FROM THE BRIDE:
Please tell us something about yourself and your husband. Where did you meet for the first time?
Please share your romantic love story.
Complicated story , met through a shaadi website in 2012 and started talking. Though we felt a connection we rejected each other for various reasons and moved on in
life. Reconnected through a message in 2013. He then promised to buy me a drink! One drink led to us dating! After loads of ups and downs finally I said yes to marry him after he planned a very romantic
proposal at band stand 🙂
Tell us about your wedding style!
Our wedding was a complete mix. We had a filmy sangeet with loads of performances by our talented and mad friends . A crazy black tie cocktail party and then a very simple yet beautifully traditional Maharashtrian
wedding at Iskcon temple.
What did you enjoy most about planning your wedding?
I enjoyed not having a wedding planner. I and my husband handpicked everything! It was a very
personal and a crazy experience.
How did you decide on your dream wedding lehenga or sari?
I was very clear about my outfits. Wanted something simple yet classy. After looking around for a while I found both my wedding and my sangeet lehenga at Sagar. They completely got my style and made to order everything I wanted in the Budget I quoted. It was like a dream come true.
How about hair and makeup? Did you already have a style in mind or did you work with an artist to find your perfect look?
Shamita is a friend of mine. I love her style. She doesn’t hide the beauty of the bride under layers of make up. She brings out her best features and enhances them. I knew I wanted her even before I decided on my wedding date.
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?
It was a collaboration of so many moments. But what I remember the most is it being such a smooth journey. It was like I was with my best friend and remember being excited about being able to spend the rest of my life with him.
I also was overwhelmed with the amount of love around. I was filled with gratitude to have such insane friends, wonderful parents, my relatives and my super in laws.
How did you choose your photographer? Did they deliver to your expectations?
Aanchal came to us like a gift from above. Seriously, we were tired of looking around. But when we met her we knew she was the one. She got our vibe immediately! And she did a fabulous job. She was not just my photographer she was also a pillar of support through all my special moments! She is a superstar! She did Candid Photography for us for all our functions.
Any other experience you would like to share with us? Is there anything you would have done differently? What is your advice to our brides-to-be?
It was one of the most dearest experiences of our lives. And the only way we re-live it is through the pictures and the videos. I will urge all couples to look for those perfect curators (photographer and videographer) of your wedding.
And for all the brides – Concentrate on your partner, once he is right everything else will fall into place.
