Catching gay couples in the middle of their wedding rituals is a delight for sore eyes. This is candid photography at its best. The amount of love, peace and fulfilment you’ll witness is unmatched and there’s nothing more beautiful than that. This Indo-American lesbian couple stole a moment in the middle of their wedding rituals to share eye contact and we haven’t seen anything more soothing in a long time. The way their eyes meet and lips curve into a gleeful smile are a true testament to serene yearning for each other. Just find yourself someone who looks at you the way these two look at each other.

There’s nothing quite euphoric than the day two madly-in-love people ceremonialise their love and tie themselves in holy matrimony–and watching this lesbian couple stand unfazed shoulder to shoulder is a true depiction of unbarred, relentless love. From the white saree that complements the black sherwani, to their jewellery - everything was just perfect for a couple portrait. The sun may be shining brightly upon them but there’s nothing brighter than their gleaming soul as they finally declare themselves wife and wife.

Raising a toast to unconditional love

The feeling of finally solemnising gay love into an eternal bond with due respect and admiration of the friends, family and also the society definitely calls for great celebration and we would totally sip to that. Get inspired by this gay couple and raise a toast to hardships that are now bygones and a future which is full of excitement, passion and love. A love that binds everything in the end; eradicates all differences, knows no bounds and is free from all conditions.

Getting married in itself is an extremely hearty and emotional celebration–and to be able to tie the knot with the person whom you love and was denied the right to do is tremendously liberating and of course, gratifying. The days of hardships, denial, secrecy have been brushed under the rug and you can finally embrace the power of love, faith and wholeheartedness. Nonetheless, we’re swamped with the warmth and compassion we witnessed in this hearty bunch of same-sex couple portraits. Are you too?
