Lehengas, skirts with shirts and even a gown, we thought we'd seen it all when it came to Mehendi outfits, but Gurleen showed us there's always something new on the horizon. She wore a pretty pastel sharara for her mehendi with complimenting floral jewellery and gorgeous waterfall earrings in a contrasting colour. Needless to say, she slayed the look. Even for her wedding, Gurleen rocked a totally unique and offbeat colour, green! She amped it up with a peachy second dupatta and proved that green is a good colour for a bride after all! Ayush Agarwal Photography captured Gurleen & Lakshya's impeccable looks and adorable moments, perfectly! Scroll down to see this dapper couple look perfectly coordinated on their wedding functions!
Meet Gurleen & Lakshay
The Wedding & Reception
From The Bride:
I wanted the wedding to be a perfect blend of love, magic and joy and I’d refer it more as a celebration of true love. The vibe through each element was playful, romantic and super fresh. My whole vision was to experiment and make the whole wedding very personalised.
I clearly avoided the reds and traditional colours for all my functions. I went with the mandate that every single element must represent "us" and not be there simply because of tradition or expectation. I can't stress how important it is to surround yourself with love and good energy on this important day. In true sense it was a 3 day buddymoon.
I took a lot of inspiration in terms of decor, wedding outfits and other tiny personal details from WedMeGood. It really helped me sail through the planning very smoothly.
The venue was like a huge valley and I wanted to keep it natural with lots of warm lights. We kept it classy with scintillating fairy lights and elegant drapes. Each vendor from decor to food to makeup to photography, are absolutely on point.
I steered clear all the reds and traditional colours on my wedding functions. I wore a pastel pink and blue sharara by Manvi Kapoor for my mehendi. I kept the look easy,super fun and super fresh. I styled my look with customised Fooljhadi earrings, floral haath phools by prune and needledust juttis. For my engagement party I didn’t want a conventional outfit. It had to be a mix of high fashion. Going ahead with Falguni & Shane peacock was no brainier for me. The way their outfits fits your body is indescribable. For my bridal lehenga I started looking around almost 7-8 months before. I visited Shyamal and Bhumika and the first lehenga I tried I fell in love with it. I was sure from the start that I do not want to wear reds or pinks for the big day. I didn’t know which colour I will go ahead with but all I just can’t be any shade of reds or pinks. I narrated my precise vision and style to them. There’s a poetry and magic in all their outfits. I picked up the silhouette, colour swatches, design swatches to get the outfit I envisioned. The final piece came out so well that I couldn’t have imagined it any better.
Lakshay has always been very particular about his attire and looks. So choosing the perfect outfits for him was no cake walk. Lakshay’s style has always been classy with a twist element to it. He wore a QBIK outfit in blue with Gucci loafers for mehendi. Corneliani black tux with Christian Louboutin patent shoes. And a Falguni & Shane Peacock sherwani in fawn undertone for the wedding with brown Sabyasachi Juttis.
Baikunth Farms was our venue for wedding and cocktail. I wanted an outdoor location for my cocktail and wedding functions. The property has the perfect layout for weddings, very beautiful and well maintained.
The Photographer Ayush Agarwal Photography and his team, who were just a part of the family on those days and ensured that every moment was beautifully captured. They are really the best in all true sense. I first saw Ayush's work at my cousin's wedding. Their work stood out by a mile and I knew that I have to hire them for my own wedding. We felt that the team really made great efforts to know us and made sure that the wedding pictures and videos reflected our personalities. The team was very passionate and cooperative through out the wedding. Everything was on point from our communications to the final deliverables. We can't thank and recommend Ayush and his team enough.
Makeupjoynie as my make up artist totally understood my style and gave me the look I had imagined on all the functions. The best thing was she kept me looking like myself yet the most special version. I felt confident, special and on top of the world through the wedding. I had a great time having her on my wedding functions. She translated my vision into reality. I am so glad I chose Joynie for my big day. Joynie you are not only an amazing mum but also a lovely lady. I had a great time working with her. I wish her all the success the world has to offer.
My wedding lehenga by Shyamal & Bhumika was so different and exactly how I wanted. From day one I wanted an unconventional green lehenga. I was looking for something which was Regal, classy but not too heavy at the same time. Their sales executive Kusum in Delhi is just amazing. She helped us customizing the outfit as per our style and taste. The staff is very sweet and friendly made my wedding lehenga shopping experience super easy. Thank you once again for making my dream lehenga. I would recommend them over and over again!
Maha Luxmi Tents handled my decor! If you are looking for a dream wedding suiting your flavour, style and expectations Maha Luxmi are the way to go. Their decor, themes, stalls, entrance creativeness were the highlights of the event. Very professional and polite. Cheers guys!
