Ruvneet and Tanveer, Chandigarh
Pretty floral décor in delicate spring hues wove a pretty story with the lush greenery of the venue.
Ruvneet and Tanveer’s journey from an arranged match to an organic and enduring love was perfectly commemorated with a serene ceremony in their hometown of Chandigarh. WeddingSutra Favorite – Tuhina Chopra Photoworks captured the nuances of their bond in delicate frames, glimpses of which are shared below.
How they met
The bride shares, “Tanveer and me met through our families, a route neither of us had imagined taking when it came to getting married. However, I would call it serendipity that he was the very first person I agreed to meet! Right from the beginning we felt a connection that we agreed to let grow organically. Several trips between Pune and Chandigarh coupled with other memorable getaways over the span of two years convinced us beyond a doubt that we had found something truly special. We exchanged rings, just the two of us, in the very same Italian restaurant where we had first met, over champagne and our favorite pepperoni pizza.”
In Siswan, close to Chandigarh, a private farmhouse which was a regal property was chosen as the venue for the wedding and family dinner. This was the location where the bride always aspired to be married at. The Sangeet was held at Amaltas Farms. The remaining pre-wedding functions were held at the couple’s homes. The Photography team of Tuhina Chopra Photoworks artfully captured the events.
The bride shared, “I have known Tuhina from school and have followed her body of work closely. I was always attracted to her unique and effortless aesthetic. When it came to our big day, Tuhina was a delight to work with. She was both extremely professional and very warm. She magically knew exactly what we would like and took no time in directing us to get there. I most admire her patience, attention to detail and her creative spirit. She has given us the most beautifully captured memories which we can now preserve forever.”
The tranquil nuptials were hosted against the beguiling backdrop of a private farmhouse in Siswan, near Chandigarh. Pretty blooms and drapes in delicate hues of peach and pink wove a pretty story with the lush greenery of the venue, perfect for the sun-soaked day celebrations. The bride looked enchanting in a Tarun Tahiliani ensemble with delicate floral motifs and appliqué-work, while the groom perfectly complemented her in an intricately embroidered blush pink sherwani. The intimate ceremony was filled with tender emotions, tears and smiles.
Advice for Couples
“Planning our wedding amidst the pandemic was no easy feat. However, it really helped us focus on what was most important, which was having a great time with family and friends. Being surrounded by our supportive families and the amazing vendors that we had hand-picked allowed us to enjoy the whole planning process. While we took great effort in personalizing each experience even as we ensured that everyone had the best time, we decided not to sweat the small stuff on the actual day and instead, focused on having the time of our lives!”
