It was a chilly December wedding and the most vivid memory of this wedding that I have taken back with me is how absolutely cool the two families were with each other. One couldn’t distinguish his side from hers, the Surat guys from the Bhopal guys, and the idealist in me melted.
They had a very 90s terrace-parties-vibe Mehendi & Sangeet with an enthusiastic family putting up performances. The men made sure the ladies’ glasses were kept refilled while they were getting mehendi drawn, and by the end of the night, it was one fun garba they all danced.
Haldi was a simple event, but with all the important things in place- it was refreshing to see everyone lather haldi generously on the bride’s face and see her enjoying it equally. No diplomacy and worrying about hypothetical yellow faces here!
The wedding took place in Noor-us-Sabah, and unless everyone here was a phenomenal actor, it was one of the most carefree weddings we’ve had the chance to witness. Uncensored belly-laughter could be heard from all around the mandap as the family enjoyed the well timed remarks of the priest.
I wouldn’t want to speak too much about it, but there is a certain childlike excitement in everyone here that is evident from the pictures. I LOVE people who don’t take themselves too seriously. Those are the best kind! 🙂
