A beautiful intimate wedding with the closest of family and friends in a stunning location; this was the wedding vision that became reality for Arpika and Pavan. Taking place at the gorgeous Ritz Carlton, Abama hotel in Tenerife, Spain, it’s hard not to fall in love with the palm trees, blue skies, warm weather, and of course being next to the Atlantic Ocean. It is no surprise that this was the perfect location for their big day.
The Bride & Groom
We wanted to have a small intimate wedding, where we only took up one weekend of people’s time, as opposed to multiple summer weekends (which we both personally hated). We wanted it to be about our closest friends and family getting to know each other, complete relaxation, making life long memories and lasting friendships with eachother’s family/friends. We are both fairly laid back individuals and wanted the whole event to reflect that, and that is what Tenerife allowed us to do.
Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the mandap was elegantly decorated with gorgeous yellow, pink and white flowers. The bride wore a beautiful lehenga from UK based My Trousseau.
Pavan and Arpika approached us about filming their amazing 3-day Hindu wedding at the Ritz Carlton Abama in Tenerife and we immediately knew that we wanted to play our part in their beautiful celebrations. We love filming destination weddings and even more so when they take place in such a stunning location.
It all kicked off with a welcoming party on the day we arrived and continued the following day with the couple’s Vidhi ceremonies and Mehndi in the evening.
Day 3 saw the culmination of this gorgeous wedding with a traditional Hindu ceremony conducted by their priest Milambhai, followed by a wedding reception and beach party that couldn’t have been more entertaining and perfect. Their guests were treated to Spanish food, fire dancers and even a laser show and partied the night away until the small hours of the morning.
