When one says, ‘the wedding was out of this world!’, you’d expect it to be grand but would you expect the bride emerging out a spaceship?! Oh yeah ! Definitely an experience that leaves you starstruck !
Set in the famous farm-house venues of Delhi, this wedding was truly larger than life. The bride Twinkle , arrived early on, adorned in her designer dress and looking resplendent in her wedding attire. Soon-to-be-husband Vishal was patiently waiting to make his ‘entry’ into the wedding venue with his colorful baaratis. There was a little bit of tension in the air when the rain Gods decided to bless the occasion as well. A cloudburst drenched the massive pandaal, quite literally raining on their parade. Nothing could dampen their spirits however, as everything was quickly brought under control and the festivities resumed to normal.
Twinkle arrived on the stage set for the ‘Jaimala’ in a space ship while Vishal advanced to help her onto the stage. The couple bowed to everyone and asked for their blessings before garlanding one another. There on, they moved to their mammoth reception stage where the guests could come and meet and greet the couple. Somewhere around midnight, we were ushered into a separate dinning tent where an exotic feast lay ready and what seemed like a never-ending culinary treat was laid out one course after another.
Post dinner, the bridesmaids and the groom’s sister helped the bride to another pandal where the couple were to be wed in true traditional style. While most of the guests had left by then, only the close family and friends stuck around for these important rituals. Once Vishal had put the sacred vermillion on the bride’s head and the sacred thread or ‘mangalsutra’, they were finally pronounced husband and wife! You could see the joy and cheer in everyones’ faces despite of the cold and late night.
In the wee hours of the morning, Twinkle was led to her new house by her new family. In a touching moment, Twinkle and her father both burst into tears as he bid adieu to his beautiful daughter whom he loved so much. The newly weds were finally sent off to start their life together as husband and wife.
Meraki wishes this gorgeous couple a happily ever after!
