The Unreal Bride meets The Wedding Filmer

After talking about this for nearly four years, I FINALLY got the chance to work with Vishal of the Wedding Filmer. I’m pretty sure they need no introduction because I have been going on about their videos forever and now they are literally world famous but if you don’t know them yet, you better go take a look ASAP because I am already feeling sorry for your loss!! (Out of breath after that long sentence!)

This month I got to go work with the superbly talented crew from The Wedding Filmer and I am still buzzing from the excitement. I figured I had to share that with all of you (lots who are are fans of theirs as well!) . There is only one way I know of sharing and that is with photos -so here are some of the photos from the few days we spent in Thailand.  I will post the video once the trailer is up but till now you can just imagine how beautiful it will be!

All photos shot on the iphone.

Thing is though, thanks to facebook and all the clutter there, it’s easy to not see the quality stuff . I mean, my timeline is full of all sorts of weird stuff and I have to really DIG for the good stuff. So, I won’t blame you entirely if you haven’t seen any of the videos yet. Let me help you out by posting one here and then will leave you to spend a couple of hours going through all the videos! In true Chandigarh spirit , it only makes sense to post a video shot in Chandigarh! (If you remember -we had set up a photobooth at the same wedding too. Connections connections!)

Excuses, explanations and some media love.

I don’t even want to think about how many readers we have lost over the months we haven’t been blogging. It hurts to think about it.  Though our stats do say we still have a regular flow of readers, I think it’s probably to check if we have posted something new. Shame on us! Two months of no updates! Shocking!!!

There is a valid reason though! Promise!! No lame excuses here- we have a fully valid reason, which once you hear, you will forgive us for being so quiet.

So you know how most wedding blogs are born when a bride needs a place to put down her ideas, organize her thoughts , look for inspiration? The bride keeps blogging post wedding because it just such a fun and addictive thing to do.Keyword here is ‘most’. Unlike most wedding blogs, The Unreal Bride wasn’t born like that. We wanted to tell people what we do (engagement sessions, bridal photography etc etc) and thought a blog would be the best way to do that. One thing led to another and before we knew it, we were blogging full time with no wedding on the near horizon. Merrily being non- bridal -wedding bloggers. Till one day one of us decided it was time to get married.

What planning an unreal wedding should’ve meant- lots of research(read more time spent on Pinterest), more wedding planning related posts, weekly updates , sharing inspiration, discussing outfits and basically a lot more blogging!!!! What planning an unreal wedding actually meant- absolutely no time to do the above, trying to balance work and wedding planning, using the fiancé as a punching bag, becoming a gardener, fighting everyone and everything that came in the way, denial, lots of last minute drama and of course being the complete bridezilla. If this is not a valid reason enough for being AWOL, I don’t know what is.

I won’t lie-it was the.most.stressful.time in my entire life but, here it is- the big BUT – but, it led up to the most amazing, wonderful and memorable moments in my life. So, I guess it was all worth it. Maybe. No, no !! I jest- it was completely worth it. My heart has never been full of so much love and life as it was during those five days. I intend on sharing the planning phases and the decision-making stages with all of you-step by step. Before I do that though, I just wanted to say we are still here! Alive and ready to get back to being regular bloggers! Do I hear a Yay ?!?

Since no blog post is really complete without some photos in it, I am attaching an article published today in TimesLife talking about our love for Photo booths. I have got to say- being featured in a national paper has quite a different high as compared to being featured in a local paper. The phone hasn’t stopped buzzing today with calls and messages from all over the country- Bombay, Lucknow, Ahmedabad, Nagpur are a few examples!!!Got to admit that we are pretty chuffed!  Thank you for the love and we will be back with The Unreal Diaries very soon where you can see where we went right (and wrong) while planning a wedding!

Lucky In Love : Ideas For Incorporating Horseshoes Into Your Wedding by Bridal Musings

I realise it has been quite a while since I last posted but we have been nice and busy ! Wedding season is in full swing and we started it off with a really fun bridal session in Delhi , then a Hawaiian photo booth followed by a two day photo booth at one of Chandigarh’s biggest events/fairs-The Vanity Fair. Today I am in Delhi with some time to catch up with my blogging before I cover a wedding tomorrow night. Yes, we are low on sleep and have loads of work but you won’t here us complaining! The weather is getting better and the days to my beach holiday are coming closer-so I am happy!
Today is Tuesday Shoesday and we have a very special post in store! I am delighted to have Elizabeth ,owner of  Bridal Musings -one of my favourite blogs writing for us today. She suggested it might make an interesting Tuesday Shoesday post and I couldn’t agree more.
I’m not going to jabber any more-let Elizabeth do all the talking now!

Hello Unreal Bride readers, it’s a pleasure to be guest posting here today. 

Kismet kindly wrote an awesome post on Indian Wedding traditions and shared some of her gorgeous wedding photography over on my UK wedding blog Bridal Musings so we thought it’d be fun for me to feature an English wedding tradition here on the Unreal Bride.  

The Lucky Horse Shoe
I used to ride horses growing up so I absolutely adore it when brides and grooms involve their horses in their wedding day. But if having a horse at your wedding sounds a bit too much like hard work {which surely it must be!} why not incorporate horse shoes into your wedding. After all, we’ve come a long way from the cheap, plastic horseshoes often seen swinging from puffy sleeved, big haired brides’ bouquets of the 80s.

Traditionally horse shoes represent good luck, this is believed to stem from Medieval times when blacksmiths were considered to have magical powers {alchemy}. And a ‘lucky in love’ theme is perfect for a rustic, chic wedding. Be it in an intimate, English country barn or on a desert ranch complete with cowboy boots and stetsons. The more worn and rough around the edges the horseshoes are the better for that traditional, rural feel.

Spread the luck and the love by giving your guests horse shoe favours, use them as unique escort cards or even as entertainment with a horseshoe toss! And how adorable is that wooden pair of horseshoe cake toppers?
But for those of you who are not into the whole rustic/country vibe, why not include a subtle nod to the tradition with a delicate horseshoe necklace or garter? I am coveting that charming, woodland horse shoe necklace by one of my favourite British jewelry designers Alex Monroe.
Any other horse and horseshoe fans out there?
Thanks for having me on your beautiful and inspirational corner of the wedding blogosphere, Kismet. I hope you and all your readers are always ‘lucky in love’.

Photo by The Unreal Bride 
Since we are on the topic of horse-shoes, it is a crazy coincidence that our last bridal session was shot at a stud farm! So, I thought it would be kind of cool to post this photo which could serve a double purpose of a sneak peek from the bridal session ! Also, today is this beautiful bride’s mehendi and we wanted to send her a whole lot of love and happiness on this special day!
Happy Tuesday Shoesday everyone!Did you like our special edition for shoesday?
