If you take a look at this wedding, there's no way you'll believe us if we tell you that this happened in June 2020- yes, right in the middle of a Pandemic. The wedding was an intimate one with the feel of a big wedding all thanks to the beautiful bridal looks and the impeccable planning by The Select . Shveta and Aatish had their staycation destination wedding in Chandigarh, and we feel this is the perfect way to celebrate with near and dear ones right now while taking all precautions and being safe. Sunny Dhiman Photography captured the celebration beautifully as well.

"We met through one of our family friends," Shveta tells us.
The Engagement & Cocktail
From The Couple
We always had a destination wedding on our mind. Our initial plan was to have the wedding in Mussoorie in April 2020 but due to the unforeseen lockdown, we could not go ahead with that plan. We seized the next available opportunity to have the wedding at The Oberoi Sukhvilas in June 2020. We wanted a royal wedding at a picturesque location with a small gathering, and luckily, that is exactly how it turned out to be. Given the short time frame we had to plan, everything went perfectly and exactly how we wanted it.
The Select Events: The Select Events proved to be the pivotal decision that helped us realise the wedding of our dreams during the Covid-19 lockdown. Given the short time available for planning the entire event, we were surprised how well each detail was handled by the team of Select Events.
The team is very professional and we are really glad to have worked with them because they put in a lot of hard work to make this wedding a dream come true even during such difficult times.
The Oberoi Sukhvilas Spa Resort: We wanted a blend of a royal theme at a destination wedding and this venue provided the perfect location for this. Super professional hospitality, mouth watering dishes and a picturesque location.
Shahid Naar: Very professional, patient and accommodating of the bride's expectations. He gave shape to the perfect wedding look.
Sunny Dhiman Photography: A wedding photographer immortalises a wedding's precious moments and we could not have gone with anyone else other than Sunny Dhiman Photography for making this happen. The entire team feels like part of our family at the end of the wedding. Everyone was so hard working, professional and humble to work with. The quality of the final pictures and videos speaks for themselves as they surpassed all our expectations. Be it our Roka ceremony, the Pre-wedding shoot, the pre-marriage ceremonies, the ring ceremony or the actual wedding, no one else could have done a better job of clicking our special day. We strongly recommend Sunny Dhiman Photography for all your photography needs.
Strings & Knots really came through to our expectations of a wedding decor planner during these difficult times of Covid-19 lockdown. We are really glad to have worked with them because they put in a lot of hard work to make this wedding a dream come true even during such difficult times.
