‘The MBA Wala Love’
“You want to know who I’m in love with? Read the first word again, he said and I was nothing but dumbfounded in jitters.”
On ’24th February 2018′, an eight years long journey finally met its destination.
The very humble, super talented Punjabi bride’s happiness knew no bounds. Be it Haldi, Choora ceremony, Mehandi or the very D’ day, Akshpreet was nothing less than a picturesque beauty dazzling within and without.
Their Wedding Story:
“So we met in 2011, while we were preparing for our MBA entrances. We became good friends then and from that time till we got married it was ‘love at every sight’ for both of us. We never really were together in the same city at the same time so whenever we saw each other there was always a tingle and butterflies on the slightest touch,”
-Says the resplendent beauty.
“We loved and loved our wedding to bits and there is no room for any complaints. Though we loved how terse the ceremonies were and how we were more focused on the fun parts of it,”
-Says the couple when asked about their favourites from the dream day.
Theme & Decor:
The wedding theme being, ‘Modernity in thought and Appearance’ it was a win-win in all aspects. From tons of compliments for the wedding decor to the cumulative dance performances of the family as the bride says, everybody was involved in the celebration from head to toe.
The Wedding decor was customised by the couple itself and managed by ‘Ferns and Petals’ wherein the bride was nothing short of a mischievous fairy happy to the brim to see her wedding done right.
“We got a major appreciation for the attention to detail – the notes in the rooms, the itinerary placed in a very modern way, the return boxes to all my girlfriends with makeup, trinklets and a note of love, and the wedding decor was complimented a great deal,”
“You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”
The world from this photographer’s lens was a surreal beauty. Aksh’s photographer ‘Art Capture Productions’, Chandigarh truly managed to reveal the glistening pearl out of an oyster.
Outfit and Designers:
The couple chose to go for coordinated outfits on the ring ceremony and decided to go for a beautiful contrast on their wedding day.
“Our idea has always in life been to compliment each other in every possible way. For the ring ceremony, it was about coordinating our looks and dressing up in a chic way, while for the wedding day we chose to compliment each other with distinct colours for our outfits.”
-The stylish duo.
On her engagement, Akshpreet looked ethereal in a pastel lehenga with threads, sequins and stones embroidered all over it. On the other hand, Warid wore a black outfit with complementing embroidery. The dream day saw both the bride and the groom in a complete regal look, with the groom in a mint sherwani and the bride in a hot pink lehenga. We could simply cross our hearts and say, that the designers ‘Asiana, Ziva Couture & Agunj Official‘ did an impeccably excellent job.
For ‘Mehendi’ I chose a radical and yet luxe look with a somber ‘lehenga’ along with a bralet and cape, accessorizing it with huge earrings and floral accessories for my hands and braid,”
-Says the alluring bride.
Food and Venue:
The big fat Indian wedding of Aksh and Warid took place in ‘Maharaja Grand’, Ludhiana.
“Our wedding was the most modern I’ve ever heard of, for all the customary traditions. It was a ‘milni’ (meeting) of hearts and there were chocolates for ‘jutti chupai’. It was great how both the families respected each other’s desires and how beautifully it turned out to be.
The food was exquisite and people still rave about it. The choices were in abundance from condiments and entrees to a beaming array of desserts. It was simply scrumptious,”
-Says the newlyweded wife.
It was arranged and managed by the in-house catering of ‘Maharaja Grand’ itself.
Videography and Choreography:
“Our wedding was a dream come true because it was the perfect blend of traditions, modernity and fun. There were performances by all members of the family and everyone seemed very involved with all the traditions. It was great to see enthusiasm at its peak,”
-Gushes the ecstatic couple.
Making them dance to their steps, ‘Step Up’ and their choreographers lived up to the charm of the wedding and indeed made our hearts skip a beat.
‘While the dance got them on their feet the videographer captured each beat.‘ How we envy ‘Art Capture Productions’ for witnessing the beauty of a thousand happy faces.
Makeup and Jewellery:
Akshpreet the seemingly picky bride went for numerous jewellery designs for her wedding. Her handpicked list of jewellers was, ‘Zevrat’ – Rajouri Garden, ‘Madan Jewellers’ – Karol Bagh, ‘Ganpati Jewellers’ – Mall Road, Ludhiana.
As selective as she is, Akshpreet got her makeup artist, ‘Rishab Khanna’ especially from Mumbai to add to the dazzle and glamour of her dream day.
Advice for all Brides-to-be:
The most reassuring advice any bride-to-be would need on her wedding is right here by our exemplary real bride, Akshpreet Narula.
“The only advice would be; relax and enjoy your wedding. Have your closest people attend your wedding. Especially for the girls: be absolutely stress-free and live every moment of it. Take loads and loads of pictures with the closest family and friends and make memories that would last forever,”
