"Love doesn't make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile."
The journey of finding your soulmate is never that simple. It is, honestly, a trial and error method that most of us go through. However, when you do find the ONE, life becomes a muddle of bliss. With your emotions everywhere, your feelings everywhere else, everything that never made sense before, starts making sense. Just like it did for our newlywed couple Priyanka & Ashutosh.
Introducing Priyanka & Ashutosh
"Ashutosh and I met when our parents exchanged our biodatas," Priyanka reveals, "However, I wasn't ready for marriage. Plus, the distance between was too much. I was from Coimbatore and he was from Mumbai. So meeting during the lockdown was difficult."
So, that's when the two connected online, "We spoke the entire night. I fell in love with him and decided that he was the person I wanted to spend the rest of my life with. Then we unofficially met at the airport, then officially gave our yes on 17th July."
The beautiful #AshuKiPihu intimate wedding was held on 9th December, with three major functions in total that included their Sangeet, Haldi and Wedding.
Haldi Drenched in Lavender Colour
Ditching the usual yellow, the couple opted for a rather bright, lavender, pink and white colour scheme for their haldi function. From the decor to the flowers and even the bride and groom's outfits, everything was drenched in these whimsical pastel colours. Much to everyone's delight, the couple entered the venue on a colourful auto with dhols and purple smoke bombs announcing their arrival.

Galm Sangeet Night
Glamorous in every way, the sangeet night was like watching a scene from a Bollywood movie. Priyanka looked stunning in a black sequin encrusted gown with minimal jewellery and open curls. While Ashutosh donned a dapper black velvet bandhgala suit to match his bride-to-be's outfit. The couple put forward amazing dance performances with a group of dancers from the Angel Performing Arts that was truly a sight of wonder.
Pretty Intimate Wedding
Priyanka wore a fantastically designed red lehenga by Anamika Khanna with heavy jaal embroidery along with a flowery hair bun and beautiful jewellery. Ashutosh on the other hand wore a dapper off-white sherwani with gilded gold embroidery, an off white safa and a moti mala. One of the most amazing things about this wedding was the fact that our whimsical bride danced her way to the mandap, much to everyone's delight. The day wedding was an affair of reds and whites, with drapes of these colours covering the entire venue. In fact, the couple's mandap was covered in red and white roses and carnations!
