86. Kshamata and Prathik

Prathibha was one of my first clients. I still remember every bit of their wedding just because it was so awesome.

When Prathibha called me and asked me if I was available to shoot a wedding on June 9th, I immediately knew that her brother who was stud was all set to get married.

Prathik is a fun and an honest guy. And you’ll see towards the end of the blog that he has a wild side! :)

I was super excited to shoot his wedding esp. after she mentioned that the same decorator Smitha was going to do the entire setup.

I have driven by Bunt’s Sangha a thousand times and I’ve always wanted to shoot a wedding in there. Honestly, I’ve never ever seen this place decorated so well ever.

Smitha! You are one super creative person! The place looked BE-He-utiful!

I’d never met Kshamata. Within the first few minutes of meeting and talking to her, I realized that she was just perfect for Prathik. She is as down to earth as Prathik.

I almost dropped off a whole makeup set to get this picture, well I showed it to her and she was like when did you manage to take that picture. :D

This ritual really intrigued me, he was asked to hold his sister’s saree’s pallu and walk around the mandap. He was accompanied by Abhijin his brother in law. Interesting ritual I thought. Prathibha and Abhijin were so actively involved in everything. Love to see such bonding between family members at weddings.

And the two families came together for the garland exhange, it’s here that both the families meet formally in a Hindu wedding.

First the father of the bride rested his hand on top of the groom’s symbolically saying that she is your responsibility now. And next the bride rests her hand on top of her husband’s to say that we are in this together.

The reason I put these images together is to show the contrast between a bride’s hand, with such elegant mehendi, nail polish and finger rings while the men’s is so boring. :P

They were officially husband and wife.

No no, they are not doing a Waltz but following the pandit’s instructions on how to stand for the Laja Homa. :)

Meet Prathik’s alter ego. He is a lead guitarist in his band. The whole performance by their band that night was freakin brilliant!

Kshamata and Prathik 18

Meet Arjun. Some of you might know him as High Voltage Arjun on Fever 104 FM. What an entertainer! Was the lead singer as well.

I had to take a picture with the Rock band! :D
