Kanika, an interior designer and Ashish Jain, an architect got married on December 8th, 2010 at Devi Garh, the 18th century fort palace in Udaipur, Rajasthan.
Decor, simple and all about Colour
The colourful, intimate wedding was a relaxed affair, and the contemporary/ traditional decor was done by the couples dear friend Viraj Mohan. Explains Kanika: …The decor, simple in approach was all about colour! Graphics of the Sun and Lotus were used extensively‚in the invitation cards and for other decor elements.
Adds Kanika: …When Ashish had been to Udaipur in 2006 he loved that city, I myself had not been there. But since then he always insisted that he would only get married in Udaipur. In Udaipur we had seen some other venues, such as Fateh Garh and Jag Mandir, but nothing matched up to Devi Garh.
DJ Gaurav Malvai
The Delhi-based couple relied on Udaipurs local vendors and Delhi-based wedding vendors for most servies. Says Kanika: …We werent too finicky about who is to do what, but were very keen that we wanted the best DJ‚so Gaurav Malvai was there. For the wedding, Kanika wore a self-designed lehenga, and Ashish wore a sherwani by the renowned low-profile designer Rajesh Pratap Singh.
Wedding Photography by Anne Heslop
The other all-important element was photography for which they got in touch with UK/ India based photographer Anne Heslop. For Anne it was a most memorable travel & photography experience. She says: …Devi Garh is the most romantic and beautiful venue for a wedding. Just being there puts the family and guests at ease and smiles radiate from their faces, making my job as a photographer so easy! The manager and staff at the hotel were brilliant at keeping to schedule, and did such a great job in ensuring the wedding was oh-so-perfect. I loved the wedding because it was just how a wedding should be! Full of emotion, fun and laughter!
