Rasna and Chirayu celebrated their nuptials in a three-day celebration held at two different hotels in magical and moody Chiang Mai, Thailand. The pre-wedding festivities were hosted at the centrally located Shangri-La Hotel, offering an eclectic mix of European luxury and Thai architecture. The wedding ceremony and reception were hosted at Dhara Dhevi, which is a living experience of rich Lanna Kingdom heritage complete with ancient palace-like structures, traditional Lanna-style villas, delightful colonial mansions, landscaped gardens and rice paddy fields. Both hotels offer picture-perfect settings for a destination wedding.
The couple had 400 guests. The families stayed at Shangri-La and the bride and groom’s friends stayed at the Siripanna Villa Resort & Spa, Chiang Mai. Rasna wore exquisite lehengas from Sabyasachi for the Wedding & Sangeet, a gorgeous metallic dress from Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna for the Welcome Dinner/ Youngster’s Party, a Tarun Tahiliani lehenga for the Mehndi and a Shantanu & Nikhil gown for the Reception.
Mriidu Khosla of WedRed and her team of International award-winning Wedding Coverage Experts covered this wedding. She shares her experience- “When we began unfurling the countless layers of the story of Rasna and Chirayu’s journey together, it dawned on us that there was so much to absorb and capture. This was no ordinary story. So much had gone into the companionship of these two distinct personalities. Even before we set foot in Chiang Mai to begin shooting the wedding, we were going back and forth on pre-production notes to put things in place and find a way to do justice to this realistic tale. But then, the stunningly gorgeous Rasna faced the camera for an interview and it all fell in place. Next came the charming to-be groom, Chirayu, and our story began to take shape. Their beautiful friends and families provided wonderful inputs, filling in all the gaps, and we were able to map a staggering storyline.”
