The A-Cube Project took luxury a notch higher by giving tradition a glamorous twist for this couple’s reception with a Sheesh Mahal-inspired decor!
Deeply rooted in tradition with a dash of contemporary elements, the wedding and reception of Sowndarya Visalachy and Niranjan Shiva looked straight out of a modern fairytale. A union between two prestigious industrialist families based in Chennai, with the bride’s side owning the Tamil Television network Raj TV and the groom hailing from the family that owns SRM Group of Institutions, these events were the epitome of luxury.
Decorated, styled, conceptualized, and planned by WeddingSutra Favorite – The A-Cube Project, this wedding was needless to say, a lavish affair!
WeddingSutra Favorite- Izhaar by Core Designs handled the impressive creativity with the invites which opened up the doors to the guests and gave them a glimpse of the beautiful celebrations that awaited them. On the videography front, WeddingSutra Favorite – House on The Clouds skillfully captured every memory and emotion of the big day.
Taking a cue from the iconic Sheesh Mahal in Jaipur, the festivities commenced with a glitzy reception that had everyone completely spellbound. Ambika Gupta, founder and CEO of The A-Cube Project shares, “For this event we took inspiration from the majestic Sheesh Mahal which exudes a regal aura of a bygone era. Since both, Sowndarya and Niranjan, were planning on donning outfits that looked royal, we thought this would be a great way to tie everything together. With mosaic panels and reflective surfaces set amongst gracefully curving arches and carved pillars that echo the ones you see at the mahal, the decor was regal but had a contemporary edge to it nonetheless. Silver, white, and gold dominated the color palette while mirrors paired with velvets added an interesting texture. Furthermore, dramatic crystal chandeliers nestled amongst the delicate white blooms that were suspended from the ceiling, gave the venue an ethereal vibe.”
Next in line was the duo’s big day for which The A-Cube Project crafted the décor. It was highly influenced by Sowndarya and Niranjan’s Tamilian heritage. Sharing how she brought the wedding to life within a tight timeline with the able support of her team, Ambika shares, “We had just eight hours in hand to transform the reception stage into a mandap that would host the wedding. To ensure the smooth transition, we had multiple teams working together. We added pillars with traditional Indian carved detailing along with blooms in hues of red and pink to give the wedding a regal look. The mandap was accessorized with a hand mudra installation that expressed the Tejas Mudra, a symbol of brilliance that added to the auspicious proceedings. Floral chandeliers along with crystal ones hung from the ceiling, tuberoses lined the aisle while the three ornate idols of deities blessed the couple.
The best was kept for the next morning with a 21 piece sitar symphony mesmerizing the guests and leaving them with happy memories!”
