No matter where you are in the world, planning a wedding for 600 guests is a logistical challenge, and on an island even more so! Meera and Prashant enlisted the services of three teams from India for their island celebrations: in charge of hospitality was Motwane Entertainment & Weddings (MEW), design and décor was The Wedding Design Company (WDC) while food was the responsibility by TKAC, a Delhi-based catering company. Providing invaluable insider knowledge and essential on-the-ground planning and organisation were local experts Ibiza Management.
As 600 guests arrived in Ibiza, each was met by a host and seamlessly whisked away to their luxurious hotel dwellings. Meera and Prashant had one very important request to Ibiza Management when it came to taking care of their family and friends – to make sure everyone felt at home. They wanted to ensure those who had preconceived notions of Ibiza as only a ‘party island’ would get to experience the true spirit and beauty of the island. “We wanted to show how wonderful Ibiza is!”
The bride was truly dazzling in a rich red and gold creation by top Indian couturier Abu Sandeep Jani Khosla, complete with gorgeous Jimmy Choos peeping out from below. Dripping in heirloom jewellery including uncut diamonds and pearls, Meera looked every bit the princess as she met her equally as dapper groom – who was dressed by up and coming Bombay designer Kunal Rawal – beneath the floral arches. Mehra Khola, India’s most prominent and talented make-up artist was also flown in for the event, though the bride’s natural beauty clearly shone through as she glowed beneath her traditional gown.
While Meera and Prashant were indeed the stars of the show, their bridal party were also done up to the nines, with bridesmaids also dressed by the same designer as the bride and the best men dressed in Avinash Punjabi, a top Bombay based tailor famed for bespoke menswear. Every guest was offered hair and make-up services for the event, and every which way you turned, there was breathtaking beauty – be it the stunning fresh flowers, the incredible couture, the beautiful bride or Ibiza’s spectacular coastline.
