G + S – A Mukatsar-Bathinda Wedding

Brides The Groom Wedding
May 11, 2016

 

Groom’s side hailed from village Chakk Madrassa (Mukatsar). I don’t know how to put this exactly in words, but its the part of Punjab which still is very much ‘Punjab’. Gurraj’s Baarat started from the village itself and reached Bathinda. I am eating up a lot of words intentionaly, while writing this piece, because I want you to look through the photo-story which tells it all, just better 😀

with authentic chooridaars, the struggle gets real.

 

I have seen many Malwayi-Gidha teams but these guys were just amazing!

The traditional songs , being sang all along the wedding, were a treat to ears and soul.

And one chill-session with buddies

Aaaja nach naviye bharjaayiye

We just had one half-an-hour time window one day before their marriage. But chemistry of these two beautiful people saved the grace. My heartiest wishes to these loveies <3 Watchful guardians .. :) Giggles all the way..

Although it was very difficult for me to even sit let alone move with heavy equipment, I took my chances. I shot the wedding from early morning till noon, as soon as the couple had a break I rushed to a local lab to get my ultrasound done. It was severe liver infection, the doctor said. So I went back, did ...
