Henal Acharya and Chandan Serai, Dubai
From a Moulin Rouge Sangeet to a black-tie Reception gala, this 3-day long wedding extravaganza saw unparalleled glamor.
Brimming with fun festivities, unique themes and stellar entertainment, Dubai-based Henal Acharya and Chandan Serai got the wedding of their dreams that was flawlessly designed by WeddingSutra Favorite – Vivaah Celebrations. Watch their 3-days of revelries unfold below.
The couple picked the Habtoor complex for its abundance of stunning venues and zeroed in on V Hotel Dubai and Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City for their wedding festivities, which were planned to perfection by Vivaah Celebrations. Talking about the experience they share, “It was a delight working with Maggi and Rahul, as well the entire team. Working with Vivaah Celebrations has been an exceptional journey, and we enjoyed the whole planning process. They were very professional and hands-on with everything, and we would recommend them to anyone planning their wedding.”
Kicking things off with a rapturous Sangeet themed as the Great Indian Carnival, the first night saw the alluring Moulin Rouge-inspired decor of marquee lights, roses, gilded elements, an immersive photo booth, and more in rich tones of red and gold. The dazzling dances by the couple and their families, as well as the enchanting performance by Rooh Band, had the guests on the edge of their seats. The rousing tunes of DJ Gautam kept the party at V Hotel Dubai going till the early hours of the morning.
The wedding celebration saw a beguiling mix of grandeur and modern aesthetics portrayed luxuriously against the regal backdrop of Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City. The baraat made its way through the Habtoor Palace gates to the venue which was decked with pastel elegance. Flanked by sleek gilded guest seating, the whimsical floral glass aisle led to the pastel mandap designed with blush pink blooms, crystals, and chandeliers. Henal looked like royalty in Manish Malhotra bridal couture as she walked down the aisle, while the groom kept it classy with an embroidered gold sherwani by Varoin Marwah.
The festivities came to a spectacular close with a black-tie Reception gala. Hostesses in shimmering gowns greeted guests with champagne as they entered the grand ballroom that featured a magnificent champagne tower in front of the opulent stage. Aerial artists flanked the stage in their elegant gold gowns cascading down to the floor adding a dollop of magic to the night. Dressed in stunning black and grey ensembles, the couple headed to the floor for their first dance serenaded by a world-famous violinist, after which artist Stebin Ben took to the stage to take the night to another level. Energized by the beats of DJ Manoj, the couple and their guests danced into the night.
