Marriages are made in heaven but celebrated on earth. Now Singapore-based Indians do not have to travel back home to enjoy a well-planned event. Samyog Wedding Planners, South India’s biggest wedding planner has forged an alliance with Singapore-based events company Arte Compass to bring its expertise and service here.
Speaking exclusively to India Se, Rekha R Rangaraj and Vidya Gajapathi Raju, the dynamic entrepreneurs said, “Last year we had clients coming from Singapore to Madras and we helped them with all the wedding arrangements. This gave us confidence in setting up a presence in Singapore and we believe that Akila Iyengar’s knowledge and reach in the Singapore market through Arte Compass will be a great fit.”
Samyog was set up nine years ago when Rekha (56) and Vidya (62) realised that Madras did not actually have a single company that provided end-to-end solutions. The two, who were happy home-makers till then, decided to start off with an initial capital of Rs 10,000 each. “Both of us are good organisers, had plenty of social connections, excellent people skills and were very hard working. We believed we had the right ingredients to start up a wedding planning service.”
