Yash & Prakriti's Wedding in Dubai, UAE
From Glasgow to India to finally Dubai, Yash & Prakriti’s love story really stood the test of time!
How we met:
I’ve been born and brought up in Dubai, and he is from Mumbai. We met in Glasgow, where we were studying. After he moved back to India, we were in a long distance relationship for a long time, and it was a really testing time for both of us. Yash finally got his dream job and moved to Dubai.
Our theme for our Save The Date was also planned accordingly – incorporating the Dubai and Mumbai Skyline, and the wedding date – “17.7.17”.

It was stressful, as we planned the entire wedding on our own.
