Tonmoyee and Vinay, Amari Phuket, Thailand
This wedding in Thailand celebrated two distinctive cultural backgrounds by combining Indian and Bangladeshi traditions.
For Tonmoyee and Vinay, a swipe right led straight to the perfect match. Within a short time, the two knew they were meant to be by each other’s sides for the rest of their lives. With this understanding, the preparations for their Thailand wedding commenced. The duo entrusted WeddingSutra Favorite – Cupcake Productions, with the responsibility of capturing the precious moments from their big day which was planned meticulously by WeddingSutra Favorite – Keeran the Wedding Planner. Here are some glimpses from the nuptials.
How They Met
“Our love story started with a swipe. A short conversation later, it was decided that we would go on a date. We traveled the world, lived together, stayed apart and soon we bet all our chips on love.”
On the day of Tonmoyee and Vinay’s haldi, decor elements in soft pink and orange hues stood in contrast with the cool-blue environs of the poolside venue that overlooked the sea. The couple sat under a pink canopy, with a backdrop that featured bird motifs and a roof decked with tassels in the same hue. The bride took inspiration from the lively color palette, choosing a yellow lehenga designed by Payal Singhal, which she teamed with floral jewellery from Prune India and Pushponir Dhaka. The groom’s outfit, on the other hand, was designed by the bride herself!
The couple combined their mehndi and sangeet celebrations into one event; a lively evening filled with performances from their loved ones, a musical segment by a few of their friends and lots of dancing. The function was hosted outdoors. The bride dazzled in a golden lehenga by Sabyasachi and the groom complemented her, wearing a sherwani in the same hue.
Tonmoyee and Vinay’s wedding was a reflection of their beliefs and combined aspects of various different cultures. She arrived at the venue dressed in a red jamdani saree designed by her mother and made by the weavers of Bangladesh for a ceremony that saw the couple exchange vows. Along with this, the duo exchanged varmalas and the groom presented the mangalsutra to the bride. The whimsical function was set against the views of the Andaman Sea. The venue featured a beautiful doorway decked with flowers and foliage, which was accented with gold Moroccan lamps.
The dreamy reception was the grand finale that their wedding deserved. Elegant chandeliers were used alongside pretty bistro lights and shimmering ceiling decor, all of which imparted contemporary grace to the function. Heartfelt speeches and warm smiles made the evening memorable.
The bride looked lovely in a red and turquoise blue lehenga by Anju Modi and the groom looked handsome in his attire from Hugo Boss and Ted Baker.
