Prabhav Rakhra & Anandita Khanijaon


19th November 2018 

JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa 



In a dreamy celebration overlooking the Andaman Sea, Prabhav Rakhra and Anandita Khanijaon tied the knot during sunset with their friends and family from abroad. Every event during their three-day celebration featured a unique theme, including an all-white seaside welcome dinner and a New York-inspired sangeet with drinks based on the couple’s life in the Big Apple. Reminiscing on her fairy-tale wedding, Anandita lets us in on all the exciting details.


Why did you choose Thailand as your wedding destination?

“Because we both wanted a beach wedding, and Thailand has some of the most beautiful beaches.”


Why did you opt for this specific hotel?

“JW Marriott Khao Lak Resort & Spa has a sprawling secluded beach with pristine white sand and many venue options.  I also loved that the marquee hall could be decorated from scratch, so we weren’t restricted creatively. Another amazing bonus was having rooms with access to one of Southeast Asia’s largest resort pools, so many of our guests, who travelled more than 24 hours, could relax while celebrating with us.”


What was your favourite event and why?

“The mehendi. We wanted to try something a little different and take advantage of the beautiful sand and ocean, so we set up a rain dance floor right by the beach. We were a little nervous about no one wanting to get wet, but it turned out to be one of the highlights. Everyone had a blast!”


What fashion designer did you wear and why?

“My wedding outfit was a Sabyasachi red lehenga. I knew I wanted to wear red, and I loved it as soon as I saw it.”


Where did you find your jewellery?

“A few pieces were custom-made by my friend and jewellery designer, Monisha Gurbani, whose family deals in diamonds. Everything else I got from India, including my favourites from the 'Pinkcity' collection by Anita Dongre, in collaboration with Jet Gems."
