We've been photographing weddings for years now, and it's magical to watch the emotions that sweep over the couple's faces just before the ceremony. There is excitement, there's nervousness, and a dozen other feelings -- but there's always this glow. The glow of knowing "I'm about to marry this amazing person". The glow of love.
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.
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.

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.
Infinite blue, enthralling green, caring family, crazy friends, soul-filling food, mesmerizing music, dance, tradition, love and MORE. Just so many things flash across our minds as we look back at three wonderful days of celebrating love. Everything seemed to be the way they were meant to be; a lot like Love… a lot like Pracheta & Shrey.
Easily, this is one of the best weddings we’ve shot in 2018. Just the way to look forward to a happy new year ahead. Take a look for yourself at the series of lovely moments in motion.

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.

“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.
