All Aboard! Grand Nautical Wedding Affair
The first of its kind in the world of indian weddings, the couple and 1,500 guests boarded the Costa Fascinosa cruise liner in Spain, Barcelona for a four day, high seas wedding affair on the French and Italian coasts of Marseilles, Cannes and Savona.
“It’s unbelievable already,” said Adel after entering the lavish cruise ship with his wedding party, “I think we’re gonna be destroyed after three days!”
“So much positive energy I am so excited,” said bride Sana to the onboard camera crew, “This journey is gonna be amazing with you Adel!”
The groom’s father, Rizwan Sajan, is a billionaire chairman of the Danube group.
“Words cannot express my happiness as I see my only son Adel getting married and to celebrate this joyous occasion, we would like to share our happiness by creating the biggest wedding on an international cruise liner,” the father announced to the public.
“Sameera and I are eager to welcome the lovely Sana in our family and look forward to extending a long and joyful relationship with the entire Khan family.”
The cruise ship was decorated top to bottom in elaborate fashion by Wedniksha. Each function was handled with supreme style and upmost care. Professionals hired to work the cruise’s festivities included dancers modeled in glamorous costumes, 75 chefs and 15 photographers.
Design details like 1,000 fresh Holland tulips and 20,000 red roses imported from Ecuador made this cruise liner the fairytale place to be!
Renowned stylist, Neeta Lulla, created an off-the-shoulder blue lehenga for the bride’s wedding ceremony held on the sunlight top deck of the ship.
Colorful floral embellishments were added to her eye-catching outfit. The groom Adel complimented his love’s look with a vibrant blue and green sherwani.
Retro Royal Entrance & Welcome Dinner
In the evening the couple descended, hand-in-hand, Adel leading Sana ever so gracefully down to the stage. The bride and groom sparkled in their 1920’s inspired looks; beauty queen Sana with a dazzling flapper dress and matching gold jewelry.
