Pooja and Andrew, Ramada, Kerala
A white wedding and then a traditional South Indian one – WeddingNama paid tribute to Pooja and Andrew’s cross-cultural union with their beautiful wedding film.
With serene, idyllic Kerala in the backdrop, a beaming bride and a charming groom demonstrate how the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts. Two cultures come together seamlessly in this evocative wedding film that celebrates Pooja and Andrew’s love story and wedding.
The bride and groom open the film, moving in synchrony as their friends and family watch. The opening montages feature little character references, fun moments, loving embraces and then the scene shifts to a beautiful white wedding.
The ocean is calm and beautiful in the background and the bride is the picture of radiance as she walks down the aisle to her groom. Emotional, so in love, the couple exchange vows as loved ones are moved to tears.
Viewers are then treated to a few vibrant glimpses of the rousing sangeet ceremony where guests from around the world respond to the universal language of music!
Then it’s time for the South Indian nuptials as rituals are introduced to the non-Indian guests. The festivities are truly on their way and there’s even an amusing moment when at the typical mehndi ceremony, the groomsmen all get very a-typical henna tattoos saying #PooDrewSayIDo on their arms!
A picture tells a thousand words and this video that leads to the visual brings home the beauty of this multi-cultural union, the diversity of wedding rituals and the ultimate truth that love is the same no matter who you are or where you’re from…
