Hey Peeps! How was your Diwali celebration? This year, I celebrated a cracker free Diwali to support the Green Diwali drive.
We all were in a festive mood for almost a month and now the wedding season is around the corner. This time of the year, while trying out different festive looks, I always get nostalgic about my wedding.
Like every Indian girl, I had big dreams about my wedding. I am from a very small town, Darbhanga in Bihar, where we do not have luxuries like 5 start hotels. I could not even find a good photographer over there.
However, I was very particular about the kind of pictures I wanted as memories. After searching Delhi wedding photographers online on Wedmegood – I found Nitin Kanjoos.
I cannot thank Nitin enough for giving me the best of the photos of the ceremonies, exactly what I had imagined. Undoubtedly, I would strongly recommend him to anyone looking for pictures to cherish a lifetime.
I would love to share few of the wedding pictures with you to showcase his work.
I decided to wear a green, lightweight Gujarati work saree for my Mehndi ceremony to feel comfortable throughout the function.
That was the first day I met Nitin. So I was all excited to get clicked and I was looking at the camera and him constantly.
He smiled and stopped and as soon as I turned the other side, he clicked my picture and then I turned back again to pose and get clicked. He came to and said,” I am trying to click candid shots, You just enjoy your day you will get the pictures as per your expectation”.
Then I got the whole idea of candid shots and gave him complete space to click to his style.
We had a gap of a day in between our wedding and other functions. So, we decided to sneak in a pre-wedding shoot.
The venue for the wedding was in Patna which is an unknown city for me again. We started looking for beautiful places for the shoot. Unfortunately, we could not find something interesting and decided to pose near Ganga Ghaat, NIT, Patna and Gandhi Maidan.
I still cherish those pics as most of them are candid and I still try to remember the topic behind a particular scene.
The Wedding Day
It was a fusion wedding solemnised with a mix of Bihari and Bengali rituals. Jaimal and Kanyadan were as per the bride’s traditions followed by the actual wedding led by a pandit according to the groom’s ritual.
I wore the lehnga designed by Jay and Binita for Jaimal. Later I had changed into a red silk Kancheevaram saree for the remaining functions.
In between these ceremonies as well we could steal fifteen minutes to get exclusive couple shots. The presence of mind and coordination by Nitin was exemplary during all of these shoots.
The poor soul, Nitin was ready for Bidayi at 4 am, only to find that the complete congregation was fast asleep. The ceremony was performed later at 8 am and I couldn’t have asked for better shots even for the Bidayi.
Thank You, Jay & Binita and Nitin among others for creating memories for a lifetime.
