When two people are in Love it shows. When they have struggled and stood the test of time (and sometimes family) it shows. And when finally, the day they have long been waiting for arrives, they both beam! And the family celebrates. This is yet another triumphant love story of, Shivani- a beautiful Punjabi kudi and Akshath, a smart Bihari boy.
The haldi (a ritual where the turmeric and milk paste is applied on the bride to be, by her relatives and friends) and the Chuda (a ritual, where the maternal uncle of the bride, adorns her hands with bridal bangle set) ceremonies happened in Dona Paula in the morning.
The wedding celebrations were planned at the Goa Marriott resort and Spa in Panjim. As for most of the wedding, the bride starts her preps hours before the wedding while the groom chills around with his best men and get ready only a couple of minutes before, this too was no different.
An enchanting beach side wedding provided the ideal atmosphere and aura for a perfect blending of the couple. The good thing about beach weddings is the fact the entire crowd also gets into the mood with the sea breeze proving a soothing environment. It was an evening shoot under low light just before sunset. So it was quite a challenge to capture the essence of the dim light conditions as well as augment it with the indoor lighting. A typical taste of north indian style wedding, the guy hailing from Delhi and a Punjabi girl from Chandigarh. So a good blend of north Indian culture was infused into the style of clothing and the rituals. The bride was pretty as a butterfly in a very nice velvet lehenga and a pleasant pink choli. Very enthusiastic friends and overall a perfect evening for shooting a beach wedding in Goa.
Post wedding, we headed of for a couple shoot and as with most newlyweds, the couple had all those mushy moments and were as free as the birds chirping all day long.
Overall, had a wonderful experience with Shivani and Akshath getting to know the couple throughout the course of the shoot and to celebrate their union.
