Namrata and Oliver, JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu

How They Met
“Namrata and I met at a wedding in Delhi where my friend was marrying her cousin. I thought she was a great girl and kept complimenting her at every opportunity. Through the course of three wedding events, we got to know each other better and even went out on a date before I headed back to the UK and her to Mumbai. We agreed it would be nice to stay in touch, so we spoke a lot over Skype before going back and forth between the two countries visiting each other.”

The Proposal
“I first asked Namrata's family for permission to marry her, then I surprised her over Christmas in 2017. I flew to India and went down on one knee at a rooftop hotel that looked over the sea at sunset.”

Wedding Venue
“Our wedding was hosted at the JW Marriott Mumbai Juhu. Our outdoor ceremony was not far from the sea.”

Wedding Planning
“We had DreamzKrraft to take care of our wedding decor. They understood the vision we had for our dream day and gave us exactly what we were looking for. The team from Aniket Mazumdar Photography were our wedding photographers and the pictures that they clicked are some of the most beautiful reminders of our wedding.”

Wedding Functions

Haldi
“This was the first traditional event that we hosted and the decor displayed shades of pink and gold. Tassel-like elements with gold details covered a large expanse of the ceiling, making the venue look festive without going overboard.”

Mehndi
“Our haldi was followed by the mehndi. The venue, as well as decor for this event, was the same as for the previous one. Namrata looked stunning in a green Riddhi Mehra lehenga while I opted for a white kurta from Anita Dongre.”

Wedding
“Pink and white were the colors that ruled our wedding. We had an abundance of roses in these shades as part of the floral arrangements. Staying true to her Indian traditions, Namrata chose to wear red and looked absolutely stunning in a lehenga by Anita Dongre. I complimented her attire in a white sherwani.”
