SARIKA DEEP­RAJ, a credit risk ad­min­is­tra­tor and Lee­shaan Mekraju, sales man­ager from South­gate in Phoenix, both 25, mar­ried on June 9 at Sim­bithi Eco Es­tate in Bal­lito.

HOW WE MET

Lee­shaan and I met at a friends’ party in Phoenix two years’ ago. A week later we went on our first date. It was a Hindi movie at Gate­way.

THE PRO­POSAL AND WED­DING

Lee­shaan pro­posed at a se­cluded spot at Saf­fron Restau­rant in Coast­lands Umh­langa on March 31 last year. He had a cake made with a sign ask­ing “will you marry me”? He went down on one knee and pro­posed. I burst into tears and said yes. We had a Chris­tian cer­e­mony.

BIG­GEST CHAL­LENGE

Ev­ery­thing was a chal­lenge but I think our big­gest was hav­ing to cut down the guest list to 150.
