Anjana and Siddarth

Anjana and Siddarth

Let me start off by saying this is the best couple, wedding, assignment we’ve shot in years. Rather one of my most favorite weddings. :)

When I first got the call from Anjana and Siddarth, I was so curious to know more about these two. Anjana is a Telugite and Siddarth a Sindhi. Yup, total opposites. Even in person, they are opposites, Siddarth is a great listener and super quiet and Anjana on the other hand is the talkative one.

I met them for the first time at the Cocktail party in Chancery. Was I glad that I met such a lovely couple, they are just way too adorable. Loved them from that moment on!

It’s very hard to separate them. They stick together like magnets.

Loved the cake.

Siddarth surprised her by going down on his knees to put the ring on her finger.

Love this picture! :D

Siddarth and Anjana did a slow dance while his cousin sang. Very talented family they have.

This surprise flash mob/dance was just toooooo good. The sound track, a Telugu song that I’ve never heard of, it was just too much fun! Something about bachelors in Bangkok ;)

Bull Temple road was woken up the the next morning by the Baraath in-front of Ganjam Mantapa.

He was welcomed in the traditional South Indian style.

The Baraath could be loud sometimes. :P

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_10a0448

Anjana was radiant that day!

Ganjam Mantapa looking lovely as usual.

Anjana was getting all set to do the Gowri pooja on the first floor.

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_10a0581

While Siddarth just realised that he is in for a long wedding. :P

But look at him he was ready for anything.

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_10a0607

Everyone rushed down the spiral stairs to experience the Kasi Yatra.

anjana-and-siddarth-x100s-february-29-2016-_ccc4561

It was a lot of fun!

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_10a0639

Was ready for this shot.

I love this photo that Deepika my second shooter took. Anjana getting a sneakpeek at Siddarth, on his way back to the Mantap

Anjana was carried by her uncles to the mantap.

anjana-and-siddarth-x100s-february-29-2016-_ccc4729

Look at that excitement, in Telugu weddings, you don’t get to see each other till this Antharapata ritual.

And the moment they see each other, they have to press this combination of jeera and jaggery on each others head. :P

anjana-and-siddarth-x100s-february-29-2016-_ccc4796

Siddarth was a little shocked to see Anjana all emotional.

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_10a0753

Who wouldn’t be, during this ritual where the bride is handed over to the groom.

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_10a0755

7/10 weddings, the bride or the mom or sometimes the dad or sometimes the sibling is bound to cry. Aww Anjana.

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_10a0756

Buhahaha, Anjana got some help to get a great vantage point for the rice attack. (Thalambralu)

anjana-and-siddarth-x100s-february-29-2016-_ccc4833

This is one of my favorite pictures. You can call it the Pillars of Strength.

And then fast forwarding to the most awaited moment of the wedding. :)

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_20a0353

Siddarth: “I finally tied the knot! What a relief!”

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_20a0373

Oh, I remember what was going on here. Anjana had to hold Siddarth’s arm and she was just very proud of how muscular her hubby was. :P

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_20a0514

Siddarth handled her very gently in every ritual.

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_10a0956

I liked the way she had to lead during the pheras.

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_10a0975

No Anjana, you are not supposed ‘ape’ him. :P

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_20a0070-2

Siddarth just made sure Anjana won all the time in the find-the-ring-in-the-bucket contest.

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_20a0142-2

Yup. Sometimes the Rava laddoos can be hard. :)

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_20a0162

They enjoyed a moment while they both pointed at the Arundathi Nakshatra.

Love this picture of both of them, did a quick couple photoshoot before heading off to the Reception/Sangeeth Party.

Having the Sangeeth Party after the wedding is a great idea. A reason to dance and celebrate! The banquet hall in Chancery.

anjana-and-siddarth-x100s-february-29-2016-_ccc4991

Siddarth was a pro at making the toast!

anjana-and-siddarth-canon-eos-5d-mark-iii-february-29-2016-_10a1314

That night was filled with electrifying performances and it all ended with the highlight of that night, a wonderful dance by Anjana and Siddarth.

We had a fantastic time documenting their wedding.

You guys are way too much fun. Just realised that your anniversary comes once every 4 years. Very special!

Congrats and Wish you all the best in everything in your life.

Hope you like the pictures!
