Colorful Goa Destination Wedding With A Fun Photo Op
BY Latha Sunadh | 25 Sep, 2017
Tarasha kept it chilled out and fuss free at her wedding with a varied wardrobe, an entry where she came in dancing and lots more. Also, we spotted Sushmita Sen in this wedding looking pretty as a picture, right alongside the bride, Sonal Chauhan, Zaheer Khan, Sagarika Ghatge, Yuvraj Singh and Angad Bedi . The picturesque venue, Holiday Inn Resort Goa kept it sweet while wedding planners, Mpire Weddings made sure not a single detail was missed from hotel management to entertainment. Photography & Videography by Recall Pictures Photography took the drama up a notch with their pretty pictures!
Meet Tarasha & Nikhilesh
"We met in HK in 2010 during our MBA. From the first day we met, we hit it off as great friends and started dating each other soon after. Post MBA we both took up jobs in different countries. After two crazy years of long distance (Germany & Singapore) we finally moved to the same time-zone (HK & SG) and eventually the same country (HK). We would take flights from Hongkong to Singapore every weekend to meet each other during the long distance phase." explains Tarasha.
The Sangeet The Wedding
From The Bride:
"We wanted our wedding to be more like a big party spread across two days for all our guests (especially for our close family members) but keeping in mind the traditions/customs from our respective backgrounds. The entire wedding logistics planning was done by both of us remotely from Singapore and we were lucky to work with Mpire for the event planning. Team Mpire took care of everything like family and we reciprocated by giving them entire freedom to surprise!!!
Deviating from the norm, we also decided to invite only our close friends and relatives for the wedding and kept a 50:50 ratio of family and friends. This made sure that the ceremonies started on time (almost) and parties went on well beyond time!!!
For the wedding function, I wanted to go with the traditional red / maroon with bronze work (Sabyasachi). The mehendi was an outdoor function and I wanted a bright shade. I thought yellow was the perfect color for this occasion (Anita Dongre). For the sangeet, I wanted something subtle and semi-traditional. I went for a mint green off-shoulder lehenga (Sabyasachi). For the cocktail I wanted a subtle gold mermaid gown with intricate embroidery. Natasha Dalal understood exactly what I was looking for and did a great job with the gown. For the reception, I decided to go for a maroon ball gown by Nadine Dhody. Of course, I wanted my style for each function to be significantly different." explains Tarasha.
