We love so many things about this wedding that it's hard to pick our favourite! From the amazing outfits worn by the bride, to the Mehendi and Wedding decor that was simply gorgeous- there are so many things to bookmark here! The bride was constantly involved in all the prep for her wedding and the result was that everything, from decor to the invites, was customised. We loved the creativity and the attention to detail given to each and every element of the wedding. The bride wore a flirty yellow for her Mehendi and a traditional red Payal Keyal Design bridal lehenga for her wedding- and flawless makeup by Makeup by Saakshi Takiar completed her look! Zorba Delhi and JW Marriott, Aerocity, New Delhi were the perfect venues for the Mehendi and Wedding, while Fotowalle - The Story Folks captured every moment, candid and otherwise beautifully!
Meet Shruti & Vividh
Shruti tells us about these two love birds met, and her vision as a bride, "We were classmates in junior school, lost touch and then reconnected after 13 years at a friend's wedding. Our wedding took place in July’18 in Delhi and had a fun, zesty, summer vibe. My family wanted the various elements in the wedding to be a reflection of me and my personality, so we ended up customising everything. Flowers and birds were the main theme, and the design throughout the events. It formed a comprehensive story, from the invites, flowing into the decor, outfits and to the giveaways. I've always loved birds and floral design, and that is exactly what was represented everywhere. On the wedding day, we used a lot of lotus flowers for decor and even the havankund was lotus shaped! And the pocket squares given to the men on mehendi day have the same colours and design as the wedding card leaflets with the wedding logo and date printed on the corner of the pocket square. My elder brother, Shivendra was our chief wedding planner. He wanted each event to be beautiful and sophisticated, yet fun and unique. To achieve this, he hired the perfect vendors for our wedding and took care of the minutest details personally."
The Wedding Invite
From The Bride:
We worked with Abhinav Bhagat to give the Mehendi event a refreshing yellow-green spring look at Zorba and a grand, elegant red-golden look to the wedding at JW Marriott Aerocity. Gautam Vedi created the chic Cocktail at Sanskriti Greens where DJ Sumit played till the wee hours of the morning! The wedding invites were customised by Gold Leaf with the goodies being my favourite teas from Mittal Tea House & flavoured nuts from Celeste.
Make up artist: Saakshi Takiar - Saakshi is brilliant at her job. If you want to look your absolute best, then she is the make up artist you need. All the girls who are a bit hesitant since she doesn’t give a trial- don’t worry at all and just go ahead with her. She is amazing! She reaches the venue before time, is very organised, quick with her work, very sweet to speak to and makes sure everything goes smoothly. She understands the looks you want and also gets the right hairstylist for the particular look which is very important. Highly recommend her!
Floral Jewellery: Prune - Beautiful floral jewellery. Had a great experience with them. Got exactly what I wanted and on time.
Decor: Abhinav Bhagat - Abhinav is an amazing person and even more AMAZING at his job. The best part about him is that once you book him for decor, you don’t have to worry one bit about the look of your events because it will be better than what you’ve ever imagined it to be. He will go out of the way to make sure every minute detail is perfect and help the family in every way he can. It’s been a month since my wedding and the guests still can’t stop talking about the amazing decor at my mehendi and wedding function.. was jaw dropping!
Wedding card: Gold leaf design studio - Samaira and Rupesh did a brilliant job with my wedding cards. They were very proactive and patient throughout the process and delivered exactly what we wanted. Most people who received the wedding card commented that they are “THE PRETTIEST CARDS they’ve ever seen” and absolutely loved them. Highly recommend them.
Photographer: Fotowalle- The Story Folks - Parag and Kanupriya are a pleasure to work with. They are very meticulous with the entire planning and make the family very comfortable in front of the camera. They have the art of capturing the right moments in a perfect frame making you relive those moments every time you see your wedding pics :) They covered my wedding beautifully and are fantastic at their job. I highly recommend them!
