The engagement of the lovely duo took place at City Park Hotel, Pitampura where Aanchal looked ravishing in a champagne pink lehenga from Frontier Bazaar, New Delhi and was dolled by makeup artist, Isha Khanna from Delhi. Kunwar chose a formal suit with a pink tie to complement Aanchal’s outfit.
The stunning bride had a super cheerful mehendi ceremony at Jaypee Hotel, New Delhi. We absolutely loved the quirky decor and colourful signage. However, the highlight for us was her double-tone pink lehenga from Pallavi Jaipur and her hand-embroidered jewellery by Fooljhadi, New Delhi that matched the theme of the function.
Aanchal then had an intimate haldi ceremony at her home in the presence of her family and friends. As the groom Kunwar is Punjabi, she had a choora and kaleera ceremony too, and a fun flower shower with her friends.
On her D-day, Aanchal was all smiles in a traditional red lehenga from Saroj Jalan and complemented the look with contrast jewels from her family heirlooms. Isha Khanna, the makeup artist glammed her up with heavy kohled eyes, a classic red lip and golden eye shadow.
She personalized her lehenga by adding the initials of the groom, Kunwar Batra, to the latkan following the trend we are witnessing all over social media.
BRIDECHILLA OR BRIDEZILLA?
“I was a bridezilla throughout the preparations, trying to get a hold on each and everything, from planning my outfit, to my MUA and photographer. I remember asking my photographer not to forget all the shots we discussed and she was like “calm down, Aanchal. It is your wedding, enjoy it.” I tried to relax, but even when I thought I was relaxed, at the time of our pheras I remember looking at my brother and asking “All going well, right?” He was like for “God’s sake, chill!.””
