Our series, ‘Featured Weddings’ brings you wonderful moments from weddings held at the finest venues across different cities. Here, we bring you details from Preeti and Naveen’s wedding celebrations in Jodhpur.
The wedding festivities were celebrated across three different locations in Jodhpur. The cocktail party at Hotel Pratap Niwas, the Sangeet at Hotel Balsamand Lake Palace while the Mehndi, Wedding and Reception were held at the Taj Gateway Hotel.
The festivities were kicked off with a lavish cocktail party at Hotel Pratap Niwas Palace, on the outskirts of Jodhpur. Newly restored, the heritage property is typical of the architectural brilliance of Mewar and features the unmatchable traditional hospitality of Marwar.
The exuberance travelled to the Taj Gateway Hotel for a poolside mehndi ceremony. A team of garba dancers performed to welcome the bride and groom to the ceremony. As the rituals were underway, guests had a chance to visit various stalls set up for their entertainment which included Rajasthani juttis and bandhej duppatas, a tarot card reader, a palmist and numerology experts. Rekha Rao of Balika Vadhu sang mehndi songs making the ceremony exceptionally pleasant.
Taking us one step closer to the wedding ceremony was the Sangeet Night at Hotel Balsamand Lake Palace, one of the Jodhpur’s finest heritage hotels and the perfect place to experience the opulence and elegance of a bygone era. The luxurious venue was enhanced with floral arrangements and elegant upholstery.
Dressed in an incredible golden and crème bridal gown, the bride looked regal as she walked down the aisle. The evening was rendered sublime by a performance by Indian Idol winner, Abhijeet Sawant. Laadi, Winner of GIWA-2015 Best Choreographer Award choreographed the scintillating dance performances.
And then it was time for the wedding! The charm of a palace wedding turns wedding ceremonies into grand gestures and majestic moments. The groom made his entry on an elephant through the palace gates, festooned with flowers to resemble peacocks dancing. As he made his way towards his bride, waiting for a glimpse of him, guests waited by the beautifully decorated vedi. The couple then took their vows at the balsam and lake palace.
The celebrations ended in a crescendo – the reception at the Taj Gateway Hotel in Jodhpur City. The floral arrangements, décor, lighting – everything was perfectly set. The couple arrived in a vintage car while the entertainers, including the Silver String band made the evening very special.
