Delhi-based Shreya and Shalabh got married in Pattaya. The wedding
functions of Shreya, a homemaker and Shalabh, an Analyst with Barista
were held between 12th and 15th November at Amari Orchid, Dusit Thani and Grand Centara Mirage, Pattaya. Over 140 guests flew
in from India and Gurgaon-based Foreign Wedding Planners (FWP) managed
the entire event—the accommodation, decor &
logistics, F & B, hospitality, travel arrangements and entertainment.
FWP are destination wedding planners specialising in Indian Weddings
in Thailand. Explains Neha Mehrotra of FWP: “Shreya and Shalabh chose
Thailand as they wanted a destination with an amazing ambience and one
where all of them could feel as if they were holidaying and relaxing.
The bride and groom chose Grand Centara Mirage, Pattaya because they
had heard a lot about the property from their friends. Also the
location for the pheras in the hotel was under the sky-- and they
wanted this ambience and feel."
The functions included a sea-side welcome party at Dusit Thani where
the theme was ‘Blue’ to match the bride’s blue ensemble. The mehendi
on 13th November was held at Amari Orchid. The theme was yellow and
the venue was decorated with lots of candles and the ambience was
traditional. The decor elements included green, yellow and white
orchids, beautiful ice sculptures, yellow & gold satin fabrics and
traditional Punjabi folk singers performed.
The choora and haldi ceremony was held in the morning of 14th
November. The Wedding & Reception was at Grand Centara Mirage in
Pattaya. The colors of the evening were purple & pink. The pheras were
held by the sunset, at a huge mandap decorated with tons of orchids,
gold kaliras and satin fabric.
Shreya wore a blue gown for the welcome night and a yellow sharara for
the Mehendi. For the wedding and reception, she wore an ensemble by
Anamika Khanna-- a purple & pink lehenga with lots of silver and gold
wire work and zardozi.
Says Shreya: “Neha of Foreign Wedding Planners in a perfect
coordinator and took care of all the details. We wanted a fairytale
wedding and that is exactly how our wedding turned out to be”.
