Chakra Events Prepares Indian Wedding Banquet for 250 Guests

Posted on 22nd March 2017

Happy couple at the Valia wedding

The wedding of a daughter is a huge event in any father’s life. In the Indian tradition, it is also the father of the bride’s responsibility to organise and pay for the ceremony. When international textile merchant Bharat Valia organised his daughter Anasha’s wedding celebration in Italy, he needed everything to be perfect for the 250 guests. That’s why he brought Chakra Events in to cater the wedding banquet.

The Perfect Location

Mr Valia chose the perfect romantic location for his daughter’s wedding. The Villa Aminta in the pretty lakeside town of Stresa in northern Italy. The hotel has beautiful views over the Gulf of Borromeo and Lago Maggiore. Mr Valia fell in love with the venue when he and his wife stayed there six years previously. They had intended to stay only one night, but the place enchanted them so much that they stayed for three.

The Perfect Banquet

The challenge of catering for 250 wedding guests is making sure that every single dish is of the highest quality. With this in mind, Mr Valia brought in Chakra Events. Our events team are renowned for putting on luxury events anywhere in the world that you need them. Our artisan chefs have an unparalleled knowledge of world cuisine. We were able to create a wedding feast that exceeded Mr Valia’s high standards.

The Perfect Outfits

The clothes worn by the happy couple and their immediate families were specially designed by an Indian tailor. Mr Valia sent the designer pictures of the lake and climate information to make sure that the guests of honour would not be too hot in their new outfits.

The Perfect Day

Or three days in this case. Indian weddings are a long celebration. On the Tuesday, the guests were treated to an initial welcome celebration in a specially created pavilion overlooking the lake. On the Wednesday, the women had their hands painted with traditional tattoos before everyone was entertained by Bollywood singers. The ceremony itself was held on the Thursday, presided over by a Hindu priest who was flown in specially for the event.

All the team here at Chakra wish Anasha and her new husband all the very best of future happiness together.
