The three day celebrations took place across different hotels and venues including The St Regis and Villa Corti, a lavish renaissance villa set in a small town in the Tuscan countryside near Florence. Over 500 guests flew in from all over the world to attend the luxe affair.
The wedding was managed by Mumbai’s Aditya Motwane and his team at MEW (Motwane Entertainment & Weddings) while the décor & design was conceptualized by WDC (Wedding Design Company).
The bride & groom wore creations by designers Tarun Tahiliani, Sabyasachi and Manish Malhotra. The invites were designed by Vivek Sahni Design.
Initially, the groom was to arrive on an elephant but the city’s council objected to the idea citing health and safety issues and animal welfare concerns. But that didn’t cause any hindrance to the festivities. The groom arrived atop his friends’ shoulders amid a sea of pink turbans while Popular Bollywood Singer Sukhbir belted classic shaadi songs. DJ Zubair and DJ Sameer from Dubai kept the energy levels high at all the celebrations.
The guests feasted on a lavish spread planned by Delhi’s Ritu Dalmia (Diva Restaurants) and Puneet Sikand (The Kitchen Art Co.), luxe restaurant Indian Accent and Italy based Federico Salza.
The groom’s father is one of the largest independent petrochemical distributors in the Middle East. He also owns the Raging Tiger events company, which stages a number of concerts and balls across UAE.
