Quite early in my wedding photography career, I got a chance to shoot a wedding in Ahmedabad. Though the city has so many wedding photographers in Ahmedabad. Bridal Portraits are important part of any marriage. This is a portrait just before her nuptials. Geetanjali waiting for the baraat to arrive in her bungalow on the outskirts of Ahmedabad. Bridal portraits for me is the opportunity to bring the personality of the bride in her wedding dress. Bridal trousseau is getting so expensive. Photographer need to capture the essence of color, vibrancy of the dress along with her mood. These are part of the wedding details you need to capture during and after the getting ready session. The job of candid wedding photographer is incomplete without these details.
Geetanjali, who was ready for quite some time was not sure how to kill the waiting time. She was visibly anxious and taking small walks in her room. And then I saw her sitting and waiting. This is one of my favorite shot of the her big day. It tells you the story of the moment – The Anxious Bride.
Lets talk about some wedding trends in Gujarati Ahmedabad Weddings :
Wedding décor trends that Gujaratis love
While the vibrant culture and colour is making foreigners ditch their home countries to get married in India, it is the change in the economic dynamics and the love for fervour that is making many
Indians themselves splurge and have grander weddings in the homeland. And Gujaratis are leading the pack. Gujarati weddings are full of color, vigor and fun. Though there are plenty of wedding
destinations all over the country, Gujarat itself is not short of beautiful locations. There are many cities in and around Ahmedabad that offer the perfect setting for hosting luxury weddings.
The things that make a wedding beautiful, apart from the rituals and happy faces, are décor, planning and photography. Having shot a couple of weddings in Gujarat, I can easily say that the
décor trends there are always completely spot on. Let me share with you the hottest wedding décor trends that are making the Gujarati weddings look even prettier.
Marigold with plenty of fuschia pink
Mehndi décor primarily in Gujarati weddings is driven by the use of marigold. The vibrant yellow in the sunshine makes for such beautiful backdrop for creating stunning photographs. The fuschia
drapes and colourful cushions add to the sunny setup and is the most sought after colour theme in decor. There are many little interesting details like peculiar formations using the marigold flowers, lining the staircases that can make the décor stand out.
Any wedding can be made fun using the right props. Hanging frames, lamps, colourful umbrellas hanging upside down from the drapes, the rajasthani puppets, unique pots with flowers are
interesting additions that I have seen across Gujarat.
Unorthodox use of lights
Use of candles, light strings at unusual places are also among the hot décor trends in Gujarat. They not only create a plethora of lighting hubs but also make the pictures look beautiful. Electric candles in fish bowls, either hanging or placed on the floor, the knotted light strings hanging from props or trees are very much in vogue.So if you are planning your own wedding or it’s your friend who is, make sure you incorporate these elements in your wedding décor to make a Gujarati wedding even more happening.
