Devika Narain & Company
A literature major from Lady Shri Ram College, Devika Narain has spent almost a decade at the forefront of luxury wedding design. Over the past years, she has left her indelible mark all over the world from Italy and Austria to Oman and Mauritius. Known as the definitive destination wedding designer in India, she is known for her international aesthetic, imbibed from working with the likes of Shane Connolly, Rob Van Helden, Kevin Lee, Vandana Mohan, Aditya Motwane and Chetan Vohra.
Today, Devika Narain is celebrated for her eclectic style and impeccable taste in design, that tells personal stories through spaces with lots of attention to detail. From intimate weddings with 100 guests in Thailand and grand 3000-guest weddings in Rajasthan, she is known to create events that personify subtle luxury.
In a span of 2 years, she has evolved from a one-man army to creating Devika Narain & Company, a niche design house based out of Delhi which brings together full-time textile designers, architects, event producers, graphic artists and client management experts that make sure that her designs are executed to the utmost detail. Devika is known for bringing together personal stories and combining them with history and art to manifest in grandiose concept-inspired settings.

In barely two seasons, Wedding Duo has painted some path-breaking designs for weddings across India. The design house is run by Vishal Chand Mehra and Aliya Vij.
Vishal Chand Mehra, an alumni of Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, London has lavishly played with colours, textures and forms surpassing boundaries. From designing shows and styling fashion shoots in London to working with Bridal Asia and conceptualizing bespoke events, art was purely an extension of his personality. His micro-designing and ability to create a feast by bringing together varied elements evoking supreme visual appeal has created many memories for his clients! He used to look after the events and promotions for his family’s award winning heritage boutique spa haveli, Ranjit’s SVAASA in Amritsar, Punjab.
Aliya Vij, a psychology graduate from Jesus & Mary College finished with a Masters in Organizational Behaviour from Warwick Business School in the United Kingdom. Post a professional stint in UK she migrated to the Big Fours of the Advisory world, to work as a consultant. It was here that she realized that she was not cut out for a desk job. It pushed Aliya out of her comfort zone to follow her heart to create and invent. Being a planner by nature and with an intense eye for detail, she easily stepped into the world of social events, co-founding Wedding Duo.
