Our initiative ‘Love Actually’ features engaged couples and captures beautiful moments between them. The series celebrates the beautiful people in love as they start their lives together. Over a fabulous makeover and a photo shoot, we get these couples to share how they met, capture the rare connection they share and talk about their day of love.
We met Garvita at a place she loves with the one she loves. DLF Place, Saket is one of Delhi’s most popular mall and that’s where she and her fiancé Gitanshu celebrated their day of love, giving us a chance to tell their story.
It all began in 2010 when Gitanshu was working on MTV’s Gangnext, a web series. Garvita volunteered to shoot videos for the show. She says, “All the extra hours we spent together post college, the nights out, him dropping me home, surprise birthday parties, super long phone calls eventually took the shape of something that was a lot more than just friendship.”
Many will say love is blind, but in fact, it sees but does not mind. And this is just what makes Garvita and Gitanshu’s story so extraordinary. Garvita says, “I am a very a short-tempered person and it takes a lot for the other person to be able to handle it. I would say the amount of patience and calm he manages during such situations made me realize that he, indeed, is very special.” Gitanshu adds, “We know how to keep each other entertained, but what’s important is that we are each other’s greatest strengths.”
Garvita: Guess which ‘How I Met Your Mother’ character depicts my plan for today!
Garvita: It’s ‘Let’s go to the mall… today!!’ by Robbin Sparkles!
Gitanshu: Hey, those are some great outfits on your wishlist!
Garvita: So glad you like them. Cos you’re going to be paying for them!
Gitanshu: Hahha let’s check out that store too.
Garvita: This day couldn’t get any better.
Then Gitanshu puts a platinum ring on Garvita’s finger…
And left Garvita thrilled beyond words!
Rings exchanged – it’s time to seal it with a kiss!
Gitanshu: And with that, I declare this day over.
Garvita: Not yet! Just follow my lead and you’ll love what I have planned next.
Gitanshu: Should I be worried that you can read my mind?
Garvita: Maybe. But for now, let’s gorge!
That’s how Garvita and Gitanshu celebrated their bond that is as rare as platinum.
And found their Platinum Day of Love.
Garvita talks a little bit about their journey, “Our eight year long relationship has been full of joy, craziness, and love. We have seen tough times too but that has never deterred us from dreaming about a beautiful future together.” Strength and perseverance is what makes their relationship one that is perfectly represented by the timeless, pure, Platinum love bands – a symbol of love crafted using one of the rarest metals. Garvita smiles dreamily, “Gitanshu has been my biggest support, has always motivated me to push the boundaries and pursue what I love to do. It feels great to be reminded daily that there is someone who loves me immensely.”
While makeup artist Misha Vig transformed Garvita with her expert skills, Jalandhar Jewellery House tied the themes of the shoot together by extending their exquisite platinum jewelry. Allied, captured the day in candid frames that perfectly narrated the duo’s sweet love story.
We wish this couple a life of togetherness and joy!
