Saachi and Nikhil, Taj Lands End, Mumbai
Saachi and Nikhil's wedding showcased their love for each other in a stunning setting.
Saachi and Nikhil celebrated their deep love and friendship by tying the knot at the sea-facing Taj Lands End, Mumbai, which offers stunning views and standout hospitality. Capturing beautiful moments from the happy occasion was WeddingSutra Favourite – Navin Varma Photography. Here, the couple share some highlights of the festivities.
How They Met
Nikhil shares, “Saachi and I were work buddies and loved spending time with each other. She was this bright young beautiful girl, bubbling with energy and had countless stories to tell. Amidst all the flirting, somewhere deep down, we knew this was serious. One fine day, sitting at Bandstand, she said to me that what we have wouldn’t last for long as she was planning to move abroad for further studies. We worked together to get her admissions in place and finally, the time had come. After she got through her dream college, I planned on starting an advertising agency. As the time came closer for her to leave, she decided to choose both of us. She turned down her offer to be a part of my dreams. A dream called Plotters Ink. I proposed to her with a song, and she responded with a ‘Yes.’ It was the formal beginning of a beautiful yet rigorous journey of our love story. The last seven years have been the most beautiful years of our lives just because we had each other to share them with.”
“I wanted an outdoor setting within Mumbai where Nikhil and I could capture our key moments in the golden hour light at sunset, and Taj Lands End was the best choice.”
The bride, being a graphic designer, coordinated all the decor details and color schemes. Sahil from Fleuron instantly connected with the brief and delivered a fabulous job. He planned the look around a red, gold, and white color palette with a hint of magenta. Every detail was coordinated with the outfits of family members and the decor. The vineyard style chairs, mood lighting, tents, benches and wooden centerpieces with twigs made everything look charming. Saachi shared, “Navin Varma was the best man to capture the moments of all the events with his artistic views. He, along with his team, captured every mood and every emotion perfectly. The team always adhered to all our requests and demands, and were extremely punctual.”
Saachi had an intimate haldi ceremony with just her immediate family members and close friends in attendance. She wore a cheery yellow suit for the ceremony, and all her family members color-coordinated their ensembles with her.
For their wedding, the couple made the venue and mandap look fresh by adding white and red flowers with green leaves and twigs. The wooden decor elements such as benches, lanterns, crates and logs added a little rustic charm. The groom entered in an open car, wearing a custom piece from Legacy, designed by Saachi. The bride walked down the aisle looking ethereal in a red lehenga with a magenta dupatta from Feathers n Flowers by Rimple Dhillon, which she paired with a stunning kundan set featuring green stones. The set was designed by Saachi’s mother.
The newly wedded couple chose the color of love, red, to reflect in the decor elements. Saachi’s champagne lehenga was from Sabyasachi Mukherjee, and she paired that with beautiful jewellery designed by her mother. The groom wore a custom-made black sherwani with a shawl from Legacy.
The couple was very keen on a crazy after-party post their reception. The party was nothing short of madness and lasted till 8 am. Saachi put on her dancing shoes with her dazzling metallic dress in a copper shade and had a great time with Nikhil and her loved ones.
