Gorgeous model Tupur Chatterjee wed Dubai businessman Sonu Shewakramani at the newly opened W Retreat & Spa in Bali. The celebrations which included the Welcome dinner & Engagement, Mehendi lunch, Sangeet, Navghari, Haldi, Wedding & Reception were held between May 13 and 15th.
Samara Melwani, our Jakarta-based correspondent tells us more: “The beautiful wedding was managed by Innayat Khubchandani, Bali’s most popular planner for Indian Weddings. Bali, is one of the hottest and most popular international wedding destinations—but what was special about this wedding, is that it was the first Indian wedding to take place at the W Retreat & Spa located within the trendy beachfront enclave of Seminyak. The wedding was a friends and family affair, and the Shewakramani’s guests flew in from all over the world. Many of Tupur’s friends from Mumbai were there too—including Vivek Oberoi and his wife Priyanka. The musical rendition by Atif Aslam at the Welcome Dinner by the pool-side was one of the highlights of the celebration.” According to Samara the guests went ga-ga about Tupur’s well chosen looks and outfits for each of the functions and her wedding lehenga appeared to be a Sabyasachi creation.
Sonu and Tupur were introduced to each other through a common friend and have known each other for less than a year. Tupur is the granddaughter of veteran film-maker Hrishikesh Mukherjee. Her twin sister Tapur is also a well-known model (their names are inspired by a famous line from Rabindranath Tagore’s poem Bishti Pore Tapur Tupur). Sonu’s family have business interests in Lagos, Nigeria and Dubai and his parents live in Emirates Hill, Dubai
