How They Met
Doctors by profession, Chandni and Ichchhit first met in college. They went from being mere acquaintances to best friends during their time there. Over the years, they developed feelings for each other and started dating. Five years later, they were certain that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together and tied the knot in New Delhi.
The fun and vibrant mehndi was held at The Umrao, a four-star property in New Delhi, which is spread across 15 acres and includes beautifully landscaped gardens. Bright decor elements like marigold garlands and quirky umbrellas lit up the outdoor venue. Chandni and Ichchhit both opted for outfits by Sneha Lochan Couture for this event. The bride paired her green and pink lehenga with floral jewellery strung along strands of pretty pearls.
The swanky engagement ceremony saw lots of shimmer and glam at the beautifully decorated Udman by Ferns N Petals, which is a charming boutique hotel in the capital. The bride-to-be wore a gorgeous grey gown with a feathered hem by Natasha Dalal, while her fiance donned a sharp Gaurav Gupta tuxedo. The couple even cut a three-tier cake that was decorated with their black and white photos.
Keeping it traditional for the Sikh wedding which was held at The Umrao, Chandni wore a heavily embellished pastel pink and gold lehenga by Asiana Couture lehenga, while Ichchhit wore an elegant Sabyasachi Mukherjee ensemble. Her well-coordinated jewellery for this function was all about tradition as she wore a ‘maang tikka’ (forehead ornament), large ‘nath’ (nose ring), dangling earrings and a magnificent choker.
Chandni wore a classic red lehenga with gold embroidery by Sabyasachi Mukherjee which she paired with gorgeous jewellery, while Ichchhit opted for an ivory sherwani for the Hindu wedding ceremony that took place at JW Marriott in Aerocity. The bride made her entry under a lovely floral canopy held aloft by the male members of her family.
