111. Anvitha and Bhavaniprasad

I was recommended to Bhavaniprasad (BP) by one of my favorite clients. He insisted on meeting before the wedding to discuss the expectations, which I consider as the most important step before I say yes to any assignment. From the first meeting itself I had this respect and admiration for his personality. He is a very calm, ‘knows what he wants’ kinda person.

He told me the story of how he met Anvitha and that it’s been more than 2 years since they got engaged. I kept telling him that ‘Dude you are as good as married’ :P

He told me a lot about Anvitha. He kept stressing on one characteristic of hers, ‘She is extremely caring’! Well, no wonder she is a Doctor. And when I asked her what’s that one thing she admires about BP, she said that he is supremely patient. I knew that these guys would be more than clients for me from that instant.

The wedding was in Kundapura, around a couple of hours from Mangalore.

The way it turned out on the wedding day was that the couple and their families checked into the same hotel where we (Me and Ram) were put up. It made everything super convenient. There was already a professional team booked for the wedding, pretty popular guys in Mangalore called ‘Photosynthe’. It was fun working along with them.

I was looking forward to meeting Mrs. BP. She was a perfect Mangalorean Bride with the jasmine flowers covering her hair and all set to sweep BP off his feet.

Anvitha was looking stunning.

I stepped out to find BP still in his t-shirt and jeans. :P

He is the first person/groom I’ve seen till now who neatly folded the clothes that he was wearing before he changed into his Wedding attire. Full Respect man!

Here’s UVA Meridian. The best wedding hall I’ve ever seen. And it’s in Kundapura. Beautiful venue, inside and out.

Both the cars parked next to each other.

Entered the venue, was kissed by the cool air from the AC. Was thrilled to shoot the wedding.

It wasn’t too late before the hall was filled with the sound from the trumpets. Felt very royal!

The bride and the groom were escorted on to the stage. And both of them were so happy to see each other. :)

And then they exchanged garlands. BPs friends lifted him and came as a total surprise to both of them.

And they just exchanged a lot of words just through their eyes and smiles. :)

The ceremony was very fast paced.

Look at him. So happy!

One of those rings are given to the bride by her mom. (The ‘V’ shaped one)

Hindu weddings involves a lot of hand holding if you notice closely. So symbolic of a wedding.

He had to help his bride getup holding just her thumb. It actually looks like they are doing a formal dance. :)

BP was very gentle and took a lot of care during all the rituals.

The most important moment that everybody waited for so long (2+ years).

I love this ritual where the bride takes the seven steps to end up facing the groom.

BP why are you so shy dude! :)

After the long Reception, they finally got off the stage to head back home. Here BP’s brother-in-law is helping him to get ready for the home-welcoming ceremony.

On the other side, the mom was saying bye to her daughter. Some sort of a ‘Bidaai’. She was surrounded by so many relatives.

She was welcomed into his house which was like a small farm house midst a lot of greenery. It was beautiful. I got to take them away for some pictures now that they can relax.

It was so easy to take pictures because they were in their own world.

Overflowing with love.

Some of you might’ve seen this picture already.

So, he said that there was a big well in the compound, I was visualising it as a hole in the ground, but when we reached the well, it was beautiful. Overflowing with nature all round.

This has to be my favorite picture.
