Shikha Puri and Rohan Khanna wed at the Amari Orchid in Pattaya, Thailand. The three-day affair was managed by Gurgaon-based Neha Mehrotra who runs Foreign Wedding Planners, a company which specialises in Indian Weddings in Thailand.
The celebrations started with a welcome lunch at Orchid Terrace, Amari. This was followed by the Shagun and Chunni ceremony and a Mehndi function. The evening function was a Thai-Arabian theme Sangeet where mirror work and sequins were the highlight of the decor, and the predominant colours pink, reds and purple.
After the haldi and choora ceremony the Wedding ceremony was held on 9th July at the Sunset Park and Village Resort at the beach side. The next day, the guests were taken to the nearby Coral Island for a day of water sports, fun on the beach and an Indian lunch. A formal sit-down Black and white theme reception was held in the evening. The elements of the classy evening included a huge heart-shaped flower arrangement for the couple to walk-through, speeches, thank you notes, cake cutting and champagne. The venue was decorated with candles, tall flower arrangements of white flowers and black feathers, huge ice carvings; the food was Italian and the party rocked till 5.00 am.
Says Shikha: “On the most thought-about day of my life, I looked around and felt truly blessed because all the little dreams I had thought about since a little girl came to life like pieces of a puzzle uncovered. My family, my friends, the decor, the grandeur and all the blessings have imprinted a memory for a lifetime. The chief architect, our wedding planner, Neha, helped realise my dreams so it was quite a fairytale ending!”
