The big, fat Indian wedding is always a grand celebration with no expense spared. It's all about luxury, having a great time with friends and family and love. And while we have seen many of these wedding extravaganzas, we haven't actually seen anything like this before. We're talking a proper regal party and every bit a perfect fairytale.
Shriya + Anindith! Chantilly On assignment with @storiesbyjosephradhik These two get married tomorrow! 😁 And as crazy this wedding has been, it's twice as fun! #makeportraits #love #bride #indianbride #bigfatindianwedding Shot with a @sonyalphain A7r3 Lit with a reflector held by @harshabathija With @sprinkledwords stealing a second shot
Even her pre-wedding function was everything glam and oh-so-gorgeous. It was held at the monumentous Château de Chantilly in Paris and the photos do all the talking. So it's obvious that the wedding will be everything majestic and magnificent.
That royal portrait. Shriya and Anindith, Chantilly 2018. Shot by @josephradhik As wedding photographers, we are used to making extraordinary images in the ordinary, but this was an occasion where everything was extraordinary. From the venue to the styling to the light to @namratasoni's skills. And yeah @shriyabhupal helped a bit too by being so gorgeous 😁! So here it is, a bridal portrait like no other. #makeportraits #love #bride #indianbride #bigfatindianwedding #weddedwonderland #wedphotoinspiration #instalove #instawedding #sonyalphain #sonya9 PS: this frame wouldn't be possible without @pressy6 spotting the blue hour and helping with the light, thanks man! Also with @sprinkledwords, @harshabathija, @rajmohapatra @ronaldsoubam @mohamedjameer shooting away in the background.
And what's a bride without her stunning ensemble?! For her pre-wedding function she wore a red ruffled Giambattista Valli gown. And the designer has put in a lot of thought behind each of her outfits. She said that she wanted to wear a dress that she would "remember forever".
She's choosing to wear her own label for the brunch and will change into an orange Ashi Studio gown later.
"For the soirée, I've picked an Elie Saab gown from his bridal collection that I fell in love with. The base is an off-shoulder full sleeve bodycon gown, with an overlay of a dramatic skirt. I’m styling it in a boho eclectic way to give it a fun Indian touch," she adds. And to get down and party on the dancefloor she will later lose the skirt and be jiving in a gown.
The inspiration for the entire wedding has been delicate fabrics, yeah designer I tell you! "Most of the wedding festivities, including my wedding card, are inspired by the intricacies of Chantilly lace," says the gorgeous bride-to-be.
She even revealed the secrets to being a fit and fab bride. She's been eating healthy and doing her daily workout of kickboxing and functional training. Ooh! We love us a strong gurl!
We wish this regal couple all the happiness and luck for the new chapter in their lives. We're pretty sure the wedding is going to be nothing short of splendid. Can't wait to see the pictures!
