Simran and Mohit’s wedding in Hyderabad included Punjabi and Gujarati marriage rituals, impressive decor for different functions and lots of dancing.
College sweethearts Simran and Mohit could never have predicted that they would tie the knot one day. Read about how they planned their wedding celebrations which included a regal Nawabi night, alongside beautiful Punjabi and Gujarati rituals.
How We Met
“Mohit and I met when we were in college. He was my senior and it was love at first sight for me to be honest. I didn’t really know his name nor did I know anything about him. Then one day on Facebook, a friend of mine uploaded a photo in which he was there. It was from there that I got to know his name and we instantly connected on Facebook. Then slowly we started talking and after a few days he asked me out and then we eventually started seeing each other. We dated each other for three years before finally getting married.”
Simran and Mohit’s ‘haldi’ (turmeric application) function’s decor included yellow as the dominant color, with other shades such as bright pink and orange beautifully incorporated into the setup. The function was hosted on the lawns of the Leonia Holistic Destination which were decorated with beautiful florals and quirky props such as tassels and ‘chakras’ (wheels) strung from tree branches. The bride wore a gorgeous self-designed coral outfit followed by a beautiful yellow one for this function.
The sangeet was a fun evening filled with dance performances. The energy at this function was infectious, and it was hard to spot a single person who wasn’t shaking a leg. The couple made sure there were great food and drinks to go around. The decor for this evening was reminiscent of majestic opulence. To match all the heady ambiance, Simran wore a stunning red gown by Saroj Jalan that kept her looking groovy through the night, and Mohit matched her look in style by donning a classic bandh gala ensemble.
For the unique and exclusive ‘Nawabi Night’, the couple made sure they looked royal in their ensembles. The decor was regal and picture-perfect with its majestic vibe which the guests loved. This lively event served as an ideal start for the rest of the traditional ceremonies.
The decor for the beautiful gurudwara wedding was simple and sophisticated and included beautiful blush tones and a pop of pink. Since pastel tones were prevalent throughout this ceremony, Simran wore a beautiful pink toned lehenga. She accessorized her attire with a pink net dupatta over her head and stunning gold jewellery. Her makeup artist made sure that her look was kept subtle and chic, with an emphasis on the eye makeup. Mohit looked like an erstwhile Maharaja in a sherwani and a ‘safa’ (turban) which beautifully contrasted with Simran’s lehenga.
The couple wanted their Gujarati wedding ceremony to have a timeless appeal, therefore, it consisted of many royal elements. From the classically beautiful styling to the bright lights and a grand welcoming entrance, the decor was impressive all the way through. Simran wore a dazzling lehenga from Behind the Seams by Tanvi and Sonali, and Mohit looked handsome in an outfit from Chitwan Naredi.
After the more formal atmosphere of the religious ceremonies, the reception was a livelier event which was planned with a gorgeous theme in mind. Bright lights, floral decoration, and chandeliers made the entire venue look chic and dreamy. Simran wore a beautiful crimson creation with glittery details by Manish Malhotra, while Mohit kept his look classic in a dapper suit.
