How did you meet?
I knew Tish’s best friend who introduced us. We went on a night out where a guy hassled me for my number and Tish stepped and said ‘don’t bother my girlfriend’, from there it all started; late night talks and MSN conversations. Funnily, Tish made me wait until our A-level exams had finished until he officially asked me to be his girlfriend! Seven years later, he asked me to be his wife and am I glad that I said yes!
Where did your planning journey begin?
Planning for the wedding began nearly a year after getting engaged. We initially thought we were going to have a simple registry wedding, however once we got stuck in we couldn’t resist the temptation of having an Indian wedding. Once we decided that we were going to have ‘Our Big Fat Indian Wedding’ the real planning started, from viewing venues to organising the guest list. I scoured Pinterest, Instagram and of course the Asian wedding magazine to start gathering ideas. I even started a scrapbook!
How did you go about choosing the right suppliers??
Luckily, we have quite a few friends that work within the industry, so we were able to choose our suppliers quite quickly without any pressure. We spoke to friends that had recently got married and used their recommendations.
Its important to remember that there is no such thing as ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to planning your wedding. Suppliers are more than happy to be flexible to your needs and wants and that’s important – at the end of the day, it’s your big day and you want to make it as special as possible.
