Real Couple Tales: UAE Radio Presenter & Blogger Tamanna Wahi’s Roka (Engagement) Ceremony in Dubai!

Ajayjit Singh runs a family business and Tamanna Wahi is a Radio Presenter with Radio Mirchi UAE & award winning UAE based blogger.

Tamanna’s version:

“Mein tera boyfriend, tu meri girlfriend, oh meinu keindi, na-na-na-naa”

The song was blaring in the background as we first locked our gaze upon each other and felt the electricity in the air. “Was this the same boy who I have considered my family friend since 20 years?” I caught myself thinking as he caught my hand and twirled me away from our friends on his 28th birthday.

And just like that, a dramatic series of events began to unfold as we told both our mothers (who are in fact best friends since 20 years) and witnessed the transformation of their initial panic and resistance into the full acceptance and delight of both families.

The Engagement:

Our Roka (engagement) ceremony was initiated with a humble request for blessings of the almighty at the Guru Nanak Darbar in Jebel Ali, Dubai and climaxed in typical Punjabi fashion with celebrations continuing over the next two days!

With the Roka ceremony completed, both families made their way to the Roda Murooj Hotel opposite Dubai Mall to kick off a suave cocktail party and welcome the couple amongst all their close friends and family. The night was hosted by the entire Radio Mirchi UAE team and DJ Gautam (Resident DJ for AKS nights) kept the dance floor burning into the wee hours of the night. Chef Pradeep Khullar from Jodhpur restaurant, took meticulous care to ensure every guest enjoyed his award winning selection of exotic food and beverages. The cake featured a mini version of the couple as they looked on the day, thanks to Sugaholic Dubai.

Who can ever be satisfied with just one cocktail party? The next day, we invited the extended groups of dear friends and family who couldn’t be with us in Dubai to join us for dinner and drinks at the Singh’s residence in Abu Dhabi.

We’ve now got a big fat wedding to plan, which is scheduled for early next year, and my closest friends from school are flying me out to Prague and Budapest for my bachelorette. You can follow the rest of our journey and catch these precious moments on our wedding hashtag #AjKiTamanna. Cheers!
