By  | 

Hello Lovelies! Prerana and Abhinav’s wedding is sure to make you head over to Manali resort in Pune. The couple hails from different family backgrounds so they wanted to include best of both cultures in a cost effective manner. The result: a beautiful fusion wedding documented by top Mumbai based photojournalist Ankur Dandekar.

Bride and Groom

Prerana Singh and Abhinav Thorve.

Wedding Date

2nd May, 2018

Why we chose the venue

We wanted a water-park so guests could beat the summer heat. Manali Resort offered a convenient location.


We chose minimalist decoration with simple seasonal flowers and colorful, vibrant drapes. The result was fantastic!

Bridal dresses and accessories

Says Prerana: “I opted to go local with my outfits when it came to dressing for mehendi, sangeet and the pheras. I purchased most of the lehengas from Chandni Chowk, Delhi at a very reasonable price. Unlike many brides, I wanted to wear something peppy and bright for my reception and hence I chose to wear a pink hand embroidered Chamee & Palak lehenga. Accessories, I rented from a local vendor in Pune at a very reasonable price”.


We opted for Ankur Dandekar, a Mumbai based photographer who has quite a reputation. He was great with his work and captured great candid shots.
Team weddingsonline wishes the couple a happy married life ahead!
