Shehneela & Shehazad Indore
How adorable is it when couples incorporate elements from their love story into their wedding? With their first enounter being 36,000 feet above ground level, their connections being found through Orkut and Facebook - this couple's story redefined our faith in love and technology. And even though they were from the same religion, different castes - the question of marriage was a little difficult but love pulled them through! Shot brilliantly by Amour Affairs, who captured their fun-filled, happiness-filled, love-filled communion of two in all its beauty!
What was your favorite part of planning the wedding?
More than the planning we enjoyed every moment of the overall experience. Right from getting consent of our parents , to deciding dates , shortlisting venue , getting a pre-wedding shoot , conceptualizing & customizing our wedding invites - Inviting everyone personally , Exploring & ideating our wedding outfits , Pre marriage functions at our respective native , ensuring hospitality for our family & friends of highest order & enjoying every bit from start to end. Though no one thing can be singled out but funniest memory from our wedding was delay due to travelling from Groom’s end which literally meant all 3 functions were conducted back-to-back literally leaving no room for us to take a breather in between!
How was it working with Amour Affairs as your Wedding Photographer?
Working with Taher was a seamless, hassle-free & a smooth experience. He is so humble, grounded yet focused meaning only business. He being around makes you feel as if you are engulfed with one of your family member of your own & not some outsider who you haven’t met before. Our family & friends praised Taher for the amazing person he is & all good work he did in our wedding. Especially his calm composure, patience & ever smiling face were the common praises about him we heard from everybody around us. Tagging Amour Affair or Taher as Vendor would be such an understatement & disrespectful. Amour Affair is like a family to us & Taher more of a brother from another mother with whom bond will only grow fonder.
Advice for Brides-to-be
Do not panic. Its your day. It’s the day you have been waiting for. Your attitude should be come what may ;) I have tried it myself and believe me that really helps. Leave aside all the worries and smile to the fullest because that’s what is going to make you look gorgeous. Make prior bookings for Mehendi, Makeup and pre-bridal to avoid any last minute hush hush. Do not do any kind of dieting. Have plenty of water eat nuts, ghee, maa ke hath ka khana and whatever your favourite dish is.
