NIHA & AFFAN: CONTEMPORARY WEDDING CEREMONY IN CHENNAI

I was massively excited to take pictures for Niha & Affan. This was going to be my first time in Chennai and more-so my first time shooting a Muslim wedding. The couple chose to have a civil ceremony with elaborate Mehendi and get-together for family and friends.

Niha is an Art Therapist and it was wonderful conversing with her about art and aesthetics and how it is related to our Psychology.

Niha's mehendi was at her home and we also got some time to take a few portraits of her and the couple.

And the mehendi party was at Taj Connemara, Raintree Garden. It was Niha who took the matters in her hand when it came to decor and she excelled as the venue looked absolutely gorgeous, a photographers delight !

We had mid-January showers for a bit but instead of making the whole event gloomy, it added a beautiful freshness as the main theme of the decor was nature itself !

Beautiful details from the decor !

It was not just the decor but Niha was an integral part of designing her wedding outfit as well. The dress was one of its kind and incidentally happened to be in my favourite colour ! : )
 I love when the couples take care of detailing on their own or are at least a part of the whole process. It adds a very personal touch and makes it all the more unique !

The couple hosted a get-together for close friends at The Apartment, Pak Hyatt after the civil ceremony.

Niha, Affan and their families are very private but graciously agreed for me to showcase a few pictures for my blog.  I thank their families for having me over!

Wishing the couple happy togetherness and love !
