Well known wedding planners Mpire Weddings executed the beautiful pastel-themed wedding of world billiards champion Pankaj Advani and celebrity make-up artiste Saniya Shadadpuri from January 5to 7, 2021 in Mumbai, while implementing a strict set of safety measures mandated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The three-day event kicked off with a Sangeet Sundowner event at the Gallops restaurant at the Mahalaxmi Racecourse, Mumbai. Donning a tuxedo and a shimmery crimson gown, Pankaj and Saniya painted a pretty picture against the lush green backdrop, floral décor, and fireworks for the Sangeet gala. Later, for their wedding pheras at the Gurudwara Dhan Pothar, Santacruz, the couple looked picture perfect surrounded by their loved ones against a floral backdrop with a theme of pastel. The celebrations concluded with a cocktail night held at the Dashanzi, JW Marriott, Juhu.
Safety measures included social distancing and minimal touching, use of masks, gloves and face shields – all integrated into the rituals. Whether it was early handover of the sanitised venue set-up or carefully organized seating plan, the Mpire Weddings team ensured it all while organising the couple’s momentous wedding.
Speaking about the wedding, Vikram Mehta, Executive Director, Mpire Weddings said, "It all started from a random recommendation from a friend. Since Saniya was in the same industry it was easy to speak to her and come to a common page. She has the kindest family and my team and them worked together coherently through the preparation phase. I was fortunate to meet Pankaj few weeks before the wedding when he flew to Mumbai. As expected from a champion he was calm, precise and specific in what he wanted. His humility is the part that stands out the most and is a lesson for anyone striving for greatness. The love and bond that we all share transcended onto the quality of wedding celebrations."
Pankaj Advani took to Instagram to thank the team that put together the wedding. He captioned a picture of him with his bride at the Gurudwara: “What a magical day this has been, wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing team that pulled it off together in these uncertain times! A big shout out to the entire team.”
A social media post from Mpire Weddings said, “What we learnt from this wedding is that action is the antidote to fear. We navigate uncharted waters with imagination and vision combined, and that’s how we successfully delivered for world billiards champ @pankajadvaniofficial and celebrity MUA @saniya_shadadpuri.”
