It all happened when Daphne’s parent accompanied by one more relative of them came to our office. We were delighted to shoot another Christian marriage. This time it would be in Light Auditorium in Purasaiwalkkam, Chennai. Every other rituals of Daphne’s marriage with Christopher, the engagement and the wedding ceremony, were conducted in the same auditorium and the Church that abuts it.
We were told that the Church had may restrictions in movements and it would be challenging to shoot some wonderful pictures. We did not relent. Rather we planned it better by visiting the Church the day before and we rehearsed. Yes, we rehearsed as to where to place the camera keeping in mind where the couple would stand before the priest and take their wedding vows. We were all set and prepared for the wedding day.
The colorful day dawned for Christopher and Daphne. The arch with flowers resembled those glowing stars high above the sky. The setting was wonderful, the backdrop was astonishingly incredible and the mood in the air was celebratory. The getting ready shots were well received. We were delighted that the marriage shoot went smooth and nice. Then it was time for some casual pictures. The exterior of the Church gave a classical look and voila, they helped us give a phenomenal exterior portrait shots.
The bride’s brother was a single point of contact and he coordinated pretty well. He brought his entire family to our studio for a green mat video shoot of montage videos. Overall the entire experience was a well deserved one for us and we are indeed glad that we have indeed played a small part to bring them their “nostalgia”.
