About The Couple

Their Tale

Gaurav and Nisha were introduced to each other through a mutual friend at a Foo Fighters concert in Singapore and fell in love at first! Spilling the beans further, the bride says, “We have hectic schedules from a work perspective. I am a Lawyer by profession and Gaurav, a consultant, and hence, we keep similar hours and levels of stress / workload. Gaurav also travels quite a bit for work. We absolutely love doing some sort of physical activity together; whether we run or play a sport, we love being outdoors and being active when we get a chance over the weekends. And equally as much, we love our quiet time alone that we can get over the weekends. We’ll typically sit together, watch some mindless TV (read and take a nap, all simultaneously) and maybe have some wine by evening, while ordering food in. That’s typically what we’d like to do on a weekend.”

The Details

Wedding Planning & Details

Celebrated over two days at The Raviz Kovalam, this destination soiree took almost a year to come to life from scratch! While the team of The A-Cube Project planned and designed the entire wedding in a way that took our breaths away, the production team Wedding Factory were the perfect allies they could have asked for!

And because a masterpiece like this deserves to be framed with equal quintessence, Nikhil Shahstri, Magic Motion Media, and Ben captured all the revelries to the tee with an unparalleled charm.

La Dolce Vita- Welcome Lunch

As an ode to their super memorable ten day vacation in Italy, a welcome lunch centered around the picturesque country kick-started the celebrations. Fashioned with an underlying subdued tone of white, pastel pink, pastel green, and earthy hues, a lot of quirky and unique elements were incorporated to capture the romantic Italy vibes in the setup.

While truckloads of succulents and distinctive florals and foliage marked the entire space, pieces like olive oil bottles, breads, olives, wood chopping boards, wine bottles, mason jars, jute fabric, and baskets stitched it all brilliantly!

Nisha's Look

While Gaurav donned a pristine white kurta, Nisha too slipped into a plain white saree with gold borders and an embellished gold blouse. She went absolutely natural with her look and accessorized her outfit with the daintiest jewellery!

Love In The Tropics- Beachside Pheras

A hearty reflection of the duo’s colorful yet subtle personalities, Nisha’s Bohemian spirit, and the natural beauty of Kerala, this tropical themed ceremony couldn’t have got dreamier!

The setup done by the beach was a riot of wild floral arrangements, colorful blooms, pampas, and lush greens entwining with an elegant tepee mandap, matching entrance, and casual lounge seating.

Buntings, miniature bulb strings, and fairy lights further added a warm and romantic touch to the entire sundowner setup.

Nisha's Wedding Look

For her beachy pheras, Nisha dolled up in a breathtaking Ivory lehenga laden with intricate thread & sequin embroidered florals all over. She went gorgeously minimal on her jewellery and paired her outfit with a quaint uncut diamond and pearl set with a matching kundan maang-tikka.

Subtle makeup, pink lips, and a tiny bindi completed her look flawlessly.

Gaurav's Wedding Look

Gaurav complemented his lady love in an Ivory sherwani which too was replete with fine floral gold embroideries. A beige safa and a matching floral stole added a bewitching dash of royal to his overall look!

Watermelon Soiree- Holi Brunch

The day two kicked-off on a super joyous and colorful note with a holi brunch themed around the bride’s favorite fruit ‘watermelons’.

A rejuvenating and chiller event heavily marked in hues of deep red, the watermelon soiree was a magnificent blend of hefty floral & foliage decorations, wooden accents, casual seating lounges, and of course, watermelons.

Furthermore, boho chic elements like hammocks, cane lamps, jute rugs, succulents, colorful cushions, macrame planters etc., added to the entire vibe.

Couple Looks

The duo went absolutely casual with their looks for this boisterous affair.

While Gaurav donned a jade green kurta and nehru jacket ensemble, Nisha wore a white Anarkali marked with minimal thread and sequin embroideries and mirror work.

She chose elegant turquoise enameled jhumkis for her jewellery and pulled off a super comfy look with sheer grace.

Reels Of Love- Cocktail Evening

For the finale of this two day extravaganza, the cocktail evening was all about making merry under the open skies while Mad Orange Fireworks performed and The Sound of Music was screened!

The retro themed decor boasted of intimate corners, cozy lounges, white florals, lush greens, wooden accents, low tepees, and a popcorn cart.

Fairy lights, stringed bulbs & lamps, and other vintage elements like cameras, reels, miniature clapperboards, table clocks, frames, etc., quirked up the entire space.

Couple Looks

For the evening, Nisha went super casual and comfy in a teal & Indigo-hued jumpsuit which she teamed up with statement earrings.

Gaurav, on the other hand, looked absolutely dapper in a navy and beige Jodhpuri suit.
