Published by Rekha Sanil on

When the much-in-love couple Poonam & Akshay contacted us to coordinate their big day, we knew right at the beginning we would enjoy their wedding planning! The elegant Telugu style wedding had everything in it to draw inspiration for your wedding preparation. A picture-perfect couple, impressive venues, classy decor and not to forget the spectacular pictures. Every aspect of their wedding was meticulously planned and the outcome is certainly remarkable! Here is a sneak peek of this ravishing Chennai wedding. They opted for the plush The Park Hotel to tie the knot and hosted a lavish reception at the stylish Hilton Chennai with enough glitz and glam. Photography by Arun Titan was effortless and beautiful, whereas the decor by Shribha was drool-worthy!

Meet The Bride And Groom

The happy couple had known each other for a decade before their friendship turned to romance.  Poonam narrates “It is actually an interesting story. We realized there was more to our friendship only when our respective families started doing rounds of matrimony websites. We started seeing about two years ago.” Soon after they sought the blessings of their family and got engaged. The bright and vivacious, Poonam complements Akshay’s quiet and gentle nature. However, their unanimous wedding related choices make it quite evident that they have a lot in common.

Wedding Planning For Poonam And Akshay

Through the early stages of the wedding planning, they were clear about their requirements which were:

  • A 5-star banquet hall in a city centre that would offer a perfect setting for a romantic indulgence.
  • A talented videography and photography team to capture all the candidness of the wedding day.
  • A wedding decor with attention to details.

Needless to say, our team was super excited at the opportunity to assist their wedding. Our task began with helping them source an ideal venue – The Park and Hilton for the wedding ceremony and reception respectively.

On The Wedding Day

As the pictures reveal, Poonam did complete justice to her traditional South Indian bridal look. For the wedding, she wore a heavy kanjeevaran silk saree that instantly stole the show. Similarly, the finishing touches included an elegant updo and natural touch makeup by Poco. Whereas Akshay’s silk shirt and veshti were occasion perfect.

Wedding Venue – The Park

The elegant and contemporary banquet halls in “The Park ticked almost all the wedding venue requirements” for the couple. From being centrally located to being fairly priced, The Park offered an ideal setting for their authentic Telugu wedding with friends and family. The wedding ceremony was attended by about 250 guests. Eventually, the grand interiors of Sansara Hall in rich silk, pale cream wall hue, brown velvet drapes and polished wood formed a perfect backdrop for the ritual rich wedding.

Reception Venue – Hilton Hotel

The couple fancied their reception at a “different venue from the wedding ceremony”. Hence, we shortlisted the iconic and romantic Hilton Hotel. As the ultra-luxurious venue had everything the couple dreamt of in their reception space, it was not difficult to make the decision. The pillar-less, Grand Ballroom, was “most appropriate for the lavish party they planned to celebrate the occasion.” From a dedicated entrance to a spacious pre-function area to the regal decor, it was indeed impeccable. Similarly, the hall was comfortable for a guest list of 350.reception A Lovely Couple, A Gorgeous Wedding And Loads Of Wedding Ideas! Stories

Wedding Photography

The couple wanted a wedding photographer whose working style is a personal match for them. Ace wedding photographer Arun Titan bit the bill perfectly for them. And we are delighted that we could assist them in finalizing the photographer of their choice.  The team beautifully captured the authentic emotion, natural connections, and unscripted moments of the wedding day. Needless to say, the candid photographs reveal a unique story of this sweet young couple. Poonam says “Arun and his team were very friendly to work with and made us feel very comfortable. They have produced amazing photos that will take us back to the moment in a real, meaningful way every time we look at them in the future.”

Wedding Decor

The team at Shribha Decor created some of the most stunning arrangements for Poonam and Akshay. The wedding mandap decor was every bit royal in hues of gold and white. It was a combination of drapes and flowers. Furthermore,  the inclusion of hanging diyas at the top of the arrangements added an artistic touch to the classic design. At the reception, the stage decor included drapes, white flowers and glass vases. As a result, the newlyweds stood out against the simple yet sophisticated stage.
