To start, I would like to say that a piece from our heart will always be in India, and Florianne and Sarthak's Indian Fusion Wedding is truly what Maharani's dreams are made of. Stunning and magical are the only words coming to mind right now because I find myself lost of words to describe every detail of this phenomenal film created by Twogether Studios. They captured every aspect of the celebration that mingled two different cultures into one single unity through love. Gurugram, one of the most beautiful cities in India, became the perfect place to celebrate the promise of eternal of this sweet and charming couple. The Leela Ambience hosted this phenomenal event, and everyone had an unforgettable time enjoying every single detail that surrounded this festivity. The smile reflected in our lovely duo's face evidenced the marvelous time they were having at their "big day." To relive this fantastic moment, hit the play icon below. You will be enchanted! So make sure to have your pen and notebook handy because you will want to write down some incredibly inspiring wedding ideas!
How did you meet your Groom and when did you know he was "the one"?
We met in September 2012 in university in the UK. I was an exchange student from the Netherlands and Sarthak was just starting his course. We met in the very first week of the semester and got very attached to each other during that year. We never really allowed anything to happen, since we both knew that we had to go our separate (very different) ways again fairly soon - telling ourselves that things between us could never work out... We went skydiving together at the end of the year as a cool way to say goodbye to each other. That day was magic: after jumping out of the plane we were sitting down together in the sun, our favourite song came on and in that moment we both decided we really didn’t want things to end there. We ended up doing long-distance for 7 years, traveling between London and Amsterdam, up until our wedding.
Share the scoop on your Proposal Story!
Sarthak proposed to me in the planetarium in Greenwich, London. I thought he was just taking me to the museum, but he ended up having booked the planetarium that evening just for the two of us. We had a little picnic together under the stars and planets (I was already getting a little suspicious at this point about all this romance..), at one point, a planet popped-up that slowly increased in size. That planet had the words 'Will you marry me?’ written on it. Sarthak was sitting down on one knee with a ring in his hand. It was so special. At that moment I knew we were actually going to spend the rest of our lives together - it was an explosion of emotions.
Tell us how you went about planning your wedding, and your overall experience with the Venues, Hair & Makeup, Outfits, Decor Theme, and all of the other important details.
Since we both lived abroad in separate countries (Sarthak in London en and me in Amsterdam) prior to the wedding, planning a wedding in Delhi was a bit of a challenge. Also, being from the Netherlands and never actually having experienced an Indian wedding before, I felt like I had no idea what I was doing exactly. Sarthak's family were a huge huge huge support in making everything happen and guiding me through the process.
What did your guests particularly love about your Wedding?
All the guests from the Netherlands were absolutely blown away by the 'Indian' wedding. It was three days of total joy and tireless celebration. What an experience..!
Was there a really special moment at your wedding that constantly replays in your mind?
Just the fact that both of our families and closest friends were there. Everyone united. Loving and supporting us. To me, that was what our wedding was all about. Sharing such an important moment with the most important people.
