About The Couple

Their Tale

Natasha and Chinmay met at the University through their mutual friends. He bought her a coffee once and little did they know that when she’d be returning the favor a few weeks later, they would embark on journey that was going to last forever. The duo revels in the simple things that life has to offer like staying in and watching movies together, going for walks, and travelling.

The Proposal

How Chinmay planned and proposed to Natasha on their third anniversary (which was a huge milestone for her) is oh-so-romantic and literally straight out of dreams! To celebrate their anniversary weekend, he first took her back to where they first met and went on a date together. The next day, under the pretense of taking her for a breakfast, Chinmay took Natasha to the airport blindfolded, to board a flight to Melbourne (from Sydney) where he’d booked the most luxurious apartment she’d ever seen in her favorite hotel, Crown.

The bride quotes, “He took me to dinner which was so romantic and he told me he wanted to change his shoes before we finished our night out so we went back to the apartment, only to find it covered with rose petals, candles and photos of us. There was a huge box in the middle of the room that he asked me to open. Out of the box came a heart-shaped balloon with the words “Will you marry me?”. By the time I looked down I saw him on one knee with a beautiful ring in his hand. I said “Yes!” and from there, our forever began.”

The Intimate Home Mehendi

Decor-A-shaan along with Fluer Walls & Decor, Lilac & Willow, and Elegant Tea Time curated an intimate sit-down setup with rugs, cushions, flowers, candles, lanterns, and a welcome signage.

Couple Looks

Styled by Nikki Arora to a tee, Natasha pulled off an offbeat pastel-hued look for the day in a simplistic ice blue Sabyasachi saree paired with an embroidered blouse.

While a stunning polki and ruby choker and a complementing rani haar amped up her look, a tousled rose adorned side braid, smokey-shimmery eyes, flushed cheeks, and nude lips made it all pop perfectly!

Chinmay, on the other hand, coordinated with his lady love flawlessly in a printed bandi and white kurta-churidaar set from Manyavar Mohey.

The Pink-Themed Haldi

Hosted at her home itself, Natasha’s haldi ceremony centered around the hues of pink is nothing you’d have ever seen before. With Fluer Walls & Decor, stylist Decor-A-Shaan set up a pretty baby pink draped mandap for her haldi seating.

While the roof of the setting was festooned with cascading thread tassels and potli button-style pom pom strings, an antique chair, water vessels, and candle lanterns completed the setup.

Natasha's Look

Keeping up with the aesthetics, Natasha slipped into a blooming pink and white Anita Dongre ensemble that lent her a ‘fresh as a dewdrop’ look.

To top it off, matching bangles and floral jewellery from Prune India accessorized her look spectacularly. Whereas, open tresses and softly flushed makeup were the perfect finishing touches that this romantic haldi look needed!

Pastel-Themed Pheras

For the royal and pastel-themed soiree, a stunning white and lilac hued mandap by was set up that complemented the couple’s wedding looks.

Hosted at the Curzon Hall, Sydney, fresh blooms in hues of white, lilac, and pastel pinks adorned the entire space making it look like a floral wonderland.

Couple Looks

The duo looked like a daydream together in their complementing beige and lilac Frontier Raas ensembles. While Chinmay looked like a true royalty in his embroidered beige sherwani paired with a lilac stole and safa, Natasha twirled in her lehenga resplendently.

Marked with intricate thread and sequin embroideries with hints of multiple hues, the lehenga was oozing with a glimmering charm of its own. Natasha further accessorized her look with glorious polki and baby pink beaded jewels that included a choker set, a necklace, striking bangles and haath-phools.

Nikki Arora worked the charm of her makeup wand and gave Natasha soft shimmery eyes and a nude lip complemented by a tousled floral bun.
