Supriya + Shyamantak

When two people, destined to be together, totally in love, tie the knot, the celebrations are nothing sort of a spectacle. That is exactly what this three-day wedding bonanza was! The cross-cultural wedding was a true depiction of how being from two different cultures one can enjoythe traditions of both the cultures! It is truly a joyful celebration.

Sarina + Byron

WARMTH’ is the one word that sums up the entire experience that we had on shooting the wedding of the lovely couple, Sarina and Byron. If happiness is measured by smiles, then this bride would have possibly travelled miles. That’s how hearty a smile she sported all the way along her journey to her eternal day with the handsome groom Byron. After just a few mail exchanges and FaceTime calls, we got to know them very well by the time we started to the shoot their wedding. That’s one of the perks of knowing your photographer, which sets the tune for the couple to pose effortlessly on their big day, and eventually, gifting us with more candid clicks on the go.

It was a perfect family wedding, in fact, a grand get together, we should say. Not just the couple but also the entire gathering was in a gala mood all the time, rejoicing the proceedings, on and off the stage. A special mention to the lovely cousins and friends who flew down from the United States and were there with the groom, right from the day 1 to the wedding day.

It was a perfect beginning to the fairy tale between the couple who were oozing with love. ‘Made for each other’ is a cliché word to use but not when the couple complements each other so well. Sarina was cool, casual and completely carefree in the way she carried herself. Byron was calm, classy and very compassionate. As their photography team, it was a treat for us to walk through such an enthralling event banked on love with ample hospitality.

Himangi + Aadhaar

Himangi + Aadhaar

When you think Rajasthan, you think of the Thar desert, the colourfully dressed women, you think of Kesariya Balam Padharo Mhare Des, of stories of princes and princesses, of beautiful palaces, you think of a very Royal splendour. Seeing Himangi & Aadhaar evokes similar feelings. Their wedding in Jaipur was steeped in the richness of tradition.

The evening saw Himangi & Aadhaar in the glam avatars as they dazzled off and on the stage on their Sangeet night. All of Himanagi’s & Aadhaar’s cousins and friends put up stellar performances & the couple formally exchanged rings, as a part of their Sagai.

We had to take some time out to appreciate Himangi and Aadhaar’s fuss-free varmala held up-high in a jharokha with beautifully scalloped edges and intricate jallies. Dressed in a beautiful red lehenga , Himangi entered under a phoolon ki Chaadar made of roses.  The duo exchanged rose petal varmalas with only their close relatives witnessing this first step that got the ball rolling for the other wedding rituals.

It's hard not to stare doe-eyed at a stunning destination wedding like this one, and the venue Le Meridian, Jaipur made it even more special. The haldi, Sangeet, pool party as well as the wedding held at the opulent space made this entire multicultural destination wedding even more special.

PRASHANSA + VARUN

PRASHANSA + VARUN

Prashansa and Varun. These two super cuties have been such a delight to photograph. The pre wedding session couple of months back in Delhi was so much fun, and we were in love with them.

The two day wedding in Kanpur revolved around the amazing relationship the bride and groom have with their family and friends. Even after the back to back events, they were ready and willing to spare time for their photographs. We can't even begin to tell you how incredible the experience was. Both the families were so warm and loving and we felt like a part of the family almost instantly.

Saloni + Rakesh

“GRANDEUR” is all we can say when we think of the wedding of Saloni and Rakesh. Not just in the stature outside, but in its very nature on the inside. Love was the winner with the couple taking the side of each other so naturally. Style comes effortlessly to some people. They are one such couple. Saloni is a style focused ever smiling, cheerful girl and Rakesh is a perfect Gentleman. Right from the pre-wedding shoot we had in Goa, Saloni and Rakesh were our favorites for all the space and support they offered us with. So it was definitely an easy treat for us to be there on their big day and capture their happiness.

With all the love and hospitality from the couple, their friends and family, this wedding was nothing short of a breeze to look back and cherish. Take a look at some of their special moments.

SANAA + ARJUN

SANAA + ARJUN

No matter what, love finds its soulmates and makes sure they hold hands forever. Sanaa & Arjun’s story proves just that. As two carefree individuals roaming around and conquering the world in their own ways, little did they know that they will stand conquered by a feeling that’d supersede everything else.

20 Years ago…

They first met 20 Years ago. Sanaa noticed Arjun because he was her friend’s elder brother. Arjun has childhood memories of meeting her once a month and being allergic to eachother and as per Sanaa he was so Gawky’!

17 Years ago..

Sanaa moved to Australia with her family and Arjun’s  family moved to the US in 2005. They were in touch through facebook and there messages were limited to birthday/diwali/new year wishes….

Fast Forward 2014- 2015…

Sanaa moves to the US for work. They met again this time at Arjun’s sister’s wedding . Being with and around her energy for three days made Arjun realized that he didn’t want to let her go, without knowing when they would meet again.

