Just as the rainbow peeks out from under storm clouds, a gay couple in Telangana has taken the Indian LGTBQI community by storm by holding a real, honest to goodness promising ceremony! India, only recently in 2018, revoked the draconian law that made homosexuality illegal under article 377 but it has a way to go before the constitution recognises and confers the same legality to homosexual couples that it gives to heterosexual pairings.

But Supriyo Chakraborty and Abhay Dange would not let a pesky little thing like that get in the way of true love. They have been together since 2012, having met on a dating app and decided that the time was now to declare to the world that their love is real and here to stay.

Amidst family and friends, Supriyo and Abhay held a promising ceremony – to have and hold each other for and always. It was a full-blown affair with sangeet, mehendi, and ring ceremony! It warms our hearts to see love accepted and celebrated in all forms. So, check out the stunning pictures of Supriyo and Abhay who became the first gay couple to get married in Telangana, India that was all captured beautifully by ShaadiSaga vendor Sahni Studio, Hyderabad
