Saumya & Arpan could be the two familiar faces from their pre-wedding shoot Love Literally I put up sometime back here. After that fun filled shoot, time flew fast and it was their engagement, which was in a cozy setting with the usually chilly wintery night of Delhi. Here’s how everything went. Starring the very curious kid:
And the pretty Saumya in a pretty dress.
Arpan trying to de-code the sayings of the priest
And good old friend, Somesh 🙂
And in no time, they were official engaged
The blessings poured in
And so did the Ladoos 😀
And we wrapped up the evening with this!
The next day was the wedding day. And this wasn’t going to be the usual run-of-the-mill wedding. It was going to be a half north-indian and half bengali wedding with little details blended tightly in everything. Starting with the uber talented Chandni Singh helping Saumya get ready at her picturesque saloon!
The getting ready part sometimes gets little tiring for the bride. Knowing them and having a joke in your pocket always helps to ease things out 🙂 #PhotographyProTip
And then sometimes you don’t need advanced technical skills to make a breathtaking photograph. Sometimes simplicity wins. Sometimes it’s just the bride and nothing else. This was one of those times.
Let me take you to the happenings on the other side.
Kind of absolutely in love with the moment below.
Simran, who is Sonam’s sister got married at the same place over a decade ago and wanted to have a pic with her cute little daughter Nia. After 20 minutes of us trying to get hold of that little crackpot, I obliged 🙂
And then it was time for the wedding feras.
Here comes the bride!
And then the bride turned into #bongbride (Hashtag stolen from Saumya’s friends)
This gaze that Saumya’s mother held had happiness, worry, concern and thousand more emotions combined in one single second.
And moments like these are everything that define how much a brother means for his sister.
And while everything is happening around, the bride’s father quietly steps out from everything. Maybe to a zone where he is happy for her or maybe to a zone where he tries making peace with the reality that he no longer would be able to see her face every morning.
And then he breaks down.
While there’s a different world of celebration on the other side of the glass door.
With hearts getting a little heavy, let’s end this post on a happy note 🙂
And that was wedding story of Saumya & Arpan. I hope you *felt* the way it was 🙂
