In so many of the Indian weddings I feature, I am often missing the story behind the couple.
I always find it fascinating to know about the story behind the pretty pictures, and in the case of Nupur and Saurabh, I had the chance to do exactly that! Read about the couple’s story after the amazing pictures.
Details I Loved
Holi incorporated as part of the wedding was so cool I thought. And the retro motorcycle with the side carriage was perfect for the day. It looks like so much fun!
Holi and Haldi Party
I loved the idea of a holi celebration as part of the wedding. It adds such a colourful and playful element to the wedding, which I am sure everyone would enjoy. Not to mention, it makes for a beautiful photo op!
First of all, it was a surprise for everyone except the bride and groom. We both love to celebrate Holi and play with colors. With a whole bunch of friends, cousins, and colleagues playing colors together, it was definitely the most memorable and out most favorite.
Wedding and Reception
Lavish yet elegant wedding decor is the hallmark of a wedding done tastefully. The couple selected rich gold accents and dashes of rich shades as their colour scheme. Might I say, the end result certainly looked fit for royalty!
How it all started
Best to hear it from the source…. so in the words of the couple,
We both are VIT University Graduates. It was in 2015 we met for the first time when Saurabh came to recruit students from his company behalf to VIT University, Vellore.
We both worked together in the same company for about a year and fell in love. It was a roller coaster ride for us. Firstly, it was a \colleague relationship at the beginning which got converted to Girlfriend-Boyfriend later. It was a difficult ride as we were hiding it from everyone in office but later on, when friends and colleagues got to know, it was a very exciting and most memorable time of our journey.
Highlights for the couple from the wedding
When we saw each other for the first time during the wedding. It was for the mehndi function, I was coming down from the lift and he was waiting there to receive me. That moment we both just wanted to hug each other and gulp the reality that this is actually happening.
Tips from the Couple to Others planning their wedding
- Try to be on time or before time so that you can get your portraits clicked and enjoy the functions at the fullest
- Always have your bridesmaid around you or at least one person to be with you in your room always especially when you are getting ready
- Make sure you click pictures with your family coz that’s what you are looking for in the end. For a bride, it’s important to have pictures with mom, dad, brother or sister for each and every function
- For haldi & holi – Don’t use an extravagant outfit. Keep it simple
