India Wedding – Sheelah & Dimitri
India Wedding // I had the pleasure to fly to the wonderful country of India at the end of 2016 to photograph the amazing wedding of Sheelah & Dimitri in Goa with my friends Pablo Beglez & Jon Aleksander Krancan. The entire wedding was planned by the team behind Cherry on Top from Dubai.
India is such an amazing country and I was simply blown away by the culture and the people. If you ever thought about going there, please do it. It is so much bigger and better than I ever imagine. The colors of nearly everything were so rich and intense, the food was unlike anything I have ever eaten and the wedding was simply breathtaking.
The location was wonderful resort on a small hill near Goa, surrounded by the rich wildlife with so many pretty birds and even monkeys, that chased through the trees while we made our way to the top of the hill.
Once we arrive on top, we were blown away by the amount of flowers that nearly decorated the entire location. The first highlight was the first look in the middle of the flowers that perfectly framed Dimitri, while he was waiting for Sheelah.
We then walked over for some first couple shots before everyone got ready for the ceremony. Dimitri literally danced his way to the ceremony and everybody was then waiting for the beautiful bride to arrive.
Followed by a traditional ceremony and some more couple shots, the bride and groom started to get ready for the party in the evening. All their friends and family were enjoying a small marketplace that was especially created for Sheelah & Dimitri, before they both made a big entrance.
Some wonderful speeches by their family members were the emotional highlight of the evening and as Sheelah & Dimitri made their way onto the dance floor, the party started and we danced away all night.
