Wedding today has become synonymous with extravagance and grandeur. A simple ceremony conducted in an apartment almost seems like a festival. I have a special place in my heart for at-home weddings. However, Affrin and Satyajit got married in February and had a traditional intimate home wedding.
When it comes to wedding celebrations, many couples agree that size matters. Fewer people can mean a more personal celebration. There’s more time for the bride and groom to spend with their guests, the group gets to know one another, and everyone contributes to the event in his or her way. Intimate celebrations, it seems, have certain advantages.
An intimate wedding gives you the chance to go all out. Guests can stay at the wedding venue which will make the function more lively. Keeping things small means that the extra details, like providing handcrafted gifts, loaded chocolate baskets and finger-licking feasts for your guests, are more accessible.
This might be the best part of having an intimate wedding: With fewer people on the scene, it’s easy to get everyone into the act somehow. Depending on how small the event will be, you can have everyone read a line of a prayer or a special reading at the ceremony, have them stand and encircle you as you exchange your vows, seat them at one big table at the wedding reception, or have everyone attend the rehearsal dinner.
This wedding coverage was very special for me & my team as we got to document an elaborate rituals of the Islam wedding. This wedding went through several events starting from mehandi, haldi,mehr, followed by Nikah, recitation of Fatiah and then the grand feast to end with which is popularly termed as Walima.
Let us now enjoy a handful of frames captured by Charcoal & Vermillion which will feel your heart and mind with loads of happiness and joy.
