Gaganjot and Manak got married in Bangkok. Their wedding celebrations commenced with a kitsch theme Mehendi at Sofitel Sukhumvit. The decor for this function was inspired by pop-art- riot of colors and kitsch artwork.
The ‘Glam Du Jour’ theme sangeet & ring ceremony was held the next day at the big ballroom of Hotel Plaza Athenee. Inspired by Moulin Rouge, the decor featured rich colors, deep shades of maroon, purple and gold. Shobana, the popular singer from Dubai sang melodious songs and the bride was dressed in a beautiful Sabyasachi lengha.
The Wedding ceremony at the Gurudwara was a simple and traditional affair.

Nizar Wattad and Ayesha Hashmi’s wedding festivities in Bangkok were a 3 day fun-filled affair. Nizar is a well-known Palestinian rapper, hip hop producer and screenwriter based in the US. Ayesha is a Hindu-Muslim, who grew up in Bangkok and later moved to work in the US. The celebration with over 200 family members, relatives and friends was held at a tranquil haven in the vivacious city- Plaza Athenee in Bangkok.
Ayesha and Nizar are very charming and have loads of charisma. So naturally, the sangeet ceremony of the uber creative couple was a special affair. The talented groom added his personal touch to the sangeet celebrations, with fusion-rap performances- he and his friends renowned rappers Yassin Alsalman (popularly known as the The Narcicyst) and Omar Offendum performed three rap songs, to receive a thunderous applause from all the guests.
The wedding was planned to perfection by Viji and Khalid Hashim (Ayesha’s parents) and managed by Bangkok-based Keeran Baweja who runs ‘Weddings by Keeran’. The celebrations included a Welcome Dinner on a River Cruise, and a Grand Reception with performances by Bangkok’s must-see attractions like the Puppet Show and Thousand Hands.
