My favorite moment from the wedding…
The pheras at the wedding was my most favorite moment. The timing was perfect with the sunset in the background and I had my close family and friends around. It was really special. It was the moment I actually felt like I was getting married.
I cried when…
The only time I got teary was during kanyadaan. I saw my father crying and I got emotional. It was a pretty heavy moment.
My wedding style was…
I planned all the wedding details myself so it was about having a lot of fun. We had a lot of friends and family coming from interstate and overseas, so my main aim was to make sure they had a very easy, fun and stress-free experience. We wanted everyone to have lots of fun drinking and dancing.
Most valuable advice for future brides
It’s very easy to get carried away with a lot of ideas and opinions of other people. My advice would be to make sure you go with what you want to do. It’s your day. You have to personally enjoy it. Don’t let the details of the wedding stress you out. This is a once in a lifetime experience and you want to make sure you remember it for the rest of your life. Secondly, I highly recommend delegating your work to family and friends. Don’t be shy – they want to help during this time, so make the most of it.
About The Couple
How we met
I’m a celebrity stylist with my own fashion consultancy (Wardrobist Consultancy) and Karan works for Microsoft in the same building. There is a cafe right under our building where we first saw each other. We made eye contact, and I suppose there was a spark. We didn’t talk then, but the next day, we bumped into each other again at the cafe and ended up talking. We hit it off and started dating a few days later. We had been dating for three years before we chose to get married.
We went away to Goa for a friend’s wedding which happened to fall over Valentines’ Day in 2016. We were hanging out at the beach with his sister and his friends when he asked to go for a walk to the beach. Just when the sun was setting, he proposed out of the blue. It was completely unexpected, but it was perfect.
Being married is
Getting married has been a very natural process for us. We moved in together and it’s a really nice feeling to come home to someone and sharing your whole self with them. It’s like marrying your best friend.
