This destination wedding welcomed 300 guests from all over the world. The Iyar family from California is one of the renowned families back in California, who decided to get their first daughter Leena, married in Bangalore as they had also got married in the same city. The emotional connection with the city brought them to India for the grand wedding celebrations of Leena and Kartik.
The event was conceptualised and designed by Panache Events & Entertainment, while the decor was designed by Celebrations - Mushtaq Ali.
Day 1: Ganesh Pooja had a simple yet elegant décor in peach and white colours. Later was a Greet and Meet dinner at the Poolside adorned with Moroccan Night theme and house music. The ambience had to be simple yet powerful as this was an evening to welcome the entire guest to the wedding.
Day 2: Mehendi was styled with colourful flora n fauna touch. There were activities like tarot card reader, live jewellery making, caricature artist, Palmist etc to keep the guest engaged.
The entrance passage was gorgeously decorated with floral elements. The venue also had a different style of seating for guests for a unique yet stylish appeal. With faux grass carpeted flooring, the décor of the venue had a nice natural touch.
The Sangeet was on the same day, later in the evening. It had a Sheesh Mahal - sufiyana theme with an end to end panels in the Leela Palace ballroom to create the look for Sheesh Mahal. The stage was made with mirror mosaic; we had family performances and Hariharan to light up the evening for the family.
Day 3 was the Wedding - A traditional south Indian wedding followed by sitting a down lunch. The wedding took place at Jamawar while the lunch was served at the Royal ballroom of Leela Palace. The groom walked with a royal maharaja band with his friends to the mandap while the bride walked with her family in procession. There was a Ganga Aarti performed once the tali Mangalsutra was tied to bless the couple and create the aura of the wedding.
Day 3 was the Reception day. The theme was British Royal Charm with lots of red roses. After a royal wedding affair, we had a winter wonderland reception. Theme colours were white with blue ambience lights. The whole idea was to have a western style reception. There were family speeches followed by couple dance and cake cutting.
The wedding was conceptualised keeping in mind the unique style and themes selected for each wedding function.
