Giveaway Win a seat at The Wedding Filmer’s Workshop!!!

It’s the weekend! This could mean one of two things: time to sit back and chill out and/or sit on the edge of your seat to see if you are going to be the lucky winner of the one seat we have going for the Wedding Filmer’s workshop!! Which one is it going to be ???

I don’t think there is any need to introduce the Wedding Filmer because if there is-then you shouldn’t be here. Many moons ago when we started the Unreal Bride, we struggled to find a good Indian wedding cinematographer- what a challenge it was! Trust me, there was NO ONE. Then,one fine day- a video by the Wedding Filmer popped up on my twitter feed or somewhere and the rest, as they say, is history.

The Wedding Filmer and his crew have organised their very first workshop in Delhi this Monday. And we got a pass (or maybe two) worth INR 4,500/- to  give-away on our blog to all you  aspiring photographers and videographers for free!!!

So what do you have to do? It’s pretty simple! Workshop1

  • Take this image (the one above this line) and post it on your facebook page- tagging both the Unreal Bride and The Wedding Filmer in it.
  • Go take a wander around The Wedding Filmer’s work and tell us which is your favourite video in the comment section below. Extra points if you tell us why you want to be at that workshop SO BAD.

That’s all you have to do! How easy is that? Remember you have to leave your comment in the section below because that is what counts as an entry. You have till tomorrow afternoon (this competition is closed) to enter this contest so don’t waste any time. Good luck!!! Delhi3-2

 

Good luck to all of you! 🙂

GUESS WHAT? We actually have TWO passes to give away! Surprise! Surprise….So who are these two? The lucky winners of this competition after a very fair selection of chits ( normally we use randompicker.com like in our previous giveaways but because of the low number of participants we used the chit-system 😛 )…anyway where was I? yes- the winners…. They are- Abhishek Bali and Shumaila! The last and the first entrants to have entered ! Congratulations guys!! Keep us posted on the wonderful stuff you learn at the workshop .
TWWP.S. ‘Tis the season for workshops and this is only the first one… I will be teaching at a Wedding Workshop in October (I can hardly believe it!!) but I will be in great company- so if you are a photographer who wants to wander in to the world of wedding photography- you should really take a look at what is going to be happening at The Destination Wedding Workshop here and here.

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!

Guestpost Bon Anniversaire Ketchup!

I just saw a notification from WordPress telling me we registered this blog three years ago. THREE YEARS! Could the Unreal Bride possibly be so many years old?  WOW! This calls for a celebration and a plan. Ironically, I came to write a post about a birthday celebration but not our own! This can only mean one thing- a combined birthday party!!!! Who is going to be our birthday buddy , you ask? Well none other than our favourite bag people (I say that in the nicest way possiple)- Ketchup! You know them well from our blog- we have done some of our favourite shoots with their products, had insane giveaways and have become great friends since then! If you know the Unreal Bride, you know Ketchup!!

Ketchup celebrated their 2nd birthday last month and to celebrate -they took a trip to gorgeous Paris. Anyone who visits Paris is sure to come back oozing with inspiration. So as a way to celebrate their birthday they wrote a guest post for us on Paris annnnd if you read to the bottom of the post, you might find a pleasant surprise waiting for you!

5 things about Paris (pronounced Fr. paˈri), that we L-O-V-E !

paris

Très chic:

Paris is the fashion capital of the world. The french, both men and women, don’t just love fashion, they understand the true essence of fashion and they sure as hell know how to rock some seriously hot haute couture – respect!

C’est si bon:

One simply can not get enough of the breads, the cheeses, the steaks, the wines, the mussels, the brews, the desserts – yes the desserts : when we say french desserts, we mean lots of delicious calories such as macaroons, mille-feuilles, profiteroles, eclairs,tarte tatins and crème brûlées!

nomnom

Talking of which… we could kill for a fresh french vanilla custard creme brûlée in a super cute cafe in Paris RIGHT NOW!

Bon appetit!

Très magnifique:

French architecture took our breath away .. The gardens, the ever-so-beautiful river Siene, the 18th century buildings, le tour d’eiffel, the champs-elysees, the museums. What’s not to love? Infact we even loved the windows, the open spaces, the boulevards and the sidewalks.

architecture

Je ne veux pas travailler:

The weather in Paris all through our birthday month was spectacular, the cool breeze and the slight drizzle along with the smell of freshly heated chestnuts made our walks in the pristine gardens along the river Siene simply surreal.

Le temps de l’amour :

The city of Paris is like a classic timeless black and white romantic movie!

2013-08-07_0006

Paris makes one want to fall in love, Paris makes one want to kiss…. and then keep kissing … and at Ketchup we love kissing .

muaaaaaaaaaaaaah

Paris je t’aime!

Creating a Flutter with another Giveaway 

Once upon a time, in wedding land; all things weddings from the invitation cards, to outfits, to decor  fit a mould. It was simply because the inspiration out there was limited- a single wedding magazine, a few ads here and there, one specific wedding invitation shop every one went to … you get the point. Then once upon a time became a thing meant only for fairytales. Enter the phase of wedding blogs, pinterest , oodles of wedding magazines, inspiration and ideas coming out of our ears and noses ,but best of all are the independent and young entrepreneurs entering the industry. People who understand what a bride of today needs (and wants), who do things differently and so beautifully! Wedding planners, photographers, make up artists, invitation designers, stylists all have a different meaning in todays wedding day and age. They mean something if not a lot of what your wedding will be like!

That brings me to today’s post .We are having yet another giveaway and this time we are collaborating with the totally cool girls from Create-A-Flutter. They are the super talented duo who make the most beautiful wedding invitation suites and other yummy stationery. We have spoken about them endlessly here  but we hadn’t really met them till a few weeks ago! Together, we came up with so many ideas and can’t wait to make them a reality.To start with ,we decided to have a giveaway when we hit 5000 likes on facebook. That happened when we weren’t looking so this is a slightly delayed post !!! Expect the unexpected.

It really isn’t about the number of followers of fans we have (though we totally love it when we get more and more people who like our page!) , it’s about all of you who enjoy what we do and say and the endless support we get. I can’t count the number of times someone has come to me at the most unexpected place and said,’Are you the Unreal Bride? We LOVE your page!’ . It leaves me speechless.A giveaway is the only way I know how to thank you all for reading our blog, hiring us for all the projects we have been lucky to be a part of and in general just to say we totally love you guys !

Check out some of Create A flutters work from cute invitations, greeting cards, baby announcements,baby shower invitations and wedding invitations-they do it all!!!Design 2 DSC_0064

Who won Ketchup’s 1st birthday giveaway??

I have to do that irritating thing where before announcing the  winner, there is either a commercial break or a long speech!

I wish everyone could win something but alas, life is cruel! Thank you for participating and showing so much love not only to us but to Ketchup as well!
