Benny & Cathy ~ Couple Shoot

Last June I had the pleasure of covering the wedding of Singer Benny Dayal and model-actress Catherine Thangam in Bangalore. Benny Dayal is most known for his famous song Badtameez Dil (from the movie with Ranbir Kapoor & Deepika Padukone), and could have had a ‘star attitude’ if he wanted to. I remember I was pleasantly surprised […]

Dina & Carl

I met Dina and Carl a few months ago when they came to visit and finalise the arrangements for their Goa beach wedding at the Taj Exotica resort in south Goa. I love these weddings in Goa, and the ‘susegad‘ state of mind that is so associated with this state; a relaxed, laid-back attitude towards life […]

Raahil & Pia (Part 2)

Last post was all about the first part of Raahil & Pia’s stunning destination wedding in Goa; the Champaign lunch at the forest, the Teeka and engagement on the beach, and the after party. It is now the time for part two, and the finale of the wedding day which started with the ‘Aloha’ Haldi lunch at the ‘Dunes’, the […]

Raahil & Pia (Part 1)

The season is back in Goa and the weather is great again. Time for the first destination wedding of the season, and this one is one of those weddings that one posts is not enough to cover. Planning a destination wedding in Goa could go both ways. You might opt for a simple beach party, or […]

Sarah & Vivek

Being based in Goa it is a bit surprising that I actually do not get to cover a destination wedding in Goa all that often. However, the ones I do get to attend usually turn out to be quite fantastic. So was the case with Vivek and Sarah’s wedding at the Park Hyatt. It was actually two weddings, a […]

Clayton & Ann

If you are planing a church wedding in Goa there are quite a few places to hold the ceremony. There is a small chapel at the top of a hill which remains locked most of the time. Nevertheless, it is worth coming up here for a spectacular view of the Salcette countryside in general and the town of […]

Tulsi Vivah

Some Indian wedding traditions can be very strange to an outsider. I have been here for a while and have experienced some of them but there is always a new experience. I have heard of the marriage of the Tulsi plant in Goa but this is the first time I actually made the time to […]

Linda & Jöerg

Linda and Jöerg (pronounced like York) are both graphic designers based in Berlin and nothing about their wedding in Goa was ordinary in the way we might imagine it. When I came to meet them on the morning of the wedding the first thing that Jöerg had asked was if I knew of a place to […]

Udit & Shivani

There are really only two kinds of weddings that happen in Goa: a traditional Christian church wedding or destination weddings. The first type of wedding, as beautiful as it can be, would take place in one of the many beautiful churches or chapels and will very rarely take place on the beach. I guess the people that live […]

Analisa & Jaydev

When one thinks of a wedding in Goa it is very likely that the first thing that comes to mind would be a beach wedding somewhere under the coconut trees, and while many people do come to Goa for a destination wedding on the beach, some people actually live in Goa and don’t need to […]

Kevin & Jeannine

It was not what you would call a beach wedding in Goa, but we did make it to the beach of course! Right after the church wedding – which was my first Roman Catholic wedding, believe it or not – and before the reception at the Taj Exotica in south Goa. Jeannine wanted pictures on the […]
