School romances are the sweetest ones. Only a few of these school romances work out and culminate into a bond for life. But Balraj and Anjali -the childhood sweethearts’ story was among those few successful childhood romances. Their special relationship is 11 years long which has turned out to be a lifetime commitment now. Balraj fell for Anjali on the first day itself. After a period of time, Anjali realized that she was crazy about him too. The warm and genuine aura which they felt while they were with each other, was seemingly the essence of their beautiful love story. For the bride, the wedding day was hugely emotional but she chose to express her happiness, instead of bowing down and being sad about leaving her parents’ home. This was a new phase of life that they were about to enter; and they wanted to start it with an abundance of joy. Her happiness knew no bounds; She danced with joy for it was like the happiest day of her life, and she lived every moment, with her charming groom. Every moment of their marriage was special; but the the mehndi ceremony was the most special event, memories of which will always bring a smile to their face. The groom and his family made a surprise appearance with loud sound of drums and dholakas at the residence of the bride. Everybody danced nonstop within society premises leaving no choice for residents to peep through their houses.
Just after the engagement, their wedding shopping started with full vigour. Anjali shopped for her bridal wear from Varija Design Studio, Defence Colony. She chose an elegant pink color lehanga and topped it up with exquisite kundan jewelry which made her look drop-dead gorgeous on her D-Day.
The grand wedding was held at Celebration Gardens, NH8, Gurgaon on 28th December 2015. The venue served as the perfect spot for a grand wedding. All the rituals were performed by both the families with pomp and show.
THE MAKE-UP ARTIST
Vidya Tikari did a fabulous job in enhancing the bride’s beauty at its best. Vidya Tikari is Delhi’s top bridal makeup artist. She kept the bridal make up very natural and minimalist, keeping up with her signature style.
The magnificent photographs were captured by Navin Kumar, Retina Charmer Photography. He captured splendid shots of the various wedding functions. The pre-wedding photoshoot was also covered by RETINA CHARMER WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY.
In a wedding, there are quite special moments for the bride and the groom such as tying the knot, holding hands, tying the mangalsutra but here for the bride, one which remains close to her heart has been the groom applying Sindoor to her hair parting. She reminisces how the kesariya sindoor adorned her, and was the first step into married life. The bride sums up this great day and her awesome pair as this- ‘My wedding was everything that I could ask for. I truly believe we are a match made in heaven’. (and we totally agree…they make a beautiful couple)
We wish Balraj and Anjali, a happy and a successful married life ahead. We hope their lifetime commitment remains a cheerful affair
