“Both the bride and the groom wanted their wedding to be impactful and out-of-the-box. All the guests in this wedding are well-travelled and have wide exposure, so we wanted this event to be a memorable for everyone,” said Sahiba Narang, the commercial director of Fete Events.

Each of the pre-wedding rituals such as the mehendi (henna night) and the sangeet (music) ceremony had themes.

“The mehendi yesterday afternoon had a Latin American theme and it wasn’t your typical mehendi ceremony. Instead of the golden brown mehendi we had white mehendi and there were Mexican accents everywhere,” said Narang.

The decor for the sangeet held in a canopy outside had another theme.

“The colour scheme was black and rose gold and we had created a starlit dance floor with glass. The best part was Arjun Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor played emcees to the family skit. It all worked out well and looked very elegant. We had huge chandelier­s and floral arrangemen­ts for the night,” said Narang.

Narang, who has been in the business of decor execution along with her partner Mallika Singh, claims that her latest high-profile wedding was high pressure but hugely gratifying. “We worked on four major bashes during the wedding and each one had a unique twist,” said Narang.
