Glam NRI Tamil Wedding In Chennai With Timeless Bridal Portraits

BY Sakshi | 08 Jul, 2024 | 309 views | 4 min read

Planning a wedding in India while sitting abroad is no easy feat. While the WedMeGood App of course comes to the rescue of such couples, we love it when they are hands on and do not compromise on vendors and quality. Here is another couple who planned their wedding to perfection while being in two separate time zones themselves! Swastikka and Varun's Chennai wedding is beautiful- with the bridal portraits oozing glam. Shishir Ramnath added magic to these captures on his lens!

Meet Swastikka and Varun

We met on a matrimony website, but the process was far from arranged- it felt more like a love marriage!






From The Bride:

Our wedding took place on February 15, 2024. Planning a wedding with one of us in the U.S. and the other in the U.K. was a Herculean task. Coordinating with vendors in India while dealing with the time zone differences was incredibly challenging. Since I’ve been living abroad for several years, I didn’t want to lose touch with my roots. Hence, we wanted a wedding that incorporated all the customs and cultures of a proper Hindu wedding. We made sure even the smallest traditions were observed and were excited to see them all executed. Although my family is Telugu, since Varun is Tamil and I am also closer to Tamil Nadu, having been born and brought up there, we wanted a typical Tamil wedding. For the reception and other events, we wanted a more westernized style. We’re glad we managed to bring our vision to life as closely as we had imagined.

About The WedMeGood App

WedMeGood is an incredibly handy app, especially for couples like us who don't live in the location where the wedding is taking place. It has made our lives so much easier by providing a plethora of ideas and facilitating seamless coordination with vendors. Being able to see what's happening with other weddings has been invaluable. Overall, it's an incredibly useful and indispensable tool for wedding planning.

Vendor Reviews

Photography: Shishir Ramnath

Our wedding photographer, deserves immense thanks for his exceptional work. He made us feel comfortable, almost like a fly on the wall, capturing emotions we didn't know we could express. His editing is perfect, beautifully capturing every moment and making our wedding experience truly special. His team was also professional, nice, fun to work with, and incredibly talented.

Venue: M Weddings and Conventions

The venue was spacious and bright, and a big shout out to the catering team for their exceptional service. Despite initial concerns about bringing outside vendors, their catering surpassed expectations. The caterers were professional, uniformed, and received compliments from every guest. The in-house decorator was supportive and even accommodated last-minute changes. The entire venue and staff were top-notch, with comfortable bride and groom's rooms. The modern, stylish location offered ample parking, making it one of the best venues in Chennai.

Makeup Artist: Rachel Stylesmith

Our bridal makeup artist, is a professional and one of the best-known in Chennai. She skillfully brought my vision to life, giving me a retro look for the reception and a traditional, bright look for the wedding. I'm thrilled with her work.

Wedding Planning: Sangeet Tales

They managed our Sangeet + Cocktail event. They had an excellent team hosting, provided a DJ, and assisted with the bar setup, creating a lively evening decor.

Mehendi Artist: Dots and Curves

Their talent was exceptional. They effortlessly crafted intricate designs, often just by glancing at pictures for a minute. Their speed was remarkable too. Despite having a group of 30 guests, they efficiently completed each member's mehendi in a short period.
