From the genuine and sentimental to the crazy and fun, what couple doesn’t want these shots on their bridesmaids and groomsmen photo shot list? Riddhi and Ankur had envisioned just this, and a fun day out with their squad was an easy decision thus giving them the idea of a fun-filled pre-wedding photo shoot. The couple decided to have this at The Perfect Location in Delhi. Riddhi shares some highlights from the pre-wedding photo shoot.
“I have known Ankur for the past 10 years and we are tying the knot this October. We did not want a typical pre-wedding photo shoot as we have been together far too long. We wanted more of a fun day out with our common friends. We are all very close so it was an easy decision,” shares Riddhi.
The next challenge was to bring them together on the same day considering their busy schedules. Riddhi shares, “It was a total task getting everyone together as everyone is working and very successful at that. My school friends Pushpanjali and Manisha, my NIFT friend Dirgha, and Tanvi – my very own matchmaker who first introduced me to Ankur 10 years ago was part of this beautiful day. Ankur had his best buddies Daksh and Paul join us at this shoot, as they’ve been childhood friends. I just gave the themes and colors of the outfits to everyone. The balloons, chalkboards, headbands, etc. were all arranged by me. My mom arranged for the cakes from ‘Pink Box’ as a surprise.”
“Mint is the color of the season and has always been my favorite color. Being a designer myself I was pretty sure of what I wanted. We worked on a dreamy look and keep it quite simple but not boring too. So I worked on pleating and 3D sequence flowers for some WOW factor.”
“The Perfect Location is owned by my parents so it was a no-brainer choice for the shoot. Everyone had an amazing time just laughing and going crazy. I was a bundle of emotions – happy, shocked and feeling so special that I have such lovely people by my side.”
“The shoot was really fun and while we were posing, it actually started sinking in that the time is here, we were going to be HUSBAND and WIFE. The entire experience was one of the best memories we are going to take with us as Ankur and I start this new chapter in our lives.”
