Former cricketer and businessman V Chamundeswaranath’s son, Sravan Prasad’s city wedding to Swathi Priyanka was the talk of the town, with a star-studded guest list and riveting wedding decor to boot. Vividly conceptualized and executed by WeddingSutra Favorites – Baraati Inc. and DreamzKrraft respectively, the stunning details of the wedding are sure to find their way onto your Pinterest board.
The couple’s high profile wedding had the who’s who of Hyderabad in attendance, including notable politicians, celebrities, industrialists and more. For a celebration befitting their vision and requirements, they brought in Baraati Inc. for their expertise in planning exclusive, luxurious celebrations while the team of DreamzKrraft executed the decor of each function to perfection.
Bride Swathi had a very elegant vision for the wedding and she worked closely with her wedding planning team to bring it to life. Shedding light on what it takes to conceptualize a grand wedding affair, the team of Baraati Inc shares, “It was the second wedding we were planning with their family, so we had a crystal clear understanding of their expectations and our deliverables. With a high profile celebrity guest list to cater to, it was important to ensure a stress-free and safe environment for everyone so they could enjoy the celebrations without any hassle. Our bride also had a very strong understanding of how she wanted her wedding to look and feel, which helped us to seamlessly create a sophisticated affair that looked grand and felt intimate. The groom’s and bride’s mothers were also very particular about ensuring traditional Telugu elements were incorporated throughout the wedding decor. We had local artists from their native village do a few elements for the poojas and rituals, that the decor team incorporated in the bigger picture of their design mood board to implement it seamlessly.
Moreover, with the wedding being celebrated amidst Covid, everyone’s safety was paramount and we worked tirelessly to ensure a seamless guest management experience while adhering to the government guidelines, with backup plans in case of any last-minute changes. Most of the wedding was planned over the phone and video calls, and we flew back and forth between Hyderabad and Delhi 8 times to ensure every last detail of the planning would be in place, from individual event conceptualization and designing to developing their custom stationery design, hospitality, artist management, and on-ground execution and coordination.”
The wedding was hosted across a variety of locations in Hyderabad, and their special moments were immortalized by the talented team of Studio A Weddings.

Marigolds ruled the decor in several forms, from flower vase arrangements to canopies, installations and backdrops. Earthen pots and vases added to the traditional feel of the occasion, while brightly colored flowers further added to the yellow paradise.
