Wedding Story of Shevanti & Suraj

November 29, 2018 1:10 pm



  • Your initial meet. How did it happen?

I was 15 years old and he was 18 on our way for tuition classes and we use to see each other while we usually pass by. My Best friend had a major crush on him and I couldn’t stand him because I thought he had a major attitude. 

  • Who made the first move? How? Him.

My bestie on and off use to keep in touch  with him via phone as friends (She use to tell me that he never responds to calls or text messages)  after around & months she has randomly asked him if he's interested in any girl and he has said no and then she has asked if he’s interested in me and he has responded after  mins saying YES. (I had no clue about this conversation). 

However, I was not allowed to own a cell phone back then hence she called me and ask me to visit her to tell me about a special person who likes me. It was the 30th of June 2007 and as I entered her room she gave me the cell phone saying “Suraj wants to talk to you” I went blank and he just asked me out and I couldn’t reply cause I was so excited and worried at the same time but then the face of my bestie made me say okay.


  • What was your first impression about your spouse?
I was 15 then so I thought that He was really cute and at the same time I thought that he had an attitude but then “The attitude part was completely wrong” anyone who knows him adores him where ever he goes. 

  • In what ways are you most alike?

The way we treat people around us, Hospitality, Sense of fashion/Style, Travelling, acting crazy together & Music Lovers.  


  • What's your most memorable date? Why?

Every day was and will always be memorable with him. Spending time together always makes us feel like home. 

  • Three Things You Love And Hate About Your Partner.

Very Sportive
People Person 
Lives by good values 

The fact that 
he’s sacred of animals, the fact that he LOVES watching any sport 24/7 on TV, the fact he snores so loud. 


  • How did the proposal happen?

On our 10th year love anniversary 30th June 2017 he surprised me and we fixed our wedding date on the 30th June 2018. 

  • If The Proposal Was A Surprise, On A Scale Of 10 How Well Did It Go? 

It’s a definite 10 

  • What Are You Most Looking Forward To As Mr. And Mrs.?  

Being Loyal to each other and live life with good values enjoying the good times and overcoming the bad times together till death do us apart. 



  • Most memorable moment from your wedding?

The first look as we couldn’t bare the happiness looking at each other with tears reminiscing the hard times and the good times after 11 Years ready to live life together.

  • If you could describe your wedding day using one word, what would it be?



  • What's been the most fun detail of your wedding to plan?

The attires and the Deco as everything was designed and planned by us! 

  • What's Been The Most Difficult Detail Of Your Wedding To Agree Upon? 

The weather & deciding the invitees 




  • Where did you go for your honeymoon?


  • What is your idea of, “and they lived happily ever after”?

Overcoming hardship/disagreements together and being grateful by cherishing the little things that we don’t realize that has so much of sacrifices, commitment & Love.  

Most of us think “ They Lived Happily Ever After”: means happy photographs and smiles on their faces when they get the best gift in the world to their loved one and post them on social media is everything BUT what really matters is how you make an effort, in reality, to sustain that happiness not only with monitory or physical things but specially spiritually by giving priority to him/ her in anything you do in life.

  • What has surprised you the most during the first few weeks/Months of being married? 

That he cooked for me when I got home after work. (His Mother almost got a heart attack: She Said laughing that he doesn’t even know how to light up a gas cooker!)

  • Who’s good at forgetting and better at forgiving?
