If the rather good looking guy in the photos below looks familiar, its because you see him on TV every week on the extremely popular “Kehta Hai Dil Jee Le Zara” . Judging from the crying/ heartbroken faces our readers made when we showed his pre wedding shots, he is quite a favourite with girls . Ruslaan Mumtaaz however, has eyes for one girl only – his long time girlfriend Nirali Mehta – and they had an intimate, quaint wedding in Mumbai recently and they chose none other than Ayush Das from Strange Sadhu Photography to shoot their big day ! We love the colors Nirali chose for her sangeet, and Ruslaan painted quite a picture himself ;)
Meet Ruslaan Mumtaaz & Niral Mehta
He is a television actor (and has done Bollywood movies as well), She is a wealth manager by profession. It was Shiamak Davar who was responsible for bringing them together really. Both these cuties are part of SPB (That’s Shiamaks special performance batch- which has given birth to many a star. Shahid Kapoor to name one!), which is where they met. Their wedding was one gala affair of dancing, friends and most importantly young love !
The Pre Wedding Shoot
What an adorable couple and stunning shots!
Nirali gets ready for her mehendi. What a simple, elegant anarkali!f
Ooh whose that lady in yellow ! Its Jacqueline Fernandes (she is wearing Deepika Govind)
Don’t miss Jackies Maang tikka- star shaped !! Funky !
That is the super good looking Nakul Mehta who is also a tele actor and his wife Jankee. Love what she is wearing- looks like a Shehla !
Ooh no points for guessing who that is. Sakshi Tanwar from Kahaani ghar Ghar ki fame
Nirali’s brother never dances, but he performed for her on their sangeet- which made Nirali tear up!
From the Photographer: Strange Sadhu Weddings wanted to portray the nondescript yet prized moments for the couple. Though candid photographs seem to be the order of the day, for this special couple’s wedding I harmoniously captured conventional shots which would fit in the family album along with the fun filled stills that would always be a happy memory to fall back on. Lastly, precious events like weddings are innately beautiful, I like to interfere in the least possible manner to ensure that each couple celebrates their unique love story and weaves their fairy tale wedding that not only celebrates the couple’s union but also the family love that surrounds them.
Why they chose Ayush: They wanted Ayush (Strange Sadhu Weddings) capture the essence of their loved ones. Be it the usually shy brother dancing like a star at the wedding to the grandmother exuding timeless grace and love. The couple felt by choosing Strange Sadhu Weddings they would get an eternal record of all their loved ones celebrating the start of their most important journey together in life, as they rightly insisted that without family and friends they would merely exist and not live.
