110. Teena and Paul

110. Teena and Paul

Teena is a friend of mine from my B-School days. We worked on some brochures for our institute then, I’d realized then itself that she is a perfectionist, generally very organised. When she called me to ask if I was available for her wedding; I knew one thing for sure, that its going to be the most organised wedding I’ve shot. Trust me. It was! There was an agenda packed engagement before the wedding which was beautiful. That’s where I met her fiance Paul who is just perfect for her. Why? Both are calm, confident and chilled out. Warning: Looks can be deceiving, Teena might look very serious and focused at what’s happening esp. in the initial half of the blog, but believe me Teena and her family are way too chilled out. (actually, they are a wild bunch) :P The wedding was in Kozhikode and the Reception was at The Gateway Hotel. The previous day it rained so heavily that the traffic was stranded for hours. Heard that the whole week was like that. The day of her wedding, there was absolutely no sign of rain, or aftermath of the previous day’s rain. It was nice and sunny. Actually, what am I saying. It was SUNNY! HOT! I-bet-I-could-make-maggi-noodles HOT! But I knew the day is going to be a great day for me from a photography perspective. :) Since I’d shot the Engagement ceremony that happened just a week before the wedding, everybody were relatively familiar. I waited outside her room and when I was called in to take some getting ready shots, I was totally blown away, Teena was looking so radiant!

Can you see the glow! The wedding dress was designed by her relative, if you need her contact leave a message at the end of this blog. :) Notice the bridesmaids wearing co-ordinated dresses. Teena and Paul The Wedding X100S August 24, 2014 _CCC8800 Guess which one’s the car the bride is sitting in. :) Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_7822 Even the flower girls were coordinated. Teena and Paul The Wedding X100S August 24, 2014 _CCC8823 Teena’s mom-in-law is in love with her. Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_7824 The bridesmaids were extremely helpful. (yes yes, I accept chocolates, cameras, lenses, PS3 games… etc) :P Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_7850 The gesture means a lot. Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_7856 They were welcomed by the priests, family, flower girls, bridesmaids and Paul’s best men. Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_7867 They took their positions and the ceremony started almost immediately. Teena and Paul The Wedding X100S August 24, 2014 _CCC8980 I was so intrigued with the art at the back. It’s a fine ceramic tile art! Amazing. Yup, I was busy admiring that art. Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_7949 The ceremony progressed and both of them were very focused on their tasks. Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_7988 It took slightly longer to finish but once it was done, there were smiles everywhere. Teena and Paul The Wedding X100S August 24, 2014 _CCC9088 Teena. You are one lucky bride! :) Teena and Paul The Wedding X100S August 24, 2014 _CCC9109 And then the whole crowd moved to The Gateway Hotel for the Reception. They clinked glasses and that was the beginning of a new journey for both of them. Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_8193 And then I pulled them away from the conventional photographers to get my pictures. Remember I told you these guys are wild! … :P Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_8299 It looks like Teena’s older brother is either beating Paul or tickling him. :P Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_8303 And then the bride threw a bouquet.. err no… a bottle to see the only unmarried bridesmaid catch it. :P (Her expression is priceless) Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_8327 And then I managed to take them away from the wild family/friends to get some pictures. Don’t they look truly in love. :) They met just a few months back. Can you believe it. Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_8351 Teena. You looked absolutely magazine-like gorgeous! :) Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_8357 Again. Teena. You are one lucky bride! :P Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_8379 This was just awesome. I think every newly wed should do this. They had both their names engraved on the ring. And. And. Also their wedding date! Yup! Tip for a happy married life. :P Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_8421 And Mrs Teena decides do this. (Love sharing the behind the scenes pictures, to give readers a complete picture) Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_8415 Such love birds I say! :) Teena and Paul The Wedding Canon EOS 5D Mark II August 24, 2014 IMG_8398 Teena and Paul. Congratulations and Wish you the best in life wherever you are! :) Thank you for letting me shoot such an organised wedding. I had a fantastic time shooting. Hope you like the pictures.
