When Shreya met Nikhil!
There’s always something special about falling in love and getting hitched to your ‘best friend’… Isn’t there? Our chirpy girl, Shreya hails from Mumbai, and Nikhil (the super caring guy) is from Kolkata. They met for the first time through a mutual friend in London.
And soon they became the best of friends. But honestly, when cupid has other things planned – can you be friends for long!
Soon love blossomed and Shreya and Nikhil ‘officially’ started dating!
Roadblocks in Love!
But as fate would have it, Nikhil was leaving for India after finishing his studies and Shreya had to stay back in London. Doesn’t this remind you of Raj and Simran from DDLJ!
Finally she returned to India, but even after that they couldn’t meet frequently, as they were based in different cities. But when you are ready to walk that extra mile, distance is just a number!
Shreya reminisces, “It’s been great, a lot of fun and full of travelling as it’s always been a long distance relationship for us!”
The Fairytale Proposal!
Just imagine… getting proposed by your sweetheart on the world’s tallest building – Burj Al Arab! Nikhil planned a trip to Dubai for a surprise proposal for his lady love, and we’re loving everything about it <3
He booked a private yacht which would sail from Dubai Marina to the Burj. Taking opportunity of the lovey-dovey scene as they approached the magnificent Burj, he was about to pop the question – but at that exact moment they had to step back inside the boat due to high tide!
Not giving up easily, he then booked an ultra romantic dinner for two at Atmosphere, Armani (Burj Khalifa), with special arrangements on the 1st of January. Shreya discovered a ring in the champagne glass and before she could react, he quickly popped the question!
Lo and behold… She said ‘Yes’ and who wouldn’t! What a dreamy proposal idea… so if you’re looking for wow ideas to propose to her, get all your inspiration right here.

The Iconic Prewedding shoot in London!
Why the prewedding in London? “London is our all time favorite city” quips Shreya! And why not… its where they met for the very first time.
“We literally made a list of locations we wanted to cover and what kind of outfits we wanted to wear. We wanted to keep it more casual and natural and realistic”.
Their looks varied from casuals to traditional Indian, even western gowns and suits. Now those are some cool ideas to use for your own prewedding shoot, aren’t they!
Over their five day shoot, they covered some cult locations and even rocked desi looks at videsi locations! 😜
Pro tip by Shreya – “Choose your locations and clothes wisely and make a list of it all.”
Most Memorable Moment during their London Prewedding?
“When we were shooting in Hyde Park, I fell off while cycling – and the way he cared for me. Oh I would fall a hundred more times for that love!”
Their LOL Moment!
“Everyday there used to be many funny incidents, especially the arguments between Rahul Jagani (our Photographer) and Nikhil when he was asked to give expressions on camera! (which boys are not really great at!) and then those umpteen retakes!”
Wedding in Kolkata… after the lovely Prewedding in London!
Shreya’s wedding shopping was a crazy ride and she picked most of the outfits from Mumbai and Delhi. For her wedding, she chose an evergreen traditional bridal lehenga from Anita Dongre’s new gotawork collection.
