Melanie- an actress, and Neeraj- an investor, held their gorgeous South Indian wedding in the tropical location of Turks & Caicos. The couple chose their wedding to be in the exact venue and location where Neeraj had proposed to Melanie. From gorgeous wedding decor, to beautiful designer outfits – this couple had it all at their wedding.
Melanie held her private mehendi ceremony with just her close family and Neeraj by her side. The mehendi was done by the pool at the resort where the wedding party was staying. Simple and sweet, Melanie wore a pretty blue Ritu Kumar skirt, with a white t-shirt, beaded necklace and some hair accessories.
In the Bride’s Words: How They Met
Neeraj had asked me out on a date but I was a little hesitant. It hadn’t stopped him from asking me out many times though. Then, three years later, I just ran into him in New York and that’s where I fell for him hook, line and sinker. By the second date, we were quite sure we wanted to be together for the long term, and though he proposed much later, for me, I had found my ideal man.
The next day in the evening, the couple held a mehendi party here Melanie wore a beautiful Manish Arora lehenga, and Neeraj wore a simple nehru vest suit.
With Bollywood posters featuring the bride and groom themselves, the sangeet night was themed a ‘Bollywood Soiree’. Melanie and Neeraj both performed dances to Bollywood songs. Melanie wore a navy blue Manish Malhotra lehenga, while Neeraj looked handsome in a Shantanu & Nikhil sherwani.
The couple had a beautiful traditional South Indian wedding. Neeraj wore a gold/beige dhoti suit by Tarun Tahiliani, while Melanie looked stunning in a red silk Manish Malhotra lehenga. The bride accessorized her outfit with gold jewellery.
The bridesmaids wore beautiful pink and red sarees, while the groomsmen wore beige kurta pajamas with pink scarves.
The stunning mandap was decorated in tones of pink. The bright pink flowers looked beautiful against the light pink chiffon drapes; and the gold and white seating added an elegant touch. Pink umbrellas were provided for guests for shade from the sun.
The pink theme continued at the reception with table setting and decor. Melanie wore a pale pink Sabyasachi lehenga to this final event, and Neeraj wore a nehru suit by Shantanu & Nikhil.
