Indian Wedding

Posted by Shawna

When Mili tells me that she is going off to shoot a wedding, my excitement starts to build even before she packs up her camera. Like any top notch photographer, she is in the exact right place at the exact right time and gets the big shots.  But, what I have come to adore about Memories in Motion, is that they capture the smallest of details with that same degree of perfection.






Amazing, isn’t it?  We are just getting warmed up around here….lots more in store!

Destination Wedding

Dubai-based Sawlanis (bride) and London-based Ahluwalias chose a little offbeat place for their destination wedding—Amritsar. They chose the city because of the Golden Temple, and the venue was the city’s only 5-star hotel Ista Hotel.

 300 guests attended the wedding, and were treated to a magical experience. Rimjhim Bhagchandani, the Dubai-based ace Wedding Planner who managed the three-day affair tells us why the wedding was very special. “I too got an opportunity to visit the Golden Temple at 4.00 am for the Palki ceremony—and it was a heavenly experience. Also, over the planning stages I grew very fond of the bride and her sister, Rinku. It was such a fun experience working with them and I have such wonderful memories of the families and Amritsar. And I sincerely hope more couples consider Amritsar as a destination wedding location.”

 Moroccan theme – Bedazzled and Bejewelled The theme for the first main function, the engagement was ‘Bedazzled and Bejeweled’. It was held at Forest Farm House and the catering was handled by The Four Seasons in Chandigarh. For the entertainment, fire dancers performed in synchronization with Dhol players. The bar tending team was flown in from Delhi.


 Folk theme – Lets do Balle Balle Since the wedding was in Amritsar, they wanted the guests to experience the amazing food which Amritsar is famous for and the Punjabi Dhaaba experience. The Mehendi function on Day 2 had a typical Punjabi village theme featuring food stalls from the famous dhaabas of Amritsar, and Bhangra dancers from Ludhiana.


 The decor was very colorful featuring a lot of charpais and straw huts, not to forget the well and the typical Basanti kaa Tanga from Sholay. The ladies were busy getting mehendi and parandis done, while the men were busy at the Theka (traditional village style bar) and the kids at the game stalls and the giant wheel! One of the highlights was the photo corners, as guests could pose for pictures on a hay stack or a typical village truck.

 The couple entered the function on a red tractor decorated with marigold flowers to the tune of Yamla Pagla Deewana. The wedding was a Sikh ceremony- Anand Karaj, held at the Gurudwara followed by Langar Prasad.


 Victorian theme – A new beginning The bride was looking for an elegant Victorian feel for the wedding reception which was held in the tented garden of the Ista hotel. The colors for the decor were soft pink and ivory with a lot of roses and drapes for the right ambience.

 The couple entered with a live saxophonist and Jannat, the fusion world music band from Delhi added the musical charm to the evening.

Saif and Tanim’s Wedding (Shaadi) was a colorful and fun-filled extravaganza planned to precision by Dubai’s ace Wedding Planner Rimjhim Bhagchandani

The celebrations commenced with a fun night of performances at the Mehendi function in Sheraton Creek Deira. Bright and fun colors all around the ballroom, a stunning Sabyasachi outfit worn by Tarnim and loads of adrenaline pumping performances by both sides of the families made for a perfect mehendi evening.

The wedding venue was Madinat Jumeirah on Jumeirah beach.  The setting was the Joharah ballroom of Madinat Jumeirah, the stage was over 50 feet wide and put together splendidly. A smaller draped stage to one side of the main stage was where the the Nikaah was held. After the Nikaah, Saif and Tarnim entered together lead by an entourage of Dabka dancers. After the evening concluded, rukhsati happened at the pier where the couple boarded a small boat and bid goodbye to the guests.

The Walima was held at The Symphony Ballroom at the Address hotel in downtown Dubai.  Says US based Mili Ghosh who photographed all the wedding functions: “Tarnim looked stunning in her bright red Manish Malhotra anarkali and her classic look took me back to the 50s bollywood.”  A Tanoora dancer and the ‘drums of the world’ group entertained guests throughout the Walima evening.  The long swirling colorful skirts that the Tanoura performer wore made spectacular patterns as he twirled around in circles. ‘Drums of the World’ percussion ensemble is a uniquely dynamic musical collective, it takes the form of a facilitated jazz/fusion ensemble using duns duns, djembes, tablas, doumbeks, clay pots, mouth harp, shekeres, bongos, and other world percussion instruments, that provide exciting vibes.

The Wedding evening concluded with a very fun and interactive drumming lesson session between the guests and the performers.

