Trisha and Rahul’s love story is what fairytales are made of. A story about a boy who had a crush on a girl since they were in school to them barely missing each other's company, it's almost like watching the events of a Blockbuster movie unfold. Like a beautifully penned fiction, their wedding story is not a cliche but just the right kind of romance for those who love a series of serendipitous events to come together to create such a relationship.
Scroll down to check out their gorgeous wedding celebration where you'll not only witness an opulent couple in designer outfits but also the love in their eyes that's so palpable that you can see it even in their wedding photos!
Introducing Trisha & Rahul
The couple's grand five-day wedding in the beautiful city of Bangkok was an affair full of stunning decor and downright gorgeous designer outfits. The couple's unique wedding functions, their intense chemistry and the presence of their friends and family made this four-day extravaganza into a full-blown carnival that took place at the Anantara Riverside Resort.
Haldi & Wedding Ceremonies
Trisha and Rahul kickstarted their wedding with a mini haldi ceremony and a beautifully intimate wedding in the presence of their closest family and friends. Looking like an absolute dream, Trisha Datwani walked down the aisle in a stunning silver Manish Malhotra saree paired with a gorgeous diamond and red garnet jewellery while Rahul Anand looked dapper in a crimson sherwani and matching safa by Deepak Parwani. You could see the love shining in Rahul’s eyes as Trisha walked towards him hand-in-hand with her father. And everyone shed a tear or two, as Trisha teared up during the jaimala ceremony.

Cocktail Dinner Party
The wedding day was followed by a fabulous cocktail dinner on the rooftop of Avani+ resort, the next day. For the cocktail dinner, Trisha wore a beautiful pink jumpsuit with pastel blue 3D embroidery by Papa Don't Preach while Rahul wore a dapper blue suit.
The lunch that followed the cocktail from the night before was themed “50 Shades of Blue”. Whimsical is the event from the night before, the cocktail was a sight in shades of blue, with vibrant blue decor adorning the venue. Trisha, as usual, was beautiful, in a gown from her own label along with a striking blue choker necklace. Rahul, on the other hand, dressed up in a cerulean blue Hugo Boss suit. The lunch took a fun turn when it started raining and the elders of the family decided to head to dance in the rain!
The sangeet that took place in the evening was a grandiose affair. Gorgeous as ever, Trisha wore a muted mauve lehenga Falguni Shane Peacock while Rahul decked up in a velvety black sherwani by Rohit Bal. The stunning couple entered the venue in a vintage car ended the night dancing to the tunes of the famous singer Hardy Sandhu. And they certainly knew how to let their hair down at the after-party!

'Sand Vows' Ceremony
Possibly one of the most unique things we've ever witnessed at a wedding was this couple's 'Sand Vows'. Trisha and Rahul had a separate varmala and 'sand vows' ceremony the next day. The vows exchanged between the couple were promises that they made to each other, which showed us just how different and distinct this couple's relationship is!
Grand Reception Party
Finally, the last function to mark this extravagant Bangkok wedding was the reception. Heartfelt and emotional, this one had everyone making toasts for the couple's happy future. From cutting a giant wedding cake to speeches in their honour, the celebration came to an end with everyone finally hitting the dance floor with everyone in the most 'Bollywood' way ever!
Wedding Vendor Reviews
Twogether Studios: They were amazing! They were great to work with. Every member of their crew was willing to go above and beyond their job. They were everywhere at every function and were able to capture the essence of the entire wedding and the emotions of every family member beautifully.
Innaz Communique: Innayat and his team were the best. They were extremely well organised and the family could enjoy the wedding because of them. We were stress-free. And all the guests were very well taken care of.
Manish Malhotra: I thought it would be very different for a bride to wear the sari on the day of the wedding because everyone wears ‘red’ lehengas now. Also, I chose a colour that I love, which is powder blue -although it looks white. That’s who I am, I’m unconventional and very modern. I wanted to wear a traditional-looking outfit at the beginning but once I tried them on I didn’t feel like myself. So I chose a very modern sari with diamond sets instead of uncut (polki!)
Trish by Trisha Datwani: I am a designer myself, I make western formal wear. So it was a good opportunity for me to showcase my design. I am extremely OCD also so I need my clothes to look exactly as I imagine. Therefore all my outfits were customised. For this look, I wanted to wear a white gown, which was always my dream,- to wear a white gown at my wedding but Indian tradition doesn’t allow a bride to wear too much white so I made a gown that gave an illusion of being white.
Falguni Shane Peacock: This was the first outfit I bought. The colour, the cut, the embroidery it was all perfect at first glance. I just wanted to do something slightly different so Falguni added some fun frill to my sleeve. Also, my family is obsessed with elephants so she added some elephant embroidery to the border of my lehenga.
Gaurav Gupta: I searched for months and months for this outfit and I was just not liking anything anywhere. My parents and I went to Delhi finally for the Vogue show because I had to order my outfit anyhow by then. After all, otherwise, it wouldn’t be ready in time for the wedding. I always wanted to wear at least one Sabyasachi at my wedding. I have looked up to him for many many years now. But somehow when I wore the outfits I just felt like every other bride on Instagram. And then I saw a gown at Gaurav Gupta, I didn’t need any more gowns by then, I had already started making my own and they were almost ready. He still insisted I tried it on, and my God! It was love at first sight. No other outfit had made me feel like this. I felt like a bride. An extremely unconventional bride. I had to have the outfit and I had to wear it for the Varmala. So Gaurav customised it, added a little embroidery, cut the gown into a blouse and lehenga and changed the colour from red to hot pink. It is a stunning outfit. I love it. In fact, I changed the function a little bit to match my outfit so I made it from just a Varmala ceremony to a sand ceremony where we also said our vows.
It was a beautiful shade of red that he wore. So different that the groom wore red. We balanced each other out. It was a self on self embroidered sherwani.
We bought a black on black self embroidered sherwani. Very royal looking with elephants embroidered on them since we all love elephants
She does the most beautiful custom mehendi. She actually was able to make a portrait of me and my husband on my hand, she also made a portrait of our dog that we have raised together. She was the sweetest, most patient person. Inca t the calls herself barbie because she looks like a barbie doll.
