When wedding connoisseurs decide to get married, their entire wedding glory speaks for itself. There is a burst of colours, high-end designer outfits, grand decorations, heart-warming performances and so much more in their kitty to treat one’s eyes. Such was our darling decorator bride, Tanvi Puri’s (Founder of Tanvi & Co.) stunning Ludhiana wedding.
It was only last year when Tanvi got roka-fied with her longtime beau, Sidhant in a breathtaking, self-designed Roka setup & left us all awaiting the magic she’ll create on her wedding. Fast forward a year ahead, we’re here, penning down her blissful wedding shenanigans that were one splendid sight. From the cherry blossomed Mehndi, the typical Punjabi-style Dhol night to the royal wedding, it was all truly magical.
The ace crew of Tanvi & Co. literally wove each and every moment from their big day with sheer elan & love. However, it was the oh-so-lovely couple who added all the mystique to the celebrations with their sartorial choices.
Without further ado, jump into their extravagant wedding revelries, phenomenally captured through the lens of Hitched & Clicked.
Commencing the wedding celebrations at a rather spiritual note, Tanvi & Sidhant hosted their Viah hath ceremony, which was an intimate affair. It witnessed the ladies in the family sing joyful songs to bless the couple with a lifetime of happiness & prosperity. The decorations for the day were the ultimate mix of traditional and modern.
Elements like earthen pots, marigold garlands, terrariums and lit candles were all beautifully incorporated to amp up the look and feel of the house. The stage, where all the action took place, was highlighted with gobs of marigold & tuberose trellis etched to the ceiling and some flower buckets & marigold garlands prettifying the backdrop. All in all, the decor lent a very cosy and warm feel to their wedding shenanigans.
As much as we loved the decorations, we adored the fact that Tanvi slipped into her dearest mommy’s bridal lehenga for the ceremony. She looked a million bucks in her intricately embroidered red lehenga skirt which she smartly paired with a stylish fawn-coloured wrap-up blouse. Keeping her look all raw & simple, she did her hair into soft curls and complemented it well with soft & dewy makeup. To finish off her look, she clad her neck with a statement choker necklace along with matching earrings and a few chunky bangles.
Followed by the Viah Hath ceremony was a joyous Sangeet ceremony which was again high on the glam quotient. The decorations for the Sangeet ceremony were kept the same as that of the mehndi. Whimsical sit-down arrangements, colourful tassels and a backdrop adorned with umbrellas were the key decor elements for this hep ceremony.
For the Sangeet, Tanvi clad herself in a mesmerising pastel green mirror-work lehenga with a glimmering choli & matching dupatta. She fashioned her Abhinav Mishra ensemble with a pop of blue beaded necklace and a pair of tasselled earrings. Soft pink lids, nude pink lips and open crown braided tresses accentuated her beauty by multi-folds. Sidhant whereas, picked a glamorous cowled kurta and ivory churidars to rock a svelte look on the Sangeet.
Tanvi & Sidhant’s mehndi was the actual Kickstarter to their fun & lively wedding shenanigans. It was all things pretty with hints of pink dominating the colour palette for the day. While the magical sakura-themed tunnel-like entrance (made from gobs of cherry blossoms) was evidently a major highlight from their Mehndi, there was a lot more than straightaway tucked at our hearts.
We loved how the sitting lounges were painted in a myriad of colors. While a bunch of vibrant tassels were used to adorn the ceilings, the colorful sit-down arrangements added some more vibrancy to the breathtaking aura of their Mehndi. Apart from that, there was a special stage put up in the hall with a lot of jaipuri umbrellas outlining the backdrop. In true sense it was a colorful affair!
Setting some major outfit goals right from the beginning, Tanvi and Sidhant dressed their fashionable best on their mehndi. Not one, not two but every element that constituted to their look was worth ogling over. Sidhant made for a classy groom in his side-tucked asymmetrical hem bandhgala and a pair of silver pants. He further teamed it up with a pair of round tinted glasses and tan loafers to complete his look. Tanvi, on the other hand, made for a dreamy muse in her sunshin-ing Anita Dongre ensemble.
The gorgeous lady picked a scintillating foil print lehenga skirt in yellow and paired it up with a strappy blouse detailed with a dash of turquoise and signature gota patti work. Ditching the usual route of going matchy-matchy, Tanvi opted for some elegant floral jewels in blue and completely stood out as a bride. She further donned a dramatic side braid, soft smokey eyes, pink lips and perfectly bronzed cheeks to finish off her look.
