Meet Our Always Adventurous Couple – Sudeeptha & Vishnu

There’s something to be said for finding the right person to share your life with. In Sudeeptha and Vishnu’s case, their paths crossed several times with hilarious consequences before they decided to make a go of it. Their journey together hasn’t always been easy, but this Wedding Wishlist couple are the real deal.

You’re The One That I Want

To paraphrase Shakespeare, the course of true love doesn’t always run smoothly. Vishnu says, “We could begin our story by telling you how we both knew that we were the respective ‘Ones’ for each other right from the start. We could tell you that it was love at first sight. We could tell you that ours was a beautiful romance, meant to be from the start. Of course, we would be lying through our teeth.”

Though they humorously tell friends and family that Vishnu had to ask her to marry him four times, there’s logic behind their laughter. Vishnu explains, “One of the things we both agree on is that marriage itself is a very grown up thought. I didn’t ask until I was sure I was ready, Sudeeptha did not agree until she was sure I was the one she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. Our friends all warned us that our lives were going to change, but when you meet the right person, you don’t mind that change. You don’t run away from it. You welcome it with open arms and walk into the next stage of adulthood hand in hand.”

What’s Love Got To Do With It?

Like any other couple, the two had to compromise on several things to make their relationship work. Vishnu elaborates, “Our relationship has had its rocky moments; we’ve had the traditional clashing mindsets and differing viewpoints on almost everything. Idealistic thoughts vs. more realistic ones, conforming to norms, strong individual likes and dislikes. Despite it all, as we sat through the wisecracks made by the pandits during the wedding ceremony, we both knew that we were embarking on our own little adventure and that it was going to be epic.”

 

With this strong foundation, it’s not surprising that they’re a practical couple. Their wishlist is a mix of fun decorative items and pragmatic purchases. However, there is no doubt that each piece will be used to make their new house a home.

My Wish Came True

They have favored practical items over luxury ones. Vishnu says, “Our Wedding Wishlist covered a few tools that we would need in our opening months as a married couple. We could have gone for holidays, expensive trinkets or vanity items. Instead, we put up items that we knew we would need, items which will be useful in our new lives together.”

The groom says, “We saw the Wishlist as a way to make sure that we got what we really wanted, a way for our friends and families to not have to rack their brains and end up buying us statuettes or dishes or crock pots – yes, we got many of those too. Wedding Wishlist helped us get what we want, and for that, we want to say a big thank you.”

Thank YOU for letting us be a part of your next big chapter, Sudeeptha and Vishnu. From all of us at Wedding Wishlist – Happy Valentine’s Month! May you have many more happy ones!


Meet Our Practical Magic Couple – Muthu & Rangashree

‘Practical Magic’ is a phrase that might seem like too much of a contradiction to apply to any couple. Well, Muthu and Rangashree have proved us wrong. This lighthearted and quirky couple are both pragmatic and fun – a great combination in our books!

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.”

Meet Amit and Sriranjani – Wedding Wishlist Couple

What do a film star and an RJ have in common? Well, a happily-ever-after for starters. When Amit Bhargav and Sriranjini Sundaram first crossed paths, little did they realise that it would be the start of something truly special. An aspiring actor, Amit moved to Chennai to break into films. To hone his skills, he signed up for a theatre workshop where he met Sriranjini. Their love story began with a rich and supportive friendship – the foundation upon which they’ve built their relationship. After a long courtship (across states and countries), they finally decided, as Sriranjini says, “to put a ring on it”.

Wedding Wishlist Couple: Divya & Vinaayak

There’s something magical about a love that stood the test of time and distance. Between Divya and Vinaayak, they have lived in “three continents between us” since they first met in school. They’ve come a long way from SMS-ing each other (texting, for you young ‘uns) all day (and barely being able to look each other in the eye in person). But those early 160-character love notes are what really set the course for their relationship – best friends who are also life partners. Continue Reading
