beautiful red and gold themed real wedding in Varanasi


We met…I belong to a Rajput Family where we have always followed the tradition of arranged marriage. So, while my friends were busy finding the love of their lives and settling with them, .. I kept believing in the old adage of “Made in Heaven Marriages” and waiting for destiny to bring my Prince Charming to me …

Our proposal…  It all happened through Shaadi.Com … something which I never thought works but it does!

Our wedding theme/colours… I strongly believe that RED and GOLD are the auspicious colours of an Indian wedding … since red is related to Suhaag and Good Luck. Naturally, I insisted that we keep these colours as our wedding colours.

My dress… Naturally, the lehnga I chose had to be of the purest shade of red along with Zardosi work … I took nearly 3 months to find ‘The One’. I visited hundreds of shops in Mumbai, Kolkata and Banaras and finally found it at Bombay Selection Shop in Carol Bagh New Delhi … (Ironically … a Delhi shop called Bombay Selection!!)

My hair and make up… My wedding took place in the Holy City of Varanasi and hence the natural choice for makeup and hair here was VLCC- they really did a good job.

We chose our venue because… It is Aarambh’s hometown and of course the auspicious and holy city of Varanasi .I don’t think there could have been a more perfect place to take our wedding vows than here.

Our menu… In our community Non Vegetarian food is a must … hence our food was focused towards the Non Vegetarian delicacies more.

Our honeymoon… We are planning a Month Long Honeymoon to Andaman and Nicobar Island.

My favourite part of the wedding day… Our candid photography session! I blushed and how :)…

My piece of advice for other brides… Don’t take any chances when it comes to your make up or outfit or even your candid photographer … It’s your day … listen to your heart and fulfill your dreams.
