BY Soha Kala | 15 Feb, 2019
So we know you have been dreaming of your dream wedding for a while and have your phone gallery full of screenshots from our Instagram page. But if we tell you we have found that perfect wedding where the couple brought to life every idea that you and I would love? Yep, that's what this Delhi wedding was all about! From engaging concepts and flawless planning by Baraati Inc that made us go whoa! every 5 mins, to gorgeous outfits- we are sure you'll find lots of ideas and pictures you would want to screenshot! The one thing that really caught our attention was the bride's unique Mehendi lehenga- it was delicate, chic and told a story of it's own! Absolutely striking pictures by Stories by Joseph Radhik do complete justice to the gorgeousness that this wedding was!
Meet Medha & Ritesh
"We met through common friends. They realized that we’d be a great match and got the conversation going. Our families were also involved from the get-go, and it felt really good knowing that we have their support," shares Medha.
From The Bride:
"We had a long courtship period of about 11 months. From a planning perspective, that meant we had a lot of time to do our research, make timely vendor bookings and just enjoy the whole process. Our pre-wedding shoot at Udaivilas in Udaipur, captured by The Wedding Story will always be so special to us. Fortunately for us, both Medha and I had very similar visions of how we wanted our wedding to pan out. Being a fashion designer, she has a strong aesthetic sense - so she completely took care of that bit. I, alongside my planners Baraati Inc. worked towards adding a lot of personality and individuality in each event. I wanted everyone to have the craziest time! Baraati Inc are such a creative, fun, and hands-on team to work with. They foresaw all our potential hassles and planned ahead. Our families honestly didn’t have to worry about a thing and enjoyed every moment of the wedding.
Our wedding was shot by Stories by Joseph Radhik. I had to really convince my parents to drop our family photographers, and try someone new. But honestly, after seeing their work - they understood why I was so persistent. As soon as things got finalized, the first I did was book them," shares Ritesh.
Medha adds, “I can’t thank Mrinalini Chandra enough for my customised kaliras! The wedding theme from my side was Kashmiri with shikaras and florals. So my kaliras were customised in the shape of hanging mini shikaras. Namrata Soni is the industry’s favorite for a reason - she’s not only the best at what she does, but also such a great person. My makeup for both functions was beyond flawless.”
"We also got The Wedding Story on board to shoot our wedding. The more I say, the less it is. We had already seen so much of their work, and blindly went ahead. Needless to say, they perfectly captured every emotion so authentically,” adds Ritesh.
