The fairytale romance of Namha, a Punjabi and Edul, a Parsi was nothing short of a rollercoaster ride. As the two love birds got their friends and families in place for this wedding, Covid just happened and they could not go ahead with their mega celebrations. Hailing from two different cultures, they went ahead with a civil marriage, most couples are doing it these days. And once the ceremonies are over, it’s about love that is celebrated through a beautiful dinner with loved ones around cheering them on.
The set-up & decor:
OTT décor was replaced by sturdy court walls with a bit of old-school glamour thrown in. Instead of heavy embroideries and weight-y extravagant ensembles, the couple went ahead with lightweight outfits in pastel shades and the big fat Indian wedding celebration was now, a court marriage with a band playing quietly on the side while loved ones gathered around. We love how the tables in wood glistened in the light with white and pink flowers with a touch of gold decor. The muted greens and golds on the couple looked resplendent against the light and the bride wore her kundan jewellery accentuated by pearls which showcased her love for simple and practical style.
The process was simple – the wedding planners have divided their marriage ceremony into two parts. One, the civil registration and then the traditional Indian rituals and marriage customs followed by a big lunch. Edul Mahudavala and Namha Malhotra’s journey is all about simplicity in modernity – and the wedding was a testament to that spirit.
