Hitesh & Anisha Ahmedabad : The amount of smiles, cheer and happiness in this super-cute wedding is just contagious! 

The amount of smiles, cheer and happiness in this super-cute wedding is just contagious! 

Anisha and Hitesh met on a fusion dance team at university. Over the first year of college, they became best friends. And 99% of the time best friends can never just stay best friends. 😀 

Mehndi / Sangeet decor was mostly rajastani and very colourful -they had khaatlas set up with mehndi ladies and the entry way had candles and decorative hanging umbrellas.

For the wedding, the mandap and entryway was decorated with strings of white and purple flowers. What we especially loved was the bride's choice of white converse sneakers with a traditional orange and red lehenga-choli!

You can get stunning material for a whole lehenga-choli set in under 6000/- on an average or even as cheap as 3500/- if you want something a little more casual, like a mehndi outfit.

Nishant & Sakshi Delhi : Like all Indian weddings, this one too wowed us with its colourful vibrance and contagious cheer.

Another story, another love, another gorgeous wedding! Just like all Indian weddings, this one too wowed us with its colourful vibrance and contagious cheer. Mehndi day caught our attention with its bright drapes and decor by Vow Deals along with cute umbrella props for the bride and her bridesmaids. What we loved was Sakshi's mehndi design and details!
But most of all, her stunning outfits grabbed eyeballs.

The bride's peachy-pink engagement gown by Christina WT, her happy yellow and red, embroidered mehndi lehenga and of course, the light green, glittering wedding lehenga by Sabyasachi along with sparkling polkis were what stole the show.

This Lokhandwala Jewellery Store Has the Most Gorgeous Bridal Sets at Totally Affordable Prices

Whether you’re a bride, a bridesmaid or a random guest, sorting out a wedding look can be tricky. Every Indian Wedding has 53768 wedding functions; which means getting all those wedding outfits can be quite a task, not to mention burn a black hole in your wallet! But what if we told you that you can get all your wedding jewellery at totally affordable rates with beautiful designs? And you can even get every single stunning piece of bling that your heart desires!
That’s right, imitation jewellery is totally the way to go. Not only do they cut quite a few zeros off your bill but have even more creative, unique jewellery designs.

What’s more is we did all the work and found the perfect store! Starlet in Lokhandwala market, Andheri West sells some of the most gorgeous imitation bridal jewellery sets in town. The store has been around for around 4 years and has new updates in designs and trends every 10 days! And don’t we all hate seeing the same stuff on other people? Especially when it’s wedding-related! Starlet store sure makes us feel like anything we get from there is exclusive and one-of-a-kind.

They have earrings, neckpieces, bangles, rings, entire wedding jewellery sets and every other accessory you can think of!

 

Pricing:

15-20% cheaper than the market! But what we love about their price points is that they seem to have something for all price ranges. For example: a bridal jewellery set can be priced anywhere from 800/- to 8500/- depending on how fancy you want it!

Materials used:

For imitation jewellery, the materials they use seem rather great. Most jewellery is set in copper, coated in micro polish for that stunning shine. For stones, they use American diamonds, cubic zirconium. Some of the products are imported while some are locally available.

Pre-Wedding Shoot in Pushkar, Rajasthan with a Magical Desert Charm

 

 “This is love: to fly towards a secret sky, to cause a hundred veils to fall each moment; First to let go of life and then finally, to take a step without feet.”
How beautifully the infamous Rumi managed to contain a multitude of emotions in a handful of words. And that’s exactly what Varanjot and Ankit’s enchanting pre-wedding shoot in the Pushkar deserts shows is. The clear blue skies, followed by the setting sun amongst warm, golden sand and a calming, serene vibe created quite the mood for the lovebirds as well as the photographer, Avnish Dhoundiya.

What you seek is seeking you” is a quote by Rumi which constantly occupied my mind during this shoot. The sunset and the music filled my heart, photography lifted my energy and the traveling filled my soul. This has undoubtedly been the best shoot ever. A shoot I connected with; a shoot that made me really glad with myself, my life and my work.” – Avnish Dhoundiya

 

 

 

 

 

Rajasthani folk music, desert sand, the golden sunset, camels and a couple who can make poetic description of the word ‘love’ fall into shame. This is what these stunning pictures by Avnish Dhoundhiya are all about! One look at them and you’d be lost in the deserts yourself.

About the photographer

“It was after almost three years of my professional experience as an Interior Visualizer that I decided to leave my settled life to my passion of photography. Today, I feel more content with my work. Not confided in the wall, but a mind free of thoughts and a life full of experiments. I see myself as an artistic storyteller first and foremost. I use my camera to capture the story of your wedding. You’re not going to read about any awards, badges, or “top 10 lists” because what matters is you’re in love with the work that you see and are ready to trust me entirely to do what I do.  I absolutely love to travel the world taking photos of beautiful, unique weddings for amazing people. I’m able to see so much of the world thanks to being a wedding photographer.” – Avnish Doundhiya

Ankur & Niharika Delhi : An amalgamation of love-filled moments, a golden ambience and colourful high notes. 

A wedding that will remain in our hearts forever! Presenting you the beauty of colour co-ordination and warmth of love-marriages! Ankur and Niharika met through a common friend and like every perfect lovestory, they shared beautiful times with a bit of adventure and crazy days together!

We loved the airy, cheerful theme of their pre-wedding shoot in Aravali hills. Photographer Divishth Kakkar managed to artfully capture a unique angle to each shot which was a task in itself among an expanse of similar-looking hills. 

The wedding that took place in Kundan Farms, Delhi was an amalgamation of love-filled moments, a golden ambience and colourful high notes. 
What to look out for: The vibrant and fun mehndi decor, all the bridesmaids stunning outfits and of course, our adorable bride!
