Karishma + Ashwin | Rustic Rajasthan

Quick Question: What makes travelling for 16 hours by train and another 3 by car worth it? An opportunity to work in a venue like this.

Standing in the middle of the desert, this is perhaps one of the most beautiful locations to get married in. Subtle, charming and so gorgeous! Jaisalmer, is not your traditional wedding destination, which is exactly the reason why it was chosen for this wedding. With its charming fort market, winding roads and camels for co travelers, it is a paradise tucked away in Rajasthan.

The first time we saw Moolsagar, it was an absolute mess. With overgrown grass, bugs and stagnating water. After four months of cleaning, a lot of hard work and going back and forth, we transformed it into a stunning wedding.

The family was clear from the very start, that they wanted to retain the rustic aesthetic of the space and not convert it into an ornate palace wedding. Softly done to seem effortless, we used local clay lanterns and lamps along all the pathways. The Mandap ceiling was covered with bells made by a local potter and fairy lights were hung from trees to create a magical garden. The florals were minimal with lots of rose petals and local jasmine

Wedding Hack: Use diyas (clay lamps) to fill large empty spaces at the venues. It’s an old school trick that works wonderfully at any wedding.
