Have you ever come across a love story so adorable that you ran out of awwws? I have, many times (lekin bas mujhe hi aisa ladka nahi milta!), but never have I exhausted my awwws so quickly as I did after I heard Masaan-fame actress Shweta Tripathi and rapper Chaitanya Sharma's love story. They are the definition of mushy, a perfect example of old-school romance in the modern day.
They met on stage, then on a flight, fell in love eventually, dated for a long time and now five years later, they are all set to tie the knot in a stunning destination wedding in Goa on 29 June. Their wedding celebrations have begun with a simple mehendi ceremony for Shweta. The actress posted some super cute stories on her Instagram profile, where she looked like a ray of sunshine in a yellow kurta while getting her bridal henna applied. Check them out:
Her beaming smile is enough for anyone to realise that she's not a regular bride-to-be. Shweta is quirky and sassy and even her mehendi design portrays that. She got an aeroplane and a roller coaster designed into her mehendi. The plane because that's where she met Chaitanya and a roller coaster because that is apparently where Chaitanya first asked her out! Awwww!
She also got Chaitanya's name written in her mehendi, along with a few other motifs. Millenial brides take note - minimal and quirky is the new way to go with your bridal mehendi.
They are just the cutest, don't you agree? Okay, I realise I've said cute too many times already but hey! Can't help it. It's so amazing to see Chaitanya and Shweta and happy and excited for their big day. For more pictures from their wedding celebrations, stay tuned!
