Inside celebrity stylist Sanjana Batra’s dreamy wedding in New Delhi
With a dream bridal trousseau, celebrity guests and thousands of pastel flowers, here’s how Sanjana Batra transformed her city wedding with Awral Beri into a quaint countryside affair.
Sanjana Batra and Awral Beri’s almost-decade-long relationship was built on patience and pacing. “Although Awral and I had heard a lot about each other from our mutual friends, we never formally met. We coincidentally met in Goa in 2011, and instantly hit it off,” she reveals. Happily ever after, though, was a ways off. “After the trip, I came back to Mumbai, and he returned to New Delhi.” The two continued to remain in touch. The incessant messages and phone calls tallied their mutual connections, reinstating a sense that dating was inevitable. Still, two months would go by before the New-Delhi-based entrepreneur would ask Batra out.
Batra has worked with many celebrities over the years, including names like Athiya Shetty, Shilpa Shetty Kundra and Sanjana Sanghi. Her professional pursuits has entailed a significant amount of travelling across the world to style photoshoots and her clientele. “But I don’t think any of us meant to sign up for a long-distance relationship. Somehow, we both just knew there was something real and really solid between us. So, we shuttled between the two cities and made it work.”
