“The heart wants what it wants”, Selena Gomez said that right. These lyrics are apt for our today’s couple, Mehandi and Shivam who first met at a club in London. Somehow they got into an argument so like a gentleman Shivam wanted to apologise to her and connect with her on Facebook. After chatting for a few months they lost touch for 4 years. In July 2019, he texted her again and they got talking. After chatting again for 4 months they knew they were fond of each other and then there was no looking back. There was no proposal as such as their hearts knew it was meant to be 4 years ago. She always wanted a homestyle Marwari wedding, so for them The Oberoi Rajvilas, Jaipur was just perfect. Their wedding was nothing short of a Sanjay Leela Bhansali movie and the bride’s red and olive green lehenga was just wow.
This Wedding Where The Bride Wore Red And Olive Green Lehenga Is Every Bit Royal:
1. Gaur Pooja
Their wedding commenced with a traditional Rajasthani Gaur pooja ,which is performed by the brides’ family at their home.
The bride wore a bright red saree paired with a diamond and emerald necklace.
And the bride pops the champagne!
2. Bhaat Ceremony
The vibe of their bhaat ceremony was a summer boho theme. It had teepee tents, an entrance full of Turkish kilims, pampas grass, beige and ivory drapes, lots of macrame and rustic wooden furniture. The function started off with a traditional note but with a modern vibe and then followed by a champagne brunch.
Mehandi kept her look very simple and we absolutely loved it. She wore a stunning scalloped saree by Anamika Khanna.

Her glamorous floral blouse and her ponytail was just perfect.
All smiles with the bride’s tribe.
Kudos to these bridesmaids for wearing mismatched dresses.
Dancing all the way!
Shivam wore a white kurta pyjama paired with threadwork beige Nehru jacket.
Before the sangeet ceremony they had a traditional Mudda ceremony.

The couple wanted to keep the sangeet decor very cozy. So they incorporated foliage, Pampas grass and lanterns for the ceremony.
Don’t miss out on gorgeous brocade blouse designs.
The groom was spotted in a classic black bandhgala sherwani, needless to say the couple is made for each other.
How graceful this bridal dancing shot looks.
Every dance performance is incomplete without some bhangra steps into it.
Time for the couple’s first dance.
4. Haldi Ceremony
She wore a basic baby pink sharara suit with a printed dupatta.
There was no haldi too, the ritual was performed with fruit pulp in coconut shells.
The function ended on a fun note with a phoolon ki holi.
5. Marwari Wedding
Mehandi and Shivam had a royal and very traditional Rajasthani wedding. The groom looked like a King in his beige bandhgala sherwani paired with a safa with emerald green groom jewellery.
Vintage cars for baraat is always a fab idea!
Mehandi looked stellar in her heavily embroidered red and olive green lehenga. Truly a royal Marwari bride!
She kept her makeup subtle with heavy gold jewellery which consisted of choker with a dangler necklace, typical Rajasthani matha patti, statement rings and kade.
Mandatory shot with the squad.
Brothers to the rescue.
The King watches her Queen as she takes steps towards their forever.
The jaimala shot.
The bride always wanted her pheras to be in a Mandir and she was lucky to have it in a 300 years old pristine.
6. Reception Night
The couple wanted to keep it royal and grand for their wedding reception and Bollywood singer Jubin Nautiyal was the guest of the night.
Mehandi kept her look easy-breezy in a wine Sabyasachi saree paired whereas Shivam wore a navy blue bandhgala suit.
We wish Mehandi and Shivam a very happy and blissful married life ahead. Their various functions to the bride’s offbeat red and olive green lehenga everything was just extravagant and very well planned. We hope this wedding will be an inspiration for all those couples who are dreaming of a royal palace like wedding.
