Hinal Malavia and Dhavall Sangani, The Westin Mumbai Powai Lake
Gilded in gold and adorned with suspended blooms, this couple’s wedding mandap stood out against the serene backdrop of Powai Lake.
Elegant and rooted in tradition, Hinal Malavia and Dhavall Sangani’s lakeside wedding in Mumbai was a serene one with pre-wedding celebrations that inspired awe. Planned and Decorated by WeddingSutra Favorite – Bhoomi Events and Planners, this Gujarati Wedding was jam-packed with lovable moments flanked by aesthetic backdrops.
Dinesh Pandaya from Bhoomi Events and Planners shared, “The planning for the wedding began in December as they wanted to tie the knot in February. However, the plans were vague as the pandemic made the situation uncertain. There were also discussions about postponing the wedding. However, we started our process in the background and in the month of January, we hit the ground running as we began the concrete planning process just 20 days before the wedding. The couple’s brief was simple – they wanted something traditional and elegant. The entire family collaborated with us to design the decor. The most challenging part was the RSVP, but in the end, everyone showed up. Each event was designed and planned following the pandemic protocols.
The couple shares, “We were looking for an aesthetic and dreamy sundowner wedding with a backdrop of a lake and Bhoomi Events helped us make that dream come true. They looked into every little detail and made the whole experience absolutely surreal and romantic!”
Flaunting a glamorous black and gold colour palette Dhavall and Hinal’s sangeet consisted of high-energy performances. However, the couple’s parents had a surprise in store for them as they took the colossal stage by storm with their dance performance! Dhavall also wasn’t far behind as he surprised Hinal with his dance moves.
Dinesh shares, “The haldi was a very vibrant event where the couple’s friends made the most of the opportunity by playfully slathering them with turmeric and yogurt. Being shy by nature, Dhavall and Hinal, surprised everyone as they rode in on a yellow Vespa with Hinal at the front and Dhavall as the pillion!”
Commencing the final celebration of this two-day wedding was a fun-filled baraat where the groom and his loved one entered to the beats of the dhol. After a serene sundowner varmala which was punctuated by color bombs, the duo proceeded to the beautiful gilded mandap that stood out against the Powai Lake and the blue February sky. Decorated with pristine white and pink blooms, the mandap was the highlight of the wedding decor.
