Real Wedding: A + T Part One (Hindu Ceremony) by Shannon T Photography
When this bride approached us to feature her wedding just in time for her first anniversary, we couldn’t resist being part of this special day (and quite honoured as well!). You may also recognize the couple as the duo behind Impressions by Annuj Photography.
What sets their wedding apart is the bride’s radiant smile – I don’t think I’ve seen a bride any happier in her photos! Take a look at the pics for yourself (Photographed by Shannon of Shannon T Photography).
The bride’s first saree was purchased at Pothy’s in Chennai. Her make-up and hair was done by Nisha from Pro Beauty. She shared with us that their wedding was different in that they weren’t running on South Asian time! That meant not only did it start on time, people were eating on schedule too.
Oh, and we love how her pet is part of the bridal party!
The groom’s sherwani was from Jamuna’s in Bangalore, India.
The couple also got the priest to translate for the audience – clever! The bride explains: " For so many years, we sat around as the Iyers (priests) would chant away mantras in Sanskrit - some would smile and nod while others would simply drift off or talk.
But I’ve noticed a trend towards priests taking some time to explain
what the chants mean and why they do it and we thought it was important
to have that for ours. We also included a wedding programme for all of
the steps and their significance.".
The bride adorned in exquisite traditional gold South Indian jewellery from Sri Kumarans and koorai saree from The Chennai Silks.
How many photographs are there with a South Asian bride gushing and smiling when the groom is tying the knot? We think we need more smiling brides!
Congratulations from the ModernRani team!
