Khush and Rubal, Ludhiana
Donning a Kalgi and Mala like the ones once worn by Maharaja Bhupinder Singh, the erstwhile King of Patila, the groom shone like royalty.
From locking eyes across the school courtyard to walking down the aisle, Khush’s fairytale romance got the breathtaking ending it deserved. Captured in priceless frames by WeddingSutra Favorite – Sunny Dhiman Photography, their unforgettable moments were immortalized to be cherished forever. The couple share details from their wedding here.
How They Met
Khush says, “Rubal’s mom owns the school where we both studied. He first saw me when I was in the eighth standard and soon developed a crush on me. He attempted to initiate a relationship with me several times but I wasn’t ready. Soon after, he told his mother about me and then his family approached mine for a match. We were surprised but it also made me realize that his feelings were genuine. He hails from an amazing and generous family. My parents were happy as they could envision a blessed future for me. We got engaged on my birthday, which made it very memorable and, five years down the line, we are finally married.”
Khush says, “It was Rubal’s dream to get married at The Grand Orient as he loves the gorgeous decor and the architecture. Selecting it for our celebrations was an obvious choice.”
The couple planned the wedding themselves, armed with an arsenal of spectacular vendors. Khush says, “The team of Sunny Dhiman Photography was entrusted with capturing every moment of the celebrations and they did a splendid job. As I was wearing a heavy traditional outfit with statement jewelry, I wanted my makeup to be really subtle. The look Roop Kaur created for me just pulled everything together beautifully.”
The traditional Anand Karaj ceremony was serene with delicate decor in white and red, planned and executed by Tanvi and Co. from Ludhiana. The white mogras and roses that decorated the venue matched the couple’s outfits perfectly. Reminiscing about the day, Khush says, “The ritual took place at our school, the very place we had first met, making it all the more special. Rubal wore an outfit by Rimple and Harpreet Narula, accessorized with an elaborate Kalgi and Mala that was modeled on a design worn by Maharaja Bhupndar Singh, the erstwhile King of Patiala. It added regal flare to his look. I worked on it with designer Sonu Gandhi to get the perfect results.”
Talking about her own outfit, she says, “I took outfit inspiration from the 90s and, along with Akriti by Ritika and Shakun, I achieved my perfect look. Handmade completely with Rajasthani embroidery, it was what I had always dreamed of. I teamed it with heavy gold jewelry from Sardar Jewellers, Ludhiana – inspired by the statement jewelry Aishwarya Rai wore in Jodha Akbar.”
The rituals were followed by a celebration at The Grand Orient, where Satinder Sartaj enchanted everyone with his magical voice.
Talking about the experience with Sunny Dhiman Photography, the couple says, “Sunny’s work is beyond perfection. Every angle, every background and every edit was amazing. The entire team’s hard work and passion is commendable.”
