Do you believe in fate? If not, then you’re about to. Swati and Abhishek’s love story will surely make you believe in fate. Our authentic Kashmiri bride, Swati, and the lovely groom, Abhishek’s paths crossed for the first time in college, where Abhishek was heading the Dramatics Society. However, they admit to not liking each other back then and lost touch for over 3 years. But, destiny had other plans. After losing touch for so long, they reconnected in Gurgaon when Abhishek messaged Swati to meet him. They met and bonded over their mutual love for trekking and traveling.
So, Abhishek decided to plan a trekking trip and invited Swati to join him and his friends. But, Swati soon realized that there were no ‘friends’ as he’d mentioned. Nevertheless, Swati decided to go on the trip, and when they reached the peak point, Abhishek asked her if she’d want to give them a shot. And the rest, as they say, is history. The two haven’t looked back since. Together they’ve traveled the world, climbing Mt. Fuji, a road trip to Iceland, experiencing -30 degrees in Leh, and even escaped death while sliding on the snow. All these beautiful and adventurous experiences have brought them closer to one another. However, COVID-19 their travel plans were brought to a halt, so they’ve started exploring parts of unexplored India together.
