Some weddings are just meant to be. They are a joy from start to finish. The little reluctance from either side vanishes the moment they get to know each other, and from then on, its sunshine and rainbows! Such is the story of our beautiful bride, Karthika and the love of her life, Karthik! Yup, you read it right! So go on now, get yourself immersed into this sweet journey that was their wedding! You will love it as much as we did!Hi everyone, I am Karthika from Coimbatore. The love of my life, my partner for life is Karthik.Ours was an arranged marriage. I met Karthik on Nov 18,2015 in a temple through our families.
I had a lot of questions in my mind before the meeting. The thought of spending my life with a stranger was scary. But the very first conversation we had and the thoughts we shared washed off the fear in me. We then decided YES, it was going to be KARTHIK and KARTHIKA. To tell you the truth, not only I, almost everyone was excited, if not a little teasing, about our names.Personally, I feel that the beauty of arranged marriage begins once you decide that he/she is going to be your soulmate. Our magical relationship then began. Our parents got busy with the various formalities that are a part of any wedding and in the meantime, we we were busy getting to know each other. Our friendship began and eventually I fell in love with him. Obviously, who would not love such a charming, lovable and caring guy.We had our ‘uruthi pechu’ function on November 27 and in about 3 months we were engaged. It was a Grand event held at Jenney’s Residency, Coimbatore on March 11 2016.
