Shilpi and Abhay, Thailand
From a musical evening to a casino themed bash, Shilpi and Abhay's Thailand wedding included fun functions with striking decor.
Shilpi and Abhay’s opulent Thailand wedding, which was captured by WeddingSutra Favorite – Shutterdown, boasted of some charming and varied ceremonies overlooking the gentle waves of the Indian Ocean. Here are some highlights of the festivities.
The wedding festivities began with a chic beach sundowner party. Hosted at the Nikki Beach, the sundowner had a bohemian theme and included pristine white decor.
A welcome soiree called ‘Shaam-E-Nazrana’ was hosted to entertain the guests. A beautiful evening with decor elements that boasted of magnificent chandeliers, the function was a Qawwali night complete with traditional caps, jasmine garlands, ethnic fragrances and traditional mouth fresheners.
A boisterous pool-party was hosted for the guests to relax and play in the bubbly pool. Refreshing white and blue decor with bright sunny flowers adorned the pool foyer, giving the party a picture-perfect backdrop.
Shilpi and Abhay chose ‘The Great Gatsby’ as the theme for their sangeet ceremony. The night was an entertaining affair with mesmerizing performances by the couple’s family and friends, after which everyone danced the night away as the DJ spun his hit tracks.
Matching up to the glitz of the sangeet was the Casino Night. Guests enjoyed the spectacular shows, exciting games and a wide range of food and bar menu options.
The haldi ceremony, also known as ‘Tel Baan,’ was conducted before the wedding ceremony. Beautiful decor accents in shades of yellow and sky blue were designed for the ceremony. Bright sunflowers and yellow drapes offered a striking contrast to the blue decor elements.
The wedding ceremony was an opulent affair with a gigantic pink floral mandap erected for the pheras. A floral chandelier was suspended from the ceiling of the mandap. The stairs leading to it were surrounded with fresh, exotic blooms that added a touch of elegance to the decor. The bride made an entry in a boat that floated through the gorgeous pool of the resort while folk dancers performed traditional Thai dance moves in the background.
The reception had a vintage garden themed decor that was illuminated with romantic fairy lights.
