Meet these US-based newlyweds, Arun and Roshna Prakash – they met 2 years ago in Chicago, fell in love and have been inseparable since then. Happily married now, their sangeet was one hell of an event! Arun surprised his fiance and how! Here’s what happened:
The story behind it:
For Roshana, getting married to someone who is not a potterhead was next to impossible. But as they say love is blind, and she did fall in love with Arun who didn’t know the ‘H’ of Harry Potter!
To impress his lady love, Arun watched all the HP movies. When he finally had all the information collected, he found the perfect way to surprise Roshana. He transformed the sangeet venue to a Harry-Potter themed extravaganza! Have a look below:
1. The entrance:
The ‘Roshna weds Arun’ sign-board was tastefully swapped with this board, having references that only a Potterhead would understand.
2. There were flying keys, snitches, and candles hanging from the ceiling:
3. Look at those wizard props – right out of Azkaban:
4. This is how we imagine Roshna initiated her Muggle-born husband into the magical world of Hogwarts.
We guess he belongs to Gryffindor now 😀 :
5. Gryffindor for sure!
6. They did a friendly wizard duel too! *Wingardium Leviosa*:
7. Ofcourse there was Arthur Weasley’s ingenious flying car:
8. Also, they had their very own Hogwarts Express leaving from Platform 9 ¾:
9. There was a waltzing session too – much like Harry, Ron and Hermione had with their dates at the Yule Ball!
10. We spotted Dooby too:
11. A magical moment:
12. A Game of wands? These GOT lovers had an Iron Throne built with magic wands! *can’t stop gushing*
13. Giving us major FOMO with the cake counter:
14. ….and then there were edible Golden snitches:
15. Magic potions anyone?
16. … then there was this tri-wizard cup:
17. ….and the cake:
18. They even had a guestbook with pictures of the couple inside, (total Harry Potter style) :
19. Guest Favours – All the guests who entered as muggles left as wizards:
20. They really went ALL the way!
21. Say Hi to Dobby! We think he is free because now Arun is going to be the slave (of Roshna) ;
A word from the bride, “I’m pretty sure he spent a lot of sleepless nights thinking about this and planning for this. Some of these qualities were actually what made me fall for him in the first place because I’m not a planner or surprise-giver myself. But, even otherwise, I would have happily married him sitting on our couch in our living room,”! *awwwwww*
