Explaining why Shweta's wedding was significant to them, the designer duo wrote, "1997: More from the spectacular wedding of Shweta Bachchan and Nikhil Nanda!

We've known her and Abhishek since they were in their early teens, so doing this wedding went beyond work for us and it will always hold a very special place in our hearts"Nikhil and his family were very close to us and our first interiors project was redecorating their home. So this wedding meant a lot to us. It was the first event we ever got to design from end to end. We had a great time. It was a fantastic creative and emotional experience!" (sic)
