Gitanjali & Alex | Intimate Rustic Jungle Wedding | Masinagudi
Getting married in Jungle was really meaningful for Gita and Alex. She grew up in their house in middle of the Jungle of Masinagudi with the gorgeous backdrop of the Niligiri mountains and spent lot of time with her father (an elephant engineer) in wilds along with rescued elephants. She is so inspired by nature, anybody can see that in her work and feel that in her stories. Finally, she decided to get married in Jungle in very same house, in a very minimalistic, intimate way. Unlike usual indian weddings, it was quiet and calm with lush greenery all around. We even got lucky to hear elephants trumpeting the morning of the wedding and the sighting of a leopard that evening. Their main wedding ceremony, the Kanyadaanam and Mangalya Dhaaranam, took place in an eco-friendly mantap under the tree. Their wedding venue was blessed by a few precious fair-weathered hours.
Straight from Bride's Diary..
Alex and I met in the most cheesy way.. We met in Goa hahaha! To be more specific, we actually met exactly 4 years ago to our wedding date, on 11th Oct 2013. I guess it was fate telling us something? I was on a much needed break with a few friends/colleagues from Bangalore. Alex was there with the French group from Bangalore, of whom I knew one of them well - Capucine. When I told her I was in Goa that weekend, she asked me to join her and her friends to catch up. Alex happened to be there at that table. Thats how we met. It turned out to be a really fun holiday, with me extending my leave by another 3 days and spending time with him. The real love story began a couple weeks after Goa, when he turned up to a place he knew I would be at back in Bangalore, and asked me to join him for movies and dinner. After that, there was no looking back :)
