In a recent report, KPMG revealed that the Indian wedding industry is the second largest in the world after the US with an approximate size of $50 billion – an astounding number. Unlike other industries, the Indian wedding industry is dominated by a core group of stakeholders who control the majority of the market. Retrouvailles is a platform that brings together these stakeholders – all real-life rockstars – to celebrate and appreciate their work. Retrouvailles is a French word which means: the joy of reuniting with someone after a long period of time .

Retrouvailles ’20 is a new initiative by EXP Exchange to celebrate the best of the Indian Luxury Wedding Industry. It was a first-of-its-kind event to celebrate the best of the Indian Luxury Wedding Industry. True to its promise, over 300 wedding professionals attended an evening program of a showcase, live music and entertainment.

The event was organized by Kanika Mehta and EXP Exchange.  Said Kanika, “We wanted to get the leading wedding planners of India together – all real-life rockstars – to celebrate their work and are delighted with the response.”

From the makers of the impeccably designed Deep-Veer wedding to the celestially gorgeous Virat-Anushka wedding to the highly-detailed Priyanka-Nick wedding to the mammoth Ambani wedding – were a part of the event.

The event took place on Friday, 20th December 2019 at Riviera House, Ambience Island, Gurugram.
