PLANNING: Planning our engagement party took roughly six months. A lot of my inspiration was gathered from blogs, Instagram, Pinterest, and other social media. It can get quite overwhelming when you see so many creative and amazing ideas and you want them all for your event! I also felt that it was important to tie the theme with my outfit, and Anushree Reddy’s lehenga reflected the theme perfectly.
VISION: My vision was for us to have a modern engagement party with a vintage and rustic theme, which included lots of fresh flowers, a swing, birdcages, a candy buffet, fairy lights, and candles.
VENUE: Meadowbank Receptions in Victoria. I was quite particular about the theme and style of the party, and how I wanted it to look – which made finding the perfect venue quite time-consuming. But once we found Meadowbank Receptions, we knew it was perfect for us. We loved that it was contemporary, yet classic – and we loved the warm romance of the pool decorated with fairy lights and candles.
PHOTOGRAPHY: I am quite particular and fussy with photography so it took me quite some time to find someone whose work I loved. I don’t like it when images are too bright and colors can appear to be quite tacky (especially because Indians wear such bright colors) and Madeline Druce Photography was just the perfect photographer for our event. Her images were simple yet they effectively captured all our happy moments in the most natural light possible.
