Mansi and Jujhar New Delhi Gurudwara Rakab Ganj Sahib Wedding
A beautiful love story that blossomed from friendship into an eternal partnership for life!
“Love without conversation is impossible.” – Mortimer Adler
True, isn’t it? Communication is at the core of any relationship; it can be verbal or even unspoken. When choosing your life partner, it is of utmost importance that you be able to speak, discuss, share and debate with them on every topic under the sun. Not only does this improve the quality of your relationship, but it also strengthens your bond with your partner. Simply put, you become each other’s support in life and love. There is nothing that can then shake this confidence you have in each other.
And this ‘heart-to-heart’ conversation is what made two beautiful souls – Mansi and Jujhar, to become eternal soulmates!
Speaking to the couple, one is quickly reminded of a beautiful college romance straight out of a gooey Bollywood romance. Mansi and Jujhar met in college. Jujhar, a BCom Honours student was a part of the photography society and met Mansi, an Economics Honours student when she auditioned for the same. Little did they know that this audition would become the turning point in their lives!
“We felt an instant connection and soon became really close. Amidst long conversations and many, many hangouts we never really realised how strongly we felt for each other. Finally, when we were attending a fest in our college, we confessed our love for each other and that’s when all the magic began! The best part is, we could and still can be our goofiest selves with each other,” says Mansi.
“In fact, I always thought that there can’t be anything more than friendship between us, but our feelings were undeniable. There was something so pure and special about our relationship.”
Clearly, this couple was meant to be! Here’s a sneak peek into their pre-wedding photoshoot –
And obviously, their families were more than happy to become one just like the happy couple! However, before formalising all the wedding plans, there had to be a fantastic proposal! And Jujhar wasted no time in planning a super-duper surprise.
Birthdays are special, right? They are even more special when you get proposed to on your special day with your closest friends and family witnessing your new beginnings! “I, like any other girl, had imagined and dreamt of my perfect proposal. When Jujhar and I completed 5 years, I knew that he was the one but I never thought that our proposal would be so special.”
Jujhar, the hero of our story couldn’t have picked a better day or date to propose to his beloved. It was Mansi’s 24th birthday and the party was held on her terrace with all their friends and family present. It was obviously a special celebration but Jujhar took it to another level as Mansi was getting ready to cut her birthday cake. The magic began when the song ‘Tum Jab Paas’ by Prateek Kuhad began playing and a surprised Mansi turned around, she saw Jujhar on his knees with a ring! “My heart was racing. He asked me if I wanted to spend my entire life with him and all I could say was a definite YES! I was so overwhelmed and emotional…” says Mansi.
Well, this proposal definitely set the ball rolling and they decided to tie the knot on 2nd March 2020.
Planning the Wedding
Now planning a wedding is no easy task and planning it in four months even more so! “It’s not an easy task to manage work and wedding planning simultaneously. There were days when we used to be exhausted but what kept us going was the constant support from families and friends. They really helped us through the whole process,” says Mansi. The good part was that they both had divided the responsibilities. Jujhar decided the locations for the pre-wedding shoot while Mansi selected all wedding outfits for both. “We both together decided the songs we want to perform on, and even we decided the specific songs for how our entry will happen, etc. Also, our families had a major role in wedding planning. A very big thank you to them!”
The couple made sure to plan and schedule their whole week beforehand and ensure all appointments for trials and testing were placed efficiently. It all began with a lot of research and surfing on all social media platforms. “A huge shoutout to Weddingz.in for being the perfect platform for wedding planning. As we’re writing this, we are recalling what all went in the entire process of planning. Choosing among some of the best makeup artists, decorators etc was a tough call. But somehow, we knew who we wanted, who would match the kind of vibe we are looking for our wedding.”
And before we proceed, here’s a video you must-watch!
