Anees and Pratap, Chandigarh
Sporting a pink and red lehenga accessorized with an ornate passa, maang tikka and nath, this bride’s wedding look reflected her love for tradition.
Anees and Pratap first locked eyes in a classic arranged marriage setup. After a whirlwind of meetings, the duo decided to embark on a journey that would last for a lifetime. As they took their first steps towards a new chapter in their lives, WeddingSutra Favorite – Happyframes were present to capture each moment in well-composed frames, making sure that the couple got lots of precious memories to cherish and fondly look back at in the years to come.
With functions spread across Delhi and Chandigarh, the couple decided to host their sangeet at the lush MorBagh, while for the wedding, they chose Baikunth farmhouse where they could revel in the comfort of familiar surroundings. However, for the reception, the duo chose the glamorous Hyatt Regency in New Delhi where they jubilantly mingled with their friends and family.
Acknowledging the mammoth task of planning a wedding, the duo decided to rely on expert vendors who ensured that everything went ahead smoothly. On the photography front, they chose Happyframes who impressed the couple with their continuous dedication and talent. The couple shares, “Team Happyframes covered all our events and we absolutely loved having them around. By the end of our nuptials, they felt like our extended family. We were always at ease around them and I think that can be seen in the pictures themselves. Their work, needless to say, is absolutely awesome!”
Adding to the team were wedding planners Wedlac, makeup artist Shubhdeep Gill and decorators Virista.
Mehndi, Sundowner and Haldi
A boisterous and laid-back event, this function witnessed everyone in a joyful and cheery mood as they socialized to their heart’s content and got henna patterned on their hands. Decorated with multi-hued canopies generously peppered with fairy lights that cast a golden glow over the guests, the decor spurred everyone to shed their inhibitions and shake a leg on the dancefloor.
Sagan and Cocktail
Amping up the glamor stakes, the Sagan and Cocktail event fused contemporary and traditional events to create a setup that exuded ultra-glamorous vibes. Making full use of the indoor and outdoor spaces, the decor included floral archways, mint green seats and romantic table decor crafted out of roses and tea lights. However, the highlight of the occasion was Sukhbir’s energetic performance that had everyone on their feet.
Taking the traditional route for their big day, the couple chose to take their vows as per Sikh rituals under the open sky where they were gently sheltered by a sheer white canopy. Opting for a pastel peach, pink and white color palette, the decor for this function was fairly simple and concentrated delightfully against the lush green foliage that surrounded the venue.
Looking radiant in a pink and red lehenga, the bride stole the show as she accessorized her look with a pearl and emerald encrusted passa, maang tikka and nath. Pratap, on the other hand, chose to contrast his bride in a white sherwani which he paired with a soft pink turban.
Ending the celebration on a high and luxurious note, the couple’s reception was a dazzling event featuring dreamy decor. From vintage chandeliers, delicate canopies to pastel-hued blooms, this event was a heady mix of elegance and exuberance as the couple celebrated their new status as newlyweds.
Reflecting the decor, the bride chose an off-white and silver embroidered lehenga while her groom contrasted her in a black bandhgala accessorized with a rich green pocket square.
