Picturesque natural backdrop? Check! Gorgeous outfits? Check! Colourful decor? Check, check, check! This boho themed wedding had everything we could have hoped to see in a celebration held in the midlands of South Africa. Arahna & Yuval, being creators and designers themselves, made sure that their wedding had unique elements, yet things that their guests enjoyed. Arahna's outfits were beautiful, from the fuschia pink she wore on her Sangeet to the gorgeously beautiful wedding lehenga she opted for her wedding. Also, we can't go on without mentioning the amazing manarkali that Yuval rocked on the wedding day as well. Elana Schilz Weddings & Kapture Studios By Yuvi K shot this stunning wedding in a breathtaking manner and we bet you'll be pinning these images for future references and inspiration!

The Jamboree (Night Before The Wedding)
From The Bride:
Owning a creative company in the design and wedding industry, called ISHK, we naturally infused our love for pattern work & culture throughout our themed events. We wanted to do things a little differently, to celebrate who we are. Our special day was fusion, where Bohemian design mingled with traditional Eastern & Western culture.
We planned it all together, the Hurdhee, Sangheet, Mendhi, Jamboree (pre-wedding get together), Wedding Ceremony & Reception, & had a great time doing it! We designed all of our own wedding stationery, props & backdrops. Artwork from the wedding invitation was expanded into all of the other stationery. Together with our designers in India, we also created our bespoke wedding outfits, inspired by our theme.
We started with a clean, minimal yet quirky Hurdhee (Haldi). The decor highlighted marigolds, with giant props as well as backdrops made of marigolds. In the evening was Gheet (Sangeet), and it was as spectacular and colourful as it gets. A massive mela themed backdrop, printed decor hangers and a Rajasthani street with custom made food & desert carts were just a few elements that made the Sangeet totally magical. We then had an intimate mehendi with literally just the closest of family and friends. After that we had a Jamboree, right before our wedding day. The decor was a subtle homage to the natural backdrops and it had a completely bohemian vibe to it. There were open fire pits, food was barbecued over fires and there was a lot of dancing and just having fun! The wedding was another gorgeous affair with live music and outdoorsy vibe. The ceremony was spiritually uplifting and we were surrounded by the love and positive vibes of our loved ones all around us!
Any wedding planning tips or advice for couples getting married?
Unleash your creativity. This is one day you get to throw a party for everyone and express yourself. Don’t follow any rules. Break them all & allow your personality to shine through to create an original experience. Don’t limit yourself to flowers and big decor pieces. There is so much you can do with wedding stationery & event props to convey your personality.
They are also affordable and original! Be on the same page with your vendors at least 3 months before the wedding in terms of exactly what you want & your budget. Do a digital Save The Date & RSVP & then you will only print invites for those attending, saving money! When things go wrong on the day, don’t worry about it. Remember, your guests don’t know what is going to happen next! Also, imperfection is everything. Just have fun and soak in all the happiness!
Kapture International - Photographer & Videographer: The owner of Kapture is Yuveer Karunchand. He is a friend of ours and we’ve had some special times together, and even toured parts of India together. Working with Yuvi is always amazing. We can be totally ourselves and he encourages natural content. We loved his calm approach, embracing our different personalities and working with us to create such original & beautiful imagery. His video blew our minds though! The unorthodox & contemporary video style perfectly suited the unusual wedding setting. The selection of music for each scene was perfect in re-creating the emotive & special moments
