Scenic Wedding By The Backwaters At Crowne Plaza Kochi With A Unique Couple Entrance

BY Sakshi | 04 May, 2022 | 4185 views | 4 min read

Now here is a destination wedding which was effortlessly elegant! Everything about it, right from the serene venue by the backwaters, to the crazy pool party, to even the cozy and love-filled vibe of the wedding made it so memorable! The couple entered their nuptials in a very unique way- in a houseboat which was all decked up to enter with swag! The venue, Crowne Plaza Kochi served as the perfect backdrop for this pretty party, and we are in awe of the setting, which has just the right mix of luxury and nature.

Meet Ankita and Dhruv

We met at IGRUA (Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Udaan Akademi) where my father was working as a Chief Flying Instructor and he was the Assistant Flying Instructor. We met at a party and instantly hit it off. We were in a long distance for 2 years when I was working in Vietnam but with the onset of the pandemic, I moved back to India and we decided on forever :)




From The Bride:

Our wedding was on 5th February, 2022. We never thought of having a destination wedding, but when the possibility of doing it in Kochi came up, we jumped. Given that most of our family had not travelled in two years, we wanted to give them an invigorating experience. The coconut trees and the backwaters made for the perfect backdrop. We also love open spaces so we hosted our haldi and the wedding ceremony under the blue skies amist green bushes and trees.

Vendor Reviews

Venue: Crowne Plaza, Kochi

We could not have asked for a more sincere, dedicated staff. They treated all our wishes as their commands and left no stone unturned in ensuring that our guests have a comfortable, delightful and enjoyable stay. We got excellent feedback about the food and can personally vouch that the food options and quality were top notch!

Makeup Artist: Anjali Gokul

I don’t have enough words to thank her. She dolled me up to be a bride of my dreams. She waited patiently through my many events without throwing any unnecessary tantrums. Her support through the events meant a lot and I am indebted to her.

Wedding Planning and Decor: Red Carpet Events

Our decoration and wedding planning was done in part by the Hotel and by Red Carpet Events. We were in touch with Mr Manoj who delivered as per expectations. He also added certain elements by himself. More than that, I am grateful to him because he was available throughout. He had a big role to play in ensuring that our events went off smoothly.

Our decoration was done by Red Carpet Events. We were certain that we wanted decoration that would not take away the beauty of the place, but amplify it. Mr Manoj ensured that the elements used were complimenting the surroundings!

Photography: Palette Media

Mr Rahul did our pre-wedding shoot which was a big success. Since then, we were eagerly looking forward to getting clicked by him. He was responsive to all our needs and accordingly adjusted his strategies. We are professionals, but he made sure that we feel comfortable in front of the camera. The result is for the world to see. But I am just so glad that we chose him to be our official photographer.

Mehendi Artist: Rehash Henna by Nadeera Afzal

Her designs were quite intricate and the mehendi used was of a superior quality. She actually took the time to understand my likes and made a design to my liking.
