What a Kerala wedding ceremony. I am speechless. Mumbai is an incredible city and photographing a wedding here was on my wish list for quite a long time. I photographed a couple of weddings in Kerala before and loved every minute of the indian experience. So i was beyond excited when Aishwarya got in touch and asked me to photograph her Kerala wedding ceremony in Mumbai. What an honor. 6 months later, i was sitting on a plane to India.

The lavish 3 day wedding at the Leela & the Taj Mahal Palace left everyone in awe, including myself. The collection of images show the couples’ intimate ‘Kerala wedding ceremony’ in the Leela hotel estate. Lit by candles, light installations and butter lamps the whole ceremony had a beautiful mood and ambience. Every detail was perfect. I mean, look at this golden wedding sari! The details on her dress were just incredibly beautiful. Although these low light situations at Keralan ceremonies are a little challenge, i love photographing them. I think an evening ceremony brings a whole new mood to a wedding ceremony. It is simply magical!

The Team from Motwane did an incredible job in making this wedding a dream come true.

Nandita & Brian | Kerala Wedding | Cochin India

We met in San Francisco through a common friend and after a few months Brice joined me in NY. We got engaged 5 years later, on holiday in the Florida Keys. We got married a year later.

 

We chose Kerala, India, Nandita’s birthplace. Our wedding took place at sunset under the coconut trees, at ‘Chittoor Kottaram’ – a heritage property. We were very lucky as it was the first time a wedding had been held there. Nandita wanted my family to experience a Kerala wedding in its purest form. We used jasmine flowers, banana leaves and hanging oil lamps that are native to Kerala and our ceremony was performed by Nandita’s uncle as per a centuries old tradition. The bridal party consisted of Nandita’s cousins and aunts – all dressed in shades of pink. The bridal saree was in ivory and gold with a flash of pink. Ivory and Gold are the traditional colors of Kerala sarees, and we added a pink band at the end to add a touch of color.

 The ceremony was quite special for us, and Nandita’s grandfather made an incredibly touching speech.

 

About working with Chris in one sentence.

Chris was amazing. We completely appreciated her dedication to capturing the joy and beauty of our wedding.
