How they met
Naina and Suvansh’s love story is sure to get you nostalgic with its 90’s Bollywood romance charm. Naina shares, “Ours was a college romance. Me, along with a couple of other students joined a little later in the term, and the first time Suvansh laid eyes on me, he told his friends he had found his girl! With the help of his friends, he tried to get me to hang out with them for several days, but to no avail. Finally, I decided to give into his persistence and agreed to spend time with him. The rest, as they say, is history. We dated for 7 years before tying the knot.
Since we hail from different cultures, getting everyone on board was a challenge, but the feeling of overcoming them to stand together as man and wife is incredible”.
The bride had always dreamed of a beach wedding. After an extensive search, the couple decided on getting married at The Lalit Golf & Spa Resort, Goa. They loved the pristine property and numerous venue choices within, but its biggest seller was their private secluded beach area which was perfect for an intimate celebration.
The couple entrusted the task of capturing their festivities in candid beauty to the talented team of Shutterdown. Flawless ornaments from Hazoorilal Legacy lent a generous dose of glamour to the bride while her flawless looks were created by Naina Jain, Amrit Kaur and Meera Sakhrani for the different functions.
The 3-day festivities kicked off with a Sufi night welcome dinner where all the guests settled in and got the chance to mingle. A formal dress code of black and red contributed to a stunning sight as the couple along with their guests dazzled in spectacular ensembles.
The vibrant day time Mehndi function was a riot of color with pink and floral drapes and props with a rainbow-colored canopy. The bride donned a mirror-work ivory lehenga by Abhinav Mishra teamed with floral jewelry, while the groom complemented her outfit in a classic ivory Bandi jacket and kurta combination.
An LED studded archway welcomed one to the Sangeet night with warm golden decor. There were spectacular performances with a whole lot of fun. The groom looked suave in a black Shantanu and Nikhil sherwani while the bride twirled gracefully in an intricate cream lehenga with red accents by Falguni and Shane Peacock.
The romantic beach wedding with soft pink and floral decor was everything the bride had ever dreamed off. In stunning pink ensembles by Sabyasachi Mukherjee accessorized with opulent gems, the couple exuded royalty as they took their pheras under a magnificent floral mandap.
The festivities wrapped up with a grandiose reception dinner. Resplendent hues of red and gold bathed the event as a floral canopy and vintage chandeliers lent a regal charm to the evening. The groom looked dapper in a Rohit Bahl Bandhgala suit while the bride dazzled in a shimmering lehenga by Manish Malhotra.
