Tanya Dadhich and Ankit Vyas, Rambagh Palace, Jaipur
Stunning in every aspect with unique themes and a rich color palette, Tanya Dadhich and Ankit Vyas’ union in the majestic Rambagh Palace, Jaipur, in the month of April was the epitome of grandeur. Planned and decorated by WeddingSutra Favorite – Weddings by Event Crafter, this destination wedding made jaws drop with its spectacular use of varied hues and elements. Photographing the union was WeddingSutra Favorite – Dream Diaries who carefully captured dynamic moments that expressed the unfiltered joy of the couple as well as that of their families.
For their union, Tanya and Ankit chose one of the most iconic venues in Jaipur that come under the umbrella of the Taj Hotels, namely Rambagh Palace. With its striking heritage architecture, an array of fine dining restaurants and vast open spaces, this palatial hotel gave the couple’s creativity wings as they collaborated with their wedding squad to orchestrate unique events at various in-house venues. From carefully landscaped gardens and rolling lawns to airy terraces, this venue had everything the duo could ever ask for!
Giving us an overview of the brief they received from the couple, Nitika Nagpal from Weddings By Event Crafter shares, “The couple and their families had complete clarity on the kind of wedding they wanted. The wedding took place in the middle of the pandemic, hence it was a challenging one as the clients were keen on a royal Rajasthani wedding. The color palette of every event was different and chosen carefully to exude a sense of modern royalty. Everything was intricately planned with scripts for each event etching out everything from the entry to the exit. On the other hand, every event was hosted at a different in-house venue for variation. Every guest was looked after personally and the team was constantly on their toes to ensure the hospitality was top-notch.”
On the photography front, Dream Diaries was at its artistic best capturing pictures that brimmed with color and joy. From dynamic dance performances by the bride and groom and playful banter between the guests to the richness of the traditional wedding ceremony, each shot aptly captured the spirit of the union.
Following a ‘Royal Rajasthan’ theme, the Welcome Party was organized to give the guests a flavor of the state. A troupe of elephants and horses greeted the guests at the entrance while traditional performances like the Rajasthani Ghoomar took place on the porch. As they made their way within the venue, the guests were adorned with garlands crafted out of fresh flowers and crystals.
Next in line was a spectacular Haldi that was themed around ‘Phoolon ki Holi’. Nikita Nagpal shares, “This event was specially curated to contain a lot of dance and drama. Artists hailing from Vrindavan dressed up as Radha and Krishna performed a special musical performance while the air was heavy with the scent of attar. The venue was swathed in colors, and multiple petals were scattered everywhere! Freshly prepared pedhe and lassi, along with lots of laughter made the Haldi a merry one as everyone lounged around and the families interacted with each other.”
Based on the bride’s favorite color, the Mehndi was lit up with soft lighting that set a tranquil mood and the decor made the entire event seem intimate. A Bollywood band played selectively curated tunes as the couple made a stunning entry on a cloudy aisle flanked by their parents and dancers in tow.
Nikita Nagpal shares, “The Sangeet was crafted around a ‘Neon Jungle’ theme with the venue decked up as a replica of a jungle. Transformed into a neon arena with integrated décor, entertainment and experiences, the venue left everyone spellbound the minute they set foot inside! Although the guest list was limited, we made sure that the grandeur was at its highest. A lush verdant passage full of tall tree trunks gave the guests an impression of walking through a jungle. Lounges crafted out of neon lights and animal print upholstery completed the look.”
A splendid fusion of pastel hues and whimsical details, the English Carnival took its inspiration from an ‘iridescent’ theme. Seats were arranged to resemble a picnic setup along with flamingos, origami and floral hangings that dotted the venue. A blanket of pastel baby’s breath ran across in varied hues of yellow, pink, purple and blue. Adding to the beauty of the event were 20-25 artists who were flown in from Mumbai to entertain the guests.
For the couple’s big day, the planning team went all out and left no stone unturned to give them a union they’d always dreamed of. Nikita Nagpal shares, “After zeroing in on the ‘Sangria Purple’ theme, we went on to create a wedding that was totally out of the box. All elements were custom made and the decor revolved around the tints and shades of the sangria purple hue. All installations were conceptualized around the origins of Hindu traditions. The varmala was a grand one as approximately 65 dancers performed during the ceremony with an especially choreographed dance. ”
