SHRADDHA AND SANKET’S MEHENDI AND HALDI
Hi MWP brides! Want to see some bright and cheerful mehendi and haldi photos that are sure to take your monday blues away??? We have a wonderful real wedding feature to inspire you with today! In a two part series we showcase the pre-wedding ceremonies and wedding of Shraddha and Sanket. Let’s take a trip to wedding wonderland as Shraddha and Sanket get married at a beautiful outdoor resort called Aaloha Hills at Ahmedabad. This unforgettable wedding celebration encompassed 4 functions spread over 2 days. What I loved the most about their intimate wedding was that they infused a personal touch to all their celebrations and their pictures look too good to be true! Our beautiful bride Shraddha is a professional wedding photographer, so it’s no surprise that she managed to get the best wedding photos possible! All thanks to her wonderful team at Dreamgrapher!
While the Sangeet was held at the bride’s parents house in Ahmedabad, all the other functions were held at a beautiful and quaint resort called Aaloa Hills in Ahmedabad. Shraddha says,” It is said one finds love in the most unexpected places and it certainly proved true in our case. Our made-in-heaven match can be attributed to an online matrimonial site. We both happened to be on that site just for the ‘heck of it’ but were surprised at the ‘connection’ we felt as we checked each other’s profiles. Before we knew it, we were talking for hours on phone and texting each other through the day. Because of our hectic work schedules (and the fact that we lived in different cities) it was a little difficult for us to zero in on a date to actually meet up. But finally, we fixed on a date at a Nature Resort called Aaloa Hills. Luckily, we ‘clicked’ the minute we set eyes on each other. Over the next few months, we traveled often to catch up and soon Sanket told his family about me, even before proposing to me, I think he knew my answer anyway!”
When it came time to decide on their wedding venue, Shraddha and Sanket thought of getting married at the same place they met for the very first time, Aaloa resort it was! They invited guests to stay with them for 2 days and allocated private cottages for all the guests. The couple wanted an intimate wedding with close family and friends in attendance. Just browsing through the photos one can see how Shraddha and Sanket have thought out every aspect of their wedding. Right from the ‘ I am the bride‘’ tag at the entrance of the bride’s room to the silver coins engraved with the couples name to the cute props like hanging kathputlis used in the mehendi decor. Bespoke and creative!
Shraddha says, “We never wanted a grand made-up wedding with too much bling, too much noise and crazy artificial lighting! Since it was an evening wedding we wanted fairylights and candles to illuminate the venue. For the mehendi and haldi, we wanted traditional indian decor like with a lot of marigold flowers to add a pop of colour and warmth to the decor. It also gives the festivities a homely feel. Our friends helped us put together some paper pom poms and banners to give the decor a personal touch. “
Browse through all the wonderful photos…we hope you enjoy these pretty images shot perfectly by Dreamgrapher as much as we did!
Be back for their mesmerizing outdoor picnic wedding in our next feature!
Love the mehendi decor right from the rajasthani colorful danglers to the pompom balls and marigold decor.
