After three years of being engaged to the man of her dreams, Dhiraj, Krishma finally tied the knot in a scenic Thailand destination wedding. The couple has known each other for 7 years though! “It was an instant connection when we met in 2015 in Borneo. We spent time in Singapore and Sydney and have loved getting to build such a deep connection over 7 years together,” says Krishma.
Being based in Australia and due to the ongoing travel restrictions, the couple planned their wedding 100% virtually from Sydney. The entire festivities were planned in under 10 weeks with their planner Pink Palki. “We’re finally happily married after so many years with a strong foundation making it through so much together. I feel our story has a happy ending and can serve as an inspiration for other people (a bit delayed but very very happy),” says Krishma.
Initially planning a big fat Indian wedding, the couple scaled the things down to an intimate 120 people wedding and also changed the destinations (originally meant to be in Phu Quoc Vietnam), they made the decision to move the wedding to Phuket, Thailand – “and it was the best decision we made,” says the happy bride.
With a flawlessly curated trousseau collection, Krishma chose her outfits from the best Indian ethnic wear designer like Sabyasachi, Manish Malhotra, Arpita Mehta, Suneet Varma, Gaurav Gupta, etc. Talking about her ensemble choices, Krishma said, “I wanted to really create a vibe for every single function and then compliment it with my dream look! We left no stone unturned with decor, custom mixologists, git hampers – you name it! We just wanted guests to have the best time. You can kind of get a feel of our themes through the hints in our invitation, which we then brought to life entirely at scale at each event.” Also, adding, Krishma praised her wedding vendors, “We literally had an amazing team of people who really helped us pull all of this off! It was an absolute dream!”.
