This week we are featuring a beautiful Sindhi – South Indian fusion wedding of Radhika and Vikas photographed by Shreya Sen Photography. We are kicking this off with their Mehndi and Sangeet Ceremony.

The beautiful Mehndi and Sangeet of Radhika and Vikas infused the traditions from North and South India. Radhika looks gorgeous in a brocade purple lengha, which is shorter in length, and is paired with a bright red choli and a gorgeous yellow dupatta. The outfit was designed by Sister of the bride, Aarti, herself. Loving the bride’s gorgeous mehndi, and all the pretty colors and props used at this event.

Now you all know how much I love Marigolds. I feel it totally sums up the essence of Indian weddings, which are all about traditions, families, fun, and gorgeous colors. When I saw Radhika and Vikas’s Mehndi/ Sangeet photos, it was not a surprise, that I totally fell in love with their gorgeous Marigold decor, and how the families came together in a super fun celebration for the lovely couple. Got to love these Memorable Marigold Moments!

Stay tuned – we will be back tomorrow with their beautiful South Indian wedding ceremony!

The pictures of Smita and Sandeep’s wedding look like they are out of a fairytale storybook. Smita looks like a beautiful Princess, and Sandeep like a charming Prince.  I adore how happy both Smita and Sandeep look in all the pictures.

The couple got married in a Hindu wedding ceremony at a beautiful outdoors venue, which is very reminiscent of a Mediterranean Estate. I love the colors that the bride chose for the wedding – absolutely perfect for a summer wedding.

Smita’s bridal ensemble is so well put together! From her stunning lengha, beautiful mehndi, lovely jewelry, and pretty bangles – everything is so well coordinated and looks amazing! The lengha has beautiful zardozi embroidery and kundan details. I simply love how the tikka compliments her gorgeous face.

And how lovely is the apple green and fuchsia decor?! The aisle, which is covered with rose petals and decorated with beautiful floral arrangements, leads up to a breathtaking wedding altar. The mandap has a beautiful golden canopy and the pillars are draped in roses and hydrangeas.

Enjoy the beautiful pictures from this wedding by True Photography Weddings. Stay tuned, coz tomorrow we will be back with their stunning Reception pictures.

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.

Wedding Sangeet

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”. Read more »