Planning the ‘Oh so Perfect’ wedding

Planning the ‘Oh so Perfect’ wedding

October 1st 2015


She makes your D Day perfect! She is the one who tells you all those little things that are nice to know, like that flowy silhouettes are all the rage or that Marsala is the colour of the season. She even gives you friendly, essential advice that you will later think, “I’m so glad someone told me that!” She makes sure nothing’s missing on your Dream Day. TeleLIFE meets Rimjhim Bhagchandani, Wedding Planner Extraordinaire and checks out her indispensable planning secrets.


Rimjhim Events is an event, wedding design & Management Company with offices in Dubai, U.A.E. and Florida, U.S.A. They provide end to end services from initial concept design to collating final guest lists to ultimate execution on your special day(s).


Till 2008 I was primarily focused on corporate launches, concerts & private parties. In December 2008, a client for whom I had organized corporate events asked me to handle his wedding. Whilst it was a great challenge and a phenomenal responsibility since I had never done something as personal as a wedding before, my client’s faith in me inspired me to take it on.

After extensive research and hard work, I was able to pull off the four functions and the client was delighted with the end result. From then on there was no looking back! Through each wedding I evolved and began to understand the nuances of what a wedding means to a family. I also discovered that I have a creative side and a passion for décor.


The last five years have been incredible and have taken me to Miami, Hua Hin, Phuket, Cebu, Amritsar & Pune to organize destination weddings for my clients. In addition, I handle about 12 weddings a year in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and the other neighbouring emirates.
I consider myself really fortunate to have worked with some of the most wonderful families and be a part of their memorable moments.

Weddings are extremely special & happy occasions. I love the fact that I am an intrinsic part of such an important and memorable event of a couple’s life.


Every wedding has something special & memorable. It could be as simple a thing as the blooming romance between the couple or a funny incident with the friends. The memories are so many, it’s difficult to list them down as it’s all spontaneous and for the moment.


Metallic with sequins and rose gold themes are very popular as they add instant glamour to an event. Shimmering linen, napkin holders, chunky head pieces and feathers are also very popular these days. The look is contemporary & stylish.
The previously popular pinks & lace are being replaced with more dramatic combinations of navy & orange, plum & grey and other unique colour combinations.
Another trend becoming popular is that brides and grooms are doing away with celebrity performers and opting for more dramatic theatrical performers. There is also a lot of focus on lighting. For an upcoming wedding, the bride has planned dream catcher gobos for her youngsters’ night.


The traditional stage set up where a couple stood for hours taking pictures with guests is now being replaced by Presidential Tables & the couple stepping down to meet family & friends. It’s now about innovative 5 tier cakes, champagne towers & dramatic entries.
Instagram has become a huge influencer. Most couples use wedding hashtags these days and desire an instagrammable wedding!

The bride and grooms’ personalities should be reflected not only in the décor but in all elements of the wedding as it is their special event. These days most couples are very aware and know exactly what they want. I work very closely with my clients to understand their vision and dreams; and my role is to make their dreams a reality ensuring that it is not just any other event.


I remember a few years ago a client wished to have a fairy come down from the sky and deliver the ring for the engagement ceremony; we made that happen through a heliosphere aerial act. I love to experiment with innovative and fresh concepts to provide my clients with something WOW! I make sure there is at least one signature element in each event which guests talk about even after the wedding is over. It could be a simple thing as a dry ice effect during the first dance or snowflakes falling during the cake cutting ceremony.

My main advice is that you should work with a wedding planner that you trust, one who has strong listening skills, has an excellent rapport with the vendors and is passionate about the work. While weddings are a memorable event, they can also be stressful. The wedding planner’s role is to eliminate that stress so you can enjoy your special time.


In addition:
• be clear about your vision and wants
• be open about your budgets so the planner can advise accordingly work intelligently around it.
• be open to considering new trends
• if in doubt, don’t hesitate to ask (beyond the regular wedding planner consultation, my team and I have connected brides with couture designers, card companies, coordinated travel schedules, sourced personalized favours, etc.).

Rimjhim believes in the Power behind One. They aim to provide the efficiencies and capabilities of an extensive corporate with the dedication and commitment of an individual who will be able to use years of expertise and an extensive team of vendors to help you create that WOW event|

Rimjhim Events does wow weddings and destination weddings accross the globe.

