(Here is a guest post by our creative photographer and friend Raghunandan from Melanged)
It’s a small world. Ravikiran first contacted me through a friend’s reference. On our second call we learnt that his brother Shashikiran and I were classmates. On our third call we learnt that we live just a road apart. Indeed it is a small world !!
Ravikiran and Padmashree are definitely what an ideal couple should look like. Ravi is more of silent killer types, right dialog delivery at right timing. Padma is the most brightest and chipper bride I have ever met.
There was a formal engagement ceremony on the previous day of the wedding. They exchanged rings.
Checkout the rings. Padma has an “R” embossed on her ring.
Three most busiest people of the wedding.
Have you seen the Don Ravi 😛 ?
Wedding day had arrived . Here is a glimpse of wedding settings.
loved the carving !
Here is the picture of the Kashi Yatra ritual.
Straight from Kashi Yatra Ravi was taken to the mantap (stage) where other rituals followed and finally curtain rose.
Checkout Padma trying to get a sneak a peak of Ravi from her hand fan ;-).
Curtain goes down and I am very sure Ravi had a strategy. He moved back as soon as the curtain went down.
and clearly Ravi was the winner of Jeerige Bella ritual.
The time had arrived for them to get united.
Checkout our chipper Padma’s expression 😀 or should the smiley be 😛
Post wedding. There was a grand reception in Bangalore. Here is a picture of reception settings.
Here are some getting ready shots of both Ravi and Padma .
How could I miss the brothers ? 🙂
Doesn’t Shashi look smart ?
Ending this post with two of my favorite clicks.
Hope you enjoyed viewing the pictures .We had a whale of time capturing you guys. Wishing you both a happy and prosperous life ahead.
