How They Met
“Simran and I were introduced to each other by my father’s friend in Kolkata. We exchanged numbers and continued to keep in touch. The more we spoke, the more it became clear that we were perfect for each other, and in about four months we knew that it was time to speak to our families and take this to the next level.”

Wedding Venue
“The venue for our wedding was finalized by my father. He had worked closely with the Taj Group and knew right from the start that the Taj Santacruz in Mumbai would be the perfect place for our nuptials. So the decision was made.”

Weddings By Shilpa & Sonika were our planners. They are an amazing team of professionals who do their best to treat their clients like family. Not only are they very warm but they are just as hardworking too. That’s what makes working with them such a joy.”

Wedding Functions

Sangeet
“As the first function in the line up of events, the sangeet played an important role in creating just the right tone for the nuptials. This event was all about contemporary glamour which was showcased wonderfully using fresh white flowers along with some tech features. A large LED screen was the backdrop for the stage. Golden candelabras smothered in baby’s breath blooms and holding lit candles made for charming centerpieces. All this brought to life the spectacular Victorian themed sangeet of Ishaan and Simran.”

Sufi Night
“As the name suggests, this evening was all about extending soulful musical performances to our guests, and the decor had an undeniable Middle Eastern vibe to it. The colors that dominated the venue were pink and purple, and the air was filled with the smell of fresh 'rajnigandhas' (tuberoses). Moroccan-style arches made for the backdrop of the stage and facing it were low seating arrangements for the guests. Shimmering drapes, brass jugs and a beautiful swing decorated with flowers were a part of the setting too.”

Wedding
“The baarat came in with an all women's band that pumped up the energy level. We then headed to the venue for the ceremony. Since the pheras have such a deep cultural significance, we chose colors that are traditionally considered auspicious for the decor. Red, orange, yellow and fuchsia was used across all elements that were a part of this setup. Our mandap in the lawn was decorated with marigolds, tuberoses and lots of golden bells. The mandap decor looked stunning, and the lighting only elevated its beauty further. We invited six priests to chant the mantras which added to the spiritual yet regal mood of the ceremony.”

Reception
“The reception was an extension of the wedding; therefore, the royal Indian wedding theme continued at this function as well. Rich red drapes lined the pathway to the venue and two large elephant structures covered in mirror pieces greeted our guests. The seating arrangement for us was particularly memorable. Our planners created a backdrop using Rajput-style paintings of a king and a queen and the red floral work added to the romantic mood. The Symphony Band was invited to play for our guests and they left everyone impressed with their beautiful music.”
