PRACHI X CHIRAG
Taj Krishna & Taj Falaknuma, Hyderabad
Planner & Designer
A wedding wherein we the entire wedding planning at the Taj Falaknuma and Taj Krishna, Hyderabad. A new city with some awesome destinations and backdrops to work with. The beautiful locations of Taj Falaknuma and the Taj Krishna formed the perfect backdrop to this wedding. Spread over 2 days between the 2 venues, this was one of the few challenging yet an absolute fun wedding that we pulled off in a months time. Each and every look had to be different and be treated in accordance with the venue – especially Taj Falaknuma. When you have an already existing beautiful location, how does one add more to it and yet maintain the grandeur of the venue is what really kept us going for the wedding. So the welcome dinner had a complete Moorish theme wherein we treated the loungers with Moroccan Lattice cutout panels. Huge moorish architecture arches formed the walkway to the venue. A lot of architecture, patterns and lattice cutwork from Morocco formed our basis for the design.
For the mehendi it was more of the reflection of the fun side of the bride Prachi who also wanted to show a glimpse of Delhi. Colourful tassel strings from the the ceiling and from Champa trees set the evening. While the bridal seating and the photo both was filled with florals, the tables and the games had some fun typical Delhi words written all over it.
For the sangeet it was complete play of lights – the palace was lit up in purples and blues. With a bar which had a huge light chandelier over it to the sangeet stage naked bulb lighting highlighted the evening. Big Floral Urns and centrepieces done in whites and lavenders set a classy yet glamorous look for the evening. Some amazing family performances and Abhijit Sawant set the stage on fire.
The next day was a small haldi ceremony complete with yellow and white marigolds giving it a subtle traditional look
The pheras and the reception were held at the Falaknuma – Deep reds and dark pinks were the colours for the Mandap and the Pheras set against the backdrop of the palace. And in a complete contrast to the pheras was an all white and gold reception.
