My wedding tale: Paris Lakshmi

 16-Mar-2016    By  Weddingstreet 

Love can perform wonders; especially when you fall in love at first sight. And the fulfillment of that love will make you felt as if you were in a dream. Such a love attained fulfillment on September 14, 2012 at Vaikom Mahadeva Temple. When Kathakali artist Sunil garlanded his beloved Mariam Sofia Laxmi aka Paris Laxmi, it was the fulfillment of their more than 10-year-old love affair.

The story goes back to 1998 when Laxmi, a Bharathanatyam danseuse, visited Kerala with her parents. They happened to watch the Kathakali performance of Sunil at Fort Kochi. Laxmi was 7-year-old then. After the performance, when Sunil came out of the stage, the little lass snatched the chutty on the sly from him and ran away. Recalling those days,

Laxmi confesses that she fell in love with him at first sight then! The story reminds us of actor Suhasini's character, who falls in love with the Kathakali artist after watching his performance, in the film Vanaprastham. 
Love and love only

She says that it was difficult for them to communicate each other as there were not many facilities available then. The family arrived in Kerala in 2007 for a short visit and used to come to watch his stage performance. In those days, both of them got to know each other well. In the same year, Sunil got an opportunity to visit France. Love bloomed between them during the two-month-long stage programme.

Back in India, both of them acted in an ad film of Rosha Eye Care. Laxmi is an alumnus of Nruthodiya in Chennai. In 2009 she performed Bharathanatyam at Vaikom Mahadeva Temple, Guruvayur and Chidambaram.
Finally, in 2010 Sunil expressed his wish to marry her. But even then Laxmi asked him for some time to ponder over it (though she was waiting to hear it from him). From 2011 onwards they had been performing in France. Laxmi has performed classical fusion dance.

Wedding
Their wedding was held according to the Hindu tradition. The bride looked fabulous in her red sari draped in more of a North Indian/Hollywood style. The gold ornaments for the wedding were purchased from Chennai. The bride had no makeup artist to doll up her. Instead Laxmi did it for herself.

Sunil was looked handsome in his traditional Kerala dhothi and Loui philippi shirt, which was purchased by the bride. After the wedding, a grand reception was held at Neelakanda Hall. Now Laxmi's parents plan to settle down in Kerala. Laxmi can speak Malayalam now. The couple runs Kalasakthi School of Arts with more than 25 people as students. They are busy with their stage programmes in India and abroad. Meanwhile, Laxmi has acted in filmmaker Amal Neerad's film BIG B. Laxmi proudly says that she cooks many of Kerala food like sambar, aviyal and rasam etc.
