Canada-based photographer Aristodemo told BuzzFeed that it was a creative photoshoot and was inspired by Rudyard Kipling's childhood classic, The Jungle Book. The shoot took place in Canada.

Wedding blog The Big Fat Indian Wedding uploaded the photo shoot that was ornate with exotic flowers, birds of paradise, and elephants.

"This shoot was mainly inspired by the lush jungles and rain forests from my travels and the growing multicultural diversity of my couples. I thought, what a perfect way to bring these elements together than with the overlying theme of The Jungle Book," Aristodemo told The Big Fat Indian Wedding.

There were sweet dishes in the shape of elephants.

*Let's keep in mind the excess elephants in the photo shoot is in tandem with Kipling's pretty inaccurate perception of India depicted in The Jungle Book. I've seen literally two elephants in my life, and I've lived in India for 26 years.
