An arranged marriage, which this couple likes to call a not-so-arranged marriage! Manish and Akshita met at a café when Akshita was in Hyderabad for coffee. But just when Akshita thought she wouldn’t hear back from Manish, God had other plans. They call themselves yin & yang personalities, but we all know those are the ones that balance each other perfectly. Their wedding was the right definition of a big fat Indian wedding and here’s everything we love about their wedding!
Akshita hit Sula-Alibaug-Mumbai with her besties for her bachelorette. And quite evidently, she had the time of her life. And they made the most beautiful memories while at it. A bachelorette is something that defines you, so when you plan one, make sure you’re adding in everything that you love!
The first step to their eventful wedding! The bride wore her mother’s wedding saree, that one ensemble from her mother’s wardrobe that was so special to both of them and topped it with her grandmother’s jewellery. Can it get any better? It was an intimate event at home and they stuck to gold & silver palette for décor.
This marks the beginning of wedding ceremonies where rice (biyyam) is offered to Lord Vigneshwara and turmeric is freshly ground.
The bride wanted a floral soiree, and that’s what she got! Every element from the engagement was easy, breezy and beautifully went along with the floral soiree theme. The engagement rings were synonymous to the bride and grooms personalities, an artistic ring studded with pink sapphires for the bride and a solid band for Manish. Akshita’s stunning gown was from Ajita, Kolkata and she ruled in that Swarovski Jewellery. The makeup and hair was done by Makeup Artist Priyanka Singh and Anjali Krishna from Anju Makeup Artistry set her soft curls. Manish wore a dapper blue suit from Raymonds and they got hitched at the beautiful Boulder Hills Golf & Country Club, Hyderabad. Glass Onion, Hyderabad took care of the food and Rak Lead Events organized this beautiful soiree. The guests departed with customized chocolates and candles from Raaga Chocolates,this souvenir was definitely remembered. The moments from their engagement were captured by Pradeep Photography
This Mehendi was a walk down Rajasthan! Everything from the mehendi went along with the theme. It indeed was a colourful afternoon with appetizing Rajasthani delicacies. Akshita wore a gorgeous gotapati lehenga sourced from Rajasthan itself. Can it get any better?
The stage was set for an evening of lataks and jhataks. This event got everyone grooving and they all made memories worth a lifetime. Akshita wore a long chikankari gown she got from Lucknow. The idea was to theme all the events based on a state and reminisce its beauty, isn’t that a surreal way to celebrate?
Kerela was her chosen state for her haldi. A beautiful mangalgiri ikkat and bhagalpuri cotton silk saree from Mugdha Art Studio made its way to her traditional haldi. They backdrop with banana leaves added such vibrancy and this event ended with a sadhya.
This is the ceremony where the bride’s family welcomes the groom and his family with pannakam and a plethora of sweets. Akshita wore a gorgeous uppada silk saree with a kalamkari blouse.
THE GRAND BRIDAL RECEPTION
The theme for their reception was an enchanted forest with peacock hues. They had gone all in with the décor. From virtual carpets that had leaves which moved when people walked over it to creeper backdrops and trees, they had it all covered. Akshita wore an ethereal lehenga from Virachi, Kolkata and suta details left everyone mesmerized.
The wedding was a traditional affair. The Rama Kalyanam theme was extended to the décor. The first outfit was a Kanjeevaram silk saree from Varamahalakshmi Silks paired with the most detailed Tanjore embroidery blouse. She completed the look with her first love, temple jewellery and for the second bridal change she wore a banarasi silk saree from Mugdha Art Studio.
THE GRAND GROOM’S SIDE RECEPTION
For this the theme was reminiscent of the Mughal era. Akshita wore a kasab embroidered lehenga that screamed royal! It was regal evening, with sufi playing on the background and kebabs being served, one just couldn’t ask for more.
It was an intimate ceremony with just close family in attendance. Akshita wore an elegant dharamavaram silk saree which was accentuated with the finesse of the maggam blouse with the south Indian gopuram details. She completed the look with minimal makeup and a bun with mogra flowers. The nath definitely added a beautiful touch.
16TH DAY FUNCTION
Akshita wore a vibrant paithani silk saree and the couple was given a warm welcome. The function also included Srinivasa Kalyanam, and the whole family looked pretty in hues of pink. And that concludes this amazing big fat Telugu wedding that left us awestruck by the captures of Chocolate Box photography. It was definitely a fairytale come true.
