About Me
Kalki through the looking-glass

As we entered Amy Billimoria’s House of Design in Juhu, Mumbai, we knew we were not in Kansas anymore. The store exudes a happy feeling. From the décor of the store to the clothes housed within it, we could tell that this was going to be a departure from a traditional bridal makeover.

About Me
Sonam and Paras Modi share their marriage mantra…

We met at a common friend’s wedding in Lonavla, after which we started meeting almost twice a week with friends. We got along like a house on fire; it felt so comfortable talking to each other, it was like we were long lost friends. The initial courtship felt more like a game of hide and seek. We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

How to adopt the Vrindavan theme in your wedding ceremonies

Highlight your cultural roots by making the most of mythological themes across various wedding ceremonies

Much of India’s customs and traditions can be traced to its mythology like the Mahabharata and Ramayana. Musicals, plays and other forms of artistic performances are being adopted to preserve our culture, and couples are using their wedding as a platform to reconnect with their spiritual roots.

 

When Anushka Shah and Shilp Parekh decided to tie the knot, they wanted to highlight the culture and folklore of their native state, Gujarat. They enlisted wedding planner Ekta Saigal of Ekta Saigal Weddings, who shares, “Since the couple wanted their wedding to reflect their roots in some way, we settled on the Vrindavan theme for their outdoor mehendi party. We recreated the ambience and hung life-size paintings of Lord Krishna and Radha in a playful mood, interspersed with green and white foliage. Ornate jhoolas entwined with flowers were erected all over the venue. Kathiawadi drummers led the couple’s entry under a beautiful floral umbrella.”

The wedding coincided with Gujarat’s kite-flying festival, Uttarayan, so Saigal brought the much-loved festival to life by arranging for professional kite-flyers to fly gigantic colourful kites as families danced to the raas garba.

 

As it turns out, Vrindavan is a popular inspiration for nuptials; meet Ankita Vaid and Kartik Aggarwal, who hosted a Vrindavanthemed celebration for their nuptials. A live act depicting the story of Radha and Krishna was the highlight of their wedding as the performance culminated with the actors leading the couple to their jai mala ceremony.
