Weddings by Garema Kumar
Year 2005, I finished schooling from Spring-dales in Delhi and the cocoon of being protected was suddenly sprung open, I always believed that I am " One of a Kind" but had no clue how?
I dreaded Monotony and did not want to do what everybody did, hence always found a way to be different. I was found more in extra curricular activities than in my classes, hence when came the time to enter college , I did not want to go to yet another regular course. That is when my journey into events began. I took to working on the weekends to earn pocket money and break the monotony of college and in no time I figured that Event Management was the way forward for my Career.
In 2008 I moved to Pune to study events as my post graduation subject and started working into fundraising events , during my tenure in Pune I fell in love with the idea of Destination weddings and since then there has been no looking back.
After working for Concern India Foundation, India Wedding Planner, Back 2 Culture, X factor Weddings, The Shaadi Company I finally started Q & A Weddings in 2015 and acquired it under weddings by Garema Kumar in 2016.
My 10 + Years Experience in the Industry taught me a few very important things in life :-
1. The longest distance to travel is the 1 feet between Heart and Mind.
2. Time is the only real currency.
3. There is no Glass ceiling and there are no boundaries, Its a box inside your head.
Once I was able to comprehend these principals into my life, my clients were extended families and I can now boast over 150 such extended families across the world.
GKWW for me is just about curating that fairy tale wedding you grew up dreaming about and the Prince Charming who came on the white horse through the window to take you away.
