Limited Members Wedding Ceremony

We enjoyed enough to cover Sabyasachi and Radhika’s wedding ceremony with limited members of both families during this pandemic in Kolkata. The opportunity first came from Sabyaschi’s family in Purba Bardhaman early in this year 2021. We accepted after a long discussion during this covid situation. We maked plan to cover the entire story in kollkata and Bardhaman also with minimum photographers and camerapersons.

In Bengali culture, marriage symbolises not just the sacred union of two individuals, but the alliance of two families and extended relations as well. We are very happy to realise that Sabyasachi of Purba Bardhaman and Radhika of Kolkata saw each other for the first time only on their wedding day. We like to share few of their epic wedding moments with you.
