People say, “Meeting the right person is critical for a lasting relationship”. Though it is difficult to find a perfect match, with some people we can get along despite the differences and some occasional fights. Anish and Aparna, both IT professionals, believe in this philosophy and went through various shades of relationship, whether it was love or anger, woe, or happiness, and finally decided to tie the wedlock.
The families were met, everyone seemed content and finalized the wedding day. Everyone was excited. Preparations started with hall booking and purchases. Suddenly an uninvited guest came – The Pandemic. The lockdown was imposed. Both families waited but in vain. They realized that the wedding was not going to happen on the initially planned date. Eventually, the wedding date got canceled.
When the restrictions were eased a bit, the families decided to go ahead with nuptial despite other restrictions. New dates were taken, new venues were decided, and the rest remained the same.
On the wedding day, the ambiance at Hycinth was calm and composed. With a smaller number of attendees mainly closely-knit relatives and friends, there was less commotion at the venue. But they had to perform new-age rituals such as wearing masks, social distancing, and sanitizing.
The phrase ‘simple is beautiful’ felt apt for the occasion. The groom arrived at the venue at 11.00 AM dressed up in the traditional Kerala style outfits. He was welcomed by the bride’s brother and relatives and escorted to the wedding dais (mandapam)
The bride reached the venue after 15 minutes. She was dressed up in an elegant Copper Zari Purple saree and looked vibrant. The ornated crimson tinted hands from the previous day’s Mehndi enhanced the beauty.
The bride had been escorted to the dais (mandapam). After performing the traditional rituals, she sat beside the groom. The stage decorated with rose petals gave a picturesque backdrop and enhanced the visual appeal.
At 12:00PM, the priest handed over the thali to the groom. He tied the knot while others chanted and threw flowers at the couple. There were a few more rituals and the groom put vermillion on the bride’s forehead symbolizing the nuptial.
There were a few more photo sessions. Then the bride changed her attire before the couple went for lunch. Aparna looked adorable in the new traditional Kerala style saree.
Finally, both the couple bid farewell to everyone and thus culminating the function. You are not finding a perfect match rather you are trying to become a perfect match by understanding each other’s differences and flaws. They embarked on a new journey.
Presenting the happy wedding highlights Video and wishing them a lifetime of love and togetherness.
