While theirs is an arranged marriage, Abhijith and Nayana of Alappuzha in Kerala, India, wanted to make the most of their union by having the best wedding they could afford. Plus, they also wanted to make sure their wedding photos would be awesome, considering these memories are supposed to last a lifetime.

The 26-year-old Abhijit works in a Spices company while 23-year-old Nayana is a nurse.

According to Abhijit, he doesn’t really dig social media but Nayana is ‘always online’. The bride shared that she often sees photos of her friends getting married at the beach; this is quite common considering that Kerala is set on the tropical Malabar Coast.

While there’s nothing wrong with a beach wedding and photoshoot, of course, she wanted their wedding to be different. So, they enlisted the help of a local photographer who liked the idea.

For the whopping cost of 100,000 Indian Rupees (nearly $1,500), the photographer promised them amazing photos that would last a lifetime – and would impress their friends on social media.

When the couple agreed to pay the price, the photographer readied the materials and invited them to his home where he had dug a giant pit at the backyard. He also had several assistants to take the pictures from different angles and to work on the props.

The group made sure there was water in the pit. Then props were added, such as flowers and lotus leaves, for a romantic scenery. After the initial pictures were taken, assistants used a water hose to simulate rain – and the resulting photos were so stunning that you’d think the photoshoot was done in a very expensive location!

While there were those who slammed the couple for paying a lot of money for the wedding photos, the resulting pictures were so awesome that we’re willing to bet a lot of netizens would not hesitate to pay that much money if they had it, just to have photos like these taken for their wedding, too…
