Yolo Entertainment sets a benchmark into destination wedding space with their most recent wedding conceptualised and executed in The Royal Marwar Land – Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
Before we get into the wedding details, let us share a prelude to this knot which holds a beautiful beginning!
#A2Z – Aashna to Zubin is an arranged marriage set up.
Zubin Mehta, son of Blossom & Nitin Mehta – born & brought up in Mumbai, owner of MECORDS India LTD., the largest Indian manufacturer of woven Tire-Reinforcing Technical Textiles, Industrial Fabrics & Specialty Fabrics while Aashna Varma daughter of Arun & Mini Varma is born & brought up in Delhi.
The couple met via family friends and it hit-it off from there.
Zubin and Aashna met a few times in Mumbai as well as in Delhi to learn that they were truly meant for each other. Their growing fondness for each other lead to the beautiful breathtaking roka for a select few close family members and friends at the Taj Lands End, Chambers Room followed by an extravagant celebration at the Taj Lands End Ballroom, the onset of the #A2Z celebrations.
The Proposal at Taj Exotica Maldives
Zubin, being more of a planner by nature between the both of them, formally proposed to Aashna , in none other than one of the most picturesque & uber romantic destinations of the world, Maldives, making it larger than life !!!
The groom planned a pre-wedding shoot in Maldives at the Taj Exotica, where in the gorgeous bride Aashna was proposed to on this private boat with champagne, flowers and The Ring ! – Yes , Aashna was surprised, what seemed like a pre wedding shoot in Maldives, actually turned out to be a beautifully planned proposal that lead into the shoot !
