Sharma and Udit Mehrotra
Geetika Sharma started ‘Bride & Groom’ a wedding
exhibition when she was 19 years old—this was a decade back.
Since then she has interacted with hundreds of designers around
India. She says: “Each time I would meet a designer whose
creations I really liked, I’d visualise myself wearing it
on my Big Day. So even though I couldn’t wear all the creations
for the wedding and pre-wedding functions I picked one creation
from all my favourite designers for my trousseau.”
Geetika married Udit Mehrotra at
the Gulmohar Farms, Delhi on 23rd September, 2007. Around the same
time, she introduced the magazine Bride & Style. Udit, a telecom
specialist is a Director with Telecom firms Shyam Telecom and Spectranet.
He recently won the award for the Young Innovative Telecom Entrepreneur.
Says Geetika: “For the engagement I picked an aqua Green lehenga
from Ecru Couture by Ankur Batra. My sangeet outfit was a white
and purple kinkhwab lehenga with gold and mirror work. For the cocktail
I wore an outfit with a lot of bling from Ecru Couture. I teamed
this with a diamond and emerald set. For the wedding I chose a JJ
Valaya tomato red lehenga with traditional zardosi embroidery, and
a polki and gold set. For the reception I wore a grand pink creation
by Tarun Tahiliani with swarovski and pearl work, and a diamond
and ruby set.”
She adds: “My jewellery for the wedding was from a Delhi based
jewellery designer named Queenie. For the other functions I picked
the jewellery from a Chennai based Brand- Exotic Jewels by Bhavna
Shah.” My wedding makeup was done by Ambika Pillai.
