About The Couple

How They Met

Prasoon and Sanchita met the first time while they both were working at the same place in Hyderabad. Their first date was literally a dosa breakfast at a small South Indian place in Hyderabad itself while she was leaving because of her transfer to Pune. It was one rainy day in Lonavala when Sanchita was coming back to Pune and Prasoon was leaving back to Hyderabad when they realized that there surely is something more between them. There love story grew on their travel adventures in and around Hyderabad and Pune.
After involving their parents back in 2017, the couple still decided to cater to their careers and hence, were in a long-distance relationship for about two years as Prasoon had moved to Canada. They then got married in 2019 in a super fun and warm ceremony in Sachita’s hometown- Bikaner.

Even though they are poles apart as individuals, imperfect in their own beautiful ways but, as a couple together they’re perfect. They both share their love for traveling and enjoy Netflix and chill with Ice creams.

The Details

Wedding Planning & Details

The wedding was planned entirely by the bride and her sister for they both are pro-sustainability and Sanchita was sure about having a green wedding. They got along with Prakriti Rajvanshi from Creative Minds Corner and curated the wedding in an enchanting way. Sanchita wanted her wedding to be in Bikaner for the mystical and royal feel the place boasts of. Also, because the idea was to host an absolute eco-friendly affair with minimal or no wastage, the decor was reduced to bare minimum and instead of letting the plush property of Lallgarh Palace (their venue), and the surrounding greens work their charm. Known for capturing weddings with tasteful aesthetics and delightful zest, there couldn’t have been a better team of photographers than Beginnings For You working their magic like always and cinematographers Joint Production.

The Shoot

The royally elegant shoot was done at the famous Rampuria Haveli, Bhanwar Nivas, Bikaner. While Prasoon looked all crisp in a royal blue suit, Sanchita looked super graceful in a white dress with a gorgeous back!

The Mehndi Ceremony

The pastel themed intimate mehndi was a riot of subtle hues, signages handmade with mirror, seed paper and cardboard, and eco-friendly favors like seeds wrapped in cloth from Araatrika and saplings wrapped in jute cloth instead of plastic.
