Know more in the excerpts below -
You have planned many high-profile celebrity weddings. How do you go about with the conceptualization of the wedding and planning after you receive the mandate and brief from the client?
A client’s initial brief of the event is usually the first stepping stone in any wedding. The initial brief is the client’s vision of how they visualize their special day. First and foremost, our highly capable team starts by sketching the most extraordinary ideas to meet the client brief. The conceptualization of any high-profile celebrity weddings is usually very interesting. When we combine creativity with strategy, we can convert the client’s vision into reality. In high-profile celebrity weddings though, there’s another aspect that we need to consider I.e. keeping the client’s privacy and integrity intact.
Share some insights and anecdotes from the experience of celebrity weddings.
Since our clients are celebrities, and are so loved and respected, we treat them with that extra bit of attention. We make sure to amplify the security factor so as to make sure that our client’s wedding is grand, but yet, intimate and private. Due to the high level of confidentiality we have had to get our vendors and artistes sign NDAs and be very private about the work they do. Celebrity weddings are all about intimacy and glamour and we make sure to play our part.
Now, with the Government easing COVID restrictions, are people asking for big fat weddings or limited guest ceremonies? What is your sense of how things will pan out?
Our clients, just like us, believe that “Small is the new big.” Even though the Covid restrictions are being eased out, our clients have been very careful and responsible. Most of our clients do prefer intimate wedding ceremonies but they will never settle for less pizazz.
What are some wedding and event trends to look out for in 2021?
2021 is all about planning the tiniest details and making them personal in any way possible. From the color to the theme, the floral decoration to the personalized safety kits and gifts and getting everyone involved in their special day is our way to go about this year. Personalization is key.
How do you plan to execute weddings post-COVID and what will be your focus for future initiatives? What next?
Post-COVID, we plan on going back to organizing larger-than-life wedding celebrations, but we would make sure we do it in the most healthy and safe way possible. Even though the covid restrictions have been eased, we still believe in taking the right precautions as our clients' and guests' safety have always been our topmost priority.
