Kashmir is called Paradise on Earth for a good reason! When the couple Kiran & Vipul mentioned they wanted to shoot in the snow, Gulmarg was the first choice! Everyone, specially the couple braved negative temperatures to do something that had never been done before. WeddingNama planned the shoot in February which turned out to be the coldest time of the year there. Upon reaching they discovered that it was the most snow Gulmarg had seen in over 35 years!
Imagine being completely surrounded by snow, trying to carry heavy equipment while trekking in the snow, and to top it up the couple was certain that they wanted to wear Indian clothes and not winter wear.
Till the last moment it was undecided whether this shoot was a possibility. The local people were very helpful to scout for locations. The team was carrying backups of everything starting from equipment to outfits. WeddingNama's helicam sacrificed itself for this shoot but thankfully everything else magically fell into place.
This shoot was a classic case of 'where there is a will, there is a way'. They experienced everything starting from extreme snowfall to sunshine all in a span of three days. It was the perfect combination of a mad idea, a crazy couple in love, a stunning location, lots of snow, and of course a superb filming team.
