The bride wore a bespoke lace gown from RicoA-Mona Bridal’s Garden Collection as she walked down the red carpet on the arm of her beaming father. The sweeping soft-laced mermaid gown was intricately tailored with floral details. She had three other outfits, all graceful, and each evoking a different feel. While canary yellow isn’t a colour normally chosen by brides, she carried it off with unmistakable poise at the solemnisation ceremony where she wore a sari from India in the rich colour.
Her wedding bling were a combination of pieces from Larry Jewelry and CW Jewels. As a special gift, Ganesh personally designed her ring and emerald earrings which were then handcrafted by a private jeweller. “I can still remember running to the jewellery shop in between seeing patients and performing operations,” he recalls. “Seeing her smile on the big day made every little effort worth it.”
Careful attention was paid to outfits for the seven bridesmaids, too. From girly in flowy pink gowns at the daytime ceremony, they morphed into sultry sirens in satin gold dresses that accentuated the elegant decor of the St Regis ballroom during the dinner reception.
The G & L theme was also conveyed through the couple’s choice of favours, which were handmade by the disabled. It was their way of doing good through their wedding. “We wanted to give back to society by collaborating with less privileged individuals and tapping on their potential in simple acts of love,” says Lisa.
