About The Couple

Their Tale

Anj, a dentist and a fashion blogger by the name Anj & Pri, and Ravi, a self-employed trader, met each other about eight years back at Kings College, London. They both were best of friends until after two years when they started dating and finally end up getting married in 2020.

The Proposal

Anj was on her all girls’ vacation in Mykonos when Ravi flew down there and took her by surprise. Even though they always knew that it’s going to be the two of them together forever, the two hadn’t really spoken about anything to do with marriage. And hence, the proposal was a complete surprise for her and it left her absolutely speechless.

The Details

Wedding Planning & Details

Anj and Ravi’s intimate yet grand soiree was hosted at the plush properties of Fateh Garh, Udaipur against a picturesque view and beneath the open skies. The wedding was flawlessly planned by AKA: A Klass Apart and was further exceptionally styled and decked up by The A-Cube Project.

And while the couple reveled in the effervescent beauty of their wedding celebrations, FotoConto and Magic Motion Media used the magic of their lens and captured everything perfectly!

Mehndi - Welcome Party

A Marrakesh themed event, the welcome party boasted of a super chilled vibe where people could unwind and have a relaxing time. The space was marked in comfy seating lounges done in earthy tones and amped up with a pop of pink and maroon. Floral & foliage arrangements, fairy lights, and bulb strings added a heavenly touch to the entire setting.

To further delve into the theme, while Arabic music set the tone of the evening, live stations like a ‘make your own scent’ perfume bar, a mini souk with bangle maker, and parrot fortune teller kept people entertained.

Anj's Look

Anj for the easy breezy affair, slipped into a vivacious lime green Tamanna Punjabi Kapoor lehenga laden with colorful embroideries, gota patti, and mirror work. She teamed up her outfit with exquisite cascading meenakari jewellery from Goenka Jewels that perfectly complemented her outfit.

Arpita Karania further elevated her look by giving her a heavy & high tousled ponytail, pale pink lips, and soft gold eyes.

Ravi's Look

Ravi zestfully complemented Anj’s look in a white and yellow kurta and bandhgala set from Varun Bahl pulling off a casual and comfy look.

Ganesh Puja - Haldi

The space for the Ganesh Puja and the following fun haldi ceremony was decked up in spirited hues of bright pinks and yellows. Be it the seating areas, the pompom and gota stringed ceiling, or the foliage themed seating in the center, every inch of the setup was breathing in pretty hues and cheerful vibes.

Anj's Look

While Ravi donned a printed Varun Bahl vest for the puja, Anj slipped into a lightweight floral Sabyasachi saree with a shimmery mauve blouse. While an elaborate polki set from Goenka Jewels took her look a notch above, her subdued makeup and a high messy bun also added umpteens to her look.

Later, for her haldi, she changed into a simplistic yellow ensemble sans jewellery looking effortlessly chic.

The Wedding Day

Setup at the terrace next to the infinity pool, the mandap for the pheras was a sight to behold. While the entire space was marked with lush greens and pastel hued florals with a bright pop of crimson, the mandap clearly stole the show. With a heavy cascading Wisteria ceiling, and the pillars done in an ombre pattern, it couldn’t have got any dreamier than this!

Anj's Bridal Look

Anj, for her pheras, looked absolutely ravishing in a powder blue and crimson Manish Malhotra lehenga replete with sequin embroideries and work all over. The flamboyant polki & pearl choker set with stunning kadas lent her a super regal aura making her look like a true royalty!

While she pulled off a loose bridal bun with wisps, Arpita gave her a deep red lip coupled with soft shimmery eyes for that right tinch of bling!

Ravi's Wedding Look

Ravi, for the D-day opted for a classic look that was a blend of traditional and modern. He suited himself with a custom Varun Bahl sherwani in Ivory done in intricate floral embroideries in varied hues of pink. He teamed up his outfit with a maroon stole, a beige safa, and a dainty three-stringed pearl mala.

The Sangeet Night

The afternoon pheras were followed by a Disney inspired enchanted forest themed Sangeet evening that quite literally transported the guests into a magical wonderland.

The decor heavily boasted of lush greens, stringed bulbs and fairy lights, rustic tablescapes and photo ops, and a botanical gin bar. Elements like candles, books, retro clocks, bright pink florals, kettles, teacups, vases, Disney signages (curated by Hiral Mehta) etc, were brilliantly infused to curate a setting that was all forest-y yet classy!

Anj's Look

For the evening, Anj simply and quite brilliantly altered her traditional wedding look into a glamorous one. She changed her bridal blouse into a deep bottle green velvet crop top by Manish Malhotra which amazingly matched with her bridal lehenga skirt. Boasting of a deep plunging neckline, chic shoulder sleeves, and a ruffled dupatta drape, her top was a clear showstopper.

She paired it all up with a glorious choker, left her hair in soft curls, and went nude on her lips.

 

Pool Party

The next day kicked off on a laidback and a colorful pool party brunch themed around ‘Mykonos meets Nikki Beach’ as Ravi proposed to Anj in Mykonos and they both love Nikki Beach Clubs.

With jazzy house music and a decor done in florals, foliage, and Boho elements like cane baskets, planters and macrame, and an edgy bar, the brunch was nothing less than a beach party in Europe.

The Reception

A super elegant and formal reception themed Black Tie, this event saw a glam and opulent decor that made it a bedazzling finale to end this soiree with.

Centered around a white and mirror theme, white drapes and layovers, ghost chairs, mirrored table tops, white floral decor and candles made up for the entire decor. Lighting played a huge role to lend a warm and cozy vibe and hence, a lot of fairy lights, and chandeliers were also incorporated.

Couple Looks

The duo too went all glam for their looks for this night of partying. While Ravi wore a brown and black Hugo Boss tuxedo, Anj looked bewitching in a blingy and heavily embellished metallic Manish Malhotra gown.

She accessorized her look with striking diamond earrings and a watch, while Arpita left her luscious mane open in loose waves and gave her a rather subdued look with bold eyes.
