If you are the only girl in a squad of all male besties, then getting married takes on a whole new nuance of bonding and bonhomie. Despite being one of the ‘bros’, the intrinsic sense of protection your squad feels for you is a precious emotion. To-be-bride Hera headed to Bali to relish the last few days of her single life with her crew in tow, and the pictures shot by WeddingSutra Favorite – Weddingrams – are proof of the bond and beauty this gang shares.
The third in a series of tri-bachelors (with three out of out of a gang of nine soon to be hitched), the photoshoot took place in the charming locales of Bali against the backdrop of a traditional Indonesian villa. For her tribe consisting of best men and three bridesmaids, Hera playfully tried to enforce a shoot with all the guys dressed up in robes and dolled up with makeup!
Fortunately for the guys, her attempts were overruled, and the results of the shoot were there for all to see. Hera looked like a gypsy damsel in a delicate ivory dress and flowing curls entwined with yellow blooms, and the red and black theme of her squad against the rural coastal beauty of Bali exuded an essence of old-world romance. The black and white images are high on vintage nostalgia which makes it different from the highly colorized albums out there.
With Hera and her squad of ‘brides men’ all being photographers, the experience of being in front of the camera was especially a novel one for them. Owner of Weddingrams and Hera’s best friend Divyam says, “The Harley Quinn of the gang in true essence! Her shoot celebrates the warmth and happiness that she carries with her that she passes on to
whoever she is with and wherever she goes. And we would like to tell our photographer mate that she is as much a diva before the camera as she is behind it!”
