Mihir & Bhavna's Wedding in Dubai, UAE
When Mihir and Bhavna's long lasting friendship from their university days turned into true love, a wedding celebration ensued in the City of Gold, Dubai.
How we met:
We met at the University of Wollongong and remained friends even after we completed the course. Eventually, friendship turned into love and we soon decided to take the plunge!
Our wedding was completely planned by our family members and we had no wedding organizer on board. It was a very personal and private affair for us, filled with loads of stress, excitement and fun all at the same time! Even though it was a tad bit tiring, it was definitely worth it in the end.
Feelings on the Big Day:
I was going through mixed emotions – thrilled to embark on this new journey of life, but at the same time, sad to leave my old life behind, especially my family.
My wedding outfits were primarily bought from Mumbai. Since the wedding was taking place in Dubai, a lot of things like the giveaways, etc. were sourced locally, as it was not feasible to get everything shipped from India.
Schedule of Events and Outfits worn on each function:
Mehendi Outfit by Meher & Riddhima
Sangeet outfit by Shantanu and Nikhil
Wedding outfit & Reception by Archana Kochhar
Since the wedding was held during winters, our requirement was to have an outdoor wedding. Our first visit to Grand Hyatt in Dubai made us fall in love with the venue, after which we didn’t really bother checking any other venue.
Few words on the photographer, videographer, hair/make-up artist, bartender and DJ:
Videographer – We chose Nitant Sabharwal who is based out of Delhi. He had done a few weddings in the past, so I knew his work was good. He did an excellent job and we had no trouble coordinating with his team.
Hair and Make up – Done by Jessie Tabla. His work was excellent, especially since he is a thorough professional.
DJ – We had DJ Sukhi playing at all our events.
We didn’t hire any bartenders, as both of us wanted the guests to have a good time.
Advice for to-be-weds:
Enjoy your big day to the fullest!
