Four months is all it took for Navneet and Varun to make their decision of a lifetime after they first met, and a heartfelt proposal was followed by a gorgeous waterfront ceremony in sunny Goa. Here, the bride shares her lovely wedding photographs and the stories behind the memories captured by Jodi Clickers.

Navneet and Varun

How We Met
“My parents had made an account for me on a matrimonial website where Varun too had put up his profile. My parents liked him and asked me if I would like to meet him. I agreed, and a formal meeting was arranged for in New Delhi. That’s when we met for the first time. We spoke for about 15 mins, and everything about that conversation was awkward. We exchanged numbers and kept in touch through texts and phone calls for the next four months. We also met up a couple of times and eventually realized that we had met our soulmates in each other. Both of us were always on the same page, and I found it so easy to be myself around him. There was no need to pretend because he accepted the way I am. This is something that attracted me towards him.”

Proposal
“His proposal to me was very simple. He took me out on Valentine’s Day and over dinner, he popped the question with a stunning ring in his hand.”

Wedding Venue
“It was my dream to wed by a beach, so we decided to get married at Goa. We visited several properties before zeroing in on Park Hyatt Goa Resort and Spa which we found was very wedding friendly. There was a banquet hall spacious enough to accommodate all our guests, plus several smaller venues for pre-wedding functions. The hotel even helped us finalizing a wedding planner. Our wedding was photographed by Jodi Clickers. I wasn’t sure about what to expect from them at first, but that feeling changed when I saw the results of the pre-wedding photoshoot. They did such a fabulous job. They also have the facility of uploading wedding pictures on their app on the same day of the function which the couple and their guests can access and view. I thought this was quite remarkable.”

Wedding Functions

Sangeet
“We decided to begin our wedding celebration with one of the liveliest functions at an Indian wedding – the sangeet! It helped set the right tone and got everyone into the wedding mood instantly. The key decor colors for the night were silver and purple, and our LED stage was the highlight of the setup. Our photo booth included a lip-shaped couch and pretty lights to add a playful vibe. For this function I wore a sparkly jade green gown by Nakul Sen and Varun opted for a black tuxedo.”

Mehendi
“Our mehendi was our most happening function. We were hosting this in an open-air setting where bright colors like pink, yellow, orange, green made the surroundings more cheerful. We had a bangle bar, mehendi artist, and fun activities planned for our loved ones. With my friends, sibling, and cousin I planned a flash mob which was a surprise even for Varun and was appreciated by everyone. We had rain dance and foam party as an extension of this function. For the mehendi, I wore a yellow lehenga by Aastha Narang.”

Wedding
“The setting for our wedding was breathtaking as we exchanged our vows by the water. The color scheme for the decor at this ceremony was pastels. We created a large canopy for our guests using mint green and white drapes, and florals arrangements were a prominent part of the setup. I opted for a pastel green lehenga by Sabyasachi while Varun wore a white sherwani.”

Reception
“This was the final bash of our wedding celebrations, and we all enjoyed a live performance by Meet Brothers. We took a glamorous route for the decor for this ceremony and let gold and black be the colors for the night. I picked up a peach Indo-Western attire from Aza for this function which fit wonderfully with the vibe that we had created.”
