We all must admit that most of us men have at least once or more have fantasized about getting married in a court. The brevity, simplicity and yes the savings coupled with absence of long guest-lists and annoying relatives make it a icing on the cake. While I didn’t have the fortune of getting married in the court, but my long cherished desire to cover a court wedding was fulfilled when, through a client-reference, I got an enquiry from Hans. Yes I was enthralled to know it was a court wedding and that too in the peak dry season of September ( draught period for wedding photographers because Septembers are uncool to get married ) but the good part doesn’t end there. The groom and the bride were wildlife photographers themselves and worked for preservation of wildlife at Tadoba National Park, Maharastra. It is always a privilege when you are selected by photographers to shoot their wedding and more so when they are such distinguished set of people trying to make this world a better place for everyone.

Hans despite suffering from cerebral palsy was a sound engineer who worked on many Bollywood scores before getting into wildlife conservation. The bride, Avantika, worked in the airline industry with KLM before two of them started their NGO PROWL.

The day started early with Avantika getting ready at the Cricket Club of India and Hans at his home at Malabar Hills.
