Just like people have ‘hunger pangs’ on an empty stomach, we at Shaadisaga have ‘wedding pangs’ until we are fed with something as satisfying as this ravishing wedding of the mushy couple who celebrated their union at the plush property of Taj Damdama, Gurgaon with enough glitz and glam.
Exquisitely planned by Designer Events Inc., Ridhi and Ankit’s wedding was packed with drool-worthy elements. Whether it was their poolside Mehendi that was festooned with fresh and colourful flowers, the fun Haldi that witnessed everyone sharing hearty laughs or the lavish wedding that had the most picture perfect couple, we are in love with almost everything about this dreamy wedding.
One look at these extraordinarily pretty pictures captured by the ace photographer Atul Pratap Chauhan and you’ll feel you’re already living in a fantasy world.
Ridhi & Ankit’s wedding revelries kicked off with an intimate and homely Mehendi that witnessed an oh-so-gorgeous bride dressed in an elegant dual-toned banarasi lehenga with an off-shoulder blouse, minimal jewellery and hair done in a bun.
This was followed by a grand Mehendi bash by the poolside which was a perfect blend of vibrant colours and festive vibes. Peachy drapes, pink and white cushion chairs and blooming flowers were the key decor elements. However, the major highlight of this event’s decor was the couple’s alluring seating lounge which was adorned with a breathtakingly beautiful floral wreath set up by the Elements Decor team.
For this bash, Ridhi slipped into an elegant light-beige, flower embroidered saree and a turquoise blue blouse from Anita Dongre. While Ankit chose to complement her ladylove in a printed Herringbone and Sui vest over a plain white shirt and cream pants.
Walking hands in hands, Ridhi and Ankit made a dazzling entry into their Sangeet ceremony. While Ridhi looked resplendent in a statement Anita Dongre gota patti bridal lehenga teamed with open tresses and dewy makeup. Ankit, on the other hand, looked all sophisticated in a classic navy blue bandhgala and light-beige pants.
Staying true to the vibes of a sangeet ceremony, Ridhi and Ankit’s family members performed on some jazzy Bollywood numbers for the couple, which later got everyone into the fun mood and saw them burning the dance floor with their candid moves.
For the Haldi, the poolside of the venue was beautifully decked up with hues of yellow. Beautiful tuberose backdrop, yellow drapes, mini-sized floral chandeliers and the pink sofa sitting were the key decor elements. While the decor of the function was truly mesmerising, but one thing that kept us scrolling through the pictures were the ever-shining faces and never-fading smiles.And not to forget our personal favourite- the joyous flower shower.
Coming to the couple’s scintillating Haldi outfits, Ridhi opted for a basic chanderi silk saree and a red chanderi blouse from Raw Mango. She rounded off her look with a neat mogra bun hairstyle, dainty crystalised jhumkas and a stylish chandbali maang tikka. Whereas, Ankit kept it all simple in a white kurta-pyjama.
The breathtaking outdoor setup for Ridhi and Ankit’s nuptials was way more exquisite than words can describe. Be it the elegant tablescapes filled with red roses, the huge peacock installation or the cascading mogra adornments covering the entire mandap, every decor detail of this wedding is worth obsessing over.
On the big day, Ridhi bedazzled in a ruby pink Sabyasachi bridal lehenga which she had perfectly paired with an emerald choker & layered polki rani haar. Ankit too made a dapper groom in an evergreen ivory sherwani from Rohit Bal which he teamed with a matching safa and shawl.
