An Elegant Goa Wedding With Cherry Blossoms And The Bride In A Silver Grey & Red Lehenga
BY Aakanksha Magan | 28 Jan, 2019
A couple in perfectly coordinated outfits, the beautiful seaside location and a bride in the most unique lehenga colour combination in 2019 so far, this wedding had us floored. Sunset hues, a sea-facing mandap, white-pink colored cherry blossom aisle, were just some of the elements that made this wedding beautiful beyond words. And, adding to the theme of charm and elegance was the bride's wedding lehenga, a stunning combination of silver - grey with a bright red dupatta. The venue, Mayfair Hideaway Resort Spa, Goa kept the soiree as fun as it comes while photography by Picsurely was as candid as it was pretty!
Meet Surbhi & Ankit
"It was Facebook where we met for the first time. A random friend request from him, a quick peek into his profile and we were friends. He was from my hometown and we had mutual friends. The very next day I came to know my mom and his mom too know each other. And that's where our initial paths crossed. And as it goes, we started texting, talking and laughing. Gradually with passing time we blended more and our love blossomed," writes Surbhi on how they met and how their story began!
From The Bride:
We were in the relationship for 4 years and post that we decided to get married. I always wanted a non-traditional beach side destination wedding and GOA was the best what we could think of. Wedding ceremony started with a Pooja which we name as 'PEELA-CHAWAL' in our JAIN culture accompanied by mehendi function in the evening. The next day morning was Haldi ceremony. Relatives were suppose to dance and speak few lines about us before applying haldi. It was great fun. Post lunch we had Pool Party. It was a blue-white colored Hawaiian theme based event. The pool party dress and makeup was based on mermaid theme and was totally self designed. Later in the day we had Sangeet in night and all our relatives of all ages came prepared with their songs and mesmerized us with their performance. The very following day morning was our wedding. The wedding decor included white-pink colored cherry blossom aisle and sea facing mandap. I would like to add special thanks to my Hubby without whose idea and concept the wedding would have not been pulled off the way I had dreamed of.
Aishwarya from Mehndi Boutique, is a highly recommended Mehndi artist. She is soft spoken, friendly and above all extremely talented person. She did a fantastic job with my mehndi. The event was delayed for around 2 hours, but she didn't loose her patience and co-operated throughout. I would highly recommend her!! MAYFAIR Hideaway Spa Resort, Goa was a serene and beautiful boutique resort in South Goa and I loved it. Their infinity pool is quite picturesque and became the spot for our pool party. The resort's staff is quite co-operative and friendly. Special thanks to Mr. Kedar, who understood our specific needs and was there to support us for everything, whether it was food menu, venue modification or any other requirement. Pratibha from PN Glam Studio is also super talented and knows her job quite well. I blindly trust her. She gave me distinct looks for each of the five functions - mehendi, haldi, pool party, engagement and wedding. She made me feel like a diva in each event. She also considered my suggestions and made sure she created the perfect looks with special attention to detail for makeup and hairstyles, both. She is not just a perfect MUA but also a very sweet spoken person with whom one can be quite comfortable. Pratibha and her team also did the makeup for my mom and sisters, and each one of them looked radiant. I saw some of Picsurely's work on Instagram and was really impressed. I got in touch with Regan and really loved his professionalism. They created beautiful memories both for pre-wedding and wedding days!!! Highly recommended professionals. Amazing team! And specially a big thanks to Regan. Prabal from PNP Entertainment has a tie-up with Mayfair. He created the best possible themes and designs by rigorously working with us and accommodating all our requests as per our theme and imagination. The decor was just splendid and came out to be exactly what we expected.
