Keval and Meera first met on the DilMil dating app and their wedding included a beautiful winter-inspired ‘Frosted’ reception in the sunny Emirate of Ajman.
After a surprises-laded proposal in Dubai, Meera and Keval wanted no surprises on their wedding, so they picked their vendors carefully, to be held at the luxurious
Fairmont Ajman, UAE. As a result, their nuptials with its cool thematic events went off smoothly.
Here are some interesting highlights and stunning pictures of the events.
“The beach party took place on the first day. The party began at 5 pm and when on till midnight. The theme for this was ‘Carnival,’ and the dress code was florals for the ladies, and linen for the men. We had floral decor and a gorgeous photo booth. The pictures clicked there were sent to the rooms of all their guests as memories that they could take away from the wedding. They had fire dancers, lots of music, a percussionist, Walter Scalzone – who was amazing, and even a team of mixologists who go by the name The Flaming Trio. Everyone partied together and danced the night away. The decor was done by Timeless Events, and they were good with their concepts and ideas. They were so easy to connect with and understood exactly what I wanted.”
The ‘Moroccan Mehendi’ was held at the Arabic themed restaurant at the hotel. The space was so nicely done that very minimal decor was needed. They had floral arrangements and the vibe once again was fairly informal. For entertainment, they had tanoura dancers and a Turkish ice cream man who performed tricks with his desserts.
Mughal Mystique’ was the theme of the sangeet, and they had friends emcee the whole event as well as give speeches. The bride and her nine-year-old niece did solos. Other performances included the brides dance with her sisters, a medley to which their friends danced and a surprise performance by their cousins. The mixologists created cocktails and mocktails that were not only created especially for their wedding but also christened after their names and their wedding hashtag.”
“Keval and Meera had their pheras in the evening, and Keval chose to enter the venue on a camel instead of on a horse. The mandap featured beautiful spirals that were created using fresh flowers, and the overall appearance was ombre. They exchanged our vows just as the sun was setting, and it was magical. Meera walked down the aisle to a song that she had pre-recorded. Keval, and Meera left quickly after a happy ‘vidai’ (farewell for the bride) because Meera was very sure that she did not want to cry at her wedding.”
Their story has had a winter theme to it, so they were keen on representing that in some way at their wedding. The theme for their reception, therefore, was ‘Frosted.’ The decor here was mind-blowing, and they weren’t expecting it to be anything like the way it turned out. There was fake snow on the stage and the dance floor, the tables looked like ice cubes, and their cake came down from the ceiling. It was beyond what They had expected in every sense. On this night, they had speeches by their family and Raaga Factory, a band from Dubai, played live during dinner.”
