{ Real Wedding } Sam & Richie: Part II

I know I promised you the next post in just a couple of hours yesterday, but time just zipped past and before I knew it- it was the next day! Am not going to make any more excuses because I suck at it so let’s just go straight into checking out the photographs of the wedding ceremony.

We posted pictures of when we hung out with the bride before the wedding ceremony yesterday – in case you missed it -you can check them out here. It was a really special Valentine’s day post and you all were a super audience- we broke all view records yesterday! We also got featured by lovely Naomi on her blog-Enchanted Dream Weddings which made us feel extra cool!

You can be sure to see a lot of colour at any Indian wedding but more often than not, the colours can make  you wish you had some blinders on to shield you from all the bling and gaudiness! Not this wedding, though. The soft pink tones make you feel like you are in a dream of some sort- the bride and groom blending so perfectly- him with his cream achkan and her with a beautiful pink salwar kameez (which we were happy to note wasn’t 50 kgs heavy !). The guests seemed to have had the same idea (collective unconsciousness,perhaps?) and just added to the gorgeousness !How cool are the splashes of blue and yellow amongst the crowd-and the sea of turbans!

I especially loved that the wedding was at home , in the backyard- so old school !!

{Real Wedding} : Sam & Richie – Part One

Happy is what we are to post this wedding today!Absolutely perfect for Valentine’s Day!

This wedding is special for so many reasons. For one, it is our first REAL wedding being featured here on The Unreal Bride *hoot hoot*. Then, it’s a wedding close to home- we have grown up together- it was pretty surreal Sam was getting married- imagine photographing it! There are a hundred other reasons why it was so special- the bride being absolutely fabulous, looking so gorgeous and  radiant. She was raring to go and get married- the wait was killing her not because she was nervous but because she could NOT wait any longer! Oh, the love!

Before the actual wedding ceremony, we spent some time with Sam and her friends –

Disclaimer: We are not responsible for  any consequences due to the bride’s infectious smile and spunk.

Photobooth : {LOVE} Sam & Richie

‘Super excited’ explains perfectly what we felt  when Jessica asked us to cover her cousins ‘before the wedding’ party! Like the perfect customer, she gave us enough time to plan and figure things out which gave us the opportunity to actually make our FIRST photo booth (so many firsts on the blog these days!) ! It is something April and I have spoken about many  a time- the photo booth is the way to go especially at a party where madness is guaranteed! I had to leave for a work trip so April was left to make the back drop (ribbons were what we decided on).  Little did we know that ,it may look pretty to have a ribbon back drop but it is by no means EASY to make ! First, the cost of ribbons (yes! we take for granted these pieces of pretty string things!They COST!) and then actually putting them together to make the back drop. This is where April gets full marks in resourcefulness (she raided her mums boutique and found tonnes of ribbon there), patience (the ribbons were less than half an inch wide), creativity (weaving together the ribbons) and balance (standing on a stool in the bathroom using the shower curtain rod to weave the ribbon curtain)! I’d have given up about two minutes into the process. Alright, I must stop talking about us and talk about the couple but this being our first photo booth experience, I needed to share it with all of you! Clearly, I am sharing too much!

Onto the fabulous couple- Sam and Richie! Sorry Sam, I can’t use your real name- it just doesn’t feel right when I type it 😀 ! The added bonus of being at this party was of course the fact that we know both the bride and the groom quite well and knew what to look forward to. It was an awesome party- with so many friends and family from all over the world, and well so much…LOVE! I will let the photographs speak for themselves!

The bride and the groom! Can you feel the love?!

The necessities: Blackberry, friends and of course family!

What happens when the bride doesn’t weigh much?


The bride got a ‘special’ dance too which we can’t share with you here,unfortunately! You can use your imagination for that !

Away from the photobooth, people danced,ate and DANCED ! Oh, and continued to work the camera!

The fact that this song played in my head the entire time I was processing the photos should come as no surprise to the bride and her friends! Since it was pretty much the only song I heard while taking the photographs as well!


So, what did you think? Did you like the photographs?

We covered the wedding as well, but for those photos you will have to wait a while!

Oh, and Merry Christmas !!
