Avnish's schooling has been at Harvard Business School, the University of Wisconsin, Madison, and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur.

How they Met
Tina and Avnish met three years ago at a close friends wedding anniversary party. Says Tina: "In the first meeting we were just introduced to each other. A month later we were both in Goa for New Year's and that's where we really got chatting. Avnish asked me out a month after we got back but our first date happened only in March! Two years later Avi proposed to me in Goa, at Nilaya's on New Year's Night under the fireworks!"

The Sangeet on 15th November was held at Radhika Farms in Delhi-- the sangeet was a dream land where everything from the turquoise orchids to the table clothes, candles, and fireworks matched Tina's Turquoise and Gold lehenga.

The gurudwara wedding was held on 16th November at GK1, Delhi. Tina wore a traditional crepe silk shalwar kameez with full zardozi work. A Ritus creation, Tina looked absolutely stunning in the red shalwar kameez which she combined with uncut diamond jewellery. Says Tina " I wanted a very traditional look for the gurudwara and this fit the bill perfectly!" Avnish wore a cream lucknavi sherwani from Vanshiks.


At the post Gurudwara cermony, Tina & Avnish had a champagne lunch reception at the Hyatt Poolside for which Tina wore a stunning burnt orange crepe silk sari with gold zardozi work. Avnish wore a grey Armani suit.

At the Mumbai reception on 22nd November at the Leela Poolside, Tina wore a beige georgette lehenga with full diamante work from Zeenat Sayani's Private Collections with a diamond set. Her make-up was done by Anil Chinnappa. Avnish wore a Hugo boss



Wedding Planning Experiences 
Says Tina: "My wedding tip to brides-to-be: get organized and start planning at least 6 months before- and then the last week- leave all the stress about food, decor, venues, logistics to the family and just ENJOY your wedding! Don't get caught up or upset if small things go wrong! A smiling bride is far more appealing than a sulking one! And my second tip- mom knows best! My mom was my confidante, supporter and shoulder to cry on all through the wedding planning! She had the amazing patience to suffer through all my trials and obsessions! She was the best!"

After marriage, Tina and Avnish moved to their large terrace apartment in Bandra which they are still decorating! WeddingSutra's wishes the dynamic, young achievers all luck and bliss in their married life.
