Hosted at Kovalam’s Taj Green Cove Resort and Spa, the celebration was replete with scenic beauty, rich culture, and warm hospitality, every detail of which was planned to perfection by Koncepts Events and Wedding Planners. Watch it unfold below.
With a minimalistic ethos, the couple wanted a serene, picturesque venue to frame their special moments. The timeless property of Taj Green Cove Resort and Spa in Kovalam offered the best of luxury in an unmatched setting for the most unforgettable celebrations.
The couple entrusted the team of Koncepts Events and Wedding Planners to embellish their festivities with unique themes, stylish decor, and memorable entertainment. From welcoming their guests in true Kerala style with Kathakali Artists, Chenda Melam, shell garlands, and refreshing coconut drinks to orchestrating the most interesting decor and activities, they went the extra mile to give their couple and their guests a special experience.
To highlight the wooden interiors and earthy aesthetic of the hotel, a mehndi lounge was created with the subtle bohemian décor of drapes, pampas grass, delicate florals, and macrame art. Light Bollywood music completed the setting for relaxation and enjoyment as everyone got their hands painted with henna.
Inspired by Netflix, of which the couple are huge fans, the Sangeet function was curated to delight guests of all ages! From the red carpet entrance with a popcorn wall to lounges based on the couple’s favorite shows and movies, a photo booth shaped like a magazine cover, and so much more, every exquisite detail left the guests awe-struck. The couple arrived with a dazzling entry before exchanging rings in a lively ceremony and spent the evening playing games and dancing to their heart’s content.
The sunkissed haldi soiree was imbibed with the local flavors of Kerala to give their Gujarati guests an unforgettable experience! Everyone dressed up in silk sarees and ‘lungis’ and were given shawls and ‘gajras’ as they entered, along with marbles as coupons for playing games in keeping with the theme of Squid Games, the couple’s favorite series. The lively haldi ceremony was followed by a traditional sit-down ‘Sadya’ lunch which everyone relished.
The mesmerizing wedding ceremony was the highlight of the entire celebration, hosted against the sunset view with the sea on one side and the lake on the other. The groom arrived in a walking baraat and the bride in a boat from the lake in the most stunning entry. As they tied the knot under the beautiful floral mandap canopy in the presence of all the family members, renowned Violinist Nidhinraj filled the air with a magical melody that had everyone enraptured.
The phera ceremony ended with a formal sit-down dinner on the beachside as an unplugged singer serenaded them. It was the perfect culmination of the memorable getaway.
