They both live in New Delhi and met each other through Facebook and after a brief courtship, they decided to tie the knot.

The two had come home for the wedding and everything was fixed and arranged much before the declaration of the lockdown.

The ceremony took place at Sunny’s residence and except for the immediate family members, there were no other invited guests.
