Meet Carishma & Gaurav
From The Bride:
I had always envisioned an intimate beach wedding with 100 people held at a hill-top in Kerala overlooking the sea and the backwaters. I was thrilled that I found a location and venue that was far greater than I could have imagined. We wanted to create memories that lasted a lifetime for our guests as it was the first time many of them had been to Kerala, and even India, so we chose to create a different vibe for each of our 5 functions.
Taj Green Cove Resort & Spa in Kerala is a stunning picturesque setting with only 54 rooms, but with large sprawling lawns and small water features throughout the property to give off a Balinese feel in the lap of nature. Each function was held on a different lawn, but all venues had views of the sea and lagoon. If heaven did exist, this would would surely be it. The service and standard of the Taj brand was faultless as expected with the Brand. Taj surpassed our exceptions with the food, especially the traditional Sadhya lunch served on a banana leaf our guests had after the wedding ceremony.
Pooja Khurana and Archana Rautela are legends in their own right. Having only had a short video call with Pooja before meeting her at the venue made me nervous, however she listened to my likes, dislikes and gave me a different high quality look for all of my functions. Both were fun and totally put me at ease amongst the hectic schedule. During the wedding ceremony, the wind blew the sindhoor on to my face. Pooja came down to the venue as soon as she could with her makeup kit to fix the day and ensure the ceremony could go on with me feeling and looking my guest. Both have become friends for life and I'm very excited I got my PK bride moment with Pooja and Archana.
I booked Neha as an add-on to my main photography team (Wedding Cinemas). I booked Neha solely based on the quality of her work on Instagram and her professionalism during the booking process. Neha was determined to get the best shots whilst ensuring I was still within my comfort zone. Towards the end of the day, I really enjoyed shooting with her and wish i'd had more time to create fun and unique shots. I have some of the best photos I have ever seen of myself taken by Neha. She is exceptionally talented.
We spent 11 months working with Unicorn Wedding Planners from the UK. The team made our dreams come to reality and no job was too big for them. They were ready to deal with any hurdle they faced without compromising on the quality of the events.
