Diksha and Rohan
From what we can remember, here is what the welcome card at the wedding read – “We always wanted a destination wedding but then there were so many of you we wanted to share this celebration with that we decided to host a destination wedding in Mumbai itself!”. Can we say, these two were serious when they said they have a lot of friends and all of ‘em take their partying very seriously! In a wedding that oscillated between a three day party and a tex-mex of sindhi-punjabi ceremonies, Diksha and Batra got married at Renissance Powai in 2013. From a pool party to gazal evening to UV party to lake side mehendi to rooftop garden wedding … this one was a poster child of getting-married-only-once-why-sleep-when-we-can-party Did we mention that towards the end we were made to surrender our cameras and dance to gangnam style after (in)appropriate quantities of alcohol!! … goes on to saying how ridiculously amazing hosts these two are.
Here is reliving a decade of their togetherness and the coming together in what is (and will be) one of our all time favourite (wedding)

Duresh and Sherina grew up together in Taipei. Somewhere in between all the picnis and diwali celebrations together, he started to fall for her. Things moved slow, you know, given that these were only high school years!! After multiple approaches by him and equivalent dodging by her things looked like at standstill. Until, one fine Diwali bowl where she finally said she likes him … but just a little !! (filmy!!)
But the cupid would have to wait. Just after it turned out that he’d have to move to Singapore and she would be moving to China. Part deux of this story was packaed with all the classics of a long distance saga … long phone calls, sneaking around the parents, getting caught and doing it all over again
And for the grand finale, a wedding worthy of the awesomeness of this couple. Placed in the stunningly amazing Marriott at Khao Lak, Thailand this three day gala left all the attendees (including us) amazed. From Great Gatsby themed parties to brazilian dancers to perfect-sunset-by-the-beach wedding ceremony … this one had it all!
Duresh and Sherina … cheers to your wonderful story. Lots of love – Knotinfocus

Some really really candid pundit must’ve come up with this ritual … brother of the bride physically pulling the groom’s ear in front of a packed crowd! The intent? Just a friendly warning to take care of his sister post marriage. Whats a traditional ceremony without some drama
Ready, steady .. shoot!!

Here is the select few who get to make it to the make up room of a bride … make up artists, mother, sisters, aunts who need go get a touch up done, the dress guy, make up artist’s assistants, more sisters, friends, oh so many friends and … the humble photographer. So everytime we get a *clean* frame like this with some yummy bokeh … we are allowed to do a happy dance. Yay

This image comes from one of our early Sikh wedding. The fact that the groom insisted on tying his own turban and repeated the process thrice to ensure that he ties the ‘perfect’ dastaar (as the Sikh turban is known) got us intrigued as to what exactly does the turban symbolize in Sikh culture.
Couple of google searches later, here is what we found. The turban is not merely a protective head gear for the Khalsa (sikh warrior) but it is also spiritually connected to the very foundation of the Sikh culture. Earlier only the royalty wore turbans, but the gurus promoted it in the general masses thereby eradicating the caste divide. The turban is also is thus also a symbol of commitment to the Gurus. Truly, the crown jewel of a rich heritage.
