They say, “Some couples are destined to be together.” Well, we couldn’t help but agree when we read through this cutesy couple’s sweet love-tale. Namrata & Naman were in the same school since childhood but were never really friends. The duo only knew each other through aquaintances. However, as fate would have it, their paths criss-crossed & they ended up solemnising their love amidst the presence of their near and dear ones!
It was a post-pandemic wedding with a boisterous line-up of events on the wedding itinerary. Namrata wore some exquisite outfits throughout her celebrations, but it was her forever gleaming face & ear-to-ear smile that acted as the perfect accessory she carried! Add to that Chaitali Patel Makeup Artist 's makeup, and she turned out to be one of the prettiest brides we saw off late! Without further ado, dive straight in and witness all the gorgeousness from this wedding, captured through the lens of Studio Beunique
Meet Namrata and Naman Solanki
We were in the same school since childhood but were never really friends just knew each other through acquaintances. It so happened that our families knew each other distantly and when the time came things somehow fell in place and we were arranged to meet for a possible 'arranged marriage'. We instantly clicked and when went on a few dates and decided this was it for us! Our wedding was initially suppose to happen on 16th April 2020 right in the middle of the lockdown! We obviously postponed it! The lockdown actually turned out good for us because we spent a lot of time together at each other's homes and got to know each other really truly well! After that the wedding and marriage felt easy.
From The Bride
16th February 2021. I have a little classic and traditional style but Naman loves a modern vibe so we decided the wedding will be mine and the reception his for deciding the themes and overall feel.
