About Me
Kalki through the looking-glass

As we entered Amy Billimoria’s House of Design in Juhu, Mumbai, we knew we were not in Kansas anymore. The store exudes a happy feeling. From the décor of the store to the clothes housed within it, we could tell that this was going to be a departure from a traditional bridal makeover.

About Me
Sonam and Paras Modi share their marriage mantra…

We met at a common friend’s wedding in Lonavla, after which we started meeting almost twice a week with friends. We got along like a house on fire; it felt so comfortable talking to each other, it was like we were long lost friends. The initial courtship felt more like a game of hide and seek. We didn’t want to tell people yet as we were still getting to know each other.

Falguni and Shane Peacock on being friends forever

The designer couple is a firm believer in the principle of yin and yang and owning their differences like bosses, Falguni shares the secrets

The Love Story
Ours isn’t a big movie kind of love story. We were and are very simple people and that is how this story started too. It all began when Shane was working on some design sketches and wanted someone to paint them. With our professional relationship,even our friendship began to develop. “One fine evening after dropping me home, my mother asked Shane to join us for a cup of coffee and asked him about his thoughts on marriage,” she says, letting slip that it was her mother who actually broached the subject for them. Rather courteously, Shane told my mother that he needed some time to think. “In ever gave it much thought at the time because of our backgrounds—he’s Christian and I’m Gujarati, so I assumed my mom wouldn’t agree.” But 15 years later, here we are, happy in love and parents to a beautiful daughter, Nian.

The Apparent Trap

Jetting off to an exotic locale for your honeymoon? Here’s what you need to bear in mind to avoid the pitfalls surrounding foreign exchange

The concept of foreign exchange has always seemed like a complex maze, which has contributed to a gradual proliferation of stakeholders in foreign exchange outlets such as banks, private currency exchange and over-the-counter exchange services at airports. Apart from charging high rates laden with huge margins, these institutions keep travellers in the dark about the exchange value, which akin to stocks, change almost every second. The result is that more often than not, customers feel cheated.

Let It snow

What’s a winter wedding without some snow mimicking the icing on your three-tier cake?

There’s something undeniably perfect about sheaves of snow descending from storybook cottages, mountains and glades painted white by winter’s masterful strokes. For a couple who met during a ski trip or bonded over their shared love of icy climes, there can be nothing better than a snow-filled winter wedding. Perhaps that’s why Monaco’s royal heir Andrea Casiraghi and his wife Tatiana Santo Domingo tied the knot in a dreamy snow-themed ceremony at Gstaad, nestled in the Swiss Alps. We bring you five other destinations (in no particular order) that pay the grandest tribute to the season of hot cocoa, frosty windows and puddings.

Their story

It all started where most love stories do—in college. For him, it was love at first sight, though for me, it was gradual. We have been together for nine years and have had our share of ups and downs and also trudged through a long distance phase, twice.
