How They Met
“Bikram and I have known each other for about 12 years. We went to the same school in Germany where he was an exchange student and the only Indian beside me. Our first conversation ever was initiated by me where we exchanged numbers in case he needed something since he was new. Soon enough, our friendship blossomed, and I started liking him. As good friends, we spent a lot of time with each other. When he had to move from the city, he made sure he visited me twice a month or went out on holiday with me. As more time passed, our careers became an important part of our lives, but we never let that affect our bond, and eventually, we realized that we were meant to be.”
“It took us almost a year to put together every little detail. My friends Sinem was of great help and was by my side every step of the way. I had always known what I wanted my wedding outfit to look like down to the last detail. Harkiran Basra from Chandigarh was the designer who breathed life into my dreams of the perfect outfits. Our photographer was Mr. Dhiman of Sunny Dhiman Photography, who did a fabulous job with capturing our big day.”
Aman shares, “Punjabi weddings are all about bright colors and lots of cheer. Staying true to the essence of this occasion I decided to wear a gorgeous fuchsia salwar kameez on the day of our wedding. The monotone outfit featured floral designs that were created using golden threads and zardozi. I matched this with heavy polki jewellery and golden kaleerein.
Once the Anand Karaj was over, the wedding party shifted to the Bath Castle and with a new venue came a new outfit! For the rest of the wedding celebrations, I changed into a striking blush gown. The button-down bodice was covered in a web of intricate floral designs, and the theme continued on the voluminous skirt. The outfit was complete with a waist cape and a beautiful scalloped veil. I complemented this attire with polki jewellery that had contrasting mint green drops and received lots of compliments for my look!”
“Red is the traditional color for an Indian bride, and I decided to include that in my trousseau with my choice of lehenga that I wore for the reception. The lehenga’s sheer fabric was complete with tone on tone embroidery and pearl embellishments. The all-red outfit made a bold statement and to heighten its beauty I wore a choker set that was layered over a long necklace. In ordered to match the contemporary vibe of the event, I had my hair styled in large loose curls.”
