Juieta & Sandip’s Bengali Wedding in Kolkata
28 Sep ’16
Two Kolkata born Bengali souls with a very different upbringing fell in love in foreign shores. That’s the story of these two lovebirds Juieta and Sandip who fell in love in the US and got married in Kolkata. They booked me a few months before the event after an extended series of emails. They were completely psyched about their wedding plans and didn’t want to leave anything to chance. Photography was one of the most important thing about the wedding and And that showed through their detailed mails. It was a pleasure dealing with such a dedicated couple. They asked the right questions that all couples should ask their chosen wedding photographer, which really showed that they had done their homework. I was impressed!
Family and friends had flown in for the wedding from various parts of the world. It was a lovely mish-mash of various geographies. The wedding was spread across two days in South and Central Kolkata. The bride happened to have awesomely cool friends who completely livened up the wedding with their infectious smiles.
To mark the Kolkataness of this Bengali wedding, the Sangeet on day 1 took place right on a boat restaurant (Floatel) on the Ganga while the wedding venue was one of the oldest clubs in Central Kolkata. It was a fun and jovial wedding with a very enthusiastic bride. It was a welcome change to see a bride who wasn’t going to be the stereotypical quiet and shy bride. Overall it was a great wedding where I met some really cool people. Here’s wishing Juieta and Sandip a great life ahead in Chicago.
I heard that Juieta’s dad passed away just a little time after the wedding. It must have been a extremely traumatic event for the entire family. I was deeply saddened by the news. May his soul rest in peace.
