Anika and Mayaz were introduced by their fathers. Although their fathers were friends for years, Anika and Mayaz never met. They had a long distance relationship considering Anika was in Bangladesh and Mayaz was in Singapore and they constantly talked over the phone. After a couple of weeks or so they had madly fallen in love with each other and decided to tie the knot.
This cake by Punizz Kitchen is so creative.
Their proposal is perfectly explained by Anika "It was hilarious! Mayaz was in his office chatting to me on Facebook. All of a sudden he asked me to be his better half. Talk about romantic environment; dinner, rose, dressing up and what not and here I was getting proposed via Facebook when I was still in my pajamas!
We still think it's romantic! and definitely a story to make the grankids chuckle in years time. A story which also highlights the convenience of modern day technology. Imagine how hard it was for our parents.
Anika and Mayaz had five fun-filled colourful events, planned within four months and all their precious memories were captured between two of the best photographers in Bangladesh. Their Paan Chini/Engagement, Gaye Holud and Wedding Reception was captured by The Dream Catchers. Their Gaye Holud and Wedding Reception was also captured by Reminiscence Photography. Their Wedding Ceremony and Mehndi were captured by Flare Photography.
To add personal touches to the wedding, Anika and her family chose not to hire a wedding planner. Instead the whole thing was planned by her, her family and her in-laws. Ultimately their weddings were Pure Bengali themed which were cosy and warm.
What was your favourite song played at your wedding? "Not played! My husband sang 'Toke Putuler Moto Kore Shajiye' for me on stage. That was my favourite moment!"
From the photos it is evident that everyone got involved in the celebrations in song at all the events. Definitely would be out favourite part too!
We love this color and how it hasn't been overdone in Bangladeshi weddings
