Couple Gets Married On Video Call Amidst Lockdown Due To COVID-19

By Divya Arora .

There’s this really famous quote about love that goes something like, “Love knows no reason, no boundaries, no distance. It has a sole intention of bringing people together to a time called forever”! And this probably holds the most true for this unique tale of Preet and Neet whose love managed to break the most hard boundaries of recent times— the Covid-19 lockdown!

Just like other couples, Preet and Neet’s wedding date was fixed and the preparations were all done when out of the blue the pandemic hit the entire world bringing everything to a halt. While it made almost all the to-be-wed couples to postpone or even cancel their wedding, this couple, not letting the outbreak ruin their day, decided to make the best of the present situation and chose to get married over a video call. Yes, you read that right!

The actual wedding was set for 4th April, 2020 and exactly on that day the couple got married on the call with a rather trimmed down guest list.

Amidst their loved ones and relatives joining in from different parts of the world from the safety of their homes, the duo expressed their love for each other and accepted each other as life partners over the call. “After that everybody helped themselves to chocolates they had kept ready beforehand. This was followed by congratulatory speeches & everyone dancing in celebration”, says the bride.

Postponing their wedding meant waiting to tie the knot until next year which the couple surely didn’t want and hence, breathing some life into the ongoing grim situation, the couple decided for this E-wedding. *So brilliant!*

Revealing their plans for a full blown soiree in the future the bride says, “We feel that it is our social responsibility to avoid any large gatherings in the near future and hence no functions are planned for now. But as soon as the lockdown comes to an end, we shall get married at a Gurudwara as per Sikh tradition with just a handful of people.”

Take notes all you to-be’s! If postponing your wedding is is giving you a tough time, you know what to do now! 😉

The Couple's Tale

Preet and Neet met each other on an online portal and their year long relationship has been one crazy adventure. The two decided to get married after two proposals, yes! First Neet popped the question on a date night at which point Preet wasn’t ready. And when he was, he took Neet by a surprise and got down on his knee with a ring at a fancy dinner date.

The bride further tells, “Coincidentally, on the same day I surprised him as well by gifting him a jar full of 100 hand-written notes of reasons why I love him! So it wasn’t surprising that our wedding too happened in a crazy way.”
