105. Rima and Rahul

I met Rima and Rahul for the first time at StarBucks and the first thing I noticed was they smiled a lot. They shared so many stories, about how they met, some hilarious moments with their cousins and friends. It felt like I knew them for ages. And when we finally calmed down a bit, I asked them if they had any specific requirements and they laughed and said, Dude we just want to have fun during the wedding and I know you’d capture it all. I had a feeling that this wedding shoot would be awesome. :)

A Bengali marrying a Malayalee, it had to be interesting. :)

They got married at Hotel Royal Orchid near Old Airport Road. Ram and me, walked into the hotel scouting for good locations for some pictures and we suddenly see the venue. I remember both of us going ‘WHOA!’ :) Rima hadn’t mentioned that it was an outdoor wedding. We did a little dance! :)

The decorator had used flowers very generously and the theme was so vibrant!

It was an Arya Samaj wedding and by now you all know that we love to shoot Arya Samaj weddings.

I managed to catch the bride all set to sweep Rahul off his feet.

The rituals took off as soon as they shook hands. :)

Arya Samaj rituals are all about making promises with fire as the witness.
