Gorgeous Destination Wedding In Agra With A Stunning Bridal Solo Entry!
BY Latha Sunadh | 23 Jul, 2018 | 3086 views | 3 min read
This wedding is special for many reasons - first, the bride did a solo bridal entry with fireworks and then, her range of outfits go from fun lehengas to glam gowns and lastly, the fact that this big wedding was done without a wedding planner and just by practical ideas by the bride and the groom. There are some great unconventional outfit ideas alongside amazing brands that really speak for the bride's taste and choices - a Kiran Uttam Ghosh sari is so very offbeat, if you ask us. The venue, Courtyard by Marriott in Agra was a great choice for such a stage while photography by Gautam Khullar Photography is a riot!
Meet Savnit & Rahul
Rahul and I both belong to Lucknow and have a lot of common friends, but destiny made us meet just about 4 months before our wedding. I was in Delhi when Rahul decided to fly down to meet me on my birthday. I don't know If it was magic in his dimples or destiny, but I knew it at the end of our 5 hour long lunch date (it was out first date!) that I am ready to spend my life with Rahul!
From The Bride:
My wedding was planned in about 50 days. What worked in our favour was that Rahul and I both were very passionate about different aspects of the wedding so we divided our work. Location, Food and Entertainment belonged to Rahul and Clothes, Accessories and Decor was my department. My wedding was a close knit affair of 300 people in Agra where all the functions and our stay was at Courtyard by Marriott. We skipped hiring a wedding planner as when you do hire one, you miss attending to each detail yourself. Being a wedding enthusiast and a fashion stylist I wanted to plan every detail myself.
Our mehendi was a very simple lunch affair for which I wore a Kiran Uttam Ghosh saree and kept the makeup minimal. I discovered a really unique designer in Shahpur Jat who’s label runs by the name of, ‘Rangeelo Juno Des’ for the pool party - that was something. I picked a colour blocked lehenga for myself and a draped kurta for Rahul.
As for our wedding outfits, I was almost struck with a dejavu when I saw my wedding lehenga for the first time at Sulakshana Monga’s showroom. It was legit, love at first sight. I never wanted anything too loud yet make a statement with a pinch of classic elements (is that an oxymoron?) Rahul and I both wore Soltee by Sulakshana for the wedding. And jewellery, Araceli jewels are one of those hidden gems for excellent jewellery as I found out about during my wedding preps.
