Designer Anu PD Curates 'innovative' Wedding Diaries

This post is coming a wee bit late, and I am guessing that those of you who have been following me on social media platforms know the reason behind this late lateefi. But then as the wise men say, better late than never. So here I am to share a wonderful event experience with you all. A couple of weeks ago, I got this fun opportunity to be a part of a unique wedding celebration - a make-believe wedding that was a beautiful coming together of an ace fashion designer's creativity and a leading hotel chain's warm hospitality.

The creative community of Le Meridian, New Delhi, forged a unique partnership with fashion designer Anu PD to curate a photo shoot of a day-long mock wedding celebration - the Wedding Diaries. This unique fashion shoot was conceived and presented by Anu PD and aimed at capturing the special moments in a bride's life before she ties the nuptial knot and also provided a glimpse into one of Delhi's leading wedding venues with flawless service.

Guests and members of the media were invited to experience the nuances of a wedding, unfolding of a day of vivid experiences, the rituals of the wedding day and open the stage for a wedding shoot featuring ensembles by Anu PD label.

Let the fun begin!

The guests were taken on a journey of discovery of the hotel's perfect wedding venues for various ceremonies and rituals, accentuated by Anu PD's bridal wear collection. At Three Graces by Amatra, guests enjoyed special therapies to rejuvenate and were styled in Anu PD's accessories. The Three Graces spa made for a relaxing stop to pause and revivify before the hectic schedule ahead and everyone looked forward to the rituals ahead.

Post the rejuvenation break, it was time to deck up for the Mehndi ceremony. The styling experts at the beauty salon La Belle added a special touch to the wedding group with their special hair styles and make up for different ceremonies during the day.

The Mehndi Lunch at Allure was a grand affair with the bride dressed in Anu PD's bridal collection while her friends and family members were attired in Anu's ensembles. Later, Sovereign, the venue for the gala wedding came alive with the main wedding ceremony, with the bride and her guests all dressed in designer wear that spoke of style and elegance.


Beauties!


Here comes the bride!

The post wedding celebrations unfolded at a cocktail hosted at Nero, the chic bar where delectable selection of snacks and cocktails wit twists were served, but of course all eyes were on the bride dressed up in another one of Anu PD's lovely creations. 

The cock dresses! 

I guess the best line to wrap this post would be - 'And a fun day was had by all!' You would say it's such a cliché, but the truth is that indeed the idea of bringing fashion and hospitality together was not only innovative, but also great fun!
Check out my next post for the designer Anu PD's  lovely  bridal collection designs that are every bit worth coveting! Happy reading! :)
