A pale blue lehenga for your pheras is not a sight we see everyday , so kudos to Nayana, the bride for pulling it off so beautifully. Being a designer herself , behind the label Nayana Raheja - you could see her eye to detail in every part of this wedding. Right from brightly colored, opulent decor, to the florals spilling out of the vintage car, and the blush pink jaimalas against the tiffany blue outfit . Equal parts disney princess, and equal parts Indian glamour, this wedding was photographed by Picture Art Company .
Meet Nayana & Jai
"Jai vaguely remembers meeting me at outside a club in London - probably wasn't the best place to find love anyway, but fate had its own role to play. We first talked endlessly when we headed out to a local club after dinner at his place! We enjoyed each other`s company more than we expected - and couldn't seem to get enough.
Jai was sure that he wanted to spend his life with me - but I wasn't convinced just yet. A dozen roses, slow dancing on a cruise, being serenaded and later hovering over the beautiful city of London in a plane flown by the man himself hadn't done the trick. He reached a point where he felt like he had done all and to spare himself the heart break decided to shut me out of his life completely and went off the grid. Sometimes it takes the absence of a certain aspect of your life for you to realize how desperately important it is to you.
So I jetted off to London, stood at his door with balloons, flowers, cake and an apology hoping Jai would take me back – he didn't say yes right away, but with a little more effort we were finally an engaged couple. Jai had organised the most romantic proposal (surprise) at his place. It was supposed to be a normal dinner date at his place and when I walked inside the house, I saw he had set it up with fresh flowers and candles, not to miss Bollywood playing in the background (which is the last of what Jai would ever listen to) Jai went down on his knees and popped the million dollar question.That night I went home with a promise ring and dozen butterflies in the stomach" explains Nayana.
From The Bride:
"I wanted our wedding to be enormous (Indian weddings usually are) for our friends and family with sufficient gaps in between all the functions. Guests flew in from all parts of the world to participate in our celebrations and pretty much get the feel of a big fat Indian wedding (one of the many things India is famous for).
Months went into planning each of my look, décor and other details. I was probably the most involved bride, from cards to clothes to jewellery to décor to food to gifts to performers to dates and to hotel services, I knew the inside out of everything.
We as a couple enjoyed the wedding and paid extra attention in making sure our guests had a good time. We are glad that our happily-ever-after was exactly the way it was!" adds Nayana.
