Ankit Goel - Photographer - Pros: Wonderful person to work with and the candid pictures were spectacular. His team really got into the action and captured some really fun and unique moments. Ankit was extremely flexible, accommodating, and super easy to work with. I am looking forward to the wedding album! Cons: I felt the coverage fell short and the focus was more on the main stage. Even with a team of 8-10 people, I felt there weren't pictures of certain parts of events and family members. However, when this feedback was discussed with him he really tried to do his best to fix as much as possible. Recommendation – I would definitely recommend Ankit (his work speaks for itself), my only suggestion would be that you discuss coverage and schedule times for bride, groom, and family pictures. And this suggestion goes for every photographer you work with!
Jaibagh Palace - Wedding Venue Pros - massive, beautiful, and clean! Cons - only 60 rooms, so have to split up guests in near-by hotels. Recommendation - make sure you ask them to pay careful attention to clean up of common areas during the events, fumigate the fields before the event, and have staff cleaning up the toilers (ground floor) regularly. They hire extra staff during wedding seasons, so you might not be as impressed when you to scope things out. Make sure you chat with the GM there. Highly recommend this spot for anyone who wants a palace wedding but can't justify splurging on the Marriotts or Fairmonts.
Studio Eventz - Amit & Shubham Pros - Sangeet and Mehndi decorations were great and over the top Cons - Wedding & Reception decorations were NOT at all what was discussed and decided with this vendor - it was a terrible job. Couldn't say the same vendor did the events for day 1 and day 2. I would not recommend anyone to work with this vendor.
Shallu Chandla - MUA Pros: loved her work, she did a great job and was super understanding and patient. Would recommend her for anyone who wants to look natural and amazing. She really spends time to get the tone and feel right. Cons: I found her to be a bit slow, even though she said she would take 2-3 hours it took longer. So definitely factor in time for that and that you might want to take some breaks.
Rahul Mishra - Bride's Wedding Outfit Pros - they are a dream team! Most understanding, patient, and wonderful. Love Rahul's work and his wife Divya's vision to get you the perfect outfit.
