Leonardo Dicaprio to get engaged to his model girlfriend Camila Morrone!

For all those who are wondering ‘what’s next after grabbing an Oscar’ for Dicaprio, seems like getting engaged is on his cards! If the rumours are to be believed, it seems like Leonardo Dicaprio is all geared to up to kiss his bachelor days goodbye! *sobs a little* *not jealous, no not jealous*

He’s been dating Camila Morrone for 8 months now and the actor is finally ready to settle down. A source very close to the couple said to US Weekly, “They’re very in love and serious, they’ve talked about getting engaged.”

And though the model is 22 years his junior, the source adds that the hollywood heartthrob has “never loved a girl like this.” (Not even Gisele Bündchen??? Whom he dated for 5 years!!!!).

 

“He’s ready to have kids, as is she – She loves having little kids around and wants to have kids with Leo. But she wants to get married to him first. She’s very traditional in that way.”, said the source.

While a wedding may not be happening anytime soon, the pair is enjoying spending time together. Adds the source, “Cami and Leo want to have fun and are very playful.”

Well well, one can only imagine what the engagement will be like!

Although here’s hoping, the ring won’t be a ‘Blood Diamond’!

….and we can hope the bachelor party will literally be LIT!

 

Stay tuned for more updates! 🙂

Ed Sheeran is Married people and here’s proof that he found his ‘Galway Girl’!

Yes you read it right people. Ed Sheeran married his longtime girlfriend Seaborn!!! The ‘I Do’ ship had already sailed and everyone just missed it? *stares with eyes wide open*

 

 

The rumors had been doing the rounds ever since the “Perfect” singer was spotted wearing a ring on ‘the finger’ months after he announced being engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Cherry Seaborn.

 

 

Now it seems like those rumours were not actually rumours – they were the truth people. Have a look where Sheeran *might* have just confirmed the wedding:

During his sit-down interview with Access, the interviewer asked Sheeran, “So the wedding details… have you picked a date? Do you know where? Do you know when yet?” Instead of giving a verbal answer, Sheeran just shrugged and held up his hand clearly displaying a wedding band!!!! *for the love of God, WHAT??*

 

 

After a brief pause, the interviewer hilariously exclaims, “Alright! Congratulations my friend! How did you sneak that one?!”

To which Sheeran says, “Well, I never really do anything too public anyway. “The interview congratulates him again, and Sheeran thanks him, essentially confirming he, Ed Sheeran, IS A MARRIED MAN, Y’ALL! *this is not a drill??*

 

Here’s hoping he is now indeed HAPPIER!

 

Here’s imagining his and Cherry’s first dance :

 

 

Have a look at some of their pictures which will legit give you #CoupleGoals:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s wishing this couple a lifetime of togetherness and now I finally know who all the love songs will we written for!

Karan & Sonali Hua Hin : This bride’s cool, quirky and offbeat wedding themes are taking over Instagram!

Sonali and Karan, who met 6 years ago through mutual friends, just took their vows at a destination wedding at Sheraton, Hua Hin, Thailand. From quirky themes for each function to some of the most gorgeous and unique lehengas that we’ve seen, this bride’s planning pulled off the coolest wedding ever!

The Proposal

The best kind of proposals are the ones that are intimate and pulled off with the help of friends and family! Sonali says,

“We had just returned from a friend’s wedding in Dubai so I wasn’t expecting at all! My family and a few friends helped Karan organize it and while all this was being planned I was absolutely clueless. My friend had asked me to join her and
her friend she had visiting for diner at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel which has been one my favorite go to spots in Bangkok, so I was super excited. When I reached she and I was sipping on a glass of wine, waiting for her “friend” to show up, and then she slipped to the “bathroom”. Minutes later the waiter delivered 100 red roses to my table in a vase covered with pictures of Karan and I through the years and that was when I realized what was going on! He sent me a letter asking me to meet him in the garden and that was where he proposed!”

The Venue

When searching for a venue, there are several factors that come into play. While choosing her venue, Sonali, the bride says “We set for Sheraton Hua Hin Resort & Spa as we wanted a destination venue yet something close and convenient to travel from Bangkok. Also, we wanted to choose a hotel that had more experience with Indian Weddings and Sheraton Hua- Hin was definitely one of those!”

