Traditional Indian weddings are always rich in detail, colour and culture. We can’t help but love the vibrant emotions in these big family affairs that include everyone!

Dhanya: “For the wedding ceremony, we went for something classic, traditional and elegant, our primary colours being white and gold with accents of maroon and deep purple. It was a Malayalee wedding ceremony, and although we kept the traditional elements, there were many contemporary features present as well.

“One of the most memorable moments for us was seeing each other for the first time at the altar. Another was when we finally tied the knot after nine long years of dating!

“For the wedding dinner, we wanted a romantic and intimate vibe. We chose the venue as it perfectly fit the ambience that we were looking for. One of the unique things at the dinner was a candy buffet. The guests, young and old, thoroughly enjoyed it!

“The favours were DIY small, square, deep purple boxes topped with a customised tag. In each favour box was a Ferrero Rocher chocolate.

“We also had a DIY photobooth which was a treat too. Not to mention the groom himself was the DJ for the night.”

Tips for brides-to-be: “Do not stress (easier said than done, I know). But once it’s all over, you’ll realise how silly it was to have been petty, and fussed over the smallest things. On that day, the truth is, no one realises if the flowers were the exact shade you picked out or not. So PLAN, DELEGATE and LET GO. Do not micromanage!”
