So hats off to two thoughtful and loving families , who are wonderful as individuals and even stronger together bonded.

Wedding Shoot : Arvinth and Parimala

So this time i was travelling to shoot a wedding about 2 hours from Salem.  And we keep saying that being a part of rich culture is an honour. As creative photographer we always tend to be a part of the family and enjoy the rituals and rich traditions of our country.

Arvinth is super sweet and shy . His friends would come on the reception stage and say … Boss you are married you don’t have to worry holding parimala’s hand :-). Arvinth i am honoured to document your wedding and it was a pleasure being your guest for your wedding.

So here was the settings of the wedding. There was bunch on “CHANDE” performers, They stayed for the entire two days of the wedding and their beats were just awesome. In-fact they are so awesome that a person who is almost asleep can also be woken up and tapping their food for the dance.
Arvinth-1While there was a buzz from the Chande team and the guests were walking in. Both of them were getting ready. I had sneaked in got couple of getting ready shots.

Arvinth-2

I had to take a picture of Arvinth and his mom. Aunty is very sweet, Every time she would bump into me and ask me am i comfortable.Arvinth  (634 of 1043)Before the reception started, Arvinth was shipped to a temple nearby. He was mala-led, gifted and blessed with Mapalai status.
Arvinth  (59 of 1043) Arvinth  (66 of 1043)And then began the dance. The most excited to dance there was Arvinth’s sister :-p. Initially Arvinth was quite shy. checkout the image how Arvinth used his mapali status and danced his way to glory. Arvinth-4Ah !! Arvinth’s Neice the most active kid in the entire wedding. We both became good friends and we both had ice-cream together as well. Arvinth  (624 of 1043) After the reception both of them were invited to sing some duet songs.  During the songs both of them would look and each other and blush ….Arvinth  (758 of 1043)

And then relatives had super fun too. They would almost dance like MGR. Though i couldn’t understand what the lyrics were  i had a super fun time.Arvinth  (213 of 1043)The wedding day had arrived and it was very early in the morning. Relatives gathered around and we made a short trip to nearest temple. Holy Fire was built …..
Arvinth  (360 of 1043)Skipping to the main ritual, it was time and Manglya was shown to the crowd for the blessing and it was handed over to arvinth.

Arvinth  (376 of 1043) Tada !! Now they are Husband and wife. I loved the way she looked into Arvinth’s eyes when he tied the knots.Arvinth  (382 of 1043)Sapthapadi was super fun.
