Sophia & Saajid Mumbai

Breathtaking Muslim Wedding with an Exceptional Pre-Wedding Photoshoot
February 2016

The Story

“There are some couples who bring along their own drama, and since it is their own and very real, it looks immensely endearing in pictures instead of vain and shallow. Because that is how they are, hiding it would actually be a lie. This is Saajid and Sophia, creating such pictures at their shoot which I alone would never have been able to pull off.” Says the proficient Richa Kashelkar, Sophia and Sajid’s wedding photographer.

And we couldn’t agree more! Both Sajid and Sophia were the personification of elegance and each photograph captured by Richa Kashelkar proved that. Whether it was their pre-wedding photoshoot held outside the Central Library at fort, where the stunning bride wore a sheath white wedding gown with a beautiful lace veil over her head while the groom looked like royalty in an ink blue sherwani. They also went all out ethnic for the other part of their pre-wedding shoot with Sophia in a pink-purple lehenga and her other half in a gold tinted sherwani that perfectly complemented her.

While we were already in awe of the amazing pre-wedding photoshoot, their exceptional indoor reception left us enthralled. Each aspect of their reception was so aesthetically beautiful, right from the three-tier gold and white cake, the brides forest green and gold bodycon gown and the peacock themed bridesmaid sarees in hues of navy blue, sky blue and gold. Sajid and his boys weren’t too far behind on the style factor either. Dressed in sharp black tuxedos with a peacock feather for a corsage – brilliant DIY detail!

What to look out for as you scroll through this album – the stunning photos of the bride as she got ready with her girls, the minimal yet elegant décor and the damask patterned gold and green wedding invite.
