Milestones to Memories Puneet Gupta Invitations
The only expectation that the families had from us was to create a great experience for all the guests while they are in Bahrain to attend the wedding.
With a lot of planning and brainstorming with the family for almost five months and multiple recces. The schedule was designed accordingly to make it a great combination of great hospitality, relaxation, fun and great moments for all at all points. We ensured to incorporate the local experience too. All functions were held at different locations with different themes, cuisines, artist and most importantly each one was very unique.
Day 01 – December 15th 2018
As the guest arrived into Bahrain and drove to the magnificent and architectural statement - Four Seasons Bahrain Bay Hotel. On check in they all celebrated the Haldi function. Followed by the Royal Baraat that lasted for 3 hours - the beautiful weather enhanced the energies of the guest who couldn’t stop dancing to the dhols and to DJ Aman Nagpal’s special Baraat music.
The varmala was held in the beautiful lawns of the Four Seasons, wherein the bride’s entry was the highlight, as she came on a boat - the groom received her at the jetty until the Varmala stage.
The wedding ceremony was conducted on the newly built beach of the hotel. The mandap was unique and contemporary to match the ambience.
The entire atmosphere was serene and had an emotional high for all, with Vidhi Sharma’s live singing and chants. The occasion was blessed by the presence of H.E. Shaikh Khalid Bin Humood Al Khalifa.
As the couple was declared husband and wife, the fireworks began and looked spectacular as all the guests and the couple rejoiced watching it.
At dinner, we had the super talented Amit Gupta perform and entertain all guests.
All guests put on their dancing shoes to rock the after party, which took place on the terrace of 51st floor of Four Season. One could not ask for a better venue to get a 360-degree view of the island. DJ Aman played the best of 70’s and 80’s to set in the retro feel, of course followed by the popular and must have part tracks.
Day 2 – December 16th 2018
The Manama souk is the most authentic souk on the island with craftsmen who yet make the most traditional artefacts. We wanted our guests to not miss this experience so we created a souk in the hotel itself. The craftsmen displayed their goods and made it there itself. The famous pearls, local spices and oud were a part of this souk. The decor was so authentic as per its theme, that the guest just could not believe that they were in the ballroom of Four Seasons and not in a true souk. The photo op that had the traditional costume was a fun thing for all guests and none missed the opportunity to take pictures for their social media.
The belly dancers added to the flavour of the theme and ensured the guests were taught some moves like them. This afternoon was setting the high expectations with all guests, for the evening.
The sangeet evening was at an outdoor location by the sea with the view of the skylines of Bahrain and the weather being perfect for an outdoor party. The decor theme was Lucid Metal, with beautiful metal installations in shades of glossy grey and silver with bright yellow flowers. The decor looked the most stunning. Sachin Jigar along with Divya Kumar ensured that all guests were on the dance floor. The site here was overwhelming, seeing all dance. DJ Aman ensured that none stop dancing post Sachin Jigar’s performance. This went on till the wee hours, to say the least.
Day 3 – December 17th 2018
To ensure the last day had to have the high moments, we took all the guests to Bahrain International Circuit wherein everyone was divided in six teams to enjoy the day with different activities and games that were organised for them. The theme was named La Familia. The atmosphere was fun, competitive, one could sense the adrenaline rush, as the teams competed against each other in the games zones that were created and the ultimate highlight being the go karting race. The cheering, the fun, the enthusiasm created moments that all guests have taken back as memories. This was a unique day out experience and the guest did not fail to mention the same, as they were heading back to Four Seasons by evening.
The reception, this evening was a formal affair with the decor itself being classy and chic. All men were in black tuxedos and women in blue gowns. The couple popped the champagne, followed by heart-warming speeches from the immediate family.
