Arranged marriages are so in trend right now. That’s when the actual love stories after the weddings begin, we believe. With one such wedding where the bride and groom first met at the temple, bestowed with blessings from family and friends alike at the place of the God, we are here again to get you all inspired! Let’s hear it from the beautiful bride herself.
“I am a dentist at Ramachandra and my husband, Nithin works at Brakes India. One week after we met at the temple, everything fell in place and we decided to take our vows on an auspicious day. Both my families were onlooking the big day and so was I.
We were engaged to each other on the 2nd of April at Beverly Hotel, Chennai. I wore a silk saree from @prakashsilksandsarees#, Kanchipuram. Nithin wore a Kurta from @mokshaa#, Chennai. My makeup was by @bronzer-bridal-makeup-artist# . I must admit that she was so calm and polite through-out the event. My family messed up and caused few a delay but she was very punctual and was there at the prescribed time. She made me look very beautiful even though I delayed a bit. I loved how I looked that day.
Decorations were by Sekar Flowers, Chennai. They were known to my uncle and he referred them to us. They did a great job with the decorations.
Photography for all the events were by Weddings by @wfa#. Everybody were amused at their work. They had so many people in their crew. If I’m not wrong, there were almost 10 to 12 of them and they kept clicking pictures everywhere. We were so satisfied by their work.All my jewelry were from @vbj#, Chennai.
We had four events on the whole. It was the Sangeet, Nalungu, Reception and the Wedding. The wedding took place at M.K.Mahal, Chennai.
For the Sangeet, I wore a lehenga from Man Mandir. Nithin wore a customized outfit. His kurta was from @nalli-silks# and his over-coat was from @manyavar#, Chennai.One best thing about my Sangeet was that I saw my parents dance for the very first time. It was arranged by Nithin’s friends and I thoroughly enjoyed those moments.
For the reception, I wore a lehenga from Calcutta. I saw it at an exhibition here at Hyatt and wanted to buy it for my wedding and so did I. Nithin wore a suit from @raymond-made-to-measure#. For the wedding again, I wore Silk saree from @prakashsilksandsarees#, Kanchipuram and Nithin, the traditional silk shirt and dhothi from @nalli-silks#.
Makeup for all the 3 events were by @make-up-ibrahim#. I’ve booked him for my big day 6 months prior since I did not want anyone else to do it rather than him. Needless to say, his work is exceptional. He never over does the makeup and it was so on point. All my friends have been wanting to book him too.
The decorations for the wedding and reception were by the people there at the wedding hall and I customized a bit according to my preferences.The best part of the wedding was the surprise entry with poppers my cousin did. I was so at awe the whole time.
Catering was done by Murthy Caterers. They are the best in town and we all knew why. Their food spreads were so tasty and everyone till today keeps talking about that.
I took skincare advise from Dr. Maya Vedhamurthy and I went for few facials. A couple of days before the wedding, I underwent a bridal skin peel for brightening and glow.We went to Bali for a week for our honeymoon. It was a very beautiful place and we stayed at a private resort there.
Shopzters is one of the reasons for brides like me to plan our weddings without any hassle. I kept screenshotting most pictures and send it across to my mom and asked her for things exactly like the ones in the pictures. Dream weddings are made true through your help.”
