Simran and Bhuvan, Thailand
The first Indian wedding to be held in Chiang Rai saw some unforgettable moments.
A wedding is the beginning of a great new adventure, and what better way to mark the same, than with a spectacular celebration in the exotic destination of Thailand? This was the first ever Indian wedding hosted in Chiang Rai – the northernmost province of Thailand, known for its pleasant atmosphere and surrounded by mountains. Planned by WeddingSutra Favorite – Krish Events, Simran and Bhuvan’s vibrant wedding festivities were a confluence of soulful rituals, stunning Thai influences and awe-inspiring decor. The revelries were captured in all their glory by WeddingSutra Favorite – Anoop.Photography, glimpses of which are shared below.
Welcome the #Gandhi2theKaur Wedding extravaganza!
Hosted at a plush resort in Chiang Rai, the guests arrived to a warm Thai welcome.
Dressed in Chut Thai, traditional Thai attire, beautiful dancers greeted the guests.
The festivities kicked off with a ‘Picnic under the stars’ themed welcome party.
Daredevil fire dancers put up an arresting performance.
Now that’s what you call a grand entrance!
You have NOT really partied until you have shaken a leg aboard a Thai boat!
Framed against the sparks of their love (literally!)
The mehndi was a sunny al-fresco affair.
Did someone say sun? Be sure to chic-it-up with some hats or hand-painted fans!
Fun games like giant jenga added excitement to the event!
While the smooth lilting tones of the Saxophone set a mellow mood.
Nachde ne saare!
Inspired by the Sakura Season, Cherry blossoms and dainty Japanese parasols conjured up a magical vision at the Sangeet.
All geared up to slay
A moment of romance worthy of a Karan Johar film!
The next day began with Haldi and Choodas.
The big day finally arrives.
Some moments of joy with some introspective musings
How gorgeous is that floral canopy decked with soft clouds of baby’s breath?
The dashing groom in the house!
A sweet tradition of the bride’s mother pulling the groom’s nose as he enters.
The groom awaits his bride with baited breath as he stands at the altar with his sister and the bride’s mother.
Flanked by the men of her family, her heroes, the bride arrives under a gorgeous phoolon ki chadar.
“Here we meet, all ready to begin our journey together”
The couple exchange varmalas.
Emotional tears flow as she acknowledges the big welcome change, a tender goodbye to her childhood home and the journey ahead into her new life of wedded bliss.
“In step with you, through thick and thin, forever and always”.
Now that’s a flawless click!
Flowers and bubbles welcome them to the reception celebration.
A night of dancing and revelry…
A night of toasts and speeches…
Ever mine, ever thine, ever ours!
