Mihir Garh Wedding // Kish & Kush

 
It’s quite difficult to put into words just how special this Mihir Garh wedding was. Take the venues, for instance: Rohet Garh, a family run former fort just outside Jodhpur, and Mihir Garh, a castle made of sand (yes, really) in the middle of the Thar desert. Or take the different events spread over the 3-day celebration: Prohibition in the Palace, a 1920’s themed evening party around the poolside at Rohet Garh; the Mehendi party at Rohet Wilderness Camp, a bright and colourful party with singing, dancing and street food (oh the food. If I only ate the food we ate in India for the rest of my life, I’d be happy and never be bored); a Bollywood party on the lawns at Rohet Garh, with dancing and music til the early hours; the wedding ceremony at sunset on the lawns of Mihir Garh, and finally, a party (actually let’s not beat around the bush here, a rave) that guests were transported to in complete darkness, on carts pulled by camels, with fire performers appearing suddenly out of the inky black night, in the middle of the Thar desert. And just typing these words doesn’t do any of these events justice.

So how did I find myself in the desert at 3am in the middle of December, covered in sand, watching an eclectic group of people who’d flown in from all over the world, celebrating with the couple at the heart of all this, Kish and Kush? It started with me getting a Whatsapp message that read ”after about 6 months of searching, I have finally found you. You completely encompass everything that I was looking for in terms of style and approach to wedding photography.” And thus, my conversation with Kish began, and 6 months later, I was on a plane to India. Along for the ride was great friend and ace photographer, Matt Tyler , who came along to second shoot for me, videographer Richard Leng who I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside before (if you’re after discreet, cinematic and breathtakingly beautiful video of your day, Richard is your guy), and Dave Mulligan, Kish & Kush’s favourite London bartender and Poitín pusher, who they’d asked to come out and run the drinks side of things for all the various events.

Kish and Kush wanted purely documentary coverage of their wedding and gave us total free reign to document it as we saw it. They were a dream to work with and made us so welcome; before the wedding, once we were there and even making sure our epic journey back to the UK was as comfortable and smooth as possible. Their Mihir Garh wedding was an incredible experience, and one I won’t forget in a hurry!

      Thanks Suzanne! I actually lost my flash at the end of the last night, and had to buy another one as soon as I got back to London as I had a wedding 2 days later!
