Akshaya + Sriram 3


We’ve an incredibly cool wedding for you guys today, something unlike any wedding that’s been featured in this blog (or any blog for that matter :p) so far. The bride and the groom, actually got together to perform in their own wedding! They called themselves the Dulhan Brass Band, and I kid you not, played metal. That is easily the coolest wedding thing I’ve EVER heard. Check out pictures from this awesome wedding featuring these two beautiful people breaking all the rules, and having the time of their lives.

Akshaya and Sriram met in the US when Sriram and his friend, who used to jam together, were looking for a singer to complete the band.

“I was in a band called Venator a few years back in Bangalore so she’s seen me do vocals. She was eager to set me up with two guys in Detroit who were jamming and looking to form a band. One of them was Sriram who plays the drums. We discovered that we both worked for the same company so we met up and started jamming soon after. We started dating and after what seemed like an accelerated few months in our relationship, decided to get married.

 “Performing at our wedding made sense because the band is what brought us together. Our guitarist and a friend who plays the bass flew in for our wedding too. I have to say, the astonished faces of Tambrahm sexa and septuagenarians when the bride and groom played progressive metal in traditional wedding attire was the best part of the wedding”

 

I’ve got to say that I agree. Sriram has a quip of his own to share about the wedding –

 

Don’t forget the saree adorned bride’s heavy metal growling vocals that left people shocked (but surprisingly, cheering). They’re used to celebrating a glowing bride…this time it was a growling bride they celebrated!

 

Cannot. Get. Enough. Of. These. Two.
