Deeksha and Tarun, Sheraton Hua Hin, Thailand
Continents apart, Deeksha and Tarun fell in love over the phone and decided to spend the rest of their lives together without once meeting in person!
Deeksha from Toronto and Tarun from Mauritius tell us all about their beautiful wedding at the Sheraton Hua Hin, Thailand.
We were introduced by a common relative and started getting to know each other through phone conversations and texts. We fell in love and said ‘yes’ without seeing each other!
For the hotels, we had many options but we chose the Sheraton because their staff and management were accommodating and let us create a mandap on the pool while giving us exclusive use of the pool for the pool party. In addition, their lagoon access rooms were really impressive.
The wedding planners, I Do Etc. from Bangkok, were a great help when it came to deciding themes for the functions.
We started with the Sangeet for which we had a musical theme, Shaam Shandar, which was all about dancing, music and entertainment. We made our entrance on a turn-table on stage and it was very Bollywood!
The mehndi next day, held by the pool, with lots of colorful flowers and a touch of candy pop, was a great hit. That evening we hosted a masquerade and dinner. Rahul Vaidya performed and had everyone grooving on the dance floor. It was a fun party especially because everyone was behind a mask.
Our very traditional wedding ceremony was held the next evening at the stunning mandap built on the pool, with a very regal Indian design.
The reception was romantic with pastels, fairy lights, live statues and girls sitting in hoops pouring champagne for guests. Everything was white and looked stunning!
Experience with the Wedding Vendors
We were very happy with all our vendors. Everything at our wedding went very smoothly, impossible without the right people.
We hired I Do Etc. as our wedding planners. They did an excellent job of organizing everything, which made it possible for us to enjoy our own wedding. Their team was very professional and did utmost to ensure everything was perfection. Thanks to I Do Etc. our dream wedding came true.
Ambika Madarasmi and team did a great job giving me a different look for every function.
