“A daughter’s vidai is the most emotional moment for her family. I made this shot as the bride’s father reached out to her to say goodbye. I focused on the bride’s face through the window, which also reflected her father’s face.” – Sutirtha Basu

Winner: Ghanshyam Kahar

“Maybe it was the weather in France, maybe it was their amazing family and friends, or maybe it was the joy of their love; but Vicky and Craig’s wedding was definitely special. The couple was lovely and it was really easy working with them. I chose to make this series into black and white because I felt colours to distract from the emotions that were being felt by the couple.” – Radhika Pandit
