Percept Weddings recreates allure and elegance for the Wedding of the Year in Montreux, Switzerland


New Delhi, June 14, 2018:  Percept Weddings, the Strategic Business Unit of Percept ICE,
conceptualized and executed one of the grandest weddings of the year for
Tanya Ganwani, the granddaughter of Lal Ganwani, founder of Dubai-based
Lals Group with London-based Rajiv Varma. Tanya, Founder and CEO of Burn
Activewear, is the daughter of real-estate moghul Monica and Jayant
Ganwani and lives between Dubai and London. Rajiv’s parents, Shobha and
Moni Varma are the owners of Veetee Foods, one of the largest rice
companies in the United Kingdom. The grand wedding was held in Montreux,
a jewel in the Swiss Riviera, and saw over 400 distinguished VIP guests
fly in from all corners of the globe to attend four days of gala

The build up to this gala wedding commenced with an elegant and
beautiful Roka Ceremony which was a small affair that only witnessed
close family and friends gather at the Emirates Hill residence to bless
the soon to be married couple. The intimate ceremony saw modern and
traditional decor elements that added to the beauty of the gorgeous
engagement celebration. While the poolside was decorated with marquee
lights that read #TanysRaj and fresh petals, the rest of the area was
decked in floral stings, picturesque floral arrangements, and even a
concept bar.

The Wedding Celebrations in June 2018 were spread over a 4 day weekend
across the palatial Fairmont Le Montreux Palace and Grand Hotel Suisse
Majestic, and saw over 400 guests fly in from London, Dubai, India and
all quarters of the globe. Prominent VIP Guests included Rita and Sunil
Vaswani, Robert Vadra, Kamal Fabiani, Rajiv and Kavita Singh, Pawan and
Aneisha Munjal, Sandeep and Namto Chaddha, Pernia Qureshi, Kanika and
Rishi Sanger, Sherina Dalamal and Kajal Fabiani. The clothes were
designed by Dalamal, couturier Suneet Verma, Abu Jani, Sandeep Khosla
and Pakistani designer Faraz Manan. Celebrities and fashionistas were
spotted in creations by Manish Malhotra and Suneet Verma. The gala
festivities included a Welcome Dinner, Mehendi Ceremony, Sangeet,
Baraat, Pheras and a grand Reception Dinner.

The gala Welcome Dinner saw the popular Music group ‘The Fellas’ serve
up the perfect blend of soul, funk and hip hop thump, and saw all the
guests shake a leg as they grooved to silky, soulful vocals and a vast
playlist of classic and contemporary numbers.

The Mehendi ceremony was designed along a fun and colourful European
style Carnival theme. With snow-laden peaks serving in the background
and beautiful palm trees in front, the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace
served as the perfect venue for this stunning ceremony. Vibrant flowers
and vivacious carnival themed decor were used to bring the entire venue
to life, with the snow-capped mountains posing as the perfect backdrop
to the effervescent musical setup.

This was followed by a gala Sangeet which saw the duo host a memorable
bash with talented artists Sukhbir Singh belting out his most popular
numbers, the incredibly talented Asian British Music Dhol artists whip
up a musical storm, followed by popular Indian rapper and music composer
Badshah filling the Swiss night air with music, mirth and dance.

The Baraat was an action packed, high-octane procession along the
picturesque country lakeside. The Groom was transported in a decorated
vintage car with a DJ Truck and Dhol players building up the tempo. The
Grand Wedding was held at the outdoor venue of the Fairmont Le Montreux
Palace with the entire palatial hotel being decorated in beautiful
shades of pink and white. An aesthetic mandap with pink drapes and fresh
flowers stood on the massive green lawns overlooking the Swiss Alps and
the tranquil lake, even as two large elephants created using pink blooms
made for memorable and auspicious decor elements. Flowers in ornate
vases dotted the entire venue furthering the charm of the occasion. The
spectacular Wedding Reception saw the largest live band in Europe ‘Paris
Select’ perform offbeat, breathtaking numbers by over 30 international
artists on stage

The catering for this massive wedding was partly undertaken by the
Indian Chefs Team from Fairmont, Jaipur, offering the best of both
European and Indian cuisines, even as an Executive Chef from Fairmont
Jaipur flew down to Montreux to curate an exclusive delightful Indian
spread that comprised malpuas with rabri, samosas, cholas, parathas and
masala milk. Speciality Bars presenting exotic signature cocktails
created by Liquid Chefs, a specialist bar team flown in from the UK,
were a big hit with the guests.
