From friends to soulmates, Mansi and Ankur’s journey was an interesting one! The walls of the Umaid Bhawan Palace and Ajit Bhawan were lit to perfection as the couple hosted their wedding celebrations there. While WeddingSutra Favorite - Vivaah Wedding Decor Stylist spectacularly embellished the wedding venue with their surreal decor, another WeddingSutra Favorite - Ipix Epic Moments captured the stunning moments from the ceremonies. Bride Mansi shares some highlights here.

How They Met
“Ankur and I met 10 years ago because of my brother Ishan since they are best friends. A few years later, Ishan got married and I came into the picture. Gradually, Ankur and I became best friends and we could not do without each other."

The Proposal
“There came a time where my parents started looking at marriage prospects for me, and due to the immense family pressure, I saw about 50 boys. Being the best buddy here, Ankur would drop me off for all my potential meetings with the men. One day I realized that I should probably ask Ankur out. But I was quite shy and nervous and wondered if he would refuse my proposal. For about four months I kept dropping hints. Then one day, we went out for coffee and I slid my ring inside his coffee mug. By the end of his coffee, he was astonished about finding the ring and about me asking him to be my life partner. He didn’t say anything at that point of time. A few days later, he just said, ‘Let’s make 2018 a memorable journey of our lives.'”

Wedding Venue
“When we decided to get married, we knew that it had to be a royal wedding at Umaid Bhawan. The royal destination was our dream venue. Its grandeur and beauty was something we were always fond of. Our wedding celebrations took place across two properties The Ajit Bhawan and Umaid Bhawan Palace.”

Wedding Functions

Mehendi
“The mehendi function was held at the beautiful courtyard of The Ajit Bhawan which is quite close to Umaid Bhawan. The theme for this celebration was centered around vintage pastels. Some other fun activities that kept our guests entertained were a parrot tarot card reader, bangle maker, shopping street, cartoonist, and more.”

Sangeet
“The sangeet was held right at the entrance of the Umaid Bhawan Palace. The palace posed as the pretty backdrop of the stage and the decor was dominated by green and glass elements which looked very refreshing.”

Wedding
“The main function started from the entrance with two baraats. One was from Ankur's side and one was from mine, where both of us arrived in vintage cars. The baraats met at the entrance of the palace, where the varmala ceremony took place. We all then made our way to the back gardens of the palace. The pheras took place there followed by a spectacular fireworks display, cake cutting and garba in the lawns. The decor was quite traditional with a touch of royalty.”

Advice For Couples
“Planning is the key to getting everything right. We did several scouting and recce trips to Jodhpur to figure out logistics prior to the event. If your venue is huge and the guest list is long, you must plan it correctly for a stress-free wedding. And always smile for the camera as it captures everything.”
