Dr. Rajat Sogani & Devang Shah


Dr. Rajat Sogani and Devang Shah, the co-founders of 7X Weddings, a curated luxury wedding planning and management company, share their story of sewing dreams to reality.

Hailing from the ‘Pink City of India- Jaipur’, Rajat is from a traditional Jain family running the business of jewelry. An MBA from Delhi, Rajat is the founder of 7X weddings – a niche class wedding planning company in India. His farsightedness, energy and vivacious attitude make him outshine as one of the best in the wedding Industry. His experience is most sought after, for the royal palatial weddings across the erstwhile royal state of Rajasthan, especially in the main cities of Jaipur, Jodhpur and Udaipur. While his forte and keen eye for details keep his schedule occupied with destination weddings, events in and around Kerala, Goa, Dubai, Macau and HongKong as well.

The inspiration for this wedding planning business was from Mr. Devang, cofounder of 7X Weddings, and Rajat had forever wanted to leave a unique impact in the Industry and hoped to change the way people thought about events and weddings. The application of indigenous ideas was something that they wanted their customers to know. Both Rajat and Devang, resonate with vibrancy as the duo share, ‘At 7X the scope of creativity is endless. We do not believe in monotony and work towards personalized experiences that bring smiles to our clients with the difference we make. The possibility of creativity and innovation in our industry is huge. There is no second time or a way to correct if things go wrong. So high levels of efficiency and backup are what we play with’.

Their epic journey began in 2004 when Rajat started off as a marketing executive handling median marketing and international business for over 8 years and grew to the position of Director. It was during this time he consulted brands on marketing and business solutions, it came upon him to turn into an entrepreneur and follow his dreams. In 2013 he kick-started Seven Inks Business Solutions PVT Ltd, which is one of the biggest business solutions and consulting companies. With time realization and struggle resurfaced, and the angst to make a mark and reach the top of the industry swept in.

Joining hands with Devang, 7X weddings was launched, as a one stop event company, they have been acclaimed for their work ever since. Few but not all of their recognitions entail – ‘Times Man of the Year’, 2018 by Times of India, Eminent Featured Speaker at Voice Of Business Gujarat – News18, 2019; The ‘EMF Ace awards’ for five consecutive years since 2015, in different categories like – Best destination wedding, Best Sangeet; Limca book of records holder ;7X weddings have also received accolades by Wedding Sutra (the biggest wedding portal in India) for converting wedding hiccups to hurrays, they have been featured by Yahoo lifestyle for taking the wedding industry by storm.

Well, 7X weddings as an organization are proud to claim 100 percent satisfaction for every client in their 5 years of expertise. Undoubtedly, they are the top players in the industry in Gujarat, the business usually spreads through word of mouth. At 7X weddings we listen, understand and do not work with rigid packages, we offer and deliver dreams by curating each wedding, big or small, leaving no stone unturned.

Rajat shares, ‘Our specialty are Royal destination weddings, and we have made a mark for a decade now. The love for aggregating the best vendors at the best possible prices and quality, and making clients expectations come true for their most important day, is our priority’.

The passion in the team Dev-Raj(short for Devang- Rajat) is achieving something new each time, with he
utmost creativity. They now function in an auto mode with a huge bundle of ideas and newness each time, keeping a close eye on trends worldwide. When enquired on GST in the billing of Huge Fat Indian weddings, Rajat expresses, that GST in events and marriage industry should be looked at, and if made comparatively lesser will be a boost. People pay for a wedding from their own savings and these taxes on every element adds to the cost, which directly or indirectly pinches their pocket.
