About The Couple

Their Tale

Neha and Rajan met each other years back in 2005 through mutual friends. They both dated as young teenagers but drifted apart when they went off to university.

It was years later when their love rekindled and they’ve been inseparable ever since!

The Proposal

It was in 2017, when Rajan surprised Neha with a trip to Cinque Terre, Italy. One sunset, he led her up a little cliff overlooking the ocean and it was there when he asked her to marry him. He chose a beauteous cushion cut diamond to reflect Neha’s soft but edgy personality. It was set in a pave band with 12 tiny diamonds signifying the 12 years he had known her. How adorably thoughtful!
