“I truly believe we are a match made in heaven,” shares the gorgeous bride. And their story goes on to prove just that!
Anjali Chatrath and Balraj Gulia shared a beautiful relationship for 11 long years. “Balraj and I met in school, instantly fell in love and since then there has been no looking back,” states Anjali. On the first day of joining a new school, Balraj chose to sit right in front of Anjali and didn’t leave any chance unexplored to talk to the beautiful girl sitting behind him. Her husband admits to the fact that she had swept him off his feet right there and then!
Anjali took her own sweet time before finally saying yes to her charming and warm schoolmate who is now her husband! In fact, they were in a long distance relationship for 7 years and finally tied the knot on the 28th of December, 2015.
We love the dreamy vibe of the wedding decor...pretty drapes, fairy lights, photo frames and lots of flowers. The wedding was held at Celebration Gardens, Gurugram.
Band, baaja, baraat!
Like most girls, Anjali felt extremely emotional on her wedding day but there is another part of her that just couldn’t wait to be with her partner. “I wanted to express my happiness instead of bowing down and walking with eyes cast to the ground. I arrived at the mandap not only jiving to the music but also blowing kisses to the groom!” she shares. What fun!
Ooh, so cute!
Here comes the bride! We love the pink bridal lehenga by Varija Design Studio.
“The one moment that will forever be etched in my memory is the time when he applied sindoor to my hair’s centre parting. It’s that one moment that remains extremely special and close to my heart. It felt like now we are united forever.”
Anjali’s makeup was done by Vidya Tikari’s team of makeup professionals.
Oh, and Anjali even has this really interesting tale to share from her mehendi ceremony. “The mehendi ceremony was held for all my family members and somewhere during the ceremony we all heard loud sounds of dhols. And to our surprise, it was Balraj and his family, dancing non-stop within my society premises and I could see people peeking out from their balconies and windows to see what was happening!”
