Here, we share their beautiful journey of love and highlights from the dream proposal video shot by WeddingSutra Favorite – Knotting Bells.
How We Met
Hriya is a talented hair and makeup artist while Chinmaya works for his family’s pharmaceutical business. Hriya’s older brother and Chinmaya attended the same university, and that’s where they got to know each other. Hriya and Chinmaya were formally introduced by a common friend. Chinmay always had this idea of proposing to his soulmate underwater, but he implemented this plan only when he realized that Hriya was the one.
The surprise proposal at Havelock Island took quite a bit of planning. But the journey wasn’t as easy as they thought. Hriya was almost deboarded from the Mumbai-Chennai flight. Chinmaya had to convince the crew to let her stay on board by revealing his proposal plans to the crew. They headed from Chennai to Port Blair and then on to Havelock Island. Unfortunately, the residents of the island were on strike. The four-day strike meant that they were stuck on the island without any supplies coming in and no diving activities taking place. But Chinmaya didn’t lose hope. He convinced someone to take them scuba diving where he finally managed to propose to Hriya. The proposal video turned out to be fantastic! Hriya knew she wanted Knotting Bells to capture the special moment as the company came highly recommended by a friend. Knotting Bells did a great job shooting this video with scuba diving instructors. The team edited the raw footage, incorporated the best images and added Chinmaya’s interviews – all of which blended to result in a wonderful proposal video.
