Chhavi and Saurabh

Elegant, Classy, and Tasteful – those words aptly describe our wedding feature for today. We are delighted to showcase this beautiful Delhi wedding by Rahul Rana Photography. The adorable couple, Chhavi and Saurabh, got married at the The Palms Town and Country Club in a traditional Hindu Punjabi wedding ceremony.

First things first. We love the gorgeous marigold decor! The mandap, decorated in hues of golds and reds, is accented by beautiful Kaliras. We adore the bride’s Sabyasachi lehenga and traditional and tasteful jewelry. With peacock embroidery and bright colors, it simply looks beautiful. The groom’s cream and maroon sherwani is super classy.

We are so happy for Chhavi and Saurabh! Love their smiles, and how radiant they look throughout the ceremony. Here’s wishing them happily ever after.

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!

Comments Off on Featured Wedding – Part 2: Smita and Sandeep cake, centerpieces, colors, decor, Featured Wedding, Lehengas and Sherwanis, overlays

After a gorgeous wedding ceremony on a beautiful summer day, Smita changed into a stunning lime green lengha. The skirt of her lengha reminds me of ever so beautiful peacock feathers. I absolutely love her kundan choker paired with the lovely “kaan chain” earrings, and just can’t get my eyes off that gorgeous ring! She completes her chic look by playing up her eyes with a gorgeous green shadow and touching up her lips with a natural gloss. I absolutely adore how the soft curls frame her face.

With the spectacular venue as their backdrop, the couple’s shots are breathtaking. I adore how the couple is lovingly gazing in each others’ eyes in all the pictures.

The fuchsia, apple green, and white decor (with gold accents) at Smita and Sandeep’s reception is fabulous! Love the tall centerpieces with gorgeous roses, hydrangeas, and greens, accented with crystal hangings. The  gold overlays look beautiful and the candles create sets the mood for the evening. The cake is decorated with green fondant roses and looks lovely. The attention to detail at this wedding amazes me. How beautiful are the guest place cards?! With calligraphy handwriting, I simply adore how the gold and magenta sari borders were used to embellish each place card.

Hope you enjoy the beautiful pictures from Smita and Sandeep’s wedding reception by True Photography Weddings.

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.

The breathtaking beauty of Taj Mahal has inspired many a poet, artist, and philosophers around the world. Taj is not just about architecture, and design, but also love, emotions, and expression. In the spirit of Taj, today we are featuring a series of Indian bridal designer wear inspired by the timeless monument.

Internationally acclaimed fashion photographer, Pravin Talan, in association with the Taj Mahotsav committee (Uttar Pradesh Tourism) initiated a unique and first of its own kind project, With Love from TAJ“. The ten-day photo shoot explored the Taj like it has never been before. It featured top Indian Designers: Rohit Bal, Tarun Tahiliani, Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Falguni & Shane Peacock, Anamika Khanna and Anand Kabra. Each of the creations reflects the designer’s unique style, interpretation and inspiration from the monument.

Talan says: “Since childhood, I have been fascinated by the lore of the Taj Mahal. After spending 30 years shooting beauties and beautiful places, I am back shooting what is ultimate in architectural elegance and a climax of perfection.”

Anand Kabra

“A constant reminder of the beauty, talent and expertise that we have to offer…a declaration of love…how can one not be inspired by the Taj?”
