Beautiful Engagement of Hansini and Nelushan

Tell us a little about you two and how did you two meet?

Nelushan and I were friends for more than 6 years but I didn’t know he always had this special concern for me. Back in 2015 during my university final year research, as a senior, he started “specifically” helping me and successfully became one of my closest friends. We talked daily after that. Soon after my final exams, we talked for 2 days at a stretch and out of nowhere he asked: “would you love to be my girlfriend?”. As far as I know, I didn’t say Yes that day, but eventually, we started dating. We both had our plans so we moved to Australia in separate times. After all these years, 2019 January 14th he took me out on a picnic overlooking Sydney harbour bridge and opera house and in the sunset he proposed with a beautiful ring and I said yes. Then we told our parents and made this engagement official on 11th March with the blessings of our families.

What a wonderful story, Was the planning hard? How did you plan this function?

Actually, I started planning after January because I had an exam. First, we looked into a date and decided that we are doing a small dinner function only for close family and friends.

Then we listed down the things that we wanted on that day, prior to that day and afterwards. Next, we determined the budget and asked for quotations from the vendors and that’s where THE REAL WEDDING TALK page was useful to the maximum. Then we shortlisted our desired vendors and contacted them.

The registration process was solely handled by my dad. My fiance went to Sri Lanka one week earlier than me and arranged his side documents because we are from two different provinces.
Soon after I arrive the next day I went to the registrar and signed the initial documents with my parents as a witness and send those documents to the groom’s side. and within two days he brought his documents and we handed over those to my registrar for special house permission and that was the end of the hassle.
I went home only for one week so I always had a list on my phone where I should be and what I should do at what time each day. everything was perfectly planned and set for every hour of the day.
In the end, it was amazingly stress-free for me because I had my parents and my fiance around me helping me all the time.

MUA Subhash K Nayanajith
One of the best selections I’ve made so far. He is helpful and kept communicating with me to get the best out of our ideas. His sense for what I had in my mind perfectly replicated on that day. It wasn’t stressful or demanding. Photos here speak how great his work was also the makeup and hair lasted all day long and I was feeling super fresh.

Tell us about the vendors you chose. How were they helpful?

Photography by Eliya Davide Rodrigo
He is the best to work with. Such a wonderful personality who will make you feel easy and make you laugh and never stress. He has the sense of artistic photography as soon as he sees the location so do not hesitate to choose him to make your day memorable. The best thing is throughout the whole planning process, since the day one we contacted him, he communicated with us clearly and valued our opinion.

Photo location Ayana Lake 
Located in Ruskin Island and the resort gave a refreshing gateway than what we see usual. Full of greenery. Loved it.
Cake by Aruni’s Kitchen
I placed the order three days before my engagement and still, she delivered a delightful cake with fresh flowers exactly in my colour palette. The cake was yummy and also eye-catching.

Bouquet by Jayani Flora
I always wanted a unique bouquet and I was searching all over Pinterest and finally set my eye on this burgundy-hued bouquet and I exactly got what I wanted.

Dressmaking by Hashan Dayananda
I only had three days to stitch my Kandyan and Hashan did a miracle of delivering a perfect fit and satisfying outfit within the limited time. Easy to work with and work in a timely manner.
