Kanupriya and Vidit, Kolkata
The romantic river cruise glittered under the night sky, aglow with the shimmering lights of the magnificent Howrah Bridge.
The splendid wedding festivities of London based Kanupriya and Vidit at ITC Royal Bengal and ITC Sonar left their mixed roster of local and International guests awestruck. Their memorable blend of contemporary influences and traditions were planned to perfection by WeddingSutra Favorite – Marriageuana and enjoyed immensely by everyone, which can be seen in these beguiling shots by WeddingSutra Favorite – Reels and Frames.
The bride shares, “Considering that a lot of our guests were coming from abroad, we wanted a wedding that would have all of them feel well entertained and most certainly at home while immersed in Indian revelries. My mother took charge of the planning with the team of Marriageuana, executing well designed and planned concepts. However, shortly before the wedding she attended another wedding where she absolutely fell in love with the arrangements. Apart from the wedding which was created as per her devotion as a Krishna Bhakt, several of the pre-wedding festivities were changed to look like the celebrations that we attended, and they turned out to be more beautiful than we could have ever imagined.”
The team of Reels and Frames were entrusted with immortalizing the majestic moments of the revelries, the décor was tastefully executed by Millennium Event and Marriageuana Floral Art.
The festivities kicked off with a glamorous proposal function, the theme of which was “Shimmering Date Night on the River Cruise”. The sparkling revelries included professional dancers, cold pyros and led lights as everyone danced the night away floating underneath the beautifully lit up Howrah bridge.
Bringing life to the theme of Marrakech Promenade, the Mehndi function boasted of colorful décor, vibrant prints and spectacularly costumed professional artists who made the bride and groom’s entry truly memorable.
Sangeet and Tilak
With psychedelic lights and LED decor, the theme of Club KV for the Sangeet was a blend of retro glam and futuristic inspiration. Musicians clad in white and black pinstriped suits performed and entertained the guests while the night saw grand performances by the couple, flanked by professional dancers.
True to the theme “Phoolon mein bahaar hai”, the Haldi celebration was like no other. Radiant in yellow attires and smeared with turmeric paste, the bride and the groom sat in enormous royal metal plates filled with marigold petals, as their loved ones showered them with even more petals.
Created to depict the theme of “Krishna Mahima” as per the bride’s mother’s faith, the wedding saw grand revelries of red and gold with spectacular décor. Starting with all the pomp and splendor of a great Indian baraat, the evening saw a grandiose mandap, exquisite outfits and an unbelievable backdrop of Lord Krishna.
