Lucky are those who find a best friend, a lover and a soulmate, luckiest are those who find all three in one. Aamna and Amit belong to this exclusive club and 24 hours after they tied the knot, we present this wedding trailer.
It’s true that the unparalleled kind of relationships, the ones that linger a lifetime are customarily rooted in friendship.There's that moment of revelation, when you look at the other person, the one with whom you shared everything under the sky, your dreams, your fears, your chimeras, your heartaches and you know nothing will ever be the same.
The person who has always just been a friend and suddenly, the only one you can ever imagine yourself with.There are no more words. The stars begin to shine. The birds warble. The roses bloom. A friendship that is now metamorphosed into love, a love that's always been right in front of you, that is all. You affiliated, you entranced, you dazzled each other. You reveled in your greatest victories, divulged the most fatal of your flaws. You illuminated their soul and shined on each other like the brilliance of a thousand fiery blazes.
Aamna and Amit's wedding exemplified just that, a carousel laced with five days of magnetic magic and madness, brimming with fun and friendships that adorn the promise of forever, and laden with an overwhelming sea of absolute love and laughter that washed everyone over.
In this tide, Aamna glittered and glowed, as if something lit from within, something inextinguishable in the presence of Amit - something passionate, something as overpowering as LOVE.
n the moonlight of this infectious, glorious love we at THE WEDDING STORY invite you to witness their moments of bliss in this film titled "SHINE ON".
June 2012 saw the glitzy Bollywood wedding of Hema Malini’s daughter Esha Deol who tied the knot with Sindhi Jeweller Bharat Takhtani at the ISKCON Temple in Juhu, Mumbai. In this highlight film, we showcase the journey of the two souls towards each other till fate got and knot them together.
The wedding was conducted as per South Indian traditions, the decor was in orange and green, and a host of carnatic musicians performed while the couple engaged in the rituals over three hours. Father Dharmendra looked very happy while Hema Malini and her two daughters glowed in kanjeevaram sarees and yellow gold jewellery.
A host of luminaries from the world of bollywood, business and politics were there. Amitabh Bachchan came with son Abhishek. Nita Ambani was accompanied by her sister and mother-in-law Kokilaben Ambani.
Salman Khan, Madhuri Dixit, Sridevi, Sushmita Sen, Kajol, Vidya Balan, Anupam Kher, Bappi Lahiri, L K Advani, Sushma Swaraj, Rekha, Raj & Uddhav Thackeray, Abhay Deol, Ranveer Singh and many more celebrities also joined in the celebrations and blessed the couple.
Guests were given a beautifully made silk batwas containing coconut and beetle leaves (the traditional give-away at auspicious occasions in South India), sandal wood incense sticks and wedding savories & sweets like Adirsam.
Days after the wedding, the TWS team interviewed close family and friends of the couple to finally produce this rare film of love and compassion. Esha was gracious enough to give us some rare childhood images of herself and Bharat and animatedly recounts their fateful first meeting in school. The handsome Dharmendra and the 'Dream Girl' Hema Malini are a treat to watch as they reveal their 'dad' and 'mom' sides in this footage!
Enjoy the 17-minute film and let us know how you like it. Don't miss the last "Then & Now" section just before the credits...
You may live oceans apart; but its the journey that brings two souls together. In the words of our gorgeous bride, "....By not letting our egos overcome us, and embracing who we were... its when without asking you get every thing - that is love...". And with every small step, you come One Step Closer.
This is a tale of cultural diversity and contrasting personalities united in that timeless bond we call blissful life.
Only once in your life, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you.
When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around.
You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face.
In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do.
Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end.
Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life and that in this life and in the next, the magic of their soul will continue to illuminate yours.
This film is a reflection of the purity and faith that Salloni and Shrenik share with each other. It is this purity that keeps the magic of their relationship alive.
Stay precious NOW & FOREVER...

- Sunny M Ramani
For Neha, Sunny came into her life as a mirror of herself. They made a strikingly similar couple and he showed her everything that was holding her back, brought to her attention the little but significant things that changed her for the better and revealed another layer of herself. They completed each others' sentences and instinctively understood the other person.
In their nine month courtship, his love melted her and she basked and blossomed into a person she never knew existed inside her. For her, it was truly the sunny side of her life and this was just the beginning…
For The Wedding Story team, this film trailer has been a record of sorts. Our editors sat throughout the wedding celebrations to cut this film which we proudly showcased on the last day of the wedding to an ecstatic audience. Do let us know if you like this soulful love story. Plug in your ear-phones in your devices to get a truly dolby version of the music.
This is what unfolded in an eventful week filled with magical joys and tears in a fairy tale setting of that lake side hotel - which would be the venue for a very memorable heart-warming wedding celebration. Everyone kept telling us that he completes her and she blooms in his presence, but does that happen really? Well it did - what was captured during the course of this special feature, was truly a spell-bounding story.
It had to be a violet sparkling entrance leading to the Bombay Broadway stage, with the passage dressed with hand picked orchids. As we entered the first function, it felt those purple buds had been nurtured for this special day, and orchestrated to represent two tightly held hands promising never to let go of each other. It was the day of the Engagement, not just that regular exchanging of two carefully chosen wedding bands, but a show of communion beautifully painted on the canvas of true love. He looked in to her eyes, and she melted and her innocent smile won his loving family.
Till yesterday, her family was concerned about her reserved nature and shy behavior - Would she ever enjoy life without hesitation? Will a a prince walk into her life and show her the true meaning of letting go?
Who would have thought this wish would come true and her pure heart coupled with his free-spirited nature would make such a soulful pair. As we realize that they were never really opposite personalities, together you and I will discover those hidden similarities, which makes this story even more happily ever after. The week that ensured that every foot moves to the joyous melodies of this rhapsody of togetherness and no one leaves their reception without a taste of what a true celebration really means.

WHEN YOU HAVE A LOVE SO SPECIAL
THAT YOU CANT EVER GIVE UP
WHEN YOUR LOVE FIGHTS FOR ACCEPTANCE
THE STRUGGLES ARE PERFECTLY WORTH IT
TRUE LOVE WILL TRIUMPH IN THE END
IF IT IS A LIE, IT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL LIE WE HAVE
After a long courtship involving considerable convincing by the couple to their families, Karan & Neha's love story took a beautiful turn as they eventually got married amid royalty at a destination wedding in Jaipur. This is their wedding trailer -- WE ONE - AT LAST!
Any guesses as to where we took inspiration from for some of these photographs?
When super-model and the ravishing Shonal Rawat decided to tie the knot with Dubai based entrepreneur Karan Wats, it was bound to be one helluva good-looking wedding.
The girls’ side comprised primarily of possibly every model that had walked the ramp at the fashion weeks. And the hunks in the opposite group just couldn’t seem to get enough of the pretty action.
The party animals got down to brass tacks and what followed were two days of incessant dance, madness and masti.
After all, it was the wedding of their best friend and one of the nicest and most loved models of the country – Way to go Shonal!
When Kh(U)shbu and Kev(I)n got engaged, it was a day of celebration for many families and cousins.
From well known comedians to Indian Idol singers, the evening was filled with the sounds of laughter, dance, color and music.
The bonds of family were truly on display at this special occasion where everyone had gathered to bless the young couple.
Nancy and Karan started as off childhood friends and later fell in love along the journey of life as they saw and believed in each other through life’s ups and downs. Their love is best summarized in these words --
“We waited ten long years
For the sounds of wedding bells
In all this time, you brought me around… Everyday, every hour… When life got me down
When I think of love, I think of you You are my world and best friend too.”
