An Abu Dhabi Destination Wedding Photo Story | Nitya+Mohit

A grand Abu Dhabi destination wedding that celebrated the love of Nitya and Mohit

In this wedding photography story, Nitya and Mohit married each other in a magnificent Abu Dhabi destination wedding at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, earlier this year. It was a joyous and vibrant celebration of their marriage. Their family and friends made sure that it would be a memorable event for the couple for years to come. Here are some of our favourite moments from their wedding.

Part 1: Pre-Wedding in ITC Grand Bharat

Before we flew to Abu Dhabi for their wedding, we did a short pre-wedding session for the excited couple at ITC Grand Bharat. Their chemistry was so sweet and loving that it was a fun afternoon shooting them in the gorgeous ITC property.

We are always fascinated with bougainvillea – and when we found a gorgeous bush in a remote corner of the property, we made a beeline for it!
Once the sun set, it was time for some fun silhouettes!

Part 2: Moroccan Night

The wedding celebrations started in Abu Dhabi with an over the top, grand Moroccan night. The couple entered amidst a group of arabic dance performers and that set the tone for the rest of the evening. There were belly dancers, and other performing artists making the after-party a truly vibrant and energetic affair.

It was time for the entire gang to let loose, and they had an after-party that Abu Dhabhi would remember for a while!

It’s not a party without a champagne shower!

Part 3: Pool Party & Sangeet night

The next began with a relaxed pool party. After last night’s party, it was a much-needed rest for the guests so they could recharge for the sangeet night. We managed to get a few quick portraits of the couple before the event began.

The couple made a quirky entry on an oyster-on-wheels with colour bombs and Go Go dancers to add a pop to the event!

Percussion drummer Walter kicked off the event with some wicked beats!

The sangeet evening was truly a magical and splendid event. We witnessed some amazing family performances and a grand finale performance by the bride herself! Not to mention, Nitya’s father brought the energy of the sangeet to a whole different level. It was clear he was super excited and happy for his daughter.

This wedding was quite special for us. A few years ago, we were also a part of Sia (Mohit’s sister) and Ashu’s wedding. So we were glad to be a part of the family’s celebrations once again.

Nitya was suddenly 10 feet tall!
There’s nothing more apt than a photobooth prop like this one.

Part 4: Haldi

The haldi ceremony was messy, fun and crazy to the core! Nitya and Mohit’s friends and family pulled out all the stops for this one! While Nitya was doused with haldi, kethcup, chutney and whatnot, Mohit was splashed with all kinds of soft drinks!

Yep, that’s Ketchup.
Out comes the soft drinks!
The first couple in the family we had shot – Sia and Ashu – way back in 2016!

Part 5: Wedding

As always, we had to rush down for the baraat but not before we captured our groom-to-be all dressed up and ready to go!

Even though Mohit’s father was unwell, he wanted to be a part of such a special part of his son’s wedding.
There ain’t a baarat without beats.
We just HAD to capture this gorgeous red Sabyasachi lehenga in front of the iconic mosque of Abu Dhabi.

When Nitya was getting ready, her dad walked in to put on her bridal set. (Backstory: her dad is a famous jeweller in Hyderabad, so his jewellery has made countless brides stunning on their wedding day.) When it was time for him to dress up his own daughter, it was a super emotional moment for the both of them (watch the video to see what he says!).

Nitya’s trusted bride-tribe.

Once she was ready, we had a few minutes to make some portraits of the bride.

Against those gorgeous huge windows at the Ritz Carlton.
Wow, that set! Just HAD to make a photo of it.

For her vidai, the couple left in a gorgeous Rolls Royce Phantom. What a lovely car.
Just as it was time to say goodbye.
