Namrita and Preetesh’s Traditional Marwari Wedding in Chennai, India

Three months into my full time photography career, who would have thought that I would be hired to photograph a wedding in India? But it was true and I’m still a little in shock at how it all happened.

This is part 1, a traditional Marwari ceremony in Chennai spread out over 2 days. There is no point tarnishing this visual experience with my words of how amazing the trip was, how wonderful the families were to me or how refreshing it was meeting new people with beautiful hearts on the other side of the planet. I’ll just let you try and absorb some of the culture, tradition, colour and ceremony in the next 130 images or so.

Day 1

Day 2

    Hi Lola. I’m sorry but I don’t live in Chennai and was only visiting to photograph the wedding! As such, I can’t help you out with venues but I wish you all the best with it! :)

    Hi there, I’m due to get married in Chennai (May 2014) and you’re photos are exactly what I imagined my wedding day to look like. They are stunning. I wanted to ask if you could recommend any venues? We’re due to have a very small ceremony with aprox 80 people. I would really appreciate your suggestions.
