Meet Our ‘Trips Over Toasters’ Couple – Runjhun & Ankush

When you first meet Runjhun and Ankush, you get the impression that the formality and ceremony of the wedding was secondary to their enjoyment of it. An attitude we can get behind! They were looking for a way to avoid receiving tedious gifts – hideous wall clocks, numerous giant Ganeshas, and ugly lamps – and we were only too happy to help!

Making A List, Checking It Twice

Runjhun explains, “We’d heard of the concept of Wedding Wishlist all across the globe, but not in India. Then I heard from a few friends that the concept was in India as well.” The timing was perfect, and suited their needs. She says, smiling, “We think it’s worked for us.”

Not wanting to clutter their new home in Bangalore with things they didn’t really need, Runjhun said that creating a Wedding Wishlist was a simple yet effective solution. “We had the option of choosing what we needed while setting up the house. Be it the kitchen, be it the home furnishings or anything for personal use.”
