Clubhouse Mantri Espana & The Radisson Blu, Outer Ring Road, Bengaluru
The groom got in touch with us from New York and he wanted us to help his parents with the major part of the planning apart from the Muhurtham, which was going to be handled by the bride’s side
The invites were designed by Aruna Guhan, Chennai. They were a royal blue with a custom designed Indian motif and font that were used in all other stationery and design aspects.
The festivities began with the groom's house being decorated with orange and yellow marigold.
Our hospitality started from the moment guests landed in Bangalore Airport. Waiting for them in their rooms were custom packed Welcome Hampers and Travel Kits with a welcome note and the programme for the duration of their stay.
The Mehendi was at the Clubhouse of Mantri Espana. The colours were pink, orange and yellow. We created a cosy space in the hall using divans with themed coloured upholstery. The decor was woollen tassels in the theme colours with brass bells hanging overhead. The afternoon was filled with fun and good cheer.
The Sangeet was themed around the couples love for travel and theatre. The entry board was like a 70's ‘Now Showing’ board with bulbs in the frame. The entry was a typical premier red carpet with lights and a bulb framework doorway. The main stage had a large screen with bougainvillea and Mughal architectural elements highlighted with a bulb framework to create a dramatic theatrical effect. Each table had tubs of popcorn, a playbill with details of all the performances and performers of the evening with a handmade snow globe of famous Indian monuments.
The background of the photo booth was a large painting of a Kathakali dancer, courtesy of the hotel, with the bulb framework accompanied with quirky Indian props.
The guestbook was a world map on which guests could pin postcards of places from around the world with suggestions of adventures the couple can take when they visit.
The Sera Bandi and Baraat was boisterous and pomp in true Punjabi style.
The reception was formal and elegant with flowers taking centre stage in the decor. The main stage had a green wall with flowers and they entry arch was a wooden frame with floral work alongside it was a welcome board adorned with flowers.
Each guest was given a custom made gift box of tea from the groom's fathers’ tea company.
All in all this wedding was our big fat Indian wedding.

We organised the transport, accommodation and put together all the welcome kits in each hotel room for all guests of the groom’s family. The look and feel for all three events were custom designed to the spaces and thought of to bring out the personality of the couple. We handmade the snow globe, custom designed the photo booth, backdrop and guestbook at the Sangeet. We also organised the Mehendi wali, the dhol and band for the Baraat, the safa wala and all the ceremonial requirements.
