The world is divided into two brides, the ones who follow trends and the ones who change the course of bridal style with their ideas. Meghna belongs to the latter. How do we know? Did you check out her fab tassles maatha patti at her Mehendi? You bet. One look at her attention to detail and you are floored. Also, loved the metallic kanjeevaram saree and all the other little details ! Photography by Morvi Images was so delectable and captured the candid moments well. And oh, the wedding was in Ooty - a pretty damn good choice!!!
Meet Meghna & Parag
The South Indian Wedding
From The Bride:
"Parag and I got married in Ooty. It is called the Queen of Hills and what better place can I look for, for my big day. After finding the venue which was a major task, next step was to get the wedding invites ready. I did rigorous search on the WMG app and found the best vendor (Perfect Invites). I wanted to customize everything and add the elements of Ooty into the mix.
My Mehendi started with an afternoon of colours, pom poms, some shor sharaba, karaoke, kite flying and total masti. Parag escorted me to the venue by playing full energy Punjabi style Dhol and that was my entry. Sangeet was with starlit skies, lots of glitz & glam, music, wine and everything fine. Our Entry had our family dancing who then led us to the venue. We even had quirky things for guests to check-in. I had our illustration from wedding insert framed and people had to leave their thumb impressions on the frame.
For a South Indian wedding, we had a Baraat that went from uphill to downhill on a horse. That was one hell of a ride for Parag. Guess the horse got high and started dancing for the Punjabi beats as well ;) We took their holy vows with the crimson sky and the frosty winds as witnesses and the mountains as our guardians. We gave all the guests a card with the rituals explained because I am from south and he is from north - there were a mix of telugu and Punjabi rituals." adds Meghna.
"My mehendi outfit had a boho chic look. The lehenga had abstract patch work and the blouse had pom poms in it. Parag wore a mustard kurta for the Haldi and later on for the telugu ritual, he wore dhoti with grey waist coat to complement my saree. I think this was one of the best outfits he wore according to me. :) After playing with lots of colour for the mehendi, I wanted to look classy and elegant for my wedding. I didn’t want to wear the usual red lehenga, so I went all gold for my wedding. Parag wore a golden sherwani with a turban. It was perfectly made by Puneet and perfectly complemented my attire." adds Meghna.
