A grand Abu Dhabi destination wedding that celebrated the love of Nitya and Mohit
In this wedding photography story, Nitya and Mohit married each other in a magnificent Abu Dhabi destination wedding at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, earlier this year. It was a joyous and vibrant celebration of their marriage. Their family and friends made sure that it would be a memorable event for the couple for years to come. Here are some of our favourite moments from their wedding.
Part 1: Pre-Wedding in ITC Grand Bharat
Before we flew to Abu Dhabi for their wedding, we did a short pre-wedding session for the excited couple at ITC Grand Bharat. Their chemistry was so sweet and loving that it was a fun afternoon shooting them in the gorgeous ITC property.
Part 2: Moroccan Night
The wedding celebrations started in Abu Dhabi with an over the top, grand Moroccan night. The couple entered amidst a group of arabic dance performers and that set the tone for the rest of the evening. There were belly dancers, and other performing artists making the after-party a truly vibrant and energetic affair.
It was time for the entire gang to let loose, and they had an after-party that Abu Dhabhi would remember for a while!
Part 3: Pool Party & Sangeet night
The next began with a relaxed pool party. After last night’s party, it was a much-needed rest for the guests so they could recharge for the sangeet night. We managed to get a few quick portraits of the couple before the event began.
The couple made a quirky entry on an oyster-on-wheels with colour bombs and Go Go dancers to add a pop to the event!
The sangeet evening was truly a magical and splendid event. We witnessed some amazing family performances and a grand finale performance by the bride herself! Not to mention, Nitya’s father brought the energy of the sangeet to a whole different level. It was clear he was super excited and happy for his daughter.
This wedding was quite special for us. A few years ago, we were also a part of Sia (Mohit’s sister) and Ashu’s wedding. So we were glad to be a part of the family’s celebrations once again.
Part 4: Haldi
The haldi ceremony was messy, fun and crazy to the core! Nitya and Mohit’s friends and family pulled out all the stops for this one! While Nitya was doused with haldi, kethcup, chutney and whatnot, Mohit was splashed with all kinds of soft drinks!
Part 5: Wedding
As always, we had to rush down for the baraat but not before we captured our groom-to-be all dressed up and ready to go!
When Nitya was getting ready, her dad walked in to put on her bridal set. (Backstory: her dad is a famous jeweller in Hyderabad, so his jewellery has made countless brides stunning on their wedding day.) When it was time for him to dress up his own daughter, it was a super emotional moment for the both of them (watch the video to see what he says!).
Once she was ready, we had a few minutes to make some portraits of the bride.
All in all, we had a lovely time making this destination wedding story for Nitya and Mohit. We wish them a lovely life together!
