Sargun and Harmol, Jaipur
This couple’s intimate royal wedding was abounding with finely curated stunning musical performances for every function!
High-school sweethearts Sargun Kaur Sachdeva and Harmol Samra commemorated their journey of love with a close-knit yet royal wedding in the Pink City. The beautiful nuances of their love were captured against the beguiling backdrop of their elegant celebrations by WeddingSutra Favorite – Sam & Ekta.
How they met
Precious few are the people who can say that they have known their partner for their whole lives! Sargun and Harmol grew up as friends and classmates from the beginning of school, but it was the prospect of going away to college that nudged them to admit their true feelings for each other and take the plunge. So while Sargun pursued her studies in Delhi, Harmol jetted off to San Francisco, and over the next 5 years of long distance, their long-standing friendship evolved into an enduring love that stood strong against all odds!
In 2019, Harmol popped the big question in Amritsar, the place where it all began.
Even though the couple had travelled and lived across the globe, they decided to tie knot in their home country of India, and chose to host their wedding against the royal façade of the Pink City at Fairmont Jaipur. The award-winning photography team of Sam & Ekta was roped in to capture their precious moments. The couple shared, “Kind, helpful and fun, Sam and Ekta are the most genuine people we’ve met in our lives. It was amazing to have them cover our wedding since they became literally like family by the end of it. They believe in candid shots above all else and that’s what we loved the most. No posing, no looking into the camera, they let us be ourselves and enjoy every moment of our wedding. The amazing moments that they’ve captured will stay with us for a lifetime.
The festivities kicked off with a fun, breezy Mehendi function held on the rooftop. Bright floral décor painted a pretty picture in the afternoon sun, with lively pops of yellow and pink. The informal soiree included amazing gin cocktails and Punjabi Folk music, as everyone laughed, danced, got their hands painted with henna, and enjoyed to the hilt. The bride looked radiant in a bright fuchsia lehenga by Anita Dongre.
Simple yet stunning décor of white and yellow marigolds set the tone for the intimate Haldi ceremony. The bride opted for some boho magic with a yellow printed sharara set while the groom chose a classic white kurta set for the occasion, and the couple sat side-by-side as their loved ones smeared them with turmeric paste.
The evening followed with an elegant Qawwali Night. The soulful music of Nizami Bandu filled the air with magic, and everyone embraced Nawabi splendor in Shararas and Passas. The bride looked divine in a mint green Sabyasachi lehenga, while the groom opted for a stylish blue kurta and jacket set. The night was full of performances, dancing and revelry.
Delicate hues of pink and peach celebrated the tranquil beauty of the auspicious Anand Karaj, with pretty drapes and vines of flowers and leaves. The couple exuded regal charisma in exquisite attires of blush pink, as they took their vows.
The revelries came to a close with a grand finale reception dinner. Exotic, glamorous décor decked the ballroom, while the evening saw lavish performances, cake cutting, a live band and more. The groom looked dapper in a white tuxedo while the bride dazzled in a shimmering blue lehenga.
Advice for Couples
“Our advice to anyone who’s getting married, especially amidst the pandemic is to keep it intimate and focus on celebrating with your friends and family. Find the right vendors and be honest with them about your expectations. Do what you like and not what other people expect from you. Most importantly, don’t stress too much about it because eventually it will all fall into place!”
