This wedding went viral on social media, and for all the right reasons! Probably one of the first intimate yet grand destination weddings to happen post the pandemic, Gopalika Virmani and Dhruv Gurwara's wedding last November set new goals for weddings in the time of Corona. The Delhi-based couple had zeroed in on Lake Como for their April 2020 wedding, but ended up having their wedding at The Oberoi Amarvilas in Agra. They had only 50 guests in attendance, but the wedding was a stylish one with bridal looks that we absolutely adore! The wedding happened with the Taj Mahal serving as a backdrop to their 'I Do's'
Dhruv Gurwara is the creative director of Bridal Asia, while Gopalika is a fashion director and stylist, who crossed paths professionally and cupid struck. The couple dated for a year before putting a ring on it last November, and eventually tying the knot in the same month this year. They were keen on a destination wedding, but COVID wrecked havoc with their lake Como plans- the bookings were made and invites had already been sent out. They finally had their Agra wedding surrounded by close family & friends to share their joy, and the ceremonies began with mehendi, with bright colourful hues that exudes a feeling of love, happiness and a whole lot of fun!
The Mehendi- Sangeet
What really caught our attention was the Mehendi look of the bride, which was in that gorgeous multi-hued Chevron Sabyasachi lehenga. We love how she styled it effortlessly, and looked stunning! Easily one of our fave bridal mehendi looks off late!
Corona played spoilsport, but this couple found a way to celebrate their love, and how! The wedding was a small one, but highly personalised. The baraat was on a golf cart, the pheras were a poignant ceremony amidst the 62 fountains of the hotel’s Charbagh. Hari & Sukhmani performed, and of course, all this with the backdrop of the majestic monument of love!
