Surveen Chawla is in a happy space, professionally as well as personally! The versatile actor exchanged vows with entrepreneur Akshay Thakker in 2015 in Italy, which was revealed recently.
It’s learned that Surveen met Akshay through a common friend in 2013 and soon after, they fell in love. They got married in 2015, with only family and a handful of friends in attendance. It was Surveen’s dream to have a white wedding in a chapel located in a picturesque castle and Italy seemed like an apt choice.
From clothes to the décor, from invites to the wedding destination, Surveen personally planned and designed everything according to their taste…They wanted it to be royal yet simple.
Surveen informs, “I handpicked and curated everything myself personally. In fact, I wanted everything to have a personal touch as It was an extremely personal affair and I was hands-on everything. While working and honoring work commitments, I was also getting things arranged simultaneously.”
She reveals “We handpicked, decided and decoded everything ourselves. The location, Castel Brando, in the Veneto region located in Northern Italy, had a chapel inside which was a rare find and it felt as though it was almost tailor-made for us. We had the entire castle to ourselves for the span of the wedding”.
Sharing details, she adds, “It was a 2-day affair, starting with the night prior to the ceremony, where all friends and family had prepared a sort of a Show(skit) for us. The next morning was the symbolic ceremony where we exchanged vows. After which we had a luncheon followed by an evening reception where close friends n family gave their speeches and ended it with Punjabi Bollywood dance night!“
We wanted it to be a very low key private and personal affair like I always dreamt of. We kept it private for a while and were waiting for the right time to announce, which couldn’t have been more perfect than to bring in this New Year. says Surveen excitedly.