The Mehendi

“Both Karan and I wanted to wedding to reflect our personalities and vibe, which is more of the elegant, chic, and less is more vibe. For my mehndi we went with the yellow and white combination with more of the Indian décor accents. While
the welcome dinner was more a complete white theme with cabana style décor as it was placed outdoor! Unfortunately, we got rained in which was a bummer, but that is something you learn through this process that all might not go as planned but it’s the crowd and vibe that makes the party, so even though we had to execute plan B we still had a blast!” 
says Sonali

The Photo Diary by Monisha

No one can refute that one of the most important vendors in any wedding is the photographer. How else are you going to relive those amazing moments from your big day! Sonali spoke to us about choosing The Photo Diary as her photograher, “I attended an engagement in Bombay and the Photography and Videography was by The Photo Diary. That was the first time I had heard of them. I followed them for a while and really liked their work. Their work is unique to me as they are both modern and traditional with their captures and choices of music and etc. The team is also super warm easy to work with and it is obvious that they are all such creative people! I am so glad I decided to work with them it has been great!”

Dreamy right?

This bride’s completely personalized wedding outfits and the story behind is right out of a fairytale!

This is one of those love stories where the couple dreamt of their happy together forever and their wedding was just the beginning of that fairytale. Renu and Rajiv tied their knot in the most beautiful way ever and their wedding is full of all sorts of wedding inspiration! Scroll on to find out –

 

Mehendi:

 

 

Renu says “Thank you (Anita Dongre) for inspiring us to wear something that truly represents the romanticism & fairytale-like experience that we have had in our journey to be married. As two up and coming artists, it was important for us to wear something that is progressive, celebrates sustainable fashion, and represents not just the free-spirited style we both share, but something that inspires a sense of growth, light, and blooming.”

 

 

I have an entire forest living inside me and you have carved your initials into every tree. ~Pavana

 

 

Renu chose to wear an ice blue pleated lehenga skirt paired with a high-collar, V-neck choli. Rajiv on the other hand complimented her look by wearing a jacket which was totally twinning with her skirt.

 

 

Totally in love with this floral hairdo!

The Wedding:

 

This much-in-love couple tied the knot at Cox Hall Park, a gift left by the Cox family to the north side of Indianapolis.

 

And this is what the bride has to say about her bridal look – “Omg is that a red thread pierced inside your ear?!” This was the number one question I got during & after my wedding . So let’s do Story time!

 

 

I’m a Kashmiri Pandit, part of an endangered & diminishing tribe from Northern India. I wanted to honor my heritage, but not without true understanding. The mark of a Kashmiri Indian bride is a traditional ‘dejhor’, a hexagram shaped jewel, which symbolizes the union of Gods Shiv and Shakti in Hindu Mythology. They embody unparalleled strength, justice, & love. The Dejhor represents their union on a mortal plane, symbolizing how powerful love in any form can be. The dot in the center represents fixity of purpose together.

 

 

My dhejor was passed down to me by my grandmother who I grew up watching wear it everyday. This gold token with it’s tiny ruby center is more than 100 years old, but it’s significance has been buried through the years. Though many would consider it a painful inconvenience, embracing this heritage filled ornament gave me a stronger identity. In today’s world of superhero comics & Amazonian Wonder Women, I celebrate that the world we live in has a few relics of it’s own. We just have to find them & give them life 🙂 The red thread pierced in the ear cartilage represents the new bride to be. After the wedding ceremony, the red thread is replaced with a gold chain that comes from the Groom’s family. How beautiful is it that the chain & Dejhor literally represent two families tying the knot unifying two separate pieces of jewelry into one?

 

 

The lehenga:

This is a bride who is not bothered by what’s trending, but was searching for a timeless piece of clothing and that she found in this lehenga. She says, “These days there is so much pressure in the wedding industry to “get it right”. But I think it’s so important to remember who you are.

 

 

As Rajiv & I are both storytellers by passion, I knew “the dress” had to do justice to the songs & narratives that symbolize our heritage, inspirations, and future. We wanted something traditional while also contemporary and yet still timeless. When we met Sulakshana ji, her designs & craft had exactly what we were looking for. We are grateful for her striking art.

 

 

She chose to wear a blush pink lehenga because that’s her bae’s favourite colour on her. But the lehenga is way more personalized that you can say from the first glance. She explains, “Our love for Hindu mythology & the stories we heard growing up about Krishna, are represented by the peacocks. The small embroidered lotus flowers on the customized veil were personal to us because Rajiv’s name translates to lotus, which in itself is a symbol of purity. And lastly, the meticulously beaded bed of water the birds are on was magic, because not only were we married next to water bodies, it rained a lot on our wedding day. We certainly took peacocks dancing in the rain to a whole new level :)”.

 

Isn’t that the sweetest thing you heard?
