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.

Read about ​YouTube personality Malvika Sitlani’s exotic proposal story!

Having recently returned from a life-changing vacation, the duo reflects on their decade-long journey that’s been sweetened by the proposal of a lifetime

Theirs is a true coming-of-age romance. It has all the markings of a millennial relationship— from teenage love to long distance anxiety, hitting rough patches to finding each other only to never let go. Over the past couple of years, content creator and Youtube personality, Malvika Sitlani, and her beau Akhil Aryan, have grown together—personally and professionally.

 

The plan

Four months in the making, Aryan wanted nature to be the backdrop of their big moment. “Our love for travel took us to Greece this year,” shares Sitlani. Aryan contacted a photographer based in Santorini, who in turn enlisted a local planner to help pull off this event. “While conducting my research, I fell in love with the pictures of Santorini’s sunset. I wanted to propose at a time and place that showcased the sunset in all its glory. The planner eventually found me a beautiful place—a windmill villa (El Viento, Santorini) at the edge of the cliff just overlooking the caldera of Megalohori,” shares Aryan. While working with the planner, Aryan realised that the proposal was lacking a personal touch, and so, took over the reins. “I directly reached out to the owner of the villa who gave me a package deal that included a dinner at the villa with a private butler. I also wanted fireworks to be a part of our special moment for which, the owner had to seek special permissions.”

The proposal

On the appointed day, a blindfolded Sitlani was led by Aryan to the villa where he signalled the photographer and videographer of their arrival. “When we reached the location, one of my favourite songs, Say You Won’t Let Go, was playing. The location was decorated with candles that outlined the shape of a heart along with a white arch draped with flowers and a private dining table with flowers and a picture of us,” reveals Sitlani, adding, “Over the years, I had told him that whenever he did decide to propose, I wanted it to be grand with a video of the proposal.” Taking into account all her wishes, Aryan even wore a lapel mic to ensure that every word he said was recorded.

Tip of love

“Make sure that it’s big, extravagant and done well!” exclaim the duo, who also feel that it’s a moment which you will cherish and remember forever. More often than not, your partner is expecting an outstanding and intimate proposal. Aryan recommends a planner, as s/he can provide assistance and clarity since making all the decisions can be tedious, confusing and stressful.
