Surveen Chawla is in a happy space, professionally as well as personally! The versatile actor exchanged vows with entrepreneur Akshay Thakker in 2015 in Italy, which was revealed recently.
It’s learnt that Surveen met Akshay through a common friend in 2013 and soon after, they fell in love. They got married in 2015, with only family and a handful of friends in attendance. It was Surveen’s dream to have a white wedding in a chapel located in a picturesque castle and Italy seemed like an apt choice.
From clothes to the décor, from invites to the wedding
destination, Surveen personally planned and designed everything according to
their taste...They wanted it to be royal yet simple.
Surveen informs, “I handpicked and curated everything
myself personally. In fact, I wanted everything to have a personal touch as It
was an extremely personal affair and I was hands-on everything. While working
and honouring work commitments, I was also getting things arranged simultaneously.”
She reveals “We handpicked, decided and decoded everything ourselves. The location, Castel Brando, in the Veneto region located in Northern Italy, had a chapel inside which was a rare find and it felt as though it was almost tailor-made for us. We had the entire castle to ourselves for the span of the wedding”.
Sharing details, she adds, “It was a 2 day affair,
starting with the night prior to the ceremony, where all friends and family had
prepared a sort of a Show(skit) for us ..The next morning was the symbolic
ceremony where we exchanged vows. After which we had a luncheon followed by an
evening reception where close friends n family gave their speeches and ended it
with Punjabi Bollywood dance night!“
"I couldn’t have asked for a better partner, a
companion who makes me a better person with every passing day. Being in love
feels beautiful! Being married......even more!!!You just know it instantly when
it feels right!
We wanted it to be a very low key private and personal
affair, like I always dreamt of. We kept it private for a while and were
waiting for the right time to announce, which couldn’t have been more perfect
than to bring in this New Year. Seeking the love and blessings of all my
well-wishers and fans to celebrate the most precious day of my life with
them," says Surveen excitedly.
