Along with the same, he penned, "Some of my favourite #shoefies w my (scroll to see our first one ever) ...

I could tell you exactly where we were and what we were feeling at the time I took these."
A lot of wishes from their family members have been pouring in for the couple. Sonam’s mother, Sunita wrote, “Happy happy anniversary.

Love is about how much you love each other every single day.” Anil Kapoor too wished his kids on social media and penned, “It’s been such a fantastic year for you both, and if it's any indication of the life to come, you have so much love, happiness, success (and shoes) to look forward to!

Lately, during an interaction with MensXP, Anand had revealed, "It's funny. Sonam is always messing on my plans. Last year, she had canned right after the wedding. We didn't do a honeymoon. We did a really short one in Japan.” He had further gone to add, "This year, we were again planning to go to Japan but then her 'Zoya Factor' schedule is there and it has changed a bit. We are not going in June, but we will go after her birthday. We are so fortunate that with our schedules, we travel so much and get to spend time. We will be in London for the anniversary. London is a little break for her. We will surely do a Japan trip at the end of the year." (Do Read: Arjun Kapoor Makes Fun Of His Wedding Rumours With Malaika Arora, Says He Is Bald Right Now)
Earlier, in an interview with Vogue, Sonam had revealed their first date details. The actress said, “I was apparently wearing the worst sneakers he had ever seen. I keep telling him that he fell in love with me despite my bad sneaker game. That day, walking and talking in London, I knew he was the love of my life. He apparently knew the first time we spoke on the phone. It was just so easy.”
In an interview with Firstpost, Sonam talked about adding her husband’s surname to her name, and Anand adding her name into his. She had stated, "Anand and I had a very long conversation you know, and we obviously want to have kids eventually, and he had this one friend who had a very long name, his mother’s name, father’s name, blah blah blah. I said, see anyways it’s a patriarchal concept, I have my father’s last name, I don’t have my mother’s name, and I want to be part of your family as well, and he wanted to be a part of mine.” (Don't Miss: Varun Dhawan Celebrating Natasha Dalal's Birthday Makes Us Want To Say 'Boyfriend Ho Toh Aisa')
In an interview earlier, Sonam had shared what attracted her towards Anand, “He’s non-judgemental—with everybody. Very open-minded and progressive. I’m a little conservative and close-minded about a few things, and he’s taught me to see the other side, to look at things with a lot more compassion and care, to be a little more pragmatic and practical, as I can be very emotional and quick to judge sometimes, which is not nice.”
Here's wishing the happiest first wedding anniversary to Sonam and Anand!
