How We Met
“Many people have a hard time believing that Rimal and I met through an online dating app! Living nearly 100 miles apart, we started off with zero mutual connections but a million things in common. As cheesy as it sounds, it felt as if we’d known each other since forever! We logged out from our online profiles right after the first date and decided to involve our families after a few months into the relationship. The whole process was effortless as everyone saw how perfect we are for one another!”

Pre-wedding Photo Shoot
“The pre-wedding shoot was easy to plan. With the Macmillan Cancer Support 26-mile hike already on our list, we chose serene Dorset for our shoot. Luckily for me, Rimal is a very hands-on guy, so he had everything ready in no time. All that was left to do was plan our respective ensembles. We first decided to go with a ‘beach look,’ so I chose a flowy maxi dress. Rimal matched the colors of my outfit with his shirt and white shorts. However, with outfits being our key focus for the shoot, we felt the need for a change to something that matched our personalities. This was when we decided to sport two looks, and we’re both so glad of our decision! Understanding our likes and preferences, our photographer, Elliot brought our imagination to life. He chose two locations for the shoot which complemented both our outfits and the vibe we wanted with each of them.”

Roka Ceremony
“The pre-wedding shoot felt like a cakewalk, but planning the roka was a little stressful. I wanted it to be a surprise for Rimal and his family. Thankfully, I had the help from the very talented Surita from Decor My Day and my family! Surita not only came up with brilliant ideas to make the marquee look stunning but also shared little touches to wow the guests. The ice-cream truck that had everyone going gaga over it in the 30-degree heat was one of her ideas. Her expertise and attention to detail were appreciated by all. As for our outfits, I chose a dull grey Arinder Bhullar gown with a sheer dupatta and Rimal chose a blue Roberto Cavalli suit.”

Best Experience
“Oh, that’s pretty simple! Spending time with loved ones! There is something special about celebrating love surrounded by your nearest and dearest, and the endless laughter and madness are moments we will cherish forever!”

Wedding Planning
“We are getting married in April 2019, and the preparations are in full swing now, although Rimal claims that he has been planning our nuptials since our first date! However, we’ve decided to stray away from stress and enjoy every moment of the planning as well. After all, it is our once-in-a-lifetime moment!”
