This grandiose Sabyasachi inspired Engagement at ITC Grand Chola was a celebration of all things royal
Sushindri and Darshan’s engagement was a lavish affair hosted at the imperial property of ITC Grand Chola in Chennai. The palatial venue was transformed into a luxurious haven that was inspired by the spirit and aesthetics of the quintessential bridal label, Sabyasachi. Here are a few glimpses from the celebrations.
Sushindri says, “The entire event, down to the tiniest detail, was conceptualized by my fiancée and me, and executed perfectly by Malli Wedding Planners. We are ardent admirers of Sabyasachi Mukherjee and the heritage and regal aesthetic of the brand. We wanted to imbibe the same opulent vibe into our festivities.”
In stately hues of red, ivory and gold, the decor, executed by Epitome Events, exuded magnificence with extravagant floral arrangements, lush foliage elements and vintage bronze memorabilia such as vases and record players; all of it enveloped in the warm glow of ornate chandeliers.
The couple each donned two outfits for the occasion. In keeping with the theme, the bride’s first ensemble was an ivory and gold classic Sabyasachi lehenga, which was teamed with diamond jewellery from Elite Diamonds, customized by her mother. The groom’s attire for the occasion was a bespoke Indo-Western outfit from Coax Couture.
For the second look, the bride wore a silk saree from Kanchipuram in gold. She paired this with a custom-made blouse designed by Sruthi Kannath. The groom’s outfit, designed by Idris from Coax Couture, complemented her ensemble perfectly. The bride wore exquisite embroidered footwear from Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla X Needledust, while her glowing visage and elegant hairdo were created by the team of PRAK At Work. The glorious festivities were captured by Vipin Photography. The special moments of the day were filmed by WeddingSutra Favorite – Aaron Obed.
