Real Weddings: Marathi Wedding With A Punjabi Tadka By Robin Saini Photography

By  | 

In our real weddings section this week, we present a lavish ‘rooftop’, cross-cultural wedding that is documented fabulously by Robin of Robin Saini photography. Here is more about the wedding in Robin’s words:

“’Marathi mulgi’ Manali had seen some of my work online and contacted me regarding shooting her upcoming nuptials with ‘Punjabi munda’ Prashant. When I asked her about the planned date, she said that it was not fixed yet as her fiancé was abroad most of the time, due to work. So I asked her to contact me again when he came down and when she did I realized that there was actually very little time to make the preparations.

On the wedding day, I managed to capture various shots of Manali getting ready. Then there are a few shots of her jewelry pieces which I have taken using some ornate flower vases in the hotel’s lobby.

The wedding itself was a grand affair with over 300 guests. It was held at the Hotel Citrus in Pimpri, Pune. It was also graced by the presence of a topnotch Marathi politician who came in with his security entourage; so naturally there was chaos as guests scrambled to meet him. To add to this confusion, the Baraat came in long before it was expected so there was a lot happening all around and shooting it was slightly overwhelming!

Manali and Prashant had an arranged marriage but the post-wedding photographs show how much in love they are. Without further adieu, here are the pictures. Hope you enjoy them!”
