Inspired by Madurai’s Vandiyur Mariamman temple, the decor at this wedding was an ode to South India’s culture and heritage
In an impressive fusion of creativity and execution, WeddingSutra Favorite – The A-Cube Project raised the bar at Dheeraj and Rohini’s wedding with decor inspired by ancient temple architecture that included striking installations, floral opulence and intricate elements. Capturing all the highlights of this magnificent wedding was the photography team from WeddingSutra Favorite – North Water Star.
Founder and creative director of The A-Cube Project, Ambika Gupta shares how the decor concepts were brought to life and were folded with precision, skill and a grand vision.
“Guided by groom Dheeraj’s idea of incorporating the majesty and grandeur of a traditional South Indian temple into the wedding decor and festivities, we sought inspiration from the architecture of Madurai’s Vandiyur Mariamman temple to create a lavish setup that took more than a week to finish.”
“We set up an ornate viewing gallery for close family and friends, colloquially referred to as a ‘Theppakulam’ going around the mandap. A central waterbody was strewn with rose petals and lotus flowers. Ruled by hues of red, white and gold, intricately carved pillars, brass elements and rich Indian flowers like lotus, sambandhi and tuberoses in elegant arrangements transported one to a different era.”
“Unique decor elements such as the massive interlocking chain crafted entirely of red and white flowers symbolized the ingenuity of our design concepts. The highlight, however, was the spectacular golden hand installation pouring down flowers as offerings underneath a magnificent canopy of cascading tuberoses and lotuses. Created to represent abundance and prosperity, much like the hands of Goddess Lakshmi, it signified an auspicious start to Dheeraj and Rohini’s new life.”
