Jun 13, 2011 Celebrity Wedding Pictures
The glitterati tweeted that it was the grandest Indian wedding and best-organised private extravaganza, while fashionistas commented that they had never seen so many people in the most exquisite designer wear under one roof– Pinky and Sanjay Reddy organised a dream wedding for their daughter, and there was so much buzz about the wedding, not just in Hyderabad, but in Mumbai too.

The wedding invite designed by Delhi’s famed Entertainment Design Company (EDC) was an exquisitely carved image of Lord Venkateswara with sweets in a specially designed box, and the special guests even received a ‘wow’ gift alongwith the invite- a Satya Paul or Sabyasachi saree! Here are some of pictures of the Celebs@ the Bollywood theme Sangeet and the Red and Gold theme wedding. The full Bachchan parivaar was there with their friends Tina Ambani and Sonali Bendre-Goldie Behl.

Abu-Sandeep who conceptualised the decor for all the wedding functions, were of course there.

We’re looking forward to seeing pictures of the bride and groom, and would love to know who designed their wedding ensembles. We heard Abu-Sandeep, Tarun Tahiliani, Rohit Bal and Shantanu-Nikhil designed their creations for different functions, while the family members picked traditional creations from Hyderabad-based designers Anand Kabra and Shravan Kumar.

May 16, 2011 Celeb Weddings to Watch out for
Hyderabad’s most high profile industrialists, Pinky and Sanjay Reddy (of GVK group) are hosting their daughter’s wedding in June. And here’s the big news, couture kings Abu Jani-Sandeep Khosla are designing the decor and sets for the three big celebrations- the Sangeet, Wedding and Reception. The Wedding Managers are Delhi based E-Factor and Hyderabad-based Dinaz Noria and the functions will be held at the expansive GMR Arena and HICC, not at the GVK owned hotel properties (they co-own three Taj properties in Hyderabad). Both the families (groom’s father Indukuri Syam Prasad Reddy runs Indu Projects) have a huge circle of friends and family, so they needed a venue that could accommodate atleast a few thousand guests. The first celebration is Pellikuture (bride’s getting ready ceremony) at the HICC. It is hosted by politician T.Subbarami Reddy (Pinky Reddy’s father) and the highlight of the evening is a Bharat Natyam recital by Hema Malini.
Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla have, over the years, come to be known for their supremely sublime clothes and somewhat surreal interiors (they have designed actress Dimple Kapadia’s home and their home accessories clients include Hollywood stars). Recently, they launched their decadent furniture and accessories line at Sussanne Roshan’s new store The Charcoal Project. But the only time we’ve heard about their involvement for shaadi decor was at Ash-Abhi’s home wedding. A few top couturiers like Tarun Tahiliani have ventured into wedding design & decor. Tahiliani set-up a luxury floral boutique in association with Ferns n Petals and his creative talent was seen at a Munjal wedding, Sanjeev Nanda’s sangeet at a farmhouse and at Krishna Bhupal’s (Sanjay Reddy’s nephew) wedding celebrations at Taj Falaknuma.
Abu-Sandeep also known as the Maharajas of Indian fashion, always maintain that they don’t make garments but heirlooms for their clients like the Bachchans and Mittals, Nita Ambani and Parmeshwar Godrej. What adds to their mystique is that they are extremely selective about who they meet or associate with. Hearsay— they personally meet a prospective bridal client only if her wedding lehenga budget exceeds Rs 10 lakh!
