How It all began

A spark of a beautiful idea was born when Mathangi and Anita, two creative and passionate people, met over coffee in 2015. The idea that no matter where you are in the world, you should have that once-in-a-lifetime dream wedding in all its glory minus the hassles. Mathangi and Anita combined forces, and Weddings and Marigolds was born.

In an exciting new development, we've become even more of a one-stop shop for all your wedding planning needs. The wife-and-husband team of Potok's World Photography is going to partner with Weddings and Marigolds. Serving couples in the USA since 2014, this award-winning company is now going to be helping couples in Chennai preserve their wedding-day memories forever. Anji and Pete Martin combine a documentary style with an artistic approach that will capture your most meaningful wedding moments in the most beautiful way possible. Both have deep personal connections to South India and a great understanding of how to document its special wedding traditions.

So, as Indians across the world celebrate the most memorable day of their lives, Weddings and Marigolds will be there to ensure that it is also their happiest.

Anji and Pete Martin

Anji & Pete MartinBusiness Partner

We’re Anji and Pete Martin of Potok’s World Photography, a wedding photography company that has been documenting marriage celebrations in the Washington, DC, metro area since 2014. We’re excited to be expanding our reach by offering our award-winning wedding photography services to couples in Chennai! We both have a deep personal connection to the city, a love of everything about South Indian marriage celebrations and a photography style that is perfectly suited to capturing the things that make Chennai weddings special.

Anji was born and raised in Hannover, Germany, but her mom comes from Chennai. So she visited the city frequently as a child. Pete is from the U.S. but has lived abroad for most of his adult life, thanks in part to his time in the American Foreign Service. His first overseas posting was at the U.S. Consulate General in Chennai, and he relishes every chance he gets to return to a city he came to love.

Our personal history and experience photographing South Indian marriage events means we are knowledgeable about the traditions and rituals that are so important to couples and their families. Perhaps more importantly, though, we understand how vital it is to preserve wedding-day memories forever. We want our couples’ children and grandchildren to see the photos and experience what it was like to be there. With that in mind, we aim to capture every moment that matters, every emotion that our couples feel and every element that contributes to their love story.
