Destination Wedding Photography in Koregaon Park | Pune India

Indian Mehendi and Sanget Photography at 1 Lounge Pune | Tom and Vanita’s Wedding Part 1

As the plane touched down in Mumbai I gripped my camera bag tightly. Not because I’m scared of flying but because I needed to make sure I was one of the first off the plane. I had watched with trepidation at the airport the scores of Indian families heading home for Christmas and they had LOTS of stuff with them. I still had a 3 1/2 hour journey to my final destination in Pune and the first part of a 4-part wedding was due to start in less than 10-hours…I needed to get off the plane quickly and make sure I got some rest!

Vanita had contacted me from India about flying over to photograph their wedding as a destination wedding photographer and it was one of those emails that just jumped off the page at me. I love photographing Indian weddings in London and I knew that a 4-part Indian wedding in India over 3-days was going to be amazing. I was completely blown away by just how amazing it was! Vanita’s sister had co-ordinated the wedding and there were so many amazing touches over the 3-days.

The first part of the wedding took place at the 1 Lounge in Koreagon Park in Pune and this was followed by the Sanget. The Mehendi Ceremony is where the ladies have henna applied to hands, arms and feet as well as lots of colourful bangles and bindis. Legend has it that the darker the henna dries, the more the girl is loved!

Here are a few images from an incredible start to the wedding celebrations. Scroll to the bottom or click here for the slideshow: Mehendi Ceremony Slideshow

I have to say a massive thank you for the beautiful welcome gifts that greeted me at the hotel and further gifts that I recieved before I left…such a nice touch.
