Traditional Indian Wedding in Kerala

Destination Weddings

On our last day in Thirandrum, one of our new friends asked us if we wanted to go to a wedding he and his wife had been invited to. Obviously, we jumped at the opportunity! Upon arrival, we were immediately ushered in to the back room to meet the bride before the ceremony, quickly followed by an entourage of at least 6 photographers, videographers, and assistants. Then, they gave us seats on stage during the ceremony (there were probably close to 1000 guests). It was an odd experience, because we felt as though we were treated as the guests of honor, even though we hadn’t even been invited. After including us in the family photos, they treated us to a traditional Kerala wedding feast, served on a banana leaf. The whole experience was absolutely amazing!

Only you guys could manage to pull something off like this... without even trying! These are amazing photos, and I can only imagine what the experience must have been like for you guys. Are you sure you're not going to shoot for National Geographic anytime soon? =)

What a great experience it must of been to shoot a wedding in India, but also be there to experience the wedding itself.
