FROM THE BRIDE:
I (Pooja) am a funny yet serious, quiet yet chatty, Punjabi girl. Born in Chandigarh and brought up in Delhi, and now settled in Netherlands, I love to travel and explore new places and experiences. Sudhanshu is serious yet funny, chatty yet quiet, a typical Delhi boy. And that’s how different we are! J Yet, we share the same interests, hobbies and food habits.
Sudhanshu and I met each other 9 years ago in Delhi. A common friend, Mansi got us introduced to each other. It was a Sunday when Mansi and I were shopping in GK2 market in Delhi, and we ran into Sudhanshu. It was raining heavily that time, so we decided to go for coffee. It wasn’t exactly love at first sight as we fought, made fun of each other, and were very different from each other. But what followed for us was 2 years of friendship, 3 years relationship in Delhi, and a 3yr long-distance relationship – we have seen it all. 🙂 It was in 2013 when we decided to get married and move to Netherlands to begin the next phase of our lives.
We chose to go in for a traditional wedding. After viewing a number of wedding venues, we decided to go in for the Le Meridien hotel as the wedding venue as it is a perfect blend of contemporary and traditional interiors. In addition to the main wedding hall, we also booked their lounge and garden areas, and gave it a red and green colour theme – something we continued until our reception.
I have always been a big Ritu Kumar fan, especially of her traditional and ethnic wear. Thus, I was sure of wearing a Ritu Kumar lehnga for my wedding. I worked with the lehnga experts to select the perfect look for me.
Looking back, was there a moment that you remember from your wedding that stands out as the most wonderful and cherished moment of the day?
There were lots of wonderful moments, but one of the most cherished moments was when Sudhanshu and I were going through the wedding vows. Having attended so many wedding and seen several Bollywood movies, I knew how this setting would look like, but never imagined how special it could be. I could see our journey of the last 9 years flash in front of my eyes.
How did you choose your photographer? Did they deliver to your expectations?
We chose Simran Jagdev Photography for candid photography. We also had two traditional photographers to cover the wedding. They took care of the still photography and videography. We were really impressed with Simran Jagdev Photography’s work. Everyone in the family loved the candid pictures.
