How They Met
Shaurya and Namandeep crossed paths by chance at a friend’s house party where they noticed each other across the room. After chatting for a bit, they exchanged numbers and started dating. In their own way, the duo clicked from the very beginning as time flew once their conversations began. And, after four years of dating, they finally tied the knot!
Weddings make way for some of the happiest moments in one’s life. The couple chose LensEyeZia Productions who at every turn captured memories for the duo to cherish for the years to come. The couple elaborates, “We extensively searched for a wedding photographer, and during the course of our research, we came across some beautiful pictures clicked by LensEyeZia Productions. Their clicks were awe-inspiring and exactly in line with our vision. We immediately contacted them and it was a pleasure having them on the wedding squad. In fact, our reception was made even more special with their pre-wedding shoot and wedding highlight videos that had everyone reminiscing about the wedding. Everyone just loved their work!”
Hosted at the Neemrana’s Tijara Fort-Palace located in the state of Rajasthan, the couple’s wedding festivities were off to a grand start with a welcome lunch where the guests received a warm, desi welcome. Packed with sumptuous Rajasthani delicacies, folk performances and an open dance floor, this event lived up to Rajasthan’s high standard of hospitality.
As the guests settled in, the engagement celebration began in full swing where the couple took turns to get down on one knee and present each other with a ring. As twinkling lights lit up the palace, the dance floor was taken by storm by the couple and their parents who in true Punjabi spirit livened up the event with their performances. The air was filled with the beats of the Dhol, Boliyaan, and various Bollywood numbers that had the guests grooving the whole time!
The next day saw the sun shining bright in the clear sky with a poolside Haldi on the cards. Decorated in hues of white and yellow the couple entered to the beats of the Dhol, and in no time were ambushed by their guests who playfully smeared them with Haldi.
Hosted around 100 kilometers south of the couple’s hometown Delhi, the wedding venue gave everyone mesmerizing views of the surrounding nature. Kicking off with a spirited baraat, the Punjabi Wedding looked straight out of a dream with the venue lit up by lights and punctuated by Dhols. Once the groom reached the venue after a three-hour-long baraat, the varmalas were exchanged at the Rani Mahal under the starry sky. Peppered with floral arches, fairy lights and hues of red, the wedding was royal, exuberant and yet modern.
Nestled conveniently at the heart of New Delhi, Taj Mahal Hotel was the ideal venue for the couple’s reception. With its artful blend of contemporary as well as vintage Indian elements, this hotel exuded elegance which in turn was in sync with the newlyweds’ sensibilities. After the cake was cut, the reception festivities unfurled as Namandeep and Shaurya took to the dancefloor with their families where they performed an adorable dance number.
