“To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world..”
Today’s wedding promises to tug on your heartstrings. Meet Varsha and Guru, a stunning Chennai couple who wed late last year in an elegant Telugu wedding ceremony.
Often you come across a love story that just makes your heart skip a beat. I think we’ve found that in Varsha and Guru’s perfect love story. It took Guru a couple of attempts to capture Varsha’s heart, but according to him, the wait was totally worth it. Today, these two lovebirds call their story a “fantasy.”
We are in awe of Varsha’s beautiful wedding trousseau and the attention to detail that she had placed on ensuring that this was the perfect celebration. From the pre-wedding shoot to the honeymoon, the couple has shown that organization is key to pulling off the ultimate wedding. Just wait until you see the beautiful photographs captured by popular Chennai based wedding photographers, Studio 31!
Power Of Love
When the couple met around 6 years ago in Chennai it was love at first sight. Well, for Guru that is. However for Varsha, she states that things just clicked for the both of them from the very beginning of their relationship.
“There are certain people you will meet in your life who you just connect with and you know that it isn’t quite the typical feeling. You start to understand each other so perfectly. Suddenly he was my everything and there was nothing more that I could ask for.”
Varsha and Guru have experienced such beautiful moments together and amongst friends too. As it so happens, the wedding proposal took place amongst their mutual friends.
The blushing maharani bride had the overwhelming task of organizing most of the wedding herself as in between, Guru had to travel to Sydney due to work commitments.
Despite the mammoth task, Varsha took it upon herself to finalize all the wedding details.
“I took decisions on his behalf and that was quite overwhelming, but thanks to my interest in planning and event management, this helped me to frame some ideas together.”
For Varsha and Guru, it was clear that the two most important elements of their Telugu wedding were the venue selection and the catering.
“We began by choosing our venue. Both of us wanted it to be an elegant and classic venue, so we shortlisted two resorts on the beautiful and breezy East Coast Road, but in the end we locked in Chennai Convention Centre. Catering was also a top priority for both families. We opted for a very close family friend of ours, Mani Iyer. In the past, he has catered for a number of family functions, and we have always enjoyed the quality of the food.”
The elegant Telugu wedding ran over 2 days in the presence of close family and friends with décor covered completely by the venue coordinator.
“Aishwarya, our venue coordinator, looked into every detail of the decor. For the reception stage we had a subtle and pleasant combination of pink, red and white daisy flowers and on the wedding day (muhurtham décor), we had a bright and vibrant combination of orange and yellow marigold flowers.”
This couple really planned everything to a T, organising two stunning photo shoots in Pondicherry and Paris!
“The pre-wedding shoot took place in Pondicherry. We had two themes for this shoot, one was to capture sunrise and the other was a fun and playful day shoot. Our post-wedding shoot was planned on our honeymoon by Guru and that was by sheer surprise. Held in Paris, we chose formal attire. The entire shoot was a great experience and we loved how the Eiffel Tower was so beautifully captured in every single frame.”
Varsha mentioned that the whole event was full of energy and a lot of celebrations with nearest and dearest family members and friends. Herself and Guru even busted a few moves on the dance floor, with the first dance song choice being ‘Tu Cheez Badi Hai.’
Saree Not Sorry
When it comes to saree shopping, Chennai is brimming with beautiful and elegant boutiques, but for bride, Varsha, she couldn’t go past one of the oldest and most trusted brands in the industry, Nalli. She also handpicked a few silk sarees from VaraMahalakshmi.
