Leaf through the photographs of a rather cool wedding of Opal and Ollie and you will catch yourself secretly wishing to have a wedding like that. There’s an element of breezy and laidback in this wedding that resonates so well with the very vibe of Goa. The wedding destination that you choose for your wedding speaks so much about you too and seeing the pictures it is rather apparent why Opal and Ollie would have chosen Goa.
The venue they chose for their intimate wedding (guest list: 16, including bride and groom) is a understatedly luxurious Shunya Kaju Varo in Ashwem Goa. We love this property as much and is one of our pick of Villa Wedding Venues in Goa.
The two families traveled together for a month and then ended their trip in Goa where Opal and Ollie got married. The dressing room was a rustic cottage where the bride, her sister, mother, sister-in-law, mother-in-law got ready while having champagne and reminiscing their travel tales. We love how everybody was bare feet and the otherwise quintessential Jimmy Choo’s were nowhere in sight.
Opal chose a minimalistic ivory lacy dress with henna on feet and delicate leaf shaped maang tikka, her sweet way of incorporating and romancing with a little bit of India. They even had Sitar player and a classical singer perform while the wedding ceremony took place. One can only imagine how ethereal the ambiance would have been.
Then there are immensely heartwarming moments of first look and speeches and happy tears and nostalgia captured so beautifully by Richa Kashelkar that we find ourselves revisiting the photographs.
And guess what they had rented Activa for their ‘just married’ ride. We wonder if there’s a cooler couple out there. Scroll through the pictures and we promise you would fall in for this endearing wedding.
We are guessing you went on a little daydream trip with these photographs and why won’t you when the wedding is as enchanting as this. In case you too would like to have an intimate villa wedding in Goa, we would be rather happy to be your partners and plan it with you.
