Happy Wedding Wednesday! We are so excited to feature the wedding of Bollywood’s super charming actress, Esha Deol, and Bharat Takhtani, a Bandra based businessman. Esha tied the knot with her long time boyfriend Bharat on June 29th. Enjoy the inside scoop from the couple’s four day extravaganza including Sangeet, Mehendi, Wedding Ceremony, and Reception.
Esha and Bharat’s retro themed Sangeet was held on 25th June, at Hotel Lalit Intercontinental in Mumbai. The decor was in red and black, and had the retro touch of the 70s. Glittering disco balls hung down from the ceiling and created a fun ambience. Esha looked stunning in a Rocky S creation: orange and red lengha choli embroidered with real gold zari. To complete the look, Esha wore a heavy polki necklace, with pearl drops paired with matching earrings, tika, beautiful polki layered waistchain (kamarband) with polki bangles. Bharat donned a blue velvet sherwani, designed by Simone Khambatta.
Hema Malini, Mother of the Bride and Bollywood’s “Dream Girl” looked super elegant. Very befittingly, she danced to her all time hit number “Dream Girl”. The lovely bride danced to her hit numbers, “Tauba Tauba” and “Dhoom Macha Le”. Bharat rocked the party, when he danced to the super hit song “Jumma Chumma” and” Maa Da Ladla”.
Esha’s mehendi was held on June 28th at Hema Malini’s Bunglow in Juhu. The Mehendi function had a traditional South Indian decor, where the entire house was decorated with diyas, yellow flowers and incense lamps. Esha looked gorgeous in a mango colored ghagra choli designed by Neeta Lulla. Bharat wore a yellow kurta with a chocolate colored waistcoat. Mommy Hema invited famous Bollywood henna artist Veena to adorn the hands of Esha for her very special day. Esha also wore beautiful floral jewelry for her mehndi.
The love birds got married in a South Indian wedding ceremony at the Isckon temple in Mumbai. Both Esha and Hema wore specialty South Indian Kanjeevaram Saris, handpicked by Hema herself from Chennai, with traditional gold jewelry. Designer, Neeta Lulla added some modern touches to the traditional saris. The temple was decorated in a red and gold, and the pillars of the mandap were wrapped in silk drapes.
Esha and Bharat’s wedding invitation was a gold and cream metal dabba or a box with the couple’s initials “E” & “B” engraved. The box had the invitations to all the wedding functions with paintings of Radha and Krishna. The box also had ladoos, especially selected by the groom himself.
Tomorrow we will be featuring Esha and Bharat’s Reception. Stay tuned for more!
