Pretty in Patiala
Way back in 2013, we were invited to this wonderful home wedding in Dehradun. The bride, Akshaya, was one of the most down-to-earth and simple people I've ever photographed, and her dad had a perfect vision of a simple home wedding in his mind. In the middle of all this was her enthusiastic, super bubbly (and super pretty!) younger sister, Abhaya, who was event-coordinator, bridesmaid, and best friend all rolled into one.
Fast forward one year, and I get a call from Abhaya saying she's getting hitched. Well, I wouldn't miss this for the world! Though Abhaya did not have the opportunity to get hitched at home, she did pick an equally heart-warming venue - the Neemrana Patiala. Pairing this quaint Indian venue with her subtle elegance, Abhaya brought to life a wedding we'll always cherish - not just as a photography team but as guests of the wedding. Oh and all those scenes of emotion at the end of the set? That's 'cuz we made a surprise instafilm and showcased it at the reception, and made Uday, the hunk, break down :D Who says only brides need cry at their wedding? - Joe
