Lockdown Home Wedding: Kanika Weds Vidur in Noida
‘A couple who were always meant to be together and made it possible beautifully!’
“Love recognizes no barriers” – Maya Angelou
Sparks flew when Kanika and Vidur reconnected on Facebook after knowing each other through childhood. It was definitely love at first sight for Kanika! In time and after a couple of dates later, Vidur too realised that they share a special bond. And there was no looking back since then. After chatting for a while, he finally asked her out one day and that was the beginning of a beautiful four-year long courtship.
Traversing through the ups and downs of their long relationship, sharing and growing together over the years, marriage was the next natural progression of this beautiful chapter. Needless to say, both of them felt it in some magically silent way that the culmination of their four years of relationship should lead them into an eternal bond of being man and wife!
Vidur proposed to Kanika in the most romantic way you can imagine! To recount their memorable proposal in the lucky lady’s own words, she narrates, “ Vidur proposed to me on 5th August 2019 at 11.45pm with a dark house lit with only candles, rose petals, helium heart balloons and our pictures hanging all over. He had made a presentation of all our memorable pictures of 4 years of a relationship and went down on his knees with a diamond ring to propose to me. The best part was that both our families were hiding in the basement and popped out once the proposal was over. His gesture was very overwhelming.”
How adorable can they be!
Post their grand engagement in November 2019, Kanika and Vidur had planned an elaborate wedding which was to be attended by all their close and extended family and friends. However, on account of the global situation courtesy the pandemic, they decided to not postpone their nuptials further and with the blessings of their near and dear ones to get married at home!
Hence, began the preparation for their super intimate, memorable and meaningful home wedding at Kanika’s Noida residence. The festivities began with a small haldi ceremony in the courtyard of the house under a tree decorated with kaleere and dream catchers! Kanika kept it simple in a no-makeup look, a gorgeous yellow outfit from NEH and floral jewellery.
A local decorator was brought on board to light up the place for the mehendi function as the bride wanted it to be a colourful affair. Kanika opted for a lovely Shantanu and Nikhil outfit for this event. Sangeet was true to the spirit of a lockdown wedding with virtual performances by their closest folks.
Come d-day, it was time for their much anticipated sun-downer wedding with only 30 people in attendance. Kanika dazzled in a stunning Abhinav Mishra lehenga. The groom looked no less!
Though this was nothing like the kind of marriage they had envisioned, it was perfect nonetheless! The best part was seeing all of their loved ones from across join and cheer them via zoom. In all Kanika and Vidur’s long and intimate journey found the perfect expression in the form of their intimate lockdown wedding!