Selecting the Vendors
“Mansi was always confident that she wants her wedding day makeup done by Pooja Khurana and I went back and forth to finalise my wedding outfit but now I know Khanijo was the perfect pick,” says Jujhar. “For my other functions, it depended on what kind of look I wanted for myself. For example, I wanted a bold and glamorous look on cocktail function and chose Pritika Keswani for that after a lot of research through social media. For my engagement, I went for Samaira Sandhu for a subtle and elegant look! Also, my most favourite look is my wedding look, without any doubt,” says Mansi.
For her mehendi, Mansi got hers done by ace mehendi artist Arpit. “After a lot of searches on Instagram and a lot of pictures saved in my gallery, I finally decided to get a personalised mehendi.”
Her mehendi design had a Sardar and Sardarni portrait and their wedding hashtag #MannSeJujhar was beautifully displayed in the mehendi.
The couple had many ceremonies and the festivities kicked off with their Roka which was an intimate family affair. For this ceremony, Mansi wore a stunning pale turquoise blue sharara with a gota embroidered kurta and sharara pants in the same colour. She kept her look simple yet stunning with minimal makeup and matching OTT jhumkas. Jujhar complemented his bride by wearing a pale turquoise blue turban and looked every bit dapper in a black shirt paired with trousers.
The Engagement Ceremony
The ceremony was their engagement ceremony. For this event, Mansi wore a stunning pale pink contemporary lehenga with delicate multi-coloured bead embroidery. She completed her look with flawless makeup and donned a stunning pair of polki and emerald chandelier earrings with a matching choker in emeralds and polki. Again, the man of the hour, our groom, Jujhar looked every bit handsome in a bottle green suit with a pale pink turban and a matching floral tie. The highlight of the evening was Mansi’s beautiful performance for her beloved that wowed one and all!

The highlight of the evening was a surprise video for the lovely bride where her old family and new family spoke about how lucky they were to have her!
Now, we must say this – each and every ensemble the couple chose for each of their ceremonies was very well-thought-out. The cocktail ceremony saw the stunning couple look even more fabulous! Mansi stunned in a gorgeous ruffled gown in red with hints of fuchsia pink by ace designer Sulakshana Monga. She completed her look with diamond jewellery that had us drooling all over…
Jujhar matched her in a white blazer paired with black trousers and a red turban. Truly, this couple is absolutely made for each other!
And yet again, the couple turned out hearts into a must with this brilliant cocktail teaser!
The Mehendi Ceremonies!
Now there were two mehendi ceremonies – a sundowner mehendi party and a girls’ mehendi function. For the sundowner, Mansi wore a beautiful Aisha Rao creation in neon green. She paired her outfit with her hair worn down in curls, decked in wildflowers and floral jewellery in pink and white. Now the groom (we love this look of his!) matched his bride in a mango yellow kurta and a cream bandi jacket with mango yellow motifs on it. As it was a day event, the overall vibe, like the colours, were all bright and vibrant with a lot of florals and balloons thrown in!
For the girls’ mehendi ceremony, Mansi wore a beautiful blue lehenga with floral embroidery and completed her look with a cute pink dupatta in contrast. She wore matching floral jewellery. While this was a fun event with family, Jujhar had to do something out-of-the-box!
“All of the groom’s side, on the night when I was at my place applying mehendi, arrived with a bash at my place with 25-30 people at 11:30 PM at night, and all of them wearing matching ‘Team Groom’ t-shirts with our caricature photo! They also got Dhol-wallas along with them and woke up the whole lane with their cheers and dancing! It was a surprise that me and I would say my entire family would never forget…” says Mansi.
Chooda and Haldi
The Chooda and haldi ceremony were intimate functions on both sides. Both Mansi and Jujhar were surrounded by their loved ones.
Mansi and Jujhar solemnised their wedding at the Gurudwara Rakab Ganj Sahib, New Delhi. In recent times, we have seen many brides move away from wedding lehengas and opt for sarees, suits and even ghararas. Mansi is one such bride who opted for a unique wedding outfit 😊
For their Sikh wedding, Mansi wore a stunning lavender and green embroidered gharara by Tamanna Punjabi Kapoor. Not to miss the ‘wow’ polki jewellery – the heavy choker necklace, chandbali jhumkas, maangtikkas and passa!
