Bhavesh and Barkha, YMCA International Centre, Ahmedabad
A regal setup, complete with elaborate floral pathways, struck the perfect balance between elegant and whimsical at this gorgeous wedding.
Bhavesh and Barkha’s close bond was evident in the beautiful ceremonies and events that took place during their wedding celebrations. The couple chose WeddingSutra Favorite – 7X Weddings, to help them bring their dream wedding to life. Here, Bhavesh shares the highlights of the occasions.
How They Met
The couple initially started interacting when they heard of each other through the formalities of an arranged marriage setup. This led to friendship and the wonderful discovery of love between them. The groom says, “Our families received our profiles through a common acquaintance. The moment I received Barkha’s biodata, I looked her up on Instagram and dropped her a message saying that I hoped she had seen my biodata, too. We started talking and got to know each other without letting our parents know – it was our little secret. We were already quite comfortable with each other by the time our parents arranged a meeting. Once we met, the decision was pretty easy. And here we are today.”
“My dad always wanted to plan a grand wedding for me and I wanted to make his dream come true. I met multiple wedding planners before deciding on one. My search ended when I met Rajat Ji from 7X Weddings. I immediately realized that the team would be the best – they understood my vision and are dedicated to giving clients their money’s worth. The team is professional yet welcoming and friendly, making it easy to communicate and plan every little detail to perfection.”
Ring Ceremony and Sangeet
The ring ceremony was combined with the sangeet night. It was a grand event where the couple was surrounded by their friends and families. Bhavesh and Barkha put on mesmerizing performances while others gleefully danced to Bollywood songs. The decor was chic and classy, with black and grey tones and an abundance of flowers adding freshness to the occasion.
The groom and his baraat made an impressive entry, dancing enthusiastically to upbeat music. He wore a beige sherwani with floral accents, while the bride looked stunning in a red lehenga. The decor was primarily white, with beautiful flowers in shades of pink. Adding a touch of dreamy elegance were bouquets of white flowers and fronds extending from the roof of the open-styled mandap.
The decor for the reception looked exquisite. The venue looked regal with artistic columns and a grand floral backdrop – a palatial setting fit for royalty. The pathway leading up to the reception was decorated with stunning floral arches made with pink and white flowers and delicate leaves. The couple began their married life together graciously interacting with all their guests in this magical setting.
Advice For Couples
“Trust each other to make your lives better instead of trying to resist the changes that marriage brings into your life – remember that these changes are beautiful. Let go of things that don’t matter and move ahead. Keep calm and find a solution to your problems together. Most importantly, keep smiling and spreading love.”
