Destination wedding at The Leela Palace, Udaipur

Gauri & Nitin’s wedding at the Leela Palace at Udaipur was a mix of work and pleasure. Udaipur is one of my favourite cities in India. From the very low priced hotels to the grandest of the lot there is always a gorgeous view of the Lake Pichola. The colorful narrow lanes to the grand entrance of the City Palace is all a perfect balance to keep going back. The wedding ceremony was all super grand with Blue Labels flowing by the dozen.PS_Gauri_Nitin-12 PS_Gauri_Nitin-9

Mumbai Diaries: Malika & Karim

Both Malika & her groom Karim had a fantastic wedding at the grand Taj Mahal Hotel terrace followed by reception at the Crystal Ballroom. My favorite part was the Mehendi ceremony at a private villa in Alibaug where the guests partied,  relaxed and had a gala time before the big day. Here are a few pictures.

A Muslim wedding in London

While a wedding in London sounds all glitzy and glamorous this wasn’t a typical London wedding we are talking about. A small quiet Muslim family wedding in the suburbs of London. Farah’s requirements were very specific and the end results of her wedding were gorgeous pictures of her and Rizwan at the City Hall. Loved shooting her getting ready pictures but i only wish she had smiled more. Maybe I should have directed more?

A pre-wedding shoot in Dubai

My first trip to the UAE was great fun. Reminded me of The Strip at Las Vegas with all the interesting architecture. Everything was super fancy. Stayed with my sister at her service apartment in Al Murooj Rotana. The hotel’s Double Decker pub was a family favorite reminding me of our life in London. The trip also included a pre-wedding shoot for a very special couple who are getting married in Goa in December. Shruti lives in Dubai and Veo works in Abu Dhabi. We shot at the beautiful Jumeriah beach and at a stable. Here are some moments
