Jennifer & Suraj : White 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 : White Church Wedding in Mumbai

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).

Church Wedding at Alila Diwa, Goa

Church Wedding at Alila Diwa, Goa

Church Wedding at Alila Diwa, Goa

First wedding shoot of this season commenced with this beautiful wedding in Goa. This couple had the best time of their lives and got married as per two traditions — Church wedding & Indian wedding.The Church Wedding follows in this one! 

The venue for this grand destination wedding was Alila Diwa, Goa. Surrounded by greenery, an infinity pool, this polished hotel has high vaulted ceilings and wooden work throughout, offering a stylish take on a traditional decor.

The bride is a perfect blend of being all classy, beautiful and modest, at the same time. And no wonder, her impeccable choice reflected in every aspect of her wedding. Bride’s sister & her sister-in-law practically never left her side and were her Maids of Honour. Her Bridesmaids were color coordinated in blue. The groom is very shy on the other hand, rather we should say camera-shy. But the story gets different with a few pegs down, as evidently seen. The couple were classmates and have been in a decade long relationship, and they just look adorably cute together!

The Church Wedding happened at Our Lady of Remedios Church, Betalbalim Goa. We love shooting church weddings. Churches are very special and there are certain things about a church wedding, which you wouldn’t get anywhere. The best part is that you can make amazing vows and promises for your new journey totally engulfed in peace and serenity, which we totally evidenced and captured. The groom made a stylish entry in a vintage ford car and left the church with his newly wed bride in the same car and we were all amazed!

The celebrations for the day ended with an after party! There were speeches, karaoke, singing, dancing and rock n roll  in the beautifully decorated lawn in Alila Diwa. Both the families have known each other since a very long time, and there was so much ease and comfort in their interactions. Hats of to an amazing planning and execution! Everything proceeded just as planned, as the functions were simplified by keeping only the key functions. But, before we conclude, wait for the next blog to see their beautiful Indian Wedding in detail.

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!

Reema & Andreas : White Wedding in Madh Island

Reema & Andreas : White Wedding in Madh Island

We always enjoy covering a white wedding because of it’s fun nature and chill vibes. This one was held at Andy’s resort in Madh Island. Our couple got ready at their individual homes and turned up at the Church where a ceremonial mass was held for them, followed by the ring exchange and a Reception. 

Reema and Andy met through the matrimonial site, Jeevansathi.com and had mixed feelings about each other initially. They did not know, however, that cupid had already struck them as they continued talking to one another well after their date. This soon progressed into liking one another and ultimately, culminating in the decision of getting married!

There was no proposal, mind you, but their hearts were already set on one another and like they to say, love was in the air! 

Along with the Wedding, we also captured a pre-wedding shoot for the adorable duo. Head on below to have a look!

 

 

 

White Wedding : The Monirun-way

White Wedding : The Monirun-way

 

February started with a bang with one of the most fun-filled weddings of the season so far. Love was in the air as Monisha Rao – a cabin crew at Etihad Airlines fell in love with a Varun Shetty from Fly Dubai over drinks. The two decided to get married and got in touch with us to document their special day – KnotsbyAMP style. Monisha & Varun wanted the best wedding photographers in India to capture their special day and they went ahead with booking us 11 months in advance. 

We, as wedding photographers, always look forward to white weddings for their no-nonsense, merry and jovial vibes – Monisha & Varun’s wedding was not an exception.  After two gruesome months of back-to-back shoots, hectic schedules with little to no sleep, this wedding – with more than its fair share of dance, drama, music, games.. and some more dance – was just what the doctor prescribed.

Monisha & Varun celebrated their nuptials at The St. Blaise Church, Amboli followed by a night of ‘Drinks, Dinner, and Dance’ at The Peninsula Grand Hotel.  Before their wedding ceremony, Monisha and Varun got ready at their respective residences in Andheri.  Monisha’s quaint little house served as the perfect backdrop for the honest and quirky storytelling pictures that followed. Her house was a hub of activities as the bridal entourage helped each other with their wedding attire. The buzz and chaos is palpable from the pictures and so is the excitement as the bridesmaids help the bride with her final look. The highlight being the cute little messages the two had written to one another on the sole of their shoes – Solemates indeed!!
Varun got ready with the help of his groomsmen and boy did he look dapper in his white tuxedo, complete with his uber cool wayfarers and those superman cufflinks. This was followed by a short blessing ceremony before the bride and groom’s entourage left for the church.

Monisha was escorted down the aisle by her parents as everyone in attendance including Varun looked at her in awe. Soon after there was a short mass and the ring exchange ceremony thereafter.
Churches present a unique challenge for us as photographers in the form of restricted movement during the mass. It was important that we placed ourselves such that we wouldn’t have to move much and set our lights in such a way that it didn’t restrict anyone’s view. Our tele lenses came in handy here.  We decided to get hold of the couple and their close family members soon after the nuptials for a family photograph. Couple portraits and the photos of the bride and groom entourage followed thereafter. The sheer number of pictures we have of the couple kissing each other is a testament to their chemistry.

Alcohol – Because no great story started with someone eating a salad” – This is what we first read as soon as we entered the reception venue at The Peninsula Grand and we got a rough idea of what was in store for us. The venue had a central dance floor surrounded by a banquet style seating for the guests.  The bride and groom danced their way into the venue to the tune of their favourite song . They were showered with confetti as they danced around the dance floor for a bit before settling down for the cake cutting ceremony. The champagne was popped, the best man and the maid of honor raised a toast to the bride and the groom respectively. The father/daughter dance and the first dance followed thereafter and the two were seen exchanging glances and making faces to each other throughout. This was followed by some fun games before everyone dispersed for dinner and drinks. Meanwhile, the couple decided to meet and greet their guests and we snuck in some couple portraits soon after. After everything was done and dusted, it was time to unwind as the close family and guests gathered for an after-party in the banquet hall. The party continued till late in the night and we stuck around clicking pictures until everyone decided to call it a day.

This is how the wedding was planned and executed the MONIRUN-way. Now take a moment, hold your breath to witness this beautiful wedding in KnotsbyAMP style.
