About The Couple

Their Tale

Swati and Kamlesh met each other in their class almost a decade back when he got her e-mail address and the two became great friends. Their friendship soon blossomed into a relationship which lasted almost ten years before they finally decided to tie the knot.

The duo loves travelling and Kamlesh loves clicking it all in time and frames and hence, the couple started travel blogging. They love discovering new places, trying out new recipes, and music. For that matter, Kamlesh is an excellent singer while tabla, harmonium, violin, and piano is a mastered art by them.

The Proposal

For the proposal, Kamlesh decided to revel in the early days of their bond and decided to propose to Swati at a park by river Thames that they always went to as kids. He went down on his knees at a bench they always sat at and where Kamlesh had asked Swati out orginially. “It was just us and absolutely magical,” the bride says.

The Details

Wedding Planning & Details

The UK based duo’s destination wedding in Jaipur was one royal and romantic celebration designed and weaved gloriously by the team of Designer Events Inc.
While their team planned every single thing meticulously for the couple, the team of Naman Verma Photography captured the entire soiree in time and aesthetic frames that’ll please your eyes and satiate your souls.

The Colorful Mehndi

Set up in Samode’s Mughal Lawns, the fun and cheerful mehndi was a riot of colors, marigolds, and quirky elements like canopies, and a jhoola.

For the function, the couple coordinated in their Tarun Tahiliani ensembles in subtle hues. While Kamlesh donned an edgy pastel yellow kurta with Ivory dhoti pants, Swati slipped into an Ivory lehenga replete with colorful embroideries and teamed up with a melon orange dupatta.

She accessorized her look with a gorgeous polki & meenakari set from Purab Paschim and floral hand jewellery from Prune India. While hairstylist Ruchi Arya left her luscious locks half open, makeup artist Jasmeet Kapany gave her soft her soft and pretty subtle lip.

The Royal Sangeet

The hearty mehndi ceremony was followed by a red and gold themed sangeet in the evening for which the space was bedecked in a regal and palatial aura. While crystal candelabras and small glass candles marked the setup, the red and gold table settings and the ambient lighting set the tone.

Couple Looks

The duo went oh-so-royally contrasting for this event in their tastefully bespoke outfits. Kamlesh donned a bewitching marsala Tarun Tahiliani sherwani with cream trousers and looked absolutely dapper and stylish.

Swati went glamorously classy in her floor-length Rimple & Harpreet Narula ensemble done in an intricately embellished and multi-hued chevron pattern. She paired it up with oversized and statement chand-baalis from Amrapali that took her look a notch above.

While Jasmeet Kapany gave her pretty mauve eyes and a bold wine lip, Ruchi left Swati’s hair sleek and loose to frolic about in their own gorgeousness.

Pastel Themed Pheras

For the dreamy pheras, amidst the pastel chairs, an enchanting floral mandap done in sorbet-hued blooms and roses with a tuberose jaal ceiling stood like a magnificent sight to behold.

Swati's Wedding Look

Swati opted for a traditional red bridal look drenched in elegance and class and chose to wear a statement red Sabyasachi lehenga. An exquisite blend of flamboyant jewels from Tanishq and Ra Abta by Rahul further elevated her entire look making her look like a true maharani!

While Ruchi Arya gave Swati a neat mogra accentuated bun, Jasmeet gave her a subtle look with soft smokey eyes, a nude lip, and a tiny bindi.

Kamlesh's Wedding Look

Kamlesh looked like a true royalty in an Ivory sherwani which he teamed up with a beige stole and a safa. The bejewelled kalgi for safa and an elaborate pearl and polki mala added a bewitching charm to his princely look!

The Grand Reception

The gold and cream hued grand and classy reception was the perfect finale this regal celebration could have ended with. A riot of lush greens, white & peach florals, chandeliers, candles, and white and gold table settings, the evening saw opulence at its best.

Couple Looks

The couple slipped into classic hues for this lavish affair and looked absolutely magnetizing together. While Kamlesh looked handsome and crisp in a black and white jodhpuri, Swati frolicked about looking breathtaking in an Ivory & gold Anita Dongre lehenga.

She further infused the aesthetic beauty of a huge choker set from Ra Abta by Rahul with her outfit that accentuated her look by multifolds.

While soft shimmery eyes and a bold lip up her glam quotient, open wavy locks crowned with a neat puff subdued it all beautifully.

Tips From The Bride

  • Stay organised with a diary and to-do-lists to break the overall wedding into smaller, more manageable actions to stop
    becoming overwhelmed.
  • Have regular catch ups with your bridesmaids to ease the stress.
  • Don’t micro manage and worry on the specific details as chances are, you will not notice these on the day – find good planners and leave these in their hands.
