I am so excited to continue my blog of this beautiful Asian wedding …
Professional photo’s coming soon…
After an entire week filled with celebration and ceremonial procedure, beginning with the civil ceremony at Hedsor House, in Taplow, Buckinghamshire, followed by the colourful splendour of the Asian rituals and traditions held at home in a grand marquee, the magnificent finale of this most spectacular wedding was upon us.
The morning celebrations began with the enthusiastic Dhol players leading the procession; then followed the delightful entrance of the handsome groom with his family, who waited patiently for his beautiful bride to make her entrance – and what an entrance it was!
Adorned with jewels from head to toe, a lavishly hand embroidered deep red, raw-silk lengha and chiffon headscarf, and looking like she had just walked out of an epic Bollywood movie, the bride was escorted by her brothers into the main hall to muted gasps from the congregated guests, toward her regally dressed groom wearing an equally opulent sherwani silk coat. The vision was breathtakingly beautiful.
Following the traditional Asian wedding, the guests enjoyed a delicious light lunch prepared by the in-house caterers of the Riverside venue.
Guests and the bridal party then departed for a change of attire, returning after a couple of hours in their magnificent regalia for the evening reception and party, this time dressed in a Black Tie theme of evening gowns and tuxedos.
Once the three course evening meal was taken and the speeches were delivered, the party finally commenced to the sounds of the ever popular Kudos Productions. The atmosphere was electric and everyone danced the night away wholeheartedly.
It really was an unforgettable day filled with a lot of warmth and love and the happy couple were a joy to watch as they fully enjoyed the day they waited over seven years to see.
Despite the multi-faceted aspects to this wedding, I had the time of my life playing an inaugural part in the planning stages, particularly as I had a broken foot in heavy plaster, crutches and wearing a full medical boot for around three months of the arrangements!
Love Lydia would like to wish Nirmal and Mashaal a very long and joyous marriage filled with love and laughter and many beautiful memories.
