Jill and Kunal’s Platinum Day of Love

Our initiative Love Actually is a pre-wedding photo shoot series that captures the beautiful moments between couples in the most stunning locations across Mumbai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai. The feature showcases couples who actively seek ideas and inspiration from WeddingSutra as they celebrate their eternal journey together.

Jill was introduced to Kunal by her parents and the couple first met at a gorgeous restaurant in Mumbai. Jill says, “It was a typical arranged marriage set up. We exchanged thoughts and knew something was brewing when we continued to chat even after the meeting was over.”

Jill and Kunal's Pre-wedding Shoot at InterContinental, Marine Drive

Kunal, a banker, was transferred to Bangalore shortly after their first meeting but he kept flying into Mumbai to meet his girl. “Nothing was decided,” Jill remembers, “We’d speak on the phone and meet when he was in Mumbai. We were just getting to know each other and were more like friends than anything else.”

But Cupid struck. And there’s no love like that brought on by laughter. “It was my birthday,” Jill smiles, “Instead of taking me out on a ‘romantic’ date and showering me with gifts, Kunal took me to a comedy show. It was really a special thought and it helped us break the ice and as we got talking, we weren’t awkward with each other anymore.” Kunal however already knew he’d met the girl of his dreams and told his family he wanted to marry her.

The couple will be married soon and have made sure they’re equally involved in the wedding process, even divvying up the responsibilities between both families to save time, effort and enjoy the wedding.

A pre-wedding shoot was just what this couple’s busy schedule demanded. Set in the dreamy environs of the Intercontinental, Marine Drive, a day away from the wedding chaos meant this couple could retreat into a romantic world of their own.

A little pampering was also much appreciated! “I am so happy that the team chose us for the shoot. Makeup Artist Johann Arora made me feel like a complete princess. And the photographer Vrutika Doshi was so much fun to shoot with. The venue was by far the biggest treat. We shot at Dome at the InterContinental which offered some breathtaking views of the Queen’s necklace. The venue beautifully captured the subtle romance between us and also gave the pre-wedding photo shoot a very dreamy setting.”

Ahead of the formal engagement ceremony, platinum love bands were the perfect way to celebrate their union, during their pre-wedding shoot with WeddingSutra. “Exchanging these platinum rings felt really special, that too before our formal engagement ceremony. It reminded us of the undying friendship and eternal bond we share. I don’t think this would have been possible without the brilliant WeddingSutra team and I cannot thank them enough for letting us experience this beautiful moment together,” Jill smiles.
