Vishal and Sameeksha just got hitched at Hotel Sheraton Hua Hin, Thailand in one of the most vibrant and colorful weddings we've seen! The hotel provided them with the perfect poolside area for a gorgeous backdrop as their ceremony took place. Set against the gorgeous Thailand sky and the waves crashing nearby, Hotel Sheraton Hua Hin has proved to be the perfect venue for all outdoor weddings!

Spectacular locations, breath-taking décor, and a flawlessly executed wedding in Thailand that exuded style, elegance and magnificence. The charming landscapes, splendid attractions and tropical beaches make Thailand a great wedding destination and also because of its fabled Thai hospitality, ease of arranging logistics and lush, picture-perfect

The weekend wedding festivities commenced with a traditional Thai welcome. They had a pipat band playing traditional Thai music and dancers were grooving to the tunes and 2 hostesses dressed in Thai attire welcoming and greeting the guests

Evening witnessed the Mehendi ceremony themed “Shaam – E – Mastaani’ where there were tons of activities arranged for the guest like Umbrella painting, nail art, flower jewelry making variety of live station food. The décor comprised of floral, vibrant colored handmade dream catchers and a massive dance floor. The bride and the groom entered in a Tonga Cycle which was followed by a family flash mob performance.

The glamorous Sangeet had a grand opening with the bride and groom entering with an entourage of their friends dancing. The celebrations started with the powerful Taiko drums followed by family performances.

This Victoria’s Secret model had a gorgeous beach wedding and the pictures will keep you swooning!

Congratulations to this happy couple – Shanina Shaik and Gregory “DJ Ruckus” Andrews who just got hitched! While Shahina is a Victoria’s Secret supermodel, Greg is an in-demand DJ and with their wedding pictures all I can say is that they make one hell-of-a stunning couple!

 

They tied the knot this weekend on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas and their wedding pictures will keep you swooning for days. Scroll down to have a look:

 

How they first met:

 

 

The duo first first met in 2015, when Shanina found herself stood up by her girlfriends during Coachella. “Just before I was going to leave, Greg noticed that I was alone and came over to speak with me,” she recalls.

“We had the most wonderful conversation.”

 

From that moment on, she knew he was ‘the one’. Greg was sure, too, and they dated for just eight months before he finally popped the question!

 

The proposal story:

 

 

 

To propose, Greg planned a tropical Christmas vacation with Shanina and her mother at his family’s place in the Bahamas. The day after the holiday, he organized an impromptu beach trip with Shanina and his cousin—or so she thought! Greg’s cousin, of course, never showed up, and he instead popped the question. “He proposed with not one but two Lorraine Schwartz rings,” she says. “He asked me to choose my favorite ring, and, unfortunately, I could only choose one!”

 

 

The wedding:

 

 

After an engagement like that, it’s no surprise that Shanina and Greg decided to marry in the Bahamas. In fact, they decided to say “I do” on the exact stretch of sand where they got engaged.

 

 

 

 

I’ve always dreamt of marrying on the beach,” says the bride, “Our wedding reflected our personal style (simple and elegant) with the added touch of a bohemian vibe as well”.

 

The wedding gown:

 

Ralph and Russo had offered to make Shahina’s wedding gown, “ I wanted it to be simple, bohemian, and elegant. I love a boho style and I wanted to give it a little twist by incorporating lace.” The result? A gorgeous off-the-shoulder creation featuring delicate lace and sheer fabric!

 

 

The groom looked dapper in a classic tux by Tom Ford.

 

He gave his groomsmen – a bottle of Don Julio before they walked down the aisle. *so cool*

 

 

The Guests:

 

 

For guests, the dress code called for neutrals that complemented the colors in the wedding scheme. “We weren’t sure if our guests would go with the theme and tones that we recommended, but we were so pleased when we saw the result,” says Shanina. “Everyone looked so dapper!”

 

 

…. And how cool is this shot of the bride with her bridesmaids?

 

 

The reception:

 

There were fairy lights and lanterns setting the right mood while a Bahamian band led the guests onto the dance floor after dinner. “As a surprise for our guests, we got DJ Rev Run to perform while everyone danced throughout the night.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shahina used this as her cue to change into her second gown of the night: a custom-made look by her friend Michael Costello. “I wanted to wear a dress that was very flowy and easy to move in. I knew we were going to dance the night away” she said.

 

 

With the pictures coming to an end, I am still going to take some time to get over this absolutely beautiful wedding!

Ofcourse Kit Harington aka ‘Jon Snow”s wedding invites were Game Of Thrones themed!

Kit Harington and Rose Leslie – Jon Snow and Ygritte from Game of Thrones, are all set to tie take their wedding vows soon! Though an official wedding date has not been announced, their wedding invites are quite the talk of the town!  

 

 

According to reports, the 200 wedding invitations feature Kit Harington’s face in a very special way. Actually, a series of Game Of Thrones stamps were issued by the Royal Mail earlier – one of UK’s premier mail delivery systems. Those stamps featured faces of Mother of Dragons Daenerys Targaryen, Jon Snow, Tyrion Lannister amongst the other star cast and it’s believed that’s the stamp this GOT couple has used on their wedding invites!

 

 

The guests were, thrilled to see this odd/awesome gesture from Kit on their envelopes. It’s also because the invites are a tribute to the show both the actors had the chance of gracing.

 

 

It was not very long back when Leslie was quoted saying, “I am trying to fit in my wedding… I haven’t tackled it. There’s just too much to do.” Well, Leslie at least sending the invitations out is an important job done.
 

If you too are a GOT die hard fan like me, then you must be wondering if the Game of Thrones theme will be extend to dress code too? This is what Kit has to say about it, “There is absolutely no chance of me convincing (Rose) of that.’

 

 

Well, I have got a feeling that there might be other Game of Thrones references popped in their wedding nuptials, if not the dress code! It’s Jon Snow marrying his lady love after all!

 

P.S: The limited edition stamps were released by the British postal service earlier this year, and can still be purchased from Royal Mail if you’re a diehard fan of the series, and… stamps.
