Neda Weds Sanjit- A cross cultural wedding

wedding photography

When Neda and Sanjit’s cross-cultural wedding photography assignment landed in our inboxes, we were confused, amazed and mesmerized at the beauty of this celebration! This couple’s whose love wasn’t subject to religion or caste decided to celebrate this cross-cultural wedding in three distinct ways. They first had a Gaye Holud, followed by a Bengali wedding ending the celebrations with a European themed reception. The team at Wedding Photo Creators shot this crazy-fun wedding brilliantly. Photographing and filming those candid moments, those secret laughs and so much more perfectly! Scroll on to see how Neda and Sanjit nailed a special kind of cross-cultural wedding occasions brilliantly.

 

When the bride and groom come from different cultures or different parts of the world, the Big Fat Indian Wedding is being filled with unexpected surprises.

Neda, 30, a project manager for an international oil and gas conglomerate, is a Persian lady. Sanjit, 35, an entrepreneur based in Dubai, is Bengali. The two met at Dubai, during a conference.

Both sets of parents were perfectly okay with the idea, except for one thing: What kind of wedding would a Persian lady and Indian man have? Both families were enthusiastic about participating in all the rituals for both the weddings. The fun of mixing two cultures has continued even after the wedding. The thing about dreams is that you need to work towards making them a reality.

Sanjit’s ancestral house is in Mumbai Shivaji Park and Neda is from Tehran. Both places are not only different demographically, but different in psychographic and all other aspects. But Neda’s family accepted all the loudness of  Indian cultures and the wedding was performed in a typical Bengali way which was very difficult from other weddings in Mumbai.

In the next blogs, we will discuss the rituals performed in those days. Now just scroll down to see some amazing pictures of this grand event.

“Wedding is about the two people apprehensive, and in the long run, culture plays a very limited role,” says Neda. “You deal with each other’s likes, dislikes, fears, hopes, and dreams, irrespective of where the other person is from. Even today, I am a curtail Persian Islam and Sanjit is a curtail Bengali Hindu but that has not affected our association in any way. In fact, I think cross-cultural weddings make the best babies – they’re fast developing and a lovely amalgamation of both sides.”

Most cross-cultural couples plan suitably cross-cultural weddings, but Neda insisted on an Indian experience, elephant et al.

wedding photographer

Every wannabe couple for their wedding to be a picture-perfect occurrence. And, they leave no stone persisted to turn this dream into a reality. They look for the most alluring venue, hire suitable vendors, select the most gorgeous outfits, and everything else, which helps them to make their wedding truly indelible. However, when it comes to hiring a wedding photographer, not every couple might end up making the best decision because of their lack of knowledge on how to choose the best wedding photographer in Kolkata. In fact, there are a few mistakes, which most couples usually make while booking their photographer.

Well, this can be a real marauder in any couple’s dreams of having a perfect wedding, since, only the wedding pictures conserve the memories of this beautiful day. So, here are some common mistakes you must not do, which most couples make while hiring a wedding photographer in Kolkata.

1. Budget or quality, Which one you should go for?

Having a professional wedding photographer in Kolkata is possibly the best speculation that you can make for the most important day of your life. This is where you should not be looking for the cheapest, but for the best that you can spare. Remember, even if you stretch your budget a bit more on other perspectives, it will be forgotten once the event is over. However, what will stay with you eternally would be your wedding photographs. So, it is surely not good to compromise on the quality of your photographs, just because they cost you slightly a notch under than the good ones.

2. Interfering into Photographer’s Job

Many couples tend to give their commendations to the photographer while getting themselves shot. They even reject the photographer’s inputs at times, and enforce them to do the things the way they feel is right. You have to be aware that your photographer is a pro in his or her field, and hence, is well aware of how to give you the best wedding photographs. By imposing your own terms, you might just end up peeling them; the result of which can lead to you getting the ordinary pictures.

3. Prioritizing quantity of images over quality

You might have a defined budget, and there is nothing wrong with that. But, this does not mean you need to adjust to the quality of your wedding pictures. There are ways to shoot around a low budget. However, those ways might not work at all if your preference would be to get a number of pictures than those better in terms of clarity and creativity. Well, ask you well wisher. And, if your budget does not allow you to get the photo book made right now, you can skip it for a while and get it made a little after the wedding. At present, simply focus on the photography, rather than worrying about the number of pictures you will get in your photo book.

4. Allowing other people to shoot

Nowadays, it is pretty common to see the guests clicking pictures of the couple with their cameras or at least, with their phones. Well, this can make the work of your photographer difficult, as the ardent guests might just come in their way when they might be about to capture a perfect shot. Agreed, that it might be difficult for you to prevent them, but you can always tell this in advance to at least your close buddies and family members. After all, it would be the best way to let your photographer do this job, as he/she is paid to do it.

5. Booking a distant venue

This one is particularly for the couples, who hire the photographers residing out of their own place. You have to establish that the stay arrangement of your photographer is done as early as possible, to your own place. And, in case you are having a destination wedding, then there could be nothing better than having your photographer in the same hotel or resort where you are staying. This will ensure that your destination wedding photographer does not miss any important moment, and is easily available even at certain candid moments. Additionally, they will be saved from the inconveniences of traveling back and forth with entire camera gear, when there are a couple of hours between two ceremonies.

6. Doing mess with copyrights and usage rights

Some couples might get confused by the concept that the pictures taken at their wedding for which they have paid, are owned by them. Well, prior to booking a photographer, you should be having these questions for you and your photographer both:

What is it that you are entitled to when you entitle a photographer to shoot your wedding?
Who owns the copyrighted images?
What rights do you have in your wedding images, and what rights, if any, does the photographer have?

Well, Copyright is a legal right created by the law of a country, which grants the photographer of an original photograph, exclusive rights to its use and distribution. Usually, these rights are provided for a limited time, with the intention of enabling the photographer to receive reprisal for their inventive effort.

So, you hire a photographer and in return for your investment, you are entitled to certain usage rights in the images. In the matter of your own wedding images, these rights are usually extended to personal use. This means that you will be able to do whatever you want with the images as long as you do not use them for business purposes. So, at the end of the day, all you really should have is the usage rights. At the same time, the photographer should still be able to be recognized as the creator of the photograph or film and keep his or her moral right. The photographer might want to use those from your wedding on his/her website for self-promotion, but will not be able to use images for any commercial use unless a model release is signed.

Inessential to say, pictures are the only way to preserve the moments of the most beautiful day of your life. And one of the ways to get the best wedding pictures is, to let an adroit do this task. So, all you have to do now before booking a professional photographer for your wedding is, to keep these tips in mind so as to avoid any clash between you and the photographer’s interest.
