When east meets west.. fairytale love of Aanchal and Tarik
This is the story of two opposites. A chirpy, bubbly, gorgeous MBA grad , Aanchal and a relatively shy and reserved jeweler , Tarik. And the journey of their pre-nuptial meeting. The leads of our story are both based in New Delhi. While Aanchal loves gymming and reading , our groom’s interests lie in squash and music . An interesting blends, hmm? The story gets spicier as we move on.
We often talk about love at first sight. For this adorable couple, it so happened that way. They met at a family friend’s place. The moment they had met eye-to-eye, Aanchal and Tarik knew they’d met the person they would want to spend the rest of their lives with. And then came the days of courtship. They lived really close to each other’s houses and so it was all the more easy to be in one another’s vicinity. From dropping midnight maggis at his sweetheart’s place to planning an extremely romantic proposal, Tarik would go the extra mile for everything love. If you’re waiting for the proposal story, here it goes. The venue was Intercontinental, Nehru Place. They went to a Chinese restaurant, Chinese being Aanchal’s favorite cuisine. The stage was set and the lights were lit. The venue looked nothing short of a film set. Every half an hour, dinner gifts began to arrive. And finally, when Aanchal was sipping her drink, she bumped across something round. A ring maybe? Of course! The next thing she saw was Tarik going down on his knees proposing to her. The couple endeared everyone in the restaurant so much that the manager went forward to Aanchal to tell her how lucky she was to get Tarik.
As the day of the marriage approached, there was considerable nervousness for Aanchal as she would have to shift to a new home. But ask her now and she is a beaming wife who is as comfortable as she was at her parent’s place. But before we jump the gun, here’s the wedding story.
The events kicked off with the roka ceremony on the 24th of May 2014. The engagement and sagan were held at a farmhouse in Chhatarpur in December. The bride was beautifully dressed in an outfit made by Om Prakash Jawahar Lal, Chandni Chowk. The much awaited mehendi ceremony(Dec 3) saw Kundan Artists from Rajouri Garden coloring the bride’s and bridesmaids hands in henna. There was a cocktail party , the very next day and a surprise bachelorette party thrown in by Aanchal’s friends. On 5th December 2014, the D-day had arrived. Decked up by make-up artist Chandni Singh, the ethereally beautiful bride and the handsome groom arrived at Kundan farms to a grand welcome. They were finally united in love! This was followed by a grand reception on the 7th at Brij Farms. This time, it was Harpreet and Rimple Narula who had the honour of designing the dresses.
Chandni on Aanchal (bride): Aanchal looked gorgeous on her big-day and I have given her classic smokey eyes with an intense eyeliner & kohl to bring out those deep set eyes. Her red lips with and coral blush complete the look.
Then came the honeymoon. They chose a mix of hills and beaches to make sure they didn't missed out on anything. From the beaches of Singapore and Australia to the pristine hills and mountains of New Zealand, Aanchal and Tarik celebrated the culmination of their love. Even while celebrating this, they did not forget the endless support from both sides of the family. Here’s to more exciting journeys for Aanchal and Tarik, the stars of a fairy-tale wedding. CHEERS!!
We wish this perky couple, a very Good Luck!!
