Anusha & Shashank Balaclava
Desi weddings are known to be vibrant, loud and colourful, like a Bollywood movie coming to life. With gota jewellery, bright drapes, marigold laden rickshaw’s and so much more, our Indian weddings are never void of drama – whether it’s a drama or colours or literal drama with the mithaiwaala #TRUTH.
When Sam & Ekta of Sonder Frames Photography dropped Anusha and Shashank’s “desi” wedding in our inboxes, we were so pleasantly surprised! An all-white Indian wedding, who would’ve though could look so downright stunning! A comfortable change with all the elegance of a western wedding, we’d say! Minimal, fresh and tasteful, their destination wedding held at beach front in Mauritius at Hotel Intercontinental, Balaclava Fort was filled with simple ideas with an extra flair for the chic. Curated and ideated by this gorg couple and the talented team at RSVP Events who whipped up a wedding full of beauty for Anusha and Shashank! The pristine whiteness of their nuptials was well balanced out with colour in their mehndi, haldi and cocktail party.
Planned to the last detail, this wedding saw friends and family from around the world coming together for a celebration of love. By the end of the wedding, we felt like family too!
