THE BRIDAL AFFAIR INDIA BLOG

Welcome to the real wedding of Sanaa & Siddhanth who’s love story began on a treadmill and finally landed up at their sunset mandap in Goa!

 

Their Story

“Of all the places in the world, my husband and I met at the gym! We first struck up a conversation while walking on the treadmills and from there a very special relationship began. We exchanged numbers to compete with each other on the FitBit (or at least that was the excuse) and the rest, as they say, is history.”

 

The Venue

“Holiday Inn, Goa – We always wanted a sunset wedding on the beach and this property, with its own beach, was a perfect choice. We saw a number of properties before we settled on this one, but as soon as we walked in for the first time we just knew this was where we were meant to be married.”

 

The Events

“We included details and anecdotes to allow the wedding and all our functions seem more personal. From signages across the venues, to notes as table centre pieces, a lot of thought went into making the wedding a more intimate experience. In fact our last function – the wedding after party – was a pyjama party! When we say that we only wanted everyone to let their hair down and celebrate with us, we really meant that. So we encouraged everyone to leave all the heavy Indian finery behind, put on their comfiest pjs and just come downstairs to party with us!”

Vendor Reviews

Urmi Kaur: My only brief to her was that I wanted the make-up to look natural and she made sure I looked my prettiest. I wanted to look as natural as I possibly could and Urmi made sure of that.

 

Wedding Nama: They were an absolute dream to work with. They took the time to get to know us on a personal level. There were so many moments we would have missed if it wasn’t for their sheer magic! For instance, I would have never known that Sidhanth teared up when he saw me walking down the aisle for the first time!

 

The Doli Diary: They planned our wedding for us as well. Neha & Jinal, along with their fabulous team, made this entire process so seamless and stress-free. Every tiny detail, all that we had imagined our wedding to encapsulate – their team took care of everything. They were literally the backbone of our entire wedding. Along with both our families, they put together the wedding of our dreams and made sure that we had the best time while celebrating our wedding weekend.
