Bharath and Priya

Life sometimes hands you something truly special, and it usually happens when you are looking for it. Bharath and Priya found each other in the most expected way :-p, but at the perfect moment for both of them. It didn’t  take too long  for them to truly appreciate what they had; once they did, everything fell into place.

When we met Priya, she told us her preferences for her photo-shoot , that it be stylized, slick and almost that it emphasize imagery with a story, our eyes lit up. What she said meant we had total freedom to create images  on the outdoor shoot and capture moments on the wedding day.

This day was a joy to capture, we got a sneka peak of  Bharath and priya’s hangout place’s. Priya  is wonderful and Bharath is an amazing person.  And we were happy to contribute something  for these two wonderful people.  So it all starts at a bookstore 🙂

IMG_1570 After a good  read, its always great to  catch  up with a cup of strong coffee, sweetened condensed milk, oh ! whipped cream on top all contributes to a great pleasant evening.IMG_1564Priya Just bowled us over, The tastiest golgappa search can end here. To all you people wondering! Its a golgappa place near oxford school. If you guys are  foodies, you need to try that road for smaller version of chat street.
IMG_1750And it didn’t end there. The quintessential of this shoot was this part ! . Yes, they are the biking couple.

Wedding Shoot: Ravi and Veda

IMG_2808[red_title title=”Ravi and Veda” subtitle=”” style=”red-title-centered” ][/red_title]

I think I can identify quite well with both Ravi and Veda. They are both a combination of the instinctive and the cerebral. They know how to be happy but also want to understand what that happiness consists of. And they are simply great people: warm, strong, considerate, and thoughtful. They are not in a rush, and they want to get it right. So in that sense, it’s fitting that we’re sharing their wedding now.

The moment they see each other here are the words you can immediately utter “Sikkapatte Shy is coming”.
IMG_1871

Its almost become a tradition for us(Melanged) to produce Jewell shots during the make up of the bride.
Ravi and Veda collage3I just loved the mirror. She looked calm and all set to walk the stage.IMG_9099Apart from us there were two other video team and a photography team.Loved the moment how Veda was getting all the attention from the Paparazzi’s. By the way the gentlemen in the blue Kurta:Naveen is soon to be a Hero in Sandalwood industry. Checkout his movie trailer here .

IMG_1910Here are few more makeup shots.

Ravi and Veda collage2While Veda was getting ready, Ravi was all set and waiting to see his bride.

Ravi and Veda Blog collage1The wedding hall looked ravishing too :-p

IMG_2059That’s Veda’s friend who had come down all the way from Germany just to attend and have a glimpse of Indian wedding 🙂 .
IMG_2065Brother’s in sister’s arm. I was so happy to meet Mamtha after a long time. Mamtha and Ravi has been a great support ever since we have started Melanged.
IMG_2111Dont get scared :-p. That’s Ravi getting a traditional facial done by his relatives famously known as the “Haldi” ritual.

IMG_2202Priest asked who is getting wed ? Ravi, without any hesitation lifted his hand and acknowledged the thread during the thread ceremony.
IMG_2284The hat(peta) was getting ready and Ravi couldn’t wait to embrace it.

IMG_2320Loved the way the groom party marched into the wedding hall.
IMG_2336After the Completion of Kasiyatra, Ravi was welcomed to the stage and cloth(Antharpata) was set to block his view.
IMG_2385While Ravi’s view was blocked on the stage, Veda was escorted by her family on to the stage.
IMG_2391Skipping few rituals in order to keep the post short :-). Ravi was handed over the Mangalasutra.
