Wedding Planning – Where it all started

Mrs Kamal Shah contacted us regarding her son’s Wedding. The Bride and Groom lived outside the country. Hence, all the planning was being handled by her. We had a couple of meetings, during which we discussed our professional role in planning, designing, managing and executing the various events. We were on board and since then we met on several occasions; planning and discussing our options in making the wedding unique and memorable. Soon, we were more like family. We fell in love with her personality. A woman with strong values and beliefs. On the other hand, an emotional mother who did not want to leave any stone unturned to make this wedding a unique affair. And that’s exactly what we wanted the wedding to reflect. A modern, luxurious and elegant affair.

The Couple

Since Aditya and Madhur lived in Australia, we only spoke over the phone on a couple of occasions. We only got to see them closer to the wedding date when they arrived in India. They are the cutest couple we have seen. More like a match made in heaven. Grounded, polite, sweet, super cool, are some words we can use to describe this gorgeous couple. Looking at them we knew for sure that this was going to be a picture perfect wedding.

Wedding Invites

Lets start with these unique and beautiful invites. A quadrangular shaped invite with a combination of ivory and gold on the outside and colorful cards on the inside. Each colour representing each function.

The wedding had total of four functions, As all hindu weddings do. It was a destination wedding and we had guests gracing the occasion from Gujarat, Mumbai, Turkey and Australia ! We simply love the idea of a destination wedding. How it binds all the guests together like one big family, having one big party ! It definitely leaves beautiful memories which guests can cherish for a lifetime.

Mehendi

The celebration started with the Mehendi ceremony. Where all the ladies including the Bride applied mehendi on their hands and legs.  Since, Mehendi ceremony is all about fun, we added a lot of vibrant colors to the décor along with some traditional designs like bandhani . The ceremony was made more interesting by adding some street food experience to it like golas, chaat, sugar cane juice etc. The idea was to keep it as earthy and traditional as possible. The guests enjoyed local Gujarati and Bollywood music and played garba and dandiya, a form of folk dance that originates from Gujarat. The ceremony was completed with handcrafted jewellery boxes as a return gifts.

Sangeet

A sangeet ceremony is all about both families coming together and putting up some fun performances for the couple. The families usually start preparing for these performances a month in advance, and this is kept a secret from the couple. The couple enjoys these surprise performances on the sangeet day. We had some amazing family performances. To add glitz and glamour to the occasion, we had a mind boggling  performance by our celebrity performer Khushboo Grewal. Her presence made this event an unforgettable one. She rocked the night with her oomph. As far as décor was concerned,we decided to try a unique theme, Moroccan theme. The stage, the entrance, the dance floor, table pieces everything was covered with Moroccan designs and the entire place was converted into one big Moroccan party. The celebration continued till wee hours.

There were lip smacking barbeque food items to please the guests’ taste palettes. The décor also had to be cool and soothing to the eyes. We decided to play with sky blue, greens and yellows. We kept it trendy and fun by using pompoms, lanterns and other fun props.

The Wedding

A wedding symbolises union of two hearts and their families. A day that stands for true love. A day when the couple in front of their friends and families promise to be one forever. We decided to give it an elegant, beautiful and cozy feel. We all unanimously narrowed down on a rustic theme with a combination of white and pink that stands for purity, love and affection. The mandap was beautifully decorated with fresh flowers and white draping. We used barrels, chiavari chairs, amber bulbs and candles to give it a rustic and cozy look. Not to forget the love signages, that helped add romance to the whole look. The Mandap was surrounded by a water body which was decorated with some floating candles. While the guests mingled with each other enjoying every moment of this beautiful wedding, our vocalist and guitarist Mateen Kardame entertained everyone with his mesmerizing voice. It was a perfect set up for a memorable destination wedding. The one that the guests will surely remember for the rest of their lives.

Kevin & Deepika – White Vintage Theme Wedding

White Vintage Theme Wedding

The Bride & Groom 

Kevin & Deepika are a fun loving & easy going couple who wanted to break the traditional barriers of a catholic wedding reception. They were up for a lot of creativity and loads of fun. It all began with the first meeting at a popular café joint. The couple gave us a vision of what they wanted their dream wedding to be like. Now, it was our turn to envision their dream and turn it into a reality.

The Couple’s Monsoon Pre Shoot

We started off by organizing a pre shoot for them, it gave us a chance to get to know them better and vice versa. Though reluctant and hesitant at the beginning, it didn’t take long for the couple to get comfortable in front of the camera. The groom got into the Bollywood mode and even lifted the bride, and the results were simply outstanding. Light showers added to the moment and added to the beauty of the pre shoot.

Wedding Invites & Their Magical Love Story

Now we had to start with the wedding invites. After a lot of brainstorming and too many coffees we came up with the idea of using the pictures from the photo-shoot and started working on the invite design. We used their actual love story which is nothing short of a Bollywood movie and implemented it in the invite. So the story goes like this. Kevin & Deepika met in the UK where they were doing their Post-Graduation studies. It was love at first sight for Deepika. Kevin was an easy going guy and did not think of anything then. So they continued to stay friends, being there for each other. A year later, Kevin returned to India and took up a job in his hometown, Mumbai. This however, did not stop the two from chatting, late night conversations over the phone, skype and so on. As luck would have it, Deepika decided to come down to India and since she had a connecting flight from Mumbai, they decided to meet. Little did she know that Kevin had planned to propose to her, which he did and she was all head over heels. This is how the invites turned out and everyone loved them.

Wedding Brief

The couple wanted a modern, elegant, western style catholic wedding reception. The bride wanted a lot of lights to be used (aka Light Wedding), so we started working on the décor and getting things together. After several meetings and discussion with our team, we decided to work on a White Vintage Theme Wedding. We proposed this idea to the couple and they were game.

White Vintage Theme Wedding Décor Overview

We decided to put multiple frames together to create a modern elegant look. Small touches of flower arrangements accompanied with greens, tea lights, crystals and cages added to the beauty of it. The entrance gate too was designed on the similar lines to match the theme. We used crystal strings and accompanied it with floral arrangements and cages. We wanted to create an experience for the guests while they enter the wedding venue. Hence, we had two trees on each side with white trunks and used cherry blossoms and crystals.

For the photo booth we used golden rustic frames in rectangle shape along with an oval size frame to compliment the overall look. Flower arrangements were done at the corners to add to its beauty. We used various signages both funky and elegant to add a personalised touch to the décor. The guest book are was a place where the guests had to leave their wishes for the couple. Here we used the vintage cycle, flower vase, rustic table, hats and frames as props. The outcome, simply brilliant!

White Vintage Theme Wedding Chandelier Cake

We saved the best for the last. Something everyone was in awe of. This masterpiece was designed with special attention to detail. A one of its kind, where every baker would think twice before trying their hands on this one. A Chandelier Cake, hung upside down on a chandelier cake stand. The stand was decorated with greens and small white flowers. The look of the cake was complete with a touch of gold and pearls. This was certainly a showstopper!
