"A happy marriage is about three things: memories of togetherness, the forgiveness of mistakes and a promise to never give up on each other."- Saurabhi Surendra. And we believe that happy marriages come out of both arranged and love unions.
When Subha and Sidhant were introduced to each other, their lives changed forever. Though tied together in a knot of arranged marriage, the couple found much in common with each other- more than they had ever imagined.

This was followed by a sundowner Mehendi event at the club. The entire venue was doused in florals and fairy lights. With bright pink and golden yellow as the backdrop, the entire venue was dotted with decorations made out of gendaphools, Rajasthani umbrellas, and dreamcatchers. Another element that caught our eye was the decorated jhoola that was drenched in gorgeous greens and roses.
For the Mehendi, the bride was dressed in a fabulous pastel pink outfit, with elements of teal blue, sky blue and magenta that she had designed herself under her label, BlazebySubha. To this ensemble, she added an amazing side braid and OTT floral earrings.
The Sagan took place at Essex Farms, Sri Aurobindo Marg, Delhi.
