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 had been in a relationship 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 – in 10 weeks to be exact! They hired wedding planner Pink Palki to help them with organizing everything. “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),” she adds.
Initially supposed to be a big fat Indian wedding, the couple had to scale things down to an intimate 120-people wedding (owing to the pandemic!) and also changed the destination to Phuket, Thailand – “and it was the best decision we made,” says the happy bride. Previously, they were supposed to get married in Phu Quoc Vietnam.
With a flawlessly curated trousseau collection, Krishma chose her outfits from the best Indian ethnic wear designers 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, gift 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.” Further, Krishma was full of praises for 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!”.
