Apart from the fact that this bride wore an absolute stunner of a bridal lehenga, we also love how gorgeous her mehendi looks and her haldi outfit is effortlessly chic! With an army background, and venues spanning Army grounds and with the Army Chief band to match, this wedding has a charm that just seems to grow on you. Photographed by the incredible Richa Kashelkar and Photo Zapki, and with makeup by Chandni Singh , this one is an absolute reat !
Meet Sumedha & Ankur
While they were introduced by parents, the wierd coincidence was that they worked in the same organisation. She in Mumbai and he in London. After having planned her wedding down to the last T , its no surprise that she is now a wedding blogger herself at Post Card Bride
From the bride: Even though we had over an year to think and plan our wedding, it was ultimately a typical Indian affair . Chaotic and haphazard in a good way though. Sitting in Bombay it wasn't easy planning a Delhi wedding what with the constant back and forth with the vendors/venues etc. The underlying theme of the entire wedding was FUN. We have danced so much at out own wedding that now I know it's a waste and a shame to do it any other way. We had Dilbag Singh and his group perform at the wedding after the pheras. He was amazing and kept everyone on their toes !
For the Sangeet, our theme was Candles and Blue. My father was in the Army and I definitely wanted one wedding function on Army grounds with the Army touch. In fact the Army Chief's band was rehearsing right outside the venue for the Haldi function.
I essentially did shopping for my trousseau and decided the pre-wedding outfits from there itself. I personally did not want to wear another lehenga for the sangeet so chose to wear a Jaipuri Gota Patti work saree. Jewellery was mix-matched with the outfits, some from my trousseau and some from my mother's collection. My bridal outfit from Chandni Chowk (vendor details mentioned below) was something I knew I didn't want (every bride was wearing Sabya inspired pieces). However, when I saw the original in off-white it looked so graceful I decided to get it made in Red. The second dupatta was an additional request as I knew there will lot's of dancing involved and I didn't want to be weighed down by a heavy dupatta over my head.
I had two photographers and both were brilliant choices. Richa was needless to say outstanding with her experience and her photos speak for themselves- they are stunning . Simran was however, an excellent choice as well . She was charming and lovely to have around, exceptionally talented and very accommodating. She also didn't hesitate to continue taking pics all through the event. The Make-up artist for the wedding day was Chandni Singh. I can't sing enough praises about her. She is amazing! She has done my make-up thrice now and every time she has outdone herself. My only regret about the getting the ready bit was my hair. I didn't pay enough attention to it on the wedding day - didn't go with the exact request with what I wanted; so ended up with something I wasn't entirely sure I liked.
