Both Craig and Sayalee are Bankers by profession and work for Barclays and State Bank of Hyderabad respectively. With a common blue logo and an association of years with them, the couple thought, ‘Why not have a royal-blue theme for our Catholic wedding?’
Sayalee quips that, “People think that bankers are boring but we wanted to prove them wrong through our wedding.” Their Catholic marriage ceremony took place at Holy Cross Church in Bambolim, Goa. The bride’s wedding dress was custom made by Noreen Coelho from Bandra. Her simple yet impressive white wedding gown had a sheer veil and amazing threadwork. She also added a touch of traditional by wearing green bangles on her white gloves, while Craig wore a classy black wedding blazer was from Raymonds adorning a boutonniere that had a white rose. Catching the first glimpse of the royal blue theme was the flower bouquet in Sayalee’s hand wrapped up in an appealing ribbon. After exchanging vows of love, it was party time for the wedding couple in the party capital of India - Goa!
They were escorted to the reception venue at Goa’s Utorda Beach in a swanky BMW that had a blue logo, mini-drapes and flowers. Craig quotes, “We invited only a few of our very close friends and relatives to our wedding and wanted to have a great time with them.” The venue by the beach was lit up with in hues of blue and gave a serene view of the sunset. The bridesmaids wore a blue dress and the groomsmen suited-up in grey with matching blue ties. They screamed, yelled and posed enthusiastically in the DIY photobooth with humorous props in their hands. Sayalee laughs and says, “From 6 PM to 12 AM, everyone partied so hard that they forgot to eat the buffet made for them.”
They also had a picturesque outdoor photography session that was shot by Sheldon Pereira from Snappyshell Photography. He captured magical and candid moments like the couple kissing under the blue sky on a log bridge, a romantic heart shaped sand art with initials of the newlyweds and a walk that signified the new beginning of Craig and Sayalee’s life.