The Dhol night was one helluva party with a never-seen-before decor curated by none other than the ace crew of Tanvi & Co. It boasted of a magical gold infinity pathway which was not just an entrance but an experience worth relishing. There was also a spectacular wooden panelled extended walkway that lent a royal Punjabi vibe to the ceremony.
Further lighting up the surroundings were the larger-than-life chandeliers & fancy arrangements around the staircase. Well, we’re so hooked to the decor that we’ll recommend all the to-be couples to give this one a look and take some major inspiration out of it.
Making for a breathtaking couple in their dazzling designer outfits, Tanvi & Sidhant entered the venue in a typical punjabi style, by grooving to the beats of the dholwalas along with some dancers & artists. Tanvi looked every bit beautiful in her contemporary tulle lehenga embroidered in silk thread and agate sequins which she teamed with a strappy embellished choli and a classic Tarun Tahiliani drape cascading around her body.
Adding more charm to her look was a glimmering diamond & ruby necklace around her neck and a sleek maang tikka beautifully decking up her head. To highlight her bridal glory in the best way possible, ace makeup artist further tossed her hair into a messy bun and stroked her face with a dewy base, beaming highlighter, smokey eyes and nude pink lips. Maintaining the glam quotient for the night, Sidhant too dressed to impress. He wore an embroidered bandhgala with a cowled kurta and a pair of churidars from Shantanu & Nikhil.
Drenched in warm hues of reds with a touch of drama & unique elements, the decor for Tanvi & Sidhant’s engagement was a sight to behold. It witnessed a wooden flooring, rustic furniture, larger-than-life chandeliers, flowy drapes and loads of candles & flowers, all coming together to set up a library themed club. However, our favorite part from their antique engagement decor was the exquisite entry walkway that had live drummers as a key decor element.
The night was a lit affair with a line-up of choreographed performances by the bride, groom & their families. The couple had also got a lot of artists on board to entertain their guests and make it one memorable experience for all.
Clad in a bespoke Shantanu & Nikhil ensemble detailed with intricate embroideries and work, Sidhant looked all debonair as a groom. He paired it up with a pair of basic black pants and classic black loafers. Tanvi, on the other hand, chose to dazzle in an all gold avatar. She picked a breathtaking gold lehenga from Sabyasachi and gorgeously paired it up with a bunch of polki baubles, comprising of a layered polki haar, a mesmerising choker and a pair of matching earrings.
Steering clear of any fancy hairstyle, Tanvi simply did her hair into soft, blow-dried waves & curls and let her bold makeup speak volumes. Her makeup artist Amrit Kaur gave her bold red lips, perfectly smoked eyes and a clean & fresh face to complete the look.
The Haldi ceremony was all about effervescent vibes and cheery smiles. It witnessed everyone exchanging hearty laughs & random giggles while smearing the bride with turmeric paste. All the ladies in the house were dressed in hues of pink for the Haldi and so was Tanvi. She wore a ravishing halter blouse with a high-low organza skirt and a ruffled dupatta by Sameera Auluck for her Haldi proceedings. Keeping her look all minimal yet stunning, she opted for open tresses, nude lips and a red bindi to round off her look.
After the Haldi rituals, the lovely bride was also seen having a gala time frolicking around and rustling her kaleeras on her girlies, to soon get one of them married.
Tanvi & Sidhant’s wedding was indeed the showstopper from their fun-filled wedding shenanigans. It was brimming with upbeat decorations, glamorous looks, surreal vibes and what not! There were crystalized chandeliers & mogra trellis hanging down the ceiling, all over the venue and we loved the sort of aroma they created for their blissful union. Royal moroccan arches, flowy drapes, pillar candles and vintage vases were also thoughtfully infused into the decorations for the night. It was indeed one regal celebration.
Looking like a regal bride in her fully embellished, Sabyasachi lehenga, Tanvi made a stellar entry on her big day, under a shaandar phoolon ki chaadar. Being the new-age bride, Tanvi opted for a dusty pink, pastel hue for her bridal ensemble and accessorised it well, with just the right kind of baubles-a double layered polki haar outlined with emeralds, a neck-cinching choker with onyx droppings, understated nath & an elaborate maang tikka.
Finishing off her look with a splash of elegance, her Makeup artist Amrit Kaur gave her bold, smokey eyes, pink lips, a tad bit of glow and well-contoured cheeks. Sidhant whereas, made for a royal groom in white and arrived the venue in a swanky, vintage car. He opted to deck up in an all-white Sherwani from Tarun Tahiliani for the D-day and accessorised it well with a pink safa and a layered emerald haar.
