THE BRIDAL AFFAIR INDIA BLOG
Welcome to the real wedding of Aashni & Varun, college sweethearts who tied the knot after 9 years of dating with a fairy-tale celebration in Mumbai.
“We met back in 2010 as we were in the same junior college, Jai Hind. We were introduced through a common friend and that began our journey on 18th November 2010. 9 years with a year of long-distance later, we decided to get hitched. MBA and Pediatric dentist, a love cliche and a practical headed, love travel and food, mimosas and sushi pretty much define us.
Varun planned a beach proposal in Bentota, Srilanka on a trip with a bunch of our closest friends 2 days before New Year of 2018 – making 2019 a year full of planning and making our 11:11 wish come true! He planned an elaborate evening with all of our friends in on it, with WILL YOU MARRY ME written with fairy lights in the sand, a bottle of champagne, a promise ring and OUR song, JUST THE WAY YOU ARE by Bruno Mars. A memory worth a thousand words. An 8-year long dream coming true.”
“We wanted an open venue, with the wedding taking place at the golden hour – a perfect balance of greens and the decor color-matching with our outfits. Also being a plus point was my father’s dream to wed me off at the Royal Western Turf Club. Being a winter wedding, the weather being a bonus – it was a fairy-tale wedding much in the literal sense. An intimate yet open, elegance is what we were going for”
Cocktail Party: Sunday Brunch ( Drunch ) at Kino’s Cottage. The theme was a WHITE PARTY – Sunshine and Sangria – got personalized Stirrers with our monogram done with signature drinks of the bride and groom.

The Wedding Makers
Devansh & Harsh are absolutely incredible to work with, so fun and so professional at the same time! They captured the emotion more than just a picture – and made the pictures speak a thousand words, quite literally. Would love to shoot with them again! Our wedding wouldn’t have been the same without them capturing it.
A special shoutout to Aditi from Fireflies Decor for doing an absolutely amazing job with the wedding decor! She made our day nothing short of a fairytale.
