Shauna & Sachin Jaipur
Samode Palace, Jaipur saw a different kind of destination Indian wedding this time around. There were no grand chandeliers or typical clustered floral arrangements – the wedding of Shauna and Sachin was one of a kind awesome, loaded with tons of boho-kitsch elements. For Shauna, she always dreamed of having a wedding like that of Aladdin and Jasmine. The groom rides on an elephant to meet his bride waiting for him in a palace. The exotic top and harem pant in hues of sky blue was every little girls dream outfit for a fancy dress competition – but Shauna brought this desire to life. Amalgamating the Disney princess dream along with desi tones of red and gold she looked like a striking contemporary princess! A two day destination wedding celebration that began with the mehndi and welcome party where Samode Palace, Jaipur was transformed into a Coachella-like space with loads of colour, dance and whole lot of love. Shauna and Sachin had a vision of a wedding that was different, exotic and yet desi. Along with their wedding planners, Yes Media, they were able to whip up a wedding at Samode Palace, Jaipur that had all the elements of an boho-chic celebration yet had the warmth and closeness of a destination Indian wedding!
Major props to The Royal Affair who captured every element of this cross-cultural destination wedding in all its kitschy glory!
