The wedding of Honey Gupta, daughter of renowned fashion designer Shilpi Gupta, and Aditya Pillai, a South Indian residing in London, epitomized a harmonious blend of North and South Indian traditions. Born in Delhi and currently residing in London, Honey brought elements of North Indian culture to the celebration, while Aditya’s South Indian heritage added depth and richness to the festivities. Their union symbolized the fusion of two distinct traditions, reflecting the diversity and unity within Indian culture. This multicultural love story, originating in London, traversed geographical and cultural boundaries, culminating in a grand celebration at Palazzo Versace Dubai from the 26th to the 28th of November. 



Inspired by the charm of Italy and the iconic fashion house Dolce & Gabbana, the Dolce Vita Welcome Lunch was a culinary masterpiece. Hostesses adorned in Italian Dolce Vita dresses welcomed the guests, offering Limoncello in charming bottles presented on a stylish Italian display. This refreshing drink paved the way for a sensory journey through the lush greens, vibrant lemons, and an exquisite bar setup.

Overlooking the central pool, two talented Italian musicians enchanted the gathering with their soulful tunes, adding a melodic touch to the evening. The culinary experience was also a gastronomic journey that transcended boundaries, thanks to the collaboration with Le Chaat Factory, a renowned catering team flown in from India and the chefs at Palazzo Versace. The food display was a work of art, complemented by exquisite Italian sculptures, charming tables, and a picturesque gazebo reminiscent of the enchanting Italian gardens.



The opulent saga continued with the Sringaar Teeka High-Tea, a celebration of tradition and elegance set against the breathtaking backdrop of Palazzo Versace’s Mosaico Terrace.

The mandapam, surrounded by water on all sides, featured steps leading to a surreal setting adorned with pink lotus flowers and hanging jasmines, creating an idyllic ambiance.

Traditional Nadaswaram performers filled the air with their melodious tunes as the bride and groom, accompanied by chenda melam drummers, embarked on their wedding ceremony. The kathakali dancers then graced the stage, infusing the event with cultural richness.



In the evening, the pheras commenced, marking the pinnacle of the celebration. The groom, Aditya, led a grand royal baraat procession, complete with a vintage car, drummers, and a majestic band.
