AN EX­PE­RI­ENCE FOR A LIFE­TIME

We take in the client's taste and pref­er­ence and then recre­ate the en­tire ex­pe­ri­ence, which is just a fig­ment of their imag­i­na­tion.

CUS­TOMI­SA­TION BE­COMES MAIN­STREAM

We once placed cus­tomised gifts for ev­ery guest for a wed­ding on the con­veyor belt at the air­port. The sur­prise on their faces to see their name on a ham­per, was in­con­ceiv­able.

SWAY­ING TO SANGEET

Huge tech­ni­cal set­ups, de­signer screens, bois­ter­ous sound, ce­les­tial light­ings, ev­ery­thing is in vogue. Un­con­ven­tional chore­og­ra­phy, heavy us­age of back­ground dancers are em­ployed to make the fam­ily feel no less than a star. Up­ward trend is seen in en­list­ing celebrity an­chors, artists and per­form­ers.

VARMALA CON­CEPTS

Use of heavy set pieces for the bride/groom en­try is a rage. For in­stance, the re­cent movie Pad­ma­vat, brought the craze for sim­i­lar sets for a varmala cer­e­mony.

SHOW ME THE MONEY

Hot des­ti­na­tions in In­dia like Goa or Ra­jasthan starts from `35, 000/pax, and for abroad des­ti­na­tions like Bangkok or Sri Lanka starts at around `40,000/pax. But newer off­beat des­ti­na­tions, cour­tesy celebrity wed­dings, have also propped up, like Ker­ala in In­dia, and even An­talya in Turkey.

CHAL­LENGES UN­DER­GONE

Pay­ments are a cul­tural is­sue in In­dia, the only hic­cup here is ex­plain­ing the role of ad­vances taken, oth­er­wise its all fine. In­fact, since the in­volve­ment of the younger lot has gone up for wed­ding preps, this is­sue is an out­ward trend!

SMALLER LUX­URY HO­TELS OR BIG­GER DES­TI­NA­TION RE­SORTS

Its all a per­sonal choice and at times about the bud­get of the client, what the ho­tel lacks in its of­fer­ing, we pro­vide it un­der our ex­per­tise.

MEM­O­RIES IN A FRAME

Wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy has seen a me­te­oric rise. In­dia has truly be­come dig­i­tal in this as­pect. Skill­ful cin­e­matog­ra­phers are used to cap­ture the pre-wed­ding and wed­ding cel­e­bra­tions. Teasers, clips and sto­ries are the or­der of the day for cher­ished mem­o­ries.

A WED­DING TO RE­MEM­BER

The TSR-GVK wed­ding in Hy­der­abad was an oth­er­worldly af­fair. The kind of de­tail­ing, prepa­ra­tions and chal­lenges that were in­volved could make for an en­try in 'How to do a Big Fat In­dian Wed­ding' books. Imag­ine GVK scion get­ting mar­ried on GMR grounds. Un­par­al­leled!

Off­beat des­ti­na­tions, cour­tesy celebrity wed­dings, have also propped up, like Ker­ala and even An­talya in Turkey”
