The credit for this matchmaking goes to Tanmayee’s mom who introduced the couple to each other. Tanmayee was initially skeptical about the match since she and Mandar came from different backgrounds, professions and the geographical distances between the two weren’t helping. She was an Architect and he was a Chef. She was based in Pune and he in Canada. At her mom’s insistence, Tanmayee decided to give the relationship a try. The couple gradually got to know each other through chats and phone calls which became lengthier with time. One day, Mandar flew down to India to surprise Tanmayee. This was the first time they were meeting each other. A couple of hours in each other’s company and their fate was sealed.

Tanmayee had meticulously planned all the details of her dream wedding – the decor, colour themes and even the dress code for the guests. Her Mehndi was an intimate yet extravagant event. She had visualised the colour theme, decor and had even commissioned ‘mehndi themed’ deserts. The Haldi was an elegant affair with all the ladies in traditional Kasavu sarees. These cream and golden sarees provided the perfect backdrop for the pop of mustard and yellow hues at the ceremony. The couple tied the knot in a traditional Maharashtrian ceremony and had the most picturesque ‘saptapadi’ set-up. Seven plump roses, each with a betel-nut in the centre were placed on a carpet of flowers which formed the walk-way. As the ritual got underway, guests showered the couple with flower petals from both side. It was a visual treat and photographer’s delight to capture.
