The Story

Sakshi and Varun got married in a lavish ceremony at Jumeirah at Etihad Towers. Here’s a peek into their magnificent wedding planned by Krayonz Entertainment.

Their Story

Sakshi and Varun met in 2016 through their parents in an arranged marriage setup. They took their own time to get to understand each other before they took any decision. Sakshi says, “Varun and I both wanted to break the norm of atypical arranged marriage by first establishing a good friendship and then becoming life partners. We didn’t date, but we knew each other for a while. We even lost touch for some time only to come back to each other. We met again, but this time it was without any pressure from our parents. When they finally got to know about us, we thought about making it official!”

On Diwali, Varun proposed to Sakshi in a gurudwara in the presence of their respective families and then began, preparations for the big fat Indian wedding!

The Wedding Saga

Sakshi and Varun, with the help of Krayonz Entertainment translated this moment of happiness into a celebration to be cherished by their near and dear ones. Sakshi and Varun wanted their friends and family members to come together and enjoy these 3-5 days of wedding festivities to the fullest.

The wedding festivities and functions took place in Mumbai and Abu Dhabi. From pristine beaches, regal hotels, city landscape and customized services by Krayonz Entertainment, Sakshi and Varun celebrated the wedding of their dreams in the mystical land of Abu Dhabi. This two day wedding extravaganza began with a pool party complete with entertainment, food, and dance to get everyone in a celebratory mood.
