This creative Chennai Wedding had new-age elements in it, right from a circular stage to transparent mandap pillars!
Every couple wants something unique at their wedding, and a lot of creativity and thought goes into planning the diverse functions. WeddingSutra Favorite – The Bridal March & Co. conceptualized this Chennai wedding with clever elements such as transparent mandap pillars so nobody’s view of the couple got blocked during the pheras.
The mehndi was visualized as a ‘Boho Fiesta,’ and featured a mix of Mexican and bohemian elements that inspired guests to let their hair down and relax. Exclusive seating areas were furnished with cane armchairs, swings, and stools under a multicolored canopy. Adding a dash of Mexican culture were the potted cacti and taco stall that guests flocked to. Held at the Taj Fisherman’s Cove Resort & Spa, this event was a breezy affair in a beautiful setting.
Meera Ravishankar of The Bridal March & Co. shares, “For the sangeet, we strayed off the beaten path with a circular stage that had a blend of geometric prints and had a variety of foliage and dreamy chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. With the theme being ‘Foliage Paradise,’ the venue was decorated with green leaves with bright pink flowers that added a pop of color.” To make sure that nobody was facing the back of the dancers, the performances were choreographed keeping the radial stage in mind. With the bride and groom entered the venue playing the traditional dhols, this ceremony commenced with a heady beat and merry spirits.
‘Ombre Dreams’ was the theme for the big day, and the decor followed a charming floral theme that went along beautifully with the coastal venue. Adorned with ombre floral arrangements and reflective surfaces that mirrored the blue sky, the wedding venue was bathed in gentle sunlight. Meera says, “The mandap was a pure floral creation with unique transparent pillars that made sure everyone got panoramic views of the couple as they took their pheras.”
“The place was designed exactly how we wanted, actually even better! Meera is extremely creative and does exactly what’s shown.” says the bride tribe.
The post-wedding sit-down dinner was a step away from tradition, and involved subtle Western glamor with the theme ‘Romantic Reds’. With scarlet blooms dotting the tables on the lawn and the main canopy, almost everything had a touch of red. Glittering crystal chandeliers and a canopy of golden lights added life to the venue as the couple took to the stage for their first dance as man and wife. Adding an aura of romance to the night were the elegant candlelit tables that were decorated with roses.
