Motwane Entertainment and Weddings Le Meridien Beach Plaza
The wedding planner for this lavish gala was Mumbai-based extraordinaire Aditya Motwane's Motwane Entertainment and Weddings. The celebration saw over 400 guests attending from Hong Kong, London, Mumbai, New Delhi, New York, Dubai, Singapore, and Madrid.
Monaco, which is the second tiniest country in the world, with its amazing weather, easy connectivity, spectacular venues and finest infrastructure, was the first choice for the couple who work in London. The celebrations started with a welcome party at the Night Club Jimmy'z and the mehendi function was held at Hotel Hermitage, the historic luxury hotel in the city. An exquisite sangeet was hosted at the ballroom of Le Meridien Beach Plaza, where guests enjoyed the unique sea views, the dance performances by the family and foot-tapping music by international DJs and top entertainers including the Vyas Brothers from Mumbai. On Sunday, the baraat assembled at the Casino Square from where they danced their way to the Opera House where the traditional wedding ceremony took place. The finale was a sit-down dinner at the Sporting Club, an outstanding venue for large events and gala dinners.
“With destination weddings being the hottest trend among the high society Indians, it is being seen that The Principality of Monaco, is emerging to be the most sought after and widely chosen destination for big fat Indian Weddings. The seaside luxury offers, a bouquet of quality customization options, packed with elegance, grandeur, and excitement. Be it a lavish engagement ceremony on a luxury yacht out in the middle of the sea, or a royal wedding inside one of the magnificent hotel venues or just a larger than life reception at the Grand Casino Square, Destination Monaco is a perfect blend of heritage with modern culture amidst cozy yet world-class settings. Undoubtedly, the Principality of Monaco brings to you a plethora of beautiful indulgent options, to make sure your big day is as memorable as you have always dreamt of”, says Rajeev Nangia, Director, India, Monaco Government Tourist Bureau.
Aditya Motwane the wedding planner said, “This is our 4th Celebration in the French Riviera, and we’re always delighted to plan weddings and social events in this destination. The first we planned here in Monaco was Kajal Fabiani’s Wedding in March 2011, we’ve planned Grover’s wedding in Cannes after that in October 2013, and we’ve planned a handful of other social functions in the Chantilly area. It’s always a wonderful experience for us, and Monaco, in particular, is the perfect balance of glamour and an Uber chic address, with venues that have played host to the most prestigious concerts, awards and sports events. For instance, the Sporting Club, the venue for the final sit-down dinner has been host to concerts of greats including, Madonna, Frank Sinatra, Lionel Ritchie and the likes. Also, Jimmy’z where we had the first welcome party, and many of the after-parties, is the party-spot for the whose and who, of Monte Carlo. To have options in venues like these, and be able to privatize them makes for a great advantage for high-profile wedding celebrations like these.
Monaco has always welcomed us with open arms, whether it is for exclusive venues, or even support within the destination. For example, the popular Casino Square was made available and blocked exclusively for this wedding, for the baraat procession. The only other time this block is cordoned off is for the Grand Prix in Monaco. The city’s Finance Minister was personally there to welcome the couple to the destination to celebrate their wedding. With support like this, it’s only natural for us to go back to such a destination and recommend it to more of our clients!"
Sheetal Munshaw, Director, Atout France, India, said,"France holds tremendous appeal as a wedding destination by and large and is gaining in popularity significantly for the Big Fat Indian Wedding. Over the last few years, France has played host to several high profile Indian weddings with great aplomb. Its wealth of exquisite venues ranging from emblematic chateaux and monuments to iconic hotels, picturesque locales and state of the art facilities make it a preferred choice for hosting grandiose weddings. The French art de Vivre and savoir-faire, its heritage of wine and gastronomy, its extraordinary repertoire of world-renowned flagship events and prowess in the domain make France a natural choice. Moreover, France today is more attuned to the specificities of Indian weddings and is adept at catering to the different needs and requirements that accompany an Indian wedding. The Indian wedding industry is a burgeoning industry with many families preferring to opt for destination weddings. We are optimistic that our destination will be a strong contender with its diverse offering, strategic location and seamless connectivity from multiple hubs out of India as well as the efficacy of the visa facilitation procedure".
