Elegant-chic wedding highlights in the Royal Land, Udaipur

Udaipur, formally known as the city of lakes and Venice of East is a busy destination all round the year bestowing Luxe Weddings!

The capital of the former princely state of Mewar is a beautiful city in Rajasthan with enriching heritage and culture, setting picturesque views of Lake Pichola and Aravalli alongside the royal heritage properties reserved for the  opulent weddings.

From the recent wedding of Kresha and Vanraj held at The Leela Palace in Udaipur, we admire the simple, elegant and chic designer thoughts rendered for this splendid affair.

Admiring Designer Story-telling Lehenga:

Kresha Bajaj, the Koesch girl; designed her epic lehenga weaved in zardozi threads into the patterns detailing her amour.

The wedding designer Sakshi Jerath has an innate creative vision as she synchronised every aspect of this wedding excellently; keeping the aesthetics of the venue and Kresha’s perspective intact.

Admiring Set-ups:

The noon decor instilled pastels and lucid settings arousing the look and feel of guava gardens. Around 1600 origami birds were set across the guava garden for a luncheon ceremony.

Admiring Sangeet Theme:

The sangeet function was adorned with Rose and Gold theme held at the ballroom of the hotel. The backdrop was a frame of approx. 60K rose petals; 200 strands each made of 300 rose petals.  A spellbinding glass bar with zig zag pattern with candle-lit backdrop was created bringing the theme for the evening.







Admiring White Wedding Ceremony:

The wedding ceremony  was under an elegant white mandap set at the outer courtyard of The Leela Palace.



Sakshi says, ” Kresha was keen on a white mandap as it would go well with her customised designer lehenga. I got convinced as it complimented with the black-white checkered flooring elevating the look of the courtyard.”

The chuppah comprised of tuberoses, edgings with pink Kaner (indian oleanders) and about 200 customised glass bells dangling from the dome.

Sakshi mentions that she used 6K-7K tuberoses stringed horizontally and 2K-3K tuberoses stringed vertically to give formations of arches and danglers adding density to the mandap.


The lawn around the mandap was filled with 2000 wax votives serving as a backdrop for the bride and groom and upraising the whole ceremony that commenced at the hour of twilight.
