A family affair in many ways, the wedding d dinner included performances and speeches b by loved ones. The couple also hosted the e event themselves, adding to the intimate feel. ““We ended up having a ball—and our guests r really enjoyed it because everything was so u unexpected,” says Sonam.
Particularly memorable for Sonam were h her brother Ravi’s heartwarming speech a and Vishal’s singing performance. The g groom meanwhile counts his wife’s dance p performance for him a high point. The celebration wrapped up with a bang at Shangri-La Hotel, where guests tucked into Singaporean street fare while Bollywood music duo Vishal & Shekhar caused quite a stir with their sensational songs that had revellers pounding the dance floor until 4am.
Although Sonam admits that outfits were low on her to-do list—“We only really started to think about outfits a month or two prior to the wedding”—the couple could have fooled anyone with their opulent wardrobe, accessorised with statement bling from Temptations Jewellery and Infiniti Jewels. Created by top names in Indian and international design, Sonam’s outfits mirrored the colour themes for the various events and included a jaw-droppingly gorgeous lehenga in gold. Created by her designer friend Anjali Mahtani, it had the couple’s love story narrated in embroidered pictures. “I also had lines from my husband’s first love letter to me embroidered onto my scarf,” she says.
Certainly that’s one love story forever stitched in time.
