The Art Of Perfect Planning

Let Chakra Events curate the wedding of your dreams at home or abroad

Booking a professional event planning team to manage and deliver the wedding of your dreams is the best investment you’ll make. Handing over the responsibility to experts means that you and your family can enjoy the festivities, guaranteeing a stress-free celebration. This is what motivates Chakra Events; a luxury events and catering provider who have been curating five-star weddings all over the world since 2011.

Their goal is to create a flawless occasion where every detail is taken care of. Arjun Varma, CEO of The Chakra Group explains how their planning experience can help you: “Booking an event management company like Chakra Events ensures seamless coordination and attention to detail. Unlike a single wedding planner, we offer a team of experts specialising in various aspects of event planning, from venue selection to vendor management.”

There are many aspects of wedding planning that take place behind-the-scenes that couples may never know about, as Vikalp Chhibber, Head of Operations reveals: “Beyond the obvious tasks, we handle intricate details such as contingency planning, timeline management, and guest experience. From coordinating transportation for guests to ensuring adequate restroom facilities, we anticipate and address every possible scenario to ensure a smooth and stress-free wedding day.”

Luxury on a budget

Every couple deserves to have a dream wedding; whatever their budget. Chakra is committed to making luxury weddings accessible for all. Arjun explains: “We recommend that couples pick one or two aspects of their wedding that mean the most to them, such as the venue and the food and to focus the budget on these areas. Not to mention if you work with us, our creative solutions and negotiation skills enable couples to achieve their dream wedding without compromising on luxury.”

Memorable menus

Chakra’s reputation for five-star dining proceeds them. Whatever the cuisine you’re after; their expert chefs are purveyors of fine dining from around the world. Their menus include regional Indian favourites to Lebanese and Thai featuring everything from delectable canapes to main courses and desserts. They can also serve bespoke fusion menus to reflect the couple’s background and cultural requirements.

The personal touch

No couple wants the same as someone else. Chakra are experts in creating a personalised experience so even if your guests have a busy wedding season; yours is the one that will stand out. Arjun says: “We offer numerous options for personalising weddings, including bespoke décor, custom signage, thematic colour schemes, and unique entertainment choices. From monogrammed details to curated playlists, we tailor every aspect of the event to reflect the couple’s personality and style. We do this by taking the time to get to know our clients, understand exactly what their needs are and tailor each event to their preferences. By infusing personalised touches and innovative ideas, we craft an unforgettable wedding experience.”

Chakra Events Wedding Diaries: Tenerife

Destination weddings have now become the norm with many couples choosing a more intimate, smaller affair abroad instead of a large-scale celebration at home. Guests love the opportunity to enjoy a holiday of their own while couples may want to honeymoon locally too.

We recently planned a special wedding for a couple who wanted to combine the colours and heritage of Rajasthan with the laid-back beach setting of Hawaii; and we helped them achieve this in Tenerife.

Each function had a specific theme: there was also a formal black-tie evening reception, and a Spanish-themed sangeet night and welcome dinner. These carefully curated themes added a special touch to the wedding celebrations and reflected the couple’s diverse backgrounds and preferences.

Memorable aspects included a magical baraat with a train from the venue, an after-party in a built-in nightclub, poolside games and DJ sessions, and various surprising elements within the resort that were all made possible due to the existing resort facilities. These unique and unexpected experiences added an extra layer of excitement and enjoyment to the wedding celebrations, creating lasting memories for the couple and their guests.

And of course, the food was a key part of the affair. Dishes varied from European Spanish and Mediterranean for the welcome dinner to Rajasthani Gujarati for the Mehndi, Indian Thai Lebanese for the evening reception, and classical Mughlai Indian for the evening cocktail reception. These diverse culinary offerings catered to the varied tastes of the guests and added to the overall experience of the wedding celebrations.

The venue was perfect and that’s one of our strengths at Chakra. We work with the best wedding venues in the world; so, don’t worry if you don’t know where you’d like to get married. We know the perfect place just for you.
