Anushka and Divij, Thailand
Under a canopy of exotic foliage and glistening crystal hangings, everyone hit the dance floor for an unforgettable night.
Anushka and Divij tied the knot in their dream wedding celebration against a breathtaking backdrop of rolling waves. Their vision was brought to fruition by WeddingSutra Favorite – Pink Palki, while every second of their festivities were preserved for eternity in gorgeous frames by WeddingSutra Favorite – Ramit Batra.
How they met
Anushka, who travelled to London for a Patisserie Course, crossed paths with Divij, a Post Graduate student in 2016. Living in the same student accommodation, they met through common friends. Divij, who was instantly smitten, soon won over Anushka with his charm, and there was no looking back.
After three years of blissful dating, Divij popped the question with a surprise proposal planned at the Roseate Hotel. Stepping into the room filled with her favorite flowers, fairy lights, cake, and champagne, Anushka was rendered speechless when the blinds opened up to show ‘Marry me’ in the marquee lights outside.
The bride shares, “We both wanted an intimate wedding with just our close friends and family. We had loved the Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa in Thailand when we previously attended a friend’s wedding there. Even though we earlier tried to look for a different venue, we ultimately zeroed in on the same for its beautiful property and venues overlooking the sea, something I had always wanted”.
The wedding was planned and executed to perfection by the talented team of Pink Palki. The bride shares, “Decor was the one thing I was very particular about and I had a very specific vision before meeting with the Pink Palki team, who executed every last detail of my concept perfectly. From color combinations of every function to personalized coconuts, room tags and stationery, everything was exactly as I wanted it.”
The precious moments were immortalized in gorgeous shots by Ramit Batra. The beautiful candid moments captured is something the couple will cherish for their lifetime.
The festivities kicked off with a vintage glam cocktail abundant with rich, warm lights and lovely floral décor in pastel hues with pampas grass, antique chandeliers and LED signages. The groom looked elegant in a navy velvet bandhgala while the bride shimmered in a silver embellished lehenga for this function.
The guests then indulged in a vibrant poolside Mehndi celebration amidst tons of fun. Quirky décor in hues of pink, yellow and blue lent a bohemian feel to the outdoor function, with breezy drapes, dreamcatchers, a beer bar, flamingoes and gorgeous floral accents.
The bride wore an intricately embroidered orange gown from Papa Don’t Preach by Shubhika teamed with baubles from Outhouse Jewellery, while the groom turned heads in a lavender kurta with a dapper multi colored Bandi jacket.
The tropical jungle themed Sangeet saw enchanting décor of exotic foliage interspersed with beautiful crystal props over and around a massive chevron print dance floor. The evening was heady with stunning performances by the couple and their loved ones before everyone got down to groove. The groom wore a suave white tuxedo while the bride dazzled in a gold cocktail gown by Amit Aggarwal.
A magical concoction of white, pink and gold, the romantic wedding festivities was a sight to behold against the azure blues. Blush floral arrangements of cherry blossom and other blooms covered the venue as well as the mandap while serene white seating and dinner settings kept the décor elegant. The bride wore a beautiful blush pink Sabyasachi lehenga with rich Polki and meenakari jewelry while the groom complemented her perfectly in a white, pink and gold sherwani.
