How They Met
"Vardaan and I were introduced nine years ago by mutual friends at my college festival. We dated for two years and then he proposed marriage. At that time, I was working in New Delhi and he was studying film-making in Mumbai. After completing his course, he decided to visit his family in New Delhi, and that is when we finally decided to get married.”

Mehendi
Akansha’s mehendi function was an outdoor night soiree. “Although the gorgeous decor made for stunning shots captured by Dilliwale Weddings, the chilly night mountains winds were a little difficult to bear."

Haldi
Instead of a conventional haldi ceremony, Akanksha and Vardaan were treated to a colourful Holi party by their families and friends after getting turmeric paste smeared on themselves. Vibrant and fun-filled, the 'Holi-Haldi' ceremony was one of the most memorable events for the couple and their loved ones.

Wedding
The wedding ceremony was held on the banks of the Naukuchiatal Lake. The groom and his squad made an entry via a 'bike baraat.' After the rituals were over, Vardaan stole Akanksha away from the guests and took her to an isolated boat on the Naukuchiatal Lake where the couple got gorgeous portraits shot by their wedding photography team.
