Finally, after shooting hundreds of weddings, our old man tied the knot last October. Yes, it happened. He sobs at times. But we are pretty sure that he is elated and happy the other times. This is his story. And also the bride’s story. I think.
(I get paid by him. So, it is his story. Period !)
Jab they met. (The story)
Once upon a time – not so long ago, in a land not so far away, there was a boy who worked in the ‘Corporate’ world. He was known to be a little shy and usually dug himself into his work. He rarely had any time for friends.
She would come to his desk all the time to chit chat. He didn’t like it that much. But what could he do? He had no other option but to continue with the conversations. Long conversations.
Very soon, he started going to her desk too, with the excuse saying he is heading to the cafeteria. 😛
It didn’t take long before he would offer to drop her midway cause their homes were not very far from each other and coincidentally came in the same route.
Unknowingly, he really enjoyed her company. He would wait for her occasionally, so that they could head back together. She did that as well. The friendship grew.
They became thick friends over the years. Oh, and she would eat all the fancy food that he used to carry to work. I was told to highlight that point. It was a game-changer in their lives apparently.
Best Friends or something more?
Days became months, months became years and they continued to stay best friends at work.
One fine day, she had to leave the city and head back to her “home town”. That’s when she realised that he was the one. She decided to go express herself to him. But he can be an idiot. He just smiled and said “Oh Ok. Thank you.”
It is said that men realise things a little late. He was no different and took ample time to realise it too. But he did. And that was the end of it. Rather, the start of it. And they lived happily ever after.
Oh wait, the wedding happened too. A three-day celebration that started off with a Cocktail party where everyone drank and danced till the sun came up the next morning.
The second day saw them rejuvenate themselves with some traditional functions. And the third and the final day was when they said their vows.
She looked elegant in her South Indian outfit while he looked slightly less elegant than her. (The bride intervened in this part of the story telling)
P.S. Storytelling is a work of fiction. He is not shy one bit. But she is all fun loving and awesome. And the wedding did happen. That’s not fictitious. Haha..
I the ‘other Aditya’ from the WhatKnot.in team was entrusted to be the capture-er of this cute love story.
So here we go. A mighty collection of the entire wedding begins now 🙂

Let the celebrations begin!

This is what it is all about. The moment we’ve been waiting for. The stage was set, the decor was aesthetic, my camera was ready, an occasion only made more special by the presence of a loving family and great friends. A day that’ll be etched in their lives forever.
