Hidden in the heart of the bustling capital, Amaara Farms won this couple over the minute they stepped into the oasis of tranquility and lush landscapes. A fitting backdrop to a sophisticated celebration, it also formed the canvas for the bride’s cherished memories of her big day.
Bride Sakshi shared with us her love story and details from the wedding celebration.
How They Met
“We’d worked at the same office for over two years but never interacted until Cupid struck at a colleague’s engagement party. After that, casual conversations and coffees turned into long dinners and we realized we enjoyed each other’s company. Once Vineet met my friends and my sister and they told me that they liked him I warmed up to the idea of something long-term and substantial with him. He’d already impressed me with his ‘no excuses, no shying away from commitments’ attitude, and here we are today!”
“My family had already met Shivan Gupta from Amaara Farms at an event my sister hosted. He was accompanying a friend and very modestly mentioned that he had a farmhouse that was also used as a wedding venue.
At that stage, we hadn’t even begun to look for locations and this landed in our lap out of nowhere. Later, when we visited the place, Vineet and I were smitten! For the sake of creating some sort of benchmark, we visited other spaces in Delhi and Gurgaon but nothing matched what we could visualize at Amaara Farms.
After some deliberation, we decided that this was the place for us. We had a wonderful conversation with Shivan and Benny, who are extremely warm, accommodating and helpful people. From there on, everything pretty much fell into place.”
“We wanted our wedding to be simple and serene. We had a neutral palette enhanced with fresh flowers and Swarovski crystals.
Guests were greeted at the entrance by the sight of a colossal lotus installation made of brass with cascading flowers and Swarovski crystals. Vases brimming with Indian blooms on the tables accentuated the greenery at the venue. The mandap featured Indian elements like kaleereins, mogras, rosebuds and lotuses. It was the highlight of the wedding.
I’m from Jaipur and so in a nod to our traditions, I wore a four-piece Rajputi poshak from Rukhmani, Jaipur. I wore my mother’s bangles and gold choker. The rest of my jewelry was from Confluence Official, Suneet Varma’s collection. Vineet wore a Karrtik D creation.”
“Our ‘Illuminati – The Party’ themed soiree featured all monochromatic tones and the space was accentuated with green and flecks of gold.
At the entrance, we had two consoles styled with fishtail palm barks and accessories. Within the ballroom, guests saw a gorgeous rose patterned Swarovski curtain which we used as a visual block to the space. Twinkling lights glittered amidst the champagne drapes on the ceiling. We had a classic bar in a black wood that went with the high-backed chairs and tufted furniture.
The mandap from the morning was revamped to form the DJ booth! The dance floor had a custom monochromatic print. The tables, draped with raw silk in emerald green were decked with fragrant white flowers and lots of candles.
I wore a pre-draped saree from 431-88 by Shweta Kapur and the three gorgeous strings I wore around my neck are from Peomira”
