Meet Bride & Groom

How they met:

Love brewed at a time and place they least expected it to. The pair first met during a trip to Canada as their parents who were friends for a long time, insisted the two meet and get to know each other. They started at being friends and it wasn’t long before they realized they were actually meant to be together for the rest of their lives. At a point where Umang had to leave for London to further his career, they realized they did not want to stay away anymore. The happy couple had been in a long-distance relationship for a while and somewhere in between love blossomed. The head over heels kind of love. A very unconventional love! These two best friends-cum-soulmates are not big on mushy romantic gestures but would rather seek thrills and adventures together for a lifetime to come.

The Umani Wedding Celebration

Umang & Nidhi’s engagement cemented this commitment and wedding bells were in order. The pre-wedding shoot was definitely one for bookmarking. For the conceptualization, designing, and management, the couple unanimously picked Swaaha Weddings & Experiences. They transformed their dream wedding to become even better than the couple had envisioned it.

Gorgeous Bride Outfit Details

The bride picked a poppy looking number from Papa Don’t Preach by Shubhika for Bohemian Henna, while for the sangeet she went with a rare, statement-making piece by Rare Heritage. Her outfit looked gorgeous in a Mrinalini Rao for the Lagan Lakhvanu & Mameru and took glam and shimmer to a whole new level in an Eye Candy ensemble for the Shimmer night. Nidhi’s haldi outfit by Label D showed unparalleled craftsmanship, while for the wedding day she opted for a quintessential Sabyasachi lehenga. Exceptionally stunning was the Gaurav Gupta number the bride chose for the Wedding Reception.
