Planning Anushka-Virat’s Wedding
Tina, along with her team, planned the wedding of Anushka Sharma and Virat Kohli. When asked how she landed up the project, Tina said,
We landed Anushka and Virat’s wedding as we have been acquaintances from previous professional ventures, and they were generous enough to give a relatively new player like us such a huge chance. Later on, Priyanka’s team got in touch with us and we helped execute Priyanka and Nick’s engagement ceremony and party, so this one was completely organic. The fact that we had dealt with a celebrity wedding of such a scale before and had been able to keep things fully under wraps would perhaps have been instrumental in us landing Peecee’s events.”
Brain Behind Priyanka-Nick’s Engagement
After successfully executing the Anushka-Virat’s marriage, Tina was contacted by Priyanka’s squad to execute the engagement bash. Tina disclosed that the N and P emblem at Priyanka’s and Nick’s engagement got finalised at the last minute. The logo was finalised at 10 pm one night and was put up by 7 am the next day.
