What made Soul Photography stand out?
We always had Soul Photography in mind for our big day. Mickey is a good friend of ours and constantly uploaded amazing pictures of other weddings he shot on his blog. We visited quite a few photographers but it helps when your photographer knows you and the kind of mood you are after for the wedding photos. Mickey was able to capture all shots, from the emotional ones to the funny and creative ones.
How did Soul Photography approach your special day?
We contacted Mickey to book him in and he was great with us! He arranged a conference call with us to talk about what kind of photography package we wanted, how many hours we required him for and even drew up a schedule listing all the timings of what was happening on the wedding day.
This way we were all on the same page of what was going to happen on our big day. Also, on the wedding day, Mickey eased off any nerves that Tejal was feeling prior to when she made her way down the aisle. This helped us enjoy the wedding ceremony rather than feeling nervous or anxious about anything.
Did your suppliers meet your expectations on the day?
For any large-scale wedding planning, something is bound to not go as what we planned. Tejal’s wedding and reception dresses were received the week of the wedding due to delays in shippings from Eid celebrations. Also, the Cocktail/Mocktail bar ran out of alcohol quickly which meant that people were going to the hotel bar for their drinks.
However, Rashpal from our events company, Mistique, kept communicating with us about where we needed to be and created a magical looking venue. Our catering staff served amazing meals that were also Ekadasi friendly (fasting from grains) and our DJ was the cherry on top of our evening with his awesome DJ’ing skills.
Most of all, we both had amazing friends and family who were our back-bones during the wedding journey and were liaising with all the suppliers during the day making sure everything was ok.
