Dia Mirza tied the knot with Vaibhav Rekhi in a private ceremony on 15 February 2021. Her simple and soulful wedding ceremony was held in her garden where Dia spent most of her mornings for the last 19 years. It was a close-knit ceremony with a limited guest list of 60 people. The micro wedding was highly personalised and curated, adhering to the privacy of the couple.
Being a connoisseur of eco-friendly living, Dia wanted the decor to be sustainable without any usage of plastic. Therefore Aashna Saran from Aash Studio incorporated in the decor was cut glass candle holders used on the dining table and even on the trees, brass plates, jute fabric, different types of candles, Diya jaalis to add glitter and lastly loads of flowers. With an extension of Dia’s personality, Aashna handpicked brands and vendors that were homegrown and supported the ‘Made in India’ initiative. The flowers selected for the decor were all Indian hyperlocal flowers like mogra, rajnigandha and shevanti ladis. The wedding ceremony witnessed decor highlights with a few hearts touching elements like the bells that were attached to the chairs for the guest to ring during Dia and Vaibhav's pheras. There were personalised notes placed on the chairs for the guest to remind them of the important role they played in Dia & Vaibhav’s life.
Overall this close-knit ceremony lit by the ashen skies with the surreal sustainable wedding decor was nothing short of a symphony for the soul. 🌸
Introducing Dia Mirza’s Sustainable Intimate Wedding Decor
1. Rustic Floral Decoration
Bride Dia Mirza and groom Vaibhav Rekhi wanted to get married in an eco-friendly way and therefore, decided to have fresh flowers from the garden to keep it sustainable. Wedding decorator Aash Studio paired many dry branches with baby's breath and blush pink roses, intertwined with Mogra strings for the mandap frame, which added the perfect traditional touch to the day intimate wedding celebration.
Keeping it simple with adding traditional touches to the decor, the duo also played with Rajnigandha strings against glass candles tucked into our brass arches that looked divine for #SunsetKeDiVaNe wedding bells.
Making us in LOVE with their rustic floral decoration we also came across beautiful candles and lights, and strings of flowers, which gave the wedding an old-world charm for this Indian garden for Dia Mirza's wedding day.

Dia Mirza's Intimate Garden Wedding That Was Completely Biodegradable & Natural
Dia is an epitome of simplicity and elegance, the wedding was designed to reflect her taste. The wedding attire she selected depicted her love for nature, she wore a beautiful Banarasi saree by Raw Mango and to compliment it she wore some beautiful mogra on her hair. Her bridal entry was planned just in line with her persona. Dia made her sophisticated entry with her nephew and niece holding the fun signage - "Here comes your Bride" and a little girl holding a basket full of flower petals. 🌼
Dia Mirza said, "The garden where I have spent every morning for the past 19 years was an absolutely magical setting and the most intimate and perfect space for our simple and soulful ceremony! We are so proud to have been able to organise a completely sustainable ceremony without plastics or any waste. The materials used for the minimal decor we went for were completely biodegradable and natural. The highest point for us was the Vedic ceremony conducted by a woman priest! I had never seen a woman performing a wedding ceremony until I attended my childhood friend Ananya’s wedding a few years ago. Ananya’s wedding gift to Vaibhav and me was to bring Sheela Atta, her aunt and a priestess, to perform the ceremony."
She further added, "She also painstakingly went through several hours of training to imbibe the essence of the scriptures so that she could assist Sheela Atta and translate the shlokas! It was such a privilege and a joy to be married this way! We do hope with all our heart that many more couples make this choice. For it is a woman's soul that contains love, wonder, benediction, magical energy, tenderness and deep empathy for all that lives. It is time for women to own their own agency, divinity, power, and redefine what is old and birth what is new. As Charles Bukowski said, "There is no lie in their fire." So what can be more uplifting and empowering than to see the sacred fire within a woman's heart and soul taking centre stage at a wedding? I am still overwhelmed by the magic of this one moment. Also, we said NO to ‘Kanyadaan’ and ‘Bidaai’ change begins with choice doesn’t it?"
