Tie the Knot with Your Partner with the New Normal Rituals
Oh! This is the toughest time to work, nah? When the whole world seems upside down and everything gets so standstill it’s really tough to celebrate! Marriage is a relation of lifelong a pure and sacred vow to one another, a promise to enjoy togetherness for the rest of life.
But this global pandemic postpones the wedding ceremony of many couples who have waited for long to get bonded with their soul-mate! Even the government has implemented the new norms of organizing any occasion. I personally experienced this in the recent wedding photoshoot of Anindita and Rishabh.
So, let’s have a look at the ways you can organize minimalistic wedding ceremony this downtime year just like this wonderful couple did.
The new normal rituals
Does the word seem awkward to you? It is it! You know wedding comes with lots of rituals and customs according to the religions. Well, now COVID-19 pandemic brings out come new rituals to stay safe despite the occasion and religion. When you are about to organize wedding ceremony, masks must be worn and hand sanitizer should be there for everyone’s use as this lovely couple did.
In fact the guests are allowed only if they are wearing masks and sanitize their hands at the entrance of the venue. You can also hire a medical personnel for checking the body temperature of the invited guests. Now, to get out of this boredom, you can wear matching weddings staple (face masks) as per your dress color or design just like Anindita and Rishabh.
Organize a small and intimate wedding ceremony
As it is unpredictable for how long the deadly Coronavirus is going to sustain in this world more people are getting inclined to small and intimate wedding. Even government has nodded to minimalistic wedding ceremony. Although the unlock phase is there yet people simply don’t want to take up the risks of being infected.
Obviously it is better to get married in a simple way instead of mulling in uncertainty. Rishabh and Anindita invite only a couple of guests, relatives, friends or attendees to bless and wish them. However, no matter how much joyful the occasion is social distancing isn’t compromised as far as I am concerned during the shoot.
As a photographer, I would like to recommend the wedding photographers in Kolkata to follow the social norms and practice good hygiene habits during any kind of photoshoot.
When cuisines play an integral role in an wedding event, it’s about relishing the food too. Rather than, buffet meals, plated meals will be given high priority. It is simple because it keeps everything untouched considering the social distancing and unnecessary touch.
Virtual vows and digital wedding
Although Rishabh and Anindita could spare time to get united and perform the rituals together. But what about the couple who are staying far abroad? Digital wedding can fill up the space. Yes, in such cases brides, bridesmaid, groom and relatives can join for a video call for getting married and witnessing the new journey in their life while staying far away from one another.
Both the bride and groom dress up in their bridal dress, do the hair and makeup and perform the rituals together. Recorded sangeet ceremony can be performed via zoom or Facebook call. In such cases, you may take screenshots of some lovely moments and we will create the picture perfect photos for you from that by retouching. Nothing can stop you from being together with your soulmate! This lockdown has surely proved this. It has shown how strong the newly-wed couple like Anindita and Rishabh is! Even it depicts the potentiality of waiting and commitment of many others bride-to-be and groom-to-be to one another who have dreamt of a fairytale wedding in a grandeur manner. Wish them happiness, much strength and stay safe and strong!
