Ruchika Hiranandani and Akash Nebhnani, The St. Regis Mumbai
Decked up with white blooms and acrylic pillars, this couple’s open-air wedding mandap was a serene one.
Ruchika Hiranandani and Akash Nebhnani’s union in Mumbai was a serene and close-knit one where the couple quietly celebrated their love amidst their loved ones. With themes that reflected their personalities, their wedding was planned by WeddingSutra Favorite – The Wedding Ties who understood their vision accurately.
Chinmai Kedia shares, “They wanted their wedding to be more than just a standard ceremony and reception. Their dream was to create an experience that truly embodied their unique love story. To make this dream a reality, we embarked on a detailed planning process. We paid meticulous attention to every element, ensuring that from the grand gestures to the tiniest details, their love story was at the heart of every moment during their special day.”
The indoor mehndi was a vibrant occasion with marigolds and roses being dominant in the decor. Earthen pots brimming with garlands of marigolds, rustic wooden crates along with mirror-work-encrusted parasols added a dash of desi quirk to the venue.
Lit up by moody lights and gold elements, the cocktail was a glamorous event at the Imperial Ballroom where the couple made a stylish entry. Twinkling fairy lights and LED signage were also a part of the decor. The couple freely mingled with their guests and had a gala time shaking a leg.
Wedding and Reception
The wedding festivities started off with a baraat celebration where Akash entered seated atop a vintage car. The mandap followed an open-air white decor theme with acrylic pillars on the Astor Terrace. Suspended blooms and a crystal chandelier swayed in the wind against the dramatic sunset sky. The wedding followed Sindhi traditions and the wedding also included an adorable vow-reading ceremony.
The white-hued reception looked dreamy with a floral wall serving as a backdrop for the stage. After the cake-cutting ceremony, toasts were raised for the couple’s happily ever after.
