What happens when a Gujju from Mumbai and a Dilli ka sardar get married? We’ll tell you - they have loads of fun and they create magic. And what about the ceremonies, you ask? Well, let’s just say they are anything but normal! This is exactly what happened when Ketki and Jaiveer got married. They tied the knot in Mumbai followed by a beautiful forest-themed reception in Delhi. But, it was nothing like a regular reception, where the couple is made to sit on a stage and everybody comes to congratulate them. Held at Vista in Delhi, it was more like a fun gathering where everybody just celebrated the gorgeous union of these two lovebirds.
Everything from the couple’s and the guests’ outfits to the decor was splendid and we cannot stop swooning over the pretty pictures taken by Through the Barrel. The amazing hashtag they came up with had us in splits - it’s #tandooridhokla. There were many more cool details that we loved and so we got talking to the groom’s sister Amrita. She told us everything we wanted to know about this unique couple’s unique reception. Read on to find out…
Over to Amanat...
“Since the wedding was going to be in Bombay, we knew we had to do one function in Delhi for all our friends and family. We didn't want to call it a reception as it sounded too formal. Besides roughly knowing what we wanted, we knew what we didn't want. We didn't want a stage where guests came to meet the couple. We wanted to have a party where we celebrated the newlyweds and they were as much a part of the fun. We decided to do a day to night party starting from lunch to a sundowner.”
“We started at 1 pm and ended at midnight! My mom loves nature. She loves greenery and the environment. So, when we finalised the location, we knew that we wanted to use it for its natural setting as much as possible. We developed and conceptualised a theme of a green and white enchanted forest. More than flowers, we wanted there to be a lot of greenery. We wanted to semi cover it as we needed to make provision for lights since we anticipated the event going on till late in the evening. We wanted fun and quirky details - the bicycle, the hashtag on the grass and everything. All this helped in making the party less formal looking and more fun.
A big shout out to our one and only favourite - Tarun Tahiliani, who helped us conceptualise the whole decor and put us in touch with the very talented and amazing decorators Ritesh and Akhil. They transformed the space into the most beautiful and magical scenario we could imagine. They really turned our vision into reality. The party would definitely not have been the same without DJ Bhavuk (he was the first call we made when we finalised on a date to make sure he would be available). And a big shout out to Punit SikandandLama for their amazing hospitality teams.”
And just in case you were wondering, the bride’s stunning outfit was done by Tarun Tahiliani and the groom’s outfit was from Sahil Aneja. The make-up artist behind the bride’s stunning look was Jasmeet Kapany.
This was one helluva good looking sundowner and we are still enchanted. Are you too?
