The Toy Hotel & The Unreal Bride

If you asked me what wedding season looked like for us , I would say it begins around end of  September and runs through till the second week of March. It’s a rough estimation made by the number of invites we get for weddings during that period of time and of course now, work that comes our way in those months. Needless to say, we go through some slow months which is fine by us because that’s when it gets pretty hot! So, what do we do in non-wedding season? We blog, a lot more than we blog now as you can see- wedding season is in full swing at the mo! Apart from blogging, we have been lucky to get some pretty cool assignments which aren’t wedding related but do require a stylist and photographer to work together!

One of these cool assignments was brought to our attention thanks to our friends over at HDegree. They are kind of crazy and cool at the same time so we get along really well!! We have worked with these boys before on an ad campaign but I never got down to blogging about it – I have a hundred excuses why and maybe one day I will blog about it but for now, lets focus on this shoot.

The assignment at hand was to shoot the interiors of a brand new hotel called the Toy Hotel that has opened up in the city -a ‘fashion’ hotel. The people behind this cool, unique hotel aren’t complete strangers on our blog- we have featured them twice- once for their wedding card and once as our favourite bride! We were meant to work with them 🙂

The day of the shoot was fun (and tiring) but the strangest thing was when April came to pick me up- we were wearing the same shirt! Our unreal uniform! It isn’t the first time this has happened. We thought we would stick out like sore thumbs -total geeks for wearing the same thing but no one really noticed. Boys,I tell ya!!

Our to-do list was long but somehow we managed to set up the conference room, the banquet hall, the Indian restaurant, and take food shots all in one day!I have to admit that my favourite part of the day were the food shots because after photographing it, we ate it all up! How professional, right? Well- we were really hungry and the food was beyond delicious.

So, what did you think of our diversion from photographing brides and other wedding-y things ? Though, this isn’t really off the topic of weddings because the lovely couple behind the Toy Hotel had a few of their wedding functions here and it is actually an ideal place to have a sangeet or a mehendi lunch !! At the end of the day- anything can be wedding related, right?

Thanks to Paul and Harkirat for including us in this project. You can find them  on twitter -as Hdegree , Cockybox and HarkiratBrara– it’s where we all became friends (viva la twitter !) even though we were kind of in the same college. Kind of.

Head over to the Toy Hotels facebook page to find out more about them and next time you are in Chandigarh -make sure you go and eat some of their yummy food! You can also see the rest of the photos from the shoot that day since we couldn’t possibly post them all here!

We hope to be more regular with our blogging now- with  regular doses of tuesday shoesday and thursday purseday as well. *fingers crossed* We also have a whole lot of fun posts waiting to be published,which we won’t keep from you any longer- so see you guys around!
