How They Met
Rahul and Trisha first crossed paths in school where she was totally oblivious to Rahul’s affections for her. However, fate had other plans and despite any challenges coming their way, nothing could keep them apart!
Located by the Chao Phraya river in eleven acres of lush greenery, the Anantara Riverside Bangkok Resort gave the couple ample greenery along with the sheer convenience of Bangkok city for their intimate Wedding. For their Cocktail Dinner, they chose the Avani+ Riverside Bangkok Hotel where they had a gala time tucking in the sumptuous delicacies while taking in the views. Charmed by Thailand’s palm-fringed coasts, famed hospitality and seamless understanding of Indian culture, the couple had an easy time selecting Bangkok, Thailand as the venue for their destination wedding. A short distance away from the city’s attractions, the location also gave their loved ones an opportunity to explore the beautiful country while they took a break from the wedding festivities.
Behind every successful and beautiful destination wedding is an expert wedding squad working in tandem with the couple’s vision. The couple roped in Delhi-based Twogether Studios who captured emotional, romantic and fun moments from the couple’s union. Right from the sunlit Pre-wedding shoot, the glamorous Sangeet to the unique Sand Vow ceremony, each event was captured in stunning frames.
Before the wedding, the couple hosted an intimate and simple Haldi ceremony where their loved ones happily slathered the couple with turmeric. The couple had a great time getting their pre-wedding glow on amidst the playful revelries that were further accentuated by the pink decor.
Keen on having a quiet Wedding, the couple decided to first have their ceremony conducted and then welcomed their guests for all the other events. There was attractive floral décor dotting the venue, and as the bride walked in under the phoolon ki chadar, emotions ran high.
Set on a rooftop venue from where guests could feast their eyes on the cityscape, the Cocktail Dinner was a combination of glamour and elegance. As everyone enjoyed the delicious spread, the couple won hearts by making a cheery toast.
Following the theme ‘50 shades of Blue’, the Brunch was a breezy one with the guests welcoming the couple by waving blue ribbons in the air. Sheltering the guests were sheer blue drapes that played peek-a-boo with the sun adding an easygoing vibe to the fabulous event.
The Sangeet was uber glam with a massive stage backed by LED lights. The couple cheered on as everyone danced to their favorite tunes. Adding to the liveliness was Harrdy Sandhu’s epic performance that had everyone grooving the night away!
Sand Vows Ceremony
A symbolistic ceremony where the bride and groom combine the sands from their individual vessels into one vessel, the Sand Vows ceremony for Trisha and Rahul was exciting yet romantic. Hosted on a rooftop, this ceremony was very close to their hearts as it expressed the intricacies of their relationship.
Hosted indoors, the Reception was a black-tie event where everyone turned up in their finest outfits. While the men donned tuxedos, the ladies looked dazzling in their gowns and indo-western outfits. After a series of heartwarming toasts, the couple turned all heads with a romantic waltz on the dancefloor.
