"Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile."
The owner and creative head of luxurious handmade clothing - Parul Gandhi label, bride Parul Gandhi got hitched with her long time love Parth Madaan who has been a state-level cricketer and now a menswear brand owner too of Contrast by Parth. From self-designed outfits to pin-worthy decor, there wasn't anything in Parul & Parth's wedding unworthy of swooning over. A wedding with everything elegant, vibrant and dazzling, this is a wedding worth bookmarking for its ever-stylish designer bride and groom and the decor elements! Scroll down to check out all the details from this gorgeous wedding affair that literally took our breaths away!
Introducing Parth & Parul's Vibrant Wedding in Delhi
"Parth and I have known each other since childhood due to our common neighbourhood," the bride said as she recounted her romance with the groom, "I was a design student while he was into professional sports training, which made us quite busy to even notice each other. But that all change in 2013." When Parul and Parth bumped into each other in 2013, the last thing they expected was to strike a friendship during their regular swimming sessions, "Soon, we exchanged BBM pins and began coordinating our swimming sessions, which was where we'd spend a lot of time talking to each other."
Soon, their friendship blossomed into a romance neither of the two had imagined, "Parth is five years younger to me, so the thought of marriage was never on the table. So, for the next two years, we dated casually unaware of just how in love we were in!" The journey for Parth Madaan and Parul Gandhi to normalise this age gap between them was almost 7 years long. However, their chemistry and compatibility triumphed and the two couldn't imagine not being married to each other. So, after a long relationship, they finally took the next step of becoming life partners, which still felt like something that only happened to people in movies.
But here they are, an intimate and stunning wedding of #livingadream after happily married to each other!
Intimate Roka Ceremony
Due to the pandemic, the couple held their Roka with 35 people in attendance in a rather low-key setting in order to be safe. Parul wore gorgeous rust coloured, embroidered chiffon Anarkali which she designed herself, and paired her outfit with a similar coloured mask. Parth, contrastingly, wore a navy blue chikankari kurta with sequin work from his own clothing menswear ethnic line - Contrast by Parth. The couple avoided involving a lot of vendors for the Roka, including a photographer and DJ. Their friends and they themselves decided to fill into those roles, with the couple playing DJ while the bride's friend took the photos.

Glam Engagement Night
The wedding festivities began with the couple's engagement ceremony. A night full of chic and bedazzled elements, it saw both the bride and groom dressed in their finest outfits. Parul wore a gorgeous aubergine coloured gown adorned with iridescent crystals and three-dimensional sequins which she completed with sleek and straight open hair and a deep smokey eye makeup look. Similarly, Parth slayed in a crisp black tuxedo with a statement collar that was embellished with glittery nalki work.
Peppy Mehendi Function
While the mehendi function had everything, from the Genda Phool laden jhoola to the stunning blue drapes and cool seating arrangements, our eyes were fixed on the gorgeous bride and her self designed ensemble. Parul wore a peachy-pink pure raw silk lehenga adorned with acrylic beadwork, reflective mirrors and zardozi knotting done in fine Resham. She completed her look with gorgeous floral kadas and a wavy open hairdo. Parth, on the other hand, dressed up in a sky blue Chikankari and mirror embellished open jacket and kurta by his own label.
Intimate Delhi Wedding
The wedding was adorned in muted and chic tones that truly made it look like an elegant affair. Parul wore a self-designed beige lehenga embellished from top to bottom in gorgeous embroidery and sequin works along with two dupattas and a belt. She paired this with gorgeous polki jewellery and a pink chooda. Parth, similarly, chose a pastel ensemble with muted pink raw silk sherwani which was handcrafted in ivory Resham and some gold hues. He finished his look with a silk shawl cum stole design and chanderi safa.

From The Bride
Founder of Parul Gandhi Label, bride Parul Gandhi said, "We have a huge family and preparing a guest list was very problematic! Finding a venue was also tough during the Coronavirus outbreak in India. The venue, Freedom Roost, Delhi is actually a lounge and has a very dark decor setup. I wanted to give a personal touch to the whole place, so we covered some walls with white fabric as that looked great in contrast to our outfits. Did a lot of fairy light and peach carnations. The food was prepared by Sandoz with all safety measures. In fact, wearing masks were mandatory and fun to the outfit unless someone was eating. There was a sanitisation and temperature check team at the entrance also. We did seating arrangements in a way that everyone was at least 5 feet at distance and no one above 65 was invited. We had started the function a little early like 7 pm so we could have 2 slots of people coming in. 7 to 9 and 9 to 11. I feel you can't keep postponing your wedding because this situation is very uncertain. Just find a way and get married. Intimate weddings are the best."
