Christian weddings have a charm of their own, and this one was special because not only was it planned by the couple themselves entirely, but we loved how the venue stood out so beautifully- away from the chaos of Mumbai by the beach and done up perfectly for an intimate wedding which looked dreamy! The bride looked gorgeous too, with her long tail lace gown and we loved the favour ideas they came up with. Aaron and Vanessa had a sweet wedding, and have an even sweeter love story. Check it out.
Meet Aaron & Vanessa
Aaron & I knew each other for a year before we began dating, we barely dated for 3 months and then had to leave India for jobs in 2 different countries. Uncertain about what the future had in store for us but certain that we were going to make this work we took off. The nature of his job was such that we'd only speak once a month, maybe twice if we were lucky but nothing more. We'd meet twice a year and that was all we longed for and looked forward too! Fast forward to 5 years later, it was the December of 2018 and as i landed back in Singapore, from a work trip to Australia, I was astounded to see the love of my life waiting there for me, the next day he took me on a date to a beautiful restaurant overlooking the ocean and there, he asked me to marry him! I truly was the happiest girl in the world and of course i said YES! Thinking about that day still brings butterflies to my tummy. We decided to get married in Mumbai, a year later.
From The Bride:
Our love story to us was truly like a fairytale and we wanted to share this with our guests too, for them to feel like they have walked in to a fairy tale. With Aaron in the UAE, me in Singapore and the wedding in Mumbai, we knew it would've been a lot easier to engage a Wedding Planner but we wanted to add our own touch to our wedding and hence decided against it and honestly for us it was the best decision ever!
We enjoyed the entire process. We went over all the details very closely, big or small. We knew what we wanted each bend and corner to look like. We had personalised mini wine bottles for our guests, for when we raised the toast and champagne glasses with personalised illustrations for the bridesmaids, groomsmen and ourselves, a Shawl counter considering it was going to be cold and flip flops for the ladies so they could ditch their heels and dance the night away with us. For our wedding favours we wanted something that would remind our guests of us as also something that wouldn't just turn into a dust collector and so we thought of wooden table calendars! Engraved with our names & wedding date with an Acrylic Illustration of us that everyone loved. We enjoyed planning every bit of our Wedding and were Blessed to have our friends,family and all our Fabulous Vendors to help and support us throughout which made this experience so much more special.
