Picture this: soft spring sun slowly sets, and with a romantic song in the background, a gorgeous bride walks down the aisle to meet the love of her life; the couple shares their intimate, meaningful vows, witnessed by family and the closest of friends, all doused in the essence of their wedding bliss. Yep, that sums up the private albeit whimsical wedding of Bollywood singer Benny Dayal and model-actress Catherine Thangam, marking the end of 6 years of long distance! Doodle Studio Wed-Deography created a cinematic masterpiece that captured every special moment, and included chronicles from their Moroccan-themed Mehendi & Sangeet, hosted at the rustic Temple Tree Leisure in Bangalore. Catherine and Benny welcomed their guests with “Marhabas” into a royal ambience with tents and drapes in rich colors like gold, midnight blue, purple, and red. The ceremony was a blend of Hindu and Catholic rituals, with the mandap done up aesthetically in ochre yellow and tawny drapes, finished with floral detailing. In keeping with the muted color palette, Catherine chose a soft pink tulle Sabyasachi sari with floral thread work and exquisite beading. Her bridesmaids were dressed in a quintessential white-and-gold Kerala sari. Flawless makeup by Sabrina Suhail gave Catherine’s cheeks a subtle flush, and a peachy glow overall. Benny's outfit complemented Catherine’s, but he kept it simple in a traditional Mundu with zari work, teamed with a white kurta. The wedding was attended by music prodigy AR Rahman, Vishal Dadlani, Neeti Mohan, Mika Singh and a host of other celebrities. Planned by Divya Vithika Wedding Planners and photographed by Sephi Bergerson Photography, touching speeches and spectacular fireworks made for ideal finishing touches to the three-day affair.
