When one envisions a wedding against a Taj property backdrop, one fantasizes jaw-dropping locales, an extra-ordinary culinary experience, immaculate detailing and bespoke wardrobes. Indian hospitality brand Taj has been synonymous with grandeur and extra-ordinary service; and finally it’s launched the Taj Wedding Studio. Offering a plethora of wedding services coupled with the expertise of the best of the wedding industry, the Taj Wedding Studio has been conceptualised to provide guests with an enhanced and exclusive experience.
In an exciting collaboration between the Taj Wedding Studio & Tarun Tahiliani, the renowned designer has curated a lehenga inspired by the dome of Mumbai’s Taj Mahal Palace. The hand-painted, printed lehenga uses lotuses and classic ojee jaals while its printed Tajness-inspired cape drape, sketched with illustrations of the dome and lightly dusted with Swarovski crystals, gota flowers and mirrors, paid tribute to the ‘new voice of tradition’.
In addition to Tarun Tahiliani, India’s leading bridal media brand WeddingSutra, Italian luxury house Ermenegildo Zegna, and Zoya, the luxury jewellery brand from the house of Tata will be offering their bespoke bridal experience for the first time at the Taj Wedding Studio.
Commenting on the launch of the Taj Wedding Studio, Mr. Chinmai Sharma, Chief Revenue Officer, Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris, said, “Taj Hotels has always been a pioneer in hosting memorable weddings. The launch of the Taj Wedding Studio as the ultimate destination to create unforgettable wedding experiences will offer our guests exclusive access to experts in the industry and a variety of services that are designed to address all their wishes for their big day. In doing so, the Taj Wedding Studio will address the growing need for customization of weddings and live up to the Taj promise of inspiring creativity in every aspect of celebration.”
