The Couple is based out of UK and wanted the ultimate experience of Dubai. One of the things that I remembered was the bride mentioning it was her mom’s dream to get her married at the Taj property, and so it seemed right to shortlist Taj Exotica Dubai, The Palm.

The couple was straight up they didn’t want anything usual at the wedding. Based on the same we picked the themes for it. For Haldi Maiyan it was an Arabic theme, For Jago sangeet we played with Mad Hatter’s party. If you look at the cards hanging it had bride and groom pictures incorporated in it.

The wedding was at the Gurudwara followed by Lunch which was curated Langar style menu at one of the restaurants at Taj. The reception was the Glowing Neon Jungle. We had custom-curated perfumes as favors with the bride and groom branding a mix of special perfumes based on the Arabic perfumes they liked it was customised fragrance only curated for the event.

You rarely find a bride with such a clear vision of what she wants. I would say not your regular bride which also makes us up our game. She was involved at each step from designing of invitation cards to décor to menu planning. She was the one who styled the entire wardrobe with different designers for each event.
