Meet Gunjan and Pankaj
In Gunjans words "I come from an extremely traditional Kashmiri Pandit set up. In contrast, Pankaj is from a chilled out and flexible Sindhi Family. Confessing to my parents was a challenge in itself, wherein it came to a situation where Pankaj had to have multiple conversations with my father to prove that he is “the guy” for me..! Phew..! Also, this aint where our problems ended. We had at the same work place - which was an added problem for us. We couldnt be seen together "publically" - so basically most of our dates were in restaurants/ clubs/ lounges where noone goes (as in the less popular ones) or we had to go with our respective friends.. Always!! Talk about being filmy. None the less, we managed our way through and I am lucky to have found my best friend and partner in Pankaj!"
From the bride: The location we chose for the shoot was Haus Khas Village and we started at 5:00am in the morning! (Phew.. gives me jitters when I think about it now!). But going ahead with our photographers Hitched & Clicked’s advice of having sn early morning shoot with natural light paid off and looked wonderful. The props (ballons, glasses, bed sheet, basket, etc.) were all suggested by them and they went into the minutest details such as matching my dress with balloons!
The second location was Country Inn and Suites. We wanted to do it there as we are having our Engagement Function there – attached with the venue and thankfully there werent any permission problems using the pool. After doing exactly 120 shots underwater, in the start of winters (yes.. it was in November!), we were thrilled, excited and COLD. Not only were we in water, but both Gaurav and Astha (from Hitched and Clicked) made sure they were in it with us..! My fiancé (Pankaj) had already discussed the underwater proposal idea with them which came as a pleasant surprise to me! In a nut shell, we enjoyed every bit of this experience.
