Ring Bearer Pillows and more

ring pillows by anekdesigns

I had a ring pillow for my engagement ceremony 3.5 years ago (gosh that sounds like a long time now). It was carried to the ceremony stage by my two little nieces and i thought it looked wonderful. Essentially a more western concept and specific to Christian Weddings, the Ring Barer Pillow is a classic and elegant way to carry the rings for your D- day!

The one I used in my celebrations was a shiny Dark Red Pillow with Red Ribbons, the whole gesture of opening the ribbon tie to take the rings out adds to the setting and feels wonderful.

I personally like simpler more classic ring bearer, rather than the shiny gaudy decorated thalis and multi step fake flower arrangements. Pillows done in colours that match your theme carried by the sisters of the bride or cousins or nieces look awesome. I like involving all my young nieces and nephews in the ceremonies since they are absolutely smitten with the whole wedding affair and take their responsibilities seriously (it also makes them feel important...and makes for super cute pics!! ).

I have now come up with a small range of ring pillows from my cute little textile studio, check them out here. If you like them, do spread the word!! :)

numenphotos: weddings travel studio

So here I am after many many days to bring to you fabulous photography by Sumit Saini!
Sumit is a dear friend and colleague from NID. Even though Sumit is a Product Designer, photography remains a passion for him and his love affair with camera started while still in NID. 
(me thinks his love affair with camera was triggered by the need to capture his beautiful lady love tsk tsk)

Here's what Sumit has to say about himself...

'I am a designer by profession and a photographer by zeal. My interest in photography began at the National Institute of Design Ahmedabad and gradually bloomed into an obsession. I like to capture the beauty of the everyday and reveal the core of what is beautiful. From the platform of "numenphotos", I offer visually and emotionally captivating photography, ranging from weddings to studio to travel.'

'My wedding photographs preserve the wonderful expressions in your life—a naughty look, a euphoric shout, a loving gesture, a light moment—in a fresh way.'

'Wedding photographs usually look like replicas of each other against different backdrops, but my photographs capture the story hidden behind each shot. I collect and distill those stories into pure memorabilia. I try to freeze the emotions so that you can relive the pleasure and excitement of the most significant days of your life.'

'Travelling is an ancient endeavor and it has accomplished so much that is part of our world today. My photographs capture what a new traveler feels when his eyes see something for the first time. Raw and compelling, my travel photographs will transport you to that place and time, removing all the distance between you and your destination.'

Thank you for sharing your work here Sumit!!
