Our favourite moment has to be when I walked into the Darbar hall, and we both saw each other, eyes locked. We both could foresee a beautiful future in front of us. At that moment, my father, who was holding my arm, let me go with a genuine smile as he saw Arshdeep looking back at his wife-to-be.

Our wedding day was the most special day of our lives. We had our Anand Karaj at the sea-facing Gazebo at the Moon Palace, decorated with beautiful flowers and blush tones. The sea glistened as the sun shone brightly upon us, as though it was blessing us on our special day. My favourite part was when I caught a glimpse of Jaskeerat in her royal chariot.

Our wedding took place at Gurdwara Sahib Sukh Sagar in New Westminster. My favourite moment was the Anand Karaj ceremony itself. As I folded my hands in prayer and sat in the presence of Guru Granth Sahib, I was grateful to have shared in the warmth and love of Waheguruji's eternal embrace with all those present.
