Saumya & Arpan – The Wedding

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:

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 herย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ #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.

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.
