Favourite Brides  Nidhi

I posted a wedding yesterday on my (other) blog -Nidhi & Prabs but I thought it deserved a mention here on The Unreal Bride as well. Mostly because Nidhi is what I would call an ‘Unreal Bride’ and also the fact that she designed her gorgeous outfit herself. I didn’t want our readers to miss out here !! Nidhi runs a studio called Blush -click here for her website and if you happen to be in Chandigarh today and tomorrow , you can stop by and see her new Summer Collection !

It is always great to work at a wedding where the bride is wearing something she has created herself. That is pretty much taking Do-it-yourself to another level!

Beautiful : That’s the only excuse you need.

Let’s see. It’s a beautiful day. You have a beautiful friend. What do you do ? You take (beautiful? ) pictures obviously! This post has been a long time coming-I really don’t understand why I hoard photos especially when it is Tara I am photographing! The good news is they are up now and you can see some here and some on my other blog-Not So Routine. Luckily,we shot so much that I have enough photos for both blogs !

Princess Mits gets ready.

The problem with an early morning wedding is that it’s early. *yawn* Getting ready takes a LOT of time and effort so you have to get it done right! Watching the most talented make up artist Amanender and his wife Kapila do their magic on the most beautiful bride was totally worth it. Loads of lovely light streaming in through the windows, pots of coffee and a few PJs (poor jokes) really made the morning memorable. Oh, and the fact that Anandita (aka Princess Mits) was getting married!!! 

So, here you go-some of the photos from that morning.2013-09-10_0001 AA_0051AA_0042 AA_0043 AA_0044 AA_0046 AA_0052 AA_0053 AA_0055 AA_0054 AA_0059 AA_0060 AA_0061 AA_0062AA_0045 AA_0063 AA_0056 AA_0064 AA_0066 AA_0067 AA_0068 AA_0069 AA_0071 AA_0072 AA_0073AA_0047 AA_0075 AA_0076 AA_0077 AA_0078 AA_0079 AA_0080 AA_0081 AA_0082 AA_0083 AA_0084 AA_0086 AA_0070All photos are copyright of Kismet Jewell Nakai © 2013 so please no stealing or using without permission.

Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY ANANDITA!! :)

Princess Mits { Mehendi }

I never thought of myself as a hoarder. Till I realised that’s exactly  what I was with all my photographs. I have (virtual) piles of photographs lying with me. Saving them. For my new website that I am launching (have been planning on launching for a year now). Saving them. For the right time. Then, all of a sudden, a year has passed and all I have are more and more photographs. If my computer were a closet (?) , you’d be able to see the photos just kind of spilling out. I can’t wait any longer. I will double post if I have to. On the Unreal Bride and on my own website. But I just have to post something . NOW.

Also, I feel like this wedding belongs on The Unreal Bride. After all, it’s PRINCESS MITS’ wedding!!! Who knew when we did her shoot back when The Unreal Bride was a baby, we would feature her engagement as well and now her wedding?

Being a friend who was attending the wedding (I sometimes get to play that role), I shot a little of the fabulous 3 day wedding (or was it 4?or 5?) . Today,you can see the few photos from the very chilled out mehendi and perhaps tomorrow, you will see the ‘getting ready ‘ photos and some of the wedding. Perhaps.

Happy Independence Day (and who won the Giveaway?)

For whatever India is, it is magnificent  . Don’t you think? The colours, the people, the culture. Never know what to expect!!!

Independence dayPhotos by Kismet Jewell Nakai

A friends facebook update reminded me of this poem and how apt it is for a day like today-

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high
  Where knowledge is free 
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments 
By narrow domestic walls 
Where words come out from the depth of truth
  Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection 
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way 
Into the dreary desert sand of dead habit 
Where the mind is led forward by thee  Into ever-widening thought and action 
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake 
~ Rabindranath Tagore~
Now, onto some exciting things! THE GIVEAWAY! I have to admit I was kind of worried about the response initially- would no one want to participate in our giveaway? Have people stopped reading the blog? Will I have to make up entries? Yes, I thought these things and its probably because we have been the worst bloggers in the world and have more giveaways than posts. Then when SO many of you entered, it made me happy beyond words ! Thank you for being awesome.  Picking the winners was no easy task but we had to choose someone and after much thought , our two winners are MEGHA SHARMA BHAGAT and MEENAKSHI KAPUR!  Congratulations to you both! You just won yourself a Ketchup bag each. Send us your addresses so we can you the bags ASAP.
Thank you Ketchup for being so terrific and here is hoping we have many more collaborations to come!
