Sunandini and Apoorv’s love was based on trust, communication and friendship. The first time they met, they felt a comfort with each other they had never felt before. And the more time they spent together, the more it became clear that they wanted to spend their lives together, talking and enjoying life as partners.
This wedding was even more special as we were also part of Rohan (Sunandini’s brother) and Priyanka’s wedding years ago! This was the second wedding in the family that we were part of and that made it all the more interesting and personal.
Sunandini and Apoorv married each other in an ITC Maurya wedding celebration that lasted for days! Here are a few of our favourite moments from their wedding.
Part 1: Pre-Wedding in Khimsar
Sunandini and Apoorv really really wanted to go to the desert for an epic pre-wedding session. After a lot of research, Khimsar seemed like the perfect place to go. We spent two amazing days exploring this tiny but beautiful hamlet of Khimsar and the blue city of Jodhpur with our couple. The man-made oasis with the little ducks swimming around is definitely worth seeing! If you’ve never been here, it should definitely be one of the places on your bucket list, once the world is safe enough to travel!
As the evening light started to fade, we were treated to this incredible view of our couple in the Khimsar desert.
Part 2: Dhol Night
The wedding celebrations started off with a Dhol night at our bride’s house. It was the perfect way to start what was going to be a fun-filled wedding.
Part 3: Haldi and Chooda
We already knew the haldi ceremony was going to be a wild affair. And so it was! Not only was the bride but every single member of Sunandini’s family was smeared with haldi.
Apoorv’s haldi was no different! The family certainly enjoyed dousing our groom with haldi, water and whatnot!
Part 4: Mehendi
The mehendi event in ITC Maurya was a fun and relaxed afternoon with family and friends. Our couple entered amidst a riot of colours and enjoyed the warm sunny winter afternoon dancing and drinking with friends and family.
The late afternoon light was perfect for some quick portraits.
Part 5: Sangeet
Sangeet events in the Agarwal family are almost Bollywood-esque productions. And we are not complaining! Every single person in the family is a great dancer and since they’re so fun, it doesn’t seem like work at all! The groom side gave equal competition to the bride side with their groovy moves and larger-than-life dance performance. A lot of the time during the course of the evening, we found ourselves forgetting to shoot (oops!) and just enjoying the performances.
Can it be a party without an after-party?!
Part 6: ITC Maurya Wedding
Sunandini looked stunning in a red Rohit Bal lehenga! We took some portraits of our pretty bride with the sun streaming in through the room and later went out to catch the sunset.
Apoorv’s baraat was vibrant, enthusiastic and full of family and friends who couldn’t contain their happiness!
Sunandini walked with the biggest smile on her face towards the love of her life. Their family and friends made the jaimala ceremony more fun and interesting by lifting both of them up on their shoulders. Later the night, the couple took saat phere (seven circumambulations) and made vows to love and respect each other for life surrounded by their loved ones.
