Nudged by their parents into speaking to each other, it didn’t take them more than a few hours to fall in love. Anirudh and Anoushka’s sweet story evolved into a wonderful union of souls! Orchestrated by WeddingSutra Favorite Ahan Destination Management, here are a few moments from their glamorous wedding.

Anirudh and Anoushka, Delhi

How We Met
“I remember the first time we met, our parents were on opposite sides of the table and kept awkwardly asking us to go and talk to each other. I suppose you have to start somewhere. But once we began talking, hours felt like minutes and we realized we’d chatted for 4 hours at one go! There was no looking back. We spent more time together and soon realized our love for each other!”

The Proposal
“Being an arranged marriage situation, Anirudh didn’t really need to ‘propose’ to me and we’d already had our formal roka. But still, he decided to make an effort to be romantic. He drove for about 2 hours only to pick me up and surprise me with a really romantic dinner! As I walked to my favorite restaurant, not once did it cross my mind that I was going to live my own filmi moment there! Anirudh had arranged a breath-taking rose petal and candle-lit dinner setup and to top it all, he even went down on one knee!”

The Wedding Venue
“Our wedding was held in Delhi across three venues. For our Sangeet and Sufi Night we chose the prestigious Taj Palace. We booked their Shah Jahan and Darbar halls and our choice couldn’t have been better! Right from the plush architecture to the amazing hospitality and breathtaking decor, the place truly welcomes you to paradise! For the wedding, we needed a place that could accommodate over 2000 people and we found that at The Riviera by FNP Gardens. We hosted the reception at Roseate House in Aerocity.”

Wedding Planning
“We had Ahan Destination Management as the event planners for our wedding. With their passionate team always on the go, we never faced a moment of stress! Working alongside them, we also had Vivaah Wedding Solutions as event planners. Our invitations were designed by Occassions by Renu Ganeriwala, and we trusted Manish Mehta and his team to capture our precious moments on film!”

Wedding Functions

Sangeet
“The revelries started with a night of merrymaking on the dance floor! While Simran Ahuja flawlessly hosted our event, we saw some crazy Bollywood moves presented by both families! Following our performances, the music producer duo, Meet Brothers, and Khushboo Grewal brightened up our night and had everyone dancing to their tunes in high spirits! I chose a pink and blue Sabyasachi lehenga for the function while Anirudh went for a darker blue Ravi Bajaj creation.”

Sufi Night
“Imagine round tables lit with low, delicate chandeliers set against the backdrop of wood cut windows. This was the magical setting for our Sufi Night! While the decor oozed calm sufiana spirit, Tarkash, a Delhi based band had everyone tapping their feet to their soulful music. Making the night even better, Anirudh’s close friend, Sreeju Premarajan, an Indian Idol contestant, also did an impromptu performance.”

Mehendi Night
“We hosted the mehendi at Roseate House in Aerocity. Matching the colors for the night were coral and aqua and they resonated with my outfit from Kaaisha By Shalini. With dhol walas and the famous Delhi based band, ‘Delhi Drunk Drama’, the night was truly dhamakedar! We even had an Instagram Photo Booth and a photo-op wall with a life size installation of our wedding hashtag #Anirushka!”

Wedding Day
“I’d dreamed of a palatial setting for the big day and I got something even better! Adorned with mogras and candle lit shamianas, the venue looked so idyllic! While the rituals took place, a special jugalbandi of Rajasthani sitar players and a Russian orchestra entertained the guests. Dressed in a regal Sabyasachi sherwani, Anirudh was welcomed royally with an authentic 41 piece Narangi Dhol! My lehenga was a Tarun Tahiliani creation.”
