5 Things We Loved About This Bollywood-Obsessed Wedding In Turkey

BY Bhakti Parekh | 17 Apr, 2024 | 1185 views | 6 min read

Those who grew up watching 90's Bollywood may remember the iconic line from the cult classic, Kuch Kuch Hota Hain, ''Pyaar Dosti Hain'' (who is not an SRK fan?!?). A real-life stellar manifestation of the same, one such love story depicts the definition of togetherness that is rooted in a strong foundation of friendship. This gorgeous Indian couple from Spain, Kajal and Rishi's love story offers proof of the fact that two people who are destined to be together will always find their way back home, despite miles and challenges between them.

Their trending wedding festivities created quite a stir against the grand, palatial backdrop of the Titanic Mardan Palace in Antalya, Turkey, as they defined magnificent goals for a fun, regal wedding and tied the knot in a fashion that befitted a dreamy fairytale saga. But before we get into these specifics, let's go back to where it all started!

Meet Kajal and Rishi

Epitomizing the notion of both growing up together and being high school sweethearts, Kajal and her partner, Rishi met when they were 12 years old. Sharing their journey, our blushing bride exclaimed, "Rishi had just arrived from India, and he joined my school. Our first encounter occurred on the morning bus journey when we both sat next to my brother." She continues, reminiscing warmly, "Little did I know back then that this encounter would lead to a remarkable story of love."

She tells us, "After my first year in London, we decided to meet up for the Carnival in our hometown, and that's where we truly acknowledged our feelings for each other." In a serendipitous moment, they decided to give their relationship a try, and the rest they say is history! Acing the long-distance game, here they were 9 years later, ready to be man and wife! Well, well- we're all feeling those goosebumps, isn't it?

Fairytale Bliss: What We Loved About this Royal Wedding!

Living the quintessential dream of getting married in a royal palace,  the #DilKaRishta wedding was a glorious celebration of two hearts magically entwining together until infinity. Having us all wishing that we could be there to witness these enchanting festivities, Kajal and Rishi's ceremonies have redefined the idea of grand weddings and how! Here's what we absolutely loved about their festivities. 

A Bollywood-Lovin' Hashtag

Giving their celebrations a filmy spin, we love how this couple opted for a catchy (and totally appropriate for their love-glazed milestone, might we add) social media hashtag! After all, it is a union of two hearts and souls!

Bride and Groom's Fashion Game

Taking a cue from their style diaries, one thing is certain- this couple regaled us all with their ultra-glam avatar at all their functions. With each event having an eclectic theme that was an extension of their personalities, here's how these lovebirds dressed the part.

Decor Éclat's That Elevated The Grandiosity

Now here's one wedding fiesta that added a vibrant zest to the festivities, thanks to the uniquely creative themes that were different for each event. While a myriad of emotions enveloped the atmosphere around them, this couple really knew how to up the ante and get innovative on this front. Striking an amazing balance between age-old traditions and contemporary norms, their decor was pretty trendy! 

Haldi

Beaming with marigold garlands, sunflowers, and bright yellow tapestries, Kajal and Rishi's Turkish Bazaar-inspired, Phoolon Ki Haldi was every bit as vibrant and joyful as the ambiance around. To make things more fun, the couple event opted for knick-knacks like quirky badges and souvenirs.

But what we absolutely loved about this soiree was this uber-cool, 'Ring for Champagne' stall to prep yourself to raise a toast. Ah-mazing, right!?

Sangeet

Let's talk about going all out to satiate your B-Town fever! This Bollywood-inspired Sangeet extravaganza recreated old-school Bollywood charm and how! Whether it was the yesteryear ticket counter, cinema halls, action signboards, classic bugle, the classic 'lady in black', or even our country's superstar doppelgangers, the couple ensured to give their guests a starry night to remember.

Well, well! This is what fairytale dreams are made of! The pastel pink and white decor looked gorgeous against the life-size Ganpati idol, which we feel added a sense of serene bliss around. Would you agree? Moreover, the lush green and floral mandap, too, seamlessly blended in with the surroundings. 

After Party

To commemorate the couple's happily ever after, they decided to throw a Las Vegas Casino-themed after-party! While the couple definitely hit the 'jackpot' with each other, we're absolutely drooling over this entertaining emulation of the slot machines and a bingo entrance.

Two words- Manifestation Magic! From a dreamlike regal bridal entry with her color-coordinated bride tribe to a lit (quite literally) glorious union with her better half at the altar, this scene definitely had us rapt in its splendour.

Heart-melting Performances

It's all about loving your family, isn't it? Whether it was the bride and the groom shaking a leg with their respective squad, to the former gracefully enthralling everyone with a special dedication for her parents, or sharing a moment with her beau, they truly danced like there was no tomorrow!

A relevant feat. for today's millennial weddings, our much-in-love couple definitely rocked their social media game as seen on their gram with the help of wedding social media designers Mush Me Too. While the stunning bride radiated some serious goals with her emotional, yet alluring bridal reveal, the dapper groom wasn't too far behind in showcasing some banger Shaadi shenanigans with his boys in tow! P.S. Whilst we're talking about reeling in one's love story and persona through the 90-second glimpses, we absolutely love the trend of transition videos. Would you agree!?
