How they met
Roma and Jas met back in 2013, on the very day he had moved to the Philippines. Roma, who was studying in London, was back for the Christmas holidays, met him at a dinner with his family, who were close to her parents. She shares, “I remember telling my sister I found him really cute. Initially, we were just friends but over time our relationship evolved into something more. After three years of being together, he popped the question."

Wedding Venue
“The venue was the most challenging decision since our families and friends are from opposite ends of the world. We wanted to find a venue that was somewhere in the middle of the US and the Philippines, and our options were the Middle East and Europe. After four months of travelling and research, we zeroed in on Oman. I remember walking in the Al Bustan Palace Hotel, and instantly knowing that I had found my wedding venue”.

Wedding Planning
For planning their grand wedding festivities, the couple hired Inaaz Communique and Vivaah Weddings whose concepts were executed to perfection by Mosaic Events. The opulent affair was captured and recorded in breathtaking frames by Sam & Ekta. The couple share, “The experience was multidimensional. Not only did Sam & Ekta engage with us in capturing the most genuine moments throughout the wedding, they also mentored us over the wedding week, graciously guiding us through the series of emotional events. We couldn’t have picked anyone better, they are amazing and I’m glad we found them :)"

Welcome Dinner
“We wanted to welcome our guests in a unique and unconventional way. Almost none of our guests had ever been to Oman before. So for the welcome event, we decided to have an Omani themed dinner, where we showcased various aspects of the country's culture, decor, and traditions. We had stations such as the souq market, the Omani fishing village, calligraphy, music, and more.” The bride donned a Shivan and Narresh ensemble, and the groom picked a Tom Ford suit for this function.

Youngsters After Party
“With our fascination for the vibrancy of African culture and music, as well as the energetic tempo of House Music, we threw a youngster’s after-party with an eclectic 'Lost in Tribe' theme, where DJ Rampa, who is our favorite, played his rocking beats."

Mehndi
“I had always wanted an Amalfi themed party, and so for our mehndi ceremony, the decor of lemons, trees, blue and white vases and flowers transported everyone to the coastal region of Amalfi in Italy for one glorious afternoon." The couple opted for Shantanu & Nikhil ensembles for this function.

Sangeet
“We wanted a colorful, musical, and traditional sangeet that showcased our love for Indian culture. Rich tones of red and gold decor were soaked in warm golden lighting to lend the evening a magical touch, which ended with a surprise performance by Diljit Dosanjh." The bride wore a Falguni Shane Peacock creation, while the groom looked dapper in an outfit by Shantanu & Nikhil.

“With a beautiful backdrop of the ocean, and nestled amidst the Al Bustan Palace compound, we couldn’t have picked a better place to have a solemn wedding ceremony than the Al Bustan Lawn. The white and gold mandap was inspired by Arabic architecture and looked spectacular against the blue sea. Both our outfits were from Sabyasachi Mukherjee, and Jas’s red turban matched my all red lehenga perfectly.”
