Allie & Floris

Udaipur is quite possibly the most romantic city in India. I come to the ‘Venice of Rajasthan’ a few times a year and it always manages to surprise me and look different than it did before. Different but always stunning. There is something about this city on the lake that is just so perfect as a destination […]

Dawoodi Bhora Wedding In Mumbai 20120609 10

Dawoodi Bhora Muslim Mass Wedding in Mumbai

When I started working on my book on Indian weddings I had a very thin knowledge, if at all, about Indian wedding traditions. There was a notion of an idea but I could not have even imagined where this journey would take me. One of the most surprising things that I learned about Indian weddings […]

Buddhist Wedding In Ladakh 02

Tashi & Angmo

Of all the Indian wedding traditions I have covered in the last few years, the Buddhist wedding in Ladakh was definitely one of the most interesting ones, and is featured in my book ‘Behind The Indian Veil – A Journey Through Weddings in India’. Ladakh weddings are not the regular Indian weddings the way many of us […]

Nandini & Michael

I have already covered a Kerala backwater wedding before. It is definitely one of my favourite locations for a destination wedding so I was not so sad (!) when Nandini and Michael got in touch with me earlier last year to cover their upcoming wedding at Kumarakom Lake Resort.  I love the food in Kerala, the palm trees […]

Indian Wedding Photographer 17

Sapna & Rishi

A wedding at the Leela palace Udaipur is always guaranteed to be a stunning experience. If there is one city in India that is truely romantic it is Udaipur and no matter how many weddings I attend in this city on the lakes, I always manage to see it differently and be amazed again. It […]

Khilna & Rush

Khilna and Rush actually traveled from South Africa to have their three-day Indian wedding in Kenya on Diani beach, south of Mombasa. It was the beginning of the rainy season and the view towards the beach from Mzima house, where the wedding was to take place, were simply stunning. White sand and blue turquoise water works […]

Taran & Samit – The Finale

Some time back I posted the first part of this out-of-this-world destination wedding in Udaipur and although it’s been a long time (been traveling, shooting, over my head with other projects) I finally find the time to post the second and final part. The last day of these four day celebration started at the Oberoi Udaivilas, […]

Regal Wedding In Udaipur 01

Taran & Samit – Part 1/2

I have already attended and photographed quite a few destination weddings in Udaipur and have even joked more than once that I should consider taking a place there, but nothing was as grand and stunning as Samit and Taran’s four-day destination wedding festival, no less, in this city of lakes. I have been to the Oberoi […]

Devi Garh 22

Geeta & Oliver

Geeta and Oliver met almost ten years ago when both families went on a separate vacation to the Maldives. This love story of two families of such different origines went through Kanuhura, New York, Barcelona, St. Moritz, Basel, and Leeds to mention just a few. They finally got married at the fort palace of Devi Garh, some […]

Destination Wedding Photographer Goa 06

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 […]

Beach Wedding In Goa 101210 SB20705

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 […]

Neerana Fort Wedding 10

Anu & Fergus

I have already witnessed and documented more than one wedding at Neemrana fort but this one was surely different. The backdrop was indeed a fort palace in India but at times it felt like we were all at the races or on vacation in Balmorel. It was the very first time I saw a groom […]

Wedding At The Leela Palace Udaipur 09

Pooja & Nikhil

The Leela Palace hotel was the stunning backdrop for Nikhil and Pooja’s wedding in Udaipur. It was a small and intimate family affair but nonetheless amazingly beautiful. For such a small wedding I was not supposed to have a problem making a tight selection of images for the blog but even after selecting only thirty […]

Taru & Michael

I have just returned from a wedding at Neemrana Fort Palace but it is not this one. Taru and Michael must be thinking by now that I have not posted the pictures from their wedding because I don’t like them or something. Well guys, this is not the case. As usual I guess, I am […]

Jaipur Samode palace wedding

Aditi & Aditya

Adits and Aditya’s wedding in Jaipur was quite a spectacle and the venues were most probably the most beautifully decorated I have ever seen. When we arrived for the Mehendi event at the Jai Mahal Palace on the first morning, it really felt like coming to a photographer’s Disneyland. The palace garden was beautifully decorated, the […]

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 […]

Udaipur Wedding At Fateh Garh 17

Beth & Prachish

I did my homework Before heading out to Fateh Garh for Beth and Prachish’s wedding. I got on the website and looked at images of other destination weddings at this incredible heritage fort  in Udaipur, so that I know what to expect, yet I was totally unprepared. I thought I would find a lavish set-up […]

A Destination Wedding in the Kerala Backwater

Planning a destination wedding in Kerala might seem like a huge task when you live on the other side of the world, but when you are finally there with your best friends and closest family it is worth the world. Nisha and Neil had a destination wedding in the backwaters of Kerala at the incredible […]

Kerala Syrian Christian Wedding 20100208 02

Mathew & Shilpa

What is a Syrian Christian wedding in Kerala, and why is it unique? A few months ago I photographed a wedding in south India and wrote a post about it, explaining who the Kerala Christians are, and a bit about the wedding traditions of this culture. Mathew and Shilpa, who got married in Trivandrum a […]
