I was slightly nervous typing the words –
“Dear Snigdha & Vinayak, I’m a big fan of your work…in fact, your were on the dream photography team list for my wedding…”
I was composing an email to Snigdha Sheel & Vinayak Das, the husband-wife team of Photo Tantra, one of the top wedding photographers Continue reading “thedelhibells: Post-Wedding Shoot”
I generally follow a strict chronological order on this blog, and I refuse to share the latest unless the backlog is all cleared out. I’m making an exception now, because there are a few posts I need to share with you NOW! Here’s the first one!
When does a girl re-use her wedding lehenga? On her sibling’s wedding, or her first karva chauth. I wore mine on my second karva chauth! If you’ve been around here for a while, you know that Continue reading “My Second Karva Chauth: In Pictures”
This is the final post in thedelhibells: Honeymoon series. Catch up with Part 1, Part 2 & Part 3 if you’ve missed them, before you move on to the post below.
My husband & I left for Singapore the next morning after breakfast. We lost a couple of hours to the time difference, so by the time we landed it was already dark. The 2 hour flight delay didn’t help either. We reached our hotel at 11.30 pm, tired and hungry. So I quickly ordered for dinner in the room, and while we unpacked for the 3rd & last time on this trip, I made it amply clear to my husband that I wouldn’t be able to (read: flat our refused to) get ready at 8 am the next morning for the city tour. It may also have had something to do with the fact that I’d visited Singapore on a family vacation many years ago, so I decided I’d rather sleep in than end the honeymoon on an exhausted note.
The next morning, Continue reading “thedelhibells: Singapore aka Honeymoon Part 4”
Read Part 1 & Part 2 to know how we began our honeymoon journey with Karva Chauth & a trip to Gold Coast.
We landed in Sydney at 8 AM and headed straight for the hotel. The check-in was uneventful, for which I was truly grateful. Yes, we’d requested an early check-in in advance! Lesson learnt! The hotel was nice Continue reading “thedelhibells: Sydney aka Honeymoon Part 3”
If you haven’t read Part 1 yet, you can catch up with it here before you move on to read Part 2.
Day 2 in Australia. My husband and I woke up early to get ready for a day of touring Gold Coast. We threw open the curtains, and what revealed itself was a very pretty view from our room! Continue reading “thedelhibells: Gold Coast aka Honeymoon Part 2”

I know, I know. You are expecting the Honeymoon post. I began writing this with the title “thedelhibells: Honeymoon” but the story of the first 48 hours of our honeymoon is so intimately tied up with Karva Chauth, that I can’t possibly talk about it without mentioning this first. You know me, I must give you ALL the details and so – here’s the story of my first Karva Chauth. Continue reading “thedelhibells: First Karva Chauth”
I got married on a Sunday. And the Reception was on a Wednesday. In between — there was sheer madness.
Monday morning, I woke up in my new house. My first day as a married girl. We had a late breakfast, and I changed into a sari that was gifted to me by my in-laws. Continue reading “thedelhibells: Reception”
The Reception post will be up by the end of this week. In the meantime, I thought it was only fair to share some getting ready shots that were taken at the parlor.

If you’re new to the blog, start reading thedelhibells series from here. This is post #9. Part 1 Sunday. I wake up for the last time as a single girl.

With the Sagan ceremony and ring exchange done, it was time to dance. And so began my favourite event of all – the Sangeet! The flow of events had been pre-decided. Our sisters were comperes for the night. They’d start off with their solo dance numbers, followed by dance performances by family and friends. The … Continue reading thedelhibells: Sangeet