Sneha Adnani and Amrit Bhagnari – Cebu, Philippines

          Sneha Adnani and Amrit Bhagnari – Cebu, Philippines

Amrit and Sneha live in Dubai. They met at a nightclub for the first time and after chatting for a few minutes they figured a common connection. They chose Cebu, Philippines as their wedding destination.


Wedding Venue
It isn’t easy choosing an overseas location for a Destination Wedding which can meet all your and your family’s needs, and at the same time be convenient for all guests. After looking at various hotels in Thailand, Malaysia and India, we finally chose to host our wedding at Shangri-La Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu, Philippines. The destination was new for both of us, and for most of our guests too. Shangri-la Mactan Resort & Spa blew us away! It is surrounded by clear water, has a number of beautiful locations to host different functions at, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the rooms have a stunning beach view.

Wedding Planning
Since this was one of the biggest Indian weddings taking place in Cebu, planning was not very easy. From food, decor, lighting, music, to every little detail, Amrit and I were involved in all communication and planning and we took the help of Philippines-based Wedding Planner Stanz Catalan for execution. Stanz is a Filipino but she did a fine job of managing our Indian wedding, and she executed everything as per our imagination and plans. She also helped us get the best of suppliers in Cebu, and worked closely with the Shangri-La team who were extremely co-operative, so overall we were comfortable closer to the wedding day 

We also hired the services of Dubai-based Rimjhim Bhagchandani as our Wedding Consultant as she knows our families, with her added help, the Planner and Hotel ensured everything went off the way we wanted it to be.

Wedding Events
The wedding festivities took place over 3 days. We had 8 functions, and each one of them had a different theme, and were held at different locations within the property.

15th February, Welcome Dinner, Cowrie Cove- As this was the first event and a new destination for most guests, the Welcome dinner gave a feel of the Filipino culture. We used royal blue and white as the main colors for the decor, that was embellished with local elements such as capiz shells. The other highlight of the evening was a performance by Shobna Chandramohan, the popular wedding singer from Dubai.

16th February night, Engagement- The theme was ‘Winter Wonderland’, so we chose colors like white and silver for decor. The entire ballroom was draped in white cloth, and we used winter trees and snowflakes to reflect the theme. Our main entertainer for the night was a Violinist from the Philippines named Juleus. We entered alongside him, and he continued playing some amazing commercial tracks.

16th February night, Youngsters party and Ghazal night, Cowrie Cove and Ocean Pavilion- After the Engagement, we had a Youngsters and Ghazal party planned at two different venues. For the Youngsters, we chose ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ as the theme, because the venue was a deck surrounded by the ocean. Our entry for this event was on a speedboat, which I should say, stunned most guests! The decor elements included ship sails, skeleton scarves and pirate patches as props. We had DJ Manoj from Dubai and local Filipino dancers for this night, who performed to different Bollywood tracks. We also setup a photo-booth so guests could get some fun pictures on the spot. 

The Ghazal night was of course a quieter event. Themed ‘Jashn-E-Bahaar’, a singer from Jakarta alongwith Shobna Chandramohan, kept the guests entertained with old Bollywood hits.

17th February afternoon, Pool Party- The Spanish inspiration theme ‘Sangria under the Sun’ was the most fun event of our wedding. We used colors like red, orange and yellow to create the Spanish feel, and me and Amrit entered the venue with Spanish flamingos. Sangria and other cocktails were served by Bombay Bartenders ‘Flaming Trio’, and it turned out to be a fun-filled, activity-packed event with barbecues, relaxing massages and DJ Manoj playing some great upbeat tracks.

17th February night, Sangeet, The Marquee- Our Sangeet later in the evening was themed ‘Turkish- Ottoman Empire’. For the decor we used colors such as blue and green, with a touch of gold. The event featured performances from our family and friends, LED Dhol players and DJ Manoj spinning music till the wee hours of the morning.

18th February afternoon, Wedding Ceremony- As Amrit and I always wanted a beach wedding, we had our Mandap set up by the beach. It was quite large and accommodated around 20 people. We entered alongside our cousin brothers holding a flowerbed above us. We chose colors such as pink, red and gold for the decor, to reflect the classic colors of the ceremony.

18th February night, Wedding Reception, Mactan Ballroom- The Theme was ‘The Grand Ball’, and the ballroom was decorated with crystals and bling, and designed in colors of lavender and white. We felt like ‘VVIPs’ as we entered the grand function accompanied by 20 Philippine Military cadets blowing trumpets and performing a march. Wedding speeches by family and friends, cake cutting, photo and video highlights cherishing the 3-day wedding were the highlights of this Grand Finale event.
