Aishya and Rohan’s Sangeet (Part 2 of 4)

November 20th, 2015

Our next day event took place at the Chart House in Cardiff. Our Aishya and Rohan opted for a restaurant buyout and wanted to put small tents on the beach for mehndi. When we did the initial walk through, our idea was to have the guests be able to flow indoor and outdoor. After inquiring about the possibility of using the parking lot for that purpose the request was granted and the event plans started coming together. The bride had always expressed the fact she did not have a clear vision about her Sangeet, except for the fact she wanted a bohemian, beach chic vibe. One amazing thing about Cardiff is that the beach is relatively quiet and the noise ordinance does not come into effect until 1 am, which worked out great in our case. The tent frame went up the night before and was then decorated with Raj Tents liners, chandeliers and drapes all through the night.  The carpet was laid in the morning with furniture and props arriving around 12 pm for 4:30 pm arrival time. Smaller tents were installed on the beach with jute rugs and white lounge furniture accented with aqua blue pillows. Our inspiration for the main tent was shades of blue and white. The bar inside the tent along with the DJ booth and dance floor had a water design in blue to pay homage to the beautiful ocean. Flowers were on the minimal side with emphasis on dozens of candles in varying heights, sizes and shapes, all in whites and blues. Nikki and Madiha had hand selected pieces of furniture in white and silver from Hire Elegance and the sofas and chairs were accented with printed and textured pillows in blue. The client had special beach bags made as favors that were stuffed with pashmina shawls, sandals and bangles as favors for ladies. Each item was personalized with the couple’s name and guests were thrilled to receive these takeaways! The guests arrived at 4:30 with a lot of ladies going to the smaller tents for mehndi, while other guests enjoyed the drinks and passed hors d'oeuvres. The sunset was absolutely gorgeous on the beach with enchanting live music being played. The couple arrived and was taken aback by the transformation.  The photographer was present to capture their shots along with family and guest shots. The ambiance was festive, elegant and fun. A special Bollywood dance troupe came from LA to perform along with another dance troupe from San Diego. The client wanted to offer an array of sea food, pasta stations as well as prime rib and salad stations, which were thoroughly enjoyed by all guests. There was a lot of dancing and entertainment, and the evening came to an end past midnight but we were already thinking about the ceremony next day at client’s residence...
