Dubai weddings are a dream come true for many couples. With Ankita and Munish’s wedding aptly themed #AnkiLandedOnTheMun, we got yet another opportunity to bring our sackful of ideas and create wedding events that would leave them and their guests gushing with joy for years to come.
The events were hosted at the beautiful Intercontinental Fujairah Resort, with guests flying in from all over the world. A lovely 2-hour drive from Dubai, the guests arriving for the 3-day event were welcomed with dhols and dance, concluding with a scrumptious dinner by the beach.
Day 2 saw a number of events lined up, starting off with the mehendi ceremony. Beautiful decor adorned the walls as the guests greeted one another and posed together. Gifts and shagun were exchanged with a lot of laughter, dancing, and posing.
The mehendi was followed by a Hawaiin luau where the couple and the guests engaged in some fun sports activities since it was their love of sports that brought the couple together. Games like table tennis, volleyball, badminton, and gully cricket were enthusiastically played by all. There was much cheer and the tiki bar raised spirits all the more.
The day was brought to an end with a Bollywood-themed sangeet with the decor and spotlights making the venue look straight out of a Bollywood movie. The night ended with much pomp and laughter for the couple and the guests.
Day 3 For the bridal party, the guests kick-started with the haldi ceremony held against the backdrop of a gorgeous floral setup. The haldi was combined with the choora ceremony, making the hues of yellow and red come alive with the theme. Shaped like a gigantic floral halo, the backdrop of the premise using flowers in shades of yellow and red made for an aesthetic set-up to click pictures with the family.
The wedding was a grand affair to witness. The captivating setup under glorious sunshine made the ceremony all the more beautiful. The mandap was a cluster of pastel flowers designed like a canopy with an open roof and flower clusters running down the aisle. The baraat danced their hearts out with guests young and old enjoying their hearts’ content. This was followed by the families leading the bride and the groom to the arch where the mooh dikhaai ceremony unveiled the face of the bride in her bridal grab to the groom for the first time. The couple was then led through the aisle toward the floral mandap.
The reception following the wedding was a glitzy affair. Comfortable yet elegant couches were ensconced in lights, set up like a canopy. The stage was alight with a whimsical glow and the aisle had glittering tassels hanging like strings of diamonds. A lovely band played music to soothe the senses of the couple and their guests, leading the night to a stunning finish.
As the events ended, the wedding party and guests were left with wide smiles and warm hearts, holding the countless memories close.
