A lot of you must have heard of Tarini Manchanda as the fashion and lifestyle influencer who is on the top of her IG game for multiple reasons like her cool fashion reels, her fashion sense and also her brand, ‘The Initial Studio’. But, today our focus ain’t on her achievements but in fact on her adorable yet sophisticated intimate home wedding to her long-time boyfriend Archit Chenoy. 

Scroll below to get all the deets from gorgeous bridal outfits to a sweet backyard setup about what went down at #TarKiShaadi.

Tarini Manchanda Gets Hitched to Her Longtime Boyfriend

Welcome Dinner To Kickstart The Wedding Festivities

Tarini and Archit had an intimate welcome dinner for their family members and friends who mean the world to them. For this occasion, to-be bride Tarini Manchanda looked ravishing in a pristine white net saree by designer Seema Gujral. While Tarini glowed in this saree, the to-be groom Archit Chenoy made a statement in a blue band gala outfit with a stylish drape. The function was intimate, fun and by the pictures, we can tell that it was a memorable affair. 

A Beautiful Sundowner Evening Party For The Nearest & Dearest Ones

As soon as the festive season got over, Tarini and Archit kickstarted their wedding functions with a grand sundowner evening party for their nearest and dearest ones. And by nearest and dearest we mean all the Delhi socialites like Mallika Dua, Rasna Bhasin, Shrey Soni among many others. For this party, Manchanda went with a drop-dead gorgeous multi-coloured lehenga with heavy embroidery by Aisha Rao and had her hair blown out. The influencer donned heavy jewellery to compliment her look. Tarini simply looked like a dream in this stupendous heavily embellished lehenga!

Intimate Backyard Wedding Where The Bride Wore Her Great-Grandmother's Saree

Tarini was no conventional bride and that is why she decided not to have a mehendi function and straightaway get to the wedding day. Ah, and even then she made it a point to stand out from all the other brides. For her D-day, Tarini Manchanda repurposed her red wedding saree and jewellery. The tomato red saree’s (which had been in the bride’s wardrobe for a decade) antique border was from her great-grandmother's time, the necklace from her nani’s and was restrung with bits of her mother’s jewellery. While her bridal red saree was a stunning piece, the head dupatta had excerpts of letters from Tarini’s grandparents; all embroidered by karigars who work with her.

Talking about her love for the colour red Tarini Manchanda said, "I’ve never known what kind of “bride” I’d be, so I just decided to be myself. Picking traditions that mean something to me, and being fortunate enough to drop ones that don’t. I am not one for heavy mehendi, chooda, a maangtikka or sindoor, but I do love a bridal red."

She further added, "The chiffon sari fabric was bought in Paris by my mother and it has been in my closet for over a decade now. I’ve always been drawn to that red. My mum who works in heritage conservation, sent it to artisans in Lucknow to get traditional Mukaish handwork done on it. Together with the silk of the border and the lightness of the fabric, it felt like liquid. It is something I could never find in a store even if I tried - that is what luxury means to me." 

"My head dupatta has excerpts of letters my grandparents have written to me through the years and tales of love I have grown up hearing. All embroidered by karigars who work with me at The Initial Studio," said fashion and lifestyle influencer Tarini Manchanda. 

Now talking about Kaleeras, Manchanda went with only one kaleera; a family heirloom from her great-grandaunt. Apparently, this family heirloom has been broken into bits and has been passed on to the first daughter who gets married in each family. The gorgeous bride also went with an old ring of the groom’s grandmother along with an antique gold bangle given to her by his sister Ayesha Chenoy as a part of the groom's family history.

The intimate wedding took place at Manchanda’s Delhi residence in front of her loved ones. Her entire backyard was decked up with the most pretty floral decoration

Clearly, the bride and the groom put a lot of their focus on small details such as their family heritage, their culture and traditions and things that deeply matter to them.

Signing Off With A Grand Reception Party

After their wedding took place, the evening was converted into a rager reception party where everyone let their hair loose and danced till their feet hurt. Tarini changed into a surreal eggshell white lehenga while the groom Archit donned a dapper green jacket and beige pants. We truly think that this was the perfect end to a small and intimate wedding where the couple not only got hitched in a dreamy ceremony but also got to enjoy after the ceremony took place.

We at ShaadiSaga wish the newlyweds a happy and prosperous wedding!

From The Bride 

"I am and always have been proud of my roots. I like that somehow each piece on me represented who I am. Most of my outfits came together last minute and very organically (much to my friends’ shock!) The earrings I picked up on my Mum’s dresser as I was getting ready for the wedding ceremony, the flowers in my hair we took from the table setting that morning. I am not one to over plan. I think there is beauty in spontaneity, and going with what feels natural to you at the moment - that is how I live, so it would be inauthentic for my wedding day to be any different. And for everything else, I had magician Doll You Up by S for my makeup and hair who I trusted blindly and I am so happy I did," said Tarini Manchanda.
