Working with the brief of creating something fantastical, Devika Narain & Company drew from elements of the Indian baraat, circus and other mystical fables to create this spectacular Royal Sangeet at the Mehrangarh Fort, Jodhpur earlier this year.
The fort was divided into multiple areas and each section was created as a separate space.
Pre-function cocktails happened at the entrance, after which guests were led by drums and fanfare in an elaborate procession to the ramparts, just in time for sunset. The entire fort was lit and dotted with diyas.
Sundowner and cocktails happened on the first rampart, from where they viewed a performance set against the backdrop of the fort!
The dinner area was created like a lush oasis with tables overflowing with flowers and fruits.
The arches were draped with rich velvets and revealed a large bar fashioned like a French carousel with life-sized floral animals.
The Post Party was almost like a masquerade, where guests were handed masks and led into the Zenana Baodi where a giant gold dance floor was set in the middle of the beautiful arches.
