Aren’t weddings dreamy? Of course, every wedding has its own charm. But some weddings stay in our hearts and minds forever. One such phenomenal wedding was of Sonam Kapoor and Anand Ahuja. We obviously expected it to be a grand affair. We also knew it would be a starry night that the world would never forget. But what went into putting together this extravaganza? We got an opportunity to speak to their wedding planners, Wedniksha. We absolutely loved the way they organised the wedding on such short notice. And they gave us the deets on the wedding. So let’s get right to it.
Who Is Wedniksha?
These wedding planners are a brand under Wizcraft, India’s leading communication and entertainment company and is run by Bhavnesh Sawhney and Farid Khan. They have planned and executed many extravagant weddings in the country internationally as well.
What Was The Brief Given To Them By The Two Families?
Wednishka was given the freedom to take many decisions in planning the wedding. The brief was pretty clear. Both the families wanted the wedding to be minimalistic. They wanted a very simple wedding that made the guests feel at home. Whether it was the food or entertainment, all of it was simple yet elegant. They wanted it to have a warm home-coming vibe. It was a very intimate affair according to Bhavnesh.
How Long Did They Take To Plan The Wedding?

The key aspect was definitely hospitality. The personalisation and making sure that all the celebrity guests were hosted well. Since most guests were celebrities and close family friends, the most importance was given to making them feel at home.
