Kushagra and Mousami, Wedding. Feb 2018, Bhopal

Almost a month after their pre wedding photography shoot was their big day. It was a college reunion for all of us, Kushagra's wedding was the first one out of our college gang.Bhopal was my home but more than that it brought back memories of our college trips!

This wedding was a tough one because I held the camera in the attempt to make best of the candid memories but at the same time I wanted to make fun of Kushagra during all ceremonies or dance in his baraat.

Day 1 was started with Ganpati Poojan and mandap poojan with the Senior Kasbi's dancing to the dhols. I was overwhelmed seeing Kushagra's grandparents witnessing his wedding, their eyes were gleaming with happiness. In the evening was the sangeet ceremony which reminded all of us of the famous Sooraj Barjatya movie "Hum Saath Saath Hain". Everyone in the Kasbi family danced from senior most Daadi to the youngest generation of niece and nephews.

Day 2 was the panigrahan sanskar which is considered to be the main ceremony in hindu weddings. But there was a twist here, the pheras were supposed to happen after the dusk so they were scheduled for 1 am in the night. Except Kushagra and Mosuami rest everyone was happy as they got the chance to dance twice in baraat. 

Day 3 was technically the day of pheras after which Mousami became Kasbi!It was so much fun watching your friend take the vows and even more when you are capturing these memories for him! I can see that K+M are having a great time since they got married and I hope and pray they have each others back always!
