This is Ikki and Maneet’s story. When we heard it we knew we needed to create a special film for them.
The two met at a family member’s birthday party and after their first date they knew they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together. They didn’t waste any time and on their fourth date they were engaged and planning to get married.
We decided that a concept shoot was the way forward to showcase their love and together with our good friend and photographer, Rahul Khona from F5 Photography, we started planning a little getaway to Cornwall where we spend time getting to know the couple and getting some gorgeous footage. We decided that the best person to tell their story was the groom himself, so we invited Ikki to come down to our studio to record the voiceover and to get some shots of him writing the card you see in the film. This was all done without Maneet knowing as we wanted to surprise her with Ikki’s letter on the day of the wedding and have some scenes in the film that she didn’t know about.
The wedding took place at Southall Gurdwara where Ikki made a grand entrance on horseback and the two officially got married. Their reception took place at Novotel in Hammersmith where Becky from Floco did an amazing job with the flowers and décor. The guests had the party of a lifetime thanks to the talented Kudos Entertainment who DJ’ed until the early hours of the morning.
