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
Viral and Aanchal,
Not every love story needs to be the same. Every once in a while we come across a non childhood-sweethearts-proposes-on-a-uber-romantic-date love story that turns out to be a superb wedding to shoot and an awesome couple to shoot with. Viral and Anchal’s was technically an arranged marriage but 15 minutes into a pre-wed shoot with them and it seemed more of a ‘destined’ marriage. Their smiles were genuine and so was their new found love. The wedding that followed carried the typical gujju-friend-circle-takes-over-the-wedding euphoria. At one stage during the pheras, the friends and family decided to take the whole ‘flower-shower’ business to the next level and by the end of the epic flower varsha (see it in the pics to believe it), both of them were hiding under a cloth to cover themselves.
Whoever came up with the term ‘arranged’ marriage
Anand and Garima
Destiny. In a strange play of things, it brings people together. Anand and Garima’s marriage was a play of destiny in more than one way. First of course was the couple themselves. He met her through a common friend seven years ago. At that stage, none of them were looking for a long distance relationship but decided to give it a shot. They managed to keep the love alive, between cities, between jobs and at one stage, even half way across the globe at one time! What looked like an impossible feat to manage at one time eventually just fell into place as if it was destined to be! A winter wedding set against the backdrop of the gorgeous pink city Jaipur. Three days of melange of Rajasthani hospitality with Punjabi zestiness. All coming together at a balmy evening at The Raj Palace.
Secondly, in a way this was where the seeds for Knotinfocus were sown. Anand and I kept in touch after the wedding. We left our jobs and started our photography ventures in a week’s time of each other and eventually decided to merge to form Knotinfocus.
