blog would be encouraged to try this out.
Jay & Hitali’s wedding functions were spread over two days at Corinthians Club and Resort in Pune. They wanted a destination wedding and yet someplace which was easily accessible. Being from Mumbai, Corinthians seemed a great choice and we couldn’t agree more. Scroll down to see the photo-set 🙂
While you go through the photos, keep an eye out for glimpses of all the minute details they planned out to customise everything from decor to their ensemble and look for added extra personal touch. Whether it is Hitali’s jewelry (nath) to her outfits and Mehandi or Jay’s phone cover to cuff seams, they had personal touches everywhere.
Deepak & Pooja : Tamil Wedding in Janki Resorts, Gujarat
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!
