I’ve been here once, with my mother. It’s in a tiny home, full of cupboards and stairs. And enough mirrors and light to admire the beautiful sarees. Chinny Nanjappa stores treasures that she handpicks or creates while working with weavers across South India. I’m thinking of a red kanjeevaram for the wedding. Maybe.

I love Julie Kagti’s work. It’s lovely, the textures and colours and the raw appeal it has.
The wedding venue is Iskcon and Vrindavan sort of just fit in beautifully. Love the colors Radha wears. The decor could also try and recreate Vrindavan in an indoor setting. Simple, elegant and romantic is what I had in mind. How about putting petals in large rolled up badam leaves and handing it to people to give aashirwaad.
“One of these two events (Sangeet or Mehendi), you should wear a salwar kameez and one of them a nice ghagra choli types. Just to add variety to the ensemble! But if you get it nicely designed, then you can use the top with western outfits as well which will be of much more use to you in London. For mehendi, a nice deep bottle green? Reception, raani pink!! Am sure it will really suit you.”
