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, show us their platinum love bands and talk about their day of love.
At The Perfect Location, a multi-faceted space in Faridabad, we met Shagun and Ishaan to get to know their story. “Ishaan and I don’t have a love at first sight story like a lot of couples,” Shagun says, “We met through a common friend a couple of times and eventually developed a good rapport. We were good friends for years before we realized there was something more to the friendship. We dated for two years before we decided to take a plunge and get engaged.”
Each individual is unique and the truest test of a relationship is about bringing out the best in both the personalities. Shagun says, “Even though we are two very different individuals, our ideas about marriage and relationships are very similar. We manage to balance each other’s contrasting personalities very easily. We love spending time with each other and don’t feel the need for anyone else. At the same time, we also respect each other’s space and that is extremely important in a relationship. All in all, there’s never a dull moment when we are together. We are movie buffs and the love for them made us bond further. Ishaan loves thrillers and I love rom coms. But our shared love for movies is bigger than our preference for different genres.” They spend a day together indulging in a movie marathon and showed everyone just how they do that.

Shagun loves rom-coms while Ishaan does not. But there is nothing that a little convincing can’t change!
Open-air movie shows + love of your life = Bliss
They say love can be expressed even by sitting in your partner’s company without saying anything
But Shagun chooses to express her love by watching with Ishaan a thriller that he loves so much…
And the movie-time snuggles
Between all the buttery popcorn
…Despite a few intense scenes that he may not be able to handle. But no one ever said that love made sense!
Shagun and Ishaan celebrated their Platinum Day of Love
A bond like this – strong, understated and yet perfectly precious – is best expressed in love bands crafted in platinum. It would be tough to find a better representation of a union founded on love and respect. Shagun agrees, “The nature of platinum is synonymous with strength and simplicity and that resonates with our relationship which is simple, pure and natural.”
The couple who was all about romance and easy style wore platinum love bands from Gandaram Jeweller and enjoyed the vibe of the location. Makeup Artist Aditi Dubey gave the bride-to-be a classic look for the day and as the couple spent the day together, Our Wedding Chapter captured every precious moment in stunning frames.
Shagun was all praise for WeddingSutra for allowing the couple to share this beautiful day of love, “We had a great time shooting with the team. Everyone was accommodating and patient. Aditi Dubey did a fabulous job with the makeup and kept the look very real. The photographer was amazing and made us feel very comfortable.”
We wish Shagun and Ishaan a lifetime of days of love.