The “ups” were the weeklong trips they would make to see each other every three months beginning June of that year… the “downs” were the times when they had to part, the time they had to spend apart, slowly working towards being together forever – a textbook long distance relationship.

In Arjun’s words -  “This story has only begun. The ride into the sunset will be glorious when it comes, but it is still only breaking dawn… and I look forward to cherishing each moment that comes till then.”

KRITI + AMAN

KRITI + AMAN

Kriti & Aman both are from Dubai and decided to get married in Zorba resort in New Delhi. The wedding of Kriti & Aman was a feast of hearts we’d say. 

From the colorful mehndi till the tie of the eternal knot on the big day, it was a rollercoaster ride of love and laughter. If happiness is measured by smiles, then Kriti would have possibly travelled miles. That’s how hearty a smile she sported all the way along her journey to her eternal day with the handsome groom Aman. It was a perfect family wedding, in fact, a very intimate get together we should say. Not just the couple but the entire gathering was all the time in a gala mood, rejoicing the proceedings.

AAISHA + AVNEESH

AAISHA + AVNEESH

It was the perfect atmosphere that gathered in for the special evening of Aaisha and Avneesh. The décor was too good and the lights were dazzling as the Sun bid bye for the celebrations to begin. Both the bride and the groom looked stunning and at their best, it was a treat to watch them relish the togetherness. 


As photographers, what more can we ask for? It was a series of joyful moments that we got to capture. Take a look and feel the love in the air.

PASHYANTI + SAHIL

PASHYANTI + SAHIL

Pashyanti contacted us couple of months before her wedding. We had my first meeting with Sahil and his best friends over beer which was initially scheduled at Chaayos and moved to Beer Cafe.
Sahil's only condition was that we have to party and and be a part of post wedding ceremony as a friend not as a photographer, and he actually asked us to pack our cameras at the venue once the party started!!

Sahil and his friends also scared us by telling me that Pashyanti takes time to open up with people and is especially reserved in front of the camera. Boy! were they wrong!! Coz we only saw a very fun and full of life person when we actually met Pashyanti for the first the time.

The first day at the shoot when we addressed her as Pashyanti she corrected us and said you can call me "Pakhi" . Which is what people close to call her and we were the fortunate ones.

Pakhi's wedding attire and her look on the D-Day truly reflected her vibrant colourful and carefree personality as can be seen below.

PEARL + KUNAL

PEARL + KUNAL

Pearl and Kunal are both pilots, so of course, they had to have some bit of aviation theme in the wedding. The wedding invitations by “Createaflutter" were made to look like airline tickets to the dance performances during the cocktail and included aviation industry jokes. The couple had ideas about how to incorporate their love for flying into their wedding, but their decorator "Vora Events" brought these ideas to life. 

The Rajasthali resort in Jaipur was shining with the grandeur of the dusk and the evening came alive with friends and family coming in. Anusha Mani, a renowned playback singer and the couple's friend, enthralled the guests with her Bollywood numbers! With lots of music and dance, almost everyone shook a leg to the tunes played. 

Pearl and Kunal had an amazing chemistry together. They laughed constantly, they were at ease around one another. Their wedding ceremony was full of love and laughter. If there was one thing that stands to be shared out loud, it is the hospitality that they embraced us with. The couple, their families, and the friends in the gathering treated us as one amongst them. It is a photographer’s delight to be treated so well, and we will always cherish the memories. 

Pearl and Kunal - THANK YOU for letting us be there with you. We had a blast and wish you all the joy in the world!

DILPREET + AYUSH

DILPREET + AYUSH

When we see Dilpreet and Ayush in the pictures, we see two best friends who love to laugh, be elated and just have fun in every moment. These are the kind of relationships we love to photograph; the kind of memories that will make you dance every time you look at the pictures later. 

To start with, we planned the pre-wedding couple photoshoot  in a Diwali Mela. So what was supposed to be full day photo shoot was cut to a few hours and we had to move around fast. The ambience of a "mela" is pure delight for photographers; to walk through the beams of light falling all over and lots of people milling about; so naturally, havingthe couple shoot here upped the ante. We got lucky with some amazing moments that you can check below.

Later in December, the wedding and other pre-wedding celebrations rolled out beautifully in Delhi, at the groom's place. It was an intimate function with very few friends and family gracing the occasion. Needless to say the mood was vibrant as were the multicultural rituals of  both the ceremonies for the couple. We had enough space to move around and capture the moments. And it would be terribly rude of us not to mention the exceptionally warm reception we were given by everyone. Be it during the outdoor photography, the getting ready sessions or the wedding rituals; the time and space the families offered us was phenomenal. And as photographers, we couldn't have asked for more.

Happy to share the highlights in this feature. Take a look!
