This Goa wedding had all elements of a modern, quirky fairy-tale wedding. The theme, being Vintage and Contemporary, the wedding stood for the reasons you’d soon be witnessing.
Meet Astha and Abhishek, the protagonists of this Pinterest looking fairy tale.
“I wanted my wedding to be fun – we didn’t want to stand on stage and just get congratulated. We first convinced our family – they agreed to a small but fun wedding. The destination was a bit of a problem – from Udaipur to Ahmedabad and Pondicherry we searched everywhere. In the end, we came across Marbella which is a beautiful property and along with La Cabanna where all our guests can happily stay in Goa,” says Astha.
The engagement was a bright beachy affair.
“My Engagement outfit was again designed by me and it had intricate embroidery of pretty doves on my gown made of soft pink organza, it had huge underskirt which was made out of more then around 50 metres of net. And I wore stunning Sophia Webster ‘wifey for lifey ‘ bridal heels…they are a piece of art. Abhishek’s outfit was made by Gabbana studio, a three-piece suit with a logo I specially designed with our date initials as a souvenir”, says Aastha.
From pretty quirks
To a fairy-tale bride entourage
And happy guests having an amazing time
Everything spelled poster perfect.
A night of dance, overflowing champagne, and Latin dancers, the sangeet was as wild as it could get.
Yes, this is what we meant.
There were beautiful details taken care of
And beautiful people having the time of their life.
The Mehendi and Pool Party
A fun pool affair, the Mehendi was an event of beautiful Pinterest worthy shots. Save them .
There were tissues for happy tears and envelopes for strict advices.
The bride looked lovely shining bright in yellow.
Together, these two gave us goals of how to get the right amount of drench and still look Insta-perfect on your wedding.
Finally, the D-Day was here.
“Coming from traditional family of small town Kota, I was asked to meet guys and I said no randomly to many because I felt I wasn’t ready. I was enjoying my work way too much at the time. In 2014 I was given strict instructions to meet this guy..I was way too busy in some shoot that time so I ignored it. Suddenly one morning I saw a message from a guy on my FB, ‘ Hi, isn’t it a better platform to meet?’ And after few calls back home I realised it was Abhishek, the one I am suppose to meet. And we started talking. We liked each other but we weren’t really convinced. I left for UK for a vacation for a month we hardly talked but I think that was the time when both us realised we need each other in our lives. He proposed after I came back and I said yes” says Astha.
What could possibly be a more gorgeous backdrop than this?
The bride shone in her divine amazing-ness.
And when she walked in with her entourage,
It wasn’t just the dapper-looking groom who was stunned.
This wedding was one of those asking you to put hashtag “Goals” everywhere.
