Wedding At Jagmandir Udaipur 13

Madhu & Mirek

A dream wedding at the lake palace in Udaipur is really something that will make almost anyone rub his eyes in disbelief, especially if this person has never been to India before. The winter months in Udaipur are warm and sunny, and there are very few places in India that offer such an amazing experience for […]

Neemrana Wedding 03a

Sonejuhi & Aaron

Neemrana fort is probably one of the first locations that comes to mind when planning a palace wedding in India. It is indeed an ideal location for a grand ceremony, and a wedding photographer’s heaven. I’ve been super busy in the last month and haven’t posted in a long time, so a good way to […]

Varshini and Alex, or as everyone calls him; Mithun, had a Syrian Christian wedding in Coimbatore, not far […]

Madurai Wedding 121

Dhilip & Nalini

A south Indian wedding at the holy city of Madurai, Tamil Nadu, is indeed a unique experience. Madurai is the home of the historic Hindu temple Meenakshi Sundareswarar Temple or Meenakshi Amman Temple. I am not really a ‘temple’ person, but I must admit that this temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva (in the form of Sundareswarar or Beautiful Lord) and his consort, Goddess Parvati (in the form of Meenakshi) is […]

When I began my journey with wedding photography in India it was to become a book exploring the various traditions of Indian weddings. Traveling the length and breadth of India for the book, I was searching out differences and similarities in Indian wedding traditions, while trying to find a single theme that could explain the […]
