Updated with a longer dance video, AND SHAHID SPEAKS ON STAGE AT HIS SANGEET!
You’ve already got the low down on every single detail, picture and video of Shahid Kapoor’s wedding to Mira Rajput that took place in Delhi yesterday. In my last post on the blog, I shared everything I could find about the wedding so you didn’t have to go click click click to 20 different places to get all the Shahid wedding details.
As the day progressed, a surprising amount of information made its way onto social media and news outlets, especially considering this was a very private affair and everyone involved was being really tight-lipped about it. What us Shahid fans have loved most, though, is the videos of our hero dancing on his own Sangeet. We’ve seen him give some amazing dance performances over the years, but there’s nothing as special as seeing him act like a regular guy next door, dancing with his bride to be and family on his big day 🙂

UPDATED with even more songs for 2016 Weddings!
As the rest of us start to wonder how much longer we can pull off wearing the same anarkali over and over again with different shawls (is wedding season on in full swing or what!), brides all over the country are wrapping up last-minute preparations for their early 2015 wedding. Sangeet practices have begun in every city, and irrespective of which Singh (Honey or Arijit) you’re a fan of – the Sangeet is your favourite function. Well, unless you’re my husband and dread having to dance with complete strangers who you’re forced to call family three nights in a year. (Right? Righttt?)
If you’re preparing for a close relative or friend’s wedding, you would’ve experienced (or are about to) the Group Dance Song Agreement Situation, or as Continue reading “Sangeet Songs: The Group Dance”
UPDATED with even more songs for 2016 Weddings!
You may have heard that my best friend is getting married. With just over a week left to her Sangeet, dance practices have been on in full swing. One of the things we’ve had trouble deciding has been – the bride and groom song. Both of them are a little shy about performing with just each other on stage. And solo songs? Forgetaboutit. So I tried pitching a few songs to them that are not super mushy and romantic – maybe they would be more comfortable doing a cool/cute song with no ballroom dancing involved? Then I realised – hey! I have a whole list to share Continue reading “Sangeet Songs: The Bride & Groom Dance”
So… I made a video. While my friends and family were choreographing and rehearsing dance routines for our Sangeet back in October 2012, I was taking attempting candid-style videos from my SLR camera. In the hopes that one day, my videographer would be able to stitch it together with the final dance performances (yes, we call … Continue reading The Making Of: Parents’ Dance Video
Dramatic. Fun. Go big or go home. That pretty much sums up the Rohit Bal show!
But before we get into the details of the clothes & the show, here’s another mini-story about…
How I managed to give you live-updates at the jam-packed show with so many people blocking my view
I was one of the first few people to enter the show area, and I quickly found myself a fantastic spot in the aisle (I didn’t want to sit as I would be unable to see the clothes properly). I was basically standing right next to the second row, which was a pretty great spot! Unfortunately, getting in early proved disadvantageous. It started to get really full, so full that other people from the media came and stood right in front of me. It was so packed, they had nowhere else to go!

I first saw pictures of Sahiba & Jitin’s wedding on Photo Tantra’s Facebook page, and couldn’t help but fall in love with the bride! From her natural looking makeup, to classy jewellery and beautiful wedding outfit – she makes for a perfect inspiration for brides to be. I wanted to feature her on my blog and so I got in touch with Photo Tantra and eventually, the bride herself! Sahiba was really sweet and shared plenty of details about her wedding to help out fellow brides. Have a look!
First up – a breakdown of Sahiba’s wedding outfits! Continue reading “Wedding Wardrobe: Sahiba”
