Aanchal & Shray, the couple who met just 15 days before their engagement, surprisingly beguiled each other during this short time-span. Though, at first, Aanchal never wanted to leave India to settle in Australia with Shray, fate has already decided its course for her. So, in hope that her excuses would call off the wedding, when she saw his pictures, she found as many reasons as possible to reject him.
When Shray didn’t call Aanchal on the specific day they were supposed to talk, Aanchal concluded that even the guy wasn’t interested in her; that of course made her happy. But as they say, if you’re meant to be together then you are meant to be together. Out of the blue, Shray called her after two weeks and that very moment they knew, this was it. Shray tried to pull off an Australian accent, and the spontaneous bride Aanchal left no time in pouncing on him with the most sarcastic one liners. Shray played along and had better come backs according to the bride. They just laughed and teased each other the whole time during their conversation, and Aanchal was pretty much impressed with Shray’s sense of humor and personality.
When Shray flew down from Australia to India, they spent some time together. Shray had already planned a proposal for the bride, and when she went to the washroom, he grabbed the opportunity and prepared everything. When she came back, Shray was on his knees with a toy ring in his hand. Aanchal being Aanchal nudged him for not getting a real ring. “As we have a relationship which is all about pulling each other’s leg, I said not with that ring. He’s like since I’m going back in 7 days I have given the real ring to the jewellers so just wear it for now”, says the bride.

“Since Shray was overseas I kind of had a lot on plate so I obviously selected ideas online and added my own touch of colour choices / fabric choices etc and asked the venue events team to implement it. My wedding outfit and cocktail outfit were my designs which were modified by the designers. I chose unconventional colours for all my functions.”, says the bride.
“Vendor decisions were through word of mouth and my constant research of their work online. My Mehendi decor and dress code was of the theme Bollywood with Arabic twist”, says Aanchal.
“Wedding day gave me jitters butterflies as I was never going to be addressed as Miss . It was even worse for me as I was going to go miles away leaving my professional career, friends, family, my city rather country and settle in a complete foreign land with not knowing anybody apart from Shray . It was a very emotional day but back of my mind I knew that I’m marrying the best man!”, says Aanchal.
