Introducing Mehak & Ankit's Wedding Celebrations in Shimla
"It may sound a bit cliche, but we both met each other through an online matrimonial site," Mehak Bajaj recalled the first time she met Ankit, "But when we met each other, we clicked so fast. Mostly because we shared the same level of craziness and our future goals were quite similar as well."
During their long-distance courtship period, Mehak and Ankit's bond grew even stronger, despite the lockdown, "After all the basic lockdown shenanigans of planning a wedding, we finally zeroed in on a wedding venue and planner, and started prepping to be married!"
While discussing her road to the wedding mandap, Mehak continued, "Getting everything done during the pandemic was a task but our event planner GMS Event Planners was our saviour and made our wedding a memorable one. Everything was on point and beyond our expectations, if I have to I would put it this way: GMS created our dreamland in the midst of all the chaos!"
The wedding festivities began with the mehendi function. Held during the day time, amidst the sunny and chilly air of the hills, the gorgeous Mehendi was dotted with pastel elements everyone, including pampas grass and mildly coloured flowers. Mehak looked like a dream in her pretty pink and orange lehenga along with a loosely braided fishtail studded with baby's breath flowers and minimal jewellery. Ankit Bajaj, similarly kept the spirits high, in white kurta-pyjama ensembles paired with a white and red Nehru jacket.

Enagagement & Cocktail
The engagement ceremony was a memorable wedding celebration for the couple and their friends and family. Paired with a cocktail party as well, the function was a glitzy event in the night! Mehak wore a beautiful shimmering gold gown with glowing dewy makeup and open curls parted to one side. Ankit, on the other hand, chose to style himself in a simple black tuxedo which looked chic and smart on every step.
The morning of the wedding was the haldi celebration. Held in the backdrop of the shimla valley, the morning affair was covered in playful haldi and lots of booze that turned it into full time fun. One of the most gorgeous parts of the event was beautiful furniture covered in floral furnishings.
The #Ankitmehekega wedding eve began with a bang, with fireworks everywhere as the bride walked down the aisle towards her groom for the jaimala. Dressed in a gorgeous red lehenga with stunning golden embroidery, Mehak completed her ensemble with a stunning neckbrace jewellery piece, and an OTT mathapatti and nath, along with smokey eye makeup that totally took our breaths away. Ankit complimented his bride to be in a dapper off white sherwani adorned with sequin embroidery and a red safa and stole that matched his bride's red.
