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.

Varun & Sanne’s telugu wedding celebrations were spread across 3 days in various locations all over Hyderabad. South Indian weddings always tend to give the best pictures perhaps because they are filled with color, gorgeous bridal wear, and tons of laughter and love!

The festivities started with a fun Mangal Snanam ceremony at the Groom’s place, where the couple’s close friends and family joined them and showered their love and blessings. The following evening at the gorgeous Hyderabad Polo and Riding Club, the Mehendi ceremony was a fun-filled event where Sanne got her hands intricately decorated, and her father gave a heartwarming speech to congratulate the couple which made them emotional but soon after a few hugs and tears were shared they got the party started. With an open bar and loud music, the crowd didn’t need any more motivation to hit the dance floor and groove the night away.

Sangeet, the next evening was a sundowner to a sunrise event where their close friends and family did a few dance performances, and sang a dutch song on stage that they wrote which bought out hoots and laughter from the couple. Sanne and Varun did a fantastic number to a Telugu song that wowed the crowd. 

The Wedding Day showcased Sanne in a Gold Silk Saree adorned with traditional gold jewellery, and Varun colour coordinated with this better half sporting a cream sherwani with gold details. After the formalities of the puja were done, the Varmala took place joyously, and the rice shower ceremony was a fun event with smiles and laughter lighting up the area.

India is a land of cultural diversity and so are its marriages. If Punjabi weddings are considered loud then Tamil weddings are simple and serene. Gujarati weddings are filled with traditional rituals and Christian weddings are modern and fun-filled. When two cultures come together and celebrate, it can only be fun and lively. Let us show you what happens when North weds South!

The Finance Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Mr. Jagdish Devda, had his son’s grand wedding with all pomp and show in the tranquil surroundings of a residential palace.

Father’s Day 2022- A Photo Story

Our Fathers are our first heroes.

A father is someone who is always present when you experiment and pulls you up when you fall. He watches from the shadows and silently guards us against all threats of the world. A father is someone who we look up to no matter how tall we grow. They silently support us with the warmest smiles and sometimes with heavy hearts. We cannot imagine our lives without them. 

And of course words are not enough to express what they mean to us, and hence we have photographs. Like they say – A picture is worth a thousand words. Here are some of our favorite pictures over the years, and how we love and cherish them. On this Father’s day, here’s honouring our fathers, grandfathers, brothers, uncles, or any important male figure who have played a significant role in our lives. Happy Father’s Day to the amazing fathers out there. Thank you for guiding us in the right direction and being a source of strength and support. 

Telugu wedding at Celebrity Resort

Telugu wedding at Celebrity Resort

Telugu wedding at Celebrity Resort

Telugu Weddings in Hyderabad are known for being fun, colorful, and full of grandeur and this wedding at Celebrity Resorts was just that. Telugu Weddings usually go on for a few days as they are packed with many rituals and events. We as photographers love the enthusiasm and participation from eager family members and friends as we capture precious, candid moments that you get to reminisce through photographs. We love covering Telugu weddings, check out some weddings we covered before – Bhagya-Vignesh, Rishika-Lohit, Saket-SriLakshmi

Priyatham and Manaswi had seven events spread across five days and most of the events took place in the tranquil surroundings of Celebrity Resort in Hyderabad. The lush green trees playing host to golden sunrises and sunsets were a treat to our eyes!

Day 1: Haldi

The Haldi ceremony kick-started early in the morning when Manaswi and Priyatham were smeared with yellow turmeric paste, oil, and holy water thereafter, of course, someone found the water hose, and from that instance, the smiles and laughter of their friends and family did not disappear until it was time to shut the water off. It was quite difficult for us to cover the Haldi function with water everywhere and our cameras getting wet. All of us got completely wet by the end of it but the photographs are simply amazing for the event. We always recommend our clients to not to exclude the Haldi function from their wedding coverage, as that is the most fun event in a wedding and even though they hardly need to spend on it, the photographs from Haldi, are absolutely stunning. Don’t believe us? Well, we have proof. Check out this fun reel we put together of our experience shooting the Haldi. Reel on instagram

 

 

 

 Mehendi began early for the bride as her hands and legs were ‘tattooed’ with beautiful, intricate designs. Later that day, the live band showed off their skills while the crowd queued at the bar. The party kicked off when Manaswi hit the dance floor and showered us with her wild dance moves which gave everyone the courage to show what they got in store. The alcohol helped a lot!

 

 
Day 2: Sangeet

From what we had seen the previous night, we knew their Sangeet would be nothing short of epic. And epic it was! Words do not describe the sheer brilliance we saw on stage. Every single dancer we saw up there was either a friend or a family member.
Priyatham and Manaswi did the classic game of ‘Who’s most likely to’ with their shoes and it was a hilarious game to get to know them better! The bride and groom put on their dancing shoes and did a fun, high-energy number which made everyone go wild and hoots were heard till the end.

Their close friends put together amazing performances which they practiced only a day in advance and yet they managed to pull it off very well. 
The bar counter gave everyone liquid courage to hit the dance floor and groove to a lot of high-energy Telugu music. The night ended with everyone walking away with drunk smiles on their faces.

 

 
Day 3 : Pellikuthru & Pellikoduku

Pellikuthuru was a joyful blend of traditions and family bonding. Manaswi adorned in a gold and red saree looked stunning as always.

 

 

Day 4 : Wedding

 

Priyatham had an intimate house puja in his family home, where everyone gathered to bless him before the Wedding Ceremony. 

 

Later that day, at dusk, as the couple stood before us, we could see the silent love and chemistry they shared. There was so much to love about this day – from the rituals to Manaswi’s walk onto the mandap, her and Priyatham’s eyes being locked on each other the entire time, and it was only made possible thanks to the amount of respect and love given by the family.  During Talambralu, the couple couldn’t stop smiling as they poured handfuls of rice over each other’s heads.

Vidaai got us feeling all the emotions as it did for Manaswi and her Mother. 

 

 

Day 5: Reception in Warangal

 

On the last day, the raging festivities came to an end as the Reception took place in the groom’s hometown in Warangal where a crowd of more than 1500 people had gathered to congratulate the happy couple.

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.
