With an off-beat concept, a whimsical touch of tradition, and a twisted affair of modernity this couple’s wedding ceremony left everyone awestruck. Hosted across plush venues in Mumbai, Shreya and Vaibhav’s nuptials were nothing short of a feast for the eyes with its unique concepts, dazzling color palettes, and breathtaking decor. Their wedding will give you tons of ideas to bookmark, so keep scrolling.

From a traditional ‘tel baan’ (oil) ceremony to a glamorous sangeet night, each function was flawlessly conceptualized by Bon Evento. To make this event nothing less than a dream come true, they made sure that every element at the venue gave an exceptionally refreshing aroma to the guests. Breathing life into the concepts with their exceptional decor skills and making sure the couple had a treasure trove of beautiful memories to take home was the amazing team- Vivah. A big shoutout to Reels and Frames who captured every moment so beautifully. From the bright sunkissed smile of the bride to the moonlit bright eyes of the groom, every picture depicts those emotions so graciously.

Nishi Singhal Bajaj, the co-founder of Bon Evento, shared an overview of the wedding planning process, “Initially we brainstormed quite a few ideas and bounced them around with the couple’s family. Our main aim was to make sure that the duo and their family’s personalities broke through to the surface with each concept. We were mainly in touch with Vaibhav and his family who carefully went through our ideas and made sure they included everything that Shreya had envisioned for her wedding. Since both, the families had very niche and unique tastes, we suggested the lotus theme for the big day which exuded tradition in a contemporary way. To make sure everything was in complete sync with the duo’s tastes and our concepts, we also gave special attention to the wedding invitations and favors by ensuring they got standout designs that would impress their guests.”

“Both Shreya and Vaibhav wanted a colorful theme for the Mehendi function. Thinking along those lines, we came up with a ‘Phoolon ki Holi’ theme. A bright pink and orange color palette with a tinge of yellow was selected for the occasion”, she added. The vibrant hues of the drapes, the refreshing flower petals, the funky train vases, and the fierce floral swing bestowed a playful vibe in the ceremony.

Sharing their thought process behind conceptualizing the glamorous sangeet, Nishi from team Bon Evento shares, “After toying with many ideas, Shreya and Vaibhav zeroed down on the ‘Wine and Gold’ theme for the sangeet. To amplify the glamour stakes, we included a magnificent island bar tended by team Drinq which was a priority for the duo.

For the tel-baan and bhaat, the couple went simple on the decor and chose to stay true to tradition. Nishi added, “Keeping the brief in mind, we went very traditional with the concept and decor. Replete with marigolds, the backdrop for the ceremony boasted of a Ganpati crafted out of the beautiful yellow blooms that struck a delightful contrast against the lush foliage.” 

“For the wedding and reception, we gave the couple a beautiful lotus theme where the decor was filled to the brim with delicate lotuses. From the table centerpieces to the pathways at St.Regis, every part of the venue echoed the theme. The show-stealer was Ganga Aarti was performed by priests who were specially flown in from Varanasi for the occasion after”, she further added.

The Bride looked like an enchantress in her pastel lehenga and natural, subtle make-up. From her shimmering choker to her dazzling smile, she looked like a vision. The groom sported a dusty pink sherwani. Their colour coordinated outfit and unmatched chemistry added an extravagance of love to the ambiance.
