How We Met
“Rajan and I met through an arranged marriage setting. It happened just seven days before he left for London and in this short period, we met, talked to each other and exchanged rings. Everything happened in a blink of an eye, and we believe that all of it was planned and destined to be. We had nine months before the wedding which included a couple of meetings that helped us understand each other better. Sometimes it was difficult due to the difference in time zones, but we made it work.”

Wedding Venue
“The wedding venue was a major decision for all of us. I had always dreamt of a royal palace wedding with all the traditions and special ceremonies. We started visiting different locations and finally picked Orchha Palace & Convention Centre in Madhya Pradesh since it was easily accessible from our hometowns. The elegance of the palace caught our eyes immediately, and everything in it was perfect, including the massive ballroom, beautiful lawn adorned with rocks and sculptures. The poolside arrangements were perfect for the theme we had planned for our cocktail night.”

Wedding Planning
“Thanks to WeddingSutra, we found the perfect photographer for our needs. Here, I’d like to give a big shout out to Himanshu Jangid Photography and his team who captured our wedding moments in a special way. Our wedding planners were based in Lucknow, and their ideas and color schemes were perfectly designed keeping in mind the location. ”

Cocktail and Sangeet
“The poolside cocktail night with LED lighting set up in all four directions gave full coverage to the event. The colors used went perfectly with the cocktail mood of all the guests. It was a crazy night with fun, family, friends, and love. A wine-dine setup was arranged, and the entire venue was illuminated with the beautiful color scheme.”

Pheras
“The wedding decor included a temple-shaped mandap adorned all over with jasmine blooms. I made an entry on a floral palanquin and walked to the mandap on a bed of roses. It was such a gorgeous setup that our guests talk about it until today. Every girl dreams of wearing a Sabyasachi or a Manish Malhotra creation on her big day. I too had big dreams for my big day, and there was only one person who could have justified the look I dreamt of. My sister designed my wedding lehenga with crystal and zardozi embellishments. It featured paintings of Mughal beauties adorning themselves for the emperors in the panels of the skirt. The tassels were eye-catching with our names ‘Rajan-Vishakha’ written in bold letters. I carried two dupattas and a beautifully embroidered belt around the waist. The lehenga was based on a concept of royalty and grandeur. Rajan's outfit matched my look very well.”

Reception
“The theme of the royal reception matched the palace venue perfectly. Rajan and I made an entry in regal avatars. I chose an Arabic makeover for the reception and wore a stunning ensemble with a magnificent tail. The Arabian ‘passa’ (forehead ornament) gave me accentuated the royal bridal vibe.”

Advice for couples
“This is the only day you’ll feel like a prince and a princess! So couples should live in the moment, cherish each second and make beautiful memories. Just remember, this is the biggest day of your lives so be positive, leave the flaws behind and head towards a new beginning with love and laughter.”
